The George Rose Farm from the Peach Orchard and Wheatfield Road.
Slain Confederate Soldiers at Gettysburg, near Rose Farm were photographed by Alexander Gardner's team on July 5 or 6, 1863. Note the badly mauled body of a corpse in back. These pictures reflect the horror of hand to hand conflict that was common on this day.
One of these South Carolina Patriots could very well be my great great grandfather, 3rd Lieutenant Marion Richard Hinson. He was killed on this fateful charge. Lt George Caythen Brasingotn, my great grandfather's older brother, died in Yankee hands on 6 July, and was buried in a better marked grave. Made it easier to identify his body for return to South Carolina soil.
