VETERANS POURING INTO GETTYSBURG

June 29, 1913 11:00 A.M.

Veterans by the thousands are arriving at the encampment grounds in preparations for the ceremonies that will commence on Tuesday, July 1st. Authorities originally estimated around 6,000 veterans would arrive two days prior to the official beginning of the Jubilee, but based on the pace of arrivals this morning the figure may grow to three times the original estimate. So far the arrivals are orderly, with Union and Confederate veterans showing no signs of animosity as they are shown the way towards the tent areas for their respective states.
