andrews@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT Brig. Gen. John D. Imboden's retreat from Gettysburg, Pa., to Williamsport in 1863 is said to have included about 13,000 Confederate soldiers, 2,000 drivers, 2,000 cavalrymen, 200 doctors and 10,000 horses and cattle. When Stanley F. Imboden of Lititz, Pa., traced his great-great-uncle's 42-mile path on Saturday, the caravan included about five motor vehicles and one horse team. More than 4 inches of rain - heavier Friday, but still steady on Saturday - might have kept the event tiny, but the few who took part were satisfied.

Jekyll and Hyde reared its head in Waynesboro on Friday night. The Waynesboro Indians played what seemed to be two games of basketball - showing promise in the first half but then crumbling under Cody Kiefer's double-double performance for Gettysburg as the Warriors hung a 64-50 loss on the Indians. “We knew the size factor was going to be a problem for us all year,” Waynesboro coach Tom Hoffman said. “(Kiefer) can do things in space, he can do things in double-team. He's just a tough matchup and we couldn't contain him.” Following in the footsteps of Greencastle-Antrim's Joel Zola - who torched Waynesboro (1-3, 1-2)

Gettysburg resident Daniel Lady left his farm July 1, 1863, and found a gruesome scene when he returned a few days later. The property on modern-day Hanover Road had become the only Confederate field hospital north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Surgeons threw body parts out Lady's parlor windows, and wounded men continued to seek shelter in his barn after the troops left. “They found dead soldiers that he and his 11-year-old son had to bury,” said Barb Mowery, president of the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association, which took ownership of the farm in 1999.

There has been nothing like it before or since in American history - father against son, brother against brother, a horrible strife that divided families as well as states. The Civil War changed America profoundly, “leaving us a different people in everything,” said a New York Times editorial. It also was the stuff of legend. Generals became larger than life, battle stories grew to mythical proportions and the Civil War captured the national imagination. A century and a half after the last shots were fired, the battle between North and South remains in the American consciousness.

Long lines of two armies - one gray, one blue - came face to face at this small crossroads town on July 1, 1863, sparking the Civil War's greatest battle. For three hot days, it raged, etching names like Little Round Top and Pickett's Charge into the national memory. Waves of rebels beat against Union strongholds on high ground, fell back and surged forward again, leaving in their wake a sea  of carnage. Sometimes, the two sides were so close, one soldier recalled, that hostile gun barrels almost touched.

The compass, measuring chain and hand-drawn map displayed by Bob Angle and Wayne Twigg during a Gettysburg (Pa.) Festival Fringe Event on Sunday bore little resemblance to the tools the men use in their daily work as surveyors. In fact, when volunteer surveyors with the Mason & Dixon Line Preservation Partnership set out in recent years to locate stones placed by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in the 1760s, they used GPS technology to document what they found. Still, the more primitive tools used for five years in the 18th century established the boundary between Maryland and Pennsylvania that put an end to land skirmishes.

After watching a 6-1 lead dwindle to a one-run advantage in the fifth inning, Greencastle-Antrim baseball coach Eric Shaner gave his team an ultimatum: Hang your heads, or answer the bell. The Blue Devils heeded their coach's word as they took advantage of four walks in the inning and poured on nine runs to defeat Gettysburg by the 10-run rule, 15 - 5, on Wednesday in the Mid-Penn Colonial. “We told them right before the bottom half that we go can one of two ways,” Shaner said.

Elizabeth Ward was stellar again inside the circle for Greencastle-Antrim, firing a one-hit shutout as the Blue Devils blanked Gettysburg 13-0 in a Mid-Penn Colonial softball game. Ward, getting more starts in place of the injured Kelsey Brewbaker, struck out six and walked three. She has been a pivotal component in the Blue Devils' early-season success. “She's really stepped up for us with Kelsey down,” Greencastle head coach Mark DeCarli said. “She's a huge part of the team now and hopefully she keeps improving and keeps getting stronger.” As Ward dominated inside the circle, Greencastle's bats were still sizzling from Monday's 14-0 romp over Camp Hill.
