Several civilians from York County, PA, who had ventured into Maryland watched the battle of Antietam and then rendered aid to wounded townsmen.
Some of Jeb Stuart’s Confederate cavalry camped on the John Mumper farm near Dillsburg PA concurrent with the 1st day of the battle of Gettysburg.
After the Civil War, PA residents could file border claims for the damages inflicted by the Confederate or Union soldiers, including stolen horses. More than 800 York Countians filed such claims. None received a dime from the commonwealth.
