A Gettysburg Question from a Reader

August 5, 2013 at 8:55 am Leave a comment

I received an email over the weekend from a 1954 alumnus who apparently had read Lori Shontz’s Gettysburg story in our May-June issue. He asked an interesting question:

When I was an undergrad, we would drive out to Whipple Dam in hopes of meeting a coed at the beach. One day, we noticed a stone landmark at an intersection on the way to our swim spot. We got out and we read, I believe, that one or two Confederate soldiers who had run from the Gettysburg battle and made their way to this location, when they were shot dead by local farmers.  Do you know if the stone is still standing and if there is any more to the story?”

Has anyone else ever seen the marker this guy is referring to? Just curious.
