Gettysburg – My Photos, Part 2

Two more from Gettysburg itself, and three more from the Catoctin Furnace.

The rail depot is now a little museum, with exhibits relating to Lincoln’s visit.

The iron master of Catoctin Furnace was responsible for all the finished product coming out of the factory. His house was quite large. Today it stands in ruins. The ‘root cellar’ image is my assumption of what the space might have been – it is not labeled on the site. I’m guessing at its function by the proximity to the house (it would have been immediately behind the house, near the kitchen). The other possibility is that it is the spring/well for the house. Since I lacked a flashlight, I did not go in to try and find out what was in there.
