I looked at a list of Congressional Medal of Honor recipients from Gettysburg.  I saw that 6 were awarded to men who all took place in an action which I had not heard of before as part of the battle of Gettysburg.  They stormed a "loghouse" or "longhouse" near Devil's Den which was occupied by Confederate sharpshooters.  Has anyone else heard of this and why isn't this part of the battle tour/why haven't I seen this building near Devil's Den?  The list is part of Gettysburg National Park's website.
