During the American Civil War (1861 to 1865), Harrisburg was an imporant training and logistical center for the Union Army. This made it a target for the Confederate Army of North Virginia (led by General Robert E. Lee) in two invasions - the Maryland Campaign (1862) which was halted at the Battle of Antietam, and the Gettysburg Campaign (1863) which got as far as Sporting Hill, just 2 miles (3 kilometers) from Harrisburg.

In 1979, the worst civilian nuclear accident in US history occured at the nuclear powerplant at Three Mile Island in the suburb of Midtown. The accident which began on March 28th, and resulted in a partial core meltdown of one the reactors.
