Sketch of Battle of Gettysburg, July 3, 1863 – Forbes
SKETCH OF THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG, FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 3d, 1863. (Reprint) Sketch by Edwin Forbes, found in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Famous Leaders and Battle Scenes of the Civil War, 1896. "In [this] illustration may be studied the struggle on Friday morning. On the Federal right the battle raged furiously from early dawn. Ewell was determined to advance from the rifle-pits he had taken the night before, and Slocum was equally resolute to recover them. Geary and Birney here met the first assault firmly. For six hours the struggle was desperate on both sides. The Confederates seemed to laugh at death, and again and again charged through the smoke of artillery with shouts that swelled above the uproar. Wheaton's Brigade, of the Sixth, was hurried up to the rescue, and the Federal line which had been forced back for a moment, again advanced; more troops were pushed forward, artillery brought up on a gallop, and posted so as to enfilade the hostile ranks. At eleven o'clock the enemy gave it up, and his shattered bleeding battalions fell back in despair." 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 on heavy 70# paper, suitable for framing

Four Wheels and a Vision: Butler’s Automotive Inventions, 1905-1941
Compiled and written by Carlene Bouwman, Pat Collins, and Patti Jo Lambert, 2011.
"As early as 1905, entrepreneurs in the City of Butler [Pennsylvania] were looking to the future. Long before it became fashionable to breeze around town in a new Chevrolet, these citizens took a chance and invested in a new industry--the manufacturing of automobiles.
This book covers 36 years of Butler's automotive golden age. During this time, Butler entrepreneurs manufactured six unique vehicles. They faced many challenges--including the Great Depression. One of the Butler-made vehicles--the Bantam Reconnaissance Car--became the most important American vehicle ever built"--the Jeep. (From Introduction.)
There is much more that could be written about this fascinating part of Butler's history. But this abbreviated compilation of facts and photos is an excellent introduction to the 70th anniversary of the Jeep.
