December 05, 2014

I love this shot of the Orange Artillery, which also shows the Eternal Light Peace Memorial, one of many iconic Gettysburg fence-lines, and the marker for Gen. Rodes’ Division of Gen. Ewell’s 2ND Corps. The Parrott Rifle, having recently returned to its rightful place after being whisked away for cleaning and repainting, reflects the autumn sun. I think it’s wonderful how, no matter how long it may take, Gettysburg’s artillery pieces are always given the attention they deserve, fixed up and returned to their posts to represent an integral part of the battle.


Co. H, 45TH North Carolina Infantry

Born 1836 --- Died July 07, 1863

Pvt. Terrell’s death deprived four-year-old Julia of her father, also making wife Frances a premature widow. He had enlisted in February 1862 and suffered a gunshot wound to the head during the battle. This man was later reburied at Raleigh’s Oakwood Cemetery, where many Gettysburg casualties lie.
