Jennie Wade - Gettysburg

The grave of Jennie Wade (top center), the only civilian killed during the battle of Gettysburg, rests in the Evergreen Cemetery on Cemetery Hill. Many Gettysburg notables are also buried in the cemetery that gave Cemetery Hill and Cemetery Ridge its names, including civilian-turned-combatant John Burns, battlefield photographer William Tipton and baseball Hall of Famer Eddie Plank.
