    Opinions of General Richard H. Anderson's Conduct, July 2, 1863

    I recently watched an NPS 'Battle Walk' video regarding the second day at Gettysburg, Perry's Florida Brigade Attacks - Gettysburg Battle Walk with Ranger Daniel Welch. <> At about 1:25:30 in this interesting video, Ranger Welch points out that General Richard H. Anderson, whose forces were...

    Born On The Fourth Of July, OH, I'm A Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Washington and Franklin depicted inside our struggle for birth as a nation. No patriotic trumpeting beneath, instead somber, cautioning lines. We picked a date which continued in significance through our still brief History- into the Civil War, entrenched in our citizenry and for which we must...

    What was the target of Pickett's Charge

    There has long been a consensus among historians that the aiming point of Pickett's Charge was the Copse of Trees where Gettysburg battlefield godfather John Batchelder had the High Water Mark monument placed and arranged to have a wrought iron fence placed around the trees. But recently, there...

    A Gettysburg Woman's July 4th, 1863, Who Is She, Please?

    One of the most evocative post battle images, by Tyson Brothers, a disheveled Gettysburg. Letterman Hospital's white outline and a stench we're told lasted until the first hard frosts reminded citizens their town now had a ' before ' and ' after '. And July 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Love these accounts...

    Hi everyone. I'm very new here and I wanted to have access to historians, reenactors and people with an interest in the Civil War so I joined up. I've been working on an interactive project (video game) specifically about the battle in and around Gettysburg. I am working on a smaller 10 minute...

    Will an appeal to developer's patriotism save 17 acres @ Camp Letterman?

    The Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association (GBPA) is campaigning to save 17 acres of the Camp Letterman site at Gettysburg. The organization is urging supporters to write to the president of S&A Homes of State College, Pennsylvania, whose plans for a 191-acre townhouse development would...

    " Georgeanna, Your Sister Is Dead ", Ginnie Wade , July 3, 1863

    Tipton's era ( ish ) photo of Georgeanna McClellan's half of the duplex shows the old basement doors entered from the street. Her sister's body was carried there, a battle making burial hazardous. Mary Filey Wade, Harry Wade, Ike Brinkerhof, Lewis Kenneth McClellan and mother Georgia huddled...

    " We Came To Bury You, Whitey ", Gettysburg's Un-Dead Soldier

    We'd been documenting burials, with men carried to their graves since anyone thought it a good idea, digging them. Image from the Bayeux Tapestry is Edward the Confessor's grand procession in 1066- in July, 1863, a less famous personage was carried to his grave, by the Second Corps Hospital, in...

    91st Pennsylvania on Little Round Top, Blended photos

    These are blended from a photo I found on the web of the 91st Monument on Little Round Top, I'm not sure when the original was taken, but it appears to be one of the reunions. The modern shot was taken by me a couple years ago at Gettysburg. The shots don't quite line up perfectly but not too...

    124th New York at Gettysburg

    Again playing with the software. The two originals are from an 1897 reunion and 1905. The 1905 pic was taken by Tipton. Their monument is just above the Triangle Field by Devil's Den. Enjoy.

    Gettysburg Question.

    In the Gettysburg movie, Col. Chamberlain and his brother Lt. Thomas Chamberlain of the 20th Maine are caught up in Pickett's Charge. I had read somewhere that in reality they were there too, to request more ammo, but I can't find it anywhere. Were the two of them actually at Pickett's Charge?

    GRAPHIC Rose Farm Dead

    I realize this has been done a million times, but I finally got the modern shot lined up, so bear with me lol This is Gardner's photo of Confederate Dead on the Rose Farm superimposed over my modern color shot. The cracked rock is the anchor point that I used as a reference. Enjoy!
