With a lifelong love of history, and a particular interest in the Civil War, Kofman chose to write a historical novel as a way to educate people in an engaging fashion about an epochal event in American history.

Lee at Gettysburg, has been relegated to the margins of history.

Written from Meade’s perspective, Kofman offers readers an intriguing historical fiction novel pulling from historical documents including written letters by Meade to the person he most trusted in life, his wife Margaret.
