“Too Much for Human Endurance” is the story of George Spangler, his family, and their farm during and after the 3-day Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. What makes this volume so valuable is that it not only establishes the strategic importance of the property, but introduces the readers to the untold stories of the Spanglers, the soldiers who were brought there wounded and dying, and the medical personnel who labored to save their lives.
