The town of Gettysburg was also part of the battlefield.  Baltimore Street in particular became a very dangerous place to be with snipers shooting from second floor rooms.  Many of the buildings here still bear the scars of the battle.  Use the links below to learn more about the town and townspeople during the battle.
