It’s fascinating to note that every single one of Gettysburg’s “witness houses” tells a story. For instance, this brick home located at 238 Baltimore Street stood in this spot during the battle. It’s now the Forevermore Scrapbooks store. Like many old homes, it was modified over the years, but the majority of its design is true to its Gettysburg incarnation. If you’re ever walking the town, don’t forget to appreciate the many witness houses, and, if possible, to learn their histories. They can be quite interesting.

Pvt. Lister was a farmer by trade. He was wounded at Winchester, Virginia, and taken prisoner, later wounded at Chancellorsville in May 1863. He was killed at Gettysburg by a shot to the head and was buried at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
