The infamous "War of the Roses", was a civil war, that took place between the two houses of King Edward the III... the House of Lancaster vs. the House of York. It was a terribly bloody battle with many war atrocities. The Lancaster side was symbolized by a red rose, while the York side by a white rose. While there weren't many bloody atrocities at Stumpf Field in Lancaster PA,  or Memorial Field in York, there certainly was much intensity when the two met.
