Growing up in the Gettysburg area, John D. Lippy, Jr., heard many stories from Civil War veterans who returned to visit the Battlefield. Among the most memorable tales was the story of Sallie Ann Jarrett, the faithful canine mascot of the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. Veterans recounted how, in the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, Sallie had become separated from the regiment during its retreat from Oak Ridge. The soldiers feared she had been killed, but days later she was found alive, guarding her dead and wounded companions. John Lippy felt moved to write Sallie’s story and publish it himself.

From Sallie’s puppy days as a new “recruit” with the 11th through her final battle at Hatcher’s Run, Virginia, this is an engaging true story of a dog whose soldiers never forgot her faithfulness. It will appeal to anyone who has known the loyalty of a special dog, to readers with an interest in the daily life of Civil War soldiers, and to visitors who have seen the bronze statue of Sallie that still holds a place of honor on the Gettysburg Battlefield today ( )
