Each year, VPR collaborates with the Vermont Humanities Council's statewide reading program, Vermont Reads. This year, the council is making two books available in recognition of the Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War. They are Paul Fleischman's Bull Run, a novel published in 1993, and The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane, a classic tale of the Civil War first published in 1895.

The Daniel Lady Farm, on the Hanover Road east of Gettysburg, was used as a Confederate Field Hospital. Robert E. Lee used this residence for a council of war on July 1, 1863.
