Gettysburg's Civil War Tent Hospital
Did you know your innkeeper Debbie March is a direct descendant of the Wolf family that owned the farm where Camp Letterman Hospital was located after the Battle of Gettysburg? When the Federal Government set up a temporary hospital for the wounded from the battle, they selected the location of the Wolf farm on the York Pike. The farm had running water, shade trees, and most important, good access to major roads and the railroad. The tent hospital was supplied with surgeons, nurses, cooks, quartermaster, and supply clerk. The hospital was named after Dr. Jonathan Letterman who was the Medical Director for the Army of the Potomac.
