Growing up in Beechfield during the 1930s, James K. Lightner had an interest in photography and history. That interest led the 11-year-old Lightner and his parents to join the crowds that invaded Gettysburg during the first few days of July 1938. They went to honor the 2,000 Union and Confederate veterans — their average age was 94 — who traveled in 26 Pullman cars from nearly every state in the Union (only Rhode Island went unrepresented) to stand on hallowed ground one more time to mark the 75th anniversary of the historic battle.
