    Carrie, Bill (maybe) and Edie at the famous battlefield. This same sign is still there, according to the website, remade of course (it would have been worn out by now if everyone treated it like this), but with the same wording. Picture about 1910. Edie went on to marry Albert Long, a member of the church of the Brethren ("Dunkard Church"), whose grandfather had been preaching on the site as the battle started (the meeting house then served as an infirmary for both sides).
