Event Details

Discover the story of Union General Francis C. Barlow and his wife, Arabella, and Confederate General John B. Gordon and his wife, Fanny. Both wives followed their husbands from battlefield to battlefield and each nursed her spouse back to good health after life-threatening wounds.  At Gettysburg, Gordon saved Barlow's life, only to face him head-to-head combat ten months later at Spotsylvania.  After the war, the two warriors met at a dinner party and became fast friends for the rest of their lives.
