Taking Care of Business 7-01 Civil War Harrisburg

posted by Michael Parks - 

Over the 4th of July, many will remember and commemorate the Battle of Gettysburg in Gettysburg.  But did you know that "Harrisburg" was actually the main target of Confederate troops?

Local Civil War historian, Jim Schmick will provide us a wonderful entertaining history lesson of the skirmishes and battle that took place here in our area over the 4th holiday and how many of the locations in Harrisburg got their name.

Visit Jim's store Civil War & More at 10 S. Market St Mechanicsburg and visit their website.
