On my relatively recent walk to the Henry Spangler farm from Confederate Avenue, I got some great shots of rural Gettysburg life. Here’s a view of some of the outbuildings. The large structure at right isn’t the main house, and I’m not sure of its purpose. It seems as if most of the buildings existed in 1863 except for the barn which was rebuilt after a fire. I particularly like this scene with reds, greens, whites, and browns, and have always been a fan of white picket fences.
