While George Shriver served in the Union army, his wife, Hettie, was worried about the safety of their daughters, Mollie and Sadie, as well as their home. When soldiers filled the streets of Gettysburg, Hettie chose to take her children back to her family's farm three miles south of town, by Little Round Top. Hettie could not know she jumped from the frying pan into the fire. The Shrivers' vacant home offered the Rebels an outstanding view of Union ground and was quickly commandeered by Confederates to set up a sharpshooters' nest in the attic. 

Walk through the Shrivers' home to see life in the 1860s and watch as the Battle of Gettysburg unfolds.
