Chambersburg, Pa., has the distinction of being the only Northern city that was burned by the Confederate Army during the Civil War. While this unfortunate claim to fame has been forgotten by many today, it was quite a happening in 1864. Decidedly Union Chambersburg had stations of the Underground Railroad in and around town. In 1859, John Brown spent the summer in Chambersburg while planning his ill-fated raid on Harpers Ferry, W.Va. After the September 1862 Battle of Antietam, which took place just down the road in Washington County, Md., Chambersburg served as a Union hospital and supply center.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- It's not much, an eyesore, really -- plastic-covered lean-to, two old barrels and some rusty pipe fashioned into a wood-burning stove for cold nights, a cracked podium, chairs, a soiled bouquet of silk roses, a dirty American flag.But, for the 260 members of United Auto Workers Local 695 who have been on strike for nearly 2 1/2 years, the lean-to collection is their sanctuary. They come here not only to maintain their picket, but also to renew their strength and commitment to a labor action that has made them outcasts in their own town.
