Recollection of the Confederate Occupation of Carlisle, June 27-30, 1863

Benz House (formerly Farmers' Hotel), East High Street, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, circa 1873
This short and fanciful account of the Confederate occupation of Carlisle, in Cumberland County, during the Army of Northern Virginia's invasion of Pennsylvania was written by an unknown author using eye-witness testimony more than forty years after the event. It described very briefly the three day enemy visit, paying particular attention to the way in which many Confederates were revisiting some of their old haunts at the Cavalry School and Dickinson College. (By John Osborne)
