The Civil War comes close to Lancaster

In an understated manner the minutes of the vestry alluded to the Battle of Gettysburg noting that ‘the regular meeting in July was omitted on account of the rebel army being in the State and threatening the County.” Yet some parishioners fought at Gettysburg and the Patriot Daughters of Lancaster, who had been organized by the Rev. Jacob Isidor Mombert in April 1861, nursed men wounded at that battle.
