Jennie (or Ginnie) Wade was kneading dough in her sister’s Gettysburg kitchen when a Minié ball, a bullet commonly used by the Union and Confederate armies, shot through the open door, passing through her shoulder, heart, and corset.
Wade, a twenty-year-old seamstress, was killed instantly, and became the Battle of Gettysburg’s first and only civilian casualty.
Wade’s fiancee, John Hastings Skelly, had been wounded two weeks earlier and died during the second week of July, never knowing his bride-to-be had already been claimed by the war.
On the 4th of July, Jennie’s mother baked fifteen loaves of bread with the dough Jennie had been kneading when she was shot.
