    WHAT A SHAME THIS MUSEUM WILL CLOSE. I was just now planning a trip to visit Gettysburg for the 1st time and with my children; I have family connections with the Battle of Gettysburg and I thought that this coming Spring would be ideal to visit. You have my sincere condolences! I wish here to contact you before it’s to late, hoping you can point me in the right direction with the following information:
    1. My grandmother’s grandfather was in combat at Gettysburg with Company F Wisconsin, 26th Infantry Regiment, in the Union Army. I wish to know more information abut their participation in the battle and if I can find photos, whether of the company or of individual combatants. Also, if I can find more about my greatgreat grandfather and where; Gotfried Arndt, thank Got survived!
    2) Is it possible to purchase items before the auction? I won’t be able to travel in November… Would you have a carbine, a musket or a Henry/ Winchester repeating riffle (which some solders would have used after purchasing them privately?) If so, can I purchase one? What would be the price? Which would be the opening bid if not?
