Red Patch at Gettysburg

Red Patch was a summer home built after the war by Union Brevet Major General Charles H. T. Collis. It is on West Confederate Avenue. (Tour map: West Confederate Avenue Pt. 1) The name “Red Patch” comes from the symbol of the First Division of the Union 3rd Army Corps in which Collis served, and the home has bedrooms named after Union generals.

The home today is a private residence.
