Eisenhower's Farmhouse and Barn


This picture taken from the Longstreet Tower located near Pitzer Woods on the Gettysburg National Military Park Battlefield. The Tower was built in 1895 and stands 76 feet above ground level.
Eisenhower bought the the run-down farmhouse in 1950 and after attaining the Presidency had it rebuilt for Mamie.
I do have to admit that DDE needs some kudos as he forced China in a cease-fire in the Korean War in the first year of his Presidency. He also balanced the budget three (3) of his eight (8) years while in office. Like that will ever happen again!
