Just another scenic afternoon at the Bryan farm. The rustic hand-pump is located at the old farmhouse, and across the road stands the barn with visible bullet-holes. Beyond the farm, the fields of the Pickett-Pettigrew-Trimble Charge spread out, while at top right we can see where battlefield meets town and vintage meets modern. General Lee’s equestrian statue along Confederate Avenue is visible at top left, while Emmitsburg Road also makes an appearance (white vehicle clearly marks its place).


Died September 03, 1863

Co. I, 21ST Georgia Infantry

Sgt. Graves enlisted in July 1861 and was married to Sarah. He is one of the few Confederates buried at Gettysburg’s National Cemetery by mistake (this time in the Pennsylvania section), and still lies there today. His grave marker says “J. Graves, Co. C, Regt. 1.”
