Located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania the Jennie Wade House is the site of the only civilian casualty of the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War. Jennie actually never lived in the house that would for 150 years bear her name, it was in fact her sister's house, which her, her mother, and brothers fled to as the Confederacy moved toward town.
The morning of July 3rd 1863, Jennie and her mother were making bread to bring to Union Soldiers. While in the kitchen, Confederate soldiers began firing on the North side of the house, which was hit by over 150 bullets. One such bullet, a Minié ball, passed through two doors and struck Jennie in the shoulder, penetrating her heart and finally coming to rest in her corset, ending her life at approximately 8:30AM. The house still has the bullet hole in the door and a red stain where Jennie fell.
Staff and visitors have seen Jennie walking about the house, most frequently in the kitchen. There have also been reports of soldiers in the home and on the grounds nearby. Jennie’s fiance Jack Skully died after being wounded in the war July 12th, never knowing of Jennie’s fate. Many say she is waiting for him to come home.

How to use
How to use
Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:
Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.
Never attempt to trim a burning candle.
Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.
The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.
Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.
Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:
Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
