The cries of the wounded have no flags

The house is unique as its owner at the time of the Battle was a freed slave.The Brian farm (or Bryan),built in 1800,is located on the Gettysburg battlefield (Pennsylvania).It was the home to Abraham Brian,an African-American widower with five children who bought the farm in 1857 when he married his third wife,Elizabeth.The twelve acre farm grew wheat,barley and hay and had a small apple and peach orchard.The farmhouse was the headquarters of the Union.The house is reputed to be haunted. The Brian Farm featured prominently during the Battle of Gettysburg and was the scene of many, violent, gory, horrible, bloody deaths.Not coincidentally, it is also haunted.The Union: 3,155 killed, 14,531 wounded, 5,369 captured/missing – The Confederency: 4,708 killed, 12.693 wounded, 5,830 captured/missing.The photo was taken in 1866.When Brian returned to his home after the battle he found it nearly destroyed (reconstructed now).Brian filed claims for damages.He received $15 ( = $207 in the year 2010)
