Thomas Publications.  Softcover, 56 pp.  Compiled by Timothy H. Smith.

This book contains selected images from the Adams County Historical Society  Although the Battle of Gettysburg is named for the town near which it occurred, most of the heavy fighting actually occurred on the private property of men such as Edward McPherson, Joseph Sherfy and Nicholas Codori. Their farms suffered great damage as a result of the fighting, their structures were used as hospitals and their fields were converted into graveyards. Following the battle, however, little sympathy was given to their plight and little attempt was made by state or federal authorities to compensate them for their losses.
