This sunset view of McPherson’s Ridge shows the much-improved view of General Lee’s headquarters. With Larson's Quality Inn and Appalachian Brewing Company removed, the old brownstone house stands out beside Route 30, just as it should. Other historic structures on this photo include the Krauth House (the brick home at center right) and the Lutheran Theological Seminary chapel (which doesn’t date from the battle, but is still impressive). Gettysburg at sunset . . . it has a beauty all its own.


Died July 02, 1863

Co. F, 44TH New York Infantry

Pvt. Nash enlisted in August 1861. He was shot in the chest and killed on the second day of battle, first buried at Little Round Top and later reinterred in Gettysburg’s National Cemetery. The large “castle” monument which sits on the crest of Little Round Top is dedicated to his regiment.
