History[edit] American pioneer John Armstrong Sr.
John Armstrong Sr.
laid the plan for the settlement of Carlisle in 1751. He fathered John Armstrong Jr., who was born in Carlisle in 1758. Scots-Irish immigrants settled in Carlisle and farmed the Cumberland
Cumberland
Valley. They named the settlement after its sister town of Carlisle, Cumberland, England, and even built its former jailhouse (which Cumberland
Cumberland
County now uses as general government offices) to resemble The Citadel in the English city.[8][9] In 1757, Colonel Commandant John Stanwix—for whom Fort Stanwix
Fort Stanwix
in upstate New York is named—–made his headquarters in Carlisle, and was promoted to brigadier general on December 27 of that year. Stanwix had sat in Parliament as Member for Carlisle during the 1740s. Later during the French and Indian Wars, the Forbes
Forbes
Expedition organized in Carlisle in 1758, and Henry Bouquet
Henry Bouquet
organized an expedition there for Pontiac's War, the last conflict of the war, in 1763. Carlisle served as a munitions depot during the American Revolutionary War. The depot was later developed into the United States Army
United States Army
War College at Carlisle Barracks. Revolutionary War legend Molly Pitcher died in the borough in 1832, and her body lies buried in the Old Public Graveyard. A hotel was built in her honor, called the Molly Pitcher Hotel; it has since been renovated to house apartments for senior citizens. Carlisle was incorporated as a borough a few years after the war on April 13, 1782. Carlisle continued to play a part in the early development in the United States through the end of the century: In response to a planned march in favor of the United States Constitution in 1787, Anti-Federalists
Anti-Federalists
instigated a riot in Carlisle. A decade later, during the Whiskey Rebellion
Whiskey Rebellion
in 1794, the troops of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania
and New Jersey
New Jersey
assembled in Carlisle under the leadership of President George Washington.[10] While in Carlisle, the president worshiped in the First Presbyterian Church at the corner of Hanover Street and High Street. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, developed Carlisle Grammar School in 1773 and chartered it as Dickinson College—the first new college founded in the newly recognized United States. One of the college's more famous alumni, the 15th U.S. president, James Buchanan, graduated in 1809.[11] The Dickinson School of Law, founded in 1834 and affiliated then with Dickinson College, ranks as the fifth-oldest law school in the United States and the oldest law school in Pennsylvania. A general borough law of 1851 (amended in 1852) authorized a burgess and a borough council to administer the government of the borough of Carlisle.

Leading up to the American Civil War, Carlisle served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. During the war, an army of the Confederate States of America, under General Fitzhugh Lee, attacked and shelled the borough during the Battle of Carlisle on July 1, 1863 as part of the Gettysburg Campaign.[12] A cannonball dent can still be seen on one of the columns of the historic county courthouse.

Other[edit] Carlisle is famous to many people for its car shows, put on regularly by Carlisle Events throughout the spring, summer, and fall at the Carlisle Fairgrounds. In addition to the regularly scheduled shows there are specialty shows, including the GM Nationals, the Ford Nationals, the Chrysler Nationals, the Truck Nationals, Corvettes at Carlisle, and the Import/Kit Car Nationals. Most likely because of its location at the intersection of two major trucking routes ( I-81
I-81
and I-76), air pollution within the borough often falls within the range considered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" [i.e., children, the elderly, and people with respiratory or heart disease]. The pollutant typically involved is PM2.5, particulate matter composed of particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter.[citation needed] The Central Pennsylvania
