Apparently, by July 15th, the legend of John Burns was already spreading far and wide. That was the day that Mathew Brady stopped at the Burns' house and took several photographs of Burns still showing evidence of his three wounds. In the uncropped version on the left, Burns and his wife are seen on the upstairs porch, John is sitting with his crutches on one side and his flintlock rifle on the other while his wife stands in the doorway. Not nearly as noticeable are the two men seen sitting on the side steps. The close up of them on the right reveals that one of the men is Mathew Brady along with his vested assistant who is featured in several other Gettysburg photos. Of additional interest in the close up is Brady's portable darkroom standing behind the Burns' well.
