Unbelievable find!

Today I came across these old pictures of Gettysburg. I believe these were created about two weeks before the battle.

As I am about 7 weeks into the modelling of the town of Gettysburg for our game soon, these will be very helpful.


Looking north with Taneytown Road in the foreground.
Southwestern corner of  Gettysburg

A view down one of the streets.

The eastern end of East Middle Street



The back of the shops along  York Street with the railway crossing on Carlisle Street in the foreground.


Still trying to confirm  the authenticity of these pictures.

  1. They look a tad like a diorama to me Rodger...But I could be wrong.

    My wife tells me I have been wrong on the odd occasion...

  9. Rodger the clever-one! Nice way to introduce us to your project. And a fine looking Gettysburg.

    Who took the pictures? A Rebel Recon Balloonist disguised as a flock of ravens?
