    Lot of Seven Photos of Lieutenant Percival Shaw and Family at Devils Den, Gettysburg, Shaw and family, 6 tintypes, 2.5" x 3" and a Carte de Visite of Shaw in uniform, 2 3/8" x 3 7/8", by R. W. Addis. A. Percival Shaw enlisted on February 16, 1862 at Brandford County, Pennsylvania as a first lieutenant. He was an officer in Company "F" 34th Pennsylvania Infantry. He was discharged April 30, 1864 due to disability. The Devil's Den is a rocky expanse of shrubs and scrub trees, the southernmost part of Houck's Ridge, directly west of Little Round Top across the Plum Run Valley, known to the soldiers as the "Valley of Death". The tintypes show some wear and one has considerable rippling. The CDV has thumb-tack holes along the edge and an applied label with Shaw's name, rank, and unit. An interesting group.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
