FOREWORD 



TIE war time history of our community was not made solely by the 
bravery, the sacrifices and the victories of its soldiers, sailors and marines. 
The activities of all the rest of its patriotic citizens, men, women, and 
children, played a vital part, whether their achievements were the result 
of individual effort, or of the co-ordinated work of such organizations as the American 
Red Cross, the War Camp Community Service, the Food Administration and others 
too numerous to mention, which surmounted every obstacle caused by the national 
emergency with a zeal and an unselfish devotion that made history for this old County 
of ours. 

In recording this history, it has Iieen the honest aim of the editors to produce 
accurate and complete records. The undertaking has been so immense, however, 
that it is inevitable that some mistakes and omissions have been made, due to such 
obstacles as the failure of the relatives of some of the boys who lost their lives to 
send in photographs to complete the honor roll. 

In the compilation of the necessary data, the editors have received much valu- 
able assistance. Especially should recognition here be given to Mr. Grier Hersh for 
his kind help and encouragement. Further, without the splendid co-operation of the 
relatives of the boys who made the supreme sacrifice, the completion of this work 
would not have been possible. 

It is earnestly hoped that there is given, in these pages, a general, correct and 
vivid picture of the wonderful and glorious sacrifices of the York County people. If, 
in addition, this history brings us to a realization of the sacrifices of our friends, 
especially those that gave their all, then the aim of this work may be said to have 
been accomplished. 

Clifford J. Hall.

SOMETIME WE'LL UNDERSTAND 



OT now, but in the coming years, 

It may be in the better land, 
We'll read the meaning of our tears, 

And there, sometime, we'll understand. 

We'll catch the broken thread again. 
And finish what we here began; 

Heav'n will the mysteries explain, 

And then, ah then, well understand. 

We'll know why clouds instead of sun 
Were over many a cherished plan: 

Why song has ceased when scarce begun: 
'T is there, sometime, we'll understand. 

Why what we longed for most of all. 
Eludes so oft our eager hand : 

Why hopes are crushed and castles fall, 
Up there, sometime, we'll understand. 

God knows the way. He holds the key. 
He guides us with unerring hand: 

Sometime with tearless eyes we'll see; 

Yes, there, up there, we'll understand.

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AT WAR. 




OT for aggrandizement, acquisition of territory, covetous- 
ness of any kind or vainglory: but at war in the cause of 
humane rights — tlie only cause that could stir this great, 

])owerful. [)eace-loving and law abiding country to the violence 

that war entailed. 

Our part of America is the giant among the nations of the world. 
It is a country of more than one hundred million people, with resources 
valued at more than two hundred and fifty billion dollars — figures 
that are by far too large for most of us to realize in their full signifi- 
cance. This was a vast force to inject into the terrible war that was 
convulsing the world, but powerful as it was, it could not have been 
given its full impetus without united action of the whole people. We 
— that is to say the bulk of the people — were slow to realize that a 
state of war existed. But not only did we make up our minds to 
the fact that the country was at war, but also to the fact that it 
needed our help. And we realized too, that the quicker we responded 
to the call and the more energy we put into oiu" efforts the more 
apt we were to shorten the period of strife and save suffering for 
friend and foe alike. 

There was work for every one. Even those who did and gave 
but little should be cheered because of the fact that even that little 
counted. What each could and should have done was outlined by 
President Wilson in his proclamation, dated April fifteenth, Nineteen 
hundred seventeen. The people of York County did their share.

PROCLAMATION 



Mv Fellow Counlrvmen: 




^^^^^^IIE entrance of our own beloved country into the grim and terrible war for democracy 

'^^ t^^ 'Tid human rights which has shaken the world creates so many problems of national life 

and action which call for immediate consideration and settlement that I hope you will 

[lermit me to address to you a few words of earnest counsel and appeal with regard to them. 

We are rapidly putting our navy upon an effective war footing and are about to create and equip 
a great army, but these are the simplest parts of the great task to which we have addressed ourselves. 

There is not a single selfish element, so far as I can see, in the cause we are fighting for. 

We are fighting for what we believe and wish to be the rights of mankind and for the future peace 
of the world. 

To do this great thing worthily and successfully we must devote ourselves to the service 
without regard to profit or material advantage and with an energy and intelligence that will rise to 
the level of the enterprise itself. 

We must realize to the full how great the task is and how many things, how many kinds and 
elements of capacity and service and self-sacrifice it involves. 

These, then, are the things we must do and do well, besides fighting — the things without which 
mere fighting would be fruitless: 

We must supply abundant food, for ourselves and for our armies and our seamen not only, but 
also for a large part of the nations with whom we have now made common cause, in whose support 
and by whose sides we shall be fighting. 

We must supply ships by the hundreds out of our shipyards to carry to the other side of the sea, 
submarines or no submarines, what will every day be needed there and abundant materials out of our 
fields and our mines and our factories with which not only to clothe and equip our own forces on land 
and sea but also to clothe and support our people for whom the gallant fellows under arms can no 
longer work, to help clothe and equip the armies with which we are co-operating in Europe, and to 
keep the looms and manufactories there in raw material: coal to keep the fires going in ships at sea 
and in the furnaces of hundreds of factories across the sea; steel out of which to make arms and am- 
munition both here and there: rails for wornout railways back of the fighting fronts: locomotives and 
rolhng stock to take the place of those every day going to pieces: mules, horses, cattle for labor and 
for military service: everything with which the people of England and France and Italy and Russia 
have usually supplied themselves but cannot now afford the men, the material or the machinery to 
make. 

Jt is evident to every thinking man that our industry and on the farms, in the shipyards, in themines, 
in the factories, must be made more prolific and more efficient than ever and that they must be more 
economically managed and better adapted to the particular requirements of our task than they have 
been: and what I want to say is that the men and the women who devote their thought and their 
energy to these things will be serving the country and conducting the fight for peace and freetlom just 
as truly and jiis( as rflVctively as the men on the battlefield or in the trenches. 



The industrial forces of the country, men and women ahke, will be a great national, a great inter- 
national Service Army — a notable and honored host engaged in the services of the Nation and the 
world, the efficient friends and saviors of free men everywhere. 

Thousands, nay hundreds of thousands of men otherwise liable to military service will of right 
and of necessity be excused from that service and assigned to the fundamental, sustaining work of the 
fields and factories and mines, and they will be as much part of the great patriotic forces of the Nation 
as the men under fire. 

I take the hberty, therefore, of addressing this word to the farmers of the country and to all who 
work on the farms: 

The supreme need of our own Nation and of the nations with which we are co-operating is an abund- 
ance of supplies, and especially of foodstuff's. The importance of an adequate food supply, especially 
for the present year, is superlative. 

Without abundant food, alike for the armies and the people now at war. the whole great enterprise 
upon which we have embarked will break down and fail. 

The world's food reserves are low. Not only during the present emergency, but for some time 
after peace shall have come, both our own people and a large proportion of the people of Europe 
must rely upon the harvests in America. 

Upon the farmers of this country, therefore, in large measure, rests the fate of the war and the fate 
of the nations. May the nation not count upon them to omit no step that will increase the produc- 
tion of their land or that will bring about the most effectual co-operation in the sale and distribution 
of their products? 

The time is short. It is of the greatest imperative importance that everything possible be done 
to make sure of large harvests. 

I call upon young men and old alike and upon the able-bodied boys of the land to accept and 
act upon this duty — to turn in hosts to the farms and make certain that no pains and no labor is 
lacking in this great matter. 

I particularly appeal to the farmers of the South to plant abundant food-stuffs as well as cotton. 
They can show their patriotism in no better or more convincing way than by resisting the great temp- 
tation of the present price of cotton and helping, helping upon a great scale to feed the Nation and 
the people everywhere who are fighting for their liberties and for our own. The variety of their crops 
will be the visible measure of their comprehension of their national duty. 

The Government of the United States and the governments of the several States stand ready to 
co-operate. They will do everything possible to assist farmers in securing an adequate supply of 
seed, an adequate force of laborers when they are most needed, at harvest time, and the means of 
expediting shipments of fertilizers and farm machinery, as well as of the crops themselves when 
harvested. 

The course of trade shall be as unhampered as it is possible to make it and there shall be no un- 
warranted manipulation of the Nation's food supply by those who handle it on its way to the consumer. 
This is our opportunity to demonstrate the efficiency of a great democracy and we shall not fall short 
of it! 

This let me say to the middlemen of every sort, whether they are handling our foodstuffs or our 
raw materials of manufacture or the products of our mills and factories: 

The eyes of the country will be especially upon you. This is your opportunity for signal service, 
efficient and disinterested. 

[9] 



The country expects you, as it expects all others, to f(jrego unusual profits, to organize and expedite 
shipments of supplies of every kind, but especially of food, with an eye to the service you are rendering; 
and in the spirit of those who enUst in the ranks, for their people, not for themselves, I shall confidently 
expect you to deserve and win the confidence of people of every sort and station. 

To the men who run the railways of the country, whether they b? managers or operative employes, 
let me say that the railways are the arteries of the Nation's life and that upon them rests the immense 
responsibility of seeing to it that those arteries suffer no obstruction of any kind, no inefficiency or 
slackened power. 

To the merchant let me suggest the motto: " Small profits and quick service:" and to the ship- 
builder the thought that the life of the war depends upon him. The food and the war supplies must 
be carried across the seas no matter how many ships are sent to the bottom. The places of those 
that go down must be supplied and supplied at once. To the miner let me say that he stands where 
the farmer does: The work of the world waits on him. If he slackens or fails, armies and statesmen 
are helpless. He also is enlisted in the great Service Army. The manufacturer does not need to be 
told, I hope, that the Nation looks to him to speed and perfect every process; and I want only to 
remind his employes that their service is absolutely indispensable and is counted on by every man 
who loves the country and its liberties. 

Let me suggest also that every one who creates or cultivates a garden helps and helps greatly to 
solve the problem of the feeding of the nations: and that every- housewife who practices strict economy 
puts herself in the ranks of those who serve the Nation. 

This is the time for America to correct her unpardonable fault of wastefulness and extravagance. 
Let every man and every woman assume the duty of careful, provident use and expenditure as a public 
duty, as a dictate of patriotism which no one can now ex-pect ever to be excused or forgiven for ignoring. 

In the hope that this statement of the needs of the Nation and of the world in this hour of supreme 
crisis may stimulate those to whom it comes and remind all who need reminding of the solemn duties 
of a time such as the world has never seen before, I beg that all editors and publishers everywhere 
will give as prominent publication and as wide circulation as possible to this appeal. I venture to 
suggest also to advertising agencies that they would perhaps render a very substantial and timely 
service to the country if they would give it widespread repetition. And I hope that clergymen will 
not think the theme of it an unworthy or inappropriate subject of comment and homily from their 
pulpits. 

The supreme test of the Nation has come. We must all speak, act and serve together.

WHY WAR WAS DECLARP^D. 



At a joint meeting of tlie two liouses of Congress assembled 
in extraordinary session, April 2, 1917, President Wilson 
delivered the following address which was the basis of the 
subsequent action of Congress in its declaration that a state 
of war existed with Germany. 



Genllenieji of the Confjress: 




HAVE called the Congress into extraordinary session because there are serious, very 
serious, choices of policy to be made, and made immediately, which it was neither right 
nor constitutionally permissible that I should assume the responsibility of making. 

On the third of February last I officially laid before you the extraordinary announcement 
(if the Intperial German (Jovernment that on and after the first day of F'ebruary it was its purpose 
to put aside all restraints of law or of humanity and use its submarines to sink every vessel that sought 
to approach either the ports of Great Britain and heland or the western coasts of Europe or any of 
the ports controlled by the enemies of Germany within the Mediterranean. 

That had seemed to be the object of the German submarine warfare earlier in the war, but since 
April of last year the Imperial Government had somewhat restrained the commanders of its undersea 
craft in conformity with its promise then given to us that passenger boats should not be sunk and 
that due warning would be given to all other vessels which its submarines might seek to destroy when 
no resistance was offered or escape attempted, and care taken that their crews were given at least a 
fair chance to save their fives in their open boats. 

The precautions taken were meager and haphazard enough, as was proved in distressing instance 
after instance in the progress of the cruel and unmanly business; but a certain degree of restraint 
was observed. 

The new policy has swept every restriction aside. Vessels of every kind, whatever their flag, 
their character, their cargo, their destination, their errand, have been ruthlessly sent to the bottom 
without warning and without thought of help or mercy for those on board, the vessels of friendly 
neutrals along with those of belligerents. 

Even hospital ships and ships carrying relief to the sorely bereaved and stricken people of Belgium, 
though the latter were provided with safe conduct through the proscribed areas by the German Govern- 
ment itself and were distinguished by unmistakable marks of idenity, have been sunk with the same 
reckless lack of compassion or of principle. 

I was for a fittle while unable to believe that such things would in fact be done by any Government 
that had hitherto subscribed to the humane practices of civilized nations. International law had its 
origin in the attempt to set up some law which would be respected and observed upon the seas, where 
no nation had right of domination and where lay the free highways of the world. 

By painful stage after stage has that law been built up, with meager enough results, indeed, after 
all was accomplished that could be accomplished, but always with a clear view, at least, of what the 
heart and conscience of mankind demanded. 

This minimum of right the German Government has swept aside under the plea of retaliation 
and necessity and because it had no weapons which it could use at sea except those which it is impossible 

f 11] 



to employ as it is employing them without throwing to the winds all scruples of humanity or of respect 
for the understandings that were supposed to underlie the intercourse of the world. 

I am not now thinking of the loss of property involved, immense and serious as that is, but only 
of the wanton and wholesale destruction of the lives of noncombatants, men. women and children, 
engaged in pursuits which have always, even in the darkest periods of modern history, been deemed 
innocent and legitimate. Property can be paid for; the lives of peaceful and innocent people cannot be. 

The present German submarine warfare against commerce is a warfare against mankind. It is a 
war against all nations. American ships have been sunk. American lives taken, in ways which it has 
stirred us very deeply to learn of. but the ships and people of other neutral and friendly nations have 
been sunk and overwhelmed in the waters in the same way. There has been no discrimination. The 
challenge is to all mankind. Each nation must decide for itself how it will meet it. 

The choice we make for ourselves must be made with a moderation of counsel and a temperateness 
of judgment befitting our character and our motives as a nation. We must put excited feeling away. 
Our motive will not be revenge or the victorious assertion of the physical might of the nation, but 
only the vindication of right, of human right, of which we are a single champion. 

When I addressed the Congress on the twenty-sixth of February last I thought it would suffice to 
assert our neutral rights with arms, our right to use the seas against unlawful interference, our right to 
keep our people safe against unlawful violence. But armed neutrality, it now appears, is impracticable. 

Because submarines are in effect outlaws when used as the German submarines have been used 
against merchant shipping, it is impossible to defend ships against their attacks, as the law of nations 
has assumed that merchantmen would defend themselves against privateers or cruisers, visible craft 
giving chase upon the open sea . It is common prudence in such circumstances, grim necessity, indeed, 
to endeavor to destroy them before they have shown their own intention. They must be dealt with 
upon sight, if dealt with at all. 

The German Government denies the right of neutrals to use arms at all within the areas of the sea 
which it has prescribed, even in the defense of rights which no modern publicist has ever questioned 
their right to defend. The intimation is conveyed that the armed guards which we have placed on 
our merchant ships will be treated as beyond the pale of law and subject to be dealt with as pirates 
would be. 

Armed neutrality is ineffectual enough at best; in such circumstances and in the face of such pre- 
tensions it is worse than ineffectual; it is likely only to produce what it was meant to prevent; it is 
virtually certain to draw us into the war without either the rights or the effectiveness of belligerents. 

There is one choice we cannot make, we are incapable of making: we will not choose the path of 
submission and suffer the most sacred rights of our nation and our people to be ignored or violated. 
The wrongs against which we now array ourselves are not common wrongs ; they cut to the very roots 
of human life. 

With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of 
the grave responsibilities which it involves, but in unhesitating obedience to what I deem my con- 
stitutional duty, I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German Govern- 
ment to be in fact nothing less than war against the Government and people of the I nited States; 
that it formally accept the status of belligerent which has thus been thrust upon it, and that it take 
immediately steps not only to put the country in a more thorough state of defense, but also to exert 
all its p(jwer and employ all its resources to bring the Government of the German Empire to terms 
and end the war. 

What this will involve is clear. It will involve the utmost practicable co-operation in counsel and 

[12] 



action with the Governments now at war with Germany, and. as incident to that, the extension to those 
(^.ovcrnments of the most Hberal financial credits, in order that our resources may. so far as possible, 
be added to theirs. It will involve the organization and mobilization of all the material resources of 
the country to supply the material of war and serve the incidental needs of the nation in the most 
abundant and yet the most economical and efficient way possible. 

It will involve the immediate full equipment of the navy in all respects, but particularly in supply- 
ing it with the best means of dealing with the enemy's submarines. It will involve the immediate 
addition to the armed forces of the United States already provided for by law in case of war, at 
least 500.000 men, who .should, in my opinion, be chosen upon the principle of universal liability to 
service, and also the authorization of subsequent additional increments of equal force so soon as they 
may be needed and can be handled in training. 

It will involve also, of course, the granting of adequate credits to the Government, sustained, I 
hope, so far as they can equitably be sustained by the present generation, by well-conceived taxation. 
I say sustained so far as may be equitably by taxation because it seems to me that it would be most 
unwise to base the credits which will now be necessary entirely on money borrowed. It is our duty, 
I most respectfully urge, to protect our people so far as we may against the very serious hardships 
and evils which would be likely to arise out of the inflation which would be produced by vast loans. 

In carrying out the measures by w-hich these things are to be accomphshed we should keep con- 
stantly in mind the wisdom of interfering as little as possible in our own preparation and in the equip- 
ment of our own military forces with the duty — for it will be a very practical duty — of supplying the 
nations already at war with Germany with the materials which they can obtain only from us by our 
assistance. They are in the field and we should help them in every way to be effective there. 

I shall take the liberty of suggesting, through the several executive departments of the Government, 
for the consideration of your committees, measures for the accomplishment of the several objects I 
have mentioned. I hope that it will be your pleasure to deal with them as having been framed after 
very careful thought by the branch of the Government upon which the responsibility of conducting 
the war and safeguarding the nation will most directly fall. 

While we do these things — these deeply momentous things — let us be very clear, and make very 
clear to all the world, what our motives and our objects are. My own thought has not been driven 
from its habitual and normal course by the unhappy events of the last two months, and I do not believe 
that the thought of the nation has been altered or clouded by them. 

I have exactly the same things in mind now that I had in mind when I addressed the Senate on 
the twenty-second of January last; the same that I had in mind when I addressed the Congress on 
the third of February and on the twenty-sixth of February. Our object now, as then, is to vindicate 
the principles of peace and justice in the life of the world against selfish and autocratic power and to 
set up among the really free and self-governed peoples of the world such a concert of purpose and action 
as will henceforth insure the observance of those principles. 

Neutrality is no longer feasible or desirable where the peace of the world is involved and the freedom 
of its people, and the menace to that peace and freedom lies in the existence of autrocratic governments 
backed by organized force which is controlled wholly by their will, not by the will of their people. 
We have seen the last of neutrality in such circumstances. 

We are at the beginning of an age in which it will be insisted that the same standards of conduct 
and of responsibility for wrong-doing shall be observed among nations and their Governments that are 
observed among the individual citizens of civilized States. 

fl3 1 



We have no quarrel with the (ierman people. We have no feeling toward them but one of sympathy 
and friendship. It was not upon their impulse that their Government acted in entering this war. 
It was not with their previous knowledge or approval. 

It was a war determined upon as wars used to be determined upon in the old, unhappy days when 
peoples were nowhere consulted by their rulers and wars were provoked and waged in the interest of 
dynasties or of little groups of ambitious men who were accustomed to use their feUow-men as pawns 
and tools. 

Self-governed nations do not fill their neighbor States with spies, or set the course of intrigue to 
bring about some critical posture of affairs which will give them an opportunity to strike and make 
conquest. Such designs can be successfully worked out only under cover and where no one has the 
right to ask questions. 

Cunningly contrived plans of deception or aggression carried, it may be, from generation to gene- 
ration can be worked out and kept from the light only within the privacy of courts or behind the 
carefully guarded confidence of a narrow, privileged class. They are happily impossible where public 
opinion commands and insists upon full information concerning all the nation's affairs. 

A steadfast concert for peace can never be maintained except by a partnership of democratic nations. 
No autocratic Government could be trusted to keep faith within it or observe its covenants. It 
must be a league of honor, a partnership of opinion. Intrigue would eat its vitals away: the plotting 
of inner circles who could plan what they would and render account to no one would be a corruption 
seated at its very heart. Only free peoples can hold their purpose and their honor steady to a common 
end and prefer the interests of mankind to any narrow interest of their own. 

Does not every American feel that assurance has been added to our hope for the future peace of 
the world by the wonderful and heartening things that have been happening within the last few weeks 
in Russia? Russia was known by those who know it best to have been always in fact democratic 
at heart in all the vital habits of her thought, in all the intimate relationships of her people that spoke 
their natural instinct, their habitual attitude toward life. 

The autocracy that crowned the summit of her political structure, long as it had stood and terrible 
as was the reaUty of its power, was not, in fact, Russia in origin, character or purpose; and now it 
has been shaken off and the great, generous Russian people have been added in all their native majesty 
and might to the forces that are fighting for freedom in the world, for justice and for peace. Here is 
a fit partner for a league of honor. 

One of the things that have served to convince us that the Prussian autocracy was not and could 
never be our friend is that from the very outset of the present war it has filled our unsuspecting com- 
munities and even our offices of Government with spies and set criminal intrigues everywhere afoot 
against our national unity and counsel, our peace within and without, our industries and our commerce. 

Indeed, it is now evident that its spies were here even before the war began ; and it is unhappily 
not a matter of conjecture, but a fact proved in our courts of justice, that the intrigues which have 
more than once come perilously near to disturbing the peace and dislocating the industries of the 
country have been carried on at the instigation, with the support, and even under the personal direction 
of official agents of the Imperial Government accredited to the Government of the United States. 

Even in checking these things and trying to extirpate them, we have sought to put the most generous 
interpretation possible upon them because we know that their source lay. not in any hostile feeling 
or purpose of the German people toward us (who were, no doubt, as ignorant of them as we ourselves 
were), but only in the selfish designs of a Government that did what it pleased and told its people 
nothing. But they have played their part in serving to convince us at least that that Government 

f 14] 



entertains no real friendship for us and means to act against our peace and security at its convenience. 
That it means to stir up enemies against us at our very doors the intercepted note to the German 
Minister at Mexico City is eloquent evidence. 

We are accepting this challenge of hostile purpose because we know that in such a Government, 
following such methods, we can never have a friend; and that in the presence of its organized power, 
always lying in wait to accomplish we know not what purpose, there can be no assured security of 
the democratic Governments of the world. 

We are now about to accept gage of battle with this natural foe to liberty, and shall, if necessary, 
spend the whole force of the nation to check and nullify its pretensions and its power. We are glad, 
now that we see the facts with no veil of false pretense about them, to fight thus for the ultimate peace 
of the world and for the liberation of its peoples, the German peoples included ; for the rights of nations 
great and small and the privilege of men everywhere to choose their way of life and of obedience. The 
world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of 
political Uberty. 

We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities 
for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the 
champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been as secure as 
the freedom of the nations can make them. 

Just because we fight without rancor and without selfish object, seeking nothing for ourselves but 
what we shall wish to share with all free people, we shall, I feel confident, conduct our operations as 
belligerents without passion and ourselves observe with proud punctilio the principles of right and of 
fair play we profess to be fighting for. 

I have said nothing of the Governments allied with the Imperial Government of Germany because 
they have not made war upon us or challenged us to defend our right and our honor. TheAustro- 
Hungarian Government has, indeed, avowed its unqualified indorsement and acceptance of the reckless 
and lawless submarine warfare adopted now without disguise by the Imperial German Government, 
and it has, therefore, not been possible for this Government to receive Count Tarnowski, the Am- 
bassador recently accredited to this Government by the Imperial and Royal Government of Austria- 
Hungary; but that Government has not actually engaged in warfare against citizens of the United 
States on the seas, and I take the liberty, for the present at least, of postponing a discussion of our 
relations with the authorities at Vienna. We enter this war only where we are clearly forced into it 
because there are no other means of defending our rights. 

It will be all the easier for us to conduct ourselves as belligerents in a high spirit of right and fairness 
because we act without animus, not in enmity toward a people or with the desire to bring any injury 
or disadvantage upon them, but only in armed opposition to an irresponsible Government which has 
thrown aside all considerations of humanity and of right and is running amuck. 

We are, let me say again, the sincere friends of the German people, and shall desire nothing so much 
as the early re-establishment of intimate relations of mutual advantage between us, however hard it 
may be for them, for the time being, to befieve that this is spoken from our hearts. 

We have borne with their present Government through all these bitter months because of that 
friendship, exercising a patience and forbearance which would otherwise have been impossible. We 
shall, happily, still have an opportunity to prove that friendship in our daily attitude and action 
toward the millions of men and women of German birth and native sympathy who live among us and 
share our life, and we shall be proud to prove it toward all who are in fact loyal to their neighbors and 
to the Government in the hour of test. 

[15] 



They are, most of them, as true and loyal Americans as if they had never known any other fealty 
or allegiance. They will be prompt to stand with us in rebuking and restraining the few who may be 
of a different mind and purpose. 

If there should be disloyalty it will be dealt with with a firm hand of stern repression; but if it lifts 
its head at all it will lift it only here and there, and without countenance except from a lawless and 
malignant few. 

It is a distressing and oppressive duty, gentlemen of the Congress, which I have before me in thus 
addressing you. There are, it may be, many months of fiery trial and sacrifice ahead of us. It is a 
fearful thing to lead this great, peaceful people into war — into the most terrible and disastrous of all 
wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. 

But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always 
carried nearest our hearts — for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a 
voice in their own government, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal dominion of 
right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world 
itself at last free. 

To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything 
that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to 
spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace which 
she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other.

TWO OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL POEMS OF THE WAR 



IN FLANDERS FIELDS 

By LIEUTENANT-COLONEL JOHN MeCREA 

(Died on the Field of Honor) 



IN Flanders fields the poppies grow 
Between the crosses, row on row. 
That mark our place; and in the sky 
The larks, still bravely singing, fly. 
Scarce heard amid the guns below. 



We are the dead. Short days ago 
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow. 
Loved and were loved : and now we lie 
In Flanders fields. 



Take up our quarrel with the foe ! 
To you from falling hands, we throw 
The torch. Be yours to hold it high! 
If ye break faith with us who die 
We shall not sleep, though poppies blow 
In Flanders fields. 



FROM OTHER FIELDS 

A Reply to " In Flanders Fields " 
Bv JOHN MITCHELL 



O SLEEP in peace where poppies grow. 
The torch your falling hands let go 
Was caught by us; again held high. 
A beacon light in Flanders' sky. 
That dims the stars to those below. 
You are our dead. You held the foe. 
And ere the poppies cease to blow 
We'll prove our faith in you who lie 
In Flanders' fields. 

rest in peace, we quickly go 
To you who bravely died, and know 
In other fields was heard the cry. 
For freedom's cause, of you who lie 
So still, asleep, where poppies grow. 
In Flanders' fields. 



As in rumbling sound, to and fro 
The lightning flashes ; sky aglow ; 
So mighty hosts appear. And high 
Above the din of battle cry, 
"Scarce heard amid the guns below," 
Are fearless hearts who fight the foe 
And guard the place where poppies grow. 
sleep in peace all you who lie 
In Handers' fields. 

And still the poppies gently blow 
"Between the crosses, row on row." 
The larks still bravely soaring high. 
Are singing now their lullaby 
To you who sleep where the poppies grow 
In Flanders' fields.

MISS JEANNETTE ZINN 



MISS Jeannette Zinn, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilham Zinn of 452 West College Ave., 
York, Pa., was the first woman from this city to give her life for the great cause of freedom. 
She was graduated with honors from the York High School in the class of 1910, being the 
valedictorian of her class and the class poet. IVIiss Zinn was also well known in amateur theatrical 
work, having taken part in several benefit plays given by the Girls" Club. 

From the very beginning of the war. Miss Zinn was an enthusiastic war worker. She was cap- 
tain of the winning team of the War Thrift Stamp contest, and active in the Girls' Club of York. 
Later, desiring to enter a larger field, she enlisted in the Business Women's Unit of the Y. M. C. A., 
and, after about a week in New York, she sailed for England, enroute to the Paris headquarters 
of the Y. M. C. A., where she was to have filled an executive position. 

Miss Zinn died in a hospital in Liverpool, England, a victim of pneumonia. She made the supreme 
sacrifice as did so many of our brave comrades. The memory of her actions and the record of her 
work will always be remembered by the people of York. C. H. Bear & Co., her former employers, 
furnished a room in her memorv in the Girls' Club of York.

AMBULANCE DRIVER, JAMES WILSON GAILEY 

Croix de Guerre 



AMBULANCE Driver James Wilson Gailey, the son of Mr. and Mrs J. A. Gailey of New Park,

Seminary at Pennsburg, Va., where he graduated in 1913, and entered Princeton University 
at Princeton, N. J., in the class of 1917. 

Immediately upon graduation from college, Gailey enlisted in the American Ambulance Corps, 
and was soon in active service in France. His bravery and devotion to duty were so conspicuous 
that he was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French Government. 

On the night of July 28, 1917, Ambulance Driver Gailey, together with his regular driving partner, 
was bringing wounded back from the firing line. It was during a terrific bombardment, and he had 
been driving his ambulance all night in heroic relief work. He had just loaded his car with wounded 
when a German shell exploded near, and killed his companion outright. Gailey himself sustained 
wounds from which he died a few minutes later. He and his companion, T. R. Hamilton of Clinton. 
Mass., were buried at Meyer, France, near the spot where they fell. 



[25] 




CORPORAL JOHN ALBERT DOLL 

Croix de Guerre 



CORPORAL John Albert Doll, son of Mrs. Lizzie Doll of 224 S. Newberry St., York, Pa., was 
employed in this city as a laborer before entering the service. He was one of the honor men 
of the American Expeditionary Force, having won official citations and a Croix de Guerre for 
his conspicuous heroism on several different occasions, while on active duty in the front lines. 

Corporal Doll was wounded at the beginning of an attack, but showed the greatest courage and 
skill in assembHng his scjuad and leading them in the assault, despite his several wounds. He charged 
with his men until he was exhausted from loss of blood, and was obliged to stop, but not until his 
example had so inspired his men that they ultimately reached their objective. He died on October 
.31, 1918, at Olsens, Relgium, as a result of the wounds received in this battle. 

French Citation Certificates, setting forth the bravery and skill with which this young soldier 
conducted himself while under fire, and his Croix de Guerre, have been received by his mother. 

York people may well be proud of the splendid war record of Corporal Doll. "HE DIED TO 
MAKE MEN FREE."

Arizona. He was then sent to Camp Merritt, N. J., and left Camp Merritt in April, 1918, for overseas

LETTERS AND EXPERIENCES OF BOYS IN THE SERVICE 

LAST LETTER FROM JAMES WILSON GAILEY TO HIS PARENTS 

"At the Front," Friday, July 11, 1917. 
My Dear Folks at Home: 

You will forgive one and a half weeks' silence when you have read this letter, I am sure. 
Believe me, I have been moving around since I wrote you last, and also I have seen many wonderful 
sights. 

I wrote you a letter while I was at the mill quarters. You know, we could hear the guns there; but 
now I am with the guns. But more about that later. 

After we left the mill quarters, we moved on to an auto park, where we received our French am- 
bulances. After we had remained there about one week and had grown accustomed to our machines, 
we moved on for a few days' stay at another place nearer the front, and from thence we came to our 
present position on the front. 

I am now really and truly in the war. All the realities of a tenible warfare have been opened before 
my eyes. 

To think that I am now in the very midst of this greatest war in history is something that my mind 
is hardly able to grasp. 

For three years I have read about it in a careless, rather unsympathetic manner. Every day at 
home I read about the terrible casualties, but my heart never beat any faster for all that: but now I am 
interested heart and soul. 

I have seen what France has sacrificed. Everywhere out here you see immense military cemeteries, 
where men are actually dumped into the ground, and as you look over what seems like measureless 
acres of rude crosses, each one bearing this inscription, "Mort pour le France" (Died for France), 
you go home with a heavy heart. 

I wish I could tell you where I am and through what places I traveled to get here, but I can't. 
Nevertheless I will say that I am three-quarters of a mile from the French first line trenches somewhere 
in France. 

Now three-quarters of a mile is not very far, you know; the artillery these days is very heavy; so 
we are situated in front of all the French guns. 

Some of the heavy French guns are several miles behind us and from that distance guns are placed 
nearer and nearer the lines as they grow smaller in size, you understand. Now these guns shoot over 
the heads of their own men in the trenches into the German trenches beyond; and, of course, they are 
continually shooting over our heads, because we are only a little distance behind the trenches. 

I am writing this letter from a "Poste de Secours". Now tliis Poste de Secours is a cave deep 
underground, because the Germans have a nasty habit of shelHng this place continually. 

You see the Germans not only shell the French infantry, which is in front of us. but the French 
artillery, which is behind us. So we eat, write and read to the tune of flying shells. 

I have grown accustomed to the sound of the French shells flying over our heads. They are, of 
course, not meant for us, but nevertheless at first they are rather disturbing. They make a swishing 
sound, like a bucket when you swing it around your head as fast as you can. You can hear them coming 
a long way off. 

There is a battery of heavy guns not a hundred feet from here. When they fire it almost knocks 
you down; and when they fire at night, like they did last night, you can't sleep. 

Of course there are hundreds of guns all around us, and when they all get going you have a nice 
little Fourth of July celebration. 

[259] 



At night, when all these guns get going, you have a sight which can never be forgotten. Every hill 
for miles around seems to belch out a little hell all its own. Everywhere you look there is a continuous 
stream of fire. Add to that the noise of the shells passing over and the noise of bursting German shells, 
and you can realize, if your imagination is fertile, what a terrible rumpus is kicked up. I never saw a 
more terrible, yet more inspiring sight, than artillery fire at night. You have to see the thing to rea- 
lize it. 

I didn't get much sleep last night; there was too much noise and I hadn't grown accustomed to it 
yet. Besides, stretcher bearers were bringing in wounded a good part of the night, and we had to get 
out and take them to the hospital. 

We work four "Poste de Secours". There is one car at one postc all the time. Every day we move 
up to a new poste. Thus we are out four days at a stretch from our base, which is five miles from 
the lines. 

We have (George Griffith and I) been out at the front three days. We have one more poste — one 
that only can be reached at night with any degree of safety. We go there tonight at 8 :36. leave at 
4 in the morning for our base, where we can rest for about four days. 

Thus for four days I have slept only about ten hours. But I shall make up when I get back to base. 
It is too much strain to stay here all the time. 

Before I came out here I had a ride in an aeroplane. We were stationed for a few days right beside 
an aviation camp. I got chummy with a pilot and seized the opportunity when it came. You told 
me not to take any unnecessary danger when I left. I have disobeyed this order once. I could not 
resist the temptation to take an aeroplane flight. We were up twenty minutes, during which time I 
managed to almost freeze. I wasn't scared a bit after I got used to it; it is not like being on top of a 
high building; you get no sensation of dizziness, because the machine is all around you. 

You can't talk — too much noise from the motor. You can't imagine the sensation of gliding along 
absolutely unburdened in mid-air. You get a certain sense of freedom, just like a bird must feel. 

When you take a dive (and we took plenty) your stomach comes up in your mouth as if you were 
descending in a fast elevator. 

But the thing that scares you at first is this: when you take a turn you bank your machine up on 
one side so that the planes point straight to the ground. In other words, you turn your machine half 
way over to take the turn properly. 

Well, the first time he did this, I had a funny feeling: I thought sure I was a goner. The ground 
looks awfully far off' and you say, "well, I do hope that motor keeps going". But I enjoyed the ex- 
perience a lot and would like to go again. 

When he came down, he came straight down for about 1,580 feet, when he straightened and touched 
the ground as softly as a feather. I have a picture taken as I was coming out of the machine after 
the flight; will send it to you. 

We have lots of fun here dodging aeroplane bombs. It has been moonlight here for a week — very 
suitable time for air raids. The first time they came over was one of the beautiful nights we were 
beside the aviation camp, before we came to the front. They like to bomb aeroplane camps, you know. 

Imagine the scene : We were sleeping in our cars on the stretchers (we always sleep in our cars when 
we are not in a dangerous place). Here, however, we sleep in a cave, as I said before, very deep under- 
ground. Last night the Frenchmen in here closed all the doors, started their terribly strong pipes, 
with a result very conducive to headache in the morning. 

Between the artillery, bad air and huge rats, which run joyfully over your blankets and across 
your bunk, I had very little sleep. To tell the truth, I was more afraid of the rats than the German 
shells. 

But to return to the aeroplane story. We were all sleeping soundly, when a guard cries out, "Des 
Bosches. des Bosches: cher chez les abris" (the Germans, the Germans; go to the underground cave.) 

[260 1 



Well away everybody runs like frightened sheep to the caves. We never undress on duty, so of 
course we did not have to dress. 

You hear the German planes draw nearer and nearer — a dull, humming sound in the nio-ht, like a 
distant hive of bees. Soon you see the French searchlights search the sky, a beautiful sight, and soon 
you hear a tap, tap of the machine guns and anti-aircraft guns. But the German planes grow nearer. 
Soon the motor ceases for a moment and almost simultaneously with that you hear a fearful explosion 
A German bomb dropped from the plane. They have never come very close to me yet, but they cause 
terrible destruction and make you hunt the caves at all hours of the night. Of course I see lots of 
German planes by day. By day they observe; at night they drop bombs. 

A French plane is a common sight. You see it flying very high, with clouds of whitesmoke all around 
it. These small bunches of clouds of white smoke are French shells. In exploding they leave a white 
smoke, so that it can be determined how close the shell came. The Germans, in firing on French planes 
use a shell which leaves a black cloud of smoke. Likewise you can tell German shrapnel by the size 
cloud of smoke it leaves. 

Yesterday I saw a battle between a German and French plane. It was the most exciting thing 
imaginable. They were very high, but easily seen. They would make for each other, all the time 
firing their guns. Then one would take a long dive, which looked all the world like it was falling, and 
everybody would draw a breath. Then the machine would right itself, swoop down in a lono- circle 
and up again, in an endeavor to get above the other plane. The higher plane has the advantage. I 
never saw such clever maneuvering. But at last the Frenchman got above and down the German came 
Hke a stone, his machine turning over as he came. It was a terrible sickening sight to see him fall, 
but we all cheered. 

Sunday, July 1.5th. 

As I was writing this letter a call came for wounded at another poste de secours, even nearer the line 
than this one. So we went up there in the dead of night, the night of July 13th, carried our wounded 
down to the hospital, arriving there about 4 A. M. We rested there a day. Then we came out to this 
poste again — the place where I started this letter and hope to finish it. 

i: ' As I said, we are way underground here, practically safe from shell fire, but we dare not go out and 
stand around. The Germans are shelling pretty heavily this morning, although mo.st of them are 
going over our heads, in an effort to hit the French artillery in the rear of us. 

You can see the devilish things as they come. They make a whining, growfing sound miles off. 
As they get nearer the whine gets more and more distinct. The dickens of it is that you can hear the 
whine but you can't tell at all where it will land. 

I had an interesting experience last night. When we were coming out here, the guai'd along the 
road stopped us and told us to stop at a certain poste a httle farther on, because the road beyond that 
was being heavily shelled; so we did stop. I had just put my machine in when I heard that infernal 
whining sound. I immediately lay flat on the ground, following the example of all the rest. Well 
the shell wasn't very far off; nobody was hurt, of course, but after that everybody went in the cave. 

We wear steel helmets to protect us from shrapnel. They are very heavy at first, but we easily o-et 
used to them. We are also compelled to carry our gas masks with us at all times. 

Well, as I said, we stopped a while at this poste along the road, until it was safe to proceed. But 
the Germans weren't satisfied with ordinary shrapnel sheels; they began to send over gas shells. When 
these explode they fill the air with gas, for the purpose of hindering French artillery fire. This was 
not dangerous gas, only tear gas. It makes you cough and cry like a baby ; the tears just stream down 
your face; it's a funny sight. Well, the way to get around that is to put on your gas mask, and that 
is what we did. You stop crying at once. Then everything goes fine. It's a funny sight to see men 
running around with these masks on. just like a bunch of men with false faces, but with them they can 

(2611 



proceed to their various tasks unhindered by the gas. Well, as we were running around there with 
these masks, we found out we had to proceed on our way. So we did. 

Yesterday was the 4th of July for the Frenchmen, you know: that is the 14th of July. They cele- 
brated the occasion by giving the Germans a very severe artillery fire from 6 to 9 P. M . So as we started 
out and were proceeding along the road, all the French artillery all around us opened up. We were 
right in the midst of noise that almost shook your heart out of you. Add to that the gas. a few German 
shells and a road filled up with wagoners yelling and crying at their horses. It was a great experience, 
not particularly dangerous, but rather trying on the nerves. If some one had been with us and hadn't 
known that all the noise around us was French artillery fire, he would have died from fear, because it 
really was horrible. 

You learn to know when you are in danger very soon, and as for the horrible shell fire, you soon 
get used to it. But I don't want you to worry about me. This may seem bad when you read it, but,

believe me, it is not particularly dangerous. I only write about shells, etc.. because I want you to know 
about some of the methods of this war. 

If you were sitting beside me now, transported, as it were, by some Divine way (I wish it were 
true), and hadn't grown used to this thing, you would think that there wasn't ver>- much chance for 
this poor kid. 

It is now 4 P. M., Sunday. But who would know it is Sunday? You are now in church and I 
can't help envying you. There is a church in this town, but only one seat left, so I guess we won't 
attend today. I say you are gathered together in that good old church at Centre, far away from war. 
Would to God there was no war here. I can walk ten feet and see a hundred stone piles, all that is 
left of a hundred happy homes, all the inhabitants gone, the church destroyed, the trees shot into 
stumps: and so it is all over this war zone. 



262 



I have seen the war now and I know what it is. Thank God it can't last much longer: it may be 
over by winter. When I realize that hundreds of thousands have given up their lives, when I see all 
this destruction of property, when I carry wounded who yell every time you drive over a rough road 
too fast, it makes me sick and also makes me think this business is no fun. It is nice to talk about 
in America, but here it is hell. 

I have only received one letter from you since I left home. I have written you often, but do not 
know whether you ever received them or not. 

The mail system over here is naturally very irregular. I have quite a lot of postals and pictures 
(my running mate has two cameras and I shall got the pictures he takes), but can't send them now. 
You will see them when I get home. 

I wish I could tell you all I see and hear and feel, I know I will be a bettei man for it all. 

Don't worry about me. Write me often and I shall try to do the same. Remember that, after 
all, I am not in so much danger as thousands of other men. We must do our duty. 

I send my love to you all.

LETTER RECEIVED RY MRS. A. L. RAIR ON HER SON HAROLDS DEATH 

October 20, 1918. 
France. 
Mrs. a. L Bair, 

Hanover, Pa. 

My dear Mrs. Bair: 

You will know of your son's death by the time this reaches you, and I am not writing to sadden 
you, but to tell you all I know about the circumstances of his death on the field of battle, and to tell 
the love and esteem all of his comrades bore toward him. 

It was the last day of the battle, and Regimental Headquarters was located on the edge of a little 
woods on top of a hill. Through the woods, down the gentle slope and across the little valley, another 
woods, and there were the Germans with batteries and machine guns. We were right out in the open, 
and shells had been exploding about us all day, gas, shrapnel, and high explosive. 

About 2:30 in the afternoon — it was Sunday, September 29th the Colonel was dictating a message 
to Harold, and I stood facing both of them, a few feet away. A high explosive shell burst behind 
me, and after the stun of the deafening crash, the Colonel and Harold lay on the ground. The Adjutant 
and I rushed to them. The Colonel was only bruised — a piece of shell had ripped his canteen apart 
and only bruised him. Harold got a large fragment, tearing a great gash in his right leg below his 
thigh and in back. Major Cornwell himself was there. Chief Regimental Surgeon, and he immediately 
composed Harold's leg, applied a tourniquet and bandage, gave him an anti-tetanus injection, and 
later a little morphine to relieve his pain. He was conscious throughout, and as brave as any man I 
have ever seen, although he was rapidly losing strength. We did everything possible for him, for we 
loved him and respected him. 

He called me to him and asked me: "Am I going to die. Lieutenant.''" I couldn't tell him, and 
told him he would soon be asleep, and I gave him of my canteen. A few minutes later he called me 
to him and asked: "Captain you are a Mason, aren't you.^" I told him, "Yes", and he said: 
"Won't you write to my good old mother, she is a Quaker, and you tell her she is right, — and that I 
love her". Then he closed his eyes. He murmured a bit after then in his sleep, and died about 
four o'clock. 

f 263 1 



The battle continued, and I had to continue the message that he had started — working to the last. 
I saw him he quiet, and walked to him and covered him with a captured German shelter-half, and there 
on the field of battle, with shells still bursting about his noble body, I stood a moment in prayer, and 
my heart wept for this splendid man, your son. 

We had to leave him there when another American regiment relieved us. He wore his identification 
tag, and you will doubtless hear oflicially of his death and place of burial, probably about two kilo- 
meters north of JMontfaucon, not many miles from ^'erdun. 

I enclose some papers from his notebook and some cards. I don't know who has his personal 
things. The photograph of the French girl is of Odette Audie, the little school teacher back in the 
town where we had our peaceful training. Harold and I both have talked with her together in those 
quiet days. She is a good girl, and would grieve for your son. 

Tell the members of his lodge that I. a Mason, Conemaugh ^'alley Lodge No. 692, Johnstown, Pa., 
esteemed him as a worthy brother. 

And to you, his mother, I write my heartfelt sympathy. He lived nobly and died nobly, held 
the highest non-commissioned office the Regiment offers. Regimental Sergeant-Major, and was loved 
by all his comrades. 

Believe me, 

Very sincerely,

LETTER RECEIVED BY MR. R. H. KLINEDINST DESCRIBING HOW HIS SON 
JOSEPH WAS KILLED IN ACTION 

Dear Mr. Klinedinsl: 

The boys of Company F wish to thank you for your kind letter, and we respect your noble and 
manly spirit with which you accept the news of the death of your boy. 

We mourn with you the loss of a good friend and comrade. Joseph was a friend of every man in 
the Company. You have good reasons to be proud of your boy. He went through the second battle 
of the Marne, and let me tell you there were but a few of us that came back. 

Then we were up in the St. Mihiel sector, and later on the Verdun front, but when we came back 
from there Joseph was not with us. He was used as a messenger at the front, and it was while per- 
forming this duty that he was killed. Unselfishly he offered his life for the great cause, for his Country, 
his flag and his loved ones. 

Two messengers were sent out over a shelled field. It looked like certain death, but they had 
orders to deliver the messages. One messenger turned back, the other went forward to perform his 
duty— after the battle he was found on the battlefield, the message still with him. That was your boy. 
He had himself received a greater and more important message from the Almighty above, and he had 
responded cheerfully. 

From The Boys Of Company F.

LETTER RECEIVED BY MRS. ANNIE C. ALTHOFF FROM CAPTAIN N. H. MASSIE 
DESCRIBING THE DEATH OF HER SON SERGEANT PAUL J. ALTHOFF 

In replying to your letter of February 16, 1919, inquiring as to particulars of your son's death, 
I will endeavor to accquaint you with all the details that tend to alleviate the sorrow of a loved one's 
death. To know the exact manner of how he was wounded and how he accepted his fate will no doubt 
seem to shorten the time and distance between him and you since you last saw him. 

It was on the 11th day of June, 1918, when the U. S. Marines had been holding back the Huns in 
Bellau Woods, and standing between them and Paris, when even the French soldiers had been giving 
ground. They stayed when it seemed that nothing could resist the hordes of Hun shock troops that 
were thrown against their lines. Paul was in the midst of the fiercest part of this fighting and time 
and time again proved himself a hero by his gallant actions and fighting abilities. There was no such 
word as " Fear " for him. On this day the Marines seeking greater honors than merely stopping the 
invaders, started to push them back and caused them to retreat some few kilometers. 

It was while making this glorious advance in the Bois de la Brigade de Marines, (so named in honor 
of the Marines who fought there in June), that our Company was held up by a machine gun. Your 
son Paul volunteered with several other men to capture this gun. They captured it too but while 
rushing this machine gun, the gunners of which were firing at its highest speed, Paul was struck by 
a machine gun bullet that inflicted a wound which caused his death in Feld Hospital No. 15 a few- 
hours later. 

He knew his wound would be fatal, but accepted circumstances calmly. When some of his com- 
rades were bearing him ofl' of the field to the hospital he conversed with them on the glorious beating 
they had given the enemy that day, and how he was sorry to think that he would not be able to get 
another crack at them. It was with great sorrow that his comrades parted with him at the dressing 
station. Paul had made himself a friend with the entire company on account of his never ending 
good humor and wiUingness to bear his share of the burden, never complaining and always a source of 
good cheer. It was during this battle that the commanding officer of his company was mortally 
wounded. 

I regret that I am unable to inform you as to the location of Cemetery No. 211, but rest assured 
that you will soon be notified of the exact spot. It is my most earnest desire that you may find com- 
fort and solace in these lines, and that the knowledge that your son bravely sacrificed his life for the 
benefit of his comrades and country on the field of honor may in some way recompense you for your 
great sacrifice.

ROSCOE HANNIGAN, EAST PROSPECT, DESCRIBES THE ACTION 
IN WHICH HE WAS DISABLED 

On the Riviera, November 2, 1918. 
Dear Brother: 

Tonight I am happy pourquoi (why).^ Simply because I received oodles and oodles of letters in 
today's mail from home, sweet home, the first mail to reach me since the latter part of August, thus the 
joy and happiness. There is nothing that will bring more cheer and gladness to me than news from 
the good old U. S. A. During my sojourn in France I have done very little corresponding, practically 
all of my writing has been in the form of little notes, which I mailed to the folks at home whenever 

[265 1 



the opportunity presented itself, just merely stating conditions in a rather indefinite manner, for I 
was afraid to go into details owing to the censorship which existed in our division : then again during 
the months of July and August my regiment was continually in the trenches and my position as bat- 
taHon surgeon kept me extremely busy ; then following my misfortune the last week of August, which 
I never gave you the full details of more than that I was sick in the hospital and physically unable 
to write. 

However, since kind Providence spared my life and I am away down here along the Riviera con- 
valescing, I will give you a short synopsis of how it happened. It was one bright morning just as 
dawn was breaking, the birds in the trees singing their beautiful morning melodies, the entire front 
peaceful and quiet, everybody fully clothed and at their post for stand too — suddenly Uke a bolt out of 
the beautiful blue sky the Boche opened with their big guns. It was a perfect barrage and accurately 
laid down. Prior to this we had daily combats with the Boche artillery and I had sort of become 
accustomed to the howling and bursting of their shells. However, during my stay in the front. I never 
experienced such a terrific bombardment as we had that morning — the whole earth apparently shook 
and the noise was indescribable, bits of shrapnel and missiles flying in all directions. The air became foul 
smelhng and extremely pungent. Ah ! gas phosgene and mustard. I was busily engaged administering 
to some of the poor boys who had been hit. Assisting me was my sergeant and several stretcher bearers ; 
neither one of us detected the gas until we all inhaled some of the poisonous substance. 

Immediately we adjusted our masks but the damage had already been done, at least to me, for 
at that time I was a bit put ot t with the Spanish Flu and my respiratory organs were not in a very 
receptive mood for gas. 

We did not adjust our masks immediately at the first sound of the thrombus horn and gongs. My 
aid station was located a .short distance in the rear and consequently we did not hear the signal, the 
noise was so great. ^ly little band of M. C. boys and I continued to work until we had all of our 
casualties for the morning disposed of — went to my dugout extremely tired and feeling none too good 
from the gas which I inhaled. I continued to grow worse and by night was violently ill. In a little 
while found myself on a stretcher, carrying me out of my dugout and gently placing the stretcher and 
its contents in an ambulance, rushed off to a field hospital about nine or ten kilometers in the rear. 
Oh! I was some sick boy — with each breath it felt hke someone was sticking a dagger into my back 
and chest. The following day my attending physician told me that I had pneumonia. Long about 
the sixth or seventh day of my sojourn at the field hospital the Boche decided that I remained there 
long enough and immediately began to shell the small town in which the hospital was located. It 
was a damp, dark and foggy night, and at the most critical period of my illness. Nevertheless the order 
came through to move all patients. 

Once again I was placed on a stretcher and in an ambulance and then began the wild ride midst 
bursting shells over shell-hole roads to a French hospital base, located in a city of about 75,000. twenty 
kilometers in the rear. For excitement I don't think that Sheridan's ride up the Shenandoah or Paul 
Revere's famous ride had anything on it, not saying anything about a trip to Baltimore on the Maryland 
and Pennsylvania. However, I was too sick to enjoy it. Arrived O.K. at the French hospital, but I 
thought it was finish for Ross. The next few days were extremely hazardous ones for me. On several 
occasions I had visions of going West, but fortunately I received excellent treatment from the French 
doctors and in a few days began to show signs of improvement. I might say that the Boche followed 
me here for I was only here about a week when one night motors were heard buzzing in the heavens, 
which gradually became louder. Anti-aircraft guns opened fire on them. Wc' then knew that they 
were Hun planes bombing the city. 

They flew directly over the hospital, but fortunately did not drop any bombs on us. It was rather 
thrilling and exciting, nevertheless. Of course. I did not see them as I was confined to bed. Several 
of the patients who were able to be up and around told me that they were flying low and could easily 

[266 1 



see them with the naked eye in the dark. I remained in this hospital about four weeks and then was 
taken still further back, about fifty miles, to a large American base. I am now able to be out of bed 
and tottering about a bit. Remained here just twenty days when the C. O. wished a sick leave of 
thirty days on me, and sent me down here along the Mediterranean to convalesce. 

Of course, I did not object very strenuously, for it has been a real treat to me. In a previous letter 
to you I told you about stopping over in Paris enroute here, and visiting the American mihtary 
cemetery at Suresnes, on the slope of Mont Valerien, where our dear brother Chester is sleeping be- 
neath the sod. I also told you of the beautiful flowers growing on his grave ; of the beautiful green grass 
growing thereon, and in general how well-kept the cemetery was. I inquired from some of the boys as to 
who was so kind and thoughtful in planting the beautiful flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes, 
but no one seemed to know. A few days ago while reading the New York Herald, Paris edition, the 
puzzle was solved. It gave a beautiful description of how the good French mothers of Suresnes go daily 
to the cemetery and care for the graves of those who have died that France and civilization might live. 
It impressed me so much that I immediately wrote to Mme. Quention, who instigated the plan of taking 
care of the graves of the boys who sacrificed their lives on the field of honor, thanking her and the good 
mothers of Suresnes for their kindness and generosity. I also enclosed a check for her to purchase a 
floral design to place on brother's grave, a token of remembrance and devotion to our dear departed 
brother from his sisters and brothers. I also requested her to take several views of his grave, and will 
send them home when I receive them. 

Yesterday Lieutenant Demsey, who is here on sick leave, and I visited the lies De Lerius, lying in 
the bay opposite Cannes, two small islands. On the Island of Ste. Marguerite is a gloomy old prison in 
which was incarcerated from 1687 to 1689 the mysterious "Man of the Iron Mask," whom I have often 
read about in books. It is now used as a prison camp for Boche prisoners of war. We made the trip 
in a small sailboat, and to tell the truth I was not at all displeased when I landed safely on terra firma, 
for the sea was extremely rough, in fact the riding of the waves preyed more on my digestive organs 
than the trip across the Atlantic in the early part of June. However, it was a splendid trip and would 
not have missed it for anything. My convalescent leave has about come to an end; the day of de- 
parture is not far off. I am sorry in a sense to go, for I realize the sadness and heartaches which will 
welcome me at the end of my journey. My regiment has been in the thick of the recent big drive, 
and I know that many of my friends that bade me good-bye and good luck will not be present to greet 
me. Many have fallen on the field of honor since I left my organization, and are now sleeping beneath 
the sacred soil of France with a little cross at their head, signifying that they died for world democracy. 

Oh, yes, it will be a sad day when I return to my regiment and glanca over the roll. However, 
such are the fortunes of war. No doubt that ere you receive this I will again be with the boys on our 
way to Berlin. Hoping this will find you all well and happy, I remain lovingly, your brother, 

ROSCOE.

YORK COUNTY BOYS LEAVING FOR CAMP 




THESE ARE SOME OF THE 6000 YORK COUNTY SOLDIERS AS THEY LEFT HOME 



w 



"GOBDOM" 

HEN a "Rookie" first reaches a training camp. 
He's scared half to death, feels like a tramp. 
An orderly leads him to the "'sick-bay," 
Where he is examined without delay. 



After the "exam" at the receiving ship, 

He gets a bag-o-clothing regardless of fit. 

"What size shoes.^" "Oh about seven." 

The store-keeper throws him a pair marked ele^'en. 

The outfit's complete, in white he's dressed. 
And marched to the barracks with the rest. 
There he's enrolled and assigned to a billet, 
Given a hammock and told how to fill it. 

Then comes the matter of lashing up things, 
No Irish penants showing, their ends of strings. 
To stencil all clothes is an endless job. 
But there's more dirty work in becoming a gob. 

Twenty-one days in detention he must stay. 
And in spite of hard work, gets no pay. 
For three long weeks, sunshine or rain. 
He never even hears or sees a "Jane". 

Oh yes! And then there's the terrible situation. 

He wonders if he'll faint at that first inoculation. 

He musters up courage and says: "I will not," 

But a "Gob" hoUers: " Wait till you git your second shot.' 

He lives through the first and hears an awful yain. 
A five-foot fall from a hammock. Oh that arm ! 
He goes for his second, but not very bold. 
And sure enough it knocks him out cold. 

After he recovers, as they sometimes do. 

There's still the third shot coming. Whew! 

But the last one. very strange to say. 

In spite of all kidding didn't even make him sway. 

All thru the day fwas drill! drill! drill! 
At night stick to the hammock or spill! spill! spiU! 
He dreams of storms and terrible ship-wrecks. 
But wakes up to find he's just hit the deck. 

Then there's bag inspection and aU that to know. 

Everything must be as white as snow. 

Clean ditty boxes, scrubbed down decks. 

The sea bags and hammocks musn't show a speck. 



70 



He must wash every night, watch the clothes line sway, 
For the "Rookie" must wear clean whites every day. 
If ever his clothes from the clothes line fell, 
The "Skipper" at mast, would give him hell. 

Then he studies wig-wag, blinkers and semaphore, 
Navigation, seamanship and a whole lot more. 
He thinks while driUing he will soon be a "Gob." 
When out of step he gets, and into the awkward squad. 

In his hammock at night, in spite of the pain. 
He lays awake thinking of his little "Jane." 
At "Taps" he starts "cussin" the Hun heavily. 
Till he hears: "Hit the deck sailor." At "Reveille." 

At last the twenty-one days are past. 

And the dream of liberty comes near at last. 

He breaks out shining in his liberty blues. 

Rut "Alas"! the week end guard they must choose. 

Then curse the bad luck, he's put on guard. 
When the rest shove off, he can't leave the yard. 
He growls: "I'm out of luck!" He walks his post 
Through the night up and down the deserted coast. 

Then the "Rookie" begins to plan what he will do, 
When's he's one of the liberty party in blue. 
Right then and there and all thru the night. 
He repeats, "War is hell." Sherman was right. 

There's all kinds of fighters in the U. S. N. 

"Rookies, Gobs, Sailors (Yoeman) and other men. 

Rut to the "Rookie" the worst of the whole crew, at that 

Are the "Jimmey-legs" with their, "Where do you think yer at.^' 

Rut after all is said and done. 

He did his bit. to beat the hun, 

Fighting on land and sea was his job. 

And there'd have been no War without the "Gob".

SATIRE ON THE KAISER 

HIS SATANIC MAJESTY ABDICATED IN FAVOR OF KAISER WILHELM OF GERMANY 

THE ATROCIOUS BUTCHER 

AND SURRENDERS THE KEYS AND ALL SULPHUROUS FIRES WITH WHICH THE INFERNAL 
REGIONS ARE SUPPOSED TO CONTAIN 

WHEN Louis Syberkrop, of Creston, Iowa, wrote the satire on Kaiser Wilhelm, which follows, 
he httle thought it would attract the attention which it has. Requests for copies have come 
to him from Theodore Roosevelt, Secretary of the Navy Daniels, Secretary to the President 
Tumulty, and other notables. The article is in the form of a letter from his Satanic majesty to his 
human prototype. It says: 

"To Wilhelm von HohenzoUern, King of Prussia, Emperor of all Germany and Envoy Extraordinary 
of Almighty God. 

"My Dear Wilhelm: I can call you by that famihar name, for I have always been very close to 
you — much closer than you could ever know. 

"From the time that you were yet an undeveloped being in your mother's womb have I shaped 
your destiny for my purpose. 

"In the days of Rome I created a roughneck known in history as Nero. He was a vulgar character 
and suited my purpose at that particular time. In these modern days a classic demon and efficient 
super-criminal was needed, and as I had known the HohenzoUern blood I picked you as my special 
instrument to place on earth an annex to hell. I gave you abnormal ambition, likewise an oversupply 
of egotism that you might not discover your own faihngs; I twisted your mind to that of a madman 
with certain normal tendencies to carry you by, a most dangerous character placed in power; I gave 
you the power of a hypnotist and a certain magnetic force that you might sway your people. I am 
responsible for the deformed arm that hangs helpless on your left, for your crippled condition embitters 
your life and destroys all noble impulses that might otherwise cause me anxiety, but your strong sword 
arm is driven by your ambition that squelches all sentiment and pity; I placed in your soul a deep 
hatred for all things English, for of all nations on earth I hate England most; wherever England plants 
her flag she brings order out of chaos and the hated cross follows the Union Jack: under her rule wild 
tribes become tillers of the soil and in due time practical citizens; she is the great civilizer of the globe 
and I HATE HER. I planted in your soul a cruel hatred for your mother because SHE was English, 
and left my good friend Bismarck to fan the flame I had kindled. Recent history proves how well our 
work was done. It broke your royal mother's heart, but I gained my purpose. 

"The inherited disease of the HohenzoUerns killed your father, just as it will kill you, and you be- 
came the ruler of Germany and a tool of mine sooner than I expected. 

"To assist you and further hasten my work, I sent you three evil spirits— Nietzsche, Trischke and 
later Bernhardi— whose teachings inflamed the youths of Germany, who in good time would be willing 
and loyal subjects and eager to spill their blood and pull your chestnuts, yours, and mine; the spell has 
been perfect — you cast your ambitious eyes toward the Mediterranean, Egypt, India and the Dar- 
danelles and you began your great railway to Bagdad, but the ambitious archduke and his more am- 
bitious wife stood in your way. It was then that I sowed the seed in your heart that blossomed into 
the assassination of the duke and his wife, and all hell smiled when it saw how cleverly you saddled the 
crime on Serbia. I saw you set sails for the fiords of Norway and I knew you would prove an alibi. 
How cleverly done, so much hke your noble grandfather who also secured an assassin to remove old 
King Fredrick of Denmark, and later robbed that country of two provinces that gave Germany an 
opportunity to become a naval power. Murder is dirty work, but it takes a HohenzoUern to make 
away and get by. 



"Your opportunity was at hand; you set the world on fire and bells of hell were ringing; your rape 
on Belgium caused much joy. It was the beginning, the foundation of a perfect hell on earth; the de- 
struction of noble cathedrals and other infinite works of art was hailed with joy in the infernal 
regions. 

"You made war on friends and foe alike and the murder of civilians showed my teachings had borne 
fruit. Your treachery toward neutral nations hastened a universal upheaval, the thing I most desired. 
Your undersea warfare is a master stroke, from the smallest mackerel pot to the great Lusitania you 
show no fa%orites; as a war lord you stand supreme, for you have no mercy; you have no consideration 
for the baby clinging to its mother's breasts as they both go down into the deep together, only to be 
torn apart and leisurely devoured by sharks down among the corals. 

"I have strolled over the battlefields of Belgium and France. I have seen your hand of destruction 
everywhere; its all your work super-fiend that I made you. I have seen the fields of Poland; now a 
wilderness fit for prowling beasts only: no merry children in Poland now; they all succumbed to frost 
and starvation — I driften down into Galicia where formerly Jews and Gentiles hved happily together; 
I found but ruins and ashes; I felt a curious pride in my pupil, for it was all above my expectation. I 
was in Belgium when you drove the peaceful population before you like cattle into slav^ery : you sep- 
arated man and wife and forced them to hard labor in trenches. I have seen the most fiendish rape 
committed on young women and those who were forced into maternity were cursing the father of their 
offspring and I began to doubt if my own inferno was really up to date. 

"You have taken millions of dollars from innocent victims and called it indemnity; you have lived 
fat on the land you usurped and sent the real owners away to starvation. You have strayed away 
from all legalized war methods and introduced a code of your own. You have killed and robbed the 
people of friendly nations and destroyed their property. You are a Uar, a hypocrite and a bluffer of the 
highest magnitude. You are a part of mine and yet you pose as a personal friend of God. Ah, Wilhelm, 
you are a wonder. You wantonly destroy all things in your path and leave nothing for coming 
generations. 

"I was amazed when I saw you form a partnership with the impossible Turk, the chronic killer of 
Christians, and you a devout worshipper in the Lutheran church. I confess, Wilhelm, you are a puzzle 
at all times. A Mohammedan army, commanded by German officers, assisting one another in mas- 
sacring Christians is a new fine of warfare. When a Prussian officer can witness a nude woman being 
disemboweled by a swarthy Turk, committing a double murder with one cut of his saber, and calmly 
stand by and see a house full of innocent Armenians locked up, the house saturated with oil andfu'ed, 
then my teachings did not stop with you, but have been extended to the whole German nation. I 
confess my Satanic soul grew sick and there and then I knew my pupil had become the master. I am 
a back number, and, my dear Wilhelm. I abdicate in your favor. The great key of hell will be turned 
over to you. The gavel that has struck the doom of damned souls since time began is yours. I am 
satisfied with what I have done; that my abdication in your favor is for the very best interests of hell — 
in the future I am at your majesty's service. 

"Affectionately and sincerely.

OVERHEARD ON A TRAIN SPEEDING FROM BERLIN TO HOLLAND. 

" ■ "*APA. are we winning or losing the war?" 

I"^^ "Shutup, and stop calling me papa. I am sick at the stomach that I should have such an ass 
for a son. Of course we are winning, this is only a strategic retirement." 

"I know papa, but if we should retire much farther we will need an imler see boot." 

"Shut up." 

"Papa, are you sure that Holland is neutral?" 

"Certainly Holland is neutral. Did I not issue a Royal Decree to that effect?" 

"But, papa, the idiotic Yankees were neutral and now look at them." 

"Shut up." 

"Papa, why don't you have the train go to Paris?" 

"That is a matter of State which at this time it would be injudicious to discuss." 

"Papa, who started this war?" 

"England, of course." 

"Who finished it, papa!" 

"Shut up." 

"Papa, when will you command the loyal Germans in America to take Washington?" 

"That is a matter for further thought. I am in receipt of important dispatches from General Sauer 
von Kraut which state that he and his staff have temporarily retired to Altanta, Georgia, to seriously 
consider if the time is ripe for a general uprising. He only awaits my decision in the matter." 

"Papa, what is an armistice?" 

"My son, an armistice is a German diplomatic move by which cumbersome and useless material is 
thrust upon the enemy and which gives the noble German soldiers a furlough to visit their homes for 
Christmas. An armistice is sometimes necessary to strenghten the morale of the Army." 

"Why did you abdicate, papa?" 

"I temporarily abdicated out of the generosity of my heart so as not to embarrass the German people 
with the presence of Royalty during their celebration of the colossal German victory in forcing the 
enemy to bow to our demand for an armistice." 

"But papa, the Grand Fleet has revolted." 

"My son will you never learn? The revolting of the Grand Fleet is simply a naval way of showing 
the patriotism of the German sailors. They take this method to express to the world their respect and 
admiration for their Kaiser. You certainly must, in the near furture, resume your lessons of naval 
customs under Admiral von Tirpitz." 

"Papa, where is the peace conference to be held, in Berlin, Paris or Versailles?" 

"I have not as yet decided. But should the date fall on Christmas, I believe that Paris will be 
my choice." 

"Will you be present, papa?" 

"I think not, as I have matters of the greatest importance, which no doubt will detain me in Holland 
and — anyway, I cannot be troubled with details. I have commanded von Hindenburg to see that the 
German people attend to this matter." 

"Why isn't von Hindenburg with us, papa?" 

"Because he was not invited. You know we left Potsdam suddenly in the night and I had no time 
to bother with him. Also it is of the utmost importance that he attend to certain details of the armistice 
which I imposed upon the enemy." 

"Papa, what do you intend doing with Alsace-Lorraine!" 

"That is the matter which I have ceased to trouble about, but I may impose upon them the penalty 
of being governed by France as a punishment for their attitude in the early days of the war." 

[274] 



"What Generals do you intend to honor after you have dictated the peace terms to the enemy?" 

"Such a fool question for a Prince of the Royal Blood to ask. The entire credit belongs to me." 

"But papa, how about Gott?" 

"I must admit that in a hurry of this diplomatic journey to Holland I had entirely forgotten Gott. 
Of course, he assisted me in a small way. The matter of his reward I will consider at a later date." 

"Papa, why did Austria, Turkey and Bulgaria quit.^" 

"Because I decided at a conference of the War council that they were of no further use to me and 
I did not wish them to participate in the spoils of this glorious day of victory." 

"So, papa, this is 'der tag.-*" 

"Yes, my son, this is 'der tag' and my only regret is that that old fool Bismarck is not alive to witness 
my hour of supreme triumph." 

"But, papa, cannot you detail Gott to acquaint him with the facts.I>" 

"A brilHant idea; I will do so immediately. If you had only used your brain at Verdun in a like 
manner, my victory would have been much greater, but as it is I confer the Iron Cross of the First 
Order upon you for your suggestion about Gott!.^" 

"Papa, why have you decided to give billions of marks to the enemy.I>" 

"Once again you have lapsed into stupidity, therefore I withdraw the Iron Cross of the First Order. 
This was my greatest financial achievement; it was a matter which only a master mind like mine could 
have conceived. In addition to being a just punishment to the enemy, it materially benefits the German 
Empire, in that the German mark will have a worldwide circulation. 

"Papa, when we are dead and gone and the history of this war written how will you rank with Na- 
poleon.^" 

"My son, Napoleon's deeds will be forgotten when the coming generations readofWilhelm.the Just. 
You do not think for one moment that I have left this important matter to a lot of ignorant historians. 
The history of this war has already been written according to my dictation and is in Potsdam. Your 
reference to my being dead and gone is very ill-timed. How many times have I told you that Wil- 
helm will never die. Do you forget that Wilhelm and Gott are immortal?" 

"But. papa, how about your sons, aren't you going to provide for them? You know I also want to 
be immortal. Just make me immortal, perhaps it will not matter so much about the rest." 

"My son. I am Wilhelm. the Just. I will not make you immortal without doing the same for the 
rest of my sons. In my judgment, and I am always right, I am the only one entitled to the honor, 
it is my just due, therefore not being able in fairness to confer the honor upon all, I have decided to 
retain it for myself alone." 

"Father, you are indeed Wilhelm, the Just." 

"Thank you, my son. I have tried to live up to the title." 

"Papa, the train has arrived at the station; we are at the border of Holland. Why do the Dutch 
people thumb their noses at the Imperial train?" 

"It is a special salute of respect to me which I commanded the people of Holland to observe upon 
my arrival." 

"Do we get out here, papa?" 

"Yes, I have decided to continue my journey by automobile." 

"Papa, you have dropped your box of dope pills." 

"Thank you. my son, you shall have the Iron Cross; you are very observing and have rendered me 
a great service."

YORK COUNTY AND THE EARLY WARS OF OUR HISTORY 

PART I. FRENCH AND INDIAN WARS 

AN account of the part taken by the city and county of York in the World War is a suijject of 
great interest at the present time. The purport of this introductory story is to give in graphic 
detail a few of the facts relating to the part taken by our ancestors of York County in the 
previous wars of our history. 

The facts prove that York County had its birth during a World War which then involved nearly 
the whole of Europe, the center of civilization at that time. This chapter starts with the early settle- 
ment of the colonies, including Pennsylvania, and the contention about the claims to territory in western 
Pennsylvania and the Ohio Valley. This contention brought about the French and Indian War, the 
first conflict of arms in which the soldiers of York County took part. In that war nearly 1,000 sturdy 
settlers of our own county, at that time including the area of Adams County, participated. 

The eastern and middle parts of Pennsylvania were settled during a time of troublesome wars on 
the continent of Europe. The linglish had formed colonies along the Atlantic coast from Massachu- 
setts to Georgia early in our colonial history. The French first settled Canada, and it was Champlain, 
a French explorer, who named that country New France. 

In 1679, La Salle, a Frenchman and the boldest explorer known to American history, launched at 
Niagara the first vessel that sailed over the Great Lakes. He pressed his exploration southward, 
and in 1682, after discovering the Mississippi River, planted the banner of France on the banks of 
that stream, later sailing down to its mouth. This extended New France from the Alleghany Moun- 
tains west to the Mississippi. 

It was the custom of the French and other early explorers to claim the ownership of all land drained 
by a river which they had discovered, and thus La Salle's discovery caused the French to lay claim to 
the entire Mississippi Valley. All that territory east of the river was called New France, and that west 
of the river Louisiana in honor of King Louis XIV, then the powerful ruler of France. 



AN IMPORTANT EPOCH 

The year 1689 is one of the most important dates in American history. It marks the end of "Early 
American History", and the beginning of another century which ended in 1789 when George Wash- 
ington became the first president of the L nited States. From this time until 17 13, colonial wars took 
place, and Pennsylvania played an important part in the last one. 

The two Carolinas and Pennsylvania were the youngest of the Rritish colonies. The adult in- 
habitants of these colonies had nearly all been born in Flurope; while the grandsons of the first settlers 
in the older colonies had grown to manhood. 

The success of the French explorers in the Mississippi Valley and in Canada caused them to incite 
tribes of Indians against the English settlements of western Pennsylvania. The French had built a 
fort where Pittsburg now stands, and one near the present site of Erie. The governor of Vuginia, 
wishing to prevent encroachments of the French in the western part of our province, sent a regiment 
of troops under Colonel George Washington, a young man of twenty-one. He moved northward and 
was met by the enemy at a place which was called Fort Necessity. A contest ensued, and it was here 
that George Washington fired the first shot in one of the greatest wars of our history. 



277 



It will thus be seen that the early settlement of York County was made during a series of wars 
on the continent of Europe. The Seven Year's War, which lasted from 1756 to 1763. involved nearly 
every European power. It is known to history as a World War, and since the American colonies paid 
tribute to England at that time, the strife in this contest for the mastery of Europe was carried to 
America. 

This war ended with the triumph of Frederick the Great and the defeat of the French, which di- 
minished the power of Louis XIV of France. England had joined with Prussia, and helped her to 
overthrow the other powers of the continent. Meantime the fertile valleys of Prussia along the Rhine 
had been devastated. Thousands of Germans then immigrated to Pennsylvania. About the same 
time and before the Scotch, Irish and English Quakers came in large numbers to the province of Penn- 
sylvania and prospered here. 

BRADDOCK'S EXPEDITION 

Things were getting so serious in Pennsylvania that General Braddock, a trained British soldier, 
crossed the Atlantic in 1755 and marched from Alexandria, Virginia, toward the present site of Pitts- 
burg for the purpose of driving the French from this fort called Duquesne. He was joined by 2,000 
provincial troops from Pennsylvania and ^ irginia under the command of George Washington, who 
acted as a staff officer under Braddock. 

The EngHsh army of 4,000 men were met by the French and Indians at a place now called Brad- 
dock's Field, a short distance east of Pittsburg. The EngHsh commander did not understand the 
Indian mode of warfare. In a short time, three-fourths of his officers and 700 men were killed, including 
Braddock who was pierced with four bullets, for the Indians of that early date had learned to use the 
musket, and were trained marksmen fighting in ambush. A total defeat was averted only by the skill 
and prowess of Washington. In this contest, four bullets pierced his clothing, but he was unhurt. 

After Braddock's defeat, the Indians began to cross the Alleghany Mountains, and this caused 
consternation in the town and county of York as well as other sections of southern Pennsylvania. In- 
habitants from the Cumberland \'alley and farther west hastened eastward to the town of York where 
they remained until the excitement was over. 

YORK COUNTY MILITARY CO^MPANIES. 

It was now decided by the authorities of the province to erect a chain of twenty-five forts along the 
eastern slope of the mountains from the Delaware River at Easton extending in a southwestern 
direction to the Pennsylvania line at Cumberland, Maryland, for all parts of the northwestern and 
western frontiers were now threatened by incursions from the hostile Indians and a few of the French, 
The organization of militia companies was encouraged. Richard Peters, secretary of the Province of 
Pennsylvania, in 1756, reports the following organized military companies in \ork County: Captain 
Isaac Saddler, Lieutenant Archibald McGrew, Ensign \MIliam Duffield, and sixty private men: Cap- 
tain Hugh Dunwoodie, Lieutenant Charles McMullen, Ensign James Smith and sixty private men Cap- 
tain James Agnew. Lieutenant John Miller, Ensign Samuel Withrow and sixty private men: Captain 
David Hunter, Lieutenant John Correy, Ensign John Barnes and 100 private men: Captain Samuel 
Ciordon, Lieutenant William Smiley, Ensign John Little and 100 private men: Captain Andrew Findley. 
Lieutenant William Gemmill, of Hopewell Township, Ensign Moses Lawson and 106 private men; 
Captain William Gibson. Lieutenant William Thompson, Ensign Casper Little and fifty private men; 
Captain Francis Holton. Lieutenant Joseph Ross, Ensign John McCall and 100 private men. 

Fort Granville, which had been erected near the site of Lewistown. in the Juniata \ alley, was 
guarded by Lieutenant Edward Armstrong and a small band of Pennsylvania soldiers. This fort was

attacked July 22, 1756, when the commander and several of the soldiers were killed and a part of the 
garrison, including some women and children, were taken across the Alleghany Mountains to Fort 
Kittanning, then the headquarters of the Delaware Indians. 

EXCITEMENT IN YORK COUNTY. 

During the crisis of affairs in the province, the cold indifference of the Legi-slative Assembly aroused 
the deepest indignation of the patriotic inhabitants of Pennsylvania. Public meetings had been held 
in York, Lancaster and Berks Counties for the purpose of petitioning the Governor and the Assembly 
to aid them in preparing for an armed resistance. George Stevenson, who had been sent here in 1749 
to take charge of the court records when York became a county seat, wrote letters to Richard Petere, 
at Philadelphia, describing the alarming condition of affairs at York. 

Fort Kittanning was situated on the Alleghany River, about forty miles northwest of Pittsburg, 
where the town of Kittanning now stands. Immediately after Braddock's defeat in 177.5. Hance 
Hamilton, the first sheriff of York County, and one of the original settlers of Marsh Creek, organized a 
company and marched with it to the western frontier of Cumberland County. After the completion 
of Fort Lyttleton, in the present limits of Bedford County. Captain Hamilton commanded the garrison 
at that place of defence. Other companies were then organized for active service by Rev. Thomas 
Barton, the rector of the Episcopal Church at York, Carlisle and York Springs; Rev. Andrew Bay, 
pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Marsh Creek; Dr. David Jameson, physician at York, and Thomas 
Armor, one of the court justices. 

FORBES' EXPEDITION. 

The Provincial soldiers being successful with the affair at Fort Kittanning, it was determined by 
Sir William Pitt, the next year, to organize an expedition for the conquest of the French and Indians 
at Fort Duquesne. General Forbes, a trained soldier from England, and with more sagacity than 
Braddock, was placed in charge of this expedition. 

Forbes had under his command an army of 1,200 Highlanders, 350 royal Americans, and about 5,000 
Provincial soldiers from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, including 2,000 Virginians under the 
command of Colonel George Washington. Many of these troops passed through York. General 
Forbes rendezvoused at Carlisle. The Pennsylvania troops, about 2,000 in number, were under the 
command of Colonel Bouquet, a Swiss patriot who had an experience of several years in European wars . 

The Forbes expedition was a brilliant success, and ended the French and Indian War so far as 
Pennsylvania was concerned. The French were driven from Fort Duquesne down the Ohio River, and 
their Indian allies fled in dismay to the north and west. A new defense was built on the same site 
which was named Fort Pitt in honor of Sir William Pitt, the great English statesman, who had projected 
this expedition. Dr. David Jameson of York was major of the Second Battahon, commanded by Colonel 
James Burd; James Ewing, then living a few miles east of York and who became a brigadier-genereJ 
in the Revolution was adjutant of the 3rd Battalion commanded by Colonel Hugh Mercer, the bosom 
friend of Washington. Archibald McGrew, Robert .McPherson and Thomas Hamilton from York 
County were captains in Mercer's Battalion, That brilliant soldier, Hance Hamilton of York County, 
was major of Armstrong's Battalion.

PART II.— THE REVOLUTION. 

THE inhabitants of York and vicinity after the defeat of the French at Fort Duquesne were never 
endangered by incursions from the Indians. They turned their attention to the arts of peace. 
The Httle town on the Codorus received a new impetus of hfe. Many new houses were built so 
that the population was soon increased to 1,500. But there was trouble ahead for the honest burghers 
of York and the tillers of the soil in the surrounding country and all over the thirteen American colonies 
which had been founded and settled by the authority of the Enghsh Government. It was charged by 
the American colonists that the mother country was enforcing tyrannical laws which encroached upon 
the civil rights of American subjects. What is known to history as the Boston Port Bill caused dis- 
sension from New Hampshire to Georgia. 

Meetings were held in opposition to the laws which were being enforced by the King and Parhament. 
They were held in all centres of population. One of these convened at York in 1774, being presided 
over by Michael Swope, afterward a colonel in the Revolution. At this meeting it was decided by a 
unanimous vote that the inhabitants of York would support their brethren in Philadelphia and other 
parts of the colonies in asking for redress and relief for the distressed condition of the inhabitants of 
Boston. Delegates were appointed to attend the first Provincial Conference at Philadelphia. James 
Smith, of York, attended this conference, and soon after his return home, organized at York in 1774 the 
first military company in America to oppose British oppression and to defend the rights of the colonists. 
The following year Smith was made a colonel of militia for the Province of Pennsylvania, and in 1776 
as a delegate from York signed the Declaration of Independence. 



YORK TROOPS AT BOSTON. 

The tocsin of war was sounded by the speech of Patrick Henry before the Mrginia assembly at 
Richmond, which was soon followed by the attack on the Provincial forces of Massachusetts at Con- 
cord and Lexington. The patriotic ardor of the citizens of York and vicinity had now been aroused 
to the highest pitch when they heard that a great battle had been fought at Bunker Hill. June 
17. 1775. 

Thirteen days after this e\ent a company of soldiers from York under the command of Michael 
Doudel. with Henry Miller and John Clark as lieutenants, began the march to Boston where they ar- 
rived July 25th, being the first troops west of the Hudson and south of Long Island to join the American 
forces near that city. Although tired and worn by their long march of 500 miles, with undaunted 
courage, they offered their services to General \^^ashington immediately after their arri\"al. and asked 
that they be permitted to capture a British transport on the Charles River. 

The commander-in-chief commended them for their patriotism, but thought the proposition inex- 
pedient at that time. A few days later Washington detailed them to capture some British sentinels 
in order that he might learn from them the enemy's purpose in erecting certain earthworks in front of 
the American encampment. This daring feat was accomplished by Captain Doudel's company with 
the loss of one man. Corporal Cruise, a gallant soldier, who lingered for several months in a British 
prison in London. The trained riflemen from York succeeded in kilhng several of the enemy and bring- 
ing prisoners to the headquarters of \\ ashington at Cambridge. 

The "York Rifles" and the "Morgan Rifles" of Mrginia were the first soldiers in history to use the 
rifle. This was a new implement of war to the British soldiers at Boston. Corporal Cruise, who be- 
came a prisoner was taken to England, and for a time kept in the Tower of London dressed in his hunt- 
ing shirt like the rest of his comrades. He was a novelty to the people of London, and the rifle he used 
was an object of special interest to the Engli.sh officers. 




JAMES SMITH, OF YORK. SIGNER OF THE DECI.ARATION^OF 
INDEPENDENCE 



283 



PATRIOTISM AND VALOR OF YORK COUNTY SOLDIERS 

The martial spirit was now rife in the town and county of York, for in the fall of 1775, five battalions 
of militia were organized, commanded respectively by Colonel James Smith of York, Robert McPherson 
of Marsh Creek, Richard McAllister of Hanover, Colonel William Smith of Chanceford, and William 
Rankin of Newberry township. These battalions were under regular drill and discipline for several 
months. Near the close of 1775, one company was selected from each battalion and a regiment of 
"Minute Men" organized, with Richard McAllister, Colonel; Thomas Hartley, Lieutenant-Colonel, 
and David Grier, Major. Soon afterward a part of this command joined the fu'st expedition for the 
conquest of Canada. 

During this year and the remainder of the Revolution, the spirit of war was constantly impressed 
upon the people of York by the passage of troops from the southern states to join Washington's army, 
and often British prisoners were brought here, or escorted to Frederick, Md., Winchester and other 
points in Virginia. 

In this brief story of historic York County, it is impossible to give the details of the part taken by 
the patriotic men of the town and county in the Revolution. Let it suffice to say that they showed 
a valor and patriotism unexcelled in any part of the thirteen original states. In the early part of 1776, 
there were four armed and equipped companies in the town of York, and about .3,000 militia throughout 
the county, then including Adams, ready to march to the front if their services were wanted. Many 
of these soldiers took part in the battles of Brandy wine and Germantown, and in subsequent campaigns 
under Washington. 

Colonel Swope's regiment from York and vicinity won distinction at Long Island and Fort Washing- 
ton ; James Ewing took command of the famous Flying Camp in 1776, and rose to the rank of Brigadier- 
General; Colonel Thomas Hartley, a man of high intellect as well as patriotic valor led his men to vic- 
tory on several fields of battle; General Henry Miller, a bold and dashing soldier, received the commen- 
dation of the commander-in-chief for saving the left wing of the army from defeat at the Battle of 
Princeton; Colonel Richard McAUister, after organizing the milita of York county marched with the 
regiment, which was conspicuous for its bravery at Long Island and at White Plains; Colonel John 
Hay who succeeded him as sub-lieutenant of York County, and Colonel Matthew Dill his associate, also 
won a reputation for bravery in the field; Major John Clark leceived the highest praise for his success 
at Long Island, and at the request of Washington, was placed on the staff of General Greene, next to 
the commander-in-chief, the greatest American soldier of that period; Colonel David Grier, a hero of 
the campaign to Canada received two serious wounds at the famous Rattle of Paoli under General 
Wayne; and Major Joseph Prowell with a battalion of 100 men, led the advance of Sullivan's expedition 
into the Wyoming Valley to drive out the hostile Indians. 

The achievements of these sons of York County and the gallant soldiers who fought under them, 
have added lustre to the pages of American history. They won a record for military achievement 
worthy of being handed down to future generations. 

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

In the meantime Continental Congress was in session at Independence Hall. Philadelphia, with 
delegates from all of the thirteen colonies. In June, 1775, Richard Henry Lee, a delegate from \ irginia 
moved that "these colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states, and they are 
absolved from all allegiance to the Biitish crown and that all political connection between them and 
the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be totally dissolved. " 

This motion was seconded by John Adams, of Massachusetts, and was carried on July 2nd, and the 
Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, then only thirty-three years old, was 
adopted July 1th. 

[2811 




COL. HENRY MILLER OF THE REVOLUTION 




V. S. TREASURY BUILDING AT YORK IN THE REVOLUTION 



285 ] 



A few days later it was signed by 56 delegates with John Hancock, of Massachusetts, president of 
Congress, to first append his signature to this immortal document. James Smith, then a delegate 
from York to Congress, became one of the signers. The news of the adoption of this declaration was 
sent out in every direction by post-riders throughout all the colonies. It was brought to York by James 
Smith and immediately after his arrival, the small statue of George the Third, at the top of the Pro- 
vincial Court House in Center Square, was torn down. The bell, belonging to St. Johns' Episcopal 
Church at York, was then used for the doublf purpose of calling the people together in the Court House 
and ringing for services at the church on North Beaver Street. On this occasion it was rung with glad 
acclaim by direction of James Smith. These incidents aroused the spirit of our forefathers, who 
resolved to continue the struggle until the thirteen states should be freed from the sovereignty of 
Great Britain. 

The Declaration of Independence was thought by everyone to be a bold measure. Now that in- 
dependence was proclaimed, it remained to be seen whether it could be won. Seven years of continous 
war followed and finally in 1781 the last struggle took place at Yorktown, Va., which ended in the 
surrender of Lord Cornwallis and his entire army to Washington. This event practically ended the 
war but the treaty of peace was not signed until 1783. 

YORK, THE NATION'S CAPITAL. 

The defeat of Washington's Army at Long Island and Fort Washington caused him to retreat 
across New Jersey toward Philadelphia, then the capital of the new nation. He won a brilliant vic- 
tory at Trenton, New Jersey, on Christmas night, 1776, and drove the enemy toward New York at the 
battle of Princeton. 

Soon after this event General Howe left New York, came up the Chesapeake Bay and marched 
toward Philadelphia with a trained army of 18,000 men. Washington met him on the banks of the 
Brandy wine a Creek in Chester County, with an army of only 11,000 men. The British were success- 
ful in this contest, and then moved on toward Philadelphia to capture that city. 

Seeing it was necessary for Congress to move with the public documents, the entire body, not ex- 
ceeding forty men, started on horseback toward Bethlehem. They remained there two days, and then 
came to Lancaster where a one-day session of Congress was held in the County Court House. 

In order that Congress might transact the public business with more safety, a resolution was adopted 
to cross the Susquehanna and continue their sessions in the Provincial Court House which stood in 
Center Square, York. John Hancock, then president of Congress, was the only person who traveled 
now in a chaise. The rest all came on horseback, stopping for dinner at the PubHc Inn in the stone house 
standing in Springettsbury township to the south of the turnpike. It is known as the Glatz property, 
and it was the first stone house built west of the Susquehanna in the year 1737. The government 
documents were brought to York under a guard of two regiments of Continental troops. York then 
contained 286 houses and about 1,500 population. 

ARRIVAL OF CONTINENTAL CONGRESS 

Coming up the road from Wright's Ferry on one calm September afternoon of the eventful year of 
1777, were these illustrious men whose acts and deeds during this dark period of the Revolution have 
given lustre to the pages of American history. 

Among this band of patriots whose intelligence and foresight astonished the nations of the world, 
were John Hancock, Samuel Adams and John Adams of Massachusetts: James Duane, William Duer 
and Governeur Morris of New York; Roger Sherman and Charles Marchant of Connecticut: Robert 
Morris, General Roberdeau and James Smith of Pennsylvania; Charles Carroll of Maryland;

Richard Henry Lee, Benjamin Harrison (ancestor of two presidents) and Francis Lightfoot Lee of 
Virginia; Dr. Witherspoon of New Jersey, and Henry Laurens of South Carolina. These men were 
eminent as statesmen, and twenty-six of them the year before had appended their names to that im- 
mortal document, the Declaration of Independence. 

When Congress assembled in York on the first day of October, 1777, in the historic old Court House, 
which stood in Centre Square, it beheld the chief cities of the country in the hands of the enemy, and 
a shattered and dispirited army retreating before a conquering foe. The battle of Brandywine had 
just ended in favor of the British army, whose numbers were nearly double those of the Americans. 
In the meantime. Washington was reinvested by Congress, with extraordinary powers and soon 
afterward took up his winter quarters at Valley Forge. 

Of the members of Continental Congress during the entire period of the Revolution, none was more 
zealous in legislating for the prosecution of the war than Samuel Adams of Massachusetts. He was a 
man of lofty patriotism and unbounded energy. The Enghsh Government blamed John Hancock 
and Samuel Adams more than any others for the origin of the war. and a reward of -525,000 was offered 
for the capture of either of them. Both Hancock and Adams, if ever captured, were to be denied pardon 
for their alleged treason to the mother country. With Adams as the leader of Congress while in York, 
the struggle for liberty was simply a matter of life or death. Success in establishing freedom would 
send him down to posterity, honored by all future generations; failure pointed to the prison cell 
and the igominy of a rebel doomed to the scaffold. Everything seemed dark and gloomy during the 
early days of October, 1777, and some of the members of Congress were almost ready to give up the 
struggle in despair and accept the overtures of peace offered by the British government. 

Washington had not yet loomed up as the dominant personality of the Revolution. About this 
time John Adams made the following entry in his diary: 

"The prospect is chilling on every side, gloomy, dark, melancholy and dispiriting. When and 
where will light come from? Shall we have good news from Europe;' Shall we hear of a blow struck 
by Gates against Burgoyne.^ Is there a possibility that Washington may yet defeat Howe.^ Is there 
a possibility that McDougall and Dickinson shall destroy the British detachment in New Jersey.^ If 
Philadelphia is lost, is the cause of Independence lost.^" 

The little band of patriots which assembled daily in the Court House in York, had increased its 
membership by the arrival of newly elected delegates in October. It sat with closed doors. None 
but the members of Congress and occasionally a few government officials were allowed to hear the 
debates on the momentous questions that engaged their attention. 

In a building at the northeast corner of George Street and Centre Square. Michael Hillegas. Treas- 
urer of the L'nited States, kept the funds of the government. At the southeast corner of South George 
Street and Mason Alley was the law office of James Smith. This was used by John Adams and other 
members of the Board of War, similar to the War Department of the present day. 

The president of Congress was John Hancock, of .Massachusetts, who was then the wealthiest man 
in the L^nited States. He rented the largest house obtainable in York, and some of the other members 
lodged at his residence. As the executive head of the nation he lived in considerable style, and his 
household expenses were paid by the government. All the other members were required to pay their 
own expenses, and received a small annual salary paid by the States they represented. Early in 
November John Hancock resigned as President of Congress, and Henry Laurens of South Carolina 
was chosen his successor.

SAMUEL ADAMS' GREAT SPEECH 

The affairs of the new-born nation for a time were controlled by a few men, who met regularly in 
a caucus at the home of General Roberdeau of Pennsylvania, who lived in a rented house nearly 
opposite Christ Lutheran Church on South George Street. Many of the leaders in Congress, including 
Henry Laurens, Benjamin Harrison, Dr. Witherspoon, Richard Henry Lee, Elbridge Gerry and 
John and Samuel Adams lodged in this house. It was here on one October night of 1777 that Samuel 
Adams called a caucus. After obtaining the views of the different members, some of whom were very 
despondent. Samuel Adams rose and delivered one of the most eloquent and impressive speeches in 
American history, as follows: 

"Gentlemen: Your spirits seem oppressed with the weight of public calamities, and your sadness 
of countenance reveals your disquietude. A patriot may grieve at the disasters of his country, but 
he will never despair of the commonwealth. Our affairs are said to be desperate, but we are not 
without hope and not without courage. The eyes of the people of this country are upon us here, and 
the tone of their feeling is regulated by ours. If we as delegates in Congress give up in despair, and 
grow desperate, public confidence will be destroyed and American liberty will be no more. 

"But we are not driven to such straits. Though fortune has been unpropitious. our conditions 
are not desperate: our burdens though grievous, can still be borne; our losses, though great, can be 
retrieved. Through the darkness that shrouds our prosperity, the ark of safety is visible. Despond- 
ency, gentlemen, becomes not the dignity of our cause, nor the character of the nation's representatives 
in Congress. Let us then be aroused and evince a spirit of patriotism that shall inspire the people with 
confidence in us, in themselves and in the cause of our country. Let us show a spirit that will induce 
us to persevere in this struggle, until our rights shall be established and our liberty secured. 

"We have proclaimed to the world our determination to die free men, rather than live slaves: we 
have appealed to heaven for the justice of our cause and in the God of battles have we placed our 
trust. We have looked to Providence for help and protection in the past ; we must appeal to the same 
source in the future, for the Almighty Powers from above will sustain us in this struggle for inde- 
pendence. 

"There have been times since the opening of this war when we were reduced almost to distress, 
but the great arm of Omnipotence has raised us up. Let us still rely for assistance upon Him who is 
mighty to save. We shall not be abandoned by the powers above so long as we can act worthy of 
aid and protection. The darkest hour is just before the dawn. Good news may soon reach us from 
the arm\ and from across the sea." 



BURGOYNE'S SURRENDER 

It was late in October, 1777. and not long after Samuel Adams delivered his great speech at York, 
that news was brought here of the surrender of Sir John Burgoyne, with an army of 6.000 English 
and Hessian soldiers at Saratoga. Gates, commanding the American forces, had out-generaled him 
and Burgoyne was compelled to throw down his arms. His entire force was marched to Boston and 
kept there as prisoners of war for one year. Burgoyne bought his freedom by paying $40,000 in gold, 
with the understanding that this money should be used to feed and clothe his troops. He then sailed 
to England, was elected to Parliament, and there made a strong speech opposing a continuation of 
the war against the United States. 

News from Saratoga brought good cheer to Congress at York, \^'ashington at ^'alley Forge and 
every section of the thirteen states. This battle was one of the most decisive in all history and was 
a turning point in the struggle of our forefathers for liberty. 

Soon after this event. General Gates came to York and became president of the Board of War, 

[290 1 



succeeding John Adams, who had been sent to France to aid Benjamin Fianiilin in securing from the 
French government a recognition of the Repubhc of the United States. 

The attempt of Burgoyne to march down the Hudson and join the British army, then occupying 
New York, proved to be a failure. His object had been to cut off the New England States from the 
South and prevent communications between the two sections. It was the failure of this attempt 
that added glory to the American Armies throughout all the great powers in Europe and gave great 
prestige to the Americans. 

IMPORTANT TRANSACTIONS OF CONGRESS 

Congress had passed while in session at York the Articles of Confederation which, when adopted 
by the sufficient number of states, made the Declaration of Independence a reality; received the news 
of the great and decisive battle of Saratoga; commissioned Lafayette a major-general in the army; 
received Baron Steuben, the military chieftain from the Court of Frederick the Great, made him a 
major-general and sent him to the headquarters of the army to drill the American troops in the im- 
proved tactics of that day; received the news from Benjamin Franklin at Paris that the King of France 
and his country had agreed to help us in our struggle for Independence; received the first of several 
contributions of money from the French Government to carry on the war and received the news of 
the arrival of the first French troops and fleet that came to our assistance. These are a few, but not 
all, of the important transactions of Congress while in session at York. 

At no other place during the Revolution, except Philadelphia, was there any legislation by Con- 
tinental Congress in any way comparable to that transacted while in session at York. It is a fact, 
however, that sessions of this body were held for one day in Lancaster, Pa. ; a short time at Princeton, 
N. J. ; about two months in Baltimore and a brief period at Annapolis, Md. At none of these places 
do the journals of Congress record the passage of any legislation or the transaction of any business 
for the prosecution of the war in any degree commensurate with that done at York during nine months 
of the years 1777 and 1778. 

BATTLE OF FORT WASHINGTON 

The most serious loss of York County troops during the Revolution was at the battle of Fort 
Washington, which took place in the northern part of what is now New York City. Colonel Robert 
Magaw of CarHsle, with about .3,500 troops from Pennsylvania, was assigned the important duty of 
defending this fort. It was attacked in the fall of 1776 by a large force of English and Hessian troops. 

Colonel Michael Swope of York, then in command of the First Regiment of the Flying Camp, was 
ordered by Magaw to defend the approaches to the fort. Terms of surrender were offered by the 
enemy, but Swope refused. A furious contest ensued when the gallant colonel and 400 of his York 
County soldiers were killed, wounded or became prisoners of war. 

A part of the Second Regiment of the Flying Camp commanded by Colonel McAllister of Hanover, 
took part in this engagement, and the remainder of his regiment under Major Clark, engaged the 
Rritish on Staten Island where the first Hessian prisoners of war were captured. 

At Fort Washington the Rritish outnumbered the Americans three to one, and the captured men 
were held in New York prisons for nearly two years. Among them was Colonel Swope, whose wife 
kept the Swope Inn on West Market Street, York, where John Hancock, president of Congress, was 
entertained while in York.

BRITISH LEAVE PHILADELPHIA 

Congress remained in session in York for nine months, and then returned to Philadelphia. In the 
meantime. General Howe resigned his command of Philadelphia and returned to England. Sir Henry 
Clinton succeeded him. and on June 18. 1778. he evacuated the city and began the march toward 
New York. 

Washington remained at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78 while Congress was at York. 
There is no record that he ever came here during that winter. I nfortunately, many members of 
Congress, then composed of forty delegates, were opposed to \\'ashington because he was defeated at 
Brandywine and Germantown. The strong men of Congress, however, stood by him. 

What ife known as the Conway Cabal, a conspiracy to remov? him from command of the army and 
place Gates in his stead, collapsed at a banquet given to Lafayette at the home of Gates in York in 
February. 1778. At this banquet, Lafayette rose from his chair and offered a toast in support of the 
commander-in-chief, and that ended the controversy. 

WASHINGTON LEAVES VALLEY FORGE 

When Washington heard the British had left Philadelphia, after receiving recruits to his army, he 
broke camp at \'alley Forge, crossed the Delaware at Trenton, and began pursuit of the British army 
on June 21st, intending to strike them whenever a good opportunity was afforded. His own troops were 
then in splendid trim, having received careful drill and discipline during the winter encampment at 
Valley Forge, 

BATTLE OF MONMOUTH 

The two armies met at INIonmouth, N. J., in August, 1778, where a terrible battle took place. 
General Washington displayed remarkable courage and skill in this engagement, and his success gained 
for him prestige throughout Europe as a great military commander. General Greene, next to W ashing- 
ton the ablest soldier of the Revolution, was present. Knox commanded the artillery, and the famous 
Wayne, who distinguished himself with his Pennsylvania troops at Brandywine, (iermantown and 
PaoH, fought with great gallantry in this battle. 

At a time when General Charles Lee disappointed the commander-in-chief. Washington rode 
forward into the thickest of the fight, and for more than an hour the bullets whizzed around him. He 
turned the tide of the contest, won the battle and added laurels to American arms. This battle in- 
creased the power and influence of the commander-in-chief. From that time forth he was recognized 
as one of the greatest soldiers of any age. 

In the battle of Monmouth the Seventh Pennsylvania Line, formerly commanded by Colonel 
Grier of York, distinguished itself for valor. It was largely composed of Y ork County troops. Colonel 
Grier had been wounded in the battle of Paoli the year before, and his regiment at Monmouth was 
commanded by Colonel Irvine. Henry Miller who left \ork as a lieutenant for Boston in 1775. was 
major of the First Pennsylvania Regiment at IMonmouth. His command occupied the extreme left. 
At a certain time in the battle, Washington ordered this regiment forward. It was led by MiUer who, 
for his gallantry in action, was promoted to the rank of colonel by Washington in the field. In this 
regiment also were three companies of York County troops. 

j\Iajor John Clark of York, who also marched to Boston in 1 775. acted as chief of scouts to Washing- 
ton's army while at ^ alley Forge. For his courage and abihty, Clark was made chief of staff for General 
Greene at Monmouth, For his gallantry there, Washington recommended him to Congress for pro- 
motion. His home at York was at the Southwest corner of Market and Beaver Streets, where he Uved 
until the time of his death in 1817, 

[292 1 



THE END OF THE WAR 

After the defeat of the British in the Battle of Monmouth, the seat of war was transferred to the 
South. An army under Lord CornwaUis engaged in several battles in South Carolina. He then be- 
gan a march northward in pursuit of General Greene. The two armies met at the present site of 
Greensboro, N. C, where a drawn battle took place. Meantime, Washington began to move his army 
southward. 

Lafayette, with 3,000 men, crossed the lower end of York County and halted at Fredericksburg, 
Va. Meantime, General Anthony Wayne with a brigade of Pennsylvania troops had encamped at 
York for two months with his headquarters in a building now standing at the northwest corner of Market 
and Beaver Streets. He recruited his brigade and started from York on his march southward and 
joined Lafayette at Fredericksburg. These two commands moved southwardand joined Washington 
at Yorktown, Va. 

A severe battle followed with Lord CornwaUis. Washington then laid siege to Yorktown, and in 
the meantime a French fleet and an army of 4,000 men landed at the mouth of the James River. The 
arrival of these French troops and fleet prevented CornwaUis from escaping, and in October. 1781, 
he surrendered his army to Washington. The British commander feigned sickness and sent a sub- 
ordinate with his sword. Washington delegated Lafayette to receive the sword. This was the last 
engagement of the war of the Revolution. The treaty of peace, however, was not signed until 1783. 

During the Revolution on two occasions five battafions of York County militia joined the army. 
There were nearly 2,000 men from this county in the Continental Line which afterwards corresponded 
to the regular army of the United States. In all out of a population of 25,000, York County, including 
Adams, furnished at least 5,000 men who served during a part of the war in the American army. 

Colonel Thomas Hartley who commanded a brigade at the battles of Brandywine, Paoli and Ger- 
mantown and afterwards a regiment against the Indians of our northern frontier, later served twelve 
years as the first representative from York County in Congress. In a public speech before the House 
of Representatives, Colonel Hartley asserted that York County furnished more soldiers to the army 
in our struggle for liberty than any other section with an equal population in the thirteen states. 



PART III.— WAR OF 1812 AND 1815 

THE second war of the United States with Great Britain began in 1812. England was never 
quite satisfied with the result of the Revolution which created on this continent a new nation 
of thirteen states out of the thirteen original British colonies. This war grew out of a series 
of wrongs inflicted by the English government upon the American people. The chief difficulty between 
the two countries was the fact that Great Britian claimed the light to search American vessels for 
supposed British deserters and their impressment into the British service. England also wanted to 
prohibit American commerce with France with which she was then at war. 

During the twenty years before 1812 nearly afl of Europe had been engaged in war brought about 
by Napoleon Bonaparte, and this contention finally involved the United States. The American people 
demanded free trade with foreign countries, and the rights of our sailors on the high seas. This was 
denied by the mother country, who really captured on our vessels some American sailors claiming they 
were British subjects. These outrages were so great that Congress insisted upon their surrender of 
the British claim of search. The government of the LTnited States refused to negotiate on the 
subject. An embargo was laid upon all ships in American ports, and war was declared by Congress 
against Great Britain. This war lasted two and one-half years and involved every section including 
our prosperous County of York. 

[293 1 



In May 1812, President .Madison issued a call for 100,000 troops. On this call the quota from 
Pennsylvania was 14.000. Simon Snyder who in his boyhood had lived in \ ork was then the Governor 
of Pennsylvania. He issued an order for the organization of the militia. The sentiment in York 
County and throughout the country was almost unanimous for war. 

The volunteer soldiery from York as well as the militia quickly responded to the call for troops. 
Such was the enthusiasm of the hour that in response to the governor's call, three times as many 
troops tendered their services as were required. \t this time there resided in York County nearly 400 
soldiers who had fought in the Revolution, and many of them volunteered their services to defend their 
country. 

The early part of this war took place along the Canada frontier, extending from New York west to 
Detroit. The British menaced this region with a strong land force. 

Meanwhile in 1813 every naval battle on the ocean was a victory for the Americans. Within 
six months the British had lost six large war vessels on the Atlantic and had taken none of ours. 

Our ships were well built and the American sailors were more accurate in their fire than the British, 
and their victories gave prestige to our navies. During the previous ten years England had declared 
herself mistress of the seas. 

The British land forces were defeated in Northern New York and their fleet on Lake Champlain. 

General Scott crossed into Canada with a brave army and won the famous battles of Chippewa 
Emd Lundy's Lane. This was encouraging news and heralded as glad tidings all over the country. 
About sixty York County soldiers served under Scott at these battles, .\fter the defeat of their land 
forces along the northern frontier, the British army transferred the seat of war to the South. 

BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE 

On September 10, 1813, Commodore Barclay of the English navy, with a fleet of six vessels and 
sixty-three guns attacked Commodore Oliver H. Perry with the same number of vessels and guns. The 
American fleet was built at the present site of Erie, and Perry never had fought a naval battle before. 
His success was remarkable and his victory won additional honors for .\merican seamen. 

Perry's flagship, named The Lawrence, had a blue pennon at her masthead containing the words 
"Don't give up the ship." He fought gallantly on the Lawrence until only eight of the crew and 
himself were alive. 

The vessels contested with one and another at close quarters side by side, firing with terrific force. 
Perry with his flag in hand passed in an open boat to the Niagara in the midst of the firing, just before 
the flagship was sunk. He then hoisted his flag on the Niagara and in a splendid charge broke the 
British line, capturing their whole fleet. This event took place on Lake Erie a short distance west of 
Cleveland, Ohio. 

Perry's dispatch to General Harrison announcing his victory was brief and telUng; "We have met 
the enemy and they are ours!" It was Perry who turned the scales of the war. His victory on the 
Lake enabled Harrison with his land force to enter Canada where he utterly defeated General Proctor 
with the British force and Tecumseh the brave Indian chief who with many warriors had allied himself 
with the enemy. 

Captain ElUott. who commanded the Niagara at the battle of Lake Erie, was born at Frederick. Md. 
He was married to a daughter of General Jacob Spangler of York. His wife left \ ork soon after Perry 
won his victory, and met her husband at Erie, Pa. Elliott, for his achievement, was promoted to the 
rank of Commodore in the U. S. Navy. He died at Boston in 181.5 while in command of that port. 
Mrs. Elliott spent the last thirty years of her life at York, the home of her young womanhood. She 
died here at an advanced age in 1879. 

Midshipman Laub of York, enhsted in the navy in 1810, and took part in several battles on the 

[294] 



ocean during the early part of this war. He was killed on the Niagara by a British cannon ball a few 
minutes before Perry left the Lawrence for the Niagara, and was buried with naval honors near Toledo, 
Ohio. In recognition of his valor, Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the Navy during the World War, 
ordered a Destroyer, one of the largest vessels of that type of the American Navy, to be named "The 
Laub," in honor of the gallant sailor of York who bravely died in defense of his country. The vessel 
was built and launched at the Boston shipyards in 1918. 

ATTACK WASHINGTON AND BALTIMORE 

In March, 1814, Napoleon was dethroned, and England was able to send more troops to 
America. In August of the same year General Ross with an army of 4,500 men and a fleet of forty 
vessels commanded by Admiral Cockburn, landed near Washington, defeated a small body of Americans 
defending the city, and burned the White House, National Capitol and all other public buildings 
except the Patent Office. This caused great excitement in southern Pennsylvania. The light in the 
sky caused by the burning buildings in Washington was seen during the night at York. 

Ross and the fleet then sailed down the Potomac and up the Chesapeake, landing at North Point, 
fourteen miles south of Baltimore. 

PENNSYLVANIA TO THE RESCUE 

Meantime Governor Snyder ordered the militia to rendezvous at Marcus Hook on the Delaware 
Bay and at York for the purpose of making preparations to meet and drive back the invading foe. 
About 6.000 men from the southern counties of the state came to York and encamped on the Public 
Common for drill and disciphne. These troops were mustered into service for six months or during 
the war. The York troops were formed into one division under command of General Watson. This 
body was composed of two brigades, commanded respectively by General Forster and Adams. They 
arrived here September 5. At the same time 1,000 militia encamped at Hanover. 

When it was known that the pubhc buildings at Washington were burned and the British were 
about to attack Baltimore, the York volunteers, a company of 60 men under Captain M. H. Spangler; 
two companies commanded respectively by Captains Metzgor and Bair of Hanover ; a company from 
Warrington under Captain McClellan; a Lower Chanceford company under Captain Colvin, and one 
from Peach Bottom under Captain Ajmos marched toward Bal timbre. The York and the Hanover 
companies arrived in that city in time to take part in the battle of North Point. 

A large force of volunteers and militia from Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania were ready to 
defend the city. In a few hours the British were defeated and General Ross killed in the battle at 
North Point. On September 16th, the entire fleet and infantry boarded the British vessels in the 
harbor of Baltimore and disappeared down the bay, never again to cause any disturbance to the 
country. They sailed to England. 

Meantime Forster's brigade, which encamped at York, reached Baltimore, September 19th. Their 
services being no longer needed, they returned to York. The entire force which encamped here was 
discharged from the service. 

The success of the battle of North Point was triumphant, and it was the last engagement of im- 
portance except the battle of New Orleans. 

During the bombardment of Fort McHenry, near Baltimore, Francis Scott Key, born near Taney- 
town, a young poet and lawyer of Washington, became a prisoner of war on a British vessel. He was 
finally released by authority of Admiral Cockburn, and returned to his own vessel. 

It was during the awe-inspiring scenes of the bombardment of the midnight hour that Key began 

[ 295 ] 



to write the "Star Spangled Banner", now the national air of America. When he arrived in 
Baltimore he completed the poem and gave it to Captain Benjamin Eades of the 27th Maryland 
Regiment. Two days later, with a copy just printed. Captain Eades hastened to the old tavern next 
to the Holliday Street Theatre where actors were accustomed to assemble. The verses were first 
read aloud by the printer, and then in answer to a call from the audience, Ferdinand Durang sang the 
words for the first time. They had just been put to music. 

One year later Durang and his troupe played in a hall on East Market Street near Queen, and there 
for the first time this national air was sung in York. 

TREATY OF PEACE 

The American victories on land and sea had again proven that American soldiers and sailors could 
compete for mastery with British veterans. The final victory of Andrew Jackson at New Orleans, 
January 8, 1815, ended the wai-. With an army of 5000 volunteers and miUtia, Jackson defeated Lord 
Pakenham with 12,000 British veterans attempting to capture the city. In this battle Pakenham was 
killed, and the entire British loss was 2,600 men. Jackson's loss was only eight killed and thirteen 
wounded. This event made him the greatest hero then living in America. 

This occurred fifteen days after the treaty of peace had been signed at Ghent. Belgium, by the 
English and American commissioners appointed to sign the treaty. The American commissioners 
were Henry Clay of Kentucky, James A. Bayard of Delaware, and Robert R. Livingston of New York. 
The telegraph was not then in use, and Jackson did not know of the treaty. 




WKSTERN ENTHANCK TO YORK

PART IV.— THE MEXICAN WAR 

WHAT is now the state of Texas orginally belonged to Mexico, but owing to dissension, Texas 
declared herself independent and organized a republic of her own. Her flag had one star, and 
Texas became known as the "Lone Star State." 

The annexation of Texas in 18 15, resulted in a war between the United States and Mexico. After 
her annexation a dispute arose between Mexico and Texas about the boundary line. Texas claimed 
that her territory extended to the Rio tJrande River, while Mexico insisted that the Nueces River was 
the true division line. President Polk sent an envoy to Mexico, but that government refused him a 
hearing. 

Meanwhile General Zachary Taylor, with a small body of troops had been ordered to Corpus 
Christi, on the borders of the disputed territory, and a little later to advance to Fort Brown on the 
Rio Grande. The Mexicans looked upon this as an invasion of their country and ordered a body of 
troops across the river. Soon after followed the battles of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma in which 
the Americans were victorious, and the Mexican War was begun. This was in April. 1846. Polk sent 
a message to Congress in which he said, "War exists, notwithstanding all our efforts to avoid it — exists 
by the act of Mexico herself. Mexico has passed the boundary of the United States, has invaded our 
territory and shed American blood upon American soil." 

Congress responded to the President's message by declaring that war existed "by the act of Mexico," 
and authorized a call for 50,000 volunteers, and appropiated $10,000,000 to meet the ex-penses. From 
most of the country the call for volunteers was answered with promptness. 

Immediately after President Polk had issued a proclamation announcing that the United States 
had declared war against Mexico, the military spirit of the people of the borough and county of York 
was again aroused as it had been during previous wars. Two volunteer companies in the borough were 
then under excellent drill and discipline. These were the Washington Artillerists commanded by 
Captain Robert Bruce, and the York Rifles, by Captain George Hay. The York companies and the 
United Blues of Hanover, Captain A. W. Eichelberger, and the Carroll Guards of Dillsburg, Captain 
Totten, offered their services to the United States Government. This occurred in May, 1846. 

CALL FOR TROOPS 

There was no call for troops from Pennsylvania until November 16th of that year when President 
Polk asked for one regiment from this state. In response to the call. Governor Shunk ordered the 
uniformed military companies of the state to rendezvous at Pittsburg. In a short time fourteen 
companies proceeded to that city. Only ten could be accepted to form a regiment. Six of these came 
from Philadelphia, two from Pittsburg, one from Pottsville and one from Wilkes-Barre. 

Although the York County companies were not accepted in a body, nine young men from York 
joined the Monroe Guards, one of the Philadelphia companies. The names of these men were Thomas 
A. Ziegle, who was made a sergeant: Peter Ahl. Jr.. Daniel Craver. Albertus Welsh, Jacob Danner, 
Samuel Stair, William Enrich and Robert Patterson. Edward Haviland, afterward a well known 
architect of York, and R. M. Russell of Hanover, who during the Civil War became lieutenant-colonel 
of the Ninth Pennsylvania Cavalry, also served in this regiment. 

FIRST PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT 

The ten companies which rendezvoused at Pittsburg were organized into the First Pennsylvania 
Regiment on December 15, 1846, with Francis M. Wyncoop, colonel; Samuel Black, lieutenant-colonel. 
The regiment soon after proceeded to the front and joined the army under General Scott at Vera Cruz 
before he began his triumphant march to the Mexican capital. 

[297 1 




DL IRO\I\G WELDON R\ILRO\D NL^R RICHMOND \\ 



The first call for troops from Pennsylvania was answered by sufficient companies to form six regi- 
ments. Only one regiment was wanted from Pennsylvania at that time. Late In December, 1816, 
the president asked for another regiment from this state. Pittsburg had been the place of rendezvous 
for a large part of the American troops in the War of 1812. At the same city the Pennsylvania regiments 
which went to Mexico, were organized. 

SECOND PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT 

January 5, 1847, the Second Pennsylvania Regiment was mustered into the service. The com- 
panies forming this regiment came from different parts of the State. Company C, known as 
the Cameron Guards, had been organized at Harrisburg by Captain William A. Small. There 
were a number of York County men enlisted in this company, including Samuel Roller, Jacob Snyder 
and John Walters. Immediately after its organization was completed, the Second Regiment under 
command of Colonel Roberts left Pittsburg for New Orleans, going there by steamboat down the Ohio 
and Mississippi rivers. 

TAYLOR'S VICTORIES 

The troops encamped on the historic battlefield where the American Army under General 
Jackson defeated the Rritish forces on the 8th of January, 1815. The regiment had a stormy passage 
across the Gulf of Mexico, landed at ^'era Cruz, reaching there on the evening of the capture and sur- 
render of the fortress March 29, 1847. General Taylor, commanding the army in the northern part 
of Mexico, had already triumphed over the enemy in four important battles. 

The government had now determined that an army of about 20,000 men should march from Vera 
Cruz through the valley and over the mountains to the city of Mexico. There was one great difficulty 
to surmount. Many of the American troops could not endure the climate, and as a result of this, a 
large number took sick. Some of them died in hospitals of fever, while others took the smallpox. 
Early in the year 1847, the two Pennsylvania regiments were placed in the Second Division commanded 
by General Worth. 

SCOTTS MARCH TO MEXICO 

General Taylor having conquered the Mexicans along the Rio Grande River, a portion of his army 
was now sent to General Scott. On March 29th five thousand Mexican troops surrendered to General 
Scott at ^'era Cruz, and on April 8th he began his march toward the Mexican capital. 

On the 18th of April he defeated Santa Anna, commanding an army of 12,000 men at the mountain 
pass of Cerro Gordo, capturing five generals, ,3,000 men, 4,500 stands of arms and 4.3 cannon, and killing 
and wounding more than 1,000 men, with a loss of less than 500 out of 8,500 Americans engaged in 
the battle. Scott paroled the prisoners, and the next day advanced to Jalapa which he captured 
April 19th. He continued his march to Puebla which he occupied May 15th. 

At this place General Scott remained for drill and discipline of his army and reinforcements until 
August 7th. On that day he advanced on the city of Mexico, and soon after attacked and captured 
Contreras and Cherubusco. An armistice was now agreed upon between the contending armies, during 
which time the American commissioner failed to negotiate a treaty of peace with the Mexicans. 

HIS ARMY VICTORIOUS 

Operations were resumed to the southwest of the city, defended by 14,000 Mexicans occupying 
Molino del Rey, and General Worth's loss was in storming Molino del Rey before the attack on the 
wooded and strongly fortified eminence of Chapultepec. On September 8th, General Worth with

3,500 men attacked Molino del Rey, capturing much material and more than 800 prisoners, but losing 
one-fourth of his command, including 58 officers. On the 13th, Chapultepec was stormed and carried, 
and on the morning of the 14th, Scott's army marched into the city and occupied the national 
palace. 

END OF THE WAR 

And thus ended the war with Mexico. Within six months General Scott had stormed the strongest 
places in the country, won battles against armies double, treble and even quadruple his own, and 
marched without a single reverse from \'era Cruz to Mexico. He had lost fewer men, made fewer 
mistakes, and caused less devastation in proportion to his victories than any invading general of former 
times. When the Duke of Wellington was asked by a great soldier what he thought of Scott's Mexican 
campaign, his reply was, "It was a war of miracles!" 

The treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was concluded February 2, 1848. New Mexico and Upper 
California were ceded to the United States, and the western boundary of Texas was fixed at the Rio 
Grande del Norte. In return the United States agreed to pay fifteen millions dollars, and to assume 
the debts due American citizens by the Mexican government to the amount of three million five hundred 
thousand dollars. The war cost the United States about twenty-five thousand men (most of whom 
had died by disease) and one hundred and sixty million dollars. 

YORK COUNTY SOLDIERS 

Resides those mentioned as having enlisted from York County to serve in the Mexican War, were 
the following who served in the diiferent commands: Emanuel Rates, James H. Ross, Jacob Patterson, 
George Johnston, George Smith, William Tinner, William Fray, David Harp, Samuel Semons, John 
Fields, Henry Stair, Edward Lay, Alexander McPherson, Lieutenant Theodore D. Cochran, John 
Leaman, Colonel R. M. Russell, William Rair, etc. 

Most of the volunteer soldiers from York County who served in the Mexican War were in the army 
of General Scott. They took part in the battles of his brilliant campaign. William Eurick was killed 
at the siege of Pueblo. 

Jacob Danner died of sickness. After being discharged, five of their comrades each contributed 
ten dollars for the purpose of bringing the remains of the deceased soldiers to York for burial, where 
they were interred with military honors. Jacob Snyder and John Walters from York County, who 
served in Company C, Second Pennsylvania Regiment, died of fever in the hospital at Pueblo. 

Colonel Albert C. Ramsey, a native of York County and a member of the bar. commanded the 
Eleventh Infantry, in the Mexican War. There were some York County soldiers in his regiment 
which distinguished itself in the battle of ]\Iolino del Rey. George Johnston, of York, was killed in 
this battle. Weirich Pentz, Colonel Rrough and David Hays served in Ohio regiments. 

Theodore D. Cochran, one of the editors of the York Republican, was first lieutenant of a company 
of cavalry connected with the Eleventh United States Infantry. His command did valiant service in 
the campaign under General Scott. During the Civil War, he commanded a company in the Sixteenth 
Pennsylvania Regiment. 

REGULAR ARMY OFFICERS 

General William R. Franklin a native of York and a graduate of West Point, served as a topographi- 
cal engineer under General Taylor. Later he served under Scott on the march to Mexico, and com- 
manded two divisions in the army of the Potomac during the Civil War. His brother Samuel R.

Franklin, who became a rear admiral, was then a Lieutenant on the frigate America of the United 
States fleet at Vera Cruz. 

Horatio Gates Gibson of York, served as a second lieutenant in the Third Artillery in Scott's army. 
He became a brigadier-general during the Civil War. His brother William Gibson served on the 
gunboat Reefer in the Gulf of Mexico. George P. Welsh of York a lieutenant in the navy was present 
at the bombardment of ^'era Cruz, and later served on the Pacific Coast. 

Granville 0. Haller of York, was First lieutenant of Company C, United States Infantry. General 
Grant, of the Civil War, was a captain in the same regiment and placed a mountain howitzer in a 
church steeple overlooking Mexico, and fired solid shot into the Grand Plaza of the city. For this 
bravery Generals Scott and Worth praised Captain Grant before the whole army. 

Captain Richard E. Cochran of the regular army was killed while leading his company at the battle 
of Rescaca de la Palma under Taylor in 1846. 

Jacob Stager who died in April 191 7, at the age of eighty-six was the last surviving soldier of York 
County in the Mexican War. He enlisted as a marine and served on the Cumberland, flagship of 
Admiral Conner who commanded the I nited States fleet which stormed and captured Vera Cruz in 1847. 

WELCOMED HOME 

An enthusiastic reception was given to the Mexican soldiers on their return to New York, July 
31, 1848. When the news arrived that these veterans had reached Baltimore, a committee of York 
citizens went down to meet them and escort them home. The soldiers were accompanied by Captain 
William F. Small, of Hairisburg, under whose command some of them had served in the war. 

A procession had been formed in Center Square with Major George Hay as chief marshall. In the 
line of march were three local military companies, the Independent Blues, the Washington Greys 
and Pennsylvania Guards. The procession moved up George Street to Centre Square and then pro- 
ceeded to a position in front of the Court House. The military companies were drawn up in line 
facing the Court House steps. At this juncture, James Buchanan, of Lancaster, who afterward be- 
came President of the United States, addressed the veterans of the Mexican War and paid tribute to 
the fine military appearance of the local companies. Speeches, on behalf of the returning soldiers, 
were made by Sergeant Thomas A. Ziegle and Captain W. F. Small. 

PART V.-THE CIVIL WAR 

The war for the preservation of the LTnion began in 1861. It originated from the difference of 
opinion between two sections of our country on slavery and the individual rights of states. The 
Southern States had kept up the institution of slavery from the time of their first settlements. Slavery 
had existed in the Northern States even after the revolution, but long before the Civil War was gather- 
ing force, every state north of Mason and Dixon's line had abolished it. 

The south advocated the independent rights of States, supporting the claim that any state could 
withdraw from the LInion, by its inherit rights. Long and earnest were the discussions on these subjects 
in the halls of Congress. 

Daniel Webster of Massachusetts, the ablest orator of his time and the great expounder of the 
constitution, opposed the extension of slavery, and claimed that no state by its own will could secede 
from the Union. His eloquent words in the L'nited States Senate, "Not liberty first and union after- 
ward, but liberty and union now and forever, one and inseparable," were echoed and re-echoed through- 
out the northern States until the opening of the war. It was this sentiment that stirred up the 
patriotism of the northern people and caused the noble defense of the Union in the great war which 
lasted four long years.

COURT OF HONOR. CENTER SQUARE, YORK. PA., AT SESQUE-CEN'TEN'N'IAL 



301 



For a period of fifty years the United States Senate and the affairs of the government had been 
controlled by the statesmen of the South. The crisis in public affairs came after the passage of the 
Kansas-Nebraska Bill, leaving to the voters of the territory of Kansas to decide whether it should 
be admitted as a slave or a free state. This doctrine became known to American history as "Squatter 
Sovereignty." The great contest, in 1858, in Illinois between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. 
Douglas for the control of the State Legislature and the election of a United States Senator brought 
forth Mr. Lincoln as the candidate of the Republican party for President of the United States. 

After Lincoln's election in November, 1860, the affairs of the Government were no longer in control 
of the southern statesmen. South Carolina seceded from the Union December 20, 1860, and six 
other southern states followed her example. At first there was a disposition among some northern 
people to give consent to the secession of these states, and at this time Horace Greeley published in 
the "New York Tribune" his famous editorial, "Wayward Sisters go in Peace." This sentiment 
did not prevail. President Lincoln refused to recognize the right of secession and prepared to defend 
the Union. 

The Confederate Government was organized at Montgomery, Alabama, on February 4, 186L by 
the election of Jefferson Davis, of Mississippi, President, and Alexander H. Stephens, of Georgia, 
vice-President. This was a temporary organization until the Confederate capital had been removed 
to Richmond in February. 1862. Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated President of the Linited States 
on March 4, 1861. His inaugural address is one of the masterpieces of American literature. It 
intended to pacify the South, but the sentiment of secession had spread over that region like a tornado. 
Maryland and Kentucky were still in doubt but they were saved to the LJnion. 

Before the inauguration of Lincoln all the National forts in the seceded states, except Sumter at 
Charleston, South Carolina, and Pickens at Pensacola, Florida, had been surrendered to the state 
authorities. At this period only seven states had seceded, but others threatened to go if the Federal 
authorities used force to compel the return of those states to the Union. 

FORT SUMTER 

On April 8th, President Lincoln stated in a public document that Fort Sumter would be provisioned 
by force, if necessary, orders having been given to send a fleet to its support. It was then garrisoned 
by Major Robert Anderson, commanding eighty Federal troops. On April 12th, before the fleet could 
reach its destination a battery had been planted along the shores of Charleston Harbor by the con- 
federates and fired upon Fort Sumter. Major Anderson replied to this fire and the contest con- 
tinued for twenty-four hours without the loss of life. After having exhausted his ammunition, and 
the fort being on fire, Anderson surrendered but with the honors of war was permitted to sail for New 
York. 

The effect of the news of this engagement was marvelous. I'p to this time most of the northern 
people had not believed that the South was in earnest. They thought that the questions were political, 
and Hke similar ones in the past would somehow be settled as heretofore. When the news of the fall 
of Sumter was received, the people of the free states seemed to be of one mind and everything else 
was forgotten. When President Lincoln, on April 15th, two days after the surrender, issued his call 
for 75,000 volunteers, "to maintain the honor, the integrity, and the existence of our national union," 
the answer was prompt. Thousands more than were called for volunteered, and provisions, money, 
arms and supplies of all kinds were tendered by the states and by individuals. 

CALL FOR TROOPS 

Pennsylvania was to furnish 14,000 of the troops in all sixteen regiments, called for by President 
Lincoln. Andrew G. Curtin, who had been elected Governor of the state in October, 1860, was an 

[ 305 1 




87th CROSSING THE POTOMAC 



306 



ardent Union man. His inaugural address, in January, 1861, referred to the unfortunate conditions 
of the country. Soon after hearing of Lincoln's proclamation, he called upon volunteer companies in 
the state to assemble at Harrisburg and prepare for the defense of the nation. Even before this call 
telegrams came to him from uniformed companies from every section of the state tendering their 
services. 

SIXTH MASSACHUSETTS 

On the night of April 16th, the Sixth Massachusetts Regiment, left Lowell under command of 
Colonel Jones for the defense of Washington. These troops were all armed and equipped for war. 
When they reached Philadelphia, they were joined by a regiment of 1,000 men under Colonel W. F. 
Small, who had commanded a company in the Mexican war, in which some of our York County troops 
served. His soldiers were all unarmed. When the Sixth Massachusetts was approaching Baltimore, 
Colonel Jones informed his men that they were in danger of being attacked by a mob while passing 
through Baltimore. He ordered them to load their muskets and prepare for an attack, but not to fire 
unless the mob had first fired upon them. These early defenders of the nation were traveling in thirty-five 
cars, drawn by three engines. When they reached the station at Baltimore, they began to move across 
the city in cars drawn by horses to Camden station, of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. At this 
time, locomotives did not pass through the city. As Colonel Small's troops were unarmed, they re- 
mained at the station for a time and then by order of the Governor, returned to Philadelphia. 

SLXTH MASSACHUSETTS ATTACKED 

Four companies of the Sixth Massachusetts marched through the city. These were attacked by 
a mob, throwing stones and brickbats and firing upon the soldiers who quickly returned the fire, 
kiUing seven citizens of Baltimore and wounding several others. Two of the Massachusetts soldiers 
were killed. This event occurred on April 19th, the anniversary of the battle of Lexington and Concord 
in the Revolution. Intense excitement prevailed in Baltimore, and the news of the mob attacking 
the troops, was telegraphed all over the northern states. It aroused the patriotic ardor of the loyal 
people. 

As early as January 15, 1861, a Union meeting had been held in the Court House at York, to discuss 
the conditions of affairs in the country. When the news of the attack on Fort Sumter reached the 
town, the Worth Infantry, Captain Thomas A. Ziegle, and York Rifles, Captain George Hay, offered 
their services to the government. These companies were both armed with rifles which had been 
furnished them two years before by the Secretary of war. On April 17th, the Governor accepted 
their services and they awaited the call to duty. 

Immediately after the attack on the troops at Baltimore had occurred, Governor Hicks, of Mary- 
land, ordered the bridges of the Northern Central Railroad north of the city and the bridges on part 
of the road from Baltimore to Wilmington, to be burned. He claimed to be in favor of the Union and 
ordered this destruction of the bridges for the purpose of preventing troops from the northern states 
passing through the dominion of Maryland. 

On the evening of April 20th, General W. H. Keim, commanding the militia of Pennsylvania, 
arrived at York from Washington. Because of the destruction of the bridges, he was driven to Cockeys- 
ville in a carriage, and reached York on a locomotive. He gave authority for the Worth Infantry 
and the York Rifles to proceed to Parkton for the purpose of guarding the bridges at that point. They 
left York at 11 o'clock on the night of the 20th. Refore leaving, these companies molded buUets 
and were fully armed and equipped for the military service. 

Governor Curtin organized the First, Second and Third Regiments of Pennsylvania ^'olunteers, 

[307 1 




87th REGIMENT AT THE BATTLE OF AMNCHESTER 



308 



at Hanisburg, and sent them late in the night of April 20th, to Cockeysville, to defend the bridges 
and the American flag. These troops were all armed with twenty rounds of ammunition. They were 
provided with rations for two days only and it soon fell to the duty of the citizens of York to slaughter 
bullocks on the Public Common and gather together other provisions and send them to the troops at 
Cockeysville and Parkton. Meantime, Mayor Brown and two prominent citizens of Baltimore, 
called upon President Lincoln at the White House, and asked that these Pennsylvania troops be sent 
without the state of Maryland in order to prevent bloodshed, because of the secession sentiment in 
Baltimore. 

CAMP SCOTT AT YORK 

Immediately after the attack on Fort Sumter at Charleston, South Carolina, the state of Pennsyl- 
vania organized a military camp at Harrisburg. Owing to the fact that trouble had arisen in Baltimore 
and along the line of the Northern Central, Governor Curtin ordered the troops distributed along the 
railroad to return to York. 

Camp Scott was then established on the York Fair Grounds in the Southeastern part of the town. 
On Sunday, April 21st. a company from Gettysburg, the Marion Rifles and the Hanover Infantry, 
three armed and trained military companies came to York. Troops continued to arrive at this camp 
and by May 10, 1861, there were six full regiments and one battery of artillery in Camp Scott and 
some in a camp on Penn Common. 

These troops were divided into two brigades one of which was commanded by General Wynkoop 
and the other by General Negley. Early in June the troops in York were ordered to the front, because 
a long war was imminent. Meantime General Benjamin F. Butler of Massachusetts, was placed in 
charge of the Department of Maryland with headquarters in Baltimore. In June he was sent to the 
front, and was succeeded in Baltimore by General John A. Dix. of New York. 

LOCAL PATRIOTISM 

On April 20th. soon after receiving the news of the attack on the troops passing through Baltimore, 
large flags were floated to the breeze from the offices of the York Gazette and the York Republican, 
and also from the Tremont House, later the National Hotel , which was the stopping place for military 
officers. Other flags were displayed from the private residences of many citizens. On Monday, 
April 22d, a tall pole was erected in Centre Square and a bunting flag unfurled to the breeze. During 
this ceremony, the Worth Infantry Band played the Star Spangled Banner. Hon. Robert J. Fisher 
delivered a speech on this occasion. 

In the afternoon of the same day, a flag pole, one hundred feet high, was erected in front of the 
lumber yard of H. SmaU & Sons, on North Duke Street, when patriotic speeches were delivered by 
Henry L. Fisher, John Gibson and John W. Bittenger. The Continental Club also unfurled a flag. 
There was a universal sentiment of patriotism in York and throughout the county and a few days 
later a flag, thirty-five feet in length, made by the patriotic ladies of York, was unfurled from the top 
of the pole in Centre Square. This was the flag that was taken down by the Confederates when they 
entered the town June 28, 186.3. 

At a meeting of the court on .Monday. April 22d, the president judge, Robert J. Fisher, in charging 
the grand jury, referred to the distracted state of the country, and urged upon them the necessity of 
providing for the comfort and support of those who had so promptly obeyed their country's call. He 
stated that the citizens of York had subscribed several thousand dollars, and that the borough author- 
ities had appropriated 81,000, and recommended the grand jury to request the commissioners to make 
a hberal appropriation which would be legahzed by the Legislature. Several members of the bar 

[309 1 




310 



also addressed the grand jury. The scene was a very impressive one. The grand jury the next day 
recommended that the commissioners appropriate §10,000, which was promptly done. Hanover and 
Wrightsville made liberal appropriations, aggregating about $15,000 in all. The Legislature sub- 
sequently ratified these proceedings. 

The attack on Fort Sumter was the opening of hostihties between the two sections of the Union. 
Soon afterward four more states seceded, making in all eleven to form the Confederate States of 
America. The news of the progress of the war was watched with eager interest. Pennsylvania 
became one of the border States. The quota of sixteen regiments for the three months' service, was 
soon furnished by the Keystone State. At first it was believed that the war would end in a few months, 
but the battle of Bull Run, fought on July 21, 1861, gave encouragement to the South and a long war 
was imminent. It was then that Lincoln called for troops to serve for three years, or during the war. 
Pennsylvania showed her loyalty and furnished in all 366,000 men for the defense of the Lnion. 

GO TO THE FRONT 

Regiments were now being organized to be sent to the front. The Second Regiment. Pennsylvania 
Volunteers, enlisted in the three months' service was organized at Harrisburg, April 21st, under com- 
mand of Colonel Stambaugh of Chambersburg. The York Rifles under Captain Hay, with John W. 
Schall, First Lieutenant; Jacob Emmett, Second Lieutenant, was assigned to this regiment. On June 
1st, it was sent to Chambersburg and became part of the Second Brigade, Second Division of General 
Patterson's army, which was charged with guarding the lines of communication with Washington, 
and operated against the Confederate forces in the Shenandoah Valley. 

The Sixteenth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, was organized May .3, 1861, in Harrisburg with 
Thomas A. Ziegle of York as Colonel. The Worth Infantry was assigned to this regiment as Company 
A, with John Hays, Captain; Solomon Myers, First Lieutenant; John M. Deitch, Second Lieutenant; 
this regiment on June 8th, joined the army at Chambersburg. 

Patterson was ordered to move his entire force from Chambersburg toward Winchester, ^'irginia. 
An army of Confederates under General Joseph E. Johnston had begun to concentrate forty miles 
southeast of Washington. 

Stonewall Jackson with a brigade of well drilled troops were in the vicinity of Winchester. Mean- 
time the L nion and Confederate armies concentrated at Rull Run on the Virginia side of the Potomac, 
not far from Washington. Patterson engaged a part of Jackson's force near Winchester, but the latter 
escaped to join the confederates and took part in the engagement at Bull Run, July 21st. 

This battle resulted in a disaster to the Union forces. The Confederates at Bull Run were under 
the direct charge of Jefferson Davis, then president of the Confederacy. With the southern capital at 
Montgomery, Alabama, until the following year. 

The three months' term of the regiments of Colonels Ziegle and Stambaugh expired July 17th, and 
they returned home. Most of the York troops re-enlisted for three years by joining the Eighty- 
seventh Regiment, Pennsylvania volunteers. 

The next troops, one hundred in number, from this city and county joined the Thirtieth, one of 
the Banner Regiments of Pennsylvania Reserves, enlisted for three years on July 27th, five days after 
the Battle of Bull Run. 

The thirtieth was assigned to McCall's Brigade of the Pennsylvania Reserves. During the cam- 
paign under McClellan in his movement toward Richmond in 1862 this regiment did valiant service 
in the division commanded by General John M. Reynolds of Lancaster. 

It distinguished itself at the battle of Malvern Hill within sight of the steeples of Richmond, then 
the capital of the Confederacy. In 1862, the regiment served in the battles of Second Bull Run and 
Antietam, and in 1863 at Gettysburg. In 1864 it served under Grant in his triumphant march towards 

[3111 



Richmond, remaining in the service until the end of the war. The Thirtieth, or First Reserves, was 
one of the best trained regiments in the Union army. 

The Forty-first Pennsylvania, or Twelfth Reserves, another gallant regiment was organized in 
June, 1861. Samuel N. Bailey of DlUsburg, this county, was chosen Lieutenant-Colonel. Company 
G, of this regiment was recruited in this county with Charles W. Diven of Stewartstown as Captain. 
Later he was promoted to Major and in 1861 became Colonel of the Two Hundredth Regiment. 

The Twelfth Reserves were conspicuous for valor under McClellan at Antietam and Fredericks- 
burg in 1862. They were under General Crawford at Gettysburg, and took part in the hard fought 
battle® under Grant in the Wilderness and Cold Harbor, remaining in the service until the end of 
the war. 

The Forty-third Regiment, First Pennsylvania Artillery, entered the service at the opening of the 
war. One battery of six guns and two hundred men was organized at York by Captain Alferd E. Lewis 
a member of the local bar. The entire regiment had ten batteries or sixty guns. Later the batteries 
were assigned to difl'erent regiments. Battery E. after 1862, was commanded by Thomas G. Orwig of 
York County. In 1864 it was assigned to the Army of the James under Rutler at Drury's BhilT and 
the siege of Petersburg. It was the first battery that entered the city of Richmond after the evacution 
of 1865. 

The Seventy-sixth Regiment P. V. I., organized in August, 1861, contained two York County 
companies. One of them was recruited by Captain H. C. Mclntyre of York, and the other by Captain 
Cyrus Diller of Hanover. Charles C. Garrettson of York was appointed quartermaster, and later 
became a captain in the regular army. Captain Mclntyre was succeeded in order by captains Jacob 
J. Young, Frank J. Magee and Harrison Stair; and Captain Cyrus Diller by William S. Diller and 
Charles L. Bittinger. 

The 76th assisted in capturing Fort Pulaski, at the mouth of the Savanah River, and was noted 
for its gallantry in the famous attack on Fort Wagner when it suffered a heavy loss in killed and 
wounded, including 1.30 men and 5 commissioned officers; in a second assault on Fort Wagner the 
regiment sustained another heavy loss. 

In May, 1864. this regiment was ordered to Virginia and assigned to the Department of the James. 
At Drury's Rluff Captain Young was killed. Later the Seventy-sixth was transferred to the Potomac 
Army and took part in Cold Harboi-, Deep Bottom and the heavy engagements before Petersburg. 
In January, 1865, this regiment lead the charge on Fort Fisher in North Carolina, one of the hardest 
contests of the south. It was mustered out at Harrisburg July 2.3, 1865, after continuous service of 
nearly four years, ranking as one of the bravest commands in the Union army. 

Captain Frank J. Magee of Wrightsville became a Brigadier General of the National Guards of 
Pennsylvania. 

87TH REGIMENT PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 

After the defeat of the Union forces at the battle of Bull Run on July 21, 1861, President Lincoln 
issued a call for 500,000 troops to serve for three years or during the war. In response to this call 
the 87th Regiment was organized in York with George Hay as Colonel; James H. Stable, Lieutenant 
Colonel; Charles H. Buehler, Major, and Jacob Emmett, Adjutant. Recruiting began all over York 
County and the companies rendezvoused on Penn Common and the Fair Grounds. 

The Ellsworth Zouaves, drilled by Captain Stable, became Company A, with John Fahs as captain. 
Company R, formerly the Washington Guards came from Newberry Township under Captain Crull. 
Company C was recruited in Hopewell, Chanceford and Windsor by Captain Andrew J. Fulton. 
Captain Noah G. Ruhl, who served five years in the regular army, recruited Company D, in Shrewsbury 
and vincinity. Company E was recruited by Captain Solomon Myers of York. Company F came to 
York from Gettysburg under Captain Buehler. Company G was recruited at Hanover by Lieutenant 

[ 312 1 



Morningstar. Company H came from Warrington Township under Captain Harmon. Company I 
from New Oxford under Captain Pfeififer and Company K from York under Captain John W. Schall. 

The regiment when fully armed and equipped contained 1010 officers and men, and nine-tenths of 
its membership were young men from York County, many of whom had been in the three month's 
service. Owing to the fact that danger still existed in the destruction of bridges south of York, the 
87th was distributed along the line of the Northern Central from York to Baltimore. It was here 
that Colonel Hay and his men remained on guard duty from Sept. 16, 1861 to 1862. It was then trans- 
ferred to Keyser, West \'irginia. and remained there in drill and discipline. 

Late in the fall of 1862, the 87th with other regiments began a romantic march across the hills and 
mountains of West ^"irginia to drive out confederates who were carrying on guerilla warfare. In 
December. 1862, the 87th returned to Keyser where it was placed in the brigade of General Cluseret, 
a French officer of note and marched across the mountains in a snow storm arriving at Winchester, 
Virginia, just before Christmas, 1862. 

This regiment began its active career in the Battle at Carter's Woods near Winchester in June, 
1863. General Lee had begun his march northward on the Gettysburg campaign. Milroy commanded 
the Federal troops at Carter's Woods and was routed by superior force of the enemy. 

The engagement at Carter's Woods resulted in the complete rout of the Federals, the capture of 
a Maryland and Connecticut Begiment and two hundred of the 87th. They were taken to Richmond 
and held as prisoners for six weeks and then paroled returning to their regiment. 

In the Mine Run ex-pedition during the mid-winter of 1863, the regiment under command of 
Colonel John W. Schall took an active part. Next this regiment was assigned to duty in the army 
of the Potomac under General Grant. 

After remaining in winter quarters along the Rapidan River, in May, 1864, Grant began his famous 
march toward Richmond. The 87th Regiment now under Colonel John W. Schall was distinguished 
for valor in the Wilderness at Spottsylvania and Cold Harbor. In the last mentioned battle Colonel 
Schall, then commanding a brigade, lead his men farther into the enemy's line than any other com- 
mander. The loss was quite heavy in these engagements. Captain Farrah was killed at Carter's 
Woods and Captain Pfeiffer at Cold Harbor. Colonel Schall was wounded in the charge at Cold Harbor. 

On July 1, 1864, Grant heard that Early with a division of 20,000 men was marching down the 
Shenandoah ^ alley toward Washington. He despatched Rickett's division of the Sixth Army Corps 
to Frederick, Maryland. On July 9th, a terrible battle took place on the Monocacy Creek in which 
the 87th Regiment lost seventy-four men in killed, wounded and captured. Among the killed and 
mortally wounded were Adjutant Martin, Lieutenants Spangler, Haack and Welsh, and Captain 
W. H. Lanius. aftexward a prominent citizen of York, was wounded in this battle while carrying an 
order for Lew Wallace in the Union army. 

At Monocacy under General Lew Wallace the army held Early in check and prevented him from 
capturing Washington and the Treasury Department. After this battle the 87th Regiment was placed 
in the command of General Sheridan, and was in the thickest of the fight in the battle of Opequon near 
Winchester, \'irginia, where Sheridan routed the entire army of Confederates and drove them up the 
Valley. 

Soon after this event their term of three years had ended. Those who did not re-enlist returned 
to York, and were received with great demonstrations of joy. They marched from the station to 
Penn Park where a dinner was given in their honor and patriotic speeches delivered. The reorganized 
regiment took part in the battle of Cedar Creek where Captain Edgar M. Ruhl was killed. 

The 87th had the reputation of being the best regiment on the skirmish line in the Potomac Army. 
Every company was noted for excellent drill and discipline. The regiment took part in thirty-eight 
battles and skirmishes during the entire period of service. It suffered the heaviest losses at Cold 
Harbor, Petersburg, Monocacy, Winchester and Cedar Creek, winning high praise for valor in those 

[ 313 1 



hard-fought engagements. The entire muster roll in four years was 1280 including recruits. The 
losses in killed were 10 commissioned officers and 90 men. about fifty died in southern prisons; Captain 
Fahs of Company A, Captain Morningstar of Company G and Lieutenant Stallman of Company C, 
were captured early in 186 1 and were confined in Southern prisons for officers until the end of the 
war. Colonel John W. Schall who commanded the regiment for two years was living at Norristown 
at the age of 85 in 1919. 

The 92d regiment, known as the Ninth Pennsylvania Cavalry, was organized in Harrisburg in 
August, 1861. About eighty soldiers from York County served in this command. It was sent to the 
Army of the Cumberland and took part in several battles in Kentucky and Tennessee including Chick- 
amauga. Roswell M. Russel of Hanover was fieutenant-colonel. In 1861, the Ninth Cavalry joined 
in the march under Sherman from Atlanta to the Sea, serving in Kilpatrick's Division of Cavalry until 
the end of the war, being mustered out in July, 186.5. 

The 93d Regiment was organized at Harrisburg September 1, 1861. and included about 100 soldiers 
from York County. Rev. McCarter, a methodist clergyman, was chosen colonel and was severely 
wounded while leading his men at Fair Oaks near Richmond in ^lay, 1862. This regiment was con- 
spicuous for its valor at Antietam and Fredericksburg in the latter part of 1862. It served in the Sixth 
Army Corps at Gettysburg, the Wilderness and Cold Harbor. In the fall of 1864, it was assigned to 
Sheridan's command in the valley of ^ irginia. Most of the York County soldiers in this regiment 
came from the upper end. 

The 103d Regiment, recruited in western Pennsylvania, enfisted for three years. It lost heavily 
in killed and wounded in the battles of Virginia and 132 of its men died in Andersonville prison in 
Georgia. Two companies from York County belonged to this regiment and were commanded respec- 
tively by George Shipp and Emanuel Herman. 

The 107th Pennsylvania Regiment was organized by Colonel Thomas A. Ziegle of York, in l\Iarch, 
1862, for three years. It was sent to the Shenandoah Valley under Ranks, and later to \A"arrenton, 
Virginia, where Colonel Ziegle died of fever. He was one of the most popular soldiers of the army, 
and had served as a sergeant in the Mexican War and as captain in the three months' service when 
the war opened. 

The 107th took part in the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and 
in Grant's Campaign against Richmond, remaining in the army until the surrender of Lee in April 
1865. In the siege of Petersburg, Lieutenant George C. Stair of Company A from York was captured 
and made his escape from prison. Oliver P. Stair of York was promoted to captain of Company A, 
and later to major of the regiment. George Crimmons of York was wounded at Antietam and taken 
prisoner at Gettysburg, but was soon parolled and promoted to second lieutenant. This regiment was 
noted for its gallantry in action. 

The 108th Pennsylvania Regiment, first known as Harlan's Light Cavalry, was composed of men 
from Iowa, New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania, being one of the most interesting commands 
in the whole Lnion Army. It was organized as an independent regiment, but in 1862 assigned to this 
state as the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry. This regiment was noted for scouting duty, and during 
McClellan's Campaign before Richmond in 1862, made a raid into North Carolina and tore up the 
Weldon Railroad leading to the Confederate capital. Company I belonged to York County, under 
Captain Daniel Herr. Lieutenant Schriver of York was killed near Petersburg. The regiment re- 
mained under sheridan until the surrender of Lee in 1865. 

The 130th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, answered the call of President Lincoln for 300,000 
troops to serve for nine months. This occurred after the defeat of the Potomac Army under Pope at 
Second Bull Run in the summer of 1862. In all Pennsylvania furnished fifteen regiments for the nine 
months' service in answer to this call, namely. 23d to 137th. inclusive. 

f 311 1 



Four weeks after the 130th entered the service, it took part in the battle of Antietani, sometimes 
called the hardest-fought one day's battle of the Civil War. 

The regiment was organized with troops from York, Cumberland, Dauphin and two eastern 
Counties, August 17. 1862, with Levi Maish of York as Lieutenant-Colonel, and Henry L Zinn of 
Cumberland County, Colonel. One-half of this regiment belonged to York County and included 
Company B, Captain H. L Glessner; Company L Captain Lewis Small; Company K. Captain David 
Z. Sipe, recruited at York, and Company C, by Captain Joseph S. Jenkins of Hanover. 

At the battle of Antietam this regiment was assigned to French's Division, Sumner's Corps, being 
placed in the thickest of the fight at the famous angle near the Dunkard Church, where it maintained 
its position with remarkable bravery for nearly two hours under a withering fire from the enemy. The 
loss was heavy in killed and wounded. Gen. French in his report said, "The conduct of this regiment 
in action must take a prominent place in the history of this great battle. There never was better 
material in any army. The 130th lost in this battle thirty-two killed and one hundred forty-six 
wounded, many of whom died of their wounds. Among the wounded were Colonel Maish, Captain 
Jenkins, Captain Sipe and Lieutenant William Tomes of York County. The 130th also took a promi- 
nent part in the battle of Fredericksburg on December 13. 1862, with French's Division in a charge 
upon the enemy's breastworks. The Confederates were heavily entrenched in the front. Similar 
conditions existed along the whole L nion line and the Army of the Potomac was defeated. 

The regiment in this engagement lost 62 men in killed and wounded. Among the killed was Colonel 
Zinn, who at a critical time in the battle siezed the regimental flag in his left hand and flashing his 
sword in his right, rushed forward saying; "Stick to your standard boys. The 130th never loses 
courage." He was struck by a minie ball in this charge, and instantly killed. Lieutenant Wilson of 
York County was also killed. At the battle of Chancellorsville this regiment displayed the same 
courage and determination that it did at Fredericksburg and Antietam. 

Colonel Maish, who then commanded this regiment, was wounded. One week later the nine 
months' term of enlistment had ended and the regiment returned home. It was mustered out on 
the 21st. 

After the war. Colonel Maish resumed the practice of law at York. For a period of six years he 
was a representative in Congress from York County. He died in 1901. Captain Joseph S. Jenkins 
of Hanover became Major of the 184th Regiment and was killed at the siege of Petersburg. Captain 
Sipe was afterward Major of the 187th Regiment. 

Lieutenant John J. Frick of Company K escaped unhurt in all the battles. Since the close of 
the Civil War he has followed the occupation of a banker, serving twenty years as the cashier of the 
York National Bank, the oldest financial institution in the city. 

Edward W". Spangler was a prominent member of the York Bar for a period of forty years, and 
his brother. Dr. B. F. Spangler, for one-half century was one of the leading physicians of this city. 

The 166th Regiment was composed often companies of drafted men from York County and served 
for a period of nine months. The Conscript Act was put into force in Pennsylvania in November 
1862. This regiment was organized in York November 29th of that year, with Andrew J. Fulton of 
Stewartstown. Colonel; Geo. W. Reisinger, of York, Lieutenant Colonel; and Joseph Renaut of 
Hanover, INIajor. 

The 166th was first sent to Washington, and from thence to Sufl'olk. ^ irginia. and placed under 
command of General Peck with 14,000 men. Peck was opposed by a large Confederate force under 
Longstreet who soon afterward joined Lee on the march to Gettysburg. This regiment was then placed 
in the army of John A. Dicks of New York, operating between Suffolk and Richmond. It remained 
there until July 28. 1863. when the term of service had expired. 

The 182d Regiment, the 21st Cavalry, entered the service June 23, 1863. It was composed largely 
of troops from York, Adsms, Lancaster and Cambria Counties. At the time of the Confederate 

[315] 



invasion. Captain Robert Bell of Gettysburg organized an independent company of cavalry, his men 
furnishing their own horses. His company met the enepiy at the approach of Gettysburg on July 
26th, when George W. Sandoe was killed, being the first soldier who lost his life in the Battle of 
Gettysburg. 

Captain Bell's Cavalry and the City Troop of Philadelphia acted as scouts when Early approached 
York and Wrightsville. 

Meantime one Independent Company of Cavalry had been organized in the lower end of York 
County. These joined Bell's command and they became Company A of the 21st Pennsylvania 
Cavalry. When the regiment re-enlisted for a term of three years February 1, 1864, Robert Bell was 
promoted major and Hugh W. McCall of York chosen captain of Company A. The 21st Cavalry 
performed valiant services in the army around Richmond in the spring of 1865 and was at the surrender 
of Lee at Appomatox. Of the entire muster roll of the regiment 1 17 were killed in battle or died of 
disease and 253 wounded, making it one of the bravest regiments of the army. 

After the war Captain McCall became a prominent lawyer at York and was living in 1919. Lieu- 
tenant Manifold served four years as sheriff of York County as a Republican. 

The 187th Regiment, P. Y. L, was organized at Harrisburg March, 1864, largely out of men who had 
previously served in the army. David Z. Sipe of York who had served as Captain in the 130th, 
recruited Company B with 100 men from York. 

This regiment joined Grant's Army at the battle of Cold Harbor in June, 1864. It became a part 
of the 5th Army Corps under General Warren. At the siege of Petersburg this regiment lost one-tenth 
of its number in an impetuous attack in getting possession of the Petersburg and Norfolk Railroad. 
Major Merrick and Jonathan Jessop of York each lost a leg in this engagement. After a service of 
nine months the war had ended. This regiment was sent to Philadelphia where it acted as a guard to 
the remains of President Lincoln, while his body lay in state in that city on its way to Springfield, 111. 
Among the survivors of this regiment Hving in York in 1919 were Lieutenant Jessop, for eighteen years 
Postmaster at York, and Henry Gable, a highly esteemed resident of the city. 

The 192d Regiment was organized at Harrisburg in the summer of 1864, for a term of one year. 
Rev. S. S. Richmond, a clergyman, recruited a fuD company of 200 men at Yocumtown in Newberry 
Township, and marched with it to Harrisburg. This company joined the regiment at Harper's Ferry 
and spent the remainder of the war in the Shenandoah ^'alley in Mrginia. At fii'st it was under 
General Sheridan and later performed guard duty at Staunton, ^ irginia, until the end of the war. 
Captain Richmond also acted as chaplain of the regiment. 

The 200th Regiment, P. V. L, organized at Harrisburg September 3, 1864. contained four companies 
of troops from York County, Colonel Charles Diven of Stewartstown recruited the regiment. He 
had been major of the 12th Reserves. JMany of the men composing the four companies from York 
County had never been in the army, while others had proven their valor many times on the field of 
battle. 

The regiment was sent to the front at once and assigned to duty in the Army of the James below 
Richmond. On November 17th, the 200th engaged in its first battle, showing great courage and 
helping to defend the Union line. 

On November 28th, it was transferred to Hartranft's Division of Pennsylvania Troops in the 9th 
Corps under Parke, and Colonel Diven promoted to command a brigade. 

At Fort Steadman, near Petersburg, the 200th was praised by General Hartranft for bravely 
scaling and retaking the fort from the enemy. It suffered a heavy loss in the engagement of April 
3d at Fort Sedgwick. This regiment entered the city soon after it was evacuated. It was first to place 
the American Flag on the Court House. A few days later Lee surrendered and the war was over. 
Of the York County men in this regiment. Company A, was commanded by Adam Reisinger: Company 
D, by William H. Duhling; Company H, by Jacob Weist, and Company K, by Hamilton I. Glessner. 

[316 1 



The 207th Pennsylvania Regiment was organized September 8. 186 1. with Robert C. Cox, Colonel. 
It was assigned to the Army of the James, and in November placed in the 9th corps under Burnside. 
Later it was assigned to Hartranft"s Division, composed of six Pennsylvania Regiments. On Feb- 
ruary 5, 1865, the 207th was engaged at Hatcher's Run, where a full brigade was commanded by Colonel 
Cox. In the assault to retake Fort Steadman, Colonel Cox and four comrades were in the advance 
line, and were the first to enter the ramparts where they captured a large number of Confederates. 
The loss to the regiment in this attack was only one killed and sixteen wounded. 

The 207th was in the front line at the attack and capture of Fort Sedgwick, where Cox commanding 
a brigade also led his own regiment. The loss in the 207th here was 37 killed, and 146 wounded and 
eight missing. When Fort Sedgwick fell, Petersburg was evacuated by the Confederates, and one 
week later Lee surrendered. This regiment was mustered out at Alexandria, May 13, 1865. Company 
E was commanded by Captain Lewis Small of York, who recruited in York County 100 men. 

The 209th Pennsylvania Regiment was organized September 16, 1864, with Tobias Kauffman, 
Colonel, and sent to Bermuda Hundred, to join the Army of the James. It was fust engaged at 
Chapman's Farm. November 24th, the regiment was assigned to Hartranft's Division, and on March 
25, 1865, the 209th was at the assault and capture of Fort Stedman. On April 2d and 3d the 209th 
and other regiments in company with the Division and Corps, assaulted the Confederate works before 
Petersburg, showing great courage in action. Soon afterward the city was evacuated, and on April 
9th, Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox. 

Company E of this regiment was recruited in the lower end of York County with Henry W. Spangler, 
Captain, Thomas J. Hendricks First Lieutenant, and William B. Morrow and William Douglass, 
Second Lieutenants. 

Company I was recruited in Caroll Township with John Klugh. Captain, George W. Heiges and 
Henry Arnold, Lieutenants. 

EMERGENCY REGIMENT 

When General Lee entered Pennsylvania in June, 1863, Governor Curtin of Pennsylvania called 
for twenty regiments for Emergency Troops. They soon reported at Harrisburg for service. The 
20th Regiment, under command of Colonel Thomas, was formed into two battalions. One was as- 
signed to the duty of guarding the railroad bridges over the Conewago at York Haven, and the other 
to guard the bridges over the Codorus near Hanover Junction, until a large force of Confederates 
arrived when they retreated across the Susquehanna to Columbia. 

The 26th Emergency Regiment, commanded by Colonel Jennings of Hai-risburg, was sent to Gettys- 
burg and was stationed there when Early's advance reached that town on July 26th. The advance 
of the regiment under Lieutenant-Colonel Joseph S. Jenkins of Hanover moved out in a fog west of 
Gettysburg to meet the enemy. They encountered the 35th Rattahon of ^'irginia Cavalry under 
Colonel White and a few shots were exchanged. When the fog broke away the Pennsylvania boys 
saw a large force of infantry coming down the turnpike. They retreated in haste through Gettysburg. 
In this encounter the 26th lost 170 officers and men all of whom were paroled the next day on account 
of the approaching Battle of Gettysburg. 

Company F of this regiment was recruited by Rev. Frederick Klinefelter of York, Pennsylvania 
College. Company I was recruited by Captain Forrest at Hanover. Nearly all his men belonged to 
that town, and included prominent citizens. This regiment showed great courage when it met the 
enemy at Gettysburg and fired the first shot in that great battle. 

[317 1 



T^E GETTYSBURG CAMPAIGN 

After the reverses of the Army of the Potomac under Burnside at Fredericksburg in December, 
1862. and the defeat of the same army under Hooker at Chancellorsville in May. 1863. General Robert 
E. Lee, commanding a Confederate army of nearly 80,000 men, began to march northward with the 
intention of transferring the seat of war from Virginia into Pennsylvania. He moved northward from 
Chancellorsville early in July with his forces composed of three corps. Longstreet commanded one, 
Ewell the second and A. P. Hill the third. The Southern soldiers had been placed under rigid drill 
and discipline before they began this march. 

Lee crossed into the Shenandoah ^'alley. met and defeated Milroy with a small force near Win- 
chester on June 14th, and continued what seemed to be a triumphant movement into the Keystone 
State. 

This movement of Lee alarmed the northern states. Thousands of men enlisted and entered the 
army. The entire area of Southern Pennsylvania was under intense strain and excitement. 

Meantime the Army of the Potomac was placed under General Meade, who followed Lee on his 
march into Pennsylvania. The two armies were soon to meet in a desperate contest on July 1st, 
2d and 3d, in and around Gettysburg, where the Confederates were defeated and driven back to 
Virginia. 

LEE AT CHAMBERSBURG 

After General Lee crossed the Pennsylvania line near Hagerstown, Md., he halted at Chambersburg. 
There on the morning of June 26th, he sent General Ewell to Carlisle with two divisions. The same 
day he despatched General Early with one division of 10,000 men toward Gettysburg and York. 

On the night of June 28th, Pearly encamped with four brigades near Bigmount in Washington 
Township. General Gordon with his brigade of 2800 Georgia troops bivouacked the same night at 
Farmer's Post Office in Paradise Township. 

Chief Burgess David Small and a delegation of citizens met the Confederate Commander at this 
camp, where he received assurance that the Confederate forces would not destroy any private properly 
or molest any citizens when they entered York. 

GORDON ENTERS YORK 

At 10 o'clock Sunday morning, just as the church bells were ringing for service, Gordon's brigade 
entered York, marching up West Market Street. At Center Square the advance column halted, 
took down a large American flag floating from the top of a tall pole in the Square, and continued to 
march toward Wrightsville. 

When Gordon approached Wrightsville, a skirmish took place between his advance guard and some 
Federal troops. It was an unequal contest and the Federal troops were ordered to cross the river to 
Columbia. 

At that time General Couch at Harrisburg was in command of this Department. He ordered 
Colonel Frick with a regiment of Federal troops at Columbia to burn the bridge. This was done to 
prevent the Confederates from marching over it. 

Meantime, Gordon had shelled Wrightsville with a battery of four guns, and obtained possession 
of the town. He remained there one night and the follow ing day returned to \ ork. 

[318] 



EARLY'S ARRIVAL AT YORK 

General Early began his march at daybreak on June 28th, from Bigmount through Davidsburg 
and Weiglestown, despatching four companies of cavalry to the mouth of the Conewago Creek at York 
Haven, where two raihoad bridges were burned to prevent Union troops from coming down from 
Harrisburg. 

On June 27th, Early despatched Colonel White with a detachment of 100 cavalry through Hanover 
to Hanover Junction, where they burned the railroad bridges o% er the Codorus along the Northern 
Central. White then moved to York, joining Early on the 28th. 

The Louisiana Brigade under General Hays encamped on the night of the 28th at Loucks" Mills, 
a short distance above York. Smith's Brigade of ^ irginia troops took position on Shunk's Hill over- 
looking the town, and planted cannon there. General Early, in a letter to the author of this story in 
1890, said: "I entered York with Avery's brigade of North Carohna troops who encamped on the 
York Common, where the hospital buildings were stationed, and also the Fair Grounds southeast of 
town. My object in putting my troops in these positions was to protect myself against the enemy if 
he approached." The different brigades, on the evening of the 29th. still held the position they first 
occupied upon entering the town, and remained there until ordered to retreat toward Gettysburg on 
the morning of June .SOth. 

EARLY'S REQUISITION 

Soon after General Early arrived he made a requisition upon the town for $100,000 in money and 
§40,000 in provisions and clothing for his troops. A committee of citizens began to raise money, but 
owing to the fact that the bank deposits and money owned by prominent citizens had been sent to 
Philadelphia, and elsewhere, the entire amount could not be raised. The committee however raised 
328,000 and turned it over to Early, at his headquarters in the Court House. A considerable supply 
of clothing and provisions were also raised. The situation did not please the Confederate chieftain 
and he proceeded to collect the money by using stronger efforts. 

CALLS MEETING IN COURT HOUSE 

Early then ordered the Court House bell rung for a public meeting. The large audience room was 
soon filled with representative men of the city. At a given notice. General Early marched up the 
main aisle and took a seat at the judge's desk. Surveying the audience, he arose from his chair dressed 
in full uniform of gray, with his sword dangling at his side. He then began to speak, demanding 
that the committee of citizens proceed at once to collect the balance of the money and turn it over to 
his Adjutant General. He spoke with earnestness, for the town was under martial law, and the Con- 
federate flag floated over the Court House. 

The leading citizens still persisted that 812,000.00 more could not then be raised, for the money 
was not in town. In truth, the money might have been collected from .some private citizens, but 
this matter was concealed for the time. 

THREATENS TO BURN CAR SHOPS 

Because the General did not succeed in getting a faithful promise that the people of York could 
raise $12,000.00, the balance demanded in his requisition, he went to the residence of the chief burgess 
and boldly declared that he would burn the car shops near the railroad station, because, said he, 'T 
have discovered that they are making cars for the Yankee Government. This makes them Government 

[319 1 



property." He had already sent a squad of men under Captain Wilson of North Carolina to set fire 
to the wooden shops. Had this been done great destruction of property would have followed. 

As General Early and Burgess Small walked down George Street and up North to the shops they 
found a large delegation of citizens collected there. At this instant PhiUp A. Small, of the firm of 
P. A. & S. Small, stepped up to the Confederate Officer and said. "General, if you do not burn these 
shops, I will give you a draft on New York for the payment of the amount you demand." 

At this juncture. General Early saw a Confederate courier galloping toward him. He walked from 
the crowd and received the message, which was from his corps commander. General Ewell, then at 
Carlisle. It ordered him to retreat to Gettysburg as the Potomac army was moving toward the 
town. He returned to the depot, told the delegation of citizens that he would consider Mr. Small's 
proposition until the following morning, well knowing that he would be out of town early the next 
day. He returned to his headquarters and issued the following Proclamation: 

York, Pa., June 30, 186,3. 
To lite Citizens of York: 

I have abstained from burning the railroad buildings and car shops of your town because, after examination I am 
satisfied the safety of the town would be endangered; and, acting in the spirit of humanity, which has ever characterized 
my government and its mihtary authorities. I do not desire to involve the innocent in the same punishment with the 
guilty. Had I applied the torch without regard to consequences 1 would have pursued a course that would have been 
full> \ iiidicated as an act of just retalialiori for the main aulhorizeil acts of barbarity perpetrated by your own army 
upon our soil. But we do not war upon women and cliildrrii, and 1 trust the treatment you have met with at the hands 
of my soldiers will open your eyes to the monstrous iniquity of the war waged by your government upon the people of 
the Confederate States, and that you will make an effort to shake off the revolting tyranny under which it is apparent 
to all you are yourselves groaning. 

J.A.EARLY 
Major General C. S. A. 

This is one of the most presumptive documents known to American warfare. It was printed in 
York and intended to be widely circulated on June 30th, but since Early had to retrace his steps the 
address was never distributed. The only original copies now in existence are two. One of them was 
given to the author of this article by General Early at his Lynchburg home in Virginia in 1890, and is 
now in the York County Museum; the other copy is on exhibition in a show-case in the Library of 
Congress at Washington. 

NOTED SOLDIERS FROM YORK COUNTY

He served as commander of different vessels until 1864, when he was assigned to duty in the block- 
ading squadron at New Orleans, and was at Mobile under Farragut when that city fell into the hands 
of the American Navy. 

Franklin was promoted to commodore in 1880, and to rear admiral in 1885. He retired at the 
age limit of sixty-two in 1887, and spent the remainder of his hfe in Washington. He was a brother

Jacob Lauman, of York, later of Burlington, Iowa, commanded a brigade under Grant in the 
battles of Shiloh and Fort Donelson, and a division of the western army under Grant in the siege and 
capture of Vicksburg in 1863. He was severely wounded in the battle of Belmont and retired from the 
army. He died at Burlington, Iowa, in 1867. 

Walter S. Franklin, soldier, was born in York in 1836, and graduated from the Scientific Department 
at Harvard University in 1857. At the opening of the Civil War he was appointed First Lieutenant

Michael P. Small, Brigadier General in the United States Army, was born in York and graduated 
from West Point in 1855. As a lieutenant in the Regular Army he aided in quelling the insurrection 
at Harper's Ferry in 1859, and during the Civil War served in the Commissary Department of the 
army in the field. He was Chief of Commissary under Grant from 1864 to the end of the war. From 
1865 to 1883 he was Chief of Commissary for the army in the west with headquarters at different 
times in San Antonio, San Francisco, and other western cities. 

Matthew Stanley Quay, soldier and United States Senator, was born at Dillsburg, York County,

he was elected Colonel of the 134th Pennsylvania Regiment, which served in the Army of the Potomac 
for nine months. In the Battle of Fredericksburg, Colonel Quay lead his regiment in the attack on 
Maryes Height, a strong point of the Confederate line, with great gallantry. 

The following year, Colonel Quay was appointed private secretary for Governor Curtain at Harris- 
burg. Later he served as Secretary of the Commonwealth and State Treasurer. From 1887 to the 
time of his death in 1904, he represented Pennsylvania in the United States Senate at Washington.

YORK IN THE WORLD WAR 

By Wadsworth M. George 

SOON after the United States entered the World War in April, 1917, war having been declared 
against Germany on the second day of that month, which was Good Friday, loyal citizens of 
York and York County were organized for war activities. Governor Brumbaugh had appointed 
Grier Hersh, president of the York National Bank, as chairman of the council of national defense 
and food administrator of York County. Mr. Hersh also was placed at the head of various other 
administrative committees to engage in the work of helping to win the war. That splendid organiza- 
tions were formed, is demonstrated by the success that was shown in the various activities. York 
County more than did its share in responding to the call of the country for finances to carry the war 
to a successful conclusion. The county has a record of having subscribed a total of S30. 182,850 in 
the five Liberty Loans, or $200 per capita, making it one of the banner counties of the United States 
in its per capita subscriptions to the Liberty Loans. This money was subscribed largely by the people, 
"Keep It Out Of The Banks," having been an effective slogan in several campaigns. 

Thoroughness of the work of the food administration placed York County among the model 
counties of the United States in food conservation. In addition to the loyal support given to the five 
Liberty Loans, there were sold by the War Stamp organization of York County $2,180,000 of War 
Saving Stamps. A War Chest was created, and while actual apparent needs were about $250,000 
the amount subscribed was $425,000. All managers of industrial and business establishments agreed 
to call upon their employes for contributions out of each week's pay and practically all pledges were 
kept. Several days after Grier Hersh was chosen by the Governor of Pennsylvania to direct the war 
activities of this county, the council of national defense was organized and for administrative purposes 
was divided into 13 districts, with York as headquarters. Originally, chairman of the council estab- 
lished headquarters where all communications were held with outside agencies and through the chairmen 
of the districts, the administration extended throughout the county. Subsequent to this, it was 
found in certain instances that the work was subdivided by the appointment of district directors who 
administered directly from headquarters to their county committees. A list of districts and chairmen 
is here given: District No. 1, city of York, boroughs of North York and West York, townships of 
Spring Garden, Springettsbury and West Manchester, Grier Hersh, chairman; district No. 2, borough 
of Hanover, townships of Penn, Heidelberg, Manheim and West Manheim, H. S. Stokes, chairmen, 
succeeded later by H. S. Ehrhart; district No. 5, boroughs of Dallastown, Yoe, Loganville and Seven 
Valleys, townships of Springfield and York, I. H. Rojahn, chairman; district No. 4, boroughs of Red 
Lion, Windsor and Felton, townships of Windsor and Chanceford, C. S. Lamotte, chairman; district 
No. 5, boroughs of Delta and Fawn Grove, townships of Lower Chanceford, Fawn and Peach Bottom, 
S. J. Barrett, chairman; district No. 6, boroughs of Stewartstown. Winterstown and Cross Roads, 
townships of Hopewell, East Hopewell and North Hopewell, the Rev. C. P. Leishman, chairman; 
district No. 7, boroughs of Glen Rock, Shewsbury, Railroad, New Freedom and Jefferson, townships 
of Shrewsbury and Codorus, J, Victor Wambaugh. chairman; district No. 8. boroughs of Spring Grove 
and New Salem, townships of North Codorus, Jackson and Paradise; W. L. Glatfelter, chairman; 
district No. 9, boroughs of Dover and Wellsville, townships of Dover, Warrington and Washington, 
W. B. Brougher, chairman: district No. 10, boroughs of Dillsburg and Franklintown, townships of 
Franklin, Carroll and Monaghan, W. S. Kapp, chairman; district No. 11, boroughs of Goldsboro, 
Lewisbury and York Haven, townships of Newberry and Fairview, J. Frank Zortman, chairman; 
district No. 12, boroughs of Mt. Wolf and Manchester, townships of Conewago, East Manchester and 

f 322 1 



Manchester, H. A. Kauffman. chairman; district No. 13, boroughs of Wrightsville, Hellam. East 
Prospect and Yorkana, townships of Hellam and Lower Windsor, R. P. Wilton, chairman. 

This organization of the council of national defense was effected: Chairman Grier Hersh; vice 
chairman, Mrs. Annie S. McConkey; executive committee, F. H. Beard, Dr. James A. Dale, A. B. 
Farquhar; treasurer, A. F. Fix; assistant treasurer, Laura J. Dice; executive secretary, D. D. Strite, 
succeeded by H. S. Ebert; assistant executive secretary. Miss M. R. Koons; directors for York County, 
building and material, George E. Neff; civihan service, A. B. Farquhar; motor transportation, James 
Rudisill, J. C. Eisenhart; assistant, Miss Mary D. Croll, motor messenger; food supply, Grier Hersh; 
Four Minute men, George Hay Kain; assistant director of churches, the Rev. Andrew Todd Taylor; 
home defense police, Adam Garver. county superintendent; Robert S. Spangler, adjutant; public 
service reserve, W. Y. Barnes, examiner in charge; fai'm labor agent, Jonas Menges; community labor 
board. Dr. Charles H Ehrenfield. chairman, P. A. Elsesser, secretary; W. Y. Barnes, examiner in 
charge; registration of women, !\Iiss Emma B. Cochi'an, chairman; women in industry. Mrs. Forry S. 
Medlar, chairman, Mrs. J. W. Thompson, vice chairman. 

Chairmen of the various war activities of the county were: Liberty bonds, Grier Hersh; Red Cross 
J. C. Schmidt, succeeded by Francis Farquhar; war savings stamps, 0. R. Read; food administrator, 
Grier Hersh; fuel administration, Robert C. Gephart; Y. M. C. A., P. A. Elsesser; Knights of Colum- 
bus, George Marlow; Jewish Relief, Dr. J. H. Comroe; war camp community service, Edward Leber; 
women's council of national defense, Mrs. Annie S. McConkey; Y. W. C. A., Mrs. M. L. Haitman; 
women's Liberty Bonds, Mrs. Carey Etnier. After the fourth Liberty Loan campaign, Mrs. Etnier 
resigned and Mrs. E. G. Steacy, who was chairman of the women's Liberty Loan committee of the 
city, became the county chairman and directed the work of the women in the Yictory Loan campaign. 
It was the purpose of the war council of York to assign and regulate the personal services of the men 
and women engaged in the various campaigns of war activities which were being conducted in the 
county during the war. It was found that the work was not equally distributed. Too much was 
devolving upon a few individuals in each campaign and the need of a central organization to conserve 
energy was seen. It was decided to call a meeting to form a war council. These organizations were 
asked to send delegates: York County Chapter of American Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., Ministerial 
Association. Knights of Columbus, Manufacturers' Association. York Federation of Trades L'nions, 
Y. W. C. A., Engineering Society. Women Council of National Defense, York Clearing House As- 
sociation, American Jewish Relief Committee, Chamber of Commerce and Public Safety Committee. 
Unorganized labor was represented. A meeting was held, at which all the districts of the county, 
except No. 2, embracing Hanover, were represented. This district preferred to conduct its own war 
activities. The war council organized by selecting these directors: George H. Whiteley, Sr., chairman; 
J. C. Schmidt, vice chairman; James Rudisill, secretary; W. R. Horner, treasurer. Each of the or- 
ganizations represented at the meeting was given representative on the board of directors. Grier 
Hersh, P. A. Elsesser, 0. R. Read, James Rudisill and V. K. Keesey were named as an executive 
committee, while the council was further organized into bureaus with five members each. Certain 
activities in every campaign were assigned to these bureaus according to the work for which they 
had been formed. 

In district No. 1, which included the city of York, direction of the different departments was as- 
signed as follows: Chairman of district, Grier Hersh; finance, Francis Farquhar; publicity, R. E. 
Winchester, who later was succeeded by Wadsworth N. George; legislation. Henry Washers; allied 
bodies. Edward Leber; medicine and sanitation. Dr. A. A. Long; civic relief, Wilbur Throne: food 
supply, John H. Rutter; materials, E. W. Gardner; industrial plants, S. Forry Laucks; motor trans- 
portation. James Rudisill; civilian service, A. B. Farquhar; military service, J. E. Baker; guards, 

[323 1 



police and inspection, Ray P. Sherwood; railways, Gordon Campbell; war camp community service, 
Edward Leber. 

The work of organization reached throughout York County. From its inception the war council 
greatly facilitated all civic service for the winning of the war. 

Throughout the period of the war, the York County council of national defense, with its various 
well organized divisions of loyal men and women proved 100 per cent efficient as a unit of the Pennsyl- 
vania council of national defense. The executives of the city Liberty Loan committee in the several 
successful campaigns were: Ellis S. Lewis, chairman; J. Warner Heinekamp. assistant chairman; 
secretary, Eugene F. Weiser; Francis Farquhar directed the work of the industrial committee in the 
Liberty Loan campaigns in the city. This committee proved a strong factor in putting York over the 
top in the fourth Liberty Loan campaign. An epidemic of influenza had spread while the campaign 
was in progress. A ban was placed upon public assemblages by the State Health Department, thus 
hampering the work of the campaign. The formation of a SI, 000 club at this critical time saved the 
Liberty Loan in York, putting the city over the top gloriously. The industrial committee was again 
active in the Victory Loan campaign in York and attained results such as contributed to the success 
of that memorable campaign. 

The first campaign to be carried on by the war council was that of the third Liberty Loan. After 
that campaign the war chest was created, with Francis Farquhar as manager. The war chest took in 
all war activities, including Liberty Bonds, food administration, council of national defense and others, 
when there was need of financial aid over and above federal appropriations. Early in the work of 
the war council it was decided that every war activity which carried on a national campaign would 
receive from the war chest whatever came to York county plus a percentage to be added, w hich per- 
centage should be the percentage that the whole L'nited States exceeded the allotment of the entire 
nation. This arrangement proved satisfactory to all headquarters" campaign managers. When the 
epidemic of influenza reached York County, the war chest contributed to the Red Cross enough 
money to finance all the work at the emergency hospital and similarly financed the emergency work 
for the Visiting Nurses' association. 

Too much cannot be said in praise of the effective work of the Four Minute men. an organization 
of speakers which was first directed by Robert C. Bair and subsequently by George Hay Kain. 
Speakers were provided by this organization for theaters, churches and various pubhc meetings in 
the many campaigns of the war period. This division of the work included the song leaders who were 
directed by M. B. Gibson, whose untimely death occurred some months after the close of the war 
activities in which he had figured so prominently before the public. 

The York County Liberty Loan committee conducted five successful campaigns. In June. 1917, 
the people of the county were suddenly called upon to raise an allotment of 82,268,000 for the govern- 
ment by the purchase of bonds. The amount subscribed in that first campaign was 82, 274, .500. The 
number of purchasers of the first loan was small. The general public was faced with a new problem 
which was not comprehended. There were many people who were unfamiliar with the system of 
floating a loan. Many did not know what a bond meant. Therefore subsequent campaigns were 
made educational and the public was quick to learn. The organization in the first Liberty Loan 
campaign developed into a fine and efficient body. The work of the women in the several Liberty 
Loan campaigns is a testimonial to their energy and their patriotic zeal. In four of the campaigns 
the women worked as a separate organization from that of the men. In the fifth campaign the com- 
mittees of men and women were merged and they co-operated in the work. j_^The record of \ ork County 
in the five loans is here given; — 

[ 324 I 



First loan, allotment $2,268,000; subscribed $2,271,500. 

Second loan, allotment, $4,000,000; subscribed $1,126,400. 

Third loan, allotment, $4,314,030; subscribed $.5,115,600. 

Fourth loan, allotment, $8,698,370; subscribed $8,714,450. 

Fifth loan, allotment $6,284,373; subscribed $7,571,900. 

Total allotments, $25,564,773; total subscriptions, $27,802,850; over subscription, $2,238,077. 

The Food Administration of York County entered upon its work about the middle of December, 
1917, with Grier Hersh as county administrator and D. D. Strite, administrator in the city of York. 
During the summer of 1918, D. D. Strite resigned and was succeeded by Harry S. Ebert. Miss Mary 
R. Koons was woman deputy adminstrator for York County. Mrs. R. S. Cannon was woman deputy 
food administrator for York City. Y. K. Keesey was legal advisor to the food administration. The 
problems of the administration in York County were varied, but were judiciously met. At no time 
was there serious objection to enforcement of the regulations to conserve food. In dealing with the 
butchers, bakers, wholesalers, and retail grocers, the policy of the York County administrator was to 
impress upon them that all the regulations were serious and should be obeyed. He had the most 
cordial co-operation of all the trades engaged in the distribution of foods. The few enforcements made 
were resorted to more as an exhibition of publicity than as punitive measures. The hotels, restaurants 
and boarding houses of the county co-operating with the food administration, by persistent oKservation 
of the food rules, saved 20 tons of sugar, 315 tons of meat and 520 barrels of flour. The bakers of 
York County suddenly called upon to produce a Victory loaf of bread, by united effort proved equal 
to the emergency and adhered strictly to all food regulations. Ry self regulation the grocers of York 
County prevented profiteering and by constant effort maintained the cereal substitutes and sugar 
regulations. 

In the peace parade held in York shortly after the signing of the armistice the Food administration 
was given the head of four divisions. The administration's formation consisted of the women's home 
economic committee, numbering about 100, the various deputies and about 300 grocers, hotel men and 
bakers. The office staff, with the administrator marched at the head of the parade. The women's 
division had a float representing Columbia feeding the Allies. The York County Fuel administration 
was successful in the regulation of the consumption of fuel in York County. Robert E. Gephart was 
the fuel administrator. He had the co-operation of the coal dealers of the county, as well as that of 
the general public. The order for heatless Mondays was strictly observed here. As a result of the 
observance of the fuel conservation regulations, York County saved a large amount of coal at that 
critical time when it was needed for the ships to carry munitions and supplies to the allied armies 
in Europe. All of York County's war activities organizations found patriotic response on the part of 
the people to every call made upon them to help win the war. There prevailed among the people of 
the county all through the period of the war that same spirit for loyal service to their country, as was 
displayed in the time of the American Revolution and during the Civil war. No county in the United 
States can show a more creditable record than that of York County in the world war. 




YORK A CITY OF THRIFT 

By Wadsworth M. George 

YORK, the county seat of York County, has in a period of one hundred seventy-eight years 
developed from a meager settlement of log cabins into a thriving industrial and agricultural 
center, having the distinction of being the third city in Pennsylvania in variety of its manufac- 
tured products. The city has within its hmits five hundred and twenty-five large and small industrial 
plants which turn out for the markets of the country and the world at large nearly one hundred kinds 
of manufactured products. It has long been the favorite statement of after-dinner speakers in referring 
to York as an industrial centre to declare that nearly every staple article of commerce from the tiny 
tack to monster refrigerating machines are produced in the enterprising city on the banks of the 
Codorus. This claim is no exaggeration. Its plows are used in South America, its water wheels 
harness the streams of the Scandinavian peninsula, its wagons track across the Transvaal veldt, its 
automobiles and motor trucks are used in Asia, its silks clothe fair women of many lands, its ice machines 
are used in every country of the tropics, its tacks are sold on both sides of the planet, and false teeth 
manufactured in the largest tooth factory in the world are shipped as far as New Zealand and Aus- 
tralia. The names of York manufacturers are to be found on machinery and structural steel and iron 
in Egypt and the Holy land. People of many races play upon fine toned musical instruments made in 
York. The largest, oldest and most modern commercial body plant in the world is located at York. 
Among the world's largest industries located in this thriving city are an ice machine factory, a wall 
paper mill, a chain plant and thp tooth factory already mentioned. York has not only the largest 
wall paper mill in the world but there are several other mills of less capacity manufacturing wall 
paper that place York on the map as one of America's leading centers engaged in this trade. 

During the four years of the world war, York manufacturing plants furnished munitions and other 
supplies to the armies of the warring countries. Foremost among important supplies furnished for 
the war were chains, vast quantities of which were shipped abroad, and army truck bodies of all 
kinds, also the official Red Cross Ambulance. A partial list of things made in York will be interesting 
to show that the claim that this city is third among the cities of Pennsylvania in variety of industries 
is not idle. There are made in York: Automobiles, awnings and tents, blank books, bricks, boots 
and shoes, chains, cigars, cigar bo.x labels, cigar boxes, brooms and brushes, rag carpets, rugs, carriages, 
dental supplies, electrical apparatus, fertilizers, files, flour, furniture, hardware, horse collars, harness, 
hats and caps, shirts, sweaters and underwear, knitting mill machinery, hosiery, baking machinery 
and equipments, powder mill machinery, fime, fime products, and cement, malt, beer and soft drinks, 
locks, safes and vaults, mattresses, monuments, proprietary medicines, flavoring extracts, silks, silk 
ribbons, surgical tape, neckties, suspenders, scales, ice machines, cultivators, chocolate, caramels, and 
other candies, orange sorters, cotton gins, fiber machines, harrows, gasofine tractors, turbine water 
wheels, spokes and wheels, smoking tobacco, traction engines, threshing machines, separators, pianos, 
violins, ukclcle.s, incandescent lamps, engines and boilers, rolled steel stacks, malleable iron, corrugated 
iron and metals, brass castings, tacks, iron and wire nails, wall paper, roofing paper, paper boxes, 
stereotype plates for books and magazines, car ventilators, canned goods, preserves and jellies, crackers, 
cakes, pretzels, bread, potato chips, wire cloth, toys, parts for automobiles, motor trucks, carriages, 
wagons, weeders, art glass windows, mirrows, washing machines, and automobile and truck bodies. 
The growth of York always has been steady, never spasmodic. While in various periods of its 
development from its early days down to the present, there have been booms, these have always been 
on a sound and substantial basis and never erratic or ephemeral. Figures showing increases in pop- 
ulation from 1820 down to 1919 demonstrate the steady manner in which York has grown. These 

[ 326 1 



figures are here given: 1820, 3,546; 1830, 4,216; 1840, 5.821; 1850,6,963: 1860, 8.605; 1870, 11.105; 
1880, 13,979; 1890, 20,795; 1900, 33,708; 1910. 44.750; 1919, about 65.000. according to police census 
directory compilation. 

During the periods between 1870 and 1880. and between 1890 and 1900, York's population was 
increased greatly through annexations, populous communities having developed nearby which were 
taken into the city limits. 

Since 1870, there have been built in York an average of five hundred houses a year. Since the 
entrance of the United States in the recent war the high cost of building material has. in a measure, 
halted building enterprises in York. The outlook, however, for future building is not discouraging. 
New industrial plants are being located here and with the restoration of normal conditions York will 
undoubtedly resume its building activities and it is reasonable to believe that the time is not remote 
when this city will attain the 100,000 mark in population. York of today has an area of 2250 acres, 
embracing 15,000 modern homes with 13,000 voters. The assessed valuation of real estate in the city 
is $32,347,578, according to the triennial assessment of 1918. 

York County being one of the tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing counties of Pennsylvania, 
heavy revenue is paid into the internal revenue office at York. The revenue receipts of this office 
exceed those of Lancaster and Harrisburg. In 1918. the sales of cigar, tobacco, beer and proprietary 
medicine stamps at the York internaJ revenue office amounted to $1,896,205.40. In nine months in 
1919, the stamp sales in the office amounted to 81,737,989.77, and it was said by the collector that 
there was prospect that the two million dollar mark would be reached in stamp sales. The volume 
of mail handled at the York postoffice has increased greatly from year to year in the past ten years. The 
normal increase has been seven per cent and in the past year the increase has gone beyond that average, 
having attained 12 per cent. 

There are within the limits of York sixty miles of highways, sixteen and one half-miles of which 
are paved, while the remainder of the streets are macadamized. The city has thirteen miles of electric 
railway, while five suburban trolley lines reach populous sections of York County. These lines are 
operated as one system by the York Railways Company. There are seventy miles of water mains, 
which supply filtered water to the inhabitants. The water supply plant is located south of the city 
and consists of a pumping station, filtration plant and two reservoirs with a capacity of 40,000,000 
gallons. The pumping station is equipped with engines having a pumping capacity of 10.000,000 
gallons daily. The filter plant capacity is 4.000.000 gallons daily. In addition to this water supply, 
the company operating the plant has in recent years constructed a large iznpounding dam of enormous 
capacity in Springfield township for use as a reserve supply in the future. Analysis by leading scien- 
tists show the city's water supply to be the purest in Pennsylvania and unsurpassed in the United 
States. After filtration the water is conducted by pipes to the clear water basin built of masonry 
and covered with arches and earth, holding over 2.000.000 gaUons. From the time the water leaves 
the filter plant until it passes by gravity through the large distributing system, it is constantly kept 
free from pollution and is delivered to the consumer clear, cold and sparkJing. The average result 
of many hundred tests of this filtered water shows an efficiency of 100 per cent as to turbidity, 100 
per cent as to color and 99.50 per cent as to the removal of bacteria. The water is therefore practically 
sterile. Its purity has eliminated cholera infantum and reduced the typhoid fever rate of the com- 
munity to a remarkable degree. 

The City's disposal plant and sewer system cost approximately $850,000 . 00. There are forty- 
nine miles of sewers. Collection and disposal of garbage costs the city §27,000.00 a year. The 
contract is held by a corporation operating a sanitary reduction plant outside the city. 

The York Gas Company has a plant of large capacity and a distributing system consisting of 
fifty miles of mains. The York Haven Power Company, with a plant located on the Susquehanna 
river at a distemce of twelve miles from York, supplies electrical power for part of the city's public 

f 327 1 



utilities, such as the street railways, the lighting and telephone systems. Manufacturing establish- 
ments are supplied with power at moderate rates. Current is transmitted by the plant at York Haven 
to a light, heat and power plant of the Edison Electric Light Company in York by means of a system 
of cables. 

The Edison Electric Light Company includes in its utilities a public steam heating system and a 
new and modern electrical plant which also furnishes power to the city's public utilities. With the 
several utilities enumerated above, York is well supplied with water, its streets and buildings are well 
lighted and its buildings are well heated. Among the many advantages of York are its pubhc markets, 
abundantly supplied with products from the fertile farms and gardens of a rich agricultural section. 
From the earliest borough days down to the present, a curbstone market has been conducted in Center 
Square, twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are in addition four large market houses 
open to the public at stated hours throughout the week, so that the citizens of York are peculiarly 
fortunate in the facilities offered them in the markets where prices in the past have been moderate. 
Even in the present day of high cost, food supplies of a great variety are sold in these markets at prices 
which are comparatively low when quotations in the public markets of other cities are consulted. 

The telephone service of York is supplied by the American Bell and the York Telephone Companies, 
whose lines extend to all important points in the county and are connected with the long distance 
systems. About four thousand telephones of both companies are in use in the city. The lines of 
two great competing telegraph companies, the Western Union and the Postal, enter York. The York 
Telephone Company recently installed the automatic dial system, which has greatly facilitated service. 
This company has a total of two thousand lines over the city and county and has installed the dial 
systems in five of its exchanges in the county. 

The York Volunteer Fire Department is one of the best organized and most efficient in the state, 
and is a credit to the city. The department consists of eight companies and each company has a fine 
modern fire-house. A modern fire alarm system is in use and all apparatus is motorized, most of it 
having been made in York and recognized as the best. The efficiency of York's volunteer fire depart- 
ment is demonstrated in the small losses from fires. In nine months in 1919 the entire losses from fires 
in the city did not exceed $6, .500. The Veteran Volunteer Firemen of York have an association and 
their own building in which they meet and which they use for social purposes. Two of York's fire 
companies, the Laurel and the Vigilant, are among the oldest in Pennsylvania, having been organized 
in colonial times. 

LTnder the Clark act, the commission form of government has been adopted by York. The present 
municipal government consists of a council of five members as follows: Mayor and presiding officer; 
superintendent of fianance and accounts ; superintendent of public safety ; superintendent of highways 
and public improvements; superintendent of parks and public property. In addition to the council 
there are these offices: city treasurer and city controller, filled by election, and city clerk, city solicitor, 
city engineer, director of public health, city assessor, sealer of weights and measures, chief of the fire 
department, assistant chief of the fire department, plumbing inspector, and clerk to the mayor, all 
filled by appointment. 

The pofice department of York is composed of fifty-five officers as follows : a chief of police, two 
sergeants, two house officers, twenty-four patrolmen, six traffic officers and one motorcycle officer. 

The school system of York is directed by a board of nine controllers which chooses a city super- 
intendent of schools, a superintendent of buildings and grounds, a medical inspector of schools, a 
solicitor, a secretary, a treasurer and tax collector and a truant officer. The teachers are elected by 
the controllers and number two hundred and twenty-three, including supervisory principals. The 
schools are well organized and are established in twenty-nine buildings, the total valuation of which 
is SI, 500, 000. In accordance with provisions of the state school code, the salaries of all teachers have 
been uniformly increased during the past year. Continuation schools have been estabUshed for boys 

[328 1 



and girls who are employed in industries. The York High School has a co-operative industrial course, 
which was one of the first to be introduced in Pennsylvania and which has become a model copied by 
other cities throughout the country. There are five manual training schools and various departments 
of special instruction, such as music, drawing, business and commercial courses, domestic science, 
sewing and garment designing, foreign languages, sex hygiene. A dental clinic for pupils recently 
was established. The total enrollment of the schools is seven thousand two hundred and eighty-four. 
Other educational institutions of York are the York Collegiate Institute, the York County Academy, 
founded in colonial times: two schools of business, a Hebrew school, and five parochial schools, 
consisting of four Roman Catholic and one Lutheran. One year ago the public school principals 
and teachers formed an organization for their advancement. This has become an eighty per cent 
organization with prospects of a one hundred per cent membership. There are two public libraries, 
the one in the York High School building and the other in St. John's parish house, including the Wood 
consulting library, containing many rare volumes. 

The twelve substantial banking institutions of York have resources aggregating $25,587,126.82, 
according to a compilation of the business of the city made in 1918, one of York's most prosperous 
yeeu's. These institutions consist of seven national banks, two state banks and three trust companies. 
These banks and trust companies are carefully managed, are progressive and have played an important 
part in the development of York industrially and commercially. In 1918, the aggregate deposits 
subject to check amounted to -88, 784, 065. 77, while the aggregate interest and saving deposits were 
§5,459,608.62. There are invested in industries in York more than .$22, 000. 000. The payrolls of 
the industrial plants aggregate nearly 810,000,000 a year. 

There are in the city eight public parks and plazas and a large public athletic field, which is owned by 
the city school district. York's public buildings consist of a court-house erected at a cost of 8500,000, 
a handsome federal building the cost of which was $450,000, a commodious municipal building, a jail, 
an almshouse, and a state armory. 

One of the institutions which has been a factor in widely advertising York is the annual exhibition 
known as "The Grand Old York Fair," which is conducted by the York County Agricultural Society 
organized in 1852. The society's exhibition grounds, located in the northwestern section of the city, 
embrace seventy-five acres of level ground on which there are a large office building used by the society, 
a main exhibition building, an annex, a horticultural hall, several smaller exhibition buildings, com- 
modious buildings for exhibiting poultry and livestock, a grandstand with seating capacity of seven 
thousand five hundred and a level half-mile race course, with ample stabling facilities. The value of 
the society's property is $550,000. The society since its organization has held sixty-six annual ex- 
hibitions with ever-increasing attendance. The fair is held four days in the first full week of October 
of each year and the attendance often reaches one hundred and eighty thousand for the four days. 
The York fair is known from coast to coast as the largest twenty-five cent fair in America. 

The theaters of York are ten in number, including an opera house, and a Keith vaudeville house, 
and represent an investment of $450,000. 

Where to go to church in York is a matter in which the rehgiously inclined visitor is offered ample 
choice, as there are eighty churches, missions, and religious organizations. Several of the churches 
were organized in colonial times and were among the first west of the Susquehanna river. Some of 
the handsomest church buildings in the state are to be found among those of York. Sixty per cent of 
the inhabitants have membersliip in the churches, which are liberally supported financially. 

Two daily newspapers are published in York: The Dispatch, issued evenings, with a circulation 
of fourteen thousand and the Gazette and Daily, a morning paper, with a circulation of fifteen thousand. 

York's commercial, civic and social organizations include a Chamber of Commerce, a Manufac- 
turers' Association, a Clearing House Association, the York Engineering Society, the York Traffic 
Club, the York Rotary Club, the Kiwanis Club, a Country Club, an Out Door Club, the York Motor 

[ 329 1 



Club, the Woman's Club, the Girl's Club, the Young Men' Christian Association, the Young Women's 
Christian Association, the Temple Club, the Knights of Columbus, the Lafayette Club, the Tramerick 
Club and numerous other clubs and societies. Of the numerous lodges and secret societies in York, the 
Masons, the Elks, the Odd Fellows, the Eagles, the Orioles, the Moose, and the Knights of Maltas own 
and occupy their own buildings. The American Federation of Labor recently purchased a building to 
occupy as a labor temple. 

Three lines of railroads enter York. A main hne of the Pennsylvania railroad, formerly the 
Northern Central, connects the north and the south, and the Frederick division of the Pennsylvania 
railroad, the Western Maryland railroad and the Maryland and Pennsylvania railroad offer additional 
shipping facilities. There are over one hundred passenger and freight trains that run out of York 
every day. Like the country at large, York at the present time is going through a period of recon- 
struction. The people are giving practical consideration to various local problems brought about by 
the war and are looking forward to peaceable solution. York never has had serious labor troubles 
and there never has been a riot to darken the pages of its history. The future of the city of thrift is 
promising at this time. Its business men are optimistic and unite in predicting an era of remarkable 
development in the next ten years.

THE SILENT HERO 

IT is natural to be thrilled at the sight of the man with the service stripe, wound 
stripe or medal, but did you ever stop to think of that army of men who, for 
one reason or another, were denied the privilege of wearing their country's 
uniform, but who, steadfastly remaining at their posts and putting every effort 
into their work, formed the indispensable backing to the fighting man? 

Those who were engaged in the production of supplies required by the Govern- 
ment, those devoting time and effort to the Liberty Loan campaigns, those who, 
at a great personal sacrifice, bought Liberty Bonds to their utmost, and all others 
busy in the many kinds of war work at home, contributed in no small way to the 
final victory and should not be forgotten. 

As you recall such a man to your memory, give him a cheer, even though it 
be a mental one, for he is the SILENT HERO.

GRIER HERSH 

MR. Grier Hersh, President of the York National Bank and the York Gas Company, figured 
prominently in the war activities of York County. He was born in York, January 29, 1863;

University in the class of 1884. In 1904 he was President of the Pennsylvania Bankers' Associa- 
tion and for two years was President of the Maryland Trust Company, Baltimore, Md. 

Mr. Hersh was appointed by the Governor, Chairman of the Council of National Defense and 
Chairman of the Liberty Loan Committee and also Federal Food Administrator for York County. For 
the responsible duties devolving upon him in these three positions he had been thoroughly equipped 
by his previous experience in business. He was always equal to the occasion in finding solutions 
for the perplexing problems that arose, using tact, abihty and good judgment in the performance of 
his duty. 

The money provided for expenditures in York County was used wisely in the work of the office for 
which it was intended, turning surplus funds over to the War Chest or Red Cross. The achievements 
of Mr. Hersh as a patriotic worker in the World War activities has received the appreciation which 
he merits. He was a member of the Advisory Committee. Liberty Bonds, Third Federal District, 
and in the Victory Loan campaign, was chairman of a group of twelve counties, including York. 
During the whole period of the war. Mr. Hersh united in this work without any compensation and in 
a way highly commendable.

JOHN C. SCHMIDT 



AT the beginning of the World War, Mr. John C. Schmidt. President of the Schmidt & Ault 
Paper Company, called a meeting of prominent York citizens, in order to form a local chapter 
of the American Red Cross. Speakers of national reputation from all over the country were 
invited to attend and immediately thereafter the York County Chapter of the American Red Cross 
was organized with Mr. Schmidt as Chairman. 

Mr. Schmidt devoted practically his entire time to building up the organization of the Red Cross 
in York County and continued his active interest in the work until the spring of 1918. when he was 
called to Washington to become Chief of the Chain Section of the War Industries Board. His duties 
with the War Industries Board required his presence practically all of the time in Washington and he 
was therefore then compelled to resign as Chairman of the York County Chapter of the American 
Red Cross. 

When it was decided to consolidate the various war activities of York County by the organization 
of the York County War Council. Mr. Schmidt was elected Vice-Chairman of this organization. 
Acting as such he helped to direct the work in a way that only a man of his executive ability could do.

ELLIS S. LEWIS 



MR. Ellis S. Lewis, President of the York Trust Company, York, Pa., was one of our most 
prominent and influential workers in a large field of war activities. His leadership and guid- 
ance in the many campaigns for raising money in York County during the World War were 
particularly valuable, due to his wide experience as a banker. 

Mr. Lewis was County Chairman of the first Liberty Loan campaign, and as such had general 
supervision over the work throughout the County. He was Chairman of the First District, comprising 
the City of York, the Boroughs of West York and North York, and the Townships of West Manchester, 
Springettsbury and Spring Garden, during the second, third, fourth and fifth Liberty Loan campaigns, 
and was a member of the Advisory Committee of the County Liberty Loan Organization. The 
efficient manner in which Mr. Lewis handled these drives, coupled with the generous response from 
the citizens of the County, sent the City and County "OVER THE TOP "' in every loan. 

In addition to this service, Mr. Lewis devoted much of his time to the War Savings Stamp campaign, 
as Director of the Banking Division of this organization in York County during the last year of the 
war. He was also a Director of the War Council of York County. In appreciation of i\Ir. Lewis's 
whole-hearted patriotism, his fellow citizens presented him with a handsome gold watch, with the 
following appropriate engraving on the case: "Presented by citizens of York County to Mr. Elfis S. 
Lewis in recognition of distinguished service in civic fife during the World War."

REV. C. M. Ehehalt. of Dallastown. Pa., was one of York County's most tireless workers

ORGANIZATION OF YORK COUNTY CHAPTER AMERICAN RED CROSS 

FOR a considerable number of months prior to the entry of this country into the war an organization 
had been formed in Philadelphia, known as the "Women's Preparedness League". .Mrs. 
George Wharton Pepper, Mrs. W. Childs Drexel and a number of prominent women of Phila- 
delphia were largely instrumental in forming this organization. Women representing each county were 
invited to attend and among those prominent in the beginning of this noble work was Mrs. John B. 
Hamme of York. Immediately after her return from Philadelphia the organization of the Women's 
Preparedness League was undertaken at York, Pa., and in a very short time put into full operation, 
so that when the t^nited States entered into the World War the women connected with the "Women's 
Preparedness League" arranged for a meeting, in order to organize a chapter of the American Red Cross. 

Under Mrs. Hamme's direction, they secured the services of one of the Red Cross organizers, 
Mr. A. B. Tamlyn of New York, who visited York to organize a branch of the chapter. A number 
of men and women representing the civic and charitable organizations of the city attended a meeting 
called in the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce, which had been generously tendered for this purpose, 
and after the need of such an organization was clearly pointed out and defined by Mr. Tamlyn, a 
chapter was immediately organized and application made for a charter to be known as the York 
County Chapter of the American Red Cross. 

The officers of the meeting were as follows: President. Mr. JohnC. Schmidt; Secretary. Mr. Ch.\s. 
N. Robinson. 

The original officers of the York County Chapter American Red Cross were as follows: President, 
Mr. John C. Schmidt: Secretary. Mr. G. W. Ry.\n: Treasurer. Mr. W. A. Keyworth. 

Few of those present fully realized the magnitude of the undertaking, nor did they dream of the 
success which would follow this organization, although the enthusiasm which grew with this work and 
through the war was foreshadowed at this meeting. One after another the representatives of the 
various organizations rose and pledged their membership to the Red Cross Chapter. The first need 
was to secure a place for workrooms, as at that time it seemed that the work would be largely the 
making of surgical supplies and hospital garments. This was met by Mr. Alexander E. McLean, 
who tendered to the Red Cross the free use of his former residence. No. .372 E. Market Street, a large 
brick dwelling house. 

The Hon. Nevin M. Wanner. President Judge of York County, acted as Chairman of the Member- 
ship Committee, and with the work of this strong committee, the organization rapidly grew until in 
a comparatively short time a membership of twelve thousand was reached. 

Mr. McLean's residence was equipped as a workroom and a storage room for the large quantities 
of material handled. Under Mrs. Hamme's direction, representatives of various churches would select 
a day and as high as twenty-five sewing machines were in daily operation making garments. A number 
of these sewing machines were donated by different organizations and the balance were purchased by 
the chapter. 

The purchase of materials was undertaken by the four leading department stores, namely, 
Mr. Alex. E. McLean, of Jas. McLean & Son; Mr. Max Grumbacher. of the Bon Ton Department 
Store; Mr. C. H. Bear. Jr.. of C. H. Bear & Co., and Mr. Jas. H. Rogers, of P. Wiest's Sons. These 
gentlemen purchased the material for the Red Cross without profit or compensation and delivered 
the goods to the Red Cross storeroom, which was also furnished by Mr. Alex. E. McLean. 

All garments were cut from the material and delivered ready for sewing to the workrooms at 372 
E. Market St. 

As the war progressed, increasing demands were made upon the Chapter and large quantities of 
wool were purchased and given to the devoted women of York to be knitted into sweaters, socks, 
helmets and mittens. Owing to the generous work of the women the demand on the Chapter for wool 

[373 1 



became so great that it was necessary to make a charge for the wool and even then the output of the 
York County Chapter has almost sufficient to meet the extreme demands placed upon it by the Di- 
vision Headquarters at Philadelphia. 

The original organization was largely composed of people from the city of York, because they 
were more numerous and more easily called upon, but the patriotism of York was not confined to the 
city by any means, and in a very short time branches and auxiliaries were scattered all over the county, 
at Red Lion. Dallastown. Felton, New Park. Cross Roads, Stewartstown. Delta, Glen Rock, Hellam, 
Wrightsville. York Haven, Manchester, Mt. Wolf, Emigsville, Dillsburg, Wellsville, Dover, Jacobus, 
Loganville, New Freedom. Shewsbury, Woodbine. Windsor, York, East Side; York, West Side; and 
in each auxiliary work rooms were established. Great rivalry existed between the various auxiUaries 
as to their production and size of membership and through the generosity of the newspapers monthly 
reports of the production from each auxiliary were published. 

The total income of the York County Chapter was at first Umited to one-half of the membership 
fee, the balance going to headquarters in Philadelphia, but it was soon seen that in order to supply 
sufficient material to meet the demands upon us and the activity of the workers, it was necessary to 
secure very much larger contributions. Division Headquarters notified the Chapter that they were 
expected to contribute a minimum sum of $75,000, of which twenty-five per cent, could be retained 
by the Chapter to finance its own activities. 

A splendid committee was formed, headed by Ex-Senator David P. KHnedinst. and composed of 
one hundred of the active business men of York. These were subdivided into ten committees of ten 
members each, including the chairman. Arrangements were made during the week of the drive so 
that the committees would meet in the restaurant of the Colonial Hotel for lunch, each man paying 
for his own lunch, and then amid great excitement and enthusiasm the Chairman of each committee 
would report the result of the last twenty-four hours. Occasionally, short, inspiring speeches were 
made and once we were delighted by an address made by the Baroness Huard, who was maintaining 
at her own expense a Red Cross Hospital in France. The sum hoped for, 875.000, was considerably 
over-contributed by the generosity of the people of York County, and the result of this campaign was 
a total subscription of 890,000. 

The growth of the Chapter and its activities were so rapid that it became necessary to reorganize 
under separate bureaus, with the chairman of each bureau as a member of the Board of Directors. 
Under this plan the Board was organized on December 10, 1917, as follows, 

Chairman John C. Schmidt 

Vice Chairman Francis F.\rquhar 

Treasurer Wm. R. Horner 

Executive Secretary Edw. S. Hengst 

Bureau of Development James Rudisill 

Bureau of Pulilicily Rev. C. M. Ehehalt 

Women's Bureau Mrs. J. B. Hamme 

Sub-divided under the following departments: 

Surgical Dressings Mrs. Geo. Ryan 

Hospital Garments Miss Lottie Glossbrenner 

Knifed Articles Mrs. S. L Adams 

Bureau of Hygiene Miss Netta Ford 

Bureau of Civilian Belief Wilmer C. Throne 

Bureau of First Aid . Dr. G. E. Holtzapple 

Bureau of Supplies Alex. E. McLean 

Bureau of Accounting John J. Landers 

Bureau of Junior Membership Edwin A. Barnitz

The Executive Cominittee consisted of the following: John C. Schmidt, Alex. E. McLean, 
and James Rudisill. 

The material for the workrooms was supplied to all of the auxiliaries and branches free of cost 
throughout the entire war, except for a period when it became necessary to charge for wool, because 
of the high price and the vast number of workers. When the finished goods were sent in each week 
by the twenty-two different auxiliaries they were carefully examined and inspected and packed 
and shipped to the Red Cross Headquarters in Philadelphia. All of the labor in the workrooms was 
given gratuitously, except for the clerical and stenographic work, and for one or two ladies who gave 
their entire time to this work and received a very trifling stipend. 

The York Transfer Company generously hauled all of the boxes free of charge, Mr. Alex. E. McLean 
supplying all the necessary labor and packing. 

The York County Chapter American Red Cross suffered a very serious loss when its President,

John C. Schmidt, was called to Washington, D. C, to serve on one of the War Boards, which office 
occupied nearly all his time and, therefore, necessitated his resignation from the presidency of York 
County Chapter, American Red Cross. The marked success of the Red Cross Chapter was, in a very 
large measure, due to the unselfish devotion, the inspiring enthusiasm, the unremitting zeal which 
characterized most forcibly the Red Cross work of the retiring president to the edification of the 
multitude of Red Cross workers and the general public. His sacrifices in time, health and wealth 
remain untold, but they form a part of that spirit which our fair land America calls all its own. 

Francis Farquhar, the Vice-chairman of the Chapter, was unanimously elected the successor of 
John C. Schmidt in the chairmanship of the Chapter. The choice was well made. The Red Cross 
work of Mr. Francis Farquhar is a lasting monument of his skillful, energetic, congenial leadership. 

Mr. Francis Farquhar's success in organizing the War Drive was so marked that, at the request of 
Mr. Scott, Chairman at Division Headquarters, he was invited to serve as the Chairman of the Mem- 
bership Drive for the entire Pennsylvania Division. In this he was also very successful. 

All of the War Relief Organizations, it was found, at frequent intervals, asked for contributions 
from the people, and it was therefore decided to form a War Chest, which would be the Treasury of 
the various War Relief Organizations. 

An appeal came from Division Headquarters for discarded garments to be sent to the Belgians and 
one hundred tons of good, serviceable garments were contributed, packed and shipped by the York 
County Chapter. 

In September, 1918, the epedemic of Spanish Influenza caused great suffering in this county and 
the number of sufl'erers was so great that it was beyond the capacity of the hospital to care for them, 
and, under the direction of the Red Cross, a hospital w as started in the buildings of the York County 
Agricultural Society, which was maintained from October 13th to November 20th, and aU of the 
expenses were borne by the Red Cross. 

With the close of the war, the need for surgical supplies, hospital garments, etc., ceased and the 
workrooms gradually closed, but the Bureau of Civilian Relief, under the direction of Mr. Wilmer C. 
Throne, continued the work of caring for the families and dependents of soldiers and sailors still in 
the service and with welcoming home the convalescent and disabled. 

Many noble and glorious deeds in the history of York County Chapter American Red Cross remain 
unrecorded on these pages for lack of space. But deep into the hearts and minds of the American 
people has been written a wonderful story of love and devotion, of service and sacrifice by the in- 
dustrious men and women-workers of the Red Cross who belong to the "Grand Army"' of the Unknown, 
the Unhonored, and Unsung, but without whom there should not have been the miraculous achieve- 
ments which crown to-day Our Country's efforts in the past World War. Truly may be said of them 

"Nor shall their glory be forgot 
While Fame her record keeps." 

The end of the war found York County with gold stars in hundreds of homes from which the 
soldiers had gone forever, but at such terrible cost great lessons were taught and learned. Thus the 
war gave to York County a precious, sacred token — oh! may it live forever — the Spirit of Team-work, 
for through the magnificent institution of the Red Cross it was that the people of York County as 
everywhere else in the U. S. A., were given to realize the vast possibilities and opportunities of doing 
good for the individual as well as the nation and mankind if all worked together methodically and 
harmoniously. When reflecting upon the wondrous deeds and achievements of the American Red

with Miranda: 

"0 Wonder! 
How many goodly creatures are there here! 
How beauteous mankind is!

That has such people in it!" 

Rev. C. M. Ehehalt 



HANOVER CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS 

EARLY in the History of the war a movement was set afoot to organize a chapter of the American 
Red Cross. The people of the town took an active interest in the project, and at a pubhc 
meeting completed the organization. Headquarters were established and the work proceeded 
vigorously, accomplishing very important results. 

In a short time a large number had joined the chapter to work with a united help during the entire 
period of the war. The organization will continue to assist in any other fields of duty that the Red 
Cross may be called upon to perform in the future. 

Immediately following the declaration of War, the citizens of the third district contributed to a 
special fund known as the "Comfort Kit Fund", for the purpose of purchasing comfort kits to be 
presented to each man leaving that district for military service. Approximately one thousand comfort 
kits were given away at a cost of §1.392.60. The kits contained the following articles : Wash cloth, 
safety razor, talcum powder, mirror, thread and needles, towels, adhesive plaster, soap, tooth paste 
and tooth brush, hair brush, comb, pins, and a tin cup. 

Emlet and Emlet. druggists. Hanover, Pa., generously furnished the committee practically all 
of the articles at cost, and the ladies of the Woman's Workrooms, Civic League building, joined in 
giving their services, making comfort bags and other articles. 

The following committee had charge of the fund and distribution of the kits: F. W. Weber, 
chairman, C. E. Phreaner. H. S. Ehrhart. T. J. O'Neill. J. C. Krebs and Dr. F. E. Beard.

YORK COUNTY AND THE WAR SAVINGS STAMPS 

AT the very outset of the war and especially after the first Liberty Loan Campaign, it became 
evident that Government Securities would necessarily have to be made popular. The proper 
financing of the war could only be accomplished by each citizen lending his savings directly 
to the Government rather than depending on banks. Trust Companies and other financial institutions 
to provide the Government with funds. 

The first popular government securities was the Fifty Dollar Liberty Bond, and the success in 
selling a bond of this relatively small denomination lead the Treasury Department to create the War 
Savings Stamp. This form of security had been used by the English Government for several years, 
but as a method of financing the government of the L nited States it was entirely unique. 

After the close of the second Liberty Loan, the War Sa^ ings Stamp was being promulgated, and 
Mr. 0. Roland Read was selected to head the work of selling them in York County. In the latter 
part of November, 1917, the work was outlined at a meeting held in Philadelphia under the direction 
of Mr. Robert Cassatt, who had been appointed by the Treasury Department to direct this work in 
Pennsylvania. At this meeting. Mr. Frank A. A'anderlip. President of the National City Bank of 
New York, and who was also the National Chairman for the sale of War Savings Stamps outlined the 
work of the local committees. 

LInhke the Liberty Loan issues the allotment of War Savings Stamps to a community was not 
computed on the bank resources of that community, but the goal was set at Twenty Dollars per 
capita for every man, woman and child in the community. York County was assessed on an approxi- 
mate population of 150,997 for a quota of 83,019,940.00. 

Upon Mr. Read's return from the meeting in Philadelphia, he solicited a number of prominent

following men; —

An organization of the County was effected similar to that of the Liberty Loan Committees. The 
thirteen districts were each organized under a Chairman and committees within the districts formed. 
Mr. J. W. Heinekamp took the work in District No. 1, City of York, assisted by Mr. Eugene Weiser of 
the Chamber of Commerce, and immediately started to work. Early in 1918, the district Chairmen 
met in York and were addressed by Mr. Edward C. Bendere, Assistant State Chairman under Mr. 
Cassatt. The following district Chairmen attended the meeting: —

The various district Chairmen succeeded in establishing throughout York County a total of four 
hundred and twenty -two agencies for the sale of War Savings and Thrift Stamps and about two hundred 
War Savings Societies. It now became apparent that to create local interest work activities and wide 
pubHcity were necessary. To do this a replica of the Old Court House which orginally stood in Center 
Square, at which Continental Congress met during 1788-89, was erected in the southeast angle of 
Center Square. Mr. Fred Dempwolf prepared the plans from a model of the Old Court House which 
stands in the Historical Society's rooms. Mr. S. F. Glatfelter volunteered his service as contractor in 
erecting the building. H. C. Hyatt contributed the hardware and glass; J. E. Graybill. the electric 
wiring and fi.xtures; Watt Brothers, the painting; the Pennsylvania Railroad, the bell and cupola; the 
Glen Rock Manufacturers of Glen Rock, the furniture, the York Safe and Lock Company, the safe; 
W. C. McLaughlin, the typewriter; J. W. Heinekamp, the cash register ; Charles Schaefer. the shrubs and 
plants, and Lamotte and Bond, insurance on the building and its fixtures. 



390 



The building was started February 11, 1918, and completed March 9, 1918. On March 16, 1918, 
the building was formally dedicated. Before the ceremony proper a parade of school children was held 
in which some five thousand children marched with their teachers. In the parade also were con- 
tingents of firemen, Pennsylvania Home Defence Police, and pageant groups, representing George 
Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, and a body of Continental Troops. At the completion of the 
parade the marchers returned to Center Square to witness the formal dedication and hear addresses 
by Mr. Hugentugler, Mayor of York, and Mr. Robert C. Bair. From then the "Little Court House," 
as it came to be called, was the center of all the War Stamp activities for both the City and County. 

From the opening of the Court House Mr. Read was assisted by his secretary, Miss E. G. Yake, 
and later Miss S. G. Frey and Miss M. Augenbaugh, as well as the many volunteers who made this 
their headquarters, and from here the campaign was conducted throughout the year. 

Some methods used to create interest were the War Savings Society, in which the members pledged 
themselves to purchase a certain amount of stamps each week, a contest among the agencies to see 
which would return the largest amount of sales, a window trimming contest, and the Thrift Army 
among the school children in the City, in which the members gained promotion in proportion to the 
number of stamps purchased and sold. 

To further promote the sale, clubs were organized to sell the stamps, each club having a day fixed 
when it should be in charge of the Little Court House. A spirited contest ensued among the following 
teams and was won by the team of the Bear Department Store, Captain Jeanette Zinn, who later 
died in the service in France: 

York Chamber of Commerce, 

Liberty Bell. 

Bear's Department Store, 

P. Wiest's Sons, 

Bon-Ton Department Store, 

McLean's Department Store, 

York Safe and Lock Company, 

McCrory's 5 and 10 cent Store, 

F. W. Woolworth Store, 

Regal LImbrella Store, 

Certain-teed Products Corporation. 

In the latter half of the year the following teams competed, and this second contest was won by 
the "On the Square" team headed by Miss Mildred Cochrane. 

American Chain Company, 

"On the Square", 

D. G. Dery Silk Mill, Society No. 96,

Independent Order of Red Men, 

Certain-teed Products Corporation.

In the latter part of May, 1918, the State Organization planned to hold a "Pledge Day" throughout 
Pennsylvania, on which day pledges would be soUcited to purchase the stamps. At this time Mr. 
Heinekamp, the City Chairman, felt unable to give sufficient time to make this work a success and 
resigned his post. His resignation was accepted and Mr. Walter McBlain became City Chairman. 
Mr. iMcBlain immediately began to divide the city into small sections and place in charge of each 
section a community secretary, with the view of conducting a personal house-to-house sohcitation 
throughout the remainder of the year. 

This system gave the sale in the City great impetus. During the entire year York County had 
maintained the position between fifth and fifteenth among the counties of the State, being well ahead 
of the average county sales at all times. 

June 28, 1918, in accordance with a Presidential proclamation, was made National War Stamp 
Pledge Day. On that day every one of the four hundred odd school-houses of the County became a 
meeting place of the residents of the school-house districts. Speakers were provided for these meetings 
and pledges to buy War Savings Stamps were secured. The majority of these school-house meetings 
were well attended and the pledges made were well lived up to. 

At the meeting in Weigelstown school-house, the speakers sent from York secured approximately 
pledges for 81,000. Mr. Joseph Naylor. a resident of the community, was greatly disappointed with 
this showing and next morning rode over the country side and succeeded in securing approximately 
SICOOO in pledges. As the year progressed it became evident that great activity would be necessary 
if the county were to reach the quota assigned to it. There was inaugurated, \vith the aid of the 
York Chamber of Commerce, a campaign known as the "Save York's Honor," in which an effort was 
made to secure the sale of 81,000,000 worth of War Savings Stamps. The committees and soUcitors 
organized under Mr. Alex. McLean, as Chairman, succeeded in selling stamps to the amount of 
§500,000. A Woman's Sale Week was conducted by the Women of the City with considerable success. 
At the close of the year stamps had been sold in York County to the amount of 82,110.705.00, 
or about $15 per capita. Although this fell short of the 820 per capita goal, it must be remembered 
that during this same period the citizens of York County over-subscribed four Liberty Loans, main- 
tained extensive local war work activities, and through the agencies of the War Chest contributed 
without a campaign to every one of the National War Activities. 

Too much praise can not be given to the Postmaster and Assistant Postmaster of York and the 
Postmasters of the smaller communities. The postmen and rural carriers, together with postal 
employees, carried on throughout the entire year a campaign of their own soliciting pledges and selling 
stamps after their regular work was finished. Had it not been for their aid and co-operation the success 
in York County would not have been as great as it was. Recognition must be given to the excellent 
co-operation of the Labor Organizations of this city who assisted the committee in every possible 
manner under their president, Mr. Alfred A. Billet. 

Mr. 0. Roland Read conducted the campaigns throughout the year, giving the sale of War Savings 
Stamps practically all of his time and attention without any compensation. During the year many 
miles were covered throughout York County attending meetings and interviewing the District 
Chairmen. 

The little Court House in Center Square, after serving the purpose for which it was designed, was 
closed at midnight December .3, 1918. It has been presented to the City of York and now stands 
on Farquhar Park as a memento of York's 1918 War Savings Campaign and a First Aid Station for 
the citizens of the community. 

It was decided by the Treasury Department to carry on the War Savings Stamps during 1919, 
and make it a permanent part of Governmental finance. In March, 1919, a committee was organized, 
consisting of James Rudisill, Chairman: Miles V. Minnich, Vice-Chairman; Miss M. R. Koons, As- 
sociate Chairman: J. C. Eisenhart, Francis Farquhar, Grier Hersh and Philip Throne, Secretary, to 

[392 1 



promote the sale for the year. With the impetus of the war removed and the poHcy of the Treasury 
Department to abondon the intensive selling campaign the sales in 1919 are small when compared 
with the previous year. York County, however, ranks well with corresponding counties in the State 
and it is evident that the War Savings Stamp will continue as a part of our National Economy.

THE WAR COUNCIL OF YORK COUNTY 

The War Council of York County was an active organization in the conduct of the war work of 
this section. In it were co-ordinated all of the war-time activities. The Liberty Loans, the 
Red Cross, Thrift Stamps, the Food Administration, the Council of National Defense, the 
Woman's Council and all of the active organizations engaged in war work were combined in the War 
Council. Its orgin was the result of the first year's experience in war work. Grier Hersh, who had 
been Chairman of the Council of National Defense and also Chairman of the Liberty Loans during 
the year of 1917. conceived the idea of co-ordinating the efforts of those engaged in war activities. 

During the month of January, 1918, Mr. Hersh made the suggestion to several members of the 
Liberty Loan Executive Committee that the War Council be organized. After some discussion as to 
the best way of forming such an organization and getting interested in its activities those forces of the 
County of York which would help in the most positive manner, it was decided that the following 
organizations should be represented: — Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., Ministerial Association, Knights of 
Columbus, Manufacturers' Association, Federation of Labor, Y. W. C. A., Engineering Society of 
York, Woman's Council of National Defense. York Clearing House Association. American Jewish 
Relief Committee, Chamber of Commerce, Public Safety and Unorganized Labor. The plan was to 
have each one of these bodies appoint five delegates to represent them at a meeting to be called in 
the Court House. In turn each one of the five were to designate one of their number as a representative 
on a Roard of Directors. 

This meeting was hold in the County Court House, February 26, 1918. The meeting was opened 



400 



by the Imperial Quartet, under the direction of H. A. Bailey, Secretary of the Y. M. C A. "Keep 
the Home Fires Burning" and "We're Tenting Tonight" were sung by the Quartet. 

P. A. Elsesser called the meeting to order and Judge N. M. Wanner was nominated and unanimously 
elected Chairman of the meeting. The entire audience sang "My Country 'Tis of Thee". Dr. A. T. 
Taylor of the First Presbyterian Church made an invocation. James Budisill was elected Secretary 
of the meeting. Grier Hersh explained the aims and objects of the War Council. The several organ- 
izations interested were represented by the following delegates : — 

Bed Cross, Francis Farquhar, Bev. C. M. Ehehalt, W. C. Throne, Mrs. J. B.Hamme; Y. M. C. A., 
W. L. Glatfelter, G. H. Whiteley, Sr., S. Fahs Smith, P. A. Elsesser, A. B. Nissly; Ministerial Asso- 
ciation, Dr. A. T. Taylor, Dr. A. A. Long, Bev. J. W. Thompson, Bev. A. C. Shue, Bev. F. A. Bupley; 
Knights of Columbus. George Marlow, Eugene Shuman, Charles Borgel, Wilham Allen ; Manufacturers' 
Association, G. H. Whiteley, Sr., Bobert Gephart, Horace Keller. J. L. Gerber; Federation of Labor, 
John B. Aumen, Alfred H. Billet, Wilham Eckenrode, Winfield Sleeger, Emory Fehls; Y. W. C. A.,

George L. Jessop; Woman's Council of National Defense, Mrs. A. S. McConkey, Miss Annie Gamble, 
Mrs. Forry Medlar, Miss Emma Cochran, Mrs. John B. Hamme; York Clearing House Association,

0. B. Bead, J. W. Heinekamp, D. D. Strite, James Budisill; Unorganized Labor, Adam Garver, W. J. 
Fisher. 

The principal business transacted at this meeting was the adoption of a constitution and by-laws 
for the guidance of War Council. The War Council of York County was adopted as the name of the 
Association. The by-laws also provided that the object for which the association was formed relates to 
the war. Specifically they are to assist in raising all necessary war funds, in the sale of Liberty Bonds, 
in the sale of War Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps or any other method of raising money by the 
Government. The by-laws provided that the direction of the association should at all times be under 
the control of a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors was empowered to create offices and 
bureaus, appoint committees and agents, prescribe their duties, and adopt rules and regulations for 
their own government. The Board was also given the power to elect additional members-at-large, 
who were endowed with all the powers of the members elected by the association. The number was 
limited to six. It was also provided that the Board of Directors should elect, from their own members, 
an Executive Committee of five. However, all of the actions by the Executive Committee were 
subjected to revision or approval of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors was directed to 
elect, from its own members, a chairman who was known as the Head of the War Council, and also a 
Vice-Head of the War Council to act in the event of the absence or disability of the Head of the War 
Council. The by-laws also directed that appropriations other than for clerical expenses should only 
be made by the Board of Directors, under the following rules: (1) The call must be endorsed by the 
War or Navy Department. (2) The allotment of York County must be reasonably equitable as com- 
pared to all allotments of other communities of equal population. (3) The payment must be ap- 
proved by the Board of Directors at a regular or special meeting thereof. To Francis Farquhar is 
due the credit of having made the fu'st outline of the by-laws. How well this work was done is 
evidenced by the successful work of the War Council in York County. 

The first meeting of the Board of Directors was held on Friday evening, March 1, 1918, at the 
York National Bank. The meeting was called to order by James Budisill and Grier Hersh was elected 
temporary Chairman. The following members of the Board were present: P. A. Elsesser, George 
Marlow. Alfred H. Billet, Mrs. L. M. Hartman, Mrs. A. S. McConkey, James Budisill, ElHs S. Lewis, 
Dr. J. H. Comroe, V. K. Keesey, Grier Hersh. George Whiteley, Sr., was nominated and elected 

[4011 



Head of the War Council. J. C. Schmidt was elected Vice-Head of the War Council. W. R. Horner 
was made Treasurer and James Rudisill elected Secretary of the Board as provided by the by-laws. 
0. R. Read and J. W. Heinekamp were elected additional members to the Board. The following 
committee was appointed to suggest a plan of organization: V. K. Keesey, 0. R. Read, J. W. 
Heinekamp, Ellis S. Lewis, James Rudisill. 

On March 12th. the second meeting of the Board was held and the York Committee made a report 
recommending several bureaus, and the following members were elected to head the proposed sections: 
Campaign Manager, for the sale of Liberty Bonds, Grier Hersh: City Liberty Bond Chairman, Ellis 
S. Lewis, and Vice-Chairman of the County, W. D. Brougher, Wellsville. It was also decided that 
the County should be divided according to the plan of the Public Safety Committee of Pennsylvania. 
This plan provided that the County should be divided into thirteen districts, — each of the districts 
to be represented by a Chairman, and these districts in turn were to be divided into uniti=' of school- 
house districts. 

The following is a list of the districts: — District No. 1, York City, North York, West York, Spring 
Garden, West Manchester and Springettsbury Townships. District No. 2, Hanover, West Manheim, 
Manheim, Heidelberg and Penn Townships. District No. 3, Dallastown, York Township and Spring- 
field Townships, Loganville, Seven Valleys and Yoe Boroughs. District No. 4, Red Lion, Windsor 
and Lpper Chanceford Townships. District No. 5, Peach Bottom, Fawn, and Lower Chanceford 
Townships, Delta, Fawn Grove and Felton Boroughs. District No. 6. Hopewell, East Hopewell, 
North Hopewell, Stewartstown, Winterstown. and Cross Roads. District No. 7, Shewsbury Township 
and Codorus Township, and Glen Rock, Railroad, New Freedom. Shewsbury and JefTerson. District 
No. 8, North Codorus, Jackson and Paradise, Spring Grove and York New Salem. District No. 9. 
Dover, Washington and Warrington, Dover and Wellsville. District No. 10, Franklin, Carroll and 
Monaghan, Dillsburg and Franklintown. District No. 11, Lewisberry and Fairview, Lewisberry, 
Goldsboro, and York Haven. District No. 12. Hallam, Lower Windsor, Wrightsville, Hallam, East 
Prospect and Yorkana. 

At this same meeting Mrs. Carey Etnier and James G. Glessner were elected additional members 
of the Board of Directors. The Chairman also appointed the following committee to recommend to 
the Board a sum of money to be collected by the War Council and the manner in which the work was 
to be done: J. C. Schmidt, George Marlow, P. A. Elsesser, Dr. Julius Comroe, Dr. A. T. Taylor, Mrs. 
L. M. Hartman and James Rudisill. 

On March 26th, a meeting was held in the rooms of the Manufacturers' Association at which G. H. 
Whiteley. Sr., Head of the War Council presided. The report of the committee appointed to formulate 
a plan for raising the War Fund was read. This report provided that the sum of $350,000 be raised 
for the purpose of defraying the expenses of the War Council and also to provide funds to meet the 
allotment given to York County by the American Red Cross or any other of the general bodies en- 
gaged in relief or philanthropic war work. Francis Farquhar was made Campaign Manager to collect 
this sum. 

Some doubts were felt whether or not the Second District would participate in the work of the War 
Council. Grier Hersh, Francis Farquhar and James Rudisill were a committee to consult with the 
authorities of District No. 2. After a conference held in the rooms of the Elks Association in Hanover, 
the leading men of the Second District declined to participate in the organization and consequently 
this district was not included in the War Council of York County for any purpose. 

tender the direction of Francis Farquhar a most vigorous campaign was waged throughout the 
remaining twelve districts. The York Chamber of Commerce printed a booklet which outlined the 
plan for raising money. This plan was designed by Mr. Farquhar and provided for a most thorough 
canvass of all the residents of the twelve districts. Mr. Farquhar, assisted by members of the Roard 
of Directors, made addresses in many parts of the County to large audiences where the purposes of 

[402 1 



the campaign were explained. One of the features of the campaign was a dinner at the Colonial 
Hotel, to which leading business men of the County were invited. After an address by Mr. Farquhar, 
who told of the necessity to defeat Germany and of the huge task in accomplishing such a purpose, 
the sum of §1 10,000 was subscribed to the War Chest. 

At the March meeting of the Board of Directors, P. A. Elsesser, 0. R. Read, Grier Hersh, V. K. 
Keesey and James Rudisill were elected as the Executive Committee of the War Council. With one 
exception the members of this committee have served to the present time. At the end of 1918, 0. R. 
Read resigned and Francis Farquhar was elected in his stead. 

The following bureaus were organized for the active work of the War Council:

Of these bureaus the selhng and soliciting was active in all of the work until the end of the war. 
The members assisted in organizing the Liberty Bond teams and also in selecting the captains of the 
teams which collected the War Chest. The Transportation Bureau also served until the end of the 

[ 403 1 



war. As Chairman, J. C. Eisenhait with a true patriotic spirit devoted much time to securing; auto- 
mobiles for the transportation of speakers and suppHes to remote corners of York county. So effective 
were his efforts that it was unnecessary to hire any automobiles during any of the campaigns. Indeed, 
the automobile service at times was more efficient than some other of the bureaus. On one occasion 
a meeting was to be held in Shrewsbury, but for some reason was postponed and the Liberty Loan 
Office at York notified. 

Mr. Eisenhart secured the services of two automobiles and sent three soldiers, three musicians and 
one speaker to fulfill the engagement. The night was cold and blustery. L'pon their arrival in Shrews- 
bury they were unable to find any one who knew of a meeting in that town on that particular evening. 

The Liberty Chariot, a truck which was covered with a canvas frame, covered with electric lights 
and suitably decorated for Liberty Bond purposes was also sent to all sections of the county. This 
machine contained a moving picture outfit, a Delco Lighting Plant and an organ. L pon arriving at 
the scene of activity the musicians would begin the exercise with singing and would then show moving 
pictures appropriate to either Liberty Bond, Red Cross or Thrift Stamp purposes. On several oc- 
casions it was necessary to proceed up some hiU backward owing to the overload which the Liberty 
Chariot carried. On several occasions after the crowd was assembled it was impossible to show the 
pictures, because of some defect in the mechanical equipment. Here the ingenuity of both the speakers 
and the musicians was taxed so as to keep the crowd in a pleasant mood and not to discourage the 
purchase of Liberty Bonds or the contribution of funds for war purposes. 

The Bureau on Publicity and Speakers was also more or less active, but upon the sudden death of 
R. E. Winchester in an automobile accident, this bureau was reorganized. 

The Bureau of Finance suppfied the first money to cover the cost of raising a War Chest and in 
every way was a help and assistance in the work of the War Council. So successful was the work of 
raising the War Chest that the total sum of $415,525.58 was pledged. Of this sum firms and in- 
dividual citizens of York subscribed .$25,159.08. The employees of the City subscribed $88,882.05 
and the County pledged $101,484.45. At the time of this writing, early in October, 1919, $380,9 10.00 
has been collected. 

The following leaders of the districts in the County were untiring in their efforts to make successful 
the raising of the War Chest: 

Dallastown — I. H. Roj.\hn

On these men, who gave unselfishly of their time and talents, developed the work of selling Liberty 
Bonds and the other activities. In every instance they were highly successful and did much to establish 
the enviable record of York county in the World War. 

Arrangements were made with the depository for interest on daily balances and the amount of 
this interest covered all of the executive expenses, so that there was no cost in administering this 
huge sum. At a meeting of the Executive Committee held on April 13th, in the rooms of the Engineer- 

f 40 4 1 



ing Society of York, it was recommpiuled E S. Hengst bo appointed Executive Secretary of the War 
Council. Mr. Hengst has held this position throughout the entire war and served with ability and 
faithfulness. At this same meeting it was recommended that the first appropriation be made from 
the War Chest. The sum of .|.3,000 was appropriated to the York National War Savings Committee 
for expenses in selling War Stamps and Thrift Stamps. A similar amount was given to the Public 
Safety and Food Administration of the County and another appropriation of $1,500, was given to the 
Liberty Loan Organization. These recommendations were approved by the Board of Directors. 

In every instance the allotments of York county to such objects as the American Red Cross and 
those organizations which comprised the United War Work campaigns were over-subscribed. This 
financial support enabled the American Red Cross of York county not only to send large amounts 
of surgical dressings and all kinds of hospital garments for the use of the army, but during the "Flu" 
epidemic a special appropriation of $25,000 was made to the York County Chapter of the American 
Red Cross to assist in the fight against that epidemic. The entire cost of the Emergency Hospital, 
which was located in the \ork County Fair Grounds, was paid from this fund and when the disease 
subsided indigent patients were cared for in tents at the York Hospital. When the distress in the 
Near East became so acute $30,000 was given to this cause. The work of the fourth Liberty Bond 
Campaign during this epidemic was also given valuable aid by an appropriation of sufficient funds to 
permit of such advertising in all of the county papers as to make the response to this huge loan to 
be in excess of the amount asked of the county. During this campaign all house-to-house canvasses 
were dispensed with in order to fight the spread of the disease. Following is a fist of the appropriations 
from the War Council to the present time.

The Boy Scout movement in York county was also greatly assisted by the appropriation oC S 1,000 
to the National Council of that organization. The work done by the boys during the various campaigns 
throughout the county was most helpful. These boys not only performed excellent service for their 
country, but were in turn given an understanding of the duties and obligations of American Citizenship. 

The by-laws of the War Council provided that an annual meeting should be held of the Council 
itself during the month of January in each year until the end of the War. At the annual meeting 
of 1919, the same Board of Directors was re-elected and the Board also re-elected the officers who 
served during the year 1918.

THE SCOUTS OF YORK COUNTY DURING THE WAR 



RAY F. ZANER, Seoul Eiecuthe. 




S' 



I HORTLY after the United States entered the war, the scouts 
in York City en-masse marched to the City Hall and there 
pledged to the Chief Executive their services, such as 
they were prepared to render. Scouts do not receive the 
training of soldiers, nor are they trained for military service, 
but being trained to be alert, ready to help where possible 
they take advantage of every opportunity "To Do A Good 
Turn". 

It was not very long until the first call came, and so the 
scouts of York County made their debut in assisting with the 
circulating of Patriotic Pledges through the shops and mills, 
on streets and in stores. 

Then came the organized efforts to raise funds for the Red 
Cross, Y. M. C. A.. Knights of Columbus, War Chest, and 
the various Liberty Loans. In all these the scouts took a very 
active part. During the several drives, the scouts busied 
themselves in tacking up posters on the telephone and telegraph 
poles of the county, placing placards and circulars throughout 
the stores, banks, shops and mills. During the First Liberty 
Loan the scouts co-operated with the various committees and teams in the sale of bonds. The Drum 
and Bugle Corps were used a number of times to furnish martial music as a stimulus to both workers 
and citizens. In the remaining Loan Campaigns the scouts acted as gleaners after the reapers and 
solicited for bonds for a period of from three to six days after all other workers were through. It is 
pai-ticularly encouraging to know that the scouts on this plan sold over a milhon dollars worth of 
bonds in York county during four Loans. Then let it also be said to the credit of the scouts, that 
practically all of the posters and printed matter used in the various loans and campaigns were dis- 
tributed and posted by them. This was in itself a tremendous task and one in which the boys entered 
with their whole hearts, realizing that a successfully advertised Loan would mean much toward its 
success. 



406 



The Boy Scouts of the Nation through the National organization offered their services to the 
government in acting as dispatch and message bearers. As a result of this, thousands upon thousands 
of circulars and pamphlets were distributed in York county, explaining various phases of the war, 
and much of it designed to counteract the German propoganda so freely circulated. 

Then came the call for black walnut for gun stocks. A direct appeal from the President of 
the United States started the scout movement on the trail of black walnut and in a short time thousands 
of feet had been reported from this county alone. When the reports were all in from over the nation, 
there was enough walnut pi'o\'ided and more. 

When it was discovered that peach and other fruit pits could be used in the proper making of 
gas masks, a call was issued to the scouts to assist in the collection and saving of this material. Boxes 
and barrels were provided, circulars and placards were distributed and posted in conspicuous places 
with the result that soon there were a plenty of the material. 

In the matter of the War Saving Stamps the scouts were especially active. Not only did they 
put up the posters and distribute literature, but they helped in the selling of them. Over seventy-five 
thousand dollars worth of stamps were sold by the scouts throughout the county. 

During the Liberty Loan Campaigns scouts served as orderlies at the several headquarters and 
rendered valuable aid in this capacity. 

There were a number of patriotic parades where scouts assisted the police in handling the crowds 
and caring for the traffic. 

The influenza epidemic during the war furnished the opportunity for the scouts to really demon- 
strate their worth to the community and to put into real practice some of the many things which 
they had been taught. In the erection of the Hospital on the Fair Grounds, the scouts assisted the 
carpenters, erected the tents, placed equipment, and acted as guards until relieved by the militia. 
After the hospital was opened, scouts served as assistants on the ambulances, orderlies in the hospital, 
handled the telephones and moved patients, etc. So much was the work appreciated that it brought 
forth an official letter of thanks to each scout who in any way had helped. These scouts served without 
compensation and it was estimated had saved the city a couple thousand dollars. 

The war is over but our work is not. There will ever be a growing need of helping mold the coming 
manhood of our Nation and the Boy Scout Movement is doing all it can through its organization to 
enroll the boys of America and to train them in the principles of unselfish service, that they may grow 
physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. 



ACTIVITIES OF THE YOUNG MENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

IMMEDIATELY after war was declared, on the 6th of April. 1917. John B. Mott was requested to 
organize the National War Work Council of the Young Men's Christian Association to do Y. M. 
C. A. work for the soldiers on their way to camps, in camps, on their way overseas, and later in 
the fields of Europe. 

A conference was held in June. 1917. at the Bellevue-Stratford in Philadelphia, at which several 
members of the Board of Directors of the local Association were present. The needs of the work were 
presented and a local campaign was inaugurated which netted over .S7.000.00 for the National W^ar 
Work Council. The further need for funds and workers became imperative and in November. 1917, 
the forces were organized in the county, and a fund of 846,000.00 was raised. The Association also 
assisted in the promotion of the War Chest Drive in 1918. 

[ 407 1 



From September, 1917, the local Y. M. C. A. building was kept open every day in the week so any 
soldiers coming in could be accommodated with full privileges of the Association at any time, and this 
policy is being continued. During 1918, when large groups of soldiers were in the city over week ends, 
the Frysinger property, which was purchased in April, was used for dormitories The Ladies" AuxiHary 
secured a large number of cots and at times as many as one hundred and fifteen were accommodated 
in the building over a Saturday night. On Sunday morning the Ladies' Auxiliary provided breakfast 
for those who stayed in the building and others who happened to come in time for breakfast. One 
hundred and fifty was the largest number served at one time. In this way a total of fifteen hundred 
were accommodated with night lodging and eighteen hundred with meals. 

Messrs. Edward Leber, E. H. R. Polack and E. A. Barnitz were appointed a committee to arrange 
entertainment for soldiers in local homes over week ends, and at times as many as three hundred soldiers 
were provided for in this way. The Board of Directors, the Co-operative Committee and the member- 
ship in general rendered willing service. 

The Ladies' Auxiliary deserves special credit, since the matter of providing and taking care of cots 
and bedclothing, serving luncheons, and entertaining the soldiers, fell mostly to their lot and was 
handled efficiently by them. They were ably assisted by Committees from the Young Women's 
Christian Association, Girls' Club and ladies from different churches. 

Two hundred and nine members were in the service. Four of this number died, as follows: 

Private Walter L. Fitzgerald, 48th Aero Squadron, died of .spinal meningitis in 

France January 9. 1919. 
Private Latimer Sayers, Battery A, Second Trench Mortars, died of pneumonia, 

February 11, 1918, at Fortress Monroe, Va. 
Private Sherman W. Leifer, Company A, 6th Engineers, killed in action, July 15, 1918. 
Sergeant Harry E. Strayer, Headquarters Company 112th Infantry, died of pneumonia, 

in France, October 18, 1918. 

The officers of the Association during this period were: 

P. A. Elses.ser, President. 

Geo. H. Whiteley, Vice-President. 

E. W. Gardner, Secretary. 

Edward Leber, Treasurer 

H. A. Bailey, General Secretary. 

The officers of the Ladies' AuxiHary: 

Mrs. George L. Stallman, President. 
Mrs. George E. Neff, Vice-President. 
Mrs. Virginia Johnson, Vice-President. 
Miss Alice Neff, Recording Secretary. 
Miss Flora Immel, Corresponding Secretary. 
Mrs. E. a. Rice, Treasurer. 

H. A. Bailey, 
General Secretary.

THE WORK OF YORK THEATERS DURING THE WAR PERIOD 

IT is to be said of the owners and managers of York's theaters and moving picture houses that 
they were not found Iacl\ing in doing their bit to assist the government in the prosecution of the 
war. When their support and efforts were needed they always responded loyally. They proved 
a helpful factor in all local work, and drives in the interest of the war. Along with the newspapers they 
were the chief means of publicity in the various Red Cross, War Savings, War Chest and five Liberty 
Loan drives. Their theaters and screens were always at the disposal of the York County Council of 
National Defense. Four Minute Men were given the privilege of addressing audiences at all shows. 
Special slides and reels furnished by the government were exhibited and often featured. Through the 
potent medium of the theaters and picture shows much advertising was given the Food Administration 
and its plans for conserving food, while the success of various recruiting drives of the army, navy 
and marine corps was in part due to the help of York's theatrical and amusement managers, who had 
their own organization for war activities. This organization was affiliated with the Council of National 
Defense and was always on the job. For their sincere patriotism and creditable work, the managers 
received a special letter signed by President Wilson and were awarded roll of honor certificates. The 
theaters thus honored were: 

The York Opera House, N. Appell, Manager. 

The Orpheum Theater, N. Appell, Manager. 

The Hippodrome Theater, Kline Henderson, Manager. 

The Jackson Theater, F. E. Barry, Manager 

The Scenic Theater, J. Hill Snyder, Manager. 

The Wizard Theater, 0. C. Deckman, Manager. 



***5 



SPEARING ACTIVITIES OF THE FOUR MINUTE MEN 

AT the outset, the patriotic speaking in York County was conducted under two different organiza- 
tions but under one head. In motion picture theatres and other places of amusement the 
speakers were Four Minute Men, while all other speaking was conducted by the Speaker's 
Bureau of the York County Committee of Public Safety. 

The Four Minute Men were a branch of the Committee on Public Information created by executive 
order of the President, while the Committee of Public Safety was a branch of the Council of National 
Defense created by Act of Congress. OrigineJly, in order to conform to the Revolutionary precedent, 
the State and Local LTnits of the Council of National Defense in Pennsylvania were designated as 
State and County Committees of Public Safety, but later, in order to conform in part with the practice 
of other States, the designation was changed to Council of National Defense and Committee of Public 
Safety. 

The organization of the Four Minute Men and of the Speakers' Bureau in York County was iden- 
tical, the same person serving as Chairman of Four Minute Men and of the Speakers" Bureau. At the 
outset, Mr. Grier Hersh undertook both Chairmanships in addition to his other war activities, but 
prior to the Second Liberty Loan campaign he retired in favor of Robert C. Bair, Esq., who acted 
until April, 1918, when George Hay Kain, Esq.. was appointed Chairman of the York County Division 

[409] 



of Four Minute I\Ien and of the York County Speakers' Bureau. Those organizations took part in 
the Third Liberty Loan campaign. Afterward all speaking activities were placed in charge of the 
Four Minute Men as such, under which organization the Fourth Loan was carried through. The 
speaking during this campaign was much hampered by reason of the influenza quarantine. On 
Christmas Eve, 1918, the Four Minute Men ceased to exist and the members received certificates of 
honorable discharge. 

Practically the same persons constituted the York County Division of Speakers' and Meetings, 
during the ^ ictory Loan drive. 

In the campaign for the Third Loan, singing and other forms of entertainment were used as a part 
of the program, but the formal organization of a Singing Division did not take place until the Fourth 
Loan campaign, when Mr. M. B. Gibson as Chairman, organized the singing force. Mr. Gibson 
also acted as Chairman of the Singing Division during the Victory Loan campaign. 

During the several campaigns, the local forces were augmented by soldiers detailed to the county 
by the State organization, which also sent other speakers from time to time for special occasions. 

A roster of the organization for each Loan campaign is impracticable, both for want of space and 
because in large measure there would be a mere repetition of names. There follows, however, a list 
of the persons who made up, from time to time, the Four Minute !\Ien and the Speakers' Bureau; 
and also a roster of the organization for the Victory Loan campaign. It must be understood, however, 
that because of the somewhat stringent requirements for enrollment as an actual "Four Minute Man", 
some whose names are included under that heading were not actually enrolled as such at Washington 
through no fault of their own, but because of absence, illness, or similar unavoidable occurrences. 
It must also be remembered that many persons who volunteered their services from time to time but 
who did not serve regularly, are not included. And fmally, the need for brevity requires the 
ommission of the names of the members of the various church choirs which served en masse under 
the singing leaders of the Victory Loan Drive.

GENERAL JOHN SEDGWICK POST No. 37, G. A. R. 

GENERAL John Sedgwick Post No. 37, Department of Pennsylvania, Grand Army of the 
Republic, was organized April, 1866, and was known as the Boys in Blue, but after a few years 
disbanded. A re-organization was effected by members of the parent body as a part of the 
(i. A. R. as follows: Instituted May 8, 1878, with the following charter members: William H. Lanius, 
Lewis H. Eppley, Henry M. Davis, Wellington G. Erwin, Hiram S. McNair, David E. Myers, Samuel 
I. Adams, Joseph U. Test, Abner W. Minnich, Thomas Minnich, George L. Koons, Robert Burrows, 
Henry T. Goodling, Samuel Simons, Samuel Myers, Samuel Everhart, George Horn, Edward R. Herr, 
Charles H. Busey, Lafayette Schlosser, William H. Swartz, William H. Bastress, George Graybill, 
William F. Eichar, Andrew B. Jack, Matthew J. McKinnon, John Burg, August C. Stieg and G. P. 
Spangler. 

The Post held its first meeting on the third floor of the Jordan Building, Centre Square. Captain 
William H. Lanius, through whose efforts the Post was successfully organized, was chosen the first 
Commander. The Post grew very rapidly and at the present time there are about one hundred and 
twenty names of comrades on the roll in good standing. There are over five hundred names on the 
Memorial Roll of comrades who have died since muster. Many have been transferred to other Posts, 
and others have severed their connection in other ways. 

In 1892, the encampment of the Department of Pennsylvania, held at Gettysburg, honored the 
Post by electing Captain Edward L. Schroeder to the office of Senior Vice Department Commander, 
the second highest office in the Department. 

There are active posts at Hanover, Delta and Wrightsville, but death has so thinned the ranks 
of the veterans that most of the posts in the smaller towns have been disbanded.

UNITED SPANISH WAR VETERANS 

COLONEL Edwin B. Watts Camp No. 68, United Spanish War Veterans, of the Department of 
Pennsylvania, was instituted June 10, 1914. The instituting officers were: Captain E. Laub- 
enstein and Corporal William P Messinger, representing the National Association. 

The following were installed as the first officers of the Camp, Commander, William H. Baublitz; 
Senior Vice-Commander, Joseph Beaverson; Junior Vice-Commander, Thomas F. Heberly; Adjutant, 
James J. Logan; Quartermaster, Charles A. Lutz. The organization took place in the law offices of 
Logan and Logan. The camp is well equipped and uniformed, with a good live membership. 

The object of this Camp is to keep alive the memories of the War with Spain, the Insurrection in 
the Philippines, and the China Boxer War. To promote the best interests of those who took an 
honorable part in these wars. To encourage and spread universal liberty and equal rights and justice 
to all men. To encourage and assist in promoting patriotism in the public schools. To bury our 
deceased comrades with military honors. To see that Memorial Day is properly observed. 

The War with Spain was not a long war, but it was a war which made the United States a first- 
class world power, which was just proved by the World War now about ended. The war with Spain 
was for the liberation of Cuba from over four hundred years of Spanish misrule and slavery. Cuba is 
now a properous nation, and happy in her freedom. Not only Cuba is happy, but Porto Rico, Guam 
and the Philippines, as a result of that short war, came under the LInited States rule. The boys of 
1898 were, therefore, the first to fight for a foreign people, and to establish a Repubhc government 
in a foreign land. 

During the World War, Colonel Edwin B. Watts Camp buried with military honors the brave 
boys who died while in service and who were buried in the cemeteries in York. On one occasion we 
had two funerals in one afternoon, a Lieutenant at Prospect Hill about 2 P. M., and a private soldier 
at Greenmount at 3:30 P. M. An auto was used for quick transport. We also buried a member of 
the Grand Army, giving full military honors. Colonel Edwin Watts Camp made no distinction; a 
soldier is a comrade, whether a Civil War Veteran or a World War Veteran. We have all fought for 
ideals that are right and just and for universal principles of Freedom, Patriotism and Humanity.

YORK POST No. 127, AMERICAN LEGION 

YORK, PENNSYLVANIA 

IN order to take up a work which was left unfinished by the sudden termination of the World War, 
soldiers, sailors and marines of this city and vicinity decided upon the formation of a local post 
of the American Legion. After several meetings had been held at which the objects and purposes 
of the organization were discussed, a conference was called by the temporary presiding officer. Attorney 
William H. Kurtz, for Wednesday evening, August 7, 1919, in the Grand Army Hall. An election 
was held which resulted as follows: 

G. MoRviN Peters, Post Chairman. 

John C. Hoffman V ice-Chairman. 

Curtis A. Thomas, Secretary. 

Russell B. Wehler Treasurer. 

Jason B. Snyder Allotment. Insurance and Employmenl Officer. 

Mayor E. S. Hugentugler addressed the members of the Post at this meeting on the matter of a 
community welcome home celebration for the heroes of the World War. He suggested that a com- 
mittee be appointed to recommend a date which was later fixed as November 11, 1919, commemorating 
the date of the signing of the armistice and the closing of the World War. This was the largest and 
most elaborate welcome home celebration ever held in York County. 

The meetings of the York Post of the American Legion, which is chartered as Post No. 127 in the 
State of Pennsylvania are held in their new quarters in the basement of the Rupp Building, Center 
Square. These meetings are held every two weeks on a Wednesday evening. 

By a series of smokers and get-together meetings the Post has grown from a small group of ex- 
service men to a large and influential organization. At the present time there are enrolled in the local 
post about 1600. 

Posts have been established in the following towns throughout the county, Hanover, Spring Grove. 
Glen Rock, Stewartstown and York.

HAROLD H. B.\IR POST No. 14, AMERICAN LEGION 

HANOVER, PENNSYLVANIA 

AS early as May, 1919, tho former service men of Hanover and \ icinity, realizing that it was to 
their interest as well as to the interest of the community that some sort of an organization be 
formed, held a number of meetings for the formulation of plans for such an organization. 
These meetings were all exceptionally well attended, in spite of the fact that the majority of the men 
who had been in the service had not yet been released from duty, and great enthusiasm was aroused. 
From the very beginning it was evident that such an organization was not only possible, but that it 
would have a large membership and would have the hearty support of every citizen of the town. 

As officers of the temporary organization R. Y. Naill was chosen chairman, Edwin W. Kline, 
vice-chairman, C. F. Ehrehart, secretary, and Howard Dillow, treasurer. 

By a vote of the men it was planned that they should participate in the Memorial Day parade 
as a body, and in preparation for this a number of practice drills were decided upon. Edwin W. Kline, 
a former Lieutenant of Infantry, was unanimously chosen drillmaster, and through his efforts and 
with the help of every man in the organization there were over two hundred former service men in 
line on that day. From this time every man, as soon as he was mustered out of the service and returned 
home, was only too eager to join his name to the already large list. 

From a mere temporary organization there grew up a Post of the American Legion, composed of 
men from Hanover and the immediate vicinity, the first in York county to receive its charter from the 
State, and the fourteenth charter in the State. This charter was received during the month of June, 
1919, and its provisions and by-laws adopted at a meeting held on July 1st. The membership con- 
tinued to grow from day to day as the men returned to civilian life, until at the time of the National 
Convention in November, 1919, it has reached over three hundred with dues paid in full. 

Interest in the Hanover Post has never weakened, but instead has become more keen, until to-day 
Harold H. Bair Post No. 11, American Legion, Hanover, Pennsylvania, has the enviable reputation 
of being one of the most active Posts in the State, with a representation which is surpassed by very 
few towns of an equal size. As a result of festivals, minstrel shows, etc., there is quite a fair amount 
of money in the treasury, and plans are now well under way for the purchase and equipment of a per- 
manent home for the Post.
