‘Old Dorm,’ Gettysburg’s Schmucker Hall, at sunrise

Noel Kline arose early to get this photograph of Lutheran Theological Seminary’s Schmucker Hall at sunrise in May 2013. A month later, the scene was less tranquil as re-enacters were camping around that area as part of Gettysburg 150 observances. ‘Old Dorm,’ as it was called, was dedicated as a museum as part of that event.
