THE SOLDIERS OF CLARION COUNTY IN THE REBELLION.



IT has been said that human history never has been and never can be written. Let this sentiment here apply. The history of Clarion county's soldiers never has been written, and it never can be written in such a manner as justly to pass down to future generations all that was done by them worthy of emulation, or deserving of condemnation.

Every community has a history; which history, if written, would not all be clean, honest, noble, and inspiring. It could not be. A true history is a record of motives and purposes that bring about events, as well as a record of transpired events. Alas! too often, therefore, history, if truly written, would bear upon its pages the sophistical palaver of the knave, and the untempered harangues of the fool; the unjust murmurings of disappointed ambition, and the unwept tears of broken-hearted love; the midnight skulkings of the coward, and the inhuman acts of the villain and the murderer.

Concerning a community of 24,988 souls, which was the population of Clarion county in 1860, posterity would scarcely expect to find the history of that community's nearly three thousand soldiers to be entirely without some of those darker pages. As they went forth to the struggle well might it be said:

Some few may cause a noble wife to weep;
Some few may break a mother's Spartan heart;
Some few may fail their martial vows to keep;
Some few, too weak, may play the coward's part;

But see the HEROES in that band!

Heroes, indeed! The writer has in mind instances of suffering and devotion, of patriotism and bravery, and of complete and perfect manliness as exemplified by the lives of some Clarion county soldiers, that would stand in splendor on history's page side by side with the most notable exploits of the soldiers of Miltiades at Marathon, or those of Leonidas at Thermopylę, or of those of Napoleon, at Austerlitz. It is a truth of history, for which every true son of Clarion county has cause to be proud, that the number of dishonest men, cowards, or worse men, who went to the war from Clarion county was exceedingly small.

Believing that human inspirations and aspirations are identical the world over, when human beings stand on the same plane of civilization and enlightenment, it is reasonable to conclude that some of our soldiers entered the army for gain, and some for mere adventure. It has been so in all time. Men have, in other times, walked over the ground sanctified by the blood of the slain, to gather indications of a "deal," and why not some of these? Men have, in other times, shared the prison of comrades and intensified that prison's damnable memories by setting unnatural and unholy prices upon that which they had "to sell" to a suffering companion, and why not some of these? Men have in other times, stolen a fellow soldier's meager pay, or stolen away from duty; willing to be known as a "deserter," and why not some of these?

Some did make for themselves records like these in the memories of their comrades, and that fact emphasizes the grandeur of the lives of the great majority, who had kindled upon their hearthstones the fires of patriotism long before they ever thought of seeing them burn upon the battle-field; who would scorn to traffic for profit where the dead were buried or where the wounded suffered, while they were not armed and equipped to defend the flag; who shared their last pinch of salt, for nothing, with a comrade; who would sooner die than rob a soldier; and who would rather stand by the flag and suffer than forsake it.

The following rolls are an eloquent tribute to the twenty-nine hundred men and more whose names constitute the honor roll of Clarion county. The man who deserted because he expected to get "bounty" by returning, certainly deserved a death ignominious. The man who fled the carnival of death because of mortal terror, deserved to be pitied. God made him as he was. The man who forsook the flag, fearing that his loved ones at' home would not be cared for, might well renounce his share of the government in which he had not faith enough to trust it with his all. These things are all a part of the history of the wars in which mankind participates.

To judge of the deed, the motive should be known, so if by the following pages any one soldier is shown in the light of facts to have been not a true soldier, it is hoped that the mantle of charity will be thrown over the errors of both the living and the dead, to the end that the descendants of the dead may not feel the iron in their souls, but may be loyal, patriotic, brave and useful citizens; and that the undutiful living may live down the mistakes of the past and bequeath to their children a correct conception of duty to our country.

The noble women of Clarion county who kept watch by day and vigil by night during these four deathless years, deserve a more fitting tribute than this poor pen can give. Their reward is for the future.

The sturdy yeomanry who remained at home to work and to encourage the bereaved ones, and care for the widow and the orphan, and do the duties that devolved upon them as civilians, are worthy of commendation, and no true history will question the motives or challenge the sentiments of that honorable class of our population, unless perhaps it might be to call in question the loyalty of some particular individual or individuals. With the hope that this sketch of the military achievements of the men of Clarion county may have a correct influence upon posterity, it is respectfully dedicated to the soldiers of Clarion county, by their friend,

COMPANY H, THIRTY-SEVENTH REGIMENT - EIGHTH RESERVE,

37th Regiment

Organization - Service in the Field - Roll of the Company


37th Regiment, Co. H.

COMPANY H
, of the Eighth Reserve, was the first company recruited in Clarion county with a view to entering the war. It was recruited at Strattanville April 30, 1861, by Captain William Lemon, at which time fifty-four men joined the company.* Before being mustered into the State service at Pittsburgh, about the 28th of June, the company was increased to seventy-five men, and when mustered into the United States service at Washington on Meridian Hill, July 27, 1861, it numbered eighty-four men.

Company H was recruited for the three months service and proceeded from Clarion to Camp Wilkins near Pittsburgh. It was not accepted. It removed from Camp Wilkins to Camp Wright, twelve miles above Pittsburgh on the Allegheny River. Here it remained with forty-two other companies, which had been recruited for three months service, but not accepted. None of the companies, except those belonging to the Erie Regiment, had any regimental organization. Colonel John W. McClane was in command of the camp. Early in June General McCall visited the camp and selected the companies to form the Eighth Regiment. Captain Lemon's company was designated as Company H of this regiment, and on the 28th of June it was organized and officered as follows: George S. Hays, M.D., of Allegheny county, colonel; S.D. Oliphant, lieutenant-colonel, and J.B. Gardner, major.

The regiment having been armed and uniformed at Camp Wright, it was ordered to Washington on the 20th of July. By rail it went to Harrisburg; there it received other equipments, and proceeded thence to Baltimore. At Baltimore it received tents, and then went on to Washington, where it arrived July 23,and went into camp on Meridian Hill, where it was mustered into the service of the United States, July 27.

It remained here till August 2,when it was ordered to the Reserve Camp at Tenallytown. At Tenallytown the Eighth was assigned to the First Brigade, commanded by Brigadier General John F. Reynolds. At this time the Eighth numbered eight hundred and ninety men, armed with muskets of improved pattern and with rifles. Company H numbered eighty-two men; it had eighty-four when mustered in July 27, but two had deserted July 29, leaving the number stated. Soon after being assigned to the First Brigade the regiment was ordered to support the Seventh, which was on picket duty at Great Falls, and was being shelled vigorously by the enemy. The Eighth remained on duty in that vicinity several days, and during that time Company H was initiated into the hardships, but not into the horrors of war; that ordeal was reserved for it till after having experienced the vicissitudes of a winter in camp, as a part of a mighty invading army; an army destined to be a triumphant and magnanimous army, in the achievements of which Company H, with the other twenty-five companies recruited wholly or in part in Clarion county, was to bear such a part as could only be borne by an efficient organization of patriotic men.

On the 9th of October the regiment crossed the Potomac to Langley, Va., and took position, with the division, in line with the Army of the Potomac. Here it went into winter quarters. While in its winter camp the Eighth was thoroughly drilled and instructed by its officers. On the 20th of December, the regiment, with the brigade, marched five miles to Difficult Creek, but hearing the guns of the enemy who had engaged the Third Brigade at Dranesville, General Reynolds started with his brigade on a double quick to assist General Ord. He reached the field in time to see the steady fire of Ord's victorious troops scatter the rebels and drive them from the field.

After breaking up winter quarters the regiment moved to Hunter's Mills, and, under orders to concentrate to embark for the Peninsula, thence to Alexandria. While encamped at Alexandria the division was attached to McDowell's First Corps, and remained in front of Washington, going from Alexandria to Manassas, thence to Warrenton Junction, and thence to Falmouth. From Falmouth, Reynolds moved across the river and occupied Fredericksburg, and then commenced an advance on the Richmond and Potomac Railroad. The brigade was then recalled, and sent by water to the Peninsula. The regiment landed at White House, and joined McClellan's army at Gaines's Mill.

Meantime on the 20th of May, 1862, before embarking, Lieutenant Wetter, of Company H, was promoted to adjutant. Adjutant Wetter was well known throughout Clarion county as Major Wetter.

June 26,1862, at Mechanicsville, the Eighth entered upon its stern work of offering human life upon its country's altar. On that day began the terrible experience of guard, and march, and struggle, and bivouac for Company H.

During the Seven Days' fight Company H had some severe fighting at Mechanicsville, Gaines's Mill, White Oak Swamp, and Charles City Cross Roads, Colonel Lemon, Adjutant Wetter, and Lieutenant A.H. Beck were wounded at Charles City Cross Roads, June 30, 1862. Adjutant Wetter was subsequently wounded, with loss of leg, at Thoroughfare Gap, August 18, 1862, and he resigned December 28, 1863. Colonel Lemon was mustered out with the regiment, May 24,1864.

At Bull Run, Hiram McKendree was killed August 29. At South Mountain the company was engaged, and Wolfgang Heppinger was killed September 14. At Antietam the Eighth occupied the center, being with General Meade. The artillery fire of the enemy beat back the Reserve with severe loss. Company H had Daniel Barr killed, and Jacob Noll and William A. Sipler wounded, September 17.

At Fredericksburg, December 13, the loss of the company was as follows: Colonel Lemon, Captain Keatley, Wilson M. Dorey, Joseph Owen, and Joseph Hoover, all wounded. Owen lost a leg, and Hover died from his wounds.

During the battle of the Wilderness Company H had the following wounded: Stephen D. Myers, William Crooks, Daniel McNany, William O'Brien, and Warren Whitehill. George W. Stover was wounded at Spottsylvania Court House, May 12,1864.

During the time the company was in service the following died from wounds received in battle. The dates and names of the battles are unknown to the writer: Robert Cunningham, John Peters, and William B. Showers. The following were discharged for wounds; date and battle not known: A.J. Galloway, A.M. Brenneman, Carson R. Crisman, Calvin Basim, loss of leg; Albert J. Goble, J.W. Henderson, William Maloney, John M. Ross, John H. Sweeney, John H. Vensil, Daniel Walters, and John Young.

The company went out with eighty-four men. It received six recruits. Captain William Lemon and Lieutenant Wetter were promoted to field officers. Twenty-nine were wounded, four were killed - one accidentally and three in battle; four died from wounds; eleven died of disease; twelve were discharged for wounds, and seven for other causes; twenty-five were transferred; one was taken prisoner; one was not on the muster-out roll; five resigned; three deserted; and twenty-one, including the one prisoner, were mustered out with the regiment May 12,1864. Lieutenant Beck and Lieutenant Dunkle have both been sheriff of Clarion county.

COMPANY E, THIRTY-NINTH REGIMENT - TENTH RESERVE.

39th Regiment


Organization - Route to the Field - Service in the Field - Losses - Record of Hugh Wilson - Roll of Company.

ON Friday of the May court in 1861, Brigadier-General R. Laughlin, commanding the First Brigade of the Twelfth Division of the Pennsylvania Militia, organized a company at Clarion under the militia act of 1849. The company was named the "Clarion River Guards," and J.B. Knox, esq., was chosen captain. General Laughlin had letters from the brigade inspector to proceed with the organization of companies in the absence of that officer. The Clarion River Guards encamped at Curllsville with other companies of the brigade early in June, 1861. Captain Knox was commissioned in the State service on the 14th of June, and on the 24th of June he sent out written orders from Clarion to the members of the company which he had recruited, notifying them to report at that town, and be ready to move to Pittsburgh on the 1st of July. Almost the entire company reported, and they proceeded by way of Reidsburg and Curllsville to Watterson's Ferry, where they got aboard an old canal boat, and floated down the Allegheny River to Kittanning. From there they proceeded by rail to Camp, Wright, where they arrived on the 3d of July. On the 4th the company took a holiday, and most of the men spent the day in Pittsburgh, as Camp Wright was only twelve miles above the city. On the 5th of July eighty-one men of the Guards were sworn into the service of the State, making with Captain Knox, .a total of eighty-two men.

On the 15th of July the company was joined by fifteen other members, who, being mustered in, increased the roster of the company to ninety-seven men; officered as follows: J.B. Knox, captain; David R. Craig, first lieutenant; Valentine Phipps, second lieutenaut; and other officers as noted in the roster which follows this sketch.

At Camp Wright the Clarion River Guards were assigned to the Tenth Regiment Pennsylvania Reserves, and designated as Company E. The Tenth had been partly organized in the latter part of June at Camp Wilkins, also near Pittsburgh. Camp Wilkins was very unhealthful on account of its uncleanliness; however, good, wholesome rations were plentifully and regularly supplied, and immediately after entering camp the men were supplied with a superior grade of blankets. That portion of the regiment which had assembled at Camp Wilkins removed to Camp Wright on the 1st of July, and on the arrival of those troops which completed the regiment, the organization was perfected, and the officers who had been elected at Camp Wilkins proceeded to drill and discipline the troops. The officers were, colonel, John S. McCalmont, a regular army officer, from Venango county, also a West Point graduate; lieutenant-colonel, James T. Kirk, formerly captain of Company D; and major, Harrison Allen, formerly captain of Company H.

The regiment was ordered to Cumberland, Md., July 18. It proceeded to Huntingdon, thence to Bedford Springs, by rail. Here the order was countermanded and the regiment was dispatched hastily to Harrisburg where it was mustered into the United States service July 21, antedating all other Clarion county companies in that respect. Captain Lemon's company was the first recruited, the first in camp, the first to enter the State service, and the first to reach Washington, but Captain Knox's company was the first to enter the United States service. It was mustered in the same day the battle of Bull Run was fought, and on account of the anxiety and suspense, it was hurriedly taken to Baltimore late in the afternoon of July 22. It took possession of the open square near the depot and bivouacked there till the evening of July 23, when with loaded guns and fixed bayonets it marched to the common south of the city. July 24 it went on to Washington. At the depot it met some New York troops who had been in the battle of Bull Run. The sight of these wounded and maimed men produced a profound impression on the members of the Tenth, and they then began to realize the terrible work upon which they were entering.

The regiment marched about a mile east of the capitol and encamped. On the 1st of August it left this place and proceeded to the reserve camp at Tenallytown. It served a week on picket duty at Great Falls early in September. The regiment was drilled at Camp Tenally, and it also observed the usual camp duty. General McCall pronounced it well drilled. It was assigned to the Third Brigade. Colonel McCalmont first commanded the brigade, but was succeeded by Brigadier-General E.O.C. Ord. The regiment marched into Virginia and took position in line with the army October 10. On the 20th of December the brigade engaged the enemy, under Stuart at Dranesville. The skirmish began a little past noon and resulted in a Federal victory, which had .a good effect on the army, as it served to counteract the bad effect produced by the Union disaster at Ball's Bluff, October 21.The Tenth sustained no loss at Dranesville. Major Allen resigned February 14, on account of ill health, and Adjutant Sion B. Smith was elected major. He was succeeded by Sergeant-Major O.H. Gaither, who was appointed adjutant.

After several weeks spent in moving from place to place in the early spring of 1862, the Reserves were attached to General McDowell's command, which was charged with the defense of Washington. They were now lying in the vicinity of Fredericksburg, which place they had reached via Alexandria, Fairfax, Centreville, and Manassas. While in the neighborhood of Fredericksburg General Ord was transferred from the command of the Third Brigade to the command of a division, and Brigadier-General Truman Seymour succeeded to the command of the Third Brigade. Colonel McCalmont resigned May 9, and Lieutenant-Colonel James T. Kirk was elected to succeed him. Captain A.J. Warner, of Company G, was elected lieutenant-colonel. The regiment was detached from McDowell's Corps, and ordered to reinforce General McClellan on the Peninsula. It went by water to the White House on the Pamunky. Having marched from the White House to the vicinity of Mechanicsville, the Tenth was attached to the corps commanded by General Fitz John Porter, which occupied the left bank of the Chickahominy. The battle of Mechanicsville was fought on the 26th of June. In that sanguinary struggle Company E received its first baptism of fire, and was consecrated to the cause of the Union by the blood of the first of its members who were killed in battle.

During the battle of Mechanicsville the Tenth lay close to the right of the road leading into Mechanicsville. It faced up the Chickahominy, and looked down into Beaver Dam Creek, which flows into the Chickahominy a short distance below the bridge over which the road passes which has just been mentioned. The Ninth lay on the left of the Tenth and connected with it at the road near the bridge, where there was an embankment by an old mill. The Union troops were on this side of Beaver Dam Creek facing Mechanicsville, and the Confederates on the Mechanicsville side. The creek is here sluggish. On both sides of it the ground is swampy, and was at that time covered with a growth of underwood. On the Mechanicsville side the distance from the brow of the hill down the slope to the creek bottom is about eighty rods. Down this slope the enemy would have to march to attack the Federal troops. Meantime the Tenth had improved its time by digging rifle pits along the slope on its side of the creek. This was its first experience in that line of duty. The work was directed by Captain McDaniel, of Company D, and Lieutenant Joseph B. Pattee, of Company B. As soon as they were completed a portion of the regiment was posted in these pits, while another part was placed in position in the woods to the right of them. Company C and Company I were put forward as skirmishers. Just in the rear of the Tenth was stationed Easton's Battery. Thus stood facing each other, these two portions of two great armies. They were soon to enact the first carnival of death in which many of them had ever borne a part, and as the men nervously, fearfully, resolutely, and bravely grasped their weapons of death and anxiously awaited the moment when the awful silence would be broken, it indeed seemed to many of them the "pause of carnage - the brink of fate."

The Confederates advanced down the slope on the Mechanicsville side of the creek, along the road and through the fields; but scarcely had they began the descent when Easton's Battery belched forth its iron hail and poured into their ranks a rapid and constant fire. Still on they came until within rifle range, when they were met with a terrible fire from the rifle pits and from the banks along the old mill dam.

They fought hard, but human flesh and blood could not endure such terrible slaughter, and they were forced back up the slope. They rallied and came on again to the attack; struggling desperately and frantically to turn the tide of victory toward their hoped for Confederacy. They concentrated their efforts to pass the bridge and break the Union line, but they were met by men as brave and efficient as themselves. Every attack was repulsed with remarkable vigor by the Ninth and the Tenth, and with broken columns and slaughtered warriors, the enemy was driven from the field, when night mercifully put an end to the conflict. The enemy had gained nothing in this battle, and the result was due largely to the Reserve and to Easton's Battery. Schmucker says:

"The Pennsylvania Reserves on the left, commanded by Seymour and Reynolds, also fought with much heroism, and succeeded in defeating the attempts of the rebels to cross the bridge over the Chickahominy."


In this battle the Tenth preserved its line intact, and the troops were in an exultant mood when night brought the battle to a close.

Captain Knox's Company E lost two men. Both were killed. They were John C. Phillips and James G. Treyzulany. This being the first battle for Company E, the sketch details the movement of the regiment. Notes of subsequent battles will be made mainly, with reference to the company only.

About half past three o'clock P.M., June 27,the company became engaged in the bloody battle of Gaines's Mill. During the struggle it had two men killed - Alpheus Reynard and Amos Kieser. The following were wounded: Lieutenants Valentine Phipps, James L. Wray, and Charles McLaughlin; Corporal Samuel Waley and Samuel S. Wilson; Privates Mathew Black, Thomas Henderson, Daniel Keely, Patrick McLaughlin, George Stiner, John H. Sloan, David Whitehill, Elliott G. Walter, and David Yates - fourteen in all. The wounds of Mathew Black, Thomas Henderson, and John H. Sloan proved fatal. Lieutenant Charles McLanghlin, Sergeant F.M. Lewis, and Private Elliott G. Walter were taken prisoners The regiment made a valiant and effective charge about five o'clock, and when the battle ceased, it closed its broken ranks and retired across the Chickahominy.

In the fighting at Charles City Cross Roads, June 30, Sebastian Cook, Henry Miller, and George W. Wilson were wounded. On account of their wounds Cook and Wilson were discharged. No further losses were sustained by the company during the Seven Days' fight.

The regiment was at Malvern Hill, but was not seriously engaged in the fight. Burton Turney was taken prisoner July 1, 1862. From Malvern Hill it went to Harrison's Landing, where Major Sion B. Smith resigned, and Captain Knox, of Company E, was promoted to major, August 15, 1862, and on the same day Lieutenant Phipps became captain of the company.

During the second battle of Bull Run, on the 29th of August, Company E had the following wounded: Second Lieutenant N.B. McWilliams, and Privates Celin S. Kapp and Davis McBride. Kapp's wounds proved fatal. The regiment was now under Pope in the "Army of Virginia." On the 31st of August Hugh Wilson* was taken prisoner.

While joining in the stubborn contest which the Tenth sustained at South Mountain, September 14, Company E had three wounded - Sergeant George F. Kapp, and Privates Fred Brenneman and David Yates.

Immediately after the battle of Antietam, in which the company took part without loss of any kind, Major Knox was promoted to lieutenant-colonel, and Captain Ayer, of Company I, succeeded him as major. On the hard-fought field of Fredericksburg, Lieutenant-Colonel Knox led the Tenth, and was highly commended for his skill and bravery. Fredericksburg was fought December 13, and in this engagement Company E suffered severely. Sergeants Allen W. Corbett and Thomas Vausden, and Privates John Disel and Daniel V. Jones were killed. The following fifteen were wounded: First Sergeant F.M. Lewis; Sergeants John D. Lyon and Samuel D. Grable; Corporal George B. Kieser, David Craig, and Harrison Whitehill, and Privates Fred Brenneman, Henry C. Barr, James K. Clark, William R. Livingstone, Henry Miller, George Stiner, David Smith, Robert Whitehill, and James W. Ganoe. James K. Clark was discharged for wounds here received. David Smith, Robert Whitehill, and William Young were captured. May 1, 1863, William R. Shippen was promoted to regimental quartermaster.

The Tenth reached Gettysburg at nine o'clock, July 2,1863, having spent the winter and spring in and around Washington, and having been ordered to join the Fifth Corps in its northward march to assist in repelling the rebel invasion of Pennsylvania. In the afternoon of July 2 the regiment was engaged near Round Top and between that point and Little Round Top. It was also engaged on the 3d. The regiment lost two killed and four wounded. James G. Wyon, of Company E, was one of the wounded.

On account of ill health, Lieutenant-Colonel James B. Knox resigned November 23, 1863, and Major Ayer took command. On the 27th of February, 1864, Major Ayer was commissioned lieutenant-colonel.

On the 6th of May, 1864, in the Wilderness, Jacob Raifsnider was killed, and Reynolds Bole wounded. On the 9th of May Reed M. Mills was wounded, and on the same day, at Laurel Hill, Silas Davis was mortally wounded. On the 6th, Colonel Ayer was severely wounded, and being borne from the field, Captain Phipps commanded the regiment. Raifsnider was the only one of the regiment killed. On the 30th of May, 1864, Corporal David Craig was wounded. Captain Phipps was breveted major on the field at the Wilderness. The company was mustered out at Pittsburgh June 11,1864. Of Company E, the following are known to have died since the war: Colonel Knox, Tolbert Dale, John D. Lyon, Reed Mills, Clarence Wilson, Adam Rankin, William Vesey, John M. Laughlin, and Davis McBride. Of these Lyon, Mills, and McBride died violent deaths. Lyon was killed by a log rolling on him; Mills by a chain breaking and hitting him on the head, and McBride by a horse falling on him.

Colonel Knox was elected president-judge in 1881, for the Clarion-Jefferson district. He died at Brookville, where he had been holding court. Captain Phipps was once elected county commissioner for Clarion county.

Of this company, let it be observed, it numbered all told one hundred and sixteen men; two of its members were promoted to field officers; one was breveted; three resigned; ten were killed in battle; thirty-eight were wounded; five died from wounds; six died of disease; four were discharged for wounds; twenty-two were discharged for sickness and other causes; two were discharged by sentence of court martial; two deserted; eight were taken prisoners; thirty were transferred; and forty were mustered out with the regiment.

Bates says of the regiment:
"The remnant of this brave and once strong body of men, which had fought in nearly every battle in which the Army of the Potomac had been engaged, and which was not excelled in valor by any other organization of the division, was mustered out of service at Pittsburgh."

* In volume I of Bates's "History of Pennsylvania Volunteers" on page 834 the remark opposite the name "Hugh Wilson" reads,
"Deserted August 26, 1862."
Hugh Wilson did not desert. In the autumn of 1861 he was prostrated with typhoid fever. In December he joined the regiment and went into active service. The effect of the fever and subsequent exposure rendered him unfit for service during a portion of the spring and summer of 1862. While suffering from yellow jaundice he was offered a discharge, but refused to accept it. At Harrison's Landing, being much worse, he, applied for a discharge, but did not get one. He continued to grow weaker, until at the time of the series of battles beginning August 24 and ending September 1, he was so worn down and exhausted by chronic diarrhea that he could not endure the fatigue of that succession of engagements. On the 29th, while the regiment was making a rapid march toward Washington, Wilson found it impossible to keep pace with it, and he was left on its line of march. He wearied along to the water, drank, seemed revived, and tried to get back into the Union lines. He tramped around and hid from the enemy until some time in the morning of the 31st of August, when a body of Confederates came upon him, and he was captured. He was paroled and sent to Harper's Ferry; thence to Parole Camp, at Columbus, Ohio. About the 1st of December, 1862, he was exchanged, and being considered incapacitated for infantry service, he was transferred on a special order from the War Department to the mounted service, and assigned to Battery C, Third United States Artillery, and mounted in General Custer's Brigade, Kilpatrick's Division of Cavalry, Army of the Potomac. The officer commanding Company E certified Wilson to the commander of Battery C as having a correct record. In 1867 or 1868 Wilson applied for the one hundred dollars additional pay due him. He was astonished to receive notice from the War Department that he was on the rolls as a deserter. He applied to the commissioned officers of Company E, who promptly made affidavit that Wilson was not a deserter. He thereupon received his additional pay, and is now a pensioner. The subject of this note is known throughout Clarion county as Cal. Wilson, He is a respected resident of Cullensburg borough, and is now a justice of the peace. W.A. BEER.

COMPANY K, FIFTY-SEVENTH REGIMENT.

Captain Jacob Shick, of Redbank township, was one of the leading citizens of Clarion county, ready to respond to the call of our president in 1863. He recruited a company of sixty-five men in the vicinity of New Bethlehem, which was designated Company K, and attached to the department of the Monongahela in the Fifty-seventh Regiment, and shared in the campaign against Morgan. The company was mustered between the 3d and 8th of July, and mustered out of service August 17,1863. This company, like others of the Fifty-seventh Regiment, which were recruited in Clarion county, was composed of the best citizens of the respective communities from which they went. Their readiness to serve their country, though some were young and some old, is a noble expression of their patriotism and devotion to their country and their homes.

COMPANY C, SIXTY-SECOND REGIMENT, P.V.

62nd Regiment



When Recruited - Organization and Muster - Service in the Field - Death of Colonel Black - Roll of Company.

ON the 4th of July, 1861, Thomas B. Monks recruited a company at Curllsville and Sligo, Clarion county, which was officered as follows: Captain, Thomas B. Monks; first lieutenant, Benjamin Huey; second lieutenant, William G. Lowry; first sergeant, John E. Myers, and other company officers as shown in the accompanying roll.

Authority to recruit a regiment was given Colonel Samuel W. Black by the secretary of war, on the 4th of July, and when Colonel Black was ready to receive recruits Captain Monks's company was ready to enter the regiment. It was taken in wagons to Kittanning, from that place it went on the cars to Pittsburgh. It was mustered into the United States service in Lafayette Hall, Pittsburgh, on the 25th of July, 1861, and soon after proceeded to Camp Cameron, near Harrisburg. At Pittsburgh the company was designated Company C, of Colonel Black's regiment, which was at this time designated the Thirty-third Independent Regiment, and was Organized as follows: Samuel W. Black, of Pittsburgh, colonel; F.T. Lehman, of Pittsburgh, lieutenant-colonel, and J.B. Switzer, of Pittsburgh, major. Colonel Black had served in the Mexican war as lieutenant-colonel, and Lieutenant-Colonel Lehman was afterward made colonel of the One Hundred and Third.

The war department issued orders to recruit troops, but the governor of the States claimed the right to commission all the officers of the troops raised in their respective Commonwealths. This controversy between the national and State authorities was not settled till late in the fall of 1861. On the 19th of November the war department issued an order placing all independent regiments on the same footing as other State troops. The governor then immediately commissioned the officers of the "Thirty-third," and on its being adopted as a State organization, it was designated the Sixty-second Pennsylvania. The commissions bore date July 4, 1861. After spending a few weeks at Camp Cameron the regiment proceeded to Baltimore, and thence to Washington. It took up quarters at Camp Rapp, on Kendall Green, in the northern suburbs of the city. Here the regiment was armed and equipped for service. Six companies were furnished with the improved Springfield rifles. The other six had smooth-bore muskets. Company C had muskets at first, but were afterward supplied with rifles. The regiment crossed the Potomac on the 11th of September, and was assigned to the Second Brigade of Porter's Division. It was camped near Fort Corcoran. The officers immediately began to drill the troops, but little progress was made in this line, as the men were almost constantly on duty, making roads and entrenchments, and in cutting away the pine forests in the vicinity of Arlington Heights. The Confederates had occupied Munson's Hill, but they fell back and the lines of our army were advanced and re-formed. In the new line the camp of the Sixty-second was located near Falls Church on the Alexandria, Loudon and Hampshire Railroad. It lay here a few weeks, when it moved to Minor's Hill and went into winter quarters, in Camp Bettie Black, named in honor of the colonel's youngest daughter. At Camp Bettie Black drill and discipline were rigidly enforced. The routine observed was squad drill from six to nine A.M., company drill from ten A.M. to twelve M., and battalion drill from one to five P.M., daily. The entire division was also drilled, and occasionally a sham battle was had. Other exercises were observed, and the soldiers felt relieved when spring came with its duties in the field. Before leaving Pittsburgh the regiment received a present of a flag from the ladies of that city. It received the State colors at Hall's Hill in December. On the 6th of November First Lieutenant Benjamin Huey, of Company C, resigned, and on the 12th of that month Second Lieutenant William G. Lowry succeeded him. The company lost a number of other men during the fall of 1861 and the winter of 1861 -62. On the 3d of August John Hubert and William Flick deserted. On the 20th of August Abraham Mock and Alexander Craig were discharged. William Ong deserted from the company on September 1 and joined Company K, of the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth P.V. George W. Springer deserted on the 28th of September. John Karns died at Washington, D.C., October 15. John Barlett died at Georgetown, D.C., November 6, and Andrew Barlett died near Hall's Hill on the i6th of the same month. Simeon Callen was discharged on surgeon's certificate December 16. Jackson McCannaha died at Washington, D.C., October 15, and Tate Henry was discharged March 10, 1862. Corporal Robert A. Lowry accidentally shot himself with his brother William G. Lowry's revolver, February 1, 1862. The greater part of this loss was sustained as a result of a malignant form of camp fever which prevailed in the camp in the early part of the winter. From the date of its entering the service to March 10, when the army moved upon the enemy, Company C had lost fourteen men. When armed and equipped the company numbered 101 men. It received two recruits August 20, 1861; five January 28,1862, and one on the 7th of February, 1862, making a total enrollment of 109 men. March 10, 1862, it numbered ninety-five men, some of them sick.

When the army moved upon the works of the enemy at Manassas, March 10, it found them abandoned. The Sixty-second was halted at Fairfax Court House. The army was to be transferred to the Peninsula, so the regiment left Fairfax on the 15th of March and proceeded to Alexandria. It embarked upon transports and proceeded to Fortress Monroe, where it went into camp near the little village of Hampton, which Magruder had destroyed. It was soon put on duty in a reconnaissance toward Yorktown. The troops returned to camp after having gone as far as Big Bethel. When the army moved upon Yorktown on the 3d of April, the Sixty-second marched up near the enemy's works, and the men of Company C got their first sight of Confederate troops uniformed in gray.

Skirmishing ensued, and the Sixty-second marched forward and took its place in line of battle under fire. The enemy was soon obliged to evacuate. Bates says:
"Colonel Black was first apprised of the evacuation by three deserters, who came in with a flag of truce; the regiment happening to be on picket near the river on the night in which it was made."
The regiment had one man killed and three wounded. Company C suffered no loss. It remained near Yorktown, as did all of Porter's division, till May 8th, when it moved on transports up the York River to a place opposite West Point, where the division landed and went into camp. Here Porter was placed in command of the Fifth Provisional Corps, which was then formed. Morrell assumed command of Porter's division and Brigadier-General Charles Griffin became commander of the Second Brigade. When the army advanced up the Chickahominy, Porter's Corps moved up on the left bank. On the 27th of May Porter's Corps encountered the enemy at Hanover Court House, defeating him and capturing a number of prisoners and arms. Colonel Black earnestly commended the Sixty-second for its conduct in this engagement. The loss was small. At Mechanicsville the regiment moved to support the Pennsylvania Reserves, and was under fire for an hour, but was not actively engaged and sustained no loss. On the morning of the 27th of June, Porter withdrew his troops from Beaver Dam Creek, where the Reserves were engaged, and posted them on an elevation south of Gaines's Mill. Here he awaited the advance of the enemy. The enemy came on and opened the battle about 2 P.M., on the 27th. The Sixty-second Pennsylvania, with the Ninth Massachusetts, was ordered forward to charge across a ravine in front. They advanced under a terrific infantry fire, and driving back the enemy with frightful slaughter, they gained the woods on the opposite side of the ravine. Before the regiment reached the woods Colonel Black was instantly killed. Under the lead of Lieutenant-Colonel Switzer the men pressed on, drove the enemy back, and gained a position considerably in advance of the main line of battle. In this position they were soon discovered, and the enemy pressing hard upon their flank, poured into their ranks a withering enfilading fire, which forced them to withdraw. The Sixty-second reformed in an open field to the right of the woods. The battle was raging furiously. Their ammunition was exhausted. The men had scarcely got into position when General Seymour rode up, and ascertaining that they had no ammunition he directed that their cartridge-boxes be filled at once. He then ordered Colonel Switzer to proceed immediately to the extreme left of the line to help check the furious onset of the enemy at that point. Colonel Switzer led his gallant men on a double quick, over swampy ground towards the Chickahominy, to the point indicated. The ranks of the regiment were sadly thinned, but it was immediately formed and bravely charged up the hill and into the woods, upon entering which, it received a most frightful volley of musketry. It returned the fire, and the battle at this time was most terrible all along the entire line. The right gave way. The Sixty-second was again flanked, and unable to sustain the shock of such vastly superior numbers, it was carried back with the entire army toward the Chickahominy. Desperately fighting to hold his ground, Colonel Switzer was captured and taken away to Libby Prison. In this terrible conflict Company C had James H. Craig, Thomas B. McEwen, Henry Stewart, and John H. Boyles killed. William H. Myers was wounded, and Stephen McTigue was captured.

The Sixty-second reached Malvern Hill June 30. It had no field officers. It was commanded by Captain James C. Hull, of Company A, and supported Battery D, of the Fifth United States Artillery. The Confederates gave special attention to the battery. It sustained a fearful cannonading, which was poured upon it in return for its rapid and effective work. When the enemy's artillery failed to silence the battery, his infantry charged it with frantic bravery, and in the fiery ordeal the Sixty-second suffered severely. Company C's list of killed at Malvern numbered three, viz.: Corporal Andrew Jenkins, Decatur S. Wyman, and William A. Winkett. William B. Wyman, James C. Meanor, William H. Hileman, Andrew Loux, George Rockafellow, Christian Chromer, John, Freeman, George Kribbs, Daniel D. Smith, and John Stover were wounded.

The regiment took part in the engagement at Harrison's Bar on the 31st of July, without much loss. At Gainesville, on the 27th of August, the regiment engaged the enemy, had two men wounded, one of whom was George W. Boyer, of Company C, who was also captured. The regiment was held in reserve during the remaining two days of the disastrous second Bull Run. On the 4th of September the Sixty-second went into camp at its old camp near Minor's Hill, Camp Bettie Black. Few in number and worn down, it presented a strong contrast to the full ranks of strong men who encamped here before starting to the field. At Antietam, on the 17th, Company C suffered no loss. On the 20th of September the regiment crossed the Potomac at Blackford's Ford, captured a few stragglers and returned to the army without loss. It joined the corps, moved to follow up the retreating army. The corps had scarcely started when the enemy attacked the head of the column and the engagement became general. The Union troops were routed. Company C came out without any loss. On the 29th of September the company was in - the engagement at Kearneysville, Va., but had no loss.

On the 10th of September, 1862, Lieutenant W. G. Lowry, of Company C, was promoted to major of the regiment. When Burnside reorganized the army, Colonel Switzer became commander of the Second Brigade, and Lieutenant Colonel Hull took charge of the Sixty-second.

At Fredericksburg the company, in common with the brigade, were in the front and thickest of the fight from Saturday noon, December 13, to Sunday night, when the troops were relieved. Monday they again went to the front. The regiment was reported to have had two officers and five men killed; seven officers and fifty-six men wounded. Samuel H. Moore and William Timms, of Company C, were killed; and Charles Glaze and Joshua Knox were wounded.

The company next took part in the battle of Chancellorsville, escaping without loss, but participating in some of the most desperate fighting during the progress of the battle. At Middleburg the company was also engaged. The Sixty-second reached the bloody field of Gettysburg before daylight, July 2,1863. It fought hard all day, and maintained its reputation for bravery and devotion. During the 3d it occupied a position along the stone wall. Major Lowry, Samuel Dearmott, and William H. Myers, of Company C., were killed; Charles Glaze, Milton C. Goheen, James C. Meanor, Thomas H. Bowser, William Geer, John Konkle, William B. Larimer, and James Pence were wounded, and Thomas H. Bowser, John Konkle, David Fink, and Thomas Kiskaddon were taken prisoners.

On the 12th of July the regiment encountered the enemy at Funkstown, Maryland. The company had no casualties. Returning to Virginia, the troops were engaged at Rappahannock Station, Grove Church, and Mine Run. Thus closed the year, and they went into winter quarters at Licking Run. In 1864, during the Wilderness campaign, the regiment lost heavily. On the 12th of May, at Spottsylvania, Adjutant John E. Myers and Lieutenant William H. Johnston, of Company C, were killed. On the 8th of May George Coursin was wounded, and Leroy Abbott on the 12th.

Colonel Hull being mortally wounded, Captain McClay, of Compay C, assumed command. On the night of the 13th the regiment took position in front of Spottsylvania. It was almost constantly under fire here till the 21st of May. It engaged the enemy at North Anna about noon of that day. On the 2nd of June it engaged the enemy at a place near Tolopotomy Creek. On the 3d it performed signal service duty, and lost heavily. In this series of engagements Company C sustained no loss. On the 8th of June it was hotly engaged before Petersburg. Company C had Milton C. Goheen killed. The company was again in battle on the 21st of June at Jerusalem Plank Road, without loss. It served on picket and fatigue duty until the 2nd of July, when, its term of service having expired, it was ordered to the rear. On the 4th of July it started from City Point for Pittsburgh, and having reached that city, it was mustered out of service July 13, 1864. Not to particularize further, be it said that Company C was a worthy representative of the patriotic organizations of Clarion county. Its officers were men who led. They were found with their men, and the death of Lowry, Myers, and Johnston emphasizes this declaration.

The writer is indebted to Sergeant David R. Lobaugh for valuable assistance in correcting the attached roll; also in procuring some dates of decided importance. It is not too much to say that Company C, of the Sixty-second Pennsylvania Volunteers, has every reason to be proud of its record. The few who failed to do their whole duty are entirely lost sight of in contemplation of the great majority who won enviable distinction by their devotion and valor. I.M. Shannon, of this company, was elected sheriff of Clarion county in 1882.

COMPANY E, SIXTY-SECOND REGIMENT.

62nd Regiment




When Recruited - Captain Kerr's Dismissal - Service in the Field - Roll.

COMPANY E was recruited at Rimersburg, July 4, 1861, by Captain Thomas Kerr. The organization proceeded by wagons to Kittanning, thence by rail to Pittsburgh, where it was mustered into the United States service July 25, 1861.

The movements of the company, in common with the regiment, are detailed under the title "Company C, Sixty-second Regiment," which chapter immediately precedes this. On account of some trouble relative to the rent of recruiting office at Rimersburg Captain Kerr* was dismissed April 5, 1862, and Sergeant Franklin Sweet succeeded to the command of the company. The first loss in battle which the company suffered was at Gaines's Mill, June 27, 1862. In that struggle James Frier (or Friar), and Joseph McCray were killed; Wilson Crick and James E. Elder were missing. Both are supposed to have been killed. Bates says, Thomas Irvin was discharged March 19, 1862. Some surviving members of the company say he was killed in this battle.

Samuel W. Lobaugh was wounded in the head, being shot through from the back of his head when the regiment was beaten back at the time when Colonel Black was killed. (See preceding chapter.) John B. Fox was wounded in the foot, Neal Lawson in the thigh, Thomas Gatings in the neck, Henry Buchanan in both legs; Lot M. Anderson, George O. Carson, Henry Beer, John A. McKee, and David Mortimer also were wounded; Thomas Gatings, Samuel W. Lobaugh, and Henry Buchanan were captured.

At Malvern Hill, July 1, 1862, Lawson D. Reed was mortally wounded. Samuel Benn, William. Boyd, Thomas Baker, Jonathan Buzzard, Samuel L. Mortimer, and Daniel Punkhard were also wounded; James H. Thomas was missing.

In the attack on Fredericksburg, December 13, William H. Hillis and Robert P. McFadden were wounded. George W. Devore died at Sharpsburg, Md., December 26, 1862. The company did some hard fighting at Gettysburg, July 2 and 3, 1863. James McKinley was mortally wounded. The others wounded were Captain Franklin Sweet, First Sergeant Martin Hartzell; Sergeant William Ransel; and Privates William F. Ferguson, Eli Hastings, Samuel Hours, Alexander Mohney, John Miller, Daniel Punkhard, Samuel Varner, and Thomas A. Work; Corporal John W. Paine was taken prisoner; George McCoy was accidentally shot in the foot by a comrade in camp; he was sent to the hospital. His wound took a serious turn, causing his foot to be amputated, from the effects of which he died February 25, 1864. Punkhard (or Prunkhard) returned to the company June 6, 1864. During the Wilderness campaign Robert T. Barr and Samuel Carson were killed at Spottsylvania Court House, May 12, 1864. William Storey was wounded May 5, Henry Buchanan May 8, Francis Cook, Samuel L. Mortimer, and D.L. McGregor, at Spottsylvania, May 12. Thomas Gatings, James Probasco, and James F. Stewart were wounded at North Anna River. On the 2nd of June Martin V. Hartzel was wounded at Bethesda Church; Hugh Fackender was killed at Cold Harbor June 3, 1864. In addition to those already m1entioned, the company took part in the battles of Chancellorsville, Funkstown, Rappahannock Station, New Hope Church, and Mine Run. The original members of the company, with the original enlistment of the other companies, were ordered to City Point at four P.M., July 2, 1864. Before eight.P.M. the remaining twenty-three men of Company E, Sixty-second Pennsylvania Volunteers were turned over to Company D, of the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth Pennsylvania Volunteers.

In a well written diary of Private Joseph W. Graham, is found the following entry:
"Tuesday, May 10, 1864. - Weather hot. Skirmishing again this morning. About eight A.M. Corporal Thomas Barr, of Company E, killed in front of the works. Ten A.M. our skirmishers advanced in force and drove the enemy out of their rifle pits and took possession of them. When this advance was made we got the body of Corporal Barr and consigned it to its long home. Heavy artillery and infantry firing in front, and the enemy held in check. 7:15 P.M. the enemy made an advance, and our artillery and infantry drove them back."


Relative to the disappearance of Jonathan Buzzard, the same soldier notes on the 9th of May:
"Jonathan M. Buzzard, brigade pioneer of Company E, 62nd P.V., is missing. Supposed to be killed. He was out digging rifle pits for the pickets."


And again,
"May 12. - This day wet all day. At nine A.M., after a short cannonading, the 9th and 32nd Regt's, Mass. Vols. and the 62nd P.V. made a charge on the enemy's works in our front but were repulsed. The 62nd P.V. had their lieutenant-Col. J.C. Hull and Adjutant John E. Myers severely wounded, and Co. E had privates Samuel Carson, Sam Mortimer, Daniel McGregor, and Francis Cook wounded."


On the 14th of May Graham noted:
"Adjt. John Myers, and Samuel Carson dead from wounds."


On the 25th of May he notes:
"Hugh Pastorius, of Co. E, wounded in the foot."


In the following roll under "remarks," the transfers to the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth are noted January 3, 1864. This seems to be an error, but in deference to Bates we leave it unchanged, and give below memorandum in full made by J.W. Graham in his diary:

"Saturday, July 2, 1864. - This day, as, usual, hot. Six o'clock A.M. some shelling done on our part from the mortars, but when it got hot there was a cessation till evening, when it was again resumed. After dark there was some picket firing done. The old men of the 62nd P.V. are getting ready to go home. Four P.M. they are relieved and ordered to City Point, and by 8 P.M. the remaining men of Co. E, 62nd P.V., are turned over to Co. D. 155th P.V., twenty-three being present; 11:30 the old company regiment leave for City Point."


On Sunday the orderly sergeant of Company D, of the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth, assisted by Mr. Graham, made a return of the men which had been transferred, and this return probably gave the date to the record of the transfer. It is with pleasure the writer acknowledges the courtesy and valuable assistance extended to him by Corporal Thomas Gatings and Private William M. Pollock, who have been the means of presenting a comparatively correct roll of the company. The diary of Private Graham, now dead, is indeed valuable, but lack of space prevents expansion on topics therein carefully noted. The company saw hard service. Some of its members were not the most constant, but the great majority were earnest, loyal, and courageous men.

* Captain Kerr had rented a room from Mr. Henry Fox at Rimersburg, which he used as a recruiting office. Not knowing how much the government allowed for rent of office, he negotiated with Mr. Fox to pay a certain sum. When the captain submitted his report his superior officer informed him that the government paid more than the amount agreed upon with Mr. Fox. Accordingly the larger amount was inserted in the report, with the intention to pay Mr. Fox the full amount allowed. Captain Kerr reported to his regiment for duty, after forwarding the account to the Adjutant-General's office in Harrisburg. Meanwhile Mr. Fox, learning that the captain had submitted a larger amount of rent than he (Mr. Fox) had received, at once reported the matter, while Captain Kerr was on duty at the front, all unconscious of having committed any wrong act, the case was made up against him. Military law is relentless, and he had to suffer its penalties.

COMPANY F, SIXTY-THIRD REGIMENT.

63rd Regiment




IN July, 1861, immediately after the battle of Bull Run, Bernard J. Reid, esq., acting under written authority from Colonel Alexander Hays, began to recruit a company of volunteers for the war. Captain Reid's headquarters were at Clarion. On the 5th of September, he left Clarion with forty-seven recruits, marched overland to Kittanning, and thence by rail to Pittsburgh, where he with his company joined Colonel Hays's regiment in Camp Wilkins. Captain Reid was ordered to return immediately to Clarion county, accompanied by Sergeant George W. McCullough, to enlist more men. On the 17th of September they again marched with forty-six new recruits. When they reached Camp Wilkins they learned that the regiment had gone on to Washington. They followed by rail via Harrisburg and Baltimore, and joined the regiment September 21, at Camp Hays, in the eastern suburbs of Washington. At Camp Hays the regiment was armed and equipped for active service, and was numbered and designated the Sixty-third Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers. Captain Reid's company was designated Company F. It was given position at the center of the left wing of the regiment.

The company election was held September 23, 1861, when Bernard J. Reid was elected captain, John G. McGonagle, first lieutenant, Lawrence Eagan, second lieutenant, and Joshua H. Delo, first sergeant. Curtis C. Zink, George W. Fox, John R. Guthrie and George W. McCullough, were appointed, sergeants; John Kuhns, Robert S. Elgin, James Waley, David R. Dunmire, David Irwin, Thomas H. Martin, Adam Potter and John Stewart, Corporal; Ami Whitehall and Samuel K. Richards, musicians; Joseph Lichtenberger, bugler, and Preston H. Moodie, teamster.

Other recruits came into camp and the complement of the company was filled. On the 28th of September the regiment crossed the Potomac and camped on the Leesburg turnpike near Fairfax Seminary, at which point were the headquarters of General Franklin, to whose division the Sixty-third was assigned. The camp here was called Camp Shields. President Lincoln and his wife visited Camp Shields October 4th, and on this occasion Arnold's Battery gave them a salute of fifteen guns. On the 8th of October an election was held under State law in every company of the regiment. This was the first and only time that the soldiers voted in the army, as the Supreme Court decided in the spring of 1862 that soldiers could not legally vote away from their domicile.

On the 9th of October, 1861, the ceremony of formally mustering the regiment into the service of the United States was performed by Lieutenant C. W. Tolles, of the Thirteenth U. S. Infantry. The regiment broke camp October 14th, and moved to a point on the Alexandria and Richmond turnpike, a mile south of Fort Lyon, and five miles from Mount Vernon. This camp was called Camp Johnson. Here the regiment was placed in Brigadier-General C.D. Jamison's Third, Brigade of the Second Division, which was commanded by Major-General Heintzelman. The brigade included the following regiments: The Fifty-seventh Pennsylvania, commanded by Colonel Charles Campbell; the Sixty-first Pennsylvania, by Colonel Rippey; the Sixty-third Pennsylvania, by Colonel Alex Hayes; the Ninety-ninth Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant-Colonel Lujeane; and the One Hundred and Fifth Pennsylvania, by Colonel McKnight. Soon after this the Sixty-first and the Ninty-ninth were transferred to other divisions, and the Eighty-seventh New York and the Twentieth Indiana Volunteers were put into the Third Brigade. In each camp the troops were daily exercised in company and battalion drill; also in camp guard and police duty. After being brigaded the troops entered upon brigade drill, fatigue duty on the earthworks at Fort Lyon, in addition to the exercise and duty previously, mentioned. They were also given regular terms at picket duty out in front about nine miles from camp. They were also engaged in an occasional reconnaissance in force to keep in check raiding parties of the enemy.

Company F's first experience in picket duty was on Hallow Eve in 1861, and continued three days. The company picket line was over a mile in extent. By the default of the officer of the day the company was left on duty without the countersign or any specific instruction, but the men were cool and vigilant and acquitted themselves well for beginners, considering the difficulties.

After the company had gone into winter quarters at Camp Johnson Captain Reid, with other officers, was ordered to return to Pennsylvania on recruiting service. They were placed under orders of Major Dodge, superintendent of recruiting service at Harrisburg. Captain Reid was ordered to Clarion, where, during the month of February, 1862, he recruited and turned over to Major Dodge about twenty men to be mustered in and forwarded to the regiment. March 13, Captain Reid was ordered to close his recruiting office and report to Major Dodge at Harrisburg, where, after settling his accounts, he was ordered to join the regiment. March 17, he reached his company at Alexandria, Va., and the regiment embarked that same day for Fortress Monroe, which place it reached on the 18th. The regiment landed alongside the Monitor which had vanquished the Merrimac in a terrible conflict nine days before. The troops went into camp near the ruins of Hampton, which had been burned by the Confederates to prevent the Federal soldiers from occupying it. The whole army was to concentrate here for the advance up the Peninsula to Richmond. It had just been divided into corps. Company F belonged to the Third Corps. Heintzelman commanded the corps and General S.C. Hamilton had succeeded to the command of the division. He was succeeded April 4 by General Phil Kearney, when the army took up its line of march to Yorktown. In the afternoon of April 5,Company F encamped in an open field in plain sight of the fortifications at Yorktown. The whole division had halted and was encamped within easy cannon range of the enemy. The infantry rested on their arms. Meantime some of our artillery became engaged with the enemy, whose return missiles killed several of our artillery horses and men. A detail of Berdan's sharpshooters soon put our troops in comparative safety for a few days. They picked off the enemy's gunners and almost silenced his guns. Little demonstration was made by the rebels until toward evening on Sunday, April 6, when they sent some solid shot down into the clover fields to remind the Union troops that the fortifications were still occupied. Being saluted with these unwelcome visitors, Colonel Hays, seeming to desire to express his contempt for the proceedings, ordered the Sixty-third out for dress parade in plain sight of the rebels. The ceremony was performed in detail, the band "beat off" with the Star Spangled Banner and Yankee Doodle, the salutes were given and parade dismissed, then the rebels acknowledged the compliment by sending a large conical shell over the heads of the regiment into a piece of woods half a mile beyond it. That was the regiment's last dress parade. On the 8th of April the cannonading continued and some picket firing took place. On the 9th General Jamison took the Sixty-third on a reconnaissance along the wooded banks of Warwick River, where the enemy was constructing earthworks. A brisk skirmish ensued, in which Sergeant David Irwin, of Company F, was killed. He was the first soldier in the Clarion county companies to be killed in battle, and the first of the Third Brigade to fall in the Peninsular campaign. On this occasion the company's conduct deserves special mention. It was marching parallel with the wooded bank of the stream and probably seventy-five yards from it. The two rear companies had been left some distance back on the main road. Thus company F was the last in the line. As the company advanced in this position the rebels on both sides of the stream opened fire upon the regiment from their concealment in the timber. By that volley Sergeant Irwin was mortally wounded. The regiment was halted and faced to the front. By this movement Company F occupied the extreme left of the regiment. Captain Reid was at his place in front of the center of the company. Suddenly all of the companies to the right of Company F broke ranks and took to the nearest trees. This action seemed contagious, and Company F also broke ranks and hurried to the shelter of the timber. Captain Reid thinking this the effect of a sudden panic, and not approving of that kind of conduct in face of the enemy, shouted "Company F stand your ground!" Instantly every man came back to his place in line as if on parade. Just then the colonel came down the line from the extreme right. He complimented Company F for its gallantry, and said that he had ordered the regiment to break ranks. Captain Reid had not heard the order. After further exchange of shots, rebel reinforcements were seen to arrive, and the regiment was marched back to camp, Company F bearing its dying sergeant with it. That afternoon the Union camps were withdrawn to the swampy woods, out of reach of the enemy's lighter guns, but still within range of their heavy ones.

For four weeks the regiment occupied this new camp. During their stay here the soldiers became very familiar with the hideous music of screaming shells and crashing tree tops. The company performed picket duty, dug trenches, and stood under arms for the protection of others so engaged. It was almost constantly under artillery fire and frequently skirmished with the enemy's infantry. Many suffered from disease while here, as there was a dearth of pure water, and the camp had not adequate drainage.

On the night of May 3, 1862, General Jamison selected the left wing of the Sixty-third for an important and perilous duty. The general desired to place a squad of picked sharpshooters in a rifle pit to be dug within five hundred yards of the principal rebel fort. This had been twice attempted on a previous night. It must be done now. The grand bombardment was to begin May 4, by the Federal gunboats and the heavy siege guns. General Jamison was officer of the trenches for that day. The sharpshooters must be in the pits to pick off the gunners and silence their heaviest guns, and it devolved on him to see that the pits were dug at the point previously determined upon, and that the sharpshooters were in them ready for duty on the morning of the 4th. The left of the Sixty-third was selected for this point, and the right for a similar duty at another point. Company F was a part of the left. The five companies were commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Morgan, and they were led by General Jamison in person to a sheltered nook near the place selected for the pits. Here they waited till the moon went down, about midnight. The shells of the enemy screamed over their heads, and the air was made livid by burning fuses. When he deemed it dark enough the general led them silently up a gentle slope, on the top of which the work was to be done. Three companies halted below the crest of the slope and stood there under arms. Company B, commanded by Captain Kirkwood, were armed with picks and spades to dig the pit. Company F was given the post of honor. It was ordered to deploy a little beyond the crest and to hold the ground at all hazards, till the pit would be finished. The company numbered about seventy men. When it started on what seemed a march to almost certain death General Jamison said to Colonel Morgan: "O, God! it is hard, but it has to be done!" Company F marched forward to its post of duty without flinching. It lay, and waited, and watched for two hours with fifty men on the ground designated by General Jamison, and twenty picked men led forward by Captain Reid as skirmishers. As they lay and watched, the rebels were sweeping the horizon in all directions with the fiercest cannonading that had been witnessed thus far in the campaign. Company F was so close to the enemy's fort that the men could distinctly hear the commands given to the gunners. At length the pit was completed, the new made embankment was disguised with pine bushes, and half a dozen sharpshooters entered the pit and were left to their fate, out of reach of help when the general bombardment would begin. Company F was called back, and on its way to camp General Jamison warmly congratulated the troops for their successful and bloodless work. The men did not retire. When about to do so the daylight came, and with it loud and wild cheering. The enemy had evacuated their fortifications. The furious cannonading was done merely to divert attention from their departure, which began on the previous day and was completed in the early morning. The guns had been manipulated by a small rear guard. Our army pursued the enemy on the 4th of May, and that evening our cavalry found him entrenched at Williamsburg. On the 5th a portion of our troops gave him battle at that place. The Sixty-third was under artillery fire in the afternoon for some time. It was deployed to relieve some troops in front just about dusk. It was under infantry fire only a short time when darkness caused the firing to cease. The troops lay on their arms that night ready for the fray next morning. During the afternoon the regiment had unslung and stacked their knapsacks, haversacks, canteens, and blankets, as some fast marching had to be done. When Company F halted, its equipments were three miles in the rear, and the mud on the road was knee deep, as it had rained all the night before. The men had no supper and no means of getting breakfast. Captain Reid called for ten volunteers to go with him to get their outfits. These eleven went back and loaded up with all they could carry. They got back to the front some time before day, and Company F was enabled to satisfy both hunger and thirst, while the other companies had to wait till the wagons came up. The morning revealed the fact that the enemy had evacuated Williamsburg. The One Hundred Fifth and the Sixty-third were the first regiments to enter the city. The march into Williamsburg was a sad one. The soldiers passed over the dead and dying of both armies. The dead were buried and the wounded taken to William and Mary College, where they were cared for. The unfortunate blue and gray were mercifully treated side by side.

Company F was next engaged May 31st at Fair Oaks or Seven Pines, one of the bloodiest battles of the war. At two o'clock that day, Saturday, May 31st, the company was engaged in burying Corporal Dummire, who died the night before. When Rev. Captain Danks, acting chaplain, was reciting the funeral rites at the yet unfilled grave, the wind from the west bore to the ears of the men the crack and roar of a furious battle in the direction of Richmond. The company was convinced that desperate work had taken the place of the light skirmishing of the past few days, so they hastily filled the grave and returned to camp, where they found Colonel Morgan and seven companies under arms and ready for orders to march. Orders soon came. The regiment was then near Meadow Station, eleven miles from Richmond and four from Fair Oaks, where Casey's division of Keyes's Corps had been assaulted by overwhelming numbers, and after a gallant resistance was falling back before the enemy.

The Third Brigade marched on a double quick up the railroad track two miles, then along the Williamsburg road through the mud another mile, On the last mile the brigade met a stream of wounded men and fugitives, driven down the road by the shot and shell of the enemy. Disabled artillery with empty caissons was hurried toward the rear, while fresh guns and full caissons went rolling forward to take their places. A short distance beyond the forks of the road at Seven Pines, General Jamison, amid a perfect storm of shot and shell, deployed the eight companies of the Sixty-third on the west of the Williamsburg road, and the One Hundred Fifth on their right, extending across the road, and gave the order to advance. It should here be observed that the other two companies of the Sixty-third were with Colonel Hays on fatigue duty when the march up the railroad began, and had not joined the main body when this advance was ordered. The troops moved forward through a difficult abatis and a belt of standing timber, and soon reached the edge of the open ground where Casey's tents still stood, and where his redoubt and its battery of artillery had been captured, and its guns added to the rebel artillery, which was disputing Jamison's advance. The artillery was supported by heavy masses of infantry posted behind rifle pits, and long ranks of cord wood, from the shelter of which they kept up a furious fire of small arms at short range. The Union side of the open ground was held by a wreak line formed by some companies from the Third and Fifth Michigan, of Berry's Brigade of the same division, with the Sixty-third. These troops had gone in only a short time before the Sixty-third, which reinforced their line and mingled with them in the conflict. Company F had only forty-four men in this battle; the others were on detached duty or sick in camp and at various hospitals. During the first half hour after reaching the front Orderly J.H. Delo, Sergeant R.S. Elgin, and George W. Rhees were killed, and Private F.P. McClosky mortally wounded. During the afternoon Private James McCammon, Peter O'Neill, and Peter Nugent were seriously wounded ; James. McDonald, Andrew McDonald, and Jonathan McCurdy, all privates, were captured. All the Federal troops on the right of the Williamsburg road were forced from their position, and fell back along that road, contesting every inch of the ground; but long before dark the enemy had possession of the road as far back as Seven Pines, which was nearly a mile in the rear of the point occupied by the Sixty-third. General Jamison sent couriers to order the regiment back, to save it from imminent capture, but the orders were not received. The Sixty-third, with the Michigan soldiers, held its line and kept up a constant fire upon the opposing infantry until night came. It had used all of its ammunition, including that of the dead and wounded, which was used to replenish the cartridge boxes of the living. After seeing Elgin, Rhees, and a Michigan soldier shot at his side, Captain Reid took up the rifle and ammunition of the latter and used the weapon until the last cartridge was gone. The last sounds of the conflict indicated to the small body of men here contending that the enemy in force held the turnpike behind it, and that it was enveloped on three sides by the rebel troops. When darkness came the regiment withdrew from the field through the woods diagonally to the left and rear, to avoid encountering the enemy. Captain Kirkwood was the senior captain. The regiment had no field officer, Colonel Morgan having been wounded and borne from the field early in the fight. Captain Kirkwood gave Captain Reid the lead. Aided by a small pocket compass, read, by the light of friction-matches, these officers led the troops safely through the dark woods, and about midnight they rejoined their division, which was holding a second line, with the rest of the army, two miles in the rear of the place where the little fragments of the two Michigan regiments and the Sixty-third Pennsylvania had solitary and alone held the left of the Union front line till darkness closed that day's scene of carnage.

On the next day, June 1st, fresh troops that had arrived in the night took the advance, and the enemy fell back toward Richmond after a short struggle. The division to which the Sixty-third belonged was held in reserve, so Company F was not engaged the second day. The army was kept under arms three or four days, expecting a renewal of the attack, and then the corps took position on the extreme left of the advance line which Casey had held before the battle, and which was strongly entrenched by the Union troops during the first three weeks of June.

Then came the "Seven Days' Battle," commencing June 25th, and ending with the battle of Malvern Hill, July 1, 1862. The battle was opened in our 'immediate front on the 25th by Kearney's and Hooker's divisions being thrown forward to feel the enemy's position on the right wing in the direction of Richmond. General John C. Robinson had succeeded to the command of the Third Brigade, in the place of the gallant General Jamison, who was fatally stricken with fever after the battle of Fair Oaks. The Sixty-third advanced some two or three miles, mostly through swampy woods, and had several lively skirmishes with the enemy's infantry. The artillery on both sides of the advancing Union troops was also giving them attention. When night came the brigade was drawn back about half way to its entrenched camp, and held its line of battle there all night in the woods, occasionally receiving a volley in the dark from the enemy, who had followed it up closely. When daylight came it was ordered back to camp. In that day's skirmishes Company F had Private William Greenawalt killed and Privates P.D. Griffin, John Johnson, and Anthony Greenawalt wounded, each of the last two losing an arm.

In this action, and during the remaining battles of the Seven Days' Fight, Captain Reid acted as major of the regiment, as there was no field officer present for duty but the colonel. From the 26th to the 29th inclusive, during the temporary indisposition of Colonel Hays, Captain Reid was in command of the regiment. Company F was commanded by First Lieutenant George W. McCullough, who, during the previous winter, had been promoted to second lieutenant in place of Lieutenant Eagan, who had resigned, then to first lieutenant on the death of Lieutenant McGonagle, from typhoid pneumonia, June 21,1862.

On the 26th of June Captain Reid was in command of the Sixty-third. The battle of Mechanicsville was raging on the extreme right of the Union line across the Chickahominy. The Sixty-third was led on a reconnaissance in our front, but did not encounter the enemy. It passed over its battle-ground of the previous day. On the 27th the right wing fell back to Beaver Dam, and there fought the bloody battle of Gaines's Mill. The Sixty-third was not engaged on the 2 7th. On the 28th Captain Reid was ordered to report with the Sixty-third to General Fitz John Porter, at Trent House, on the south side of the river, to which point he had withdrawn the whole right wing of the Union army during the night. The Sixty-third was stationed to guard the two bridges over which Porter had crossed the stream, and while Reid, with his regiment, held these points, that officer took up his line of march towards James River - the first step in the celebrated "change of base" determined upon by the general in command, but which none then yet knew of except the corps commanders. The Sixty-third held the bridges and the shores of the Chickahominy that day and in the evening returned to its post on the extreme left of our entrenched front. While the men were at their coffee and hard tack General Kearney visited the camp on foot, and told Captain Reid to have the men supplied with three days' cooked rations and 150 rounds of ammunition during the night. The captain thinking Kearney had made a mistake as to the number, ventured to ask him where the men could put so many. Kearney replied "Anywhere, captain, anywhere; in their knapsacks, their pockets, or their boots! Anywhere so they have them! We will have a good deal of marching to do and they may need them." He also ordered the captain to sees that every officer and man of the regiment sewed a red patch on his hat or cap in a conspicuous position, so that the general could recognize his own troops. That was the origin of the famous red diamond or Kearney Badge. That night the incessant rumbling of artillery wagons and other vehicles over corduroy roads near our camps told very plainly that some general movement was on foot. At daylight of Sunday, June 29,the regiment left the front and fell back nearly a mile, when it halted to make coffee. While breakfasting the soldiers heard the prolonged cheering of the rebel troops, who had taken possession of the earthworks abandoned by McClellan's army. The Third Corps fell back slowly to its old second line, and halted there as a rear guard across the Williamsburg road till the middle of the afternoon, exposed' to the shells of the enemy, who was cautiously feeling his way on our track. General Kearney finally led his troops by a cross road to the upper crossing of the small stream called Whiteoak Creek, which lay between his division and the James River. The other and greater part of the army was to cross lower down. Between the dry banks of this stream was a flat swamp of one hundred yards in width, exceedingly miry and almost impassable by man or beast. A single string of logs enabled foot soldiers to cross single file, and mounted officers had to take the chances of losing their horses in the miry stream. Captain Reid rode one of Colonel Hays's horses, called "Shellbark." When he reached the stream two horses were already dead, having drowned while struggling to get out of the slough. Several others had crossed in safety. "Shellbark" stuck midway, and the captain dismounted in the mire, into which he sank to the waist. He held the horse's nose above water while he plunged and floundered. Meanwhile the division had passed over, and while Reid and "Shellbark" were battling with the mire, the head of the column encountered a body of the enemy, and the rattle of musketry began. Very soon the division returned to the creek in single file and crossed over on the string of logs. General Kearney, rather than risk a general engagement before the trains were all safe, had ordered a countermarch. Soon all the troops had recrossed to take the road to a bridge farther down, and rather than see his horse drown, Captain Reid stayed with him at the risk of capture, and finally succeeded in getting him sale to shore. By this time it was dark, but both found their way to where the corps was bivouacking, on the high grounds beyond the swamp, having crossed below. Monday the corps moved forward at intervals and reached Charles City Cross Roads about noon. It halted in a clover field, where a fierce battle was soon to rage. During the forenoon another portion of the Union army had a contest with Jackson's corps at the lower crossing of the swamp. At Charles City Cross Roads, about two o'clock, heavy masses of the enemy, from the direction of Richmond, deployed in the edge of the woods facing Kearney's troops, and kept up till dark a succession of determined onsets of infantry, aided by numerous batteries of artillery posted advantageously. Thompson's battery of the regular artillery was posted in the clover field occupied by Kearney's division, and the Sixty-third was ordered to support it. Colonel Hays had that morning resumed command, and gallantly did he perform the task allotted to him. Repeated charges of the enemy were repulsed at the point of the bayonet, and the battery was saved from the most desperate attempts to capture it. General Kearney in his, official report of this battle says:
"I have here to call attention to this most heroic action of Colonel Hays and his regiment. The Sixty-third has won for Pennsylvania the laurels of fame."
General Berry wrote concerning the same affair:
"Never was task better done or battery better supported."
In this action Company F had privates John Thompson, Charles Harbst and Jacob I. Delo wounded, the latter mortally. Our troops held their ground till night, and before morning moved on to Malvern Hill, where the last battle of the memorable seven days' fight took place. The battle was fought on the Union side principally by the artillery. The Sixty-third was posted in a depression in the ground, ready to support a battery if needed, but it was not called into action and suffered no loss.

This in brief is the history of Company F to the close of the Peninsular campaign. From Malvern it went to Harrison's Landing.

It is here proper to give an account of Captain Reid's resignation. For a month before arriving at Harrison's Landing he had been suffering with chronic diarrhœa and camp malaria. He was daily growing more feeble. At the battle of Glendale or Charles City Cross Roads he stood for two hours beside The guns of Thompson's battery, while the Sixty-third was lying low, right in front of it, ready to repel charges, and assisted the exhausted gunners in pushing forward their guns after each recoil, so that the flying particles of the shell-flanges, when the guns were discharged over the backs of our men, would not injure them as some had done. The heat of the day and the over exertion under excitement reacted, and Captain Reid became so weak before night that he had to be assisted from the field. However, he remained with the regiment next day at Malvern till towards evening, when by order of the brigade surgeon he was taken with other sick to the field hospital. The next day, for want of ambulances, nearly all the sick at Malvern had to drag through rain and mud as best they could to Harrison's Landing. By the advice of Colonel Hays, and with the approval of General Kearney, Captain Reid. tendered his resignation, which was accepted, and he was honorably discharged August 1, 1862, and he left for home on one of the James River transports August 4, 1862.

Captain Reid informed the writer that his sickness alone would not have induced him to resign. Two years before the war he had been appointed, trustee of the Hetherington lands, and was under $30,000 bonds for the faithful application of the proceeds of the sale. When he entered the army he left all this business with his law collections in the hands of his then law partner, who had just been admitted to the bar and who gave no security, as no security was asked by the senior member of the firm. In the spring of 1862 this party wrote the captain that his mind was becoming affected, and that he thought he would have to abandon the profession. Reid was soon informed by clients and others at home that his partner had closed the office and gone, no one knew where, leaving collections made by him unaccounted for, and all the business going wrong. These matters were laid before his superior officers, and the captain was advised that under the circumstances it was his duty to resign and set matters straight. The absent partner subsequently returned and satisfactorily settled' his accounts. First Lieutenant George W. McCullough succeeded to the command of the company, and Second-Lieutenant George W. Fox was promoted to first lieutenant, and Corporal David Shields to second lieutenant, all on the 4th of August, 1862.

Company F was next engaged at Bull Run, August 29, 1862.Kearney reported the Sixty-third Pennsylvania and the Fortieth New York to have suffered the most loss. Company F had John R. Guthrie, John Thompson, Henry Shoup, killed; and Lieutenant George W. Fox, First Sergeant James Waley, Corporal Thomas H. Martin, and Privates J. Shugart Elder, Martin Castner, E. Highbarger, Daniel O'Neill, Alfred T. Rance, John G. Richards, and James Sample wounded. Fox, Martin, Castner, Highbarger and Richards were discharged afterwards on account of wounds here received.

After the fatal Chantilly, where the heroic Kearney fell, Colonel Hays was promoted to brigadier-general on the 29thof September, and Lieutenant-Colonel Morgan became colonel. Hays won his promotion by his gallant conduct at Bull Run. The company assisted in the defense of Washington till after Antietam. It joined the army near Leesburg, and moved with it to Warrenton. At Fredericksburg it went to the front on the 13th of December, and remained there forty-eight hours under fire till the 15th, when it was relieved, and late at night fell back with the entire army across the river. Its loss was light. William M. Thompson was captured, and Benjamin P. Hilliard, one of the musicians, was wounded. In the battle of Chancellorsville the company was less fortunate. Captain McCullough, First Lieutenant Fenstermacher, Corporal Joseph Loll and Stewart Fulton, and Private James McDonald were wounded on the 3d of May. McDonald was discharged on account of wounds.

The company next took part in the battle of Gettysburg. General Sickles now commanded the corps. On the 1st of July the men could hear the cannon in the contest where the brave Reynolds fell. On receiving the news of the death of Reynolds, Sickles hastened his men forward and reached the battle field at ten o'clock that night. The corps went into bivouac on the Emmittsburg Pike. Scarcely had the men lain down when an order came for the Sixty-third to go on the picket line. On the 2nd the brigade was brought into position on the pike to the right of the cross road leading to Round Top. The Sixty-third was thrown forward on the skirmish line, and was hotly engaged till five o'clock in the afternoon, when it was ordered to the rear to replenish its ammunition, which had been expended. It also needed rest, as it had been on the extreme front and constantly engaged for seven terrible hours. The regiment spent the night of the 2nd on picket to the right of Little Round Top. The dead of our soldiers lay thick around. On the 3d at ten o'clock the regiment was double-quicked to support a battery in the immediate front of Meade's headquarters, where it remained till the battle closed. The loss was slight when we take into consideration its exposed position and the length of time it was engaged. Company F had Lieutenant Fenstermacher, Sergeant John A. Griffin, Corporal Adam Potter, and Private P.D. Griffin wounded, At Kelly's Ford and Mine Run the company met with no casualties.

In the spring of 1864 the regiment became a part of General Hays's Second Brigade, Third Division of the Second Corps. The regiment marched at midnight, May 3d, and camped on the 4th at evening on the old battle ground of Chancellorsville, where the men saw the unburied skeletons of soldiers who fell in that battle one year before. It advanced to the front at 3 P.M., May 5,and was at once engaged, and the battle raged with great fury till, after dark. General Hays was killed, Colonel Danks was wounded. The command of the regiment fell upon Major George W. McCullough, late captain of Company F, who had been promoted major April 5,1864. On the 6th of May the battle was renewed, and in a counter charge sustained by the Third Division Major McCullough was mortally wounded. He died the following day, and added another illustrious name to the long list of Clarion county heroes who had been slain in battle. During these two days the Sixty-third had lost one hundred eighty-six rank and file. It was temporarily consolidated with the One Hundred and Fifth, with Captain Weaver, of Company C, in command. This new body was led through the exciting experiences of the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th, by this officer. On the 11th he was wounded, and Captain Hunter took command. He led the regiment during the severe fighting of the 12th, and assisted in the final and decisive repulse of the enemy at Spottsylvania Court House.

On his return from detached service, Captain Isaac Moorhead assumed command of the regiment. During the Wilderness campaign Company F sustained the following losses: On the 5th First Sergeant James Waley and Corporal James Hamilton were killed. The same day Sergeants Anthony R. Refner and William Hall, Corporal Joseph Loll, James McBride, and William Blair, and Privates Andrew Basom, John Cyphert, Gregory Lawrence, Anthony Torry, and Hugh P. McKee were wounded. Sergeant John A. Griffin was wounded on the 6th, Private William Thompson on the 7th, and Private Jonas Highbarger on the 12th. After the battle Jonas Highbarger and John Den-slinger were missing. Andrew Basom having lost a leg, his wound proved fatal on the 18th of May. William Blair's wounds caused his death on the 21st.

The regiment was later engaged at North Anna River, and again after it crossed Pole-cat River, but Company F sustained no loss. On the 16th of June, before Petersburg, Lieutenant Fenstermacher was wounded. At Petersburg also Anthony Torry was wounded with loss of leg. The regiment suffered severely. Captain Moorhead was among the slain. Colonel Kiddoo, formerly of Company F, commanded a regiment of colored troops, and won distinction by capturing a fort from the enemy, in front of Petersburg. After this no casualties were sustained by the company, and it was mustered out on the 8th of September, 1864.

During its eventful career, this brave, body of Clarion county's sons won enduring laurels for themselves, and made for us a page of history of which we may well he proud. The company all told numbered one hundred twelve men, of whom forty-two were wounded in battle, five of which died from their wounds. Eleven were killed in battle. Captain McCullough was promoted to major of the regiment April 5, 1864, and he was killed in action at the Wilderness, May 6, 1864. That made eleven of the company who were killed in action, but only ten are shown on roster.

Joseph B. Kiddoo entered the service as a private of Company F. He rose to corporal, then to first sergeant of his company. He was next promoted to lieutenant-colonel of the One Hundred and Thirty-seventh Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers on the 25th of August, 1862. Later he was promoted to colonel of the Twenty-second colored regiment, and finally to brigadier-general in the regular army, which rank he held at the time of his death, about the year 1880. Joseph Lichtenberger was promoted to principal musician and transferred to the One Hundred and Fifth. William McCaskey, after being discharged for sickness, re-enlisted in February, 1864, in the Second Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, and died in service September 30, 1864. Michael Kemp reenlisted in December, 1863, and rose to first sergeant in Company H, One Hundred and Fifth. Andrew McDonald was promoted to sergeant in the One Hundred and Fifth, and he was discharged November 5, 1865. Barney McCann re-enlisted January 19, 1864, in Company A, Seventy-eighth Pennsylvania Volunteers. Andrew E. Russell was detailed into the Signal Corps in 1862. John Vorhauer was detailed at brigade headquarters in 1862. Lieutenant David Shields was assigned as aid to Brigadier-General Hays in 1862, and Lieutenant George W. Fox re-enlisted in Veteran Reserve Corps in 1864.

Since their discharge, the following members of Company F have died. This list may not be complete, but it is given in full as far as known now (January, 1887): Lieutenant Lawrence Egan died in Baltimore in 1862; Joseph Lichtenberger, bugler, died in Licking township, Clarion county, May 18, 1875; First Lieutenant Isaac Fenstermacher died at Clarion December 27, 1877; Sergeant John A. Griffen died at Red Bank Furnace, Clarion county, in April, 1866; Sergeant William L. Hall died in Piney township, Clarion county, about 1864. Privates - John Johnston died at Strattanville, Clarion county, February 14, 1865; Gregory Lawrence died at Jamestown, N.Y., in 1881; Daniel O'Neill died in the West somewhere about 1875; Anthony Torry died at Clarion April 22,1884; Sergeant Andrew McDonald died at North Pine Grove, Clarion county, March 9, 1883. General Joseph B. Kiddoo died in New York City August 20, 1880. The readers of this sketch will recognize many of the survivors of this company among their friends and neighbors.

Only seven of the company were ever captured. One was left in hospital sick and unaccounted for. Two were missing. Only one deserted. Two resigned, both on account of ill health. Only thirteen were mustered out with the company.

Recapitulation. - Original enlistment, 94 men; enlisted recruits, 11 men; drafted recruits, 7 men; total, 112 men. Killed in battle while in company, 10; die 1 of disease, 20; died of wounds, 5; discharged for wounds, 9; discharged for other causes, 27;resigned, 2 ; missing and unaccounted for, 3 ; deserted, 1;promoted out of the company, 3; transferred, 19; mustered out with company, 13 ; total, 112.

Captain Reid, who recruited the company and to whom the writer is indebted for valuable memoranda concerning this company, lives in Clarion town. He is well known throughout Clarion county as one of the most able attorneys at the Clarion bar. Many passages in the foregoing pages are taken verbatim from Captain Reid's notes, as the writer felt that to change them would be to render less acceptable this narrative. This sketch of Company F has been penned with earnest admiration for the talented gentlemen who bore its titles. The deeds of its heroic men, led by heroic officers, together with the memory of its battle-slain and other dead warriors, should inspire the children of these men, and in turn their children's children, to patriotic and earnest lives.

It is believed that the roster of Company F, which follows, is as free from errors as one can be compiled.

COMPANY F, SIXTY-SEVENTH REGIMENT PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS.

67th Regiment




THIS company was recruited in Jefferson, Clarion, and Indiana counties by Samuel C. Arthur, with a recruiting station at Brookville, and Martin Flick, with a recruiting station at Rimersburg. The company was mustered in at Philadelphia December 19, 1861, by Lieutenant-Colonel Ruff. The first fight in which the company engaged was at Winchester, July 15, 1862, when a great many of the company were captured. Company F participated in the battle of Cedar Creek, made famous by "Sheridan's ride." The only reliable data that has been collected is embraced in the roll of this company. It had some exciting experiences, and participated in several brilliant exploits. It was mustered out of service at or near Washington July 14, 1865.

Among the better known of its members, the reader will recognize, the names of Martin Flick, once a justice of the peace at Edenburg; E.W. Haines, candidate for Legislature in 1882, and Levi Switzer, a fifer of some fame in the southern part of the county, who, it will be observed, was promoted to principal musician of the regiment.

General Harry White, ex-congressman of this district, and now president judge of Indiana county, was major of the Sixty-seventh.

COMPANY C, SEVENTY-EIGHTH REGIMENT, P.V.

78th Regiment




THE Seventy-eighth Regiment had the reputation of being one of the best regiments in the war, and Captain Brinker's was one of its best companies. It was recruited in Clarion county by John M. Brinker, afterwards its captain, and mustered into service September 16, 1861. The regiment was in the Army of the Cumberland. It did some hard service, and it is with regret that the writer finds it impossible to give Company C more than a very brief sketch, on account of not being supplied with particular data with regard to the company. After sharing the hardships and triumphs of the regiment in many a well-fought field, the company was mustered out on the 11th of September, 1865.

Some of the best known names on the roll of this company are Captain Brinker, David Mohney, George D. Hamm, C.W. Allebach, and David Goodman.

The company deserves a more extended notice than this, and it is hoped that some time its achievements may be duly chronicled.

COMPANY A, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRD REGIMENT, P.V.

Enlistment - Route to the Field - Services - Roll.

IN August, 1861, Captain R. Laughlin, assisted by A.H. Alexander, W.C. Mobley, and James R. Haun, recruited a company of volunteers at Callensburg, Clarion county, Pa. It went into camp at Camp Orr, Kittanning, Pa., with fifteen men, who were left there, and the recruiting continued till the number reached about one hundred and fifty men, which was reduced by assignment to other companies, so that at the time of muster into the United States service, September 7, 1861, it numbered one hundred and eleven men. It was mustered in by Captain Henry B. Hays, of the United States Army, and designated Company A, of the One Hundred and Third Regiment, P.V. The company then elected R. Laughlin, captain; A.H. Alexander, first lieutenant; George P. Schott, second lieutenant. The enrollment papers had, however, previously designated R. Laughlin, captain.

In February, 1862, the company, with the regiment, left Camp Orr, and proceeded by rail to Harrisburg, where the regiment received clothing, and went at once to Washington, under command of Colonel T.F. Lehman. It went into camp north of the Capitol, but soon left there and moved to Meridian Hill, where it arrived about the first of April, 1862. At this place the One Hundred and Third was placed in General Keim's Provisional Brigade of Casey's Division of Keyes's Corps, and ordered to the Peninsula. The troops went to Fortress Monroe, and into camp near Hampton. After staying in camp a short time the corps moved forward, and the company of which this sketch is written, participated in the siege of Yorktown. When the enemy evacuated Yorktown the One Hundred and Third led Keim's Brigade in its approach to the battle-field at Williamsburg. In the battle of Williamsburg Company A sustained no serious loss. It next took part in the terrible battle of Fair Oaks or Seven Pines. Before entering upon this campaign, however, the number of the company had been somewhat reduced. It was over-full at time of muster, and some of the men were transferred to other organizations, as noted in roll.

In the battle of Fair Oaks the company had two men killed, nine wounded and one prisoner. In this battle Captain R. Laughlin was officer of the day for the regiment. Major Gazzam was in command of the regiment. Lack of space compels us to omit Captain Laughlin's well-written description of the battle.

After the battle of Fair Oaks the company, with the brigade, was posted at White Oak Swamp, where the men built fortifications. Exposed to the heat and to the malaria of the swamp, many were taken sick, and at times it was difficult to get enough well men to relieve the pickets. On the 28th of June the troops began their march, and what was fit for duty of the company arrived at Malvern Hill July 1, 1862, and took part in that battle, supporting a battery on the left. The brigade, now commanded by General Wessels, covered the retreat of the army to Harrison's Landing on the James. On the march the enemy made frequent attacks, but were repelled by Wessels. At Harrison's Landing the company went into camp, but soon went down the Peninsula to Fortress Monroe. It was ordered to Antietam, and embarked on transports for that point, when it was ordered to Norfolk, thence to Suffolk. The company remained at Suffolk till December 5, 1862, when it marched to the Chowan River, and proceeded by transports to Newbern, N.C., where the troops made a raid into the interior as far as Goldsboro, N.C. On this raid they had three hard fights, one at Kingston, N.C., one at White Hall, and one at Goldsboro. The battle of Kingston was fought on the 14th of December, 1862.

In this struggle Captain Laughlin distinguished himself by his bravery. He commanded the left wing of the regiment, and led it with other troops across a swamp to the attack of the enemy after the swamp had been declared impassable. Laughlin plunged into the water to the waist and was followed close by his fearless men. It was a brilliant dash, and his followers attested their approval by patriotic cheers. Here Laughlin earned a promotion, but never received one. The credit was given to Colonel Hunt, who supported Colonel Maxwell, who commanded the right of the One Hundred and Third. Colonel Howell, with the Eighty-fifth Pennsylvania Volunteers, supported Laughlin, and justice to a brave man would have given him a new title; but while the soldiers all knew to whom the credit was due, the service was never recognized.

The company fought at White Hall December 16, and at Goldsboro the 17th. After the battle of Goldsboro the troops returned to Newbern, N.C.

Captain Laughlin sent in his resignation on the 20th of January, 1863.

The following is a copy:

"HEADQUARTERS ONE HUNDRED AND THIRD P.V.,
NEWBERN, N.C., January 20, 1863."To COLONEL SOUTHARD HUFFMAN, A.A. General Eighteenth Army Corps:
"Having served as a line officer in the 103d Penna. Vol. for over eighteen months, and having been exposed to all the vicissitudes of the campaign on the peninsula, and being in my fifty-sixth year, my declining health admonishes me that to attempt to do the duties of a line officer any longer would be injustice to myself, as well as injurious to the service to which I have been so long attached; I therefore, for the above and many other reasons, do hereby tender to you my resignation of the office of captain Co. A, 103d Reg't. Penna.
Vol. R. LAUGHLIN."


It was accepted and Captain Laughlin discharged January 24, 1863.

Lieutenant A.H. Alexander was promoted to captain January 25, 1863. The company was sent to Plymouth, N.C., soon after. This was the Union army's farthest outpost. Company A was assigned to Fort Williams, the main fort in the center of the line of works. It mounted six guns - four thirty-two pounders and two six pounders. While in Fort Williams, Company A and the remainder of the One Hundred and Third re-enlisted as veterans January 1, 1864.

On the afternoon of April 17, 1864, the enemy in force attacked the fort. The garrison fought day and night till about 11 A.M. April 20,when, being overpowered, the troops were compelled to surrender, having used all their ammunition. The rebels numbered 15,000. The garrison had 1,922 men fit for duty. One hundred officers and 2,198 enlisted men were taken prisoners. Our loss in the conflict was about 200 killed and wounded. The enemy acknowledged a loss of 1,800 men. The roll of the company gives the names of the prisoners.

Fort Williams had been mainly constructed by Company A, and at the time of the capture the fort was occupied by it and a company of the Second Massachusetts.

The prisoners, camped outside the works till noon, April 21, when they took up their line of march for Tarboro, N.C., about sixty miles distant, under guard, where they arrived about noon April 25.

The next day they were shipped in box cars for Andersonville, Ga., where they arrived April 30, 1864. The enlisted men were sent into the stockade; the officers were kept in a church over night, and the next morning sent back to Macon, Ga., where they remained till August 11, when 600 of them, including the officers of Company A, were sent to Charleston, S.C., and put under fire of the Union guns, the rebels thinking that would stop the firing upon the city. On the 5th of October these officers were put aboard cars for Columbia, S.C. When about ten miles from Columbia, Captain Bascom, of the Fifth Iowa, and Lieutenant William H. Keister, of Company I, One Hundred and Third Pennsylvania Volunteers, with Captain Alexander, of Company A, jumped from the cars and attempted to escape, but were recaptured.

The surviving members of Company A were released from Andersonville February 28, 1865, and from Florence, S.C., February 24, 1865, but quite a number were discharged soon after, and never rejoined the company. Fifteen of the prisoners belonging to Company A died in prison or on the way out. The company and regiment were mustered out at Newbern, N.C., June 25, 1865, by the general order disbanding the army. The troops proceeded to Harrisburg, where they were paid off and finally discharged July 12, 1865. The company participated in twenty-four engagements.

Captains Laughlin and Alexander corrected this roll and furnished valuable data, for which they have our thanks.

*
Bates has James H. Lobaugh, of Company A, One Hundred and Third P.V., marked "Deserted date unknown." This to the writer seems an unjust record. He received a discharge January 20, 1863. Having been examined three times to go to his regiment and each time sent back to his quarters, Lobaugh was finally examined for a discharge by a Dr. Thompson, who said he ought to be sent home. Lobaugh went, as ordered, to the detail tent on the 20th, and received his discharge from Charles Holden, the confidential clerk of Charles A. McCall, M.D., the surgeon in charge of Mt. Pleasant Hospital. On this discharge he was paid in full some ninety odd dollars, and also received a special rate card for transportation home. In 1884 the adjutant-general wrote Lobaugh that the paper purporting to be his discharge, which he had presented to that office, was a forgery, perpetrated by an employee of Mt. Pleasant Hospital, that it had been stamped and retained in that office. Forgery or not, it is the settled conviction of the writer that it was received by the soldier in good faith, and if a forgery, that he was not a party to it. The case implies bribery and that offense could not have been committed without money. Lobaugh always had been, was then, and is now, a poor man. If he be the victim of a forgery, this record refuses to hold him as a deserter. It accepts the paper in question to be, as far as James H. Lobaugh is concerned, an honorable discharge.



COMPANY B, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRD REGIMENT, P.V.

Enlistment - Route to the Field - Services - Death of Captain Gillespie - Roll.

THIS company was recruited during the months of August and September, in the counties of Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, and Venango. It will be remembered that the Seventy-eighth regiment had been recruited in the same territory principally. The vigorous campaign for enlistment carried on by Captain Hosey, Captain Brinker, and Captain Laughlin, of whom we have written, had gathered in those most eager to enlist, before Captain Gillespie began to recruit his company. In fact Company C and Company E of the Seventy-eighth, had really gathered up the eager ones before any of the companies of the One Hundred and Third were begun - but the recruiting officers of that regiment worked away earnestly and patiently, and when Company B was mustered into the United State's service at Camp Orr on the 24th of September, its ranks were overfull. It shared the vicissitudes of the regiment, being engaged in numerous battles, and suffering much from exposure and disease, and finally gave up the lives of many of its bravest and best men in filthy prison pens.

Captain Gillespie was killed at Fair Oaks. He expressed the belief when entering the fight that he would not come out, but would be killed. The company suffered little in battle after Fair Oaks. At Plymouth, N.C., about fifty men of the company were on duty, and all were captured April 20, 1864. Most of these were confined at Andersonville, and during their imprisonment and immediately after their release, more than twenty of this number died. The company was mustered out of service June 25, 1865, when not more than fifteen were present.

COMPANY F, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRD REGIMENT, P.V.

Enlistment - To the Field - Services - Roll.

CAPTAIN McDOWELL, who recruited this company in the fall and early winter of 1861, from the counties of Allegheny and Clarion, found the same difficulty that the other recruiting officers of the One Hundred and Third did. However, on the 7th of December, 1861, the company was mustered into the United States service with an enrollment of 107 men, many of whom were transferred from Company A. The company's history is almost identical with that of the regiment. At the battle of Fair Oaks Sergeant Henry H. Neely, with about fifteen men, was with Company A, the remainder of the company was on fatigue duty, slashing timber, till Casey's troops were driven back. These then discarded their axes and took to their guns. During the fight no casualties occurred to this company.

At Plymouth, N.C., the company was commanded by Captain John Donaghy. It numbered about fifty men all told, and all were captured. Of these, about twenty-five died in prison, or after release. The information relative to this company is limited, therefore this sketch is necessarily brief.

Second Lieutenant Henry H. Neely of this company is well known throughout Clarion county, having been once elected sheriff. In 1886 he renounced his faith in the Democratic party, with which he had always acted, and united with the Prohibition party, being its candidate for member of the House of Representatives in the Legislature of Pennsylvania.

COMPANY C, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTH REGIMENT P.V.

Recruiting - To the Front - Services - Severe Losses - Distinguished Names - Roll.



CAPTAIN Calvin A. Craig recruited a company at Greenville, Clarion county, Pa., in July and August, 1861. The company enrolled, during its term of service, two hundred and nineteen men, principally of Clarion county. A few of the men were from Clearfield county. Several others were from the vicinity of Oil City.

The regiment was organized at Pittsburgh September 9, 1861, and immediately proceeded to Washington City, and encamped at Kalorama Heights, where the troops were provided with blankets, tents, etc. Here the regiment received its full complement of companies, and, by order of General McClellan, it crossed the Potomac and encamped on the farm of one Hon. George Mason, their camp being named Camp Jameson, in honor of their brigade commander, General Charles D. Jameson. At Camp Jameson the regiment went into winter quarters, being supplied with Sibley tents and sheet iron stoves. Here it was drilled constantly.

On the 18th of December, 1861, the regiment was hastily marched to Pohick Church, expecting to engage the enemy, who had raised his flag over the church. When the Union troops reached the church they found that the enemy had retired across Ocquoquon Creek, and the church was left alone with its memories of the Washingtons, the Lees, and the Fairfaxes, who had erected it, and who had worshiped there. The soldiers who made that march, and those who watched there on picket, will remember that spot with feelings of veneration.

On the 18th of February, 1862, the regiment was ordered out on picket. Prior to this date, on the 5th of January, 1862, the regiment received, by the hand of Colonel J.K. Moorhead, on behalf of the State, a beautiful stand of colors, which was accepted by Colonel McKnight, on behalf of the regiment.

The troops moved on the 17th of March, 1862, and proceeded by steamer to Fortress Monroe. Here the regiment entered upon its first field duty. The regiment lay before Yorktown until it was evacuated. It advanced on the afternoon of May 4, and encamped on the other side of Yorktown. The regiment took part in the battle near Williamsburg.

The One Hundred and Fifth was the first to move on the 6th. Company C and two other companies were deployed as skirmishers to enter Williamsburg. Company C occupied the center of the advance. General Jameson and Colonel McKnight accompanied these three companies. Company C was the first to enter the town, and the regimental flag was hoisted over the courthouse by Sergeant William McNutt. Sergeant Joseph Craig, of Company C, captured a rebel cavalryman, himself, taking man, horse, carbine, and revolver. Other prisoners were taken.

The company was constantly on the move now, and on the 31st of May, when the regiment went into the battle of Fair Oaks, it was on fatigue duty with Company I.

Coming up to the scene of battle as soon as possible, they were formed by order of General Heintzelman on the right of the Fifty-seventh Pennsylvania. In the severe fighting that followed, Company C had four men wounded. The company joined the survivors of the other companies during the night. The regiment won its first laurels at a fearful price at Fair Oaks, having lost two officers and forty-one men killed, one hundred and seventeen wounded, and seventeen missing. It was engaged on the 25th of June, losing two men killed and six wounded. On the 30th of June it was engaged at Charles City Cross Roads, with a loss of fifty-six killed and wounded. That night it retired to Malvern Hill and was hotly engaged there July 1, 1862. The regiment went in with two hundred men, and lost one hundred and three in killed, wounded, and missing. This severe loss was caused by the regiment being under a constant fire of musketry and artillery for four hours, with no protection but a rail fence.

Colonel McKnight resigned July 25, and in the absence of Lieutenant-Colonel Corbet, Captain Craig, of Company C, assumed command of the regiment. From Harrison's Landing the regiment went to Alexandria, arriving there August 22.

On the night of the 28th of August the little force under Captain Craig was attacked by a superior force of confederates under General Gordon, and after a brave struggle Captain Craig and about one-half his men were captured, the others escaped in the darkness. Captain Craig was found in the hospital at Manassas the following Friday. The captured men were returned to our lines the next day, August 29. The One Hundred and Fifth at the Second Bull Run was commanded by Captain Craig, who was wounded in the ankle.

Colonel McKnight returned to the regiment on the 20th of September and was recommissioned Colonel.

On the 13th of December the regiment crossed the river at Fredericksburg and remained under fire forty-two hours, losing two officers and eleven men.

At Chancellorsville, May 3, the regiment played an honorable part. In that terrible battle Colonel McKnight was shot through the head and killed. Colonel Craig then took command. The regiment went into the Chancellorsville fight with twenty-seven officers and three hundred and twenty men. It came out with sixteen officers and two hundred and twenty men. Lieutenant Colonel Craig was commissioned Colonel on the 21st of May. On the 27th of May General Sickles presented the "Kearney Badge of Honor" to those of the regiment who by bravery and good conduct had merited it. The members of Company C who received the "Cross of Honor" were Corporal Andrew A. Harley, and privates Charles C. Weaver, and Samuel H. Mays.

In the battle of Gettysburg the regiment lost one officer and fourteen killed, thirteen officers and one hundred and eleven men wounded, and nine missing, a total of one hundred and sixty-eight out of two hundred and forty-seven who went in. Colonel Craig was here again wounded.

The regiment was engaged at Auburn, at Kelly's Ford, at Locust Grove, at Mine Run, and in the Wilderness campaign, in which Colonel Craig was again seriously wounded and was only saved from death by his devoted men holding the artery so that it could not bleed. At Spottsylvania Sergeant Harley of Company C, color bearer, was wounded and the colors passed to Company F.

On the 16th of August, at Deep Bottom, Colonel Craig was mortally wounded and died on the 17th.

At the battle of Boydton Plank Road Captain Patton, of Company C, was killed while fighting against superior numbers. Lieutenant Joseph B. Brown then took command of Company C and was mustered out with the company July 11, 1865. The company participated in the campaign which terminated at Appomattox.

The regiment of which this company was a part - the One Hundred and Fifth Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteers - is one of which Pennsylvania is justly proud. Space would not permit as full an account of their trials and triumphs as they deserve.

COMPANY L, ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTH REGIMENT, P.V. - ELEVENTH CAVALRY.

Enlistment - To the Field - Services - Captain Loomis's Death - Roll.

COMPANY L was recruited at various points throughout Clarion county in August and September, 1861, by Captain John B. Loomis. A part of the company was mustered into service at Philadelphia, Pa., September 13, 1861, by Captain Starr, of the U.S. Army. On the 16th of September, at the same place, fourteen other members were mustered in by Captain Dye, of the U.S. Army.

Company L went into camp near Hestonville, West Philadelphia. They broke camp October 7, 1861, and started to Washington, where they arrived at 7 o'clock October 9th. They went into camp and remained there till October 14, when they crossed into Virginia, going into camp at Ball's Cross Roads near Fairfax Court House, Va. On the 18th of November they broke camp and recrossed the Long Bridge, passed on through Washington to Annapolis, Md., where they boarded the steamer George Washington, on the 22nd of November, and arrived at Old Point Comfort, Va., on the 25th of November, 1861. They went into camp at Camp Hamilton, Fortress Monroe, Va. The company remained at Camp Hamilton, drilling and scouting on the Peninsula to Yorktown, till May 15, 1862, when it crossed over to Norfolk, Va., on the steamer South America, and occupied Portsmouth, Va.

Before Company L crossed to Norfolk, the vanguard of McClellan's army landed at Fortress Monroe. Company L crossed to Norfolk on the 15th of May, and on the 5th of June it went into camp at Suffolk, Va., twenty-eight miles from Norfolk, with companies A, E, G, and H, which companies had also been stationed at Portsmouth with Company L. It remained at Suffolk till June 22nd, scouting on the Blackwater, and in North Carolina. On the 23d of June, 1863, these troops took transports at Portsmouth, Va., and started for White House, on the Pamunkey River, in Virginia, where they arrived June 25, 1863. Companies B, L, and M had been detached from the regiment, being at South Mills, a little below Suffolk. These three companies at South Mills rejoined the regiment on the 4th of June, 1863. Before embarking for White House the regiment, on the 30th of January, 1863, took a prominent part in the battle of Deserted House or Kelly's store. On the 16th of May, 1863, Company L was attacked at Woodville, N.C., by two hundred guerillas, and Lieutenant Miller Beatty was wounded and left in the rebel lines. Private Amos W. Delp was wounded and died June 10th from the effects of his wounds. Private Thomas McDowell was also wounded.

The regiment reached White House on the 25th of June, and on the 26th it captured General William F.H. Lee and eighty-four men, five hundred mules and horses, also a wagon train and ammunition.

On the 4th of July, 1863 the company was engaged at Hanover Junction, and on the 28th of July it was hotly engaged at Jackson, N.C. The company was with the regiment in the fight at Bottom's Bridge on the Chickahominy, Sunday, February 7, 1864. The company marched from Portsmouth May 5, 1864, and on Sunday, the 8th of May, it skirmished with the enemy for three miles along the Petersburg and Weldon Railroad. At Jarrett's Depot the Eleventh, assisted by the First District of Columbia Cavalry, defeated the enemy, and captured two hundred and fifty-nine prisoners.

On Monday, the 23d of May, 1864, the company went to the front with General Butler, between the James and Appomattox Rivers. On Thursday, the 6th of May, 1864, the company was dismounted and placed in the fortifications in Butler's front. It skirmished with the enemy daily till June 8, 1864. On the 9th of June the company participated in the action in which the rebel pickets were driven in, and the Eleventh was in the streets of Petersburg. Company L, with its regiment, joined Wilson's Cavalry Division June 21st on a raid down the Petersburg and Weldon Railroad, and struck the Petersburg and Lynchburg Railroad at Reams's Station. On the 25th they fought the enemy for three hours at Roanoke River. On the 28th they crossed the Notaway River, met the enemy at Stony Creek, and fought nearly all night.

On the 29th of June, 1864 Company L passed through its most terrible ordeal of the war. The Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry was in advance when the charge was made upon the rebels. The battle lasted from early in the morning till two o'clock in the afternoon. In the charge made by the Eleventh many gallant officers and brave men fell. The regiment lost one hundred and thirty in killed, wounded, and missing. Company L had Captain John B. Loomis, Sergeants Amos Weaver, and Henry O. Gilger, and Privates John Randolph, and Jesse Evans killed in the charge. Sergeants Aaron Fulmer and David Zillafro were wounded, and forty of the company were missing. The regiment had to bear the brunt of the fight, and it also covered the retreat of General Wilson's cavalry.

On the 11th of July Company L was ordered to the eastern shore of Virginia. It relieved Company G of provost duty. It remained on duty on the eastern shore at Accomac Court House until discharged by reason of expiration of term of service, at Fortress Monroe, Va., September 28, 1864. The veterans of the regiment and the recruits served till the close of July, 1865. The remnant of Company L shared the vicissitudes of the regiment during the closing scenes of the war. The Eleventh Regiment had the honor of opening the battle which terminated with Lee's surrender. Major John S. Nimmon, of Lancaster county, and Samuel R. Strattan, of Clarion county, led the first squadron of cavalry, which were the first troops in sight at Appomattox Court House on the day of the surrender of the Confederate army under General R.E. Lee, April 9, 1865. And it is worthy of note, that at Appomattox, a Clarion county boy, Lieutenant James H. Clover, in charge of the commissary department was the first man on the field with his wagons, and distributed twenty-five thousand rations to the hungry and defeated Confederates. "Jim," as he was familiarly called by his comrades, received great praise for this act.

The regiment, the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry, attained considerable distinction during the war, main1y through the reckless dash and dare-devil charges so frequently made by it, under the leadership of the inimitable Colonel Sam Spear, known familiarly amongst the boys as "Old Spud." When Spear was struck by a rebel bullet at the battle of White Oak Road he held on to the pommel of the saddle and shouted: "Go on, boys; go on just the same as if old Sam were with you." And it is but just to say here that Colonel Spear was a gallant soldier, well trained, having spent twenty-three years in the regular service before the war, and had he been able to remain in the service he would, no doubt, have ranked high as a cavalry officer. Company L probably had fewer men on the sick list than any other company of the same number of men in the service. It was the company's boast - a pardonable one it is believed that there was not a coward in the company.

Captain Loomis's memory is revered by having the G.A.R. Post at Clarion named for him.

The dates herein differ somewhat from those on the Company Memorial in possession of various members of the company. In view of this fact it is well to note my reasons for the dates given. In reply to an inquiry, William C. Pritner, a well-informed and careful member of the company, says that when the memorial was prepared, "the motto, 'Our country, may she ever be right, but right or wrong, our country,' and the date of enlistment and muster and place of muster was given by Captain Loomis, in which he says: And mustered into service at Clarion, Pa., September 12, 1861,' while I positively know that the company was mustered into service at Philadelphia, Pa., by Captains Starr and Dye, U.S. Army. My records say September 13, 1861, as to part, and my discharge says: "Enrolled September 16, 1861, and discharged at Fortress Monroe, Va., September 28, 1864,' as do also the discharges of Darr, Craig, Bole, Ritz, Hosey, etc., in all fourteen men in that squad, as I made out the discharges myself while the company was on duty, stationed at Accomac Court House, Va., (Eastern Shore.) I may be wrong as to the 13th of September, 1861, being the date of muster of some of part of the company, but as to the men enrolled on the 16th of September, 1861, I am positive; I have yet passes, from the provost at Fortress Monroe, which say: 'Guards, pass Pritner and thirteen men to Fort and Return.'" So for this reason the dates given in the following roll are adopted. Bates says, "Discharged September 13, 1864," and "Discharged September 25, 1864." Mr. Pritner has given conclusive data that the men mustered in September 13, 1861, were discharged September 18, 1864, and those mustered September 16, 1861, were discharged September 28, 1864.

The thanks of the writer is due to Milton Strattan, of Strattanville, for books and papers, and to Hon. John T. Strattan, of Washington, D.C., for valuable information concerning the company. He is also under many obligations to William C. Pritner, esq., of Curllsville, for the very careful correction of the roll of the company and for a sketch of the same. Some dates in the accompanying roll may still be wrong, but it is believed that most of them are correct.

In connection with our sketch of the company we give the following account of Captain Loomis's death, by Adjutant Samuel R. Strattan, of the Eleventh Cavalry. His letter is also here given:
"No. 131 Third street, N.E.,
"WASHINGTON, D.C.,
"February 7th, 1887.

"W.A. BEER, ESQ. - My Dear Sir: While in Harrisburg last week Mr. A.J. Davis requested me to write out a brief sketch of the details connected with the death of Captain J.B. Loomis. The sketch aforesaid, hastily written, is forwarded you herewith, in order that it may reach Mr. Davis safely. Trusting you are getting along well with your history. I am, Sir,
"Yours sincerely,
Samuel. R. STRATTAN."


DEATH OF CAPTAIN LOOMIS - BY S.R. STRATTAN.

"Among the many brave and gallant soldiers from Clarion county who lost their lives in the War of the Rebellion, there is no name, perhaps, deserving of more conspicious mention than that of John B. Loomis, captain of Company L, Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry Vols. The details connected with his death being somewhat of a tragic nature, and having been an eye-witness, I give them herewith as briefly as possible.

"From the 21st to the 30th of June, 1864, the regiment was engaged in the celebrated raid of Kautz's and Wilson's divisions, having for its object the destruction of the Danville Railroad, Va. This object had been successfully accomplished. On the return march, however, a strong force of the enemy's infantry and cavalry was encountered at Stony Creek, Va., on the night of the 28th, and at Reams's Station, Va., on the 29th. Heavy engagements took place in which both divisions suffered severely. Prior to the opening of the engagement on the 29th, I noticed that Captain Loomis had lost his hat and was wearing a white handkerchief around his head. I remarked to him that I was a little superstitious, and looked upon this head covering as a bad omen, aside from its affording a very conspicious target. He replied in his quiet way, 'Oh, I guess there is not much significance in your theory.' Yet in one short hour after that I saw him borne to the rear in the arms of the stalwart Second Lieutenant Shannon McFadden, of Richardsville, Pa., his body being pierced with several bullets, and quite dead. All being in confusion at that moment, and the retreat to Stony Creek Bridge already begun, I have often wondered how McFadden, in the short time allowed him, could possibly dig even a shallow grave, and deposit the remains of the captain, and then get away. Yet by a superhuman effort he did it, and made his escape, while hundreds of the command were being captured around him.

"In the fall of 1865, shortly after our return home, Mrs. Loomis asked me concerning what I knew of the details connected with the death of the captain. I informed her of the circumstances above related, and she, in company with Lieutenant McFadden, repaired to the battle-field, exhumed the remains, which were found in such a state of preservation as to be easily recognized, brought them to Clarion, where after appropriate funeral ceremonies at the Loomis House, they were escorted to the cemetery by Guth's Brass Band, to the sound of mournful dirges, and followed by a large concourse of citizens and comrades, and finally, deposited in their last resting place, with Masonic and military honors."

COMPANY K, ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-EIGHTH REGIMENT, P.V.

Enlistment -To the Field - Services - Roll.

IN August, 1862, Thompson Core recruited a company at Curllsville. August 26was the day appointed to start for the army, and on that day forty-two men left Curllsville in wagons for Kittanning, which place they reached at six o'clock, P.M. On the 27th the company went on the cars, A.V.R.R., to Pittsburgh, reaching that city about noon. August 29 the men were mustered into the United States service. Captain Core, A.C. Coursin, and J.Z. Brown then returned to Clarion county to recruit; the company having been given quarters at Camp Howe. On the 4th of September the men were uniformed, and taking the train that evening, they reached Harrisburg next morning, September 5, about five o'clock, and proceeded at once to Camp Curtin. On the 7th of September Captain Core, J.Z. Brown, and A.C. Coursin arrived at Camp Curtin with sixteen men for the company, and by reason of Lieutenant Ferguson not having a receipt to show that the other men had been sworn in at Pittsburgh, they were all re-sworn at the time the new men were mustered. On the 9th the company was armed with Vincennes rifled muskets, and assigned to the One Hundred and Forty-eighth Regiment, as Company K. That evening the regiment, under command of Colonel James A. Beaver, started to the field. Captain Core started back to Clarion county to recruit. He returned to the regiment on the 27th of September with twenty-two recruits for Company K, nineteen of whom were from Montgomery county, the captain having recruited them at Harrisburg with the condition that Henry H. Dotts, one of their number, should be second lieutenant of the company. At this time the regiment's headquarters were at Cockeysville, and Company K was at Glencove, five miles above, all in Maryland. On the 17th of October the company received the advance bounty, twenty-five dollars to each man and two dollars premium. They were paid in bonds. On the 18th the bonds were sent to Baltimore and cashed by the Maryland bank. Rev. Elder, of Clarion, preached to the boys in Camp Beaver on the 3d of November, 1862. November 14 Assistant Secretary of State, Mr. Thomas, presented a flag to the regiment.

On the 9th of December the regiment broke camp and went to Baltimore, thence to Washington, thence to a point opposite Alexandria, ten miles from Washington. After marching, and camping, and enduring wet and cold, the troops reached the army headquarters near Fredericksburg, and were placed in the First Brigade, First Division of Second Corps, and went into winter quarters. The horse racing and other amusements of St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1863, was brought to a sudden close by the rebels opening up a sharp cannonade on our right. The company broke camp, with the regiment, on the 28th of April, and marched to Chancellorsville, where it took part in that terrific struggle.

After this Company K attested its valor on many a well-fought field. The casualties to the company are carefully noted in the roll, having been corrected by Corporal Dennis Conner, to whom the writer is indebted for valuable data. Lieutenant J.Z. Brown was promoted captain July 7, 1864, and on the 27th of October, 1864 Captain Brown with a detachment of one hundred men from the regiment, performed one of the bravest and most successful exploits of the war. They were ordered by General Miles to assault a position of the enemy's line in front. Bates says: "Having formed his men for the desperate work, just at dusk he dashed forward, thrust aside the dense abattis, drove in the pickets, and scaled the ramparts, carrying a strong work, capturing four commissioned officers and more men than he had led to the encounter. The enemy rallying and turning his artillery upon it from the other forts, finally compelled him to retire, occasioning him considerable loss. For his gallant conduct Cap-Brown was highly commended, and breveted major." The company was mustered out June 1, 1865.

COMPANY H, ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINTH REGIMENT P.V.

Enrollment - Route to the Field - Services - Roll.

SOME time in July, 1862, Dr. Charles B. Strattan, of Strattanville, received a letter from Colonel Roy Stone, of Warren, Pa., asking him to enlist a company for his Bucktail Brigade, then being formed at Camp Curtin. Dr. Strattan consented, and soon received the proper authority. He secured the services of James E. Johnston and William S. Hamler, of Strattanville, and began recruiting, making Strattanville headquarters. When fifty-four men had been enlisted the company was unexpectedly called to Harrisburg, without the requisite number of men. They proceeded in wagons to Kittanning and on the cars to Pittsburgh. From there they went to Harrisburg, and were there consolidated with thirty-four men from Lewistown, Mifflin county, under George W. Soult, and designated Company H of the One Hundred and Forty-ninth Regiment, with Dr. Strattan as captain, and George W. Soult as first lieutenant, being mustered into the United States service August 30, 1862.

The regiment was at once forwarded to the field via Washington, where it remained till after the battles of South Mountain and Antietam. Company H was detached and sent to Georgetown, D.C., and put on guard at Union Hotel Hospital, and also at Catholic College Hospital, where it served all winter. When the company was at Georgetown it was commanded by Lieutenant Soult, Captain Strattan being on detached duty. On a trip to Harper's Ferry with some prisoners, Captain Strattan contracted a severe cold, which terminated in a violent typhoid fever. He recovered, but being in an emaciated condition, he resigned and was discharged December 18, 1862, and Lieutenant Soult was promoted to captain January 1, 1863.

The company boarded a steamer and started for the front on the 15th of February, and landed at the mouth of Potomac Creek on the Potomac River. From there the troops marched to Belle Plain. The day they arrived there it snowed six inches. The soldiers had no tents or covering of any kind. They suffered severely, but not a murmur was heard from Company H. At the second battle of Fredericksburg, April 28th, the regiment moved to a position near Pollock's Mills and halted. Next morning it moved down to the banks of the Rappahannock, and was subjected to a rapid fire of shot and shell from the batteries of the enemy on the opposite side of the river. This was the company's first interview with the enemy. To steady the nerves and give courage to the men, each one was given a small quantity of whisky mixed with gun powder. Some relished it and others cast the drug away. This was the opening of the Chancellorsville campaign, through which the company passed without loss, and then came the Gettysburg campaign, in which the company fought three days on the extreme right of the Union line. Captain Soult led the company in and fought valiantly until disabled by a bullet from the enemy, July 1; but his gallant soldiers fought on, and during the struggle captured two field pieces and took them off the field. The company were almost annihilated, only nine men being fit for duty after the third day's fight, James E. Johnston, second lieutenant, and John D. Smith being two of the nine.

By the time the army entered upon the Wilderness campaign Company. He again presented a respectable force. It lost heavily in the Wilderness. It took part in the battles of Spottsylvania, North Anna, Weldon Railroad, also Hatcher's Run and Petersburg. On the 18th of February, 1865, the One Hundred and Forty-ninth was detached from the Army of the Potomac, and ordered north on duty. It proceeded to Elmira, N.Y., where Company H did guard duty over, Confederate prisoners. It filled out its term there, and was mustered out of service June 24, 1865.

The writer is under obligations to Captain Stratton, John D. Smith, and J.C. Young, for information concerning this company.

COMPANY G-, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-FIFTH REGIMENT P.V.

Enlistment - To the Field - Services - Roll.

IN July, 1862, Dr. Klotz recruited a company known as the "West Clarion Guards." The men were enlisted in Richland, Salem and Washington townships. The company met at Blair's Corners August 14, and proceeded by wagons to Kittanning via Callensburg and Rimersburg, reaching Kittanning that night. They immediately got aboard the cars and proceeded that night to Pittsburgh, where for a while the men were quartered in Lafayette Hall. The company went into camp at Camp Copeland, and was mustered into the United States service August 28, 1862. In September the company proceeded by rail to Harrisburg and was placed in the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth Regiment and designated Company G. At Harrisburg it was armed and clothed, and then it was hurried forward to Washington and placed in the defenses across the Potomac, being assigned to the Second Brigade, Third Division of the Fifth Corps. The regiment advanced to Antietam, but was not engaged. The first duty of Company G was on the 18th of September, 1862. After the battle of Antietam Company G and Company C were detached from the regiment and, with the One Hundred and Eighteenth Pennsylvania, ordered to cross the Potomac and take possession of the opposite heights. The company advanced to the river bank and unslung their knapsacks and haversacks, preparatory to fording the stream. When this was done Captain Klotz volunteered to stay and guard the impendimenta till the boys crossed the stream and attended to the work on the other side. Under command of Lieutenants Meeker and Kribbs the boys plunged into the water up to their waists, crossed over, engaged the enemy and were beaten back, recrossing the stream without loss.

The company took part in the battle of Fredericksburg. In the spring of 1863 the regiment was assigned to the Second Brigade, Second Division of the Fifth Corps. The regiment did desperate fighting at Gettysburg on the 2nd of July. It fought its way to the very crest of Little Round Top, which position it held against the most furious assaults of the enemy, and viewed unmolested from its rocky fortress the magnificent struggle on the following day. Meantime Captain Klotz had been discharged, January 10, 1863, and. the company was commanded by Capt. George F. Morgan. From this time on the fortunes of the regiment were shared by Company G. The accompanying roll has been carefully corrected by Sergeant W.F. Collner, who at various times commanded the company, and who had the honor of being in command at Appomattox. The company was mustered out June 2, 1865. It should be observed that the following names on the roll were carried on to the rolls of Company G from the rolls of the Sixty-second Pennsylvania, but that they never joined the company, viz.: Thomas Hamilton, William Vandiver, William Wenner, James White, Philip Baumgard, Charles Blume, John Burns, John Eshel man, William H. Fortune, Squire H. Hayden, William Hall, John W. Jones, George Mingflower, Charles Osburne, John Reily, and Solomon Smith. Some of these are marked "deserted," when, no doubt, they should not be, as their presence elsewhere may have been as carelessly noted as it was in this company - they never having been with the company at all.

COMPANY H, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-FIFTH REGIMENT P.V.

Enrollment - Services - Casualties - Roll.

No company in the whole number of Clarion county companies deserves a higher place in the estimation of the reader than Company H, of the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth. It was recruited at Rimersburg, by Professor John Ewing, in August, 1862, and was mustered into the United States service August 22, 1862, being designated as shown by title, and assigned to the Second Brigade, Third Division of the Fifth Corps. It proceeded to the field by way of Kittanning, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg to Washington. The Regiment went into the field at once, lying in reserve at Antietam. At Gettysburg it did magnificent service as noted under "Company G."

At Petersburg the regiment lay in reserve on the 16th and 17th. On the 18th the Fifth Corps relieved the Ninth Corps in the morning and moved upon the enemy, capturing a cut in the railroad, the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth occupying a position about the center of the corps. At five P.M. a charge was ordered, and the troops moved forward under the most fearful and destructive fire that ever greeted brave men on a mission of death. In this terrible ordeal Company H lost twenty-two men in killed and wounded. Milton Stewart and William Travis were slain upon the field, and seven afterward died, among whom were John Cowan, Frank Lyon, Will Homer, and William J. Marks. Travis was the first man killed of the company. Milton Stewart was carried off the field and buried by A.J. White, Philip Over, and Abner Harkless. On the 22nd of June General Birney commanded the Second Corps, as General Hancock's Gettysburg wound had re-opened. General Birney advanced for an extension of his line, and left an open space between his corps and the Sixth corps which lay on his right. The enemy, perceiving his opportunity, advanced between the two corps and attacked each in the rear. The Fifth Corps had been held in reserve; it was now ordered to charge the enemy. It drove him back across the Jerusalem Plank Road and reinstated the Union line. Here Colonel Ewing, late captain of Company H, was severely wounded in the foot, and Andrew J. White lost his left leg. Each was struck by a Minnie ball. In this campaign George Kerns, William Marks and John Cowan each lost a leg on the 18th, and A.J. White on the 22nd; Lewis Gathers, also of Company H, lost a leg February 6, 1865, and J.D. Burns lost an arm, date unknown to the writer.

Captain Ewing of Company H rose rapidly on his own merit, being promoted to major, to lieutenant-colonel and breveted colonel. Lieutenant D.E. Lyon, born of wealthy parents, entered as lieutenant and became captain, acquitting himself with honor, and upon his discharge for sickness, Wilson E. Allen became captain.

The company had more than an ordinary share of brave men. At Fredericksburg, when Company C - the color company - was beaten back, it left the colors on the field. Captain D.E. Lyon seeing this, rallied Company H, and Corporal Chalmers Lawson rushed forward, seized the colors and bore them from the field. The company was mustered out June 2, 1865. Moses D. Anderson, C.W. Fulton, and A.J. White have our thanks for valuable data.

COMPANY K, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-NINTH REGIMENT P. V. - FOURTEENTH CAVALRY.

First Enlistment Recruits - Other Recruits - In the Field - Record of the Men.

THE following named Clarion county men enlisted in September, 1862, at New Bethlehem, Pa., in Captain David K. Duff's cavalry company, viz: John W. McNutt, recruiting officer; Robert Simes, Joseph Case, James J. Frazier, Peter Angle, Simon P. Cravenor, Noah H. Brown, James M. Goheen, and Solomon C. Rhodes.

The following recruits from Clarion county joined the company at Martinsburg, Va., in 1864: William M. McNutt, Chalkley C. Brocius, Jesse S. McElhoes, John F. Gruber, Amos P. Brocius, Lewis R. Coursin, Michael Crawford, Milton Hepler, Philip Hamm, Elias S. Lavan, Abraham Moore, Robert McNutt, and Tate M. Henry. Philip Farringer, Jacob S. Miller, and Richard Miller joined the company at Camp Montgomery, near Pittsburgh, in November, I 862, and were mustered into the service with the company, but these three soon joined the Second United States Cavalry, and are noted in the miscellaneous list.

These men, twenty-two in all, with their regiment, left Pittsburgh November 24, 1862, and went to Hagerstown, Md., thence to Harper's Ferry on the 28th of December, 1862, where they went into active service, doing picket duty and scouting in that part of Virginia. They were almost constantly employed from the time of the regiment's entering Virginia to the close of the war. Early in May, 1863, they were sent to Grafton, West Va., on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, where their regiment was attached to the mounted command of General W.W. Averell, known as Averell's Brigade of Cavalry, which belonged to the Army of West Virginia. Their field of operations was in West Virginia and the Shenandoah valley.

COMPANY B, ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-NINTH REGIMENT.

Enlistment - Remarkable Number of Desertions - Roll.

CONCERNING this company we know little. It was recruited in Clarion county; was mustered in October 16, 1862, at Camp Howe, near Pittsburgh, and mustered out July 26 (or 27), 1863, at Harrisburg, having been in the field from December 5, 1862, to the time stated. Its service was brief and comparatively light, suffering somewhat, however, from disease.

It is with feelings of regret that we append the roll of this company, copied from Bates's "Pennsylvania Volunteers," page 1152, of vol. IV, as it charges the company with the almost incredible number of thirty-one desertions, all of which are dated prior to the regiment's start to the field. In justice to these men, the opinion is ventured that something was wrong in the conduct of the regiment. The thirty-one men said to have deserted from the company must have been subject to conditions different from the other Clarion county companies, whose rank and file in the aggregate represented both constancy and devotion. Company B, of the One Hundred and Sixty-ninth, must have been somewhat sinned against; otherwise, why this sinning?
