Riassunto: The Pennsylvania border county of York and its people stood smack in the middle of things - where South met North - in the American Civil War. That war roiled York County from its tip near the capital of Harrisburg to its 40-mile base at the Mason-Dixon Line. Union soldiers moved to the South after seasoning and staging on county soil. Train cars dripping with blood carried many wounded and diseased soldiers back to a mammoth U.S. military hospital on York parkland. Thousands of York County residents donned blue uniforms, and untold scores died. The war marched onto county soil in those terrible days before the Battle of Gettysburg. The four-day Confederate visit drained money, food, supplies, and horseflesh. Soldiers in blue and gray died in fighting at Hanover and Wrightsville. Gettysburg came next, and county residents gathered food and supplies to treat the wounds of battle, a short 30 miles away. In "Civil War Voices from York County, Pa.", Scott L. Mingus Sr. and James McClure use oral histories, letters, diaries, and newspaper accounts to tell the stories of York countians in those bleak days, 150 years ago. They give a vibrant voice to those living, serving, and dying in a border county in this most tumultuous period in America's history.
Scott L. Mingus Sr. is a scientist and executive in the global paper industry, and holds patents in self-adhesive postage stamps and bar code labels. The southeastern Ohio native is a graduate of the paper science and engineering program at Miami University. He was part of the research team that developed the first commercially successful self-adhesive U.S. postage stamps.
The York, Pa., resident has written several articles for Gettysburg Magazine and has nine Civil War books listed on amazon.com. His book Flames Beyond Gettysburg was a finalist for one of the 2011 U.S. Army Heritage Foundation's Distinguished Writing Awards. He maintains a blog on the Civil War history of York County, Pa. (yorkblog.com/cannonball), and is a local Civil War tour guide for the York County Heritage Trust.
He also has written six scenario books on miniature wargaming and was elected to the hobby's prestigious Legion of Honor in 2011. His great-great-grandfather was a drummer boy for the 51st Ohio Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War.
