This is one of my favorite “artsy shots” from my October trip. Just moments after I explored the McPherson barn, I snapped this photo of the barn through an old, weathered fence. This is one of the images that inspire a strange sort of nostalgia in me . . . nothing modern (save for a much newer version of the fence) as far as the eye can see. I wonder how many wounded men might have lain here against a similar fence, their last sight being of the old McPherson barn, perhaps wishing they’d have the strength to go just a little further to receive medical care. Likewise, how many men noticed the barn from this angle while engaging in desperate combat?
