Welcome to my collection of Linen Post Cards. When I was a child in the 50s my eccentric aunt Hannah sent Linen Post Cards to our house from her adventures. The simple watercolor effect they have gave me many hours of daydreams from her travels. I hope I can share a few with you. Yes cards and daydreams.
General Meade Headquarters. Gen. Meade with his stall arrived upon the field of Gettysburg from Tarreytown at midnight on the first day of battle and established his headquarters on the west side of Tarreytown Road, in the rear of Cemetery Hill. From this point he directed the battles of the second and third days. The homely little cottage, still preserved, shows the marks of shot and shell.
