The Battle Of Sporting Hill – The Northernmost Engagement Of The Gettysburg Campaign

On June 30, 1863, the Battle of Sporting Hill, an engagement which occurred right before the Battle of Gettysburg, is considered to be the northernmost conflict between Confederate and Union soldiers during the Gettysburg Campaign. Some historians deem the conflict to be a skirmish due to the lessor amount of troops involved, compared to better known battles.
