I'm there frequently...

In fact, the Franklin County Party Chair is running for State Senate.

Please send me $$ to take Chambersburg for the Blue!

8. Ah, Chambersburg.
Burned by a contingent of Confederate troops because Thaddeus Stevens, one of the most prominent abolitionists, owned an ironworks there, if I remember correctly.

12. Do you mean this how we sacked the shiite newspaper?
Is this in reference to the parallels between our "new military" and
confederate war crimes.

"I" am too young to remember chambersburg... but i do recall more
recent war crimes and, in case history decieves, our current war
criminal leadership.

But i can, like the average american, curl up with my case of
cognitive dissonance and plunge myself in to a bit of history gossip,
while claiming to be educated by it.
