The heaviest fighting of the Battle of Gettysburg took place around the buildings and across the fields and orchards of the Gettysburg battlefield farms. Trostle and Codori and Bliss are not just places on a map, but families whose lives changed when the Civil War’s bloodiest battle came into their homes. Many of these buildings can still be seen today, with a number restored to their 1863 appearance.
