Here we see the garden at the Lydia Leister house / Gen. Meade’s headquarters. This is a nice bucolic scene, I think . . . Taneytown Road and the Peter Frey barn can be seen in the background. Unfortunately, while I was visiting I didn’t take the time to notice what was in the garden, but I’m sure everything was well-researched for authenticity’s sake. The picket fence gives the scene a homey appeal.
