In York County, Pennsylvania, Hanover and Hanover Junction suffer a visit from Virginia cavalry

The 35th Battalion, Virginia Cavalry, colorfully known as "White's Comanches" for their distinctive war-cry and their young commander, Elijiah Veirs White, arrived in Hanover, Pennsylvania, and then moved on to Hanover Junction.  Brushing aside the raw Pennsylvania militia guarding the station in the early afternoon, White's men destroyed much of the important rail complex before moving on.  (By John Osborne)
