Here we have a unique boxed set of stereoview images of the Gettysburg battlefield as seen by tourists in the early 20th century.

Included in this set are 12 stereoviews of the Gettysburg battlefield about the turn of the century. All photos include photos of tourists on the battlefield and each depict a monumented or important area of the field. However, not all important microcosms of the battlefield are included in this set. The list below shows what is included. All stereoviews are published by Underwood & Underwood and have a copyright date of 1903.

All images show good contrast; it is clear that these images have remained in their box and have not had the chance to fade. All stereocards are in good condition with some minor wear to the edges.

  1. Spangler’s Spring: where boys in Blue and Gray drank together in pauses of the battle, Gettysburg
  2. Pennsylvania College: used as Hospital during the great bloody battle, Gettysburg. Includes description on reverse.

  12. Hancock Avenue looking towards High Water Mark: Hancock Ave, Bloody Angle, and “High Water Mark” clump of trees S. to Round Top, Gettysburg.

The box containing the views is intact and in good condition as well with wear to the container. The box has been designed so look like a book. The “spine” shows “Gettysburg Battlefield” and “Underwood and Underwood.”

A rare chance to own a full boxed set of Gettysburg stereoviews. [CLA] [PH:L]
