camping for nearly two months at Munfordville, the 79thPennsylvania left camp to head to Bowling Green. It was On This Day in 1862
that the Lancaster County Regiment started the tough march on rough roads in

Pennsylvania Infantry had been organized in Lancaster. The men were mustered in on 19
September 1861 for an expected three year enlistment under Colonel Henry
Augustus Hambright. They were mustered out on 12 July 1865.
This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events.
