These two distinguished gentlemen were both veterans of the Battle of Gettysberg. The man on the right is William Krieg, who immigrated from Germany as a child and owned a farm on Zurich Avenue. Mr. Krieg served in the Union Army for three years as a private. To the left is Captain Charles Saalman, who was wounded in his left arm at Gettysberg. This photo of the two comrades was taken on Captain Saalman's vineyard in Mullica Township.
