What a historically ignorant LTE. The Confederacy did not seek to "overthrow" the U.S. government. It wanted to LEAVE the U.S. government. And BTW, Chambersburg was burned in retaliation to the vicious scorched earth campaign of Union Major General David Hunter in the Shenandoah Valley in May and June 1864. Pay back and all that...
