Friends and Generals: North/South reunion on Gettysburg’s East Cemetery Hill,1893

York, Pa.,’s David Spangler mailed this photograph, source unknown, of Union and Confederate generals who had gathered in Gettysburg 30 years after the great battle. It’s a little hard to sift the generals from their friends, but well-known generals E.P. Alexander, James Longstreet and Gen. Daniel E. Sickles are shown. Gen. O.O. Howard can be identified, his peg leg on the cannon.
