    The Gate House, home to Elizabeth Thorn, who was ordered by the cemetery association manager to bury the dead soldiers cluttering up his property. Her husband away at war, 6 months pregnant, this immigrant woman had no choice but to do so- with a shovel in hard-baked earth.105 graves. Hard to imagine this was someone's home, Elizabeth and Peter Thorn, 3 sons and a baby girl who did not live long.

I live in the South Carolina and last year when we went up to Gettysburg for Christmas, it started snowing on Christmas eave and after Christmas eave mass it was dark out and daddy took me, my mom and my sister for a drive through the beautifully decorated, snow covered neighborhoods and through down town Gettysburg. I was the most indescribable experience. I have never experienced Christmas like that before and I will NEVER, EVER forget it!
