Ask A Gettysburg Guide #23- Jennie Wade and Jack Skelly- with Author Cindy Small
Addressing Gettysburg Podcast
Jennie Wade was the only Gettysburg civilian to die during the battle of Gettysburg. The house she died in, "The Jennie Wade House" (actually the house her sister was residing in and not Jennie's) is a museum you can tour today. Matt, Bob, Tim Smith and special guest Cindy Small circled their chairs around the statue of Jennie outside the house and dug into the story of her family, what we know of her short life, her death and new details from recently uncovered letters that shed a brighter light on what the nature of Jennie's relationship to Jack Skelly may have been. Our Patrons know that something doesn't sit right with Matt regarding the circumstances surrounding her death. In this episode he tries to get to the bottom of it as well.
