When the United States became embroiled in the Civil War 150 years ago, people such as farmers, schoolteachers and business owners were caught in the chaos. Saint James School was not immune from the ravages of the war, according to Ted Camp, who talks about the school being in the middle of “Route 1 of the Civil War,” in the path of retreats from major battles, including those at Antietam and Gettysburg. One of the times Saint James School found itself in the middle was in 1863, after the Battle of Gettysburg, Pa., when Union troops were pursuing Confederate troops and both sides reached the Episcopal boarding school five miles southwest of Hagerstown, according to Camp, who is chairman of the school’s history and religion department.
