On Tuesday, July 3rd, the anniversary of Jennie Wade’s death, the tragic story of the only civilian to die during the battle of Gettysburg will be told by the “Ghosts” of those who were closest to Jennie in life and death.
Start your evening in the room where she met her fate as a confederate bullet accidentally ended her life. Hear the story of her death as told by the ghost of Jennie’s mother Mary who was an eye witness on July 3, 1863.
Journey through the structure following the route that the Union soldiers traversed as they escorted Jennie’s family to safety. The spirit of Captain Emil Koenig (58th NY Infantry) will escort you along as he remembers the desperate moments, the anxiety, the fear of death and the courage. All of these emotions were felt by soldiers and family alike that awful day.
Having survived the trip through the house, you will be escorted to the cellar where the confused ghost of Jennie’s Father, James awaits. There he will try to explain what he remembers about the family and the death of his daughter, but also the uncertain outcome of the battle outside. (Did you know that Jennie’s father went insane?)
As your visit draws to a conclusion, don’t be surprised if there isn’t one more ghost lurking in the shadows. Do you dare to be there to find out?

Voted as one of TripAdvisor’s top 10 things to do in Gettysburg while maintaining strong reviews at 4.5 out of 5 stars, the Shriver House Museum provides a unique perspective of the Battle of Gettysburg. If you’ve ever visited the battlefield, you’ve gotten a good perspective of what it might have been for soldiers during the battle; what about the civilians living nearby who were unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time?
The Shriver House Museum takes you back in time as you enter the fully restored 1860 home and enjoy guided tours that are conducted in period attire. Explore George, Hettie, Sadie, and Mollie Shriver’s home, which includes a Saloon & Ten-Pin Alley, hospital, and even an attic where two Confederate sharpshooters hid, eventually meeting their demise.
