Tribute to the fallen: See historic photos of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Address
»3 of 70 «
In July 1863, an unidentified Union soldier shown March 12, 1985, died in battle at Gettysburg clutching a photograph of his three children. All four went unidentified until November 1863, when a woman in Portsville, N.Y., saw the photos in a religious publication and identified them as her husband Sgt. Amos Humiston and their three children. In 1866, indirectly inspired by the incident, the Soldiers’ Orphans home was erected in Gettysburg, with Mrs. Humiston and her three children being part of its first 100 residents.
