Jenny Wade House and Monument, Gettysburg, PA.

This postcard was sent from Gettysburg in 1960!  The Jenny Wade story is a sad one....

It says on the back-

Miss Jenny Wade was killed the morning of July 3rd, while attending to household duties in a little brick house on Baltimore Street near the National Cemetery.  She was the only citizen of Gettysburg who was killed during the battle.  The house is now used as a war museum, and shows hundreds of marks of bullets and shell.  The monument marks the last resting place in the Citizen's Cemetery.
