“Grudges and Loyalties Die so Slowly”

Contested Memories of the Civil War in Pennsylvania’s Appalachia

(p.269) Chapter 10 “Grudges and Loyalties Die so Slowly”
Reconstructing Appalachia

Robert M. Sandow

University Press of Kentucky

The mountaineer Joseph Lansberry mortally shot a government official before escaping arrest with the help of his community. The Northern Appalachian experience was not a mirror of wartime life in mountain communities below the Mason–Dixon line. Rural Northerners in the mountains of Pennsylvania, just as counterparts in the Confederacy, experienced the war from the vantage points of their homes and communities. Wartime actions led to contested memories and legacies of the conflict among the bitterly—sometimes violently—divided communities of the Pennsylvania mountains, linking attitudes and developments from the antebellum age to the fractious period of Reconstruction.

Keywords:   Joseph Lansberry, Mason–Dixon, Pennsylvania, legacies, antebellum
