Something else to make you long for spring in Gettysburg! I took this photo of redbuds at Little Round Top a few springs ago, and can’t wait to see them again. The 140TH New York Infantry monument is visible through the branches at bottom center-left. The skies aren’t very inviting, but they’re intriguing nonetheless . . . a hint of rain on the battlefield is always a treat for those who love ambiance, though perhaps not for those on Segways, bikes, motorcycles, or their own two feet.


Died July 14, 1863

Co. C, 150TH New York Infantry

Pvt. Wood enlisted in September 1862. He married Lydia and was widowed when she died in 1854. He had two daughters, Phoebe born 1840 and Maria born 1845. He was mortally wounded in the chest on July 3RD, supposedly by a sharpshooter, and died 11 days later. Pvt. Wood was buried at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
