GARLACH FAMILY 150TH GETTYSBURG ANNIVERSARY MUG

$10.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: ST501103

The descendants of Catherine Garlach produced this mug for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. One of the town's best known stories features General Alexander Schimmelfennig (top left) hiding in the Garlach's woodshed in their back yard (center) behind the Garlach's brick house (top right).

As recounted in Anna Garlach's memoirs, Catherine Garlach (bottom right) fed Schimmelfennig food under the pretense of feeding pigs. Schimmelfennig briefly hid in a culvert on Baltimore Street, and then stayed for several days in a shed on the Anna Garlach property, avoiding capture. There is a marker outside the Garlach house commemorating this event (bottom left). After the battle, he rejoined the corps, much to the pleasure of the troops who thought he was dead.

The ceramic mug holds 16 ounces of water, coffee or pig slop. It measures 3.25 inches diameter and nearly 5 inches tall.
