Licensed Battlefield Guides Eric and Jim return for the start of Season Two of The Battle of Gettysburg Podcast with a deep dive into the often-overlooked fighting around what is commonly known as Barlow’s Knoll. In this the first of two parts, they discuss the Blocher Family, who lived on the property during the battle, and the history of the nearby Adams County Almshouse. They also delve into the background of Major General Francis Barlow, the troops under his command, and what led to his fateful decision to move to the knoll on July 1, 1863, that now bears his name.
