The Battle of Gettysburg involved the largest number of casualties of the entire Civil war and is often described as the war's turning point.

Name Meaning

English (southern): habitational name from places in Gloucestershire and Middlesex, so named from Old English strōd ‘marshy ground overgrown with brushwood’. Strood in Kent is named with the same word, and some examples of the surname are no doubt derived from this term in independent use.
