A Colt Army Revolver Left By Soldier On The Kitchen Table Of The Pfeffer Farm Battle Of Gettysburg



Civil War Colt Army revolver found on the kitchen table of the Pfeffer Farm after the battle of Gettysburg. The Pfeffers lived on a farm in Freedom Township near the Eisenhower Farm (Gettysburg) during the battle. They left the farm with their horses when the Confederate army invaded Gettysburg. When they returned they found their farm ransacked and nothing left except this pistol a Confederate soldier left behind on the table. The Pfeffers moved to Ziegler’s Grove, Gettysburg after the Civil War. This pistol has remained with the Pfeffers of Gettysburg since the battle. It is now owned by Erik Dorr the last descendant of Pfeffers of Gettysburg. Erik Dorr is the curator of The Gettysburg Museum of History.img_4543pfeffer-family
