Posted By on October 18, 2017

The above banner is part of the Hometown Heroes Banner Program to honor veterans of all wars at Elizabethville, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.

Although there were hundreds of men who served in the Civil War from the Elizabethville area, Jonas Swab was the only Civil War veteran so honored with a banner.
