Eyewitnesses to the Battle of Gettysburg
But after twelve years of researching the family, though there are still many unanswered questions, much has been learned about George and Hettie Shriver and their two children Sadie and Mollie.
To enter the Shrivers’ home today at 309 Baltimore Street in Gettysburg, is to step back in time. Those who walk through all four levels of the house - from cellar to attic and some seven rooms in-between - are able to visualize what life was like back in mid-1800, south-central Pennsylvania. So much more is now known than can be told during a thirty minute tour of their home. In response to numerous requests over the years for more information about the Shriver family, we are happy to announce the up-coming publication of The Shrivers’ Story: Eyewitnesses to the Battle of Gettysburg.
