The First to Fall at Gettysburg, the story of George Washtington Sandoe
as told by Elizabeth Thorn of Evergreen Cemetery to Sandoe's sister Elizabeth Cromer
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Living historian Ann Griffith will portray Elizabeth Thorn as she describes the horror of the Rebel Invasion on June 26 to the sister of the first soldier killed at Gettysburg. Thorn saw the Reb describe the death of the first soldier, George Washington Sandoe, a local boy who had just enlisted a few days earlier on June 23. She heard him brag about his death and the taking of his horse. A descendent of Sandoe, Debra Sandoe McCauslin will portray Elizabeth Sandoe Cromer as she speaks with Mrs. Thorn.
