Mary Beatty (left) and Elizabeth Salome Myers
Mary Beatty of Harrisburg was active in the underground railroad. Elizabeth Salome Myers (called Sallie) was a 21 year old teacher in Gettysburg who
witnessed the fighting and although she "never could stand the sight of blood", found herself drawn into nursing the wounded and dying soldiers during
and after the battle.
