The Type of Shell That Knocked Out the Wall

The Type of Shell That Knocked Out the Wall
"This is the type shell that came through the roof & knocked out the wall you just came through."

A fake Civil War-era artillery shell lodged in the wall is intended to illustrate some of the damage that occurred at the Jennie Wade House Museum in 1863 during the Battle of Gettysburg in Gettysburg, Pa. Jennie Wade, the only civilian killed during the battle, was kneading dough on the first floor of this house when she was struck by a bullet.

To see the knocked-out "wall you just came through," mouse over the sign in the image above or see The Wall That Was Knocked Out by the Shell (thumbnail image below).
