|Thomas Child (left) at Gettysburg 50th with unidentified vet
In any event Diane knew all about Thomas and spent time in his former home and the best part is she had more photos! I am sharing them in this post. The very cool part is Thomas, who fought at Gettysburg with the 18th Mass. actually attended the 50th Gettysburg Reunion in 1913 the year before he passed away. And here pictured is the photo to prove it along with this train ticket from Massachusetts to attend the reunion. I did not know this but was informed that all veterans who wanted to attend were provided free train transportation.
