Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide Stuart Dempsey is the host for our Eleventh Corps series. He is standing at the junction of Gettys Street (out of sight on the left) and South Washington Street (out of sight on the right). This was the site of the Dobbin Barn (owned by James Pierce in 1863). The buildings of Gettysburg Hospital are in the background. This view was taken facing northwest at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, October 29, 2010.

Video #96 was taken at the site of the Dobbin Barn. Video #97 was taken at the Barberhein House. Video #98 was taken near the Stock/Stuch House. This map was created facing north at approximately 9:00 AM on Saturday, February 5, 2011.

In Video #96 (Videos #1-#95 were shown in our previous Eleventh Corps posts) Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide Stuart Dempsey is standing at the site of the Dobbin Barn. He explains how member of the 55th Ohio used the barn to defend themselves from Confederates to the west and north. This view was taken facing northwest to west to north at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, October 29, 2010.

Licensed Battlefield Guide Stuart Dempsey is standing along South Washington Street at what was the Catharine Barbarhan or Catharine Barberhein House. This view was taken facing west at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, October 29, 2010.

In Video #97 Licensed Battlefield Guide Stuart Dempsey is standing by the Catharine Barberhein or Catharine Barbarhan House. He explains how members of the 55th Ohio forced Confederates from the structure on July 1, 1863. Stuart related to us that evidently the Barbehenn family did not own the house at the time of the battle. His esteemed colleague Woody Christ advised that his research indicates that Anna & Frederick Wisotzky purchased it in April 1863. It apparently did not come into the hands of the Barbehenn family until well after the battle. Thus it would be more appropriate to call it the “Wisotzky House”. This view was taken facing west to northwest at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, October 29, 2010.

Stuart Dempsey is standing by the Jacob Stuch or Jacob Stock House located along South Washington Street. See our previous post on the Stuch/Stock House. This view was taken facing northwest at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, October 29, 2010.

In Video #98 Stuart Dempsey standing near the Stuck/Stock House. He explains how Union artillery was brought near the intersection of the Taneytown-Emmitsburg Road to fire at Confederates in this area.
