Lawrence Korczyk has degrees in Economics and Business
Administration, but his real love is American History. After
a 30-year career in business, he and his wife Lori moved to
Gettysburg to pursue his avid interest in Civil War history.
He was a reenactor with the 2nd Rhode Island Infantry, a
member of the Robert E. Lee Civil War Round Table and
chairman of the James I. Robertson Jr. Literary Prize for
Confederate History. He studied for and passed the exam to
become a Licensed Battlefi eld Guide at Gettysburg National
Military Park and was recently elected VP of the Association
of Licensed Battlefi eld Guides. He has this to say about
his current book: “People love lists! We all perhaps
remember that famous segment during the David Letterman show
where he would list the “Top Ten” on a specifi c subject.
These segments are the inspiration for our book on the
Battle of Gettysburg, titled Top Ten at Gettysburg, in which
seven authors/historians on the battle each put together a
list of fi ve subjects, each comprising ten elements of the
list. It was a fascinating project to work on and provides a
concise history of the battle from a unique perspective. The
talk will involve the origins of our book and many
interesting vignettes on the greatest battle ever to take
place on the North American continent.”
