Confederate patrols reach the Perry County line, the northern limit of the Pennsylvania invasion

General Ewell's mounted infantry, patrolling out of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, reached Sterrett's Gap in Middlesex Township on the Cumberland-Perry County line. Stopping and resting before turning back at Joseph Miller's farm near the base of the gap, this twenty-man patrol reached the northern limit of the Confederate invasion of central Pennsylvania.  (By John Osborne)
