Mary Virginia “Jennie” Wade. Jennie was the only Gettysburg civilian to be killed outright during the battle. In 21st Century wars, civilian deaths are very common, but during the Civil War, citizens were usually unscathed if they were able to stay out of harm’s way. However, on July 3 Jennie was kneading dough for biscuits at her sister’s home on Baltimore Street when she was killed instantly as a bullet passed through two wooden doors and struck her heart. That, unfortunately, is usually all visitors hear about this “Gettysburg Maid”—a mere sentence or two.
Now, with this book, Jennie Wade of Gettysburg: The Complete Story of the Only Civilian Killed during the Battle of Gettysburg, a visitor seeking more of her story may now be satisfied. The author has investigated as many sources as possible to write the full saga of Jennie’s life, death and all three burials.

According to the history books, the story of the Battle of Gettysburg ended when the armies departed on July 4,1863. But for the citizens of Gettysburg, their story was just beginning. Many survived three days (July 1-3, 1863) of battle that raged around and through their farms and homes and were left alone to pick up the pieces. To a casual observer, Elizabeth Thorn was no different than all of the other civilians doing their part to restore their town from the devastation of war. However, upon further investigation, she was very different. No other woman in town was a six-month pregnant mother, who simultaneously managed both a household and a cemetery, and acted as sole caretaker to two aging parents. No other woman was asked to dig nearly a hundred soldiers’ graves. Elizabeth performed all of these strenuous tasks in the heat and the stench of a battlefield of bodies left to rot in the hot summer sun. This is her story and the story of the Evergreen Cemetery, a small-town burial ground that acquired national fame...................84 pages
COSTER AVENUE, the smallest portion of the Gettysburg National Military Park, marks the site of some of the last fighting on July 1, 1863, the First Day of the great battle. There, in what was then a brickyard, Col. Charles Coster’s Union brigade made a forlorn and futile stand against the two Confederate brigades of Gen. Harry Hays and Col. Isaac Avery. Outnumbered by more than three to one, Coster’s brigade was shattered and sent reeling in a pell-mell retreat through the streets of Gettys- burg to the safety of Cemetery Hill. The action resulted in almost 800 casualties, most of them Union soldiers. Among the killed was Sgt. Amos Humiston of the 154th New York, who became celebrated as the father of the “Children of the Battle Field.”
In the decades following the Civil War, Coster Avenue—hidden away off a Gettysburg side street—languished as one of the least-visited parts of the Gettysburg National Military Park. In 1970, Mark H. Dunkelman, an artist and historian of the 154th New York, saw the roofing company that owned the property adjacent to Coster Avenue was building an addition to its ware- house. A blank concrete wall was going up about ten feet from the monument to the regiment he studied. Inspiration struck. Dunkelman designed a mural to cover the 80-feet-long wall. He and his artistic partner Johan Bjurman painted and installed the mural in 1988, the 125th anniversary of the battle. In the years since then, as exposure took its toll on the painting, Dunkel- man and Bjurman produced two newer versions of the mural, the current one rendered on glass.
In Gettysburg’s Coster Avenue: The Brickyard Fight and the Mural, Dunkelman tells the little-known story of the battle that inspired the mural and the saga of how the painting came to be and its several permutations. Published on the mural’s thirtieth anniversary, this book includes more than fifty photographs, many in color and previously unpublished, a map, and source notes to the text. Gettysburg’s Coster Avenue is the definitive account of this much admired public artwork, told by the mural’s creator in his own words.
The Medal of Honor is our country's highest military decoration for valor. Unfortunately, most of the recipients' names, lives and acts of valor, especially from the Civil War, are unknown to most Americans. The 71 men awarded the Medal of Honor and the 7 men awarded the reactivated Confederate Medal of Honor in the Gettysburg Campaign have faded into history. The author of this book, Roy E. Frampton, through extensive research and numerous photographs, brings the lives of these American heroes back from the past. May these stories serve that purpose by reminding us of a few ordinary men and their enduring acts of valor standing like Noble Pillars.
