You’ve heard of “The Hills Have Eyes”? Well, the houses have eyes too . . . and a nose. This close-up of the Abraham Bryan farm is strangely attractive, though somewhat creepy at the same time. It looks as if someone kicked dirt against the bottom of the house . . . I hope that’s not the case. If you go up to the windows and peer inside, you can see period furniture (and wonder how in the world more than one person lived there without driving each other crazy).


 Born 1818 --- Died July 17, 1863 at age 45

He was wounded in the foot on the 2ND of July and died two weeks later. Gettysburg’s National Cemetery is his final resting place.
