Telling York County's Full Civil War Story... At Last

York County History Center and York Civil War Roundtable welcome James McClure!

When York County and America observed the Battle of Gettysburg centennial in 1963, York’s newspapers covered community observations in Wrightsville and Hanover. But there was scant coverage of York’s role a century before when the Confederates raided the county in the days before fighting at Gettysburg. Jim McClure traces the way York has discussed – or sat in silence- in regard to those days marked by York’s fathers’ surrender of the town to the Confederates. He follows the telling of York’s Civil War and related Underground Railroad story up to the current day, a moment marked by extensive and thoughtful research into those days when the Confederates marched across York County soil.

James McClure is a retired editor of the York Daily Record/ York Sunday News and USA Today Network’s state editor for Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
