If you’ve been keeping up with Gettysburg news, you probably know that the motel which once surrounded Gen. Lee’s headquarters has been torn down and the ground restored to its original state, and that the non-historic dormers were removed from the house. It’s wonderful to see the progress! Here’s a photo from before its great renovation. This is one of my favorite structures in Gettysburg due not only to its historical value but also because there’s something special about old stone homes.


Co. C, 11TH Massachusetts Infantry

Born abt. 1841 --- Died July 27/29, 1863

Pvt. Flemming enlisted in June 1861 and may have been born in Ireland. He was a boot-maker by trade, and his final resting place is at Gettysburg’s National Cemetery.
