The McLean farm (sometimes spelled McClean) lies north of Gettysburg along Mummasburg Road at
the foot of Oak Hill. Moses McLean was a Gettysburg attorney who had served in the U.S. Congress
from 1843 until 1845. During the war he lived on Baltimore Street in town and rented the farm to
David H. Beams. David had been drafted in October of 1862 and was serving with the 165th
Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, a nine months regiment. The 165th was not at Gettysburg,
serving at the time of the battle in Dix’s Peninsula campaign in Virginia, and mustered out later in the
David’s wife Harriet and their three-year-old child were forced out of the house on July 1 as
Confederate Colonel O'Neal's Infantry Brigade moved across its fields under heavy fire from Union
1st and 11th Corps artillery. They returned to find their belongings stolen or destroyed.
