Since this is the Gettysburg forum and we have the blessing and benefit of many folks here who have spent years reading and studying the battle, I thought we could put those resources to use. I know I have been interested in the battle and the battlefield ever since 1999 when I researched relatives who fought in the battle, but there's still tons of questions I have about the battle, the national military park and the town of Gettysburg. I'm sure others do, as well, both newbies and those who have been around the block a few times, so how about let's make this a thread to ask--and answer--some of them? In order for this to work, a couple ground rules: no question is too stupid to ask, humor is good but taunting is not, anyone can answer a question not just "experts," citing sources would be a good thing so people can check for themselves. The topic is Gettysburg--the town, the battle, the aftermath, the NMP, the soldiers, etc. I'll start! I have heard about a farm site on the battlefield called the Masonheimer farm, but I haven't been able to locate it, and I don't know whether it was there at the time of the battle of not. Anyone know? Thanks!
