Jennie Wade Memorial
Jennie Wade is said to be the only civilian killed in the Battle of Gettysburg. 20 year old Jennie was making bread on the morning of July 3, 1863 when struck by a stray bullet. Her sister, Georgia Wade McClellan moved to Iowa after the War and led an effort to properly recognize Jennie.
