If you’ve driven along Confederate Avenue near the Florida State Memorial, you may have noticed a dirt path along the left side of the road, marked by a sign that says “Spangler House.” On my last visit my curiosity got the better of me, and off I went. The Henry Spangler is a beautiful farm that was also a rallying point for the Southerners of Gen. Pickett’s division on the afternoon of July 3RD. Unfortunately, this beautiful barn wasn’t standing during the battle, but was rebuilt after the sparks of combat sent the original barn up in flames.
