Welcome to our community, where each street is named for a Civil War general.
Lake Meade and the Road to Gettysburg July 1-3, 1863.
Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's armies faced Union Gen. George Meade's. This was the scene 150 years ago, long before the lake existed. On June 29, tens-of-thousands of southern troops were on the march nearby, expecting an epic engagement with the North close to Harrisburg. Among them were the forces of legendary Confederate General's JEB Stuart and Jubal Early. Their men and horses were thirsty, tired, hot and hungry. Many infantry were barefoot. They demanded food, water, horses, clothing and shoes from residents in this fertile and prosperous area. (Not everyone wanted to cooperate, including the owner of our neighboring 'Hidden Horse Farm'). Gen. Early's troops camped just to the south, near East Berlin. There they received orders to head towards Gettysburg. Northern forces also were moving to Gettysburg. Including small battles, skirmishes with the North, and scavenging, Lee's troops spent time in Hanover, Abbottstown, Hampton, Dover, Dillsburg, Heidlersburg and Carlisle ... the farthest north Confederate armies reached during the War Between the States.
