The Reel Barn is just west of the battlefield and the barn suffered a direct hit from Union artillery, caught fire and burned. The barn was serving as a Confederate field hospital.
Another prominent family on the battlefield were the Roulettes who's farm was located on the north side of Bloody Lane. Thousands of Union soldiers marched on their farm as they moved south to attack the Confederate's in the road. After the battle 700 men were buried on their farm. It is difficult to make out in the photo, but just in front of the house are the tumbled Roulette family beehives. When the 132nd Pennsylvania Infantry marched past the house, an artillery shell knocked over the hives. The Pennsylvanians were swarmed by lead bullets and angry bees.
