More Gettysburg History, Only Civilian Killed during the Battle of Gettysburg

I mentioned before while learning more history of my new hometown Gettysburg, that there was only one civilian killed during the entire battle.

One of the Gettysburg blogs I frequent, the Gettysburg Daily, just posted a segment on the house she was killed in (not lived in), including pictures of the damage left behind of the fatal shot that killed her.

I love reading this blog everyday.  It gives great insight on the history around here, which I deeply want to learn about.  I’m amazed that living in Westminster so long, I never once came up to Gettysburg.  Honestly I never knew it was so close.  Now that I live here, at least I’ll have all the time in the world to explore and learn.
