I really like this photo taken along West Confederate Avenue, which shows (from left to right) Little Round Top and Big Round Top in the distance, the Albemarle Artillery (Wyatt’s Battery), part of the Tennessee State Memorial (at center, pinkish slab beside tree) and part of Confederate Avenue. There’s nothing better than a slow, relaxing Gettysburg battlefield tour on a blue-sky summer day. You can also see the iconic stone walls and (if you click for a larger photo) wooden fences in the field.


(Commissioned 2nd Lt.)
CO. I, 143rd Pennsylvania Infantry

Born May 24, 1818 --- Died August 20, 1863 at 42

Lt. Harrison was married to a lady named Phoebe and had six children, Daniel (who was 24 at the time of the battle and was a likely a soldier himself), Antrim (age 22, likely also a soldier), Mary (age 19), Samuel (age 17), Sarah (age 13), and Martha (age 9). He died at Camp Letterman after being wounded on the 1st of July and was later buried at Scott Cemetery, Huntington Mills, Pennsylvania.
