Moved from Sachem.

Hmmm...
I looked through my Kaufman and Brock field guide.

It looks like a female Sachem, Atalopeded campestris, p. 302.

and on pg. 316, saw the eastern form, female of Leonard's Skipper (Hesperia leonardus), but that would be a long shot given your location and the general rarity of that species overall.
