I loved going through this home. You can feel the history! I noticed that on th email envelope, from Jennie's boyfriend, that he drew a tiny heart on the end of her name. I pointed it out to the guide. Apparently, I am the first to notice that! Yay me! I can't wait to take family to the tour! Thank you for a really interesting time.

Was great to learn of the history of the house and look in all of the rooms. Was next to the hotel that we were staying in.

Jennie was a truly amazing young lady that died for her country. Being told her story and seeing the room she died in and the facts surrounding her death will bring a tear to ones eye. She was truly and American Civil War Hero!

I have always wanted to visit the Jennie Wade House and finally got the opportunity to go there last month. The tour was very interesting and informative. Our tour guide Roger was wonderful. He was a great story-teller and answered all of our questions. The house looks much like it did when Jennie Wade was shot there and we learned so much from taking the tour. I would recommend this tour for anyone who visits Gettysburg.
