Pennsylvania (Adams County), Abbottstown — The Beginning of the Lincoln Highway
The Lincoln Highway was the first coast-to-coast highway built in 1913. A group of visionary businessmen from the automotive industry, led by Henry B. Joy and Carl Fisher, formed the Lincoln Highway Association. The Association successfully spearheaded the creation of a publicly-funded road that stretched from New York City, NY to San Francisco, CA. The road would be the first transcontinental highway. The Association engaged in very little actual road building, but it did fire the public's . . . — Map (db m11715) HM

In the early hours of July 24, 1845, five men left their horses at Myers' Tavern, got into a wagon, and proceeded north to Bear Mountain. There they entered the cabin where Kitty Payne and her children slept, forced them into the wagon at gunpoint, and fled.

Born a slave in Virginia in 1816, Kitty Payne was freed by owner Mary Maddox in 1843. Mrs. Maddox settled Kitty's family in Adams County and filed manumission papers in the local court. Mrs. Maddox later deeded her property to a . . . — Map (db m38972) HM

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Cashtown — Roads West
The historic Cashtown Inn has been offering lodging and dining to weary travelers since the turn of the 19th Century. Roads were important to town development, just as the automobile was important to their prosperity. As roads brought travelers into the countryside, they needed places to stay and eat. Inns attracted businesses that served the traveling public, which, in turn, spurred the development of towns. After the birth of the automobile, more people than ever traveled for recreation.

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Fairfield — The Battle of Fountain Dale
Fountain Dale is located between Jack's Mountain and Beard's Hill, and is also connected to two major mountain gaps, Monterey Pass and Fairfield Gap, which would prove to be fighting ground all of it's own. Troops on both sides needed to keep the mountain gaps open for communication purposes, especially the Confederates in case of a retreat. Scouts and pickets used the outskirts of Fountain Dale to see the movements of troops that were coming from the direction of Emmitsburg, Fairfield and also . . . — Map (db m8512) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Fairfield — The Battle of Monterey Pass
On the morning of July 4, Union General Judson Kilpatrick's Cavalry Division consisting of General George Custer and Colonel Nathaniel Richmond's Brigades were ordered from Gettysburg to attack the wagon trains that were moving on the road between Fairfield and Waynesboro near Monterey Pass.

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "... It was enough to frighten us to death!"
On the afternoon of June 26, 1863, Confederate cavalry dashed up Chambersburg Street and into the square. Shocked and frightened citizens fled the streets. Sara Broadhead recorded in her diary: "They came with such horrid yells that it was enough to frighten us to death!" Confederate infantry soon followed, many busying themselves by shopping in local stores and paying the merchants with unwelcome Confederate money.

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "... you know nothing about the lesson anyhow."
"We will close...you know nothing about the lesson anyhow." With those words, Pennsylvania College Professor Michael Jacobs reluctantly gave in to the distraction of mounting cannon and musketry fire on the morning of July 1, 1863, and dismissed his mathematics class. The College soon took on a bizarre and unexpected role in the battle. Shortly after the dismissal of the classes, Pennsylvania Hall began an arduous month of service as a hospital for the wounded of both sides. More than 600 . . . — Map (db m32375) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...expecting to find all dead."
In 1863 this building was the home of the John and Martha Scott family, and Martha's sister, Mary McAllister. On the morning of July 1st, Mary McAllister went across the street to the Christ Lutheran Church to volunteer as a nurse. During the Union retreat through town that afternoon, Mary braved the combatants and bullets in the street and returned home to find her front step "...covered with blood," and cautiously entered, "...expecting to find [her family] all dead." Her fears were . . . — Map (db m18117) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...run home as quickly as you can."
The students of Rebecca Eyster's Young Ladies Seminary were studying in this "old Academy Building" on June 26, 1863. One of those students, Tillie Pierce, described the arrival of the Confederate troops from Seminary Ridge in her book, At Gettysburg: What A Girl Saw and Heard of the Battle. Mrs. Eyster immediately called her students to the front porch to see this 'event,' and told them, "Children, run home as quickly as you can." It did not require repeating. During the Battle, the . . . — Map (db m12003) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...sights and sounds...too horrible to describe..."
Four years after Gettysburg became the county seat in 1800, the first Adams County Courthouse was placed in Lincoln Square (one block to your right). In 1859 this larger building was erected to serve the growing populace. The arrival of the Union and Confederate armies in the summer of 1863 forced the courthouse into unconventional uses. On June 26th, Confederate troops temporarily held the town and according to Margaretta Kendelhart, "...Rebels...occupied the Court House during the night..." . . . — Map (db m19251) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...the busiest scene I ever witnessed..."
On July 8, 1863, the U.S. Sanitary Commission commandeered the three story Fahnestock Bros. buildings as their "stone house" for food and other supplies. From here these critical provisions were distributed daily to the many field hospitals in and around Gettysburg that serviced over 21,000 wounded left behind by both armies. The volume of life saving supplies arrived in such quantity that the stone rooms "...up to the ceilings were filled... the sidewalk was monopolized and even the street . . . — Map (db m32509) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...the most historic covered bridge in Pennyslvania..."
Built for the County by workers under David Stoner in 1852, the Sachs Bridge is an Adams County landmark. It was crossed by both armies during the battle of Gettysburg in 1863, and carried parts of the Army of Northern Virginia as it retreated. Before its 1996-97 rehabilitation, its deck was supported by a truss-lattice based on a design by architect Ithiel Town. After it washed nearly 100 yards downstream in a flooded Marsh Creek on June 18, 1996, workers salvaged the Sachs Bridge. Within a . . . — Map (db m8196) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...the pathos of those poor wounded men..."
Completed in 1836, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church's building is the oldest in Gettysburg used continuously for religious worship. During the battle of Gettysburg it became a haven for serving humanity. When the first wounded appeared along Chambersburg Street, the church's doors were thrown open to serve as a hospital. Within a few hours the chancel, pews and aisles were filled to capacity with stricken and suffering Union soldiers who remained under care under late July. On the Sunday, . . . — Map (db m18121) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "...what in your life you will never see again."
This building was the Professor Michael Jacobs residence which remained in the family from 1934 until 1901. One of the town's leading citizens, Professor Jacobs was a member of the Gettysburg College faculty from its foundation in 1832 until his death, and the organizer of the Gettysburg Gas Works in 1859. A keen observer and recorder of events and facts, Jacobs published the first book on the Gettysburg Campaign in the fall of 1863 and noted the temperature and weather at precise intervals . . . — Map (db m19253) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "by the skin of our teeth"
On July 1, 1863, Gettysburg's center square was the eye in the storm of panic and confusion that swirled in the town's streets and alleys as the routed Union 1st and 11th Corps fled toward the safety of Cemetery Hill. Some Union soldiers rallied here in an attempt to stem the Confederate pursuit. Union artillery deployed nearby and sent "grape shot" flying across the square. The relentless Confederate pressure, however quickly drove the defenders further down Baltimore Street. The pursuing . . . — Map (db m32458) HM

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "harboring Confederates"
This was the site of the GLOBE INN, one of Gettysburg's oldest hotel-taverns, originally owned and operated in 1798 by townfounder James Gettys, and traditionally the unofficial headquarters for the local Democratic party. Such political association made the GLOBE INN a favorite with Confederate officers during their occupation of Gettysburg. They patronized the Inn for food, drink, and lodging to the exclusion of all other hotel establishments (each with a Republican owner). Following the . . . — Map (db m32474) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "His recovery . . . is yet considered doubtful"
Among the hundreds of soldiers, nurses, and volunteers who worked at Camp Letterman was Private Justus Silliman of the 17th Connecticut Volunteers, a resident of New Canaan. Slightly wounded in the fighting on July 1st, he remained behind to care for his more critically wounded comrade, Samuel Comstock. Writing to his mother on August 11th, Silliman noted that "Sam is getting on about as usual. His recovery I believe is yet considered doubtful.

General George Sykes, commanding the 5th Corps, agreed to send a brigade to occupy the hill. Sykes' orders were intercepted by Colonel Strong Vincent, commanding the Third Brigade, First Division, Fifth Corps.

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "It seemed so awful..."
During the retreat on July 1st by the Union 11th Corps, this area was a mass of demoralized troops and military vehicles frantically trying to escape pursuing Confederate rifle fire. Captain Fred Winkler, 26th Wisconsin Regiment, stood here and paused to emotionally reflect upon the scene: "It seemed so awful... It was the most humiliating step I ever took." The sketch shown here is the only 1863 contemporary view of the town north along Carlisle Street known to exist. The scene created by . . . — Map (db m32436) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "The Great Peace Jubilee"
On July 1-4, 1913, the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg was celebrated with the first joint reunion for all Union and Confederate veterans, many of whom fought here in 1863. 53,407 veterans attended. 44,713 Union and 8,694 Confederate. A huge encampment of 6,600 tents, spread over 280 acres, was erected to hyour and feed them.

Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "The sight of blood never again affected me"
With the departure of the two armies following the battle, the burden of caring for the wounded fell largely on the shoulders of the local civilians. Although much attention has been paid to the United States Sanitary Commission and the Christian Commission, little notice has been given to the area citizens whose houses and barns were used as field hospitals. Sally Myers, a young woman of 21 in 1863, was one of the many local residents who nursed the wounded at Camp Letterman. In later years . . . — Map (db m19254) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — "uncertainty and dread"
Following the retreat of Union forces to Cemetery Hill on the afternoon of July 1, 1863, the Confederates occupied the town of Gettysburg until early morning, July 4th. The main Confederate battle line facing the Union forces on Cemetery Hill ran east to west here, along High and Middle Streets. Life for Gettysburg citizens during Confederate occupation was both confining and dangerous. Families sought safety in their cellars. Bullets flew across the streets and errant shells occasionally . . . — Map (db m18129) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — “ . . . I Am Going To Die” — Saint Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church
Erected in 1853, this church served as a field hospital during and after the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. While the church was substantially altered in 1925, much of the original Civl War era structure remains intact. Within its walls some 200 wounded Union and Confederate soldiers were treated by army surgeons and other volunteer personnel including nuns from the Sisters of Charity of nearby Emmitsburg.

The original German Reformed Church located here in 1814, served as a “Union brick church” with the town’s Lutheran congregation until 1848. The core of the present building, erected in 1851, was newly refurbished at the time of the battle. On July 1st, following the Confederate occupation of Gettysburg, Dr. Abraham Stout, Surgeon 153rd PA., opened the church for a hospital at the urging of one of his captors. It was a welcome action. Dr. Stout recalled, “In less than a half . . . — Map (db m65780) HM

On the morning of July 1st, Gettysburg resident Jennie Wade and her family fled their town home to this brick double house shared by her sister Georgia McClellan, to distance themselves from the fighting. The Union retreat to Cemetery Hill soon placed Jennie and the rest of the household in the direct path of danger. Despite the menace of stray bullets that constantly struck the house walls, Jennie busied herself furnishing water and baking biscuits for the many soldiers manning the nearby . . . — Map (db m37616) HM
Pennsylvania (Adams County), Gettysburg — “… the battle itself proved a relief.”
In 1863 this was the home of James and Catherine Foster and their daughter, Catherine. Prior to the battle the town was cut off from communications, and rumors of approaching “Rebels” and the whereabouts of the Union army prompted the younger Catherine to recall that “ … the suspense grew intolerable to which the battle itself proved a relief.” In light of subsequent events at the house, Catherine’s comment was an overstatement.

The High Street or “Common” School was Gettysburg’s first consolidated public school building. Prior to its erection in 1857 classes were held in individual buildings, often the home of the teacher. Like the rest of the town’s public facilities the school became a hospital on July 1, 1863, when Union wounded began arriving from the battlefield. By evening it housed Union and Confederate casualties, separated by floors. The school building was well suited for the task but the . . . — Map (db m65781) HM

This building was the home of the James Pierce family during the Battle of Gettysburg. Tillie Pierce, a 15 year old school girl at the time, provided a vivid account of events from those days. The alarm that “The Rebels Are Coming!” caused a mass exodus from Gettysburg by free, African-American citizens (8% of the population) who feared capture and enforced slavery.

This building was constructed in 1869 as a dormitory for “The National Homestead at Gettysburg,” a school for soldiers’ orphans established in 1866 in the brick building to your right. Among its first students were Alice, Frank and Frederick Humiston, the children of Sergeant Amos Humiston of the 154th New York Volunteers, killed at Gettysburg on July 1, 1863.
