Some More On Oyster Point, Pennsylvania

It got its namein the 1860s because the Oyster family owned a tavern there. Confederates advancing on Harrisburg in June 1863 after the surrender of Mechanicsburg were somewhat stopped here after a two-hour cannon barrage toward Harrisburg in which some shells reached as far as the Church of God on 21st Street. //// --Old Secesh
