I like this artsy shot :-). What’s sort of eerie is that this tree in the Peach Orchard seems to be leaning toward the camera in a kind of aggressive manner, as if to say “look at me!” Two pops of red can be seen in the background; the Sherfy barn at center and the Klingel barn off in the right distance. The white Klingel house is visible to the left of the barn. Wheatfield Road runs from left to right, and the flank marker seen at the edge of the orchard is that of the 141ST Pennsylvania.


Co. E, 26TH North Carolina Infantry

Born abt. 1841 --- Died July 08, 1863 at age 27 

Though Pvt. Tally initially survived the 26TH’s mauling both at Reynolds’ Woods and during the Pickett-Pettigrew-Trimble Charge, he succumbed to his wounds at the age of 22. Married to a lady named Matilda, he’d already lost both of his parents before the war even began. Pvt. Tally was buried at Richmond’s Hollywood Cemetery.
