The Leister House / General Meade's Headquarters At Gettysburg

This is the Leister house which was General George Gordon Meade's Headquarters during the battle. It sat directly behind Cemetery Ridge and became one of the most dangerous spots on the battlefield. Confederate shells that were overshooting Cemetery Ridge because of the slow fuses were exploding all around the Leister house.
