I'll have to drive up to Gettysburg again soon...the last time I was there the new Visitors' Center was still in its planning stages.
Also, one of my ancestors was in the battle there...a Captain for the Confederate Army who supposedly was eventually imprisoned in the Old Capitol Prison in Washington, DC.
I have never dug deep enough to get the entire story though...maybe you can point me in the right direction.
