General Lee's Headquarters, Gettysburg, PA.

 I found these two postcards, both showing General Lee's Headquarters in Gettysburg recently.  Both are unused.  We saw Lee's Headquarters on our recent trip, but the building is currently not open- though I am sure it will be the next time we are in town!

The top card notes-

General Lee with his splendid army, advanced along the Chambersburg Pike, and for a short time occupied this picturesque little stone house, fronting on the Pike (now the Lincoln Highway).  It stands on Seminary Ridge midway between the Seminary buildings and the old tapeworm railroad cut.  One of the rarest collections of Gettysburg relics is on display here.
