Gettysburg Times (Newspaper) - August 20, 2008, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania BY HILLEL ITALIE AP National Writer NEW YORK ( AP) — The suspense didn’t quite compare to the identity of “ Deep Throat,” but we now know the name of Bob Woodward’s fourth investigative work on the Bush administration, just three weeks before the book’s release. “ The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006- 2008” will be published Sept. 8 by Simon & Schuster with an announced first printing of 900,000 copies. Simon & Schuster is keeping the book under strict embargo — although such embargoes are often broken — and had even held back the title. “ There has not been such an authoritative and intimate account of presidential decision- making since the Nixon tapes and the Pentagon Papers,” Woodward’s longtime editor, Alice Mayhew, said Tuesday in a statement. “ This is the declassification of what went on in secret, behind the scenes.” According to Simon & Schuster, Woodward’s book “ takes readers deep inside the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the intelligence agencies and the U. S. military headquarters in Iraq. “ Based on extensive interviews with participants, contemporaneous notes and secret documents, the book traces the internal debates, tensions and critical turning points in the Iraq War during an extraordinary two- year period.” The Washington Post, where Woodward currently serves as an associate editor, will run excerpts on Sept. 7. That night, Woodward will be interviewed on CBS television’s “ 60 Minutes.” ( Both CBS and Simon & Schuster are owned by Viacom, Inc.) Woodward’s three previous works on the Bush years have been No. 1 best sellers on The New York Times hardcover nonfiction list and their tone, like the president’s approval ratings, has evolved from the essentially positive take of the first book, “ Bush at War,” to the far more critical “ State of Denial,” which came out in 2006. Woodward’s literary representative, Washington attorney Robert Barnett, declined comment when asked whether President Bush, who spoke with Woodward for the first two volumes, had been interviewed for the current book. According to Barnett, Woodward only finished “ The War Within” three weeks ago. Woodward is also known for his Pulitzer Prize- winning reporting with fellow Washington Post writer Carl Bernstein. In the 1970s, they collaborated on the groundbreaking stories of the Watergate scandal that helped bring down President Nixon and on two best sellers about the Nixon administration, “ All the President’s Men” and “ The Final Days.” ( Continued from Page C2) Oct. 3, 7: 30 p. m.

GETTYSBURG TIMES • WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 2008 C3 Arts & Leisure Calendar Below, a sampling of performances to be featured at the Gettysburg Music Muster, Aug. 23. Douglas Jimerson and the Civil War Comrades – The day will begin with a performance from Douglas Jimerson and the Civil War Comrades. Douglas Jimerson and The Civil War Comrades are a fixture in the National Parks of the mid- Atlantic region. In the past year they have been featured on PBS- TV and at the bicentennial birthday celebration for Robert E. Lee. They are scheduled to perform for ceremonies in our nation’s capital for the bicentennial birthday celebration for Abraham Lincoln. To commemorate the occasion of Lincoln’s upcoming birthday, the group is releasing another CD this fall, “ A Lincoln Portrait.” The Susquehanna Travellers perform the music of the 19th Century America focusing on Civil War era and Irish music. The musicians are civil war re- enactors and members of the 87th Pa. Volunteer Infantry. The band got its start playing traditional tunes around the campfire at Civil War re- enactments and, with the support and encouragement of other re- enactors, the lads decided to officially form the Susquehanna Travellers. While the band certainly enjoys playing for the public, they feel most at home playing for their fellow re- enactors around the campfire. Victorian Dance Ensemble – This year marks the tenth appearance of the Victorian Dance Ensemble at the Gettysburg Music Muster. Founded in 1995, the Ensemble has presented dance demonstrations for the Smithsonian Institution, National Park Service, Civil War Preservation Trust, Pennsylvania Civil War Trails Project, National Civil War Museum, Maryland Historical Society, Pamplin Park, North Carolina’s Museum of the Cape Fear, and numerous other historic sites and museums. The Ensemble also provides dance instruction and floor managers for balls, including three of the premiere vintage balls in the nation, the Sons of Union Veterans’ Remembrance Day Ball in Gettysburg, the Union League’s Abraham Lincoln Ball in Philadelphia and the Civil War Preservation Ball in the Rotunda of the Pennsylvania Capitol in Harrisburg. In addition to dancing, the Ensemble’s members present programs on such topics as Civil War era fashions, jewelry, newspapers, photography, weapons, flags, and the roles of civilians, using original artifacts from their own extensive collections. 2nd South Carolina String Band – New to the 2008 lineup is the 2nd South Carolina String Band. This year, the 2nd South Carolina String Band is celebrating their twentieth season as an active, vibrant member of the Civil War reenacting community. Though most of them no longer take the field with musket and bayonet as they once did with their namesake unit, Co. I, 2nd S. C. Volunteer Infantry, they are still as impressive a musical force at major reenactment events as they once were a military one. No strangers to performing on the battlefield, in July of 1998, they were the featured band at the installation and dedication of the Longstreet Monument in Pitzer’s Woods, and again a few years later at the dedication of the last monument to be placed on the Gettysburg battlefield - that of the 11th Mississippi, on West Confederate Avenue. Dance ensemble, regimental band among music muster performers Title, print run announced for new Woodward book AP P HOTO “ The War Within,” by Bob Woodward.
