Adams County Historical Society Special Announcement – 11/3/2022

The Adams County Historical Society is excited to announce that renowned historian William A. Frassanito’s private collection of Gettysburg photos will be on display in our new museum, Gettysburg Beyond the Battle, when it opens in April 2023.
Frassanito’s private collection includes rare images of Gettysburg before and after the battle. The exhibit will include stereographic images of dead soldiers on the battlefield, a series of rare views captured at Devil’s Den in November 1863, one of the first outdoor photographs taken in the town of Gettysburg, and the only existing photographic print from the Gettysburg Address ceremonies.
The exhibit will also feature some of Frassanito’s most significant discoveries – the moving of a dead “sniper” at Devil’s Den, the location where bodies were photographed en masse at the George Rose Farm, and the elusive “Harvest of Death” photographic series. From photographers Alexander Gardner and Mathew Brady to the Tyson Brothers and William H. Tipton, Frassanito’s collection explores the people, places, and events that shaped the history of Gettysburg.
The exhibit will be featured in our Alexander Dobbin Special Exhibit Gallery.
