laurae@herald-mail.com Ben Troupe, 7, decided to wear his gray wool cap instead of his blue one Saturday. The young Civil War buff wanted to match the garb Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart wore 140 years earlier when he raided Ben's hometown of Mercersburg, Pa. Residents of the small town are gathering this weekend to remember that day when the reality of the war hit home for those living north of the Mason-Dixon line.

Christopher Shank, R-Washington, respectively, are in response to an incident in Sharpsburg in November where the Maryland State Police executed a no-knock search warrant at an address, but the Washington County Sheriff did not know about the operation until after it had begun.

As it did in other areas across the United States, the Civil War brought battles, gruesome tales and acts of destruction to what is now the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, but back then was part of Virginia. For West Virginia, the conflict was to have lasting implications. Virginia seceded from the Union in 1861 following decades of sectional conflict between leaders of Eastern and Western Virginia. While other states occasionally saw calls for “dismemberment,” it was only Virginia that went through such a split, according to The West Virginia Encyclopedia.
