Wood used by the National Park Service to build and maintain the fencing around the battlefield and farms of Gettysburg.
The John Slyder farm is located close to Devil's Den along Plum Run. Slyder, a Maryland native, had bought the 75 acre farm in 1849. On July 2nd 1863, Confederate General John B. Hood’s Division swept across Slyder’s farm in its advance toward the Devil’s Den and Little Round Top. The crops and orchards were trampled and destroyed and the farm buildings became a Confederate field hospital. Two months after the battle John sold the farm and moved the family to Ohio. The farm is said to be one of the more active with spirit activity for those drawn to that sort of thing.
