Description

The Skirmish of Oyster Point was fought from June 28-29 between Union and Confederate forces near present-day Camp Hill and was part of the Gettysburg Campaign. The goal of the Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania in June of 1863 was to capture the state capital of Harrisburg. However, this plan would never come to fruition as Confederate and Union forces clashed near Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, forcing Jenkins and his troops to make a retreat out of Cumberland County.
