    I'm always surprised at the "tumbledown" appearance also, I guess that basic everyday living and working kind of took precedent over making the cover of Good Housekeeping back then :smoke:. The concussion from artillery and massed musketry also had to take a toll on the dwellings too.

    What an outstanding photograph, I love seeing these Greg......a tip of the hat to you sir for doing this.

    Only one phrase comes to mind: "If I could have been a fly on the wall".

    [Early morning on July 1] "Near town, General Reynolds inquired of a Mr. George the way. … The General rode back into town up a back street (by Burns house) to the Emmitsburg road and out about a half mile, where he ordered his escort to tear down all the fences to make way for his troops to get to the Seminary." (First Corps, Carroll County, Maryland in the Civil War)

    "The General’s bugler, Nick, found John Burns wounded and searched for a doctor." (Henry C. Meyer, Gregg’s Headquarters, Cavalry)
