This is an 8 page copy of the GETTYSBURG COMPILER in fair to good condition. All print is legible but there is a small piece of the front page missing that meas. approx. 1.00 x 2.00 inches. There are also some separations along the fold.

On page 3 is an article about the removal of Confederate dead from the field and how some Confederates were shipped through Baltimore and others Philadelphia. He also states that some Confederates are buried in the US National Cemetery by mistake. Rev. Captain Minnigh explains that any soldier found wearing the blue of the Union or a Corps badge and who was not identified was buried in the National Cemetery. He states that Confederates who wore captured blue uniforms were no doubt, by mistake, buried in the cemetery. He goes on to say that since on which side a man fought will be of no consequence on resurrection day he is okay with the situation. Article is about three-quarters of a column long.  [ad][ph:L]
