Mary Virginia "Jennie" Wade was the only civilian to be killed during the Battle of Gettysburg. On the third day of fighting, a musket ball believed to be from Confederate sharpshooters came through the door of her house. Jenny was struck in the back and killed instantly. She was 20 years old and engaged to be married. Her story has inspired several writers throughout the years. This particular work is a well researched history of her life and story. John White Johnston was meticulous in his detail and presents her tragic story with high quality, rarely seen, images obtained directly from her family.
