(VIDEO) In June 1863, Harrisburg braced for an invasion. The Confederate troops of Lieutenant General Richard S. Ewell steadily moved toward the Pennsylvania capital. Capturing Carlisle en route, Ewell sent forth a brigade of cavalry under Brigadier General Albert Gallatin Jenkins. After occupying Mechanicsburg for two days, Jenkins’s troops skirmished with Union militia near Harrisburg. Jenkins then reported back to Ewell that Harrisburg was vulnerable. Ewell, however, received orders from army commander Lee to concentrate southward—toward Gettysburg—immediately. Author Cooper H. Wingert traces the Confederates to the gates of Harrisburg in these northernmost actions of the Gettysburg Campaign.
(VIDEO) Ever wonder what your legislators do when they’re not being shown on PCN? We followed Sen. Mike Brubaker (R-Lancaster, Chester) around for a day that included everything from a Senate Finance Committee meeting (which he chairs), a Senate voting session, and meetings with the Russian delegation and constituents. We had a chance to meet with staff and learn their functions in his Capitol and district offices.

In “City Contented, City Discontented” award-winning journalist Paul Beers (1931-2011) reveals how contemporary Harrisburg came to be what it is. Beers charts the capital’s development from a City Beautiful, with its celebrated public spaces and premier educational institutions, through the fractures of race riots and the catastrophic challenges of flood and near nuclear meltdown. Michael Barton, author and editor of several Harrisburg histories, has transcribed and edited the original newspaper columns with his Penn State Harrisburg students.
