Hardcover, 118 pages
Tillie Pierce Alleman was fifteen years old at the time of the Battle of Gettysburg. Along with her neighbor, Hettie Shriver, Tillie spent three harrowing days of the battle in a house which sits at the base of the hills between Big Round Top and Little Round Top. Twenty-five years later she recounted her story in what was to become the most remarkable civilian account of the fighting.
