Events Along The Emmitsburg & Waynesboro TurnpikeOn June 22, 1863, a skirmish erupted at Monterey Pass when Company D of the 14th Virginia Cavalry attacked portions of Union cavalry under the command of Captain Robert Bell, Captain Samuel Randall, and several members of the Gettysburg Home Guard. The Confederate skirmishers scouted the woods on foot along the Emmitsburg and Waynesboro Turnpike, forcing the militia to retreat toward Fairfield, using Maria Furnace Road, where the chase ended at dusk.
