Last night walking home from supper, I took photos of the houses in the historical section of town. There are signs on many of the homes indicating that they were standing here during the Civil War. As we walked by these homes, we realized that you can still see the marks the bullets made so many years ago. Often, next to the house there will be a sign explaining what role the family, who occupied the house at that time, had in the history of this town. Many of the churches were converted into hospitals after the battle of Gettysburg. Solders from both sides of the conflict were treated and often remained here for months as they slowly recovered from their injuries.
