General Meade's Headquarters at Gettysburg

George G. Meade selected widow Lydia A. Leister's farmhouse on the Taneytown Road, near National Cemetery, for his Gettysburg headquarters. When Mrs. Leister returned to her home, her livestock was gone, her crops trampled, her house shelled, and there were dead horses in her yard. The photo was taken after the area had been cleaned up, with only a few signs of the battle remaining.
