Excerpts from Inquirer Staff Reporter June 29, 1938
Phila veterans make valiant Gettysburg Unit.
June 29, 1938

Philadelphia came to Gettysburg today only six strong, but a more valiant six you never saw before in your life.

Samuel B. Hanson, 96 year old veteran “I went to war in a cattle car” he said as he stepped off of the train at 3 P.M. “and I wouldn’t mind riding in a cattle car again to come to Gettysburg. But it was no cattle car this time. No, sirree. Nothing was good enough but a special car. We sure could have used a special car in “63”.

It was the fifth time at Gettysburg for Hanson. He attended a G.A.R. national encampment here twice; visited the battlefield once; came to the 50th anniversary celebration of the big battle in 1913, and here he is again as chipper as ever.

June 29, 1938.

He is accompanied by one of his two daughters, Mrs. Sarah Shields. “She’s my bodyguard” he said “She is going to keep the girls away from me.” Hanson remembers that in 1913 the Philadelphia contingent of boys in blue numbered about 700. “We had a good time then, all right”, he said. “But you just watch me this time, provided I can get away from my bodyguard.”

Mrs. Shields who is used to that sort of talk, just smiled. “His legs aren’t any good,” she confided “He’s not going to do much running around.”

Later that day Samuel Hanson suggested a pinochle game, and they all gathered in his tent for an hour of social pastiming.

Hanson looked up from his dealing and gave a broad wink. “This reminds me of a meeting of Gen George Meade Post No. 2 G.A.R, Philadelphia.” He said

Others in the Philadelphia delegation were Samuel S, Fowler, 94 of 501 W. Hortter St., Germantown; William Ritter, 92 of 152 W. Queen La., Germantown; Allan T. McFarland, 92 of 2226 S. 67th St., Zachary T. Kirk, 90, of 1619 Fillmore St., Frankford, and James Burns, 92 of Upper Darby.

Fowler, quartermaster general of the Grand Army of the Republic. Arrived with his sergeant major’s sword, and his daughter, Mrs. Mae Carter.

The only two Philadelphia veterans who actually took part in the battle of Gettysburg had not yet arrived. They are William J. Baker, 90, of 22nd and Fitzwater sts., who was a drummer boy in the famous battle, and William Jackaway, 97, of 2621 N. Hutchinson St., who saw action against Pickett’s division in that Pickett’s charge that will be long remembered.

Jackaway is one of the very few survivors of that charge on either the Northern or Southern side who is still living. He was a member of the 72nd Pennsylvania Volunteers, a Philadelphia regiment, and was with the company which defended Cemetery Ridge on July 3, 1863. His name is carved on the monument marking the site of the Cemetery Ridge battle.

The other Philadelphians who have not arrived, although their tents have been assigned and are waiting, are Frederick J. McWade, 98, of Cottage and Decatur sts., Holmesburg, and John G. Tillett, 94, of 2513 S. 3rd St.
