At Hummelbaugh the pickets are pointed and the fence has a double skirt board.
Leister has a different top board set up.
welcome to the fences of Gettysburg tour lol.

Ay Carumba!

Next trip to Gettysburg I am taking the This Old House hosts with me. They can point out roof types, fence types, vine types, being an ex geology major, I can handle the rocks.

So is Pam's photo an example of a modified French gothic fence (with a sharp point 70 degree point)? The French gothic looks like an Indian arrowhead in the drawing, but in the photo it is more pointed.

Somehow all of this is making me better understand The Wheatfield action!

This is fun, @pamc153PA and @MRB1863 you should publish their own, "And you thought you knew Gettysburg" book series. I have the 2 book series that was previously published on monuments and other buildings,etc.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
