Emanuel Ziegler was a caretaker at the Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg during the Civil War. He and his family lived in the building that is presently the headquarters of the Adams County Historical Society. He and his family were there when the Union Cavalry occupied the area on June 30, 1863, and left when the Confederates occupied the Seminary grounds on July 1, 1863. Two of his children, Lydia Catherine (Ziegler) Clare and Hugh McClain Ziegler, have written stories about their experiences during the Battle of Gettysburg. These stories are available on genealogy and are worth reading. Emanuel is described as a steward of the Seminary and his wife Sara a matron in these stories.@S211@
