Did you know?

Did you know the day after the death of President Lincoln was declared a national day of mourning?

Henry Harbaugh, professor of theology at Mercersburg, Pa., addressed the residents of Clear Spring. His discourse was called "Treason and Law." The audience was so moved by the speech, it was printed into a small booklet.
