The third Sherfy barn.

I recently found this interesting article in the Adams Sentinel. I along with many people thought the current Sherfy barn is the replacement for the barn burned during the battle. Not so as it turns out. The current barn is the third barn on the Sherfy property.
7-10-1866.

This fire occurred July 4, 1866. The barn in question was the replacement for the barn lost to fire during the 1863 battle.
