General Meade's Headquarters, Gettysburg, PA.

This postcard went through the mail in 1951.

It notes, "General Meade with his staff arrived upon the field at 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."
