Harpers Ferry National Historical Park

Company A, 22nd New York State Militia, photographed near here during the summer of 1862. Note the house with a cannon in front of it behind the soldiers. It is still here today.

In May of 1862, during Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign, Union soldiers constructed a line of defenses parallel to the top of the ridge to protect Harpers Ferry from attack from the west. Throughout the rest of the Civil War, hundreds of Federal soldiers encamped on this slope, protected by the earthworks stretching across the crest of Camp Hill.
