This is the saddest part of Gettysburg but it's also just factually interesting. Such a loss of a pretty young woman. It's a must see on your Gettysburg tour and it gives you a civilian perspective of the dangers of having a battle fought right outside your home.
We took this tour while visiting Gettysburg over the 4th of July weekend. Our tour guide was Starr and she was very well informed. She answered everyone's questions and gave a lot of information about Jennie Wade. Definitely worth seeing while in town.
On this tour you will learn the amazing story of the one civilian death during the three days of battle in Gettysburg. This is great for those who love human interests stories, but the amount of history you learn is great as well. The tour took a little less than an hour and is well worth the time.

George gave us a great presentation. He was well informed and able to answer any follow up questions that arose. Got a lot of information on a figure that I was not familiar with.
I have visited this house many times for a look back in time. I recommend seeing the Jennie Wade House in the day time to learn about the history, but come back at night on one of the ghost tours to really get a true experience.
