Gettysburg in Adams County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Mary Virginia “Jennie” Wade

The fighting was terrible and it was very dangerous, but we were determined to do our part to keep our soldiers fed during the battle.
On July 3, a bullet went through two doors and struck me in the back, killing me instantly.
