QuoteThere's often a skeptical scrinch of the nose and a bit of raised eyebrow when people hear that the definitive history of Harrisburg's experience during the Civil War has been written by a 14-year-old - just enough to indicate while the fact is surprising, even fascinating, the history's probably less than serious.Cooper Wingert, who just turned 15, is used to that. He got it a lot when he first began to self-publish local histories, but now that three of his titles have been published nationally, he gets it much less."The Confederate Approach on Harrisburg: The Gettysburg Campaign's Northernmost Reaches" was published by The History Press last year, followed this April by "Emergency Men!: The 26th Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia and the Gettysburg Campaign" and "Harrisburg and the Civil War: Defending the Keystone of the Union."
