(9-06) Nathaniel Lightner Farm
 
The Union Sixth and Twelfth Corps used this farm as a hospital for several weeks after the battle. Near his father’s house on Baltimore Pike during action at the Witmer Farm Near Gettysburg, PA, Friday June 26th, 1863, Nathaniel Lightner of the 21st PA Cavalry and fellow Gettysburg native George Washington Sandoe sat on their cavalry mounts in the roadside. They were spotted by one of Colonel Elijah V. White’s 35th Virginia Cavalry patrols. Sandoe opened fire on the Rebels, but was killed in the ensuing brief exchange of small arms fire. Lightner spurred his horse away to safety
