Mercersburg in Franklin County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
As Stuart’s forces left town, they met Steiger on his way home and seized his wagon and horses. Because he protested, they made him their prisoner to join the ten other men they had arrested earlier in Mercersburg. Some hours later Steiger escaped and returned to “Bridgeside” late that night.
