As we started walking the second shop we came to happened to be a bookstore. We went in and I found a good selection of War of 1812 books. Not surprising as Havre De Grace suffered a British raid during the War of 1812 in which Admiral Cockburn plundered the town. I found the first book shown, " Final Invasion", a book on the Battle of Plattsburgh. I turned the corner, and there was a whole aisle of Civil War books! Now my wife was already bored and left the store. I started to do a quick scan of the books and figured I would quickly check the rest of the store. It was a very small store, after all. Or so I thought until I went around the next corner and found another room, this filled with military and general history books. I dare say my mouth went dry and found myself getting very nervous at the time I was spending hunting through the shelves. There were many Osprey books, of which I picked up four. I quickly picked up some other books, as shown below. Next visit I will have to take off by myself so I can browse at leisure. I best start putting some money aside.
