PRESIDENT'S CALL FOR TROOPS.- The Civil War was begun on the morning of the 12th of April, 1861. The military forces of South Carolina, under the leadership of General Robert Beauregard, then began to fire upon Fort Sumter, which was under the command of Major Robert Anderson. The President of the United States, finding the laws of the country opposed and the execution thereof obstructed in seven Southern States** "by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings or by the powers vested in the marshals by law," issued a proclamation on the 15th day of April, 1861, calling for seventy-five thousand militia of the several States of the Union, "in order to suppress said combinations and to cause the laws to be dully executed;" and therein he appealed "to all loyal citizens to favor, facilitate and aid this effort to maintain the honor, integrity and existence of our national Union, and the perpetuity of popular government and to redress the wrongs already long enough endured." A call was made on Pennsylvania for sixteen regiments. Two regiments were wanted with in three days, inasmuch as the city of Washington was entirely unprotected and a sudden dash upon it was strongly threatened.



FIRST COMPANIES.

- Among the first troops to respond to this call were the Ringgold Light Artillery (Captain James McKnight) of Reading, the Logan Guards (Captain J.B. Selheimer) of Lewistown, the Washington Artillery (Captain James Wren) and the National Light Infantry (Captain McDonald) of Pottsville, and the Allen Rifles (Captain Thomas Yeager) of Allentown.

On January 21, 1861, Major-General William H. Keim (then surveyor-general of Pennsylvania, from Reading), with characteristic sagacity, advised Captain McKnight that the services of his company*** would probably soon be needed,(4*)and counseled him to hold them in readiness for immediate service. From that time till April 16th almost daily drills were practiced. On the 22nd of February they were in readiness to obey marching orders. The dispatch announcing the attack on Fort Sumter found the company at drill at some distance from the city. The effect was electrical. All were impatient to move to the defense of the flag.

On the morning of the 16th of April, marching orders were received from Governor Curtin; and, on the afternoon of the same day, the company moved by the Lebanon Valley Railroad to Harrisburg, where it arrived at eight o'clock in the evening.(5*)The company numbered one hundred and eight men, fully armed and equipped as light artillery. On reporting at the Executive Office (the Governor being absent in Washington) orders were sought from the Secretary of War (Simon Cameron), who telegraphed that the company be forwarded by the earliest train. This order was, later in the day, countermanded by the Secretary of the Commonwealth.(6*)

The five volunteer companies named were mustered into the service of the United States at Harrisburg for three months, and departed for Washington by railroad, on the 18th of April, at nine o'clock A.M. They arrived at Baltimore at one o'clock A.M. They were under the necessity of marching about two miles through the city, from Bolton to Camden Station. On leaving the cars, a battalion was formed in the following order: Fourth Artillery (regulars); Logan Guards; Allen Rifles, of Allentown; Washington Artillery and National Light Infantry, of Pottsville; with the Ringgold Artillery bringing up the rear. As the column was forming near Bolton Station, the police of Baltimore appeared in large force, headed by Marshall Kane, and followed by a mob, who at once commenced an attack upon the volunteers, countenanced by a portion of the police, who had been sent to give safe conduct through the city. Orders were given to the men to preserve their temper, and to make no reply to anything that should be said to them. At the command "forward," the mob commenced hooting, jeering and yelling, and proclaimed, with oaths, that the troops should not pass through their city to fight the South.

Arriving near the centre of the city, Pemberton, with his regulars,(7*)filed off toward Fort McHenry, leaving the volunteers to pursue their way through the city as well as they could. At this juncture the mob were excited to a perfect frenzy, breaking the line of the police, and pushing through the files of men, in an attempt to break the column. Every insult that could be heaped upon the troops was offered, but no word of reply was elicited. The officers and men marched steadily on toward Camden Station. At every step the mob increased till it numbered thousands of most determined and desperate men.

As the volunteers were boarding the train at the station, the angry mob hurled a shower of bricks, stones and clubs into their disorganized ranks, fortunately, however, inflicting only slight injuries. In the midst of the confusion, an attempt was made to detach the engine from the train and run it away. This was only prevented by the determined character of the engineer and his assistants, who drew revolvers and threatened to shoot any who dared to make the attempt. At length, amidst the demoniac yells of the crowd, the train moved off, carrying the volunteers safely beyond the reach of their desperate assailants.(8*) They arrived in Washington at seven o'clock in the evening.(9*)Arms, ammunition and equipments were furnished and the work of barricading the Capitol was commenced immediately. Squads of the rebel soldiers were then drilling on the opposite side of the Potomac River in full view of the Capitol. It having been ascertained on the 23d of April that an attempt would be made to capture Washington by way of the arsenal and the navy-yard, the "Ringgold Artillerists" were ordered to report to Captain Dahlgreen, at the navy-yard. Three twelve-pound howitzers were assigned to them, with which they were expected to defend the place.(10*)Excepting a detachment of twelve men, detailed to guard the "Short Bridge," the entire command was required to man these guns. On the 25th a sergeant and six men were detailed to serve as a guard on the steamer "Powhatan," which was dispatched to make a reconnoissance down the Potomac for the purpose of searching for obstructions and of ascertaining if forts were being erected along the river. On the 26th the company were ordered to duty at the Capitol; and on the 10th of May the Secretary of War assigned them to duty at the Washington Arsenal, where they remained till the expiration of their term of service, excepting a short interval, when they were detailed to mount guns in the forts about Washington. They were mustered out at Harrisburg.

These first five companies were justly entitled to the first place in the First Regiment of the Pennsylvania troops; but they were not organized till after twenty-four regiments, which succeeded them in the service, had been organized and fully equipped, when they became part of the Twenty-fifth and last regiment for the three months' service. Henry L. Cake, of Pottsville, was elected colonel of this regiment. But these companies, serving in Fort Washington, did not see their regiment or colonel. Nearly two months of the three for which the had enlisted passed by before they received adequate clothing or camp equipage from either the State or the national government; and many of the men were excused from duty because of their partial nakedness.(4*)



RINGGOLD LIGHT ARTILLERY (THE FIRST COMPANY).



At a military celebration held at Philadelphia on July 4, 1866, the post of honor in the parade was not given to the Ringgold Light Artillery, as the first company from Pennsylvania in the War of the Union; on which account the company refused to participate in the parade. Its place in history having been unjustly given to another company, the Hon. William M. Hiester prepared a paper to prove that the Ringgold Light Artillery was the first company, and read the same before the Historical Society of Berks County on June 14, 1870. In it he sustained the claim by incontrovertible evidence. I submit the following extracts as a valuable part of the chapter in this history to the Civil War:

President Lincoln issued his proclamation for seventy-five thousand men, April 15, 1861. On that morning, the Ringgold Light Artillery were drilling with full ranks, armed and equipped, on their parade-ground, a short distance from the city, when telegraphic news of the proclamation of the President reached the company on parade. The following dispatch was forthwith sent to Governor Curtin and appears in the record of dispatches in the office of the adjutant-general at Harrisburg:

"READING, April 15, 1861.

Governor A.G. Curtin:

"The Ringgold Light Artillery are parading this morning with their guns for practice, have ninety men on parade, every one of them expecting to be ordered on duty for the U.S. service before they leave their guns.

"H.A. LANTZ."

The deputy secretary of the commonwealth, as appears by the, first dispatch recorded on that day as sent, answered,-

"HARRISBURG, April 15, 1861.

"H.A. Lantz, Reading:

"Dispatch received. Will answer more fully as soon as possible.

"S.B. THOMAS, Deputy Secretary."

This was followed by another dispatch from the secretary of the commonwealth, omitted in the record of dispatches at Harrisburg, but found transcribed in the minute-book of the company.

"HARRISBURG, April 15, 1861,

"Captain James McKnight:

"Bring your command to Harrisburg by first train. If any of the men need equipments, they will be provided here by the General Government. Lose no time.

"By order of the Governor,
"ELI SLIFER."

This dispatch was received by Captain McKnight at 11.20 A.M., April 16th. By the first train after its receipt, the Ringgold Light Artillery, one hundred and one men, took passage, fully uniformed, armed and equipped, for Harrisburg, and reached there at eight o'clock P.M. They at once reported for duty to the secretary of the State, (the Governor being absent at Washington,) who, by telegram to the Secretary of War at Washington, reported the Ringgold Light Artillery at Harrisburg, awaiting orders. The Secretary of War telegraphed in answer,-

"Push forward the company by first train."

This telegram, conveying orders to march, was transmitted by the secretary of the commonwealth to Captain McKnight. Orders in obedience thereto were then issued to the command, to take the train for Washington at three o'clock A.M., April 17th. If these orders had not been countermanded, the Ringgold Light Artillery would undoubtedly have reached Washington safely in advance of all troops from Pennsylvania and elsewhere, and before the Logan Guard and the companies from Pottsville reported at Harrisburg. At midnight, however, the order to march was countermanded(12*) in the following counter-order:

"HARRISBURG, APRIL 16, 1861.

"Captain James McKnight:

"You will please delay your march to Washington until ordered by the Governor.

"Respectfully yours,
"ELI SLIFER."


This order fixes so indisputably the time of the arrival and the report for duty at Harrisburg by the Ringgold Light Artillery that any cumulative evidence is wholly superfluous. If any be needed, it will be found in the following extract from the Pennsylvania Daily Telegraph of April 17, 1861, an evening paper published at Harrisburg:

"Last night about eight o'clock, the Ringgold Artillery, Captain James McKnight, numbering one hundred men, arrived. They took up quarters at Herr's Hotel. They are a fine body of men and are fully prepared and determined to do their whole duty in the present crisis. Our citizens welcomed them with cheers."


It is stated in Bates' "History of Pennsylvania Volunteers:"

"On the afternoon of the day of the President's proclamation for seventy-five thousand men, the Secretary of War telegraphed the call to the Governor of Pennsylvania, and it was telegraphed to all parts of Pennsylvania. Among the first to respond was the Ringgold Artillery, Logan Guard, Washington Artillery, National Light Infantry and Allen Rifles. On reporting at the Executive office- the Governor being absent in Washington- orders were sought from the Secretary of War, who telegraphed to push company forward in earliest train. That order, for prudential reasons, was almost immediately countermanded by the Secretary of the Commonwealth."


The Logan Guard did not reach Harrisburg till midday of the 17th, and the Pottsville companies till the evening of the 17th.

(From Pennsylvania Daily Telegraph, April 17, 1861.)

"MORE MILITARY.- The Logan Guard of Lewistown arrived here this morning."

(From Pennsylvania Daily Telegraph, April 18, 1861.)

"We give below a list of the companies that arrived last night: Washington Artillery, Pottsville, Captain Wren, one hundred and ten men; National Light Infantry, Pottsville, Captain McDonald, one hundred and four men; Allen Infantry, Allentown, Captain Yeager, sixty-four men."


(From Bates' "History of Pennsylvania Volunteers.")

"The Logan Guard were in line and ready to march at 10 P.M. of the 16th of April, and move to the station, but for lack of transportation did not reach Harrisburg till the morning of the 17th.

"The two Pottsville companies under marching orders left Pottsville on the 17th, and arrived in Harrisburg at eight o'clock in the evening."


STATEMENT OF CAPTAIN MCKNIGHT.-
"I commanded the Ringgold Light Artillery, from the year 1850 until June 14, 1861, when I was appointed to a captaincy in Fifth United States Artillery.

"On or about the 21st day of January, 1861, I was visited by William H. Keim, then surveyor-general of the State of Pennsylvania and major-general of the Fifth Division Pennsylvania Militia.

"The general first meeting me in a public place at my residence,(13*)stated that he had a subject of much importance and great secrecy in regard to which he desired to advise me, and requesting at the same time that I would suggest some place to which we could both retire, where the nature of the communication which he was about to make to me would be unheard by others. We then both withdrew to a private apartment.

"The general then proceeded to state that the government was in possession of facts tending to develop an intention on the part of the rebels to seize Washington on the 22nd of February, and not, as was at first supposed, upon March 4, 1861. He came to me, (he further stated,) by direction and under the orders of Governor Andrew G. Curtin, commander-in-chief of the Pennsylvania Militia, who had commissioned him to select from the best volunteer organizations of the State such companies as could be relied upon, if the emergency should arise and who would be ready to move upon twenty-four hours' notice.

"Upon satisfying the general, not only of the willingness but also of the ability of my command to start whenever desired, he then and there directed me to consider myself and command as under orders.

"The general about the same time imparted similar information to other volunteer organizations of this county.

"My orders, coming as they did from the commander-in-chief of the Pennsylvania troops, were so imperative in their nature and admitted of so little delay that I immediately set about perfecting and equipping my command for active field duty. The same day upon which my orders were received, the company was divided into squads for the purpose of more effective drilling, which was continued uninterruptedly, (save on Saturdays and Sundays,) up to the day before we left for Harrisburg, April 16, 1861. The drills were not confined to the service of the guns and the duties incident to drivers and the care of horses; the men were also well instructed in the use of the sabre, the only legitimate arm of defense of an artilleryman when dismounted and away from his guns.

"During the month of January, a number of the leading citizens having been apprised of the secret orders under which my command was placed, purchased for the use of the men one hundred overcoats,(14*) which were worn on the 22nd of February at a general parade of the company. On the 15th day of April, 1861, whilst at drill some three miles from the city, intelligence was received of the proclamation of the President of the United States calling for seventy-five thousand men.

"The Governor of the state was immediately telegraphed that the Ringgold Light Artillery was ready to move without any delay whatever. I then suspended drill, returned to the city, and, after directing a certain signal to be sounded upon receipt of orders, dismissed the command.


"At twenty minutes after eleven o'clock A.M., April 16, 1861, the following telegram was received by me:

"HARRISBURG, April 16, 1861.

"'To Captain James McKnight:

"'Bring your command to Harrisburg by first train. If any of the men need equipments and arms they will be provided here by the General Government. Lose no time.

"By order of the Governor.

"ELI SLIFER.'

"At noon of the same day, forty minutes after the receipt of the order, the command declared itself ready to move at one o'clock P.M.

"A committee having been appointed to make all arrangements for transportation, reported that after conferring with G.A. Nicolls, general superintendent of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad, they were advised by him to take the regular passenger train at six o'clock P.M., as a special, being subject to unavoidable delay, would in all probability not reach Harrisburg until after the arrival of the regular train.

"Acting upon this advice, I left Reading with my command, numbering one hundred and one men, fully armed and equipped, on the evening of April 16, 1861, at six o'clock, reaching Harrisburg at eight o'clock."

MAJOR JAMES MCKNIGHT was the son of John McKnight, cashier of the Pennsylvania Branch Bank at Reading. He was born in the bank building March 20, 1820, and received his higher education at Princeton College. Upon his return from college he entered the hardware-store of Daniel M. Keim & Co. as a clerk. In 1841 he became associated with Joseph L. Stichter, and they together, under the name of Stichter & McKnight, conducted the business till he retired in 1858. During that time he was actively interested in military affairs. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, he was the first captain to offer the services of his company, the Ringgold Light Artillery, to the government and to report for duty at Harrisburg. He served with this company for three months. Then he was commissioned a major of artillery in the regular army and served till the close of the war. He has since lived in retirement.

SEVENTH REGIMENT.

7th Regiment 

The Seventh Regiment was organized at Camp Curtin on April 22nd. It was encamped for over a month at Chambersburg. On June 8th it moved southwardly. It was stationed at Williamsport on the 19th, and whilst there, late in the evening of that day, an alarm was raised which caused the whole brigade (Third) to be called to arms and formed into line of battle; but, beyond distant picket-firing, nothing further was heard. On July 2nd it began the march to Martinsburg. On the way it confiscated the contents of an extensive flour-mill, (a large amount of grain and flour and one hundred and fifty barrels of whiskey), the owner having been a captain in the rebel army. Shortly afterward it was encamped at Charlestown, where it remained, without special incident, until ordered to Harrisburg, where it was mustered out of service in the latter part of July.

GENERAL WILLIAM H. KEIM was born at Reading on June 13, 1813. He was the eldest son of Benneville Keim, the President of the Farmers' Bank for a number of years, Mayor of Reading for three terms, and a prominent and enterprising business man of the county. His mother was Mary High, a daughter of General William High, a wealthy farmer of Cumru township, at "Poplar Neck," and a man prominent in the military affairs of the county.

At the age of twelve years he entered the Military Academy at Mount Airy, near Philadelphia, which, during its active existence, was one of the foremost educational institutions in the United States, and was graduated with honor in 1829. Upon returning home he entered the store of his father, which was then one of the largest general hardware-stores in Reading, and continued actively engaged in this pursuit for nearly thirty years- the greater part of the time as a proprietor of a large store in co-partnership with his brother, John H. Keim. Besides the store business, he encouraged enterprises generally for the development of Reading.

His early military training gave him a natural taste for military affairs, and he found a field for its gratification in the volunteer service of the State Militia. Before the age of seventeen years, he was an Orderly Sergeant of the "Washington Grays," and in 1837 he became Captain- succeeding his cousin, Captain Daniel M. Keim. He was promoted rapidly till 1842, when he was elected Major-General of the Fifth Division of Penna. Vols., which was composed of Berks, Lebanon, Dauphin and Schuylkill Counties. In that year he took a prominent part in the Military Encampment held at Reading, which was an eventful occasion in the history of military affairs in this county. Among other distinguished military men, General Winfield Scott was in attendance. In 1844, during the terrible religious riot at Philadelphia, he was ordered to assist in quelling the disturbances, which resulted in loss of life and property. He was under Gen. Robert Patterson, Senior Major-General in the State. The good opinion, which General Keim's command had won, was justly expressed in the following extract from General Order, No. 30, issued by General Patterson, when the detachment of the Fifth Division was relieved until further orders:
    "The Major-General further desires to express his knowledge of their exemplary and soldier-like deportment while under his command. He will at all times be happy to serve with such troops. Berks County may well be proud of her volunteer soldiery."

His services in organizing our local militia and in bringing them under proper discipline were both untiring and successful, thereby placing them in the front rank of the volunteer soldiers of the State.

In 1848 he was elected to the office of Mayor of Reading for one term. He was the second Mayor of the city. He had been nominated and run as the Whig candidate in the previous year, but a third candidate in the field, who ran independently, caused his defeat. Several years afterward, he took great- if not the principal- interest in establishing at Reading time" Pennsylvania Military Institute," for the purpose of enabling young men to obtain education in military matters. In November, 1858, he was elected to represent Berks County in Congress, to fill the vacancy till March following, caused by the resignation of Hon. J. Glancy Jones. In October, previously, Jones had been defeated in a campaign for re-election by John Schwartz, through a coalition of Republicans and Independent Democrats. When Jones resigned to accept the mission to Austria, this political feeling was still active, and it resulted in the election of General Keim as the Republican candidate against Joel B. Wanner, the Democratic candidate. He was the first and the only Republican elected to represent this district in Congress. In 1859 he was elected Surveyor-General of the State for the term of three years. At that time he also held the office of Major-General of militia.

In 1860, whilst at Harrisburg, after the result of the Presidential election in favor of the Republican party had become known, General Keim suggested to Governor Curtin that the commonwealth be put in a condition of defense, inasmuch as the signs of discontent indicated civil strife; and he recommended in that behalf a general encampment of the militia of the State. Governor Curtin accepted this timely suggestion, and, in pursuance of an order by him, an encampment was held at York, in the beginning of September, 1860, with General Keith as the chief in command. In January following, upon visiting his home at Reading, he called upon Captain James McKnight, who commanded the Ringgold Light Artillery, a company of volunteers in his brigade, and asked him to keep his company in readiness so as to be able to respond promptly to any order that might be given. Through this notice, the Ringgold Light Artillery came to be the first company that responded to the President's call for troops and reported for duty at Harrisburg in April, 1861. General Keim offered his services when the crisis arose, and Gov. Curtin appointed him to a command of State troops under the first requisition of the President. Major-General Robert Patterson commanded the Pennsylvania line, which was composed of two divisions, and served for three months in the campaign on the Upper Potomac. The headquarters were at Chambersburg, and General Keim was in command of the Second Division. On June 15th, this army was encamped at Hagerstown, and on July 2nd, it crossed the Potomac into Virginia.

A force under "Stonewall" Jackson was met shortly afterward at "Falling Waters," but after a skirmish it fell back, and its camp at Hoke's Run was occupied. On July l5th, the army advanced from Martinsburg to Bunker's Hill; and on the 17th Charlestown was reached. By that time the term of service of many of the regiments expired and orders for their muster out were issued. The column was so much weakened thereby that it withdrew to Harper's Ferry.

After the campaign on the Upper Potomac, General Keim received from the President the appointment of Brigadier-General of National troops; and then resigning the office of Surveyor-General, he was ordered to join the Army of the Potomac. His brigade was attached to General Casey's division of General Keyes' corps, and was sent to Fortress Monroe, where, under the command of General McClellan, it advanced towards Richmond. At the battle of Williamsburg, (one of the most severe contests of the war), General Keim distinguished himself. Although too sick to be on duty, he could not be prevented from leaving the hospital, mounting his horse and leading his brigade on the field. His coolness, judgment and great bravery during the action were conspicuous. Though under fire nearly the whole time, he was perfectly calm. A bomb fell almost under his horse. Every one about him turned pale from fear. The explosion covered him with mud. After the battle, General McClellan called on him, complimented him for the great service which he had rendered, and ordered him to the post of honor in advance of the army. But the excitement incident to this battle aggravated his illness and he was obliged to ask for a furlough. This was granted and he returned to Harrisburg, where his family had taken up a temporary residence. Unfortunately, his health was too far gone, and he died on May 18, 1862, in the very prime of life and usefulness, aged forty-eight years. The news of his death produced a profound sensation of regret throughout the Army of the Potomac. General McClellan was deeply affected by the loss of this faithful commander, and he, on May 26th following, issued a General Order announcing his death and complimenting his faithful, patriotic services to his country, which was read to every regiment in the army. His remains were brought to Reading, and buried with military honors in the Charles Evans Cemetery.

A public meeting of citizens was held on May 20, 1862, for the purpose of expressing regret over General Keim's death. A committee- of which Hon. J. Pringle Jones, ex-president judge of the county, was chairman- reported appropriate resolutions, including, among truthful sentiments, the following high tribute:

"For long years, a prosperous merchant, we knew him as one whose praises were on all men's tongues, as well for enterprise in business and liberality in promoting the good of the community, as for indulgence to those who were his debtors, and for the exercise of a wide charity to the poor. We knew him, too, when misfortune overtook him, and we know with what honor and honesty and with what fortitude he passed through the dark days of adversity. In the varied relations of his private life he was greatly beloved; and in his death our city and county have lost a citizen whose modest deportment, exemplary conduct, public spirit and sterling integrity endeared him most deservedly to the people."

THREE YEARS' SERVICE.

The insurrection having been too powerful to be suppressed by the first display of military authority, the President issued a second proclamation, calling upon the States to furnish two hundred thousand men who were to be enlisted for three years. The response was prompt and vigorous. The quota of men from Pennsylvania was soon filled by the patriotic impulses of her people.

The following companies comprise time men from Berks County who enlisted as volunteers for three years:

Company A, 32nd Regiment, Captain Jacob Lenhart, Jr.

Company D, 32nd Regiment, Captain William Briner.

Company F, 32nd Regiment, Captain Washington Richards.

Company I, 36th Regiment, Captain Jerome Myers.

THIRTY-SECOND REGIMENT.

32nd Regiment

The Thirty-second Regiment included companies A, D and F, from Berks County, the other companies being from Bucks and Philadelphia Counties. It was mustered into the United States service at Harrisburg, on July 27, 1861, after an experience of two months in drilling in camp near Easton.

It was immediately ordered to Washington; and after remaining there till August 2nd, proceeded to Tennallytown, a village six miles northwest from the Capitol, and was there encamped with other troops. While in camp the regiment was drilled, and assisted in erecting Fort Pennsylvania, which was a formidable and very important earthwork. On October 9th it moved over the Potomac and encamped near Langley in the army line stretching nearly twenty miles along the Virginia shore. Here they did skirmishing, picketing and drilling.

On March 10th, 1862, it moved with the "Army of the Potomac" in search of the enemy. On April 10th it was taken by rail to Manassas Junction with the brigade (second), and thence proceeded to a point opposite Fredericksburg. Whilst there the troops were reviewed by President Lincoln. From this point they marched down the Rappahannock, arriving at the White House on the 11th of May, where the 2nd brigade checked the enemy's movements, and repulsed an attack upon the train of the Reserves. On May 13th they were within a few miles of Richmond, occupying the extreme right and in advance of the main line; there they were attacked by the enemy, and held their ground against vastly superior numbers, resting upon the field at night. At 2 A.M. on the following morning the regiment was relieved. In withdrawing from the field, it passed under a heavy fire from the enemy by which it suffered some loss. At Gaines' Mill, the division, including this regiment, was held in reserve; but the enemy soon broke through the first line, and for two hours the regiment was left to bear the brunt of the fierce assault of the enemy, when it was relieved by other troops. Its conduct in this battle was highly praised by General Meade upon the field. On May 15th the regiment was withdrawn across the Chickahominy, and in June following it was engaged in the battle of Gaines' Mill, which was fought by McClellan to save the material of his army. On June 29th it was posted on picket duty toward Richmond. In an engagement there, the regiment was sent Forward to feel the enemy, and was received with a withering fire of musketry.

While the whole line was engaged a supporting regiment mistook the 32nd Regiment in the smoke of battle for the enemy, and opened fire upon its ranks, throwing the men into disorder and causing them to break; but they did not leave the field. At 11 o'clock in the night of that day the division was withdrawn and marched to Malvern Hill, and afterward to Harrison's Landing, where it was encamped until August 1st following.

After the Army of the Potomac was ordered to evacuate the Peninsula, the 32nd Regiment moved to Warrenton after passing other points, and there, on August 24th, was formed in line of battle, but without entering an engagement. Subsequently the regiment was engaged in a battle at Hall's Hill, near Manassas Junction, and its loss was severe; and at Antietam, on the 16th and 17th of September, where they fought for hours until relieved by other troops. Fifty-one of their number were killed and wounded in this battle. In October, November and December they moved toward Fredericksburg, where they were engaged in battle on the 13th of December. During the charge upon the enemy the regiment maintained its position with great firmness, and was among the very last to retire. It lost there in killed, wounded and missing, one hundred and twenty-eight men.

After marching to several places without an engagement it moved to the defenses of Washington on February 8th, where it was attached to the 22nd Army Corps. There it was given an opportunity to rest and recruit its ranks, having been greatly reduced by severe fighting and by long and fatiguing marches. It remained here until January 6th, 1864, when it was ordered to duty in West Virginia, under General Sickel. The regiment was then commanded by Major William Briner, and with other troops (Fourth Reserves) did picket duty on the roads in the vicinity of Martinsburg during January; and after marching and counter-marching for about a week for the purpose of finding the enemy and guarding against surprise, in which the men were completely exhausted by loss of sleep and much exposure, they again performed picket duty on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad near Martinsburg until March 29th, when they moved to Harper's Ferry. In the beginning of April they proceeded across the Allegheny Mountains to Grafton and thence to the Kanawha Valley; there this regiment was placed under the command of Captain Jacob Lenhart, Major William Briner having been sent to the hospital at Grafton, on account of severe injury on his right hand. On the 6th of May they had a lively skirmish with the Sixtieth Virginia troops at Princetown and during the next two days had a long march of thirty miles to the gap in Walker (or Cloyd) Mountain, near Shannon bridge. On May 9th they had an engagement near by, in which the enemy was routed; there Captain Lenhart was wounded and the command of the regiment devolved upon Captain Robert Johnson. In the charge upon the enemy's works the regiment had three color-bearers shot down. After considerable marching they halted at Meadow Bluff on May 19th. In this time they had much skirmishing with the enemy; and every night a strong guard was posted around the camp to avoid surprise. The men suffered much from hunger, and many were without soles on their shoes. On May 22nd they moved to Millville, near Louisburg, and while there their term of service expired. In pursuance of orders they proceeded via Pittsburg to Philadelphia, where they were mustered out of service on June 17, 1864.

CAPTAIN J.C.A. HOFFEDITZ is of German descent. His father was the Rev. Theodore L. Hoffeditz, D.D., who was born near Karlshaafen, in Germany, in 1780. He there obtained an education, learned the trade of a piano-maker and emigrated to America when eighteen years of age. He located at Reading and carried on his trade for some years, when he took up the study of theology at Philadelphia. Several years afterward he was duly ordained as a minister in the Reformed Church, and then receiving calls to preach for five congregations in Northampton and Monroe Counties, he proceeded to the former and there fixed his residence. He preached with great success in those counties for forty-six years, till his decease. He died in 1856, aged seventy-six years. Some years before he died, the degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred upon him by the Synod of the German Reformed Church. He was a well-known and distinguished minister of the Gospel. He acted as the first presiding officer of the meeting of the United Synod of this church, which was held at Mifflinbug, Pa. He was married to Julia Roth, of Northampton County, and had thirteen children, of whom eight survive him,- Louisa, Theodore (who became a minister), Maria (married to Rev. George Weber), C.W. Lorenzo, Pauline, John Christian A., William B. and Emma J. (married to Rev. Eli Keller).

John C.A. Hoffeditz was born April 5, 1826, in Upper Mount Bethel township, Northampton County. After having been sent to school in that township till his twelfth year, he became a pupil of the Moravian school at Nazareth, familiarly known as the "Nazareth Hall." Upon completing his studies there he removed to Carbon County and devoted four years to acquiring the trade of a tanner. He then pursued this vocation at Easton for a year, after which he settled at Reading and carried on the mercantile business. In 1880 he associated with his son, J. Calvin Hoffeditz, in the manufacture of carriages, they together erecting for the purpose an extensive four-story brick factory and warehouse, and continued in this enterprise for several years.

Several months after the Rebellion had begun, and just after the disastrous battle of Bull Run, when the whole country was alarmed over the defeat of our army, he raised a company of cavalry, called the "Reading Troop," and became its captain. He offered the services of his company to the national government by telegram to General Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, and it was the first company of cavalry from Pennsylvania accepted by him for military service in the Civil War. He reported for duty and it was attached to the Forty-fourth, or First Cavalry Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers, as Company L. He continued in command of the company till sickness obliged him to resign his commission. His resignation was accepted April 6, 1862. Upon returning to Reading he acted for some time as deputy provost marshal of the Eighth Pennsylvania District, comprising the county of Berks.

In politics he is an ardent Republican, frequently taking an active part in the conventions of this party. The school affairs of the city have received his earnest attention. He is now representing his ward (the Seventh) in the

school board. His enterprise in behalf of the city improvements led him to organize the "Reading Electric Light and Power Company," for the purpose of supplying Reading with a light superior to gas, and he filled the office of president of the company for the first year.

Captain Hoffeditz is a prominent and highly respected member of the Masonic fraternity in this community. He is connected with four lodges of the Free and Accepted Masons,- Chandler Lodge, No. 227; Reading Chapter, No. 152; De Molay Commandery, No. 9; and Reading Council, No. 16. He has received the Thirty-third Degree, "Right of Memphis," in this extensive and influential organization. He is a charter member of McLean Post, No. 16, and also of Keim Post, No. 76, of the Grand Army of the Republic. He is connected with St. Paul's Memorial Reformed congregation at Reading, having been a member of the church for many years.

On July 24, 1853, he was married to Emma H., daughter of Michael Reifsnyder, of Reading. They had four children,- John Calvin, Theodore M., William C. and Rosa M., all of whom have died excepting the first.

Its first conflict was at Winchester, where for five hours it held its position with great coolness and bravery whilst retreating toward the Potomac before Stonewall Jackson. On August 8, 1862, it was in the battle of Cedar Mountain. Its position fell opposite the enemy's advanced pieces, and upon these the men charged with desperate valor; and on Sept. 17th following, it was engaged in the battle of Antietam. In May 1863, it participated in a fierce engagement near Chancellorsville; and in July following it took a prominent part in the battle of Gettysburg. On the 3d it occupied the extreme right of the line. After the withdrawal of Lee it was attached to the Army of Tennessee, under General Rosecrans. Its first service there was in guarding the Nashville Railroad from Tullahoma to Bridgeport. In January, 1864, the Regiment proceeded to Pennsylvania on a veteran furlough, the greater part of the officers and men having re-enlisted for a second term of three years.

Among the re-enlisted men in the regiment was a young man, Henry Weidensaul, a native of Morgantown, in Berks County. He entered the regiment in his fourteenth year and participated in the battles of Winchester, Cedar Mountain, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Resaca, Dallas, Kenesaw and Peach. Tree Creek. He was first wounded at Cedar Mountain, where he was taken prisoner and confined in Libby Prison for five weeks. He received wounds also at Peach Tree Creek and Atlanta. On July 1, 1863, he was seventeen years old. The Keystone State claimed him to be the youngest veteran soldier in the service.

Upon recruiting its ranks it rejoined the army at Chattanooga, and participated in the Atlanta campaign under General Sherman in his great march to the sea. After nearly four years of faithful service it was mustered out on July 16, 1865, near Alexandria, Va.

Her masts were cut away, the freight and camp equipage were thrown overboard, a portion of her officers and crew deserted her and everything was given up for lost. She was finally saved through the superhuman efforts of the soldiers, who had been left to their fate without food or water. The regiment went into camp on the island at Hilton Head and was employed for a time in building fortifications. On December 6th it proceeded to Beaufort and there experienced its first skirmish with the enemy. It participated in the battle of Coosaw on January 1, 1862. In General Hunter's demonstration against Charleston, Lieutenant-Colonel Brenholtz and six companies took a prominent part. They drove the enemy from a railroad bridge which spanned a stream near Pocotaligo. The planks on this bridge had been removed and a crossing could only be effected by running the gauntlet of the causeway and walking the stringers, which still remained. For some time firing was kept up from the opposite side of the stream, and it became evident that the enemy could only be dislodged by crossing. At this juncture Captain Parker of Company H, volunteered to brave the danger of the causeway and, lead his men over upon the stringers. The feat was accomplished and the bridge replanked. But Captain Parker was killed. "His gallantry in crossing the frail bridge at Pocotaligo cost him his life. He was pierced by three rifle-balls, and fell while cheering his men on the perilous passage." This expedition was not successful.

The regiment then remained near Beaufort till July 12th; then it proceeded to Fortress Monroe and became part of the Ninth Corps. This corps was ordered to support Pope on the Rapidan. Subsequently it was engaged in the first and second days' fights at Bull Run. Brenholtz commanded the regiment. He was one of the wounded in the second day's fight. On August 1st it participated in the battle of Chantilly, where its conduct was not excelled for gallantry; and several weeks afterward also in the battle of Antietam. In this latter engagement Major Overton fell severely wounded, and the command devolved upon Captain Diehl, of
COMPANY E.


The regiment witnessed the battle of Fredericksburg on December 13th, but was not actively engaged. Subsequently it was moved to Kentucky and then participated in the siege of Vicksburg. In the great battle for the occupancy of that place, the regiment had been deployed as skirmishers in a very exposed position. There Brenholtz, whilst gallantly leading his men before the enemy's works, was mortally wounded. His fall was greatly lamented. Much of the credit which the organization had acquired was due to his excellent qualities as a soldier. No braver man ever led in battle, and upon his fall the service lost one of its most valued leaders. In August only eighty of the regiment were present for duty, and nearly all of these had chills and fever. The other men of the regiment were in hospitals suffering from wounds or malaria.

On October 10, 1863, it took part in aim engagment at Blue Springs, in East Tennessee, and in November at Lenoir Station, on Tennessee Railroad, and at Knoxville, which was unsuccessfully besieged by Longstreet. Nearly the entire regiment re-enlisted on January 1, 1864. For several months previously the men endured intense suffering from cold and hunger without a murmur. On Christmas they had nothing to eat till evening and then only a part of a ration. During January they marched to Nicholasville, a distance of two hundred miles, in ten days. Many of the men were barefooted and walked thus through the snow. In February they proceeded to Harrisburg on a veteran furlough, and visited their homes. In March the regiment encamped at Annapolis, and in May, on the 6th, it was heavily engaged in the battle of the Wilderness. In moving from the field it was designated as the rear guard to the corps. On May 9th it was again engaged in battle near Spottsylvania Court-House. The brigade carried the heights in its front. With fixed bayonets the regiment charged up the steep ascent and routed the enemy greatly superior in number. But the cost was fearful. Among the killed was Captain Cleveland, of Company H. Three days afterward the regiment had another desperate encounter, in which the men had a struggle hand to hand. Adjutant Kendall, three sergeants and twenty-five privates were taken prisoners. From the Ny river to the North Anna, and thence to Cold Harbor, the regiment was engaged almost daily. At Cold Harbor, on June 2, 1864, it occupied the front line and suffered severely. Shortly afterward it lay in line before Petersburg. On June 18th, Captain Lantz of Company E, and several men were killed. It then performed picket duty during July and participated in the siege and great explosion of the mine; and during August it was engaged in continuous fighting, with but little interruption. It remained in the front during September, October and November, when it went into winter-quarters immediately in front of Petersburg.

The Union lines begall to close in on the rebel works on April 1, 1865. The regiment was engaged during the operations of the 2nd and 3d, and it was among the first regiments to enter Petersburg upon its fall. It moved to City Point on April 15th, and thence by boat to Washington, where it remained till June 30th. By order of the Secretary of War, upon the recommendation of Lieutenant-General Grant, this regiment was ordered to represent the infantry of the army upon the occasion of laying the corner-stone of the national monument at Gettysburg on July 4, 1865. From Gettysburg it went into camp near Georgetown, where it was mustered out of service on July 31st.

COLONEL THOMAS BRENHOLTZ was the son of Isaac Brenholtz, a master-machinist of Reading. He was born in 1834. He taught school for some years at Reading very successfully, and then, studying law, was admitted to practice on September 20, 1860. When the Rebellion broke out he enlisted as a lieutenant in Company H, Fifth Regiment, three months' service. This term expiring, he raised one of three companies in the three years' service, which were recruited at Reading for the Fiftieth Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, and upon its organization was elected lieutenant-colonel. As such officer he served for nearly two year's with great galkintry. His regiment participated in the first expedition against the coast of South Carolina, and subsequently in a number of engagements, prominent among which was the costly battle of Fredericksburg, in all of which he displayed the courage of a true soldier. He had chief command of the regiment upon several occasions. He was wounded at Jackson, Miss., and, from the effects of time wounds, died at Evansville, Ind., on August 19th, 1863, leaving to survive him a young widow and two small children. He was highly respected and promising young man, recognized for his exemplary life and marked ability. His remains were brought to Reading and interred in Charles Evans' cemetery. The funeral was largely attended, Major-Gen. Franz Sigel, his staff and other military officers were present upon that occasion.

*** The Ringgold Light Artillery of Reading, a volunteer company, was organized and equipped under James McKnight, captain. It was armed with four six-pounder brass field-pieces and caissons, with full equipments of artillerists, including sabres. The muster-roll included ninety men. It was composed of good material, and was well drilled, and was the pride of the city of Reading. It had participated in several volunteer encampments, one at Easton, of a week's duration, where it was entertained by ex-Governor Reeder and other leading citizens.

(4*) At this time Captain McKnight recommended to Major-General Keim three other companies in Berks County- one at Friedensburg (Schroeder's), a second at Womelsdorf (Clouse's) and a third at Hamburg.

(5*) Immediately after their departure Jacob Knabb (senior editor of the Berks and Schuylkill Journal) sent the following telegram to the Associated Press:

"READING, April 16, 1861.- The Ringgold Flying Artillery (Captain James McKnight), with 108 men and four field-pieces, having received a requisition from the Governor this morning, set out this evening for Harrisburg, the place of rendezvous. They are the first Pennsylvanians in the field."

(6*) "HARRISBURG, April 16, 1861.

"CAPTAIN JAMES MCKNIGHT:

"Dear Sir.- You will please delay your march to Washington until ordered by the Governor.

"Respectfully yours,

"ELI SLIFER."

If this order had not been given the company would have reached Washington before daylight on the morning of the 17th of April, or before any of the other Pennsylvania companies left their homes. It was the first organized volunteer company in the United States to offer its services to the government- an offer having been made to General Scott a month before the President's first call for troops. It was the first company to leave home after the call, and the first to reach Harrisburg and report for duty.

A long article was prepared by Hon. William M. Hiester and published in the Berks and Schuylkill Journal on June 18, 1870, proving these assertions. But similar assertions were made before in the Journal (see issue of June 16, 1866; also May 7, 1870).

(7*) The regulars were under the command of a sergeant. Pemberton was not with them, he having been in the passenger train. Captain McKnight met him there.

(8*) The House of Representatives passed a resolution on 22nd of July, 1861, tendering thanks to these companies for passing through the mob of Baltimore and reaching Washington on the 18th of April, for the defense of the national capital. Such a resolution is rarely passed and only to signalize great and distinguished service.

(9*) The Washington Chronicle, in publishing a chronological list of the troops which arrived in Washington, stated that these companies were the very first to arrive in the city after the publication of the President's proclamation.

(10*) When the company left Harrisburg they were ordered to leave behind their field pieces and equipments, with the exception of sabres, and these were not restored to them till the 16th of May.

(11*) This statement is made by Bates, in the "History of the Pennsylvania volunteers." But it is erroneous. The Ringgold Artillery was the only company that was regularly uniformed and equipped when these companies reached Washington. The other companies were in citizens' dress, but received uniforms and equipments several clays after their arrival. The Ringgold Artillerists retained their uniform and drew none from the government. The companies without uniforms were not recognized in the mob at Baltimore; and only a dozen or fifteen men in Selheimer's company carried rifles.

(12*) I asked Major McKnight if he knew why this was done. He said that Governor Curtin was punctilious about his authority, he wanting to order the troops as commander of Pennsylvania.

(13*) Union Bank Building. He resided in the rear part.

(14*) The meeting comprised the following gentlemen, who then raised a fund for that purpose: John McManus, G.A. Nicolls, David McKnight, Edward Wallace, Horatio Trexler, H.H. Muhlenberg, William M. Hiester, James Millholland and C.H. Hunter.

(15*) For further account see 194th Regiment.
