Jennie Wade

House and Monument,
Gettysburg, PA.
Jennie Wade was the only citizen of the town of Gettysburg who was killed during the three day's fighting there.  While attending to household duties at her home she was killed by a bullet on the morning of July 3rd, 1863.  The monument marking her last resting place, is in the Citizen's Cemetery, nearby.  The house is now used as a museum and contains many marks of the great conflict.

  1. Interesting card. I am surprised that I never heard of her before.
