Confederate infantry occupy York, Pennsylvania

York, Pennsylvania, County Courthouse, 1852
06/28/1863 to 06/30/1863
Troops of General Early's division of the Confederate Second Corps of infantry reached York, Pennsylvania, some by way of East Berlin and some through Hanover.  Large numbers of troops camped at the Fair Grounds on the edge of the town and others gathered the large amount of supplies demanded from the population.  Many of the units left the town the next day and the remainder were gone by Tuesday, June 30, 1863.  (By John Osborne)
