After many years as a battlefield guide and researcher at the Adams County Historical Society, Tim Smith has compiled a concise history of the building featured throughout the novel “Killer Angels” and movie “Gettysburg”. At one time owned by Thaddeus Stevens and known more popularly as the Thompson house, this was a significant feature on the first day’s battlefield. The book is a history of the house and land, the severe fighting that occurred around the house, Mary Thompson, her family and descendants, and the controversy surrounding the actual site of General Robert E. Lee’s headquarters.
