Jennie Wade Cellar

Soon after Jennie Wade was killed, her body was moved to the cellar and kept there for about 18 hours. Jennie Wade's body was placed onto a wooden bench and covered with a quilt. She was then buried in her sister's yard for about 6 months, then transferred to a cemetery adjoined to the German Reformed Church, until her final resting place in November 1865, in the Evergreen Cemetery.
