Thanks, Fan. That's one of those oft told stories about Gettysburg that I've never heard the ending to, and always wondered about.

There are so many of those story snippets having to do with Gettysburg especially that, to me, help humanize the battle. When I visited the cupola in the Seminary about a year ago, I also got to spend time with Wayne Motts of the Adams County Historical Society. There are rooms and rooms of artifacts from and associated with the battle in Schmucker Hall, where the cupola is. Motts was more than willing to relate story after story about particular items in their collection, stories that I hadn't heard anywhere else. I have a particular interest and fondness for stories like Hummiston's. I'll have to check it out!
