HAGERSTOWN, Md. - An author from our Washington County area was in Hagerstown Wednesday to celebrate the release of his new book. 

George F. Franks the 3rd held a book signing in downtown Hagerstown for his new book called Battle of Falling Waters. It's a story of events during the final engagement of the Gettysburg campaign that took place in Washington County. 

"The Gettysburg campaign usually gets a paragraph or maybe a page on any book about the Gettysburg or Gettysburg campaign but at the time it was considered a very important battle by Abraham Lincoln, by Robert E. Lee and also by George Meade," said Franks. 

The book also includes the use of first-hand accounts, detailed maps and photographs to bring the crucial battle to life.
