Jennie Wade House

Mary Virginia Wade, better known as Jennie Wade, was the only civilian killed during the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania July 3, 1863 while baking bread for Union soldiers in the Jennie Wade House. She was struck by a single bullet that traveled through two wooden doors killing her instantly. Jennie Wade was 20 years old. The house looks very much the same as it did 150+ years ago. The house was actually the residence of Jennie's sister, Georgia McClellan.
