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.
