L. Swatara Twp. Hobbyist Is Soldier In Movie ‘Gettysburg’

Just after daybreak on July 1, 1863, a Union cavalry unit commanded by John Buford chanced upon a division of Confederate infantry marching eastward along the road from Cashtown toward Gettysburg.

The Confederates were headed to town to try to commandeer some needed footwear from a Gettysburg shoe factory; the Union cavalry was on a scouting mission to locate any Confederate units that might be in the area. The two forces clashed in a brief but bloody skirmish almost within sight of the town before the outnumbered Union horsemen withdrew from the contest.

Turner Pictures has produced a monumental new film about the great Battle of Gettysburg that’s likely to become a film classic.
