The Federal OccupationEarly in the war, townswomen met at the Henry H. Kirk house, just north of here, to sew uniforms and blankets for Confederated soldiers after Kirk bought sewing machines and patterns in St. Louis, Missouri. When the 9th Pennsylvania Cavalry hoisted the Stars and Stripes in Springfield on March 25, 1862, however, the Federal occupation began and shaped everyday life here for the rest of the war.
