With a battle looming and the countryside in turmoil, the Union cavalry rode into Gettysburg on the afternoon of June 30, 1863. The troopers dismounted and lounged in the town while awaiting further orders. During that time, the seven-year-old daughter of innkeeper Israel Yount, Emma, was playing outside their home when a cavalryman asked her to come and visit with him while he was resting. The cavalryman told her that he missed his young daughter at home and asked if little Emma would give him a hug to remind him of his daughter. Emma ran to ask her mother’s permission who considered it and gave her consent. Before leaving, the cavalryman gave young Emma a silk handkerchief he was carrying that featured George Washington’s image and patriotic border and flags. Emma kept that handkerchief until her death in 1946, and it was then donated to the Adams County Historical Society by her family. This reproduction was made by South Union Mills using measurements and photographs of the original at the historical society.
