This is Sallie on the 11th PA monument and Bentley's hero. At the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1st, 1863 the men of the 11th Pa and their little mascot fought hard against the Confederate Army before retreating from their position. They discovered that their faithful friend was not to be found amongst them after relocating away from the heavy fighting . Days later, after the Confederate retreat, she was found laying amongst the fallen soldiers from the first day’s conflict, just barely alive herself she faithfully stayed behind and never left her comrades, even as the Confederate Army passed by. Sallie was a canine hero of the battle.
Please make a point of visiting Sallie on your next visit to Gettysburg.
This is our mascot at Gettysburg Publishing, Bentley. Bentley was a rescue, like his brother and two sisters that are now part of the owners family. Gettysburg Publishing and its authors are staunch supporter's of animal rescue, just like Bentley, we believe all animals should have a loving home.
Look for Bentley when we conduct our animal fundraisers with animal rescue groups.
Mary Virginia “Jennie” Wade. Jennie was the only Gettysburg civilian to be killed outright during the battle. In 21st Century wars, civilian deaths are very common, but during the Civil War, citizens were usually unscathed if they were able to stay out of harm’s way. However, on July 3 Jennie was kneading dough for biscuits at her sister’s home on Baltimore Street when she was killed instantly as a bullet passed through two wooden doors and struck her heart. That, unfortunately, is usually all visitors hear about this “Gettysburg Maid”—a mere sentence or two.
Now, with this book, Jennie Wade of Gettysburg: The Complete Story of the Only Civilian Killed during the Battle of Gettysburg, a visitor seeking more of her story may now be satis ed. The author has investigated as many sources as possible to write the full saga of Jennie’s life, death and all three burials.

The Coster Avenue Mural depicts the regiment in action on the battle’s First Day, at the very site on which it occurred. The book is seen through the artist eyes of the mural, Mark H. Dunkelman.
