From Lee’s Headquarters Museum Collection housed in the Widow Thompson house. This was one of the oldest private collections in Gettysburg. First opened in 1925 by Clyde Daley. The museum and property was sold to Eric Larson in 1945 who built a hotel at the back of the property. Throughout the years the museum remained virtually unchanged. In 1995 the Larson’s sold the property and the new owner de-accessed some items to facilitate an extensive renovation of the museum. This is one of those items. More recently the property was acquired by the American Battlefield Trust who restored the building and property to its 1863 appearance.  [jet]
