Civil War History of Delaware County PA



Extracted from the book HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA by Henry Graham Ashmead: Phildelphia; L.H. Everts & Co.; 1884

The war of sections, which had overhung the country for over forty years, burst upon the nation on Saturday, April 18, 1861, when the American flag was hauled down at Fort Sumter, under the assaults of Southern military men who, on the plains of Mexico, had proudly marched to victory under its folds. Then the pent-up anger of the North broke all restraint, and a great people rose resistless in their might. It was amazing with what rapidity the news sped from farmhouse to farm-house that Fort Sumter would be evacuated by Maj. Anderson on the morrow. In Chester, Media, Darby, Rockdale, Kellyville, in all the towns, villages, and cross-road hamlets in Delaware County, the people, abandoning their usual avocations, gathered in excited groups to discuss the engrossing intelligence, knowing not in what direction to give expression to their enthusiasm, save in demonstrations of patriotism. Over the court-house at Media, at the town hall in Chester, and the public buildings throughout the county, over mills, workshops, stores, and private dwellings, before nightfall the stars and stripes floated to the winds, or where that was not done, the angry muttering of the populace soon compelled compliance with the popular will, and tri-colored badges were displayed on the breasts of almost every man, woman, and child, for the people were stirred as no living man then could recall the like in all our national history. Sunday followed, and the anxiety to learn the latest news from the seat of war was intense, and in the absence of intelligence the suspense became oppressive. On Monday morning, April 15, 1861, direction was given to the public excitement when President Lincoln issued his proclamation calling for seventy-five thousand troops to be enlisted for a period of three months, unless sooner discharged.

In Media, on that Monday morning, the people crowded the court-house, called thither by time ringing of the bell, when patriotic speeches were delivered, and finally it was determined to form a rifle-corps immediately. After arrangements were made to obtain recruits, the meeting adjourned until Wednesday evening following, the 17th. At Chester, on that same Monday evening, the old town hall, with its memories of the stirring days of '76, once more rang with patriotic calls to the people to arm in defense of liberty and human rights. Nobly throughout the county was the response made, and the sound of the fife and drum was heard on all sides.

On Wednesday night, at Media, the adjourned meeting reassembled in the court-house. Edward Darlington was called to the chair, and Charles D. Manley, Charles R. Williamson, James R. Cummins, John R. Roland, Robert Playford, and J. Crosby Fairlamb acted as vice-presidents, and O.F. Bullard and Thomas V. Cooper as secretaries. Speeches were made by John M. Broomall, Joseph Addison Thomson, and Hugh Jones Brooke. Among the thousand baseless rumors flashing along the wires that day was one which stated that Jefferson Davis, with ten thousand troops, was marching directly on Washington, determined on its immediate capture. The intelligence, false as it was, served to rouse the patriotic indignation of the people, so that name followed name rapidly on the roll of those willing to be led at once against the enemy, and the ranks of the "Delaware County Union Rifles" were filled, while many men were anxious to be recruited even after the list had been closed. So rapidly was the company organization effected that on Friday morning, April 19th, the men were assembled in front of the court-house, where, after a prayer by Rev. Mr. Gracey, they marched to the car, and were forwarded to Philadelphia. There, at the Western Market-House, a collation was served, and the company addressed by Charles D. Manley and H. Jones Brooke. The same afternoon they reached Harrisburg, where they encamped in the capitol grounds, and the next day, April 20th, were mustered into the service for three months.

Weaver, James Walters, James Wasson, James Worrell, John Williams, Lee L. Yarnall.

The Fourth Regiment, commanded by Col. John F. Hartranft, was the following day, April 21st, ordered to Philadelphia, where, under command of Col. Dare, of the Twenty-third Regiment, acting brigadier, it was dispatched to Perryville, Md. There it encamped that night, and the next day was ordered to embark on steamers for Annapolis, and thence moved to Washington, the riots in Baltimore having interrupted direct communication with the national capital. The regiment had been so hastily sent forward that it was not then uniformed, although the soldiers were armed with muskets and carried ammunition in their pockets. The Fourth remained at Annapolis until the 8th of May, when it was forwarded to Washington and quartered in the Assembly Buildings. Sickness prevailing among the men, it was encamped about two miles from the city in the direction of Bladensburg. On June 24th it was ordered to Alexandria, where on Sunday, June 30th, its pickets for the first time were engaged with a small party of the enemy. The Fourth, in the organization of the army of McDowell, formed part of the First Brigade, Third Division. Its hour of enlistment expired on Sunday, July 31, 1861, the day of Bull Run, when McDowell desired the regiment to remain until after the battle had been fought. There being a difference of opinion among the men, it was finally marched to Washington, and thence by rail to Harrisburg, where it was mustered out of service. McDowell, in his report after his crushing defeat, attempted to relieve himself from a part of the blame of that day's disaster by a slurring censure of the Fourth Pennsylvania, but the records of the War Department show that in the great majority of instances the men who composed that organization at Bull Run on subsequently bloody battle-fields manifested their valor and patriotism. The Delaware County Union Rifles, however, had been discharged from the service the day before the battle, and any reflection Gen. McDowell indulged in respecting the Fourth Regiment as a whole has no application to the Media company.



Union Blues - 9th Regiment

Ninth Regiment   In Chester, at the conclusion of the meeting of citizens held on Monday evening, April 15, 1861, steps were immediately taken for the enrollment of a company. On Wednesday more than a sufficient number had been enlisted, and at the meeting of the company it was decided that the organization should be known as the "Union Blues." Au election of officers was held, and Henry B. Edwards was chosen captain. Rev. Mr. Talbot, then rector of St. Paul's parish, presented a sword he had worn when chaplain in the United States navy, to Capt. Edwards. The Union Blues at once began drilling and equipping to respond at a moment's notice when ordered.

On Saturday morning, April 20, 1861, the Union Blues were directed to proceed at once to Harrisburg, and at six o'clock that evening the company mustered in front of the Washington House, in Chester, where they were addressed by Frederick J. Hinkson, who stated that the citizens of the borough pledged themselves that the wives and families of the soldiers depending on them for support should be protected and maintained during the absence of the men at the front. Addresses were also made by Rev. Mr. Talbot, rector of St. Paul's, and Mr. Sproull, of the Presbyterian Church. Rev. Father Haviland, of St. Michael's parish, personally contributed and solicited subscriptions to a fund to he used in equipping the men who had volunteered, and for the maintenance of the families of those who had gone in the service. As evening came the streets were crowded, and no one old enough to remember those early days of the war can forget the departure of the first troops who responded to the call of President Lincoln, or the ovation then extended throughout the North to the "boys in blue," before constant repetition in the years of battle which followed had imparted a sameness to the movements of soldiers. The crowd of people which gathered at the railway station, including cultured and refined women, was the largest the ancient borough had ever known until that time in all its history. And when the engine with the special train rolled from the station, the impression that war had indeed come upon the nation caused the populace to disperse in silence to their homes. The "Union Blues" reached Camp Curtin, at Harrisburg, the following day, and on Monday, April 22nd, were mustered into the Ninth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, for a period of three months. On May 4th the regiment was moved to West Chester, where it arrived at nine o'clock at night during a severe storm of sleet and snow, and as no arrangement had been made for their reception, they were quartered in the rooms attached to the old depot. The next day Col. Longnecker selected a location for cantonment, which was named Camp Wayne in honor of "Mad Anthony," of the Revolution. On May 26, 1861, the Ninth Regiment was ordered to Wilmington, Del., to prevent disloyal citizens in that State from forming military organizations for the Confederate service, and went into camp at Hare's Corner, between Wilmington and New Castle. The regiment, on June 6th, was ordered to Chambersburg to join Gen. Patterson's command, and was attached to the First Brigade, First Division, under Col. Miles. On Sunday, June 16th, Miles' Brigade crossed the Potomac, the Ninth having the right of the column, the troops wading the stream, the water reaching breast-high. Subsequently they were ordered to recross the river and take a position to cover the ford. On July 1st the brigade again passed over in time direction of Martinsburg, and on the 8th a forward movement of the whole army was ordered by Gen. Patterson in the direction of Wincthester and Bunker Hill, but a council of war being held, it was decided to countermand the order. On the 17th of July, Longnecker's brigade marched towards Charlestown, where it encamped, remaining here until the 21st, when it marched to Harper's Ferry. On the 22nd the Ninth Regiment was marched to Hagerstown, and thence forwarded to Harrisburg, when it was mustered out of service, the period of the enlistment having expired.

The following is the roll of Company I, Ninth Regiment, three months' Pennsylvania Volunteers:

Captain, Henry B. Edwards; first lieutenant, James G. Stacey; second lieutenant, William Blakeley; sergeants, William B. Stevenson, John Beck, James Williams, William Eves; corporals, Isaac Weaver, William B. Thatcher, Charles Storey, Jesse Cummings; musicians, Ezra Dransfield, Alexander King.

Privates. - John Booth, Joseph Barker, Joseph Brewster, Lewis Benner, John C. Barrowclough, Thomas Blythe, Isaac F. Badden, William H. Brown, David Burke, George Booth, Thomas W. Bruner, Edward Crowther, Edward Collison, Samuel Cross, Daniel Crowther, James Cliff, Allen Carr, Frederick Cutler, Frederick Crider, Simeon Davis, John Doyle, William Elliott, Theodore Ettienne, Robert Fogg, John Farraday, Joseph Grooves, William P. Huff, James Hewes, George Helms, William F. Jester, James P.

Shellinger, John Smith, Samuel Smith, Thomas Toy, Joseph Taylor, Jr., Richard Turner, George W. Wilson, Joshua L. Wilson, John Wagner, Robert Wright, Alfred Woodhead, George Weigan, Reed L. Weaver.

The two companies having gone to the front the citizens of the county did not relax their efforts, but in all directions home guards were formed and drilled in the manual of arms, such organizations being effected at Chester, Media, Rockdale, Darby, Linwood, Kellyville, Wildeville, Glen Mills, Village Green, Upland, and other localities. So rapidly did the organizations form that on July 4th, at Chester, a parade was made by the Wayne Guards, Capt. W.C. Gray; Home Guards, Capt. H.B. Taylor; Company A, Capt. George E. Darlington; Upland Guards, Capt. George K. Crozer, while on the same day, at the county-seat, the Village Green Guards, Capt. Barton; Glen Mills Guards, Capt. Willcox; Manchester Rifles, Capt. Ballentine; Upper Darby Home Guards, Capt. Buckley, joined with the Media Home Guards in a parade.

On Tuesday afternoon, April 23, 1861, an immense meeting of the people of the county was held in the court-house at Media. H. Jones Brooke was made president, and stirring addresses were delivered. Contributions amounting to two thousand five hundred dollars were made that day, and the county was divided into seven districts for the purpose of soliciting funds to equip troops and support the families of volunteers. Chester, Ridley, and Tinicum constituted the first district; the second comprised Media, Nether and Upper Providence, and all of Middletown east of Edgmont road; the third Marcus Hook, Linwood, Lower and Upper Chester, Bethel, and all of Aston south of Concord road; the fourth Concord, Birmingham, and Thornbury; the fifth Aston, east of Concord road, Middletown, west of Edgmont road, and Edgmont; the sixth Springfield, Darby, and Upper Darby; and the seventh Haverford, Marple, Newtown, and Radnor. The meeting, as taxpayers, called on the county commissioners at once to appropriate five thousand dollars, and twenty thousand dollars thereafter, to be used for the support of the families of those men who should join the army. The activity did not cease here, for the subordinate committees in the several districts in two days after their appointment collected two thousand seven hundred dollars for the relief fund, and in addition Samuel M. Felton, president of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad Company, sent a cheek for one thousand dollars to John P. Crozer, as the contribution of the company. Mr. Felton also notified the clerks in the employment of the road that those who should go to the front would receive their salaries while absent, and on their return from the war would be taken back into the railroad company's service. The women were as active as the men, and busy fingers found constant employment during all the four succeeding years of war in fabricating articles of clothing to minister to the comfort and healthfulness of the soldiers in time field.

After the defeat at Bull Run had convinced the North that the revolting States were terribly in earnest, that they were brave men, ably commanded, and that a war which would dwarf all former wars in the world's history had begun, the popular excitement of the first three months of open hostilities settled into dogged determination that, cost what it might, the national authority should be maintained in every part of the land. During the latter part of July, and in August, 1861, recruiting for new military organizations was brisk in the county. Hereafter the local history of the time, so far as it relates to the several companies and regiments, will be presented in a connected account of such organizations.



26th Regiment (Three-Years' Service).

26th Regiment

Although the history of this regiment antedates the actual outbreak of hostilities, and, as will be recalled, under Col. Small, it was attacked in Baltimore on April 19, 1861, when on its way to Washington to be equipped and armed, it is nowise distinctly connected with the annals of Delaware County until nearly a month subsequent to that event. Under the call of the United States, May 3, 1861, for troops to serve a period of three years, William L. Grubb began recruiting a company in Chester and the surrounding neighborhood. This company was mustered in on May 31, 1861, as Company K, Twenty-sixth Regiment, and on Monday evening, June 16th, it went through Chester. The people in the ancient borough, knowing that the company was ordered to Washington, gathered at the station and along the railroad. The boys in blue, as they caught sight of their friends and acquaintances, waved their hats from the car windows and platforms and cheered, which was taken up and answered by the people who had been watching their coming so anxiously. The main body of the regiment was then at Washington guarding the quartermaster-general's stores, the arsenal, and the flying bridge at Georgetown. The regiment was subsequently assigned to Gen. Hooker's division, and early in April, 1862, was transported to the Peninsula, where it took part in the siege of Yorktown, and on May 5th, at the battle of Williamsburg in front of Fort Magruder, it drove the enemy out of the rifle-pits into the works, which position it held for eight hours until fresh troops came to its support, and the fort was taken. It was engaged at Seven Pines, and in "the change of base," on June 19th, was in action at Savage Station. On the 20th it was engaged in the battle of White Oak Swamp from noon to night, and just before dusk of that long summer day it made a brilliant bayonet charge, breaking the enemy's line, compelling them to retire, and the following day it took part in the battle of Malvern Hill. On August 20th it was with Heintzelman's corps, dispatched to the support of Gen. Pope. In that campaign it was engaged at Bristoe Station on the 26th, and the next day opened communication for the army with its base of supplies. On the 29th it marched through Centreville to Bull Run, going at once into the fight, where it suffered severely. Capt. Meekins, of Company K, was killed in this battle. The next day the Twenty-sixth Regiment was held as support to three different batteries, which compelled it to march rapidly from point to point as occasion required. At Burnside's defeat at Fredericksburg it was in the front line of battle, and was engaged with but slight intermission for thirty hours. At Chancellorsville, on May 2, 1863, the regiment made a reconnoissance up the road in front of Hooker's headquarters to feel the enemy, and on the 3d it was held as a support to batteries after it had fallen back to the intrenchments, a movement made necessary after the Seventy-second New York had broken, leaving the flank of the Twenty-sixth uncovered and exposed to a heavy fire, by which it lost nearly a hundred men. In the Gettysburg campaign it was with Gen. Sickles, and reached the field on the evening of the 1st of July, 1863. The next day the regiment was on the extreme right of the division, and suffered severely. Late in the day it sustained a charge of a Florida brigade, which it checked, and in turn charged the enemy, driving the latter in confusion, capturing many prisoners. The loss of the Twenty-sixth Regiment in this battle was appalling. It had gone into the fight with three hundred and sixty-four men, and its loss was two hundred and sixteen killed and wounded, this number including three color-bearers who were killed. In Grant's campaign, on May 5, 1864, at the battle of the Wilderness, it was on the extreme left of the army and held its position, although repeatedly assailed. On the 12th, at Spottsylvania Court-House, it took part in Hancock's grand charge with the Second Corps, and in the engagement the Twenty-sixth captured two Napoleon guns, which it turned with effect on the enemy. It was actively engaged at the crossing of the North Anna River, and on the 27th of May crossed the Pamunkey River at Nelson's Ford, where its term of service having expired it was ordered to Philadelphia, where, on June 18, 1864, in front of Independence Hall, it was mustered out.

30th Regiment, First Reserves.

30th Regiment

Early in May, 1861, Samuel A. Dyer began recruiting men at Chester for a company of infantry then termed the "Keystone Guards." So rapidly had troops responded to the call of the President that the quota of Pennsylvania was filled, and for a time it seemed as though no men save those who had already been accepted would be mustered into service. In this State Governor Curtin, with a better conception of the teaching of the times than any other man in official station in the north (excepting perhaps Simon Cameron), knowing that additional troops would shortly be required, determined to form several camps for military instruction in the State, and to collect there troops, who should be disciplined and equipped ready for the emergency which he saw must come. This purpose Governor Curtin carried into effect, and the soldiers thus collected were subsequently known and will ever be recalled in the annals of the commonwealth in which they played no inconsiderable part, as "the Pennsylvania Reserves." The men who were recruited for the Keystone Guards, as stated, were quartered in the town hall, in Chester, for, a week or ten days, maintained by the voluntary subscription of several citizens of the borough, and finally, the name being changed to "Slifer Phalanx," in honor of Hon. Eli Slifer, then secretary of the commonwealth, the organization was ordered to report at the Girard House, Philadelphia, where it was mustered in May 31, 1861. While there a handsome flag was presented to the company by the ladies of Chester. Hon. Edward Darlington made the presentation address. On June 4th the Slifer Phalanx left for Camp Wayne, at West Chester, where it became Company C, Thirtieth Regiment First Pennsylvania Reserves, for a term of three years' service.

When the first intelligence reached Delaware County that Fort Sumter had been occupied by the Confederates, and the President had issued the call for troops, William Cooper Talley began recruiting at Crozerville and Rockdale an infantry company, then called the "Rockdale Rifle Guards." Subsequently the title was changed to the "Archy Dick Volunteers," so named in honor of Archibald T. Dick, a deceased eminent member of the bar of Delaware County. The quota of the State being full, Capt. Talley encountered the like difficulty in having the company accepted, as related respecting the "Slifer Phalanx." The action of Governor Curtin in forming the Pennsylvania Reserves, as heretofore stated, furnished the opportunity to this company to be accepted, and at Camp Wayne, on May 30, 1861, the organization was mustered into the Thirtieth Regiment, First Reserves, as Company F, for three years' service.

Although the Delaware County Companies C and F were mustered into the service of the State in the latter part of May, the organization of the regiment was not fully effected until June 9, 1861, when, Biddle Roberts was chosen colonel; and in making his appointments he selected Lieut, Joseph R.T. Coates, of Company C, for quartermaster. On July 4th Governor Curtin reviewed the First and Seventh Reserves at West Chester. On the 21st the First Regiment was ordered to Washington, and at daylight the next day marched for Baltimore, reaching that place at nine o'clock the same evening. As Col. Roberts approached the city he was met by the police authorities, who advised him that, as the populace was much excited, it would be well not to attempt to pass through the streets. The colonel, however, ordered ammunition to be distributed to his men, and he marched through Baltimore without molestation. On July 26, at Camp Carroll, the regiment was mustered into the United States service, and immediately marched to Annapolis, where it was quartered in the naval school; remaining there until August 30th, it was moved to Tenallytown, Md., and assigned to the First Brigade under Gen. Reynolds, of McCall's division. In all the movements preceding the Peninsular advance it took part, and at Mechanicsville in that campaign it was on the extreme right of the Army of the Potomac, and under Fitz John Porter was in the battle of the 26th of June, 1862. There the First Regiment held the centre of the brigade, and in a struggle of three hours repulsed the enemy, sleeping on the ground it had held so valiantly. The next morning it was ordered to fall back, and the brigade retired in the direction of Gaines' Mills. On the 27th, the First and Eighth Reserves moved to the rear for ammunition. Fitz John Porter seeing this movement galloped to Col. Roberts and exclaimed, "Colonel, can't you form a line with the two regiments and stop those fleeing troops?" The answer was affirmative, if ammunition was furnished his men, and that being promised, the two regiments formed in line with a coolness and precision which received the warm approval of the general. On the 30th, at Newmarket, the First Reserves for five hours main tamed its position, repulsing three distinct heavy charges of the enemy, and its gallantry on that occasion was specially mentioned in McCall's official report.

In Pope's campaign, on August 29th and the day following, it was constantly under fire, marching most of the time, and during the forty-eight hours was totally without food. On Sunday, the 14th of September, 1862, at South Mountain, the regiment charged the gorge and summit of the eminence held by a part of Hill's corps. The column rushed onward with a yell, driving the enemy before it, and gained the summit, where the First Reserve slept on their arms during the night, ready to resume the struggle in the morning, but the Confederates withdrew under cover of the darkness. The next morning Hooker personally came to the ground and thanked the regiment for its valor. In that terrific charge, Second lieutenant John H. Taylor, of Company C, son of Joseph Taylor, recently deceased, fell leading his command. On the 16th of September, the eve of Antietam, the First was skirmishing with the enemy during the night, and at daylight of the 17th it went in action and continued until nine o'clock, when it was relieved. Capt. Talley commanded the regiment in the greater part of that battle, Col. Roberts having been thrown in command of the First Brigade, and after Hooker was wounded, March 1, 1863, Capt. Talley was promoted to be colonel of the regiment.

At the battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862, the First Reserves charged across an open plain under a heavy enfilading artillery fire, and drove the enemy two hundred yards beyond his intrenchments, when finding that he was flanked on the right, the enemy strongly reinforced in front, and no supporting troops coming up in the rear, Col. Talley "was compelled to retire after having opened the way to victory." During Lee's invasion of Pennsylvania the regiments, on the 29th of June, 1863, marched with the main army for Gettysburg, and when the State line was crossed Col. Talley halted his men and announced that they were then on their own soil, where they must battle for their homes and families, and know no rest until Pennsylvania had been freed from every enemy in martial array.

On July 2nd, arriving at Gettysburg, the regiment went immediately to the front, and on the right of Little Round Top charged the enemy with great gallantry, driving them back upon their reserve. On the 3d, in the brilliant charges made by the First Brigade, the First Regiment, commanded by Col. Talley, occupied the centre. The regiment took part in the battle of Bristoe Station and in the numerous movements of the Army of the Potomac during the latter part of 1863. In Grant's campaign, on the 5th of May, 1864, it was engaged in the battle of the Wilderness, and on May 8th, at the battle of Spottsylvania. Col. Talley was then in command of the brigade, and while charging for the third time through a thicket of pine, he was captured by soldiers of Ewell's corps, but the following day he, with several hundred prisoners, was rescued by Sheridan's cavalry. The last day of service for the Pennsylvania Reserves was May 31, 1864, and on that day the First Regiment (Thirtieth of the line) took a conspicuous part in the battle of Bethesda Church. The next day, June 1, 1864, the Reserves were ordered home, and on June 13th were mustered out of service at Philadelphia. On March 13, 1865, Col. Talley received the rank of brigadier-general of volunteers, by brevet, for distinguished services in the field.



58th Regiment (Three-Years' Service).

58th Regiment

The county of Delaware, which furnished nearly fifty men to this regiment, in the official publications of the State receives no credit therefor, a statement that is equally true so far as it relates to other organizations, the general statement merely being made, "recruited in Philadelphia and vicinity." The fact is that nearly one-half of Company A was recruited in this county, while in Companies, B,C, and K, men from this neighborhood were mustered into service among the first that enlisted in the ranks of the regiment. On March 8, 1862, the Fifty-eighth was ordered to Fortress Monroe, arriving at its destination the next day, Sunday, the 9th, while the action between the ironclad "Merrimac" and "Monitor" was in progress. On May 10th it led the advance under Gen. Wool, and after the surrender of the city of Norfolk on that day, the flag of the Fifty-eighth was unfurled over the custom-house, where it remained until the regiment was ordered to Beaufort, N.C. While at Norfolk, First lieutenant Thomas I. Leiper, of Company A, who, while the regiment was in Philadelphia before being ordered to the front, had been appointed adjutant, was assigned to the staff of Gen. Thomas L. Kane, under whom he was in service at the battles of Antietam and Gettysburg. On Sept. 9, 1863, Leiper was promoted captain of Company A, and he thereupon returned to his command.

On June 27, 1862, the Fifty eighth was ordered to garrison Washington, N.C., at the head of navigation of the Pamlico River, and while there it was daily drilled in heavy artillery practice. On the 16th of December, Capt. Theodore Blakeley, of Company B, a gallant soldier from Chester, with a detachment of one hundred men, made a foray into the country fifteen miles southward, and captured a Confederate cavalry encampment, a captain, and sixty men, with all their horses and equipments, so absolutely surprising the enemy that they yielded without a gun being fired. For this Capt. Blakeley was complimented in an order from department headquarters. On May 1, 1864, the regiment joined the Army of the James, under Gen. Butler, in the operations against Richmond, and on the 9th the Fifty-eighth was in action near the Appomattox River, and the following day destroyed for a considerable distance the Petersburg and Richmond Railroad. The regiment was subsequently transferred to the army under Grant, and at Cold Harbor, on the 3d of June, it charged the enemy's works, capturing the rifle-pits, and, as related by a New York Herald correspondent, - "Here, however, the men found themselves close prisoners, for it was utterly impossible for a head or an arm to make its appearance without being riddled by bullets. For two long hours the regiment held its position until it was reinforced." On the 15th, it having returned to the Army of the James, it was in the attack on the enemy's lines in front of Petersburg, when the outer works were carried. On June 24th the re-enlisted soldiers were ordered to Philadelphia on the regular furlough granted to all veterans re-entering the service, and because of the good conduct of the regiment twenty days beyond the usual time was granted to them. Capt. Leiper remained at the front in command of the men who had not re-enlisted, and the recruits forwarded to the Fifty-eighth. The furlough having expired, the regiment joined the army on the north of the James, and on September 28th the Fifty-eighth and One Hundred and Eighth Pennsylvania made the desperate assault on Fort Harrison in face of sixteen guns of heavy calibre, in which the colors of the Fifty-eighth were three times shot away, and out of the two hundred and twenty-eight men of that regiment who had made the charge, one hundred and twenty-eight were killed and wounded. Among the former was the brave Capt. Theodore Blakeley, of Chester. The fort, with its cannon, small-arms, battle-flags, and garrison, was captured in this intrepid charge. The same day the two regiments were ordered to assault the Star Fort, a mile to the left of Fort Harrison, and although the brave fellows scaled the works and spiked the guns, weakened by their previous feat and unsupported, they were obliged to fall back under the heavy fire played upon them by the enemy's gunboats.

In the final campaign which resulted in the capture of Lee's army it bore an honored part, and after the enemy's force' in the field was dispersed, it was assigned to duty in the lower counties of Virginia, and was mustered out at City Point, Va., Jan. 24, 1866.

60th Regiment (3rd Cavalry).

60th Regiment

Early in July, 1861, Capt. William L. Laws recruited a company of cavalry in Delaware County, opening a station in Chester for that purpose. The men were enlisted for three years, and as the regiment was the first of that arm of the service to organize for a lengthened period of duty, so it is believed that Capt. Law's men were the first in the State willing to enroll for three years. Pennsylvania's quota being filled at the time, Col. William H. Young obtained permission to raise a regiment in any part of the country, which should be known as Young's Light Kentucky Cavalry. Law's company, for some reason, was not accepted as a whole in this' regiment, the greater number of the men being assigned to Company I, under Capt. William K. Grant, and the remainder distributed among the other companies. Subsequently the regiment, which was entirely recruited in Pennsylvania, excepting Company D (from Washington City), was credited to this State, and then Governor Curtin requested Col. Young's resignation.

On Oct. 31, 1861, he appointed William W. Averill, an officer of the Fifth United States Cavalry, in Young's stead. At first the new commander was very unpopular with the men because of the strict discipline to which he subjected the regiment, it under Young having been very loose, but its subsequent honorable story was largely the outgrowth of the stringent measures then adopted. During the winter and spring of 1862 it was constantly in the advance, and was the first Union force to enter the works at Manassas and ascertain that the enemy had abandoned the fortification there. In the Peninsular campaign it was constantly in service, such as is demanded from "the eyes of an army," and in the change of base, during that week of battles, the men were almost constantly in the saddle, covering the flanks of the columns. At Antietam it rendered efficient service, and when the army, in October, crossed into Virginia it covered the right flank, which brought it constantly in collision with Stuart's and Hampton's command, and finally driving the latter into their hiding-places in the Blue Ridge. On March 16th it encountered Fitz-Hugh Lee and Stuart's cavalry at Kelley's Ford, and there taught the enemy that the Northern cavalry, which they heretofore had ridiculed, was able to cope with the best horsemen of the Confederate army and defeat them. Previous to the battle of Chancellorsville the Sixtieth Regiment rode in the noted raid which traversed the country in Lee's rear, and for a time severed his railroad communication with Richmond. On the 19th of June, 1863, it took part in Buford's and Gregg's attack on Stuart, between Culpeper Court-House and Beverly Ford, in which the latter, after a five-hours' fight, was so signally defeated that for a time it compelled a de1ay in the proposed invasion of Pennsylvania. And two weeks later it was in the engagement at Aldie, which resulted in cutting off from Lee the whole of Stuart's command, so that the former was deprived of the greater part of his cavalry until after the battle of Gettysburg. On the 2nd of July, at that battle, the Sixtieth Regiment sustained the charge of Hampton's division in the latter's attempt to gain the rear of the Union army, and, although it was driven back by weight of numbers, when Custer came to its assistance it rallied and joined in the charge, in which the enemy was defeated with heavy loss. It took part in the action at Old Antietam Forge, on the 10th of July, as well as that at Shepherdstown, on the 16th of the same month. It led the brave charge near Culpeper Court-House, on September 13th, and was complimented in a general order for valor. On October 14th it was engaged at Bristoe Station, and on the 15th, when the cavalry covered the army wagon-train of seventy miles, the Sixtieth was the rear-guard and sustained the attack of Gordon's division and repulsed it, holding its ground for over two hours before it was supported. Once again, for this brave deed, Gen. Buford issued an order commendatory of the skill and valor it displayed. On the 26th, at New Hope Church, dismounting, it, with the First Massachusetts, sustained the charge of the Stonewall Brigade, maintaining its position for two hours, until Sykes' regulars had time to advance to its support. During the Wilderness campaign with Grant it was constantly in service, and when Grant and Meade crossed the James on pontoon bridges, the Sixtieth acted as the escort. Its story in the engagements preceding the surrender of Lee is part of the history of those days of battle, and when, on the 3d of April, Grant and Meade entered Petersburg, it formed part of the escort to the generals. When Lee surrendered, the Sixtieth Regiment was in the advance between the lines of battle of the two armies. It was subsequently mustered out of service at Richmond on Aug. 7, 1865.

97th Regiment

97th Regiment

In the latter part of July, 1861, Henry R. Guss, of West Chester, was authorized by the Secretary of War to raise a regiment for three years' service. Company D, the Concordville Rifles, Capt. William S. Mendenhall, was recruited in the western end of the county; Company G, the Broomall Guards (named in honor of Hon. J.M. Broomall), Capt. Jesse L. Cummins, was recruited mostly in Media and Chester and neighborhood; and Company I, Brooke Guards (so called in honor of Hon. Hugh Jones Brooke, post commissary of Pennsylvania, who contributed largely to the outfit and comforts of the men), Capt. George W. Hawkins, was recruited mostly from Springfield and Ridley townships. Many of the men had been in the three-months' service, and had some knowledge of military duties. The companies rendezvoused at Camp Wayne, near West Chester, where, on November 12th, the day it left for Washington, Governor Curtin presented the State colors to the regiment. It was shortly after ordered to Fortress Monroe, and subsequently to Port Royal, S.C., where it arrived off the harbor on the 11th of December, but heavy weather compelled the vessel to put to sea, and it was three days before the men could disembark. In January, 1862, it took part in the expedition to Warsaw Sound, Georgia, which resulted in the capture of Fort Pulaski, and on March 5th the Ninety-seventh was landed from the transport in the Florida expedition, and captured the town of Fernandina and Fort Church. In March, Gen. Hunter relieved Gen. Sherman, and the new commander ordered the evacuation of Florida. In a bold reconnoissance to Legarsville, S.C., in June, 1862, Company G (Broomall Guards) and Company H occupied Legarsville. On the 10th of June, in the Confederate attack at Secessionville, the Ninety-seventh stood the brunt of the fight until the gunboats could get into position and open fire with effect. In the fall of that year the regiment suffered severely with intermittent fever, five hundred men being at one time on the sick-list, and there were also many cases of yellow fever, a number of which proved fatal. In April, 1863, it was at Folly Island, Charleston Harbor, during the bombardment of Fort Sumter. At the storming of Fort Wagner the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts (colored) Regiment, leading the assaulting column, suffered dreadfully under the murderous fire from the fort, and when the attack failed, Companies C, D (Concordville Rifles), E, and I (Broomall Guards) stacked arms, and during the entire night were engaged in bearing off the wounded colored soldiers, Brig. Gen. Stevenson urging them on in the merciful work with the oft-repeated expression, "You know how much harder they will fare at the hands of the enemy than white men." Never, did troops expose themselves more than did these brave men, who in the darkness crawled on the ground to the very slope of the enemy's intrenchment, directed by the groans of the wounded, and dragged away the suffering black soldiers to where they would be taken and borne within the Union lines. Nowhere in all the scroll of history is recorded a nobler or braver deed than this. The regiment subsequently was active in the siege of Fort Wagner, which the enemy evacuated on the night of Sept. 6, 1863. The Ninety-seventh was ordered to Florida in October of that year, where it was engaged in reconnoissances and breaking up supply-stations of the enemy. In April, 1864, it was ordered to the Army of the James, under Gen. Butler, where it was attached to the First Brigade, Third Division. On May 9th it led the advance on Petersburg, detailed to destroy the railroad and telegraph wires, which work it accomplished, and the same day took part. in the action of Swift Creek, When Beauregard, on the 18th, attacked the Army of the James, the pickets of the Eighth Maine were driven back, and the Ninety-seventh was ordered to retake the position, which was done in. the face of a hot and destructive fire of musketry. On the evening of the 19th, when four of the companies had been driven back with fearful slaughter and the line broken, the remainder of the regiment, which included all the Delaware County companies, was ordered to advance and retake it. The command was obeyed with alacrity, and the line advanced, notwithstanding grape, canister, and musketry volleys tore frightful gaps in the ranks, until at last they were recalled, after having sustained a loss of nearly two hundred men killed and wounded. During all the campaign it was constantly in the advance, and on the 30th of June, Capt. Mendenhall, of Company D (Concordville Rifles), with three hundred from other regiments, was ordered to assault the enemy's works in front of the cemetery, an attack designed to direct the latter's attention from the real point of assault. The order was bravely obeyed, the works were captured and held until nightfall, although the real attack was not made. Over one-third of the force under Mendenhall was killed and wounded, On the 30th of July, when the mine was exploded, Capt. Hawkins (Brooke Guard), in command of five companies, successfully charged the enemy's rifle-pits. In this assault Capt. Mendenhall was wounded.

On the 15th of August the regiment took part in the action at Deep Bottom, and on the 16th at Strawberry Plains. On the 25th, at Bermuda Hundred, it was attacked by the enemy at the front while it was being relieved, and a part of its line was captured, which was afterwards retaken. It participated, on September 28th, in the capture of New Market Heights, and the same day took part in the unsuccessful assault on Fort Gilmore. On Oct. 27, 1864, the regiment had a short engagement with the enemy at Darbytown roads, in which Capt. George W. Hawkins was mortally wounded.

The story of the regiment, so far as it relates to the history of Delaware County in the main, closes about the end of October, 1864, when the period of service of the troops expired; for, although the numerical designation remained, the regiment after that time had little of its original elements, but was made up of drafted men and substitutes in nowise connected with our annals.

106th Regiment (Three Years' Service)

106th Regiment - Part of the Philadelphia Brigade
- The regiment was recruited in Philadelphia during the late summer and early fall of 1861, and was part of Baker's brigade, and at the battle of Ball's Bluff the One Hundred and Sixth was on the Maryland side, but for lack of transportation were unable to cross to the assistance of their comrades, who were being overpowered by the superior number of the enemy opposing them. At the battle of Fair Oaks it supported Kirby's battery against Magruder's assault, the latter having sworn that as that battery was formerly in the United States army under his command, he was determined to capture it; but Magruder's repeated efforts to that end were unsuccessful. At Savage Station, although exposed to a severe fire of artillery and musketry, it repelled for nearly three hours every charge made upon it, at one time during the engagement being engaged in a desperate hand-to-hand struggle. At Antietam it suffered severely; in ten minutes, at a fence near Dunker Church, one-third of the entire regiment was stricken down. At the battle of Fredericksburg, on the 13th, it charged, under a terrific artillery fire, to within seventy-five yards of the enemy's works, and from mid-day to darkness it held its ground, and on May 3, 1863, it advanced to the assistance of Sedgwick, commanding the Sixth Corps, at Salem Church, when the latter was fighting against overwhelming odds at that point.

At Gettysburg the One Hundred and Sixth came on the field at midnight of July 1st and took position behind the low stone wall on the right centre of the line, in front of and to the left of Meade's headquarters. On the afternoon of the 2nd, when Sickles' line was broken the One Hundred and Sixth was part of Webb's brigade which marched to the gap in the line, and when it reached the crest the enemy, not sixty yards in front, were pressing on as to certain victory. The brigade fired a close musketry volley at the advancing foe and then charged, striking the enemy on the left flank, hurling back his advancing column. The One Hundred and Sixth and two companies of the Second New York pursued the retreating enemy as far as the Emmettsburg road. The following day it was at Cemetery Hill, to support the Twelfth Corps, and stationed on the right of the Baltimore pike, near Rickets' Battery, it remained under the terrific cannonading of that day until the close of the battle. During the Wilderness campaign it was almost constantly in action, and took part in Hancock's famous charge at Spottsylvania in the gray of the morning of May 12th. It was engaged at the North Anna, and in the battle of Cold Harbor the brigade of which the One Hundred and Sixth was part attempted to drive the enemy from his intrenchment, but they were too strong, and the men, dropping on the ground, remained until night, when they threw up a breastwork, which they held. Crossing the James, it took part in the action of June 14th before Petersburg, and the movement upon Jerusalem plank-road a week later. The regiment was mustered out of service Sept. 10, 1864.

112th (Second Artillery) Regiment.

112th Regiment - On the recommendation of Gen. McClellan, Charles Angeroth, of Philadelphia, in October, 1861, was authorized by the Secretary of War to recruit a battalion of heavy artillery, - afterwards enlarged to a regiment, - the Second Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, the One Hundred and Twelfth of the line. On Feb. 25, 1862, seven companies were ordered to Washington. Remaining in the fortification there until the spring of 1864, the regiment had increased by enlistments to three thousand three hundred men, when it was divided into two regiments, the second body under the name of the Second Provisional Heavy Artillery. The new regiment was dispatched to the front, and, as infantry, assigned to duty in the Ninth Corps. It took part in all the battles of the Wilderness campaign, and suffered severely, June 17th, in the charge at Petersburg. In May, 1864, the original regiment was ordered to join the Army of the Potomac, and assigned to the Eighteenth Army Corps under Gen. Baldy Smith. The story of this organization - two in one - is that of the severe year of battle until the fall of Richmond and surrender of Lee. The Second Division, or Provisional Regiment, had hard service before Petersburg, losing in four months about one thousand men. It was part of the brigade which charged into the crater when the mine was exploded, and on the 29th of September, 1864, after Fort Harrison had been captured, the Second Pennsylvania Artillery and Eighty-ninth New York were ordered to charge on Battery Gilmore, but the movement not being supported it resulted disastrously, the Second Artillery losing in killed, wounded, and prisoners two hundred men. The history of the regiment is most honorable, but, being intrusted with the defenses of Washington for two years, it was deprived, until the last year of the war, of displaying on the blood-stained battle-fields, before Grant became commander of the Army of the Potomac, that valor which in a few months earned for the One Hundred and Twelfth merited distinction.

The following men were recruited from Delaware County:

119th Regiment (Three-Years' Service).

119th Regiment

On Aug. 5, 1862, Peter C. Elimaker, of Philadelphia, who had been authorized by Governor Curtin to enlist a regiment, began recruiting for the One Hundred and Nineteenth Pennsylvania. William C. Gray, of Chester, had raised a company in Delaware County known as the Delaware County Guards, which he tendered to the authorities here to be credited to this county, but was told that the quota was full and the commissioners did not feel justified in accepting them. Capt. Gray thereupon offered the company to Col. Elimaker. The offer was accepted, and the organization was mustered in as Company E, of the One Hundred and Nineteenth Regiment, on Aug. 10, 1862. The demand for troops became so pressing that on August 31st, before the regiment was perfectly organized, it was ordered to Washington, the following day reported at the capital, and was assigned for the protection of the arsenal. About the middle of October it joined the Army of the Potomac, then in camp near Antietam, being assigned to the First Brigade, Second Division, Sixth Army Corps.
"Though suddenly thrown among veterans of two campaigns,"
says Bates,
"it was prepared by its thorough training to hold its place with credit,"
On Dec. 15, 1862, at Fredericksburg, the regiment was for the first time in action, and, although exposed to heavy artillery fire, maintained its ground like veterans. Subsequently, when the "Light Division" was organized, it was assigned to the Third Brigade, First Division, under Gen. Russell. On April 28, 1863, when Hooker advanced, under cover of night the brigade crossed the Rappahannock at Banks' Ford on pontoon-boats, drove in the Confederate pickets and held the position on the right bank of the river. The next morning it moved forward in line of battle and drove the enemy from the rifle-pits, which it held until May 3d, when the Confederates retreated and the corps was sent in pursuit, the One Hundred and Nineteenth and Ninety-fifth Pennsylvania Regiments detached and marched along the plank-road in the direction of Chancellorsville. At Salem Church the latter force coming upon the enemy posted in a woods, concealed from sight, an immediate engagement followed at close quarters. The One Hundred and Nineteenth, posted on the left of the road, were confronted by a largely superior force, but gallantly maintained its position, although it suffered severely, losing out of four hundred and thirty-two men twelve killed and one hundred and twelve wounded. The following day Sedgwick, learning that Hooker had been defeated and finding that the corps was outnumbered and would be overwhelmed, recrossed the river.

On July 1, 1863, the brigade was at Manchester, Md., when it was hastily summoned to Gettysburg; and at nine o'clock began its march, which, without intermission, was continued until four o'clock the next afternoon, when it reached the field of battle. On the morning of the 3d it moved to the extreme left of the line, in rear of Round Top, to meet any flank movement which might be made, but was not engaged, the enemy making no determined assault at that part of the field. On the 4th it was stationed at Little Round Top, and on the 5th was in advance in pursuit of the retreating enemy, with whom it had a slight engagement at Fairfield. Pursuit was then abandoned by Meade, but the One Hundred and Nineteenth, on the 13th of July, came upon the enemy at Hagerstown, and at once engaged the latter's skirmishers, but during the night the Confederates decamped.

On November 7th, at Rappahannock Station, the Confederates were in strong position, covering three Pontoon bridges, when, at the earnest desire of Gen. Russell, he was ordered to storm the works, and, in the face of a murderous fire, the intrenchments were carried at the point of the bayonet, the whole of the enemy being captured. Gen. Meade, in his order, publicly thanked the storming party for their gallantry in the assault, in which four guns, two thousand small-arms, eight battle-flags, one bridge-train, and sixteen hundred prisoners were taken. In this short, fierce struggle the One Hundred and Nineteenth lost seven killed and forty-three wounded.

In the Wilderness campaign, on the 4th of May, 1864, the brigade crossed the Rapidan at Germania Ford, and at noon on the 5th became engaged, the One Hundred and Nineteenth holding the centre. The fighting continued until nightfall, and during it four color-bearers were killed or wounded. On the 10th the fighting was very severe, and in the terrible charge through the iron storm of death that afternoon the colors of the regiment were borne to the front and planted on the enemy's works, but being unsupported, it was finally forced to fall back, suffering fearfully as it retired. On the 12th it was in action from seven o'clock in the morning until nightfall, in the struggle known as the "Bloody Angle," or "Slaughter Pen," where it expended two hundred rounds of ammunition per man. From the 4th to the 12th of May, out of four hundred men fit for duty, the regiment lost two hundred and fifteen in killed and wounded. During all this series of severe engagements the One Hundred and Nineteenth was led by Capts. Gray and Landell, Col. Clark resuming command of the regiment on the 12th of that month.

On June 1st, at Cold Harbor, the brigade was ordered to feel the position of the enemy, and on the 12th it lay within one hundred and fifty yards of the Confederate line, under a constant fire. During all the fierce fighting which had occurred from the 1st to the 12th, Maj. Gray was in charge of the regiment, and afterwards continued to direct its movements at Bermuda Hundred and before Petersburg.

When Early was demonstrating in the valley of the Shenandoah, the Sixth Corps was dispatched to the support of the army there. On September 19th, at the battle of Winchester, the One Hundred and Nineteenth drove the entire rebel line for half a mile, until the latter, falling back on a strong position, its advance was temporarily checked. At four o'clock the Union line was strengthened, and Sheridan leading it forward, the enemy were driven before it in utter rout. On the 20th the brigade was detached for garrison duty in Winchester, where it remained until the following November.

During the last struggle of the war the One Hundred and Nineteenth was highly distinguished, for on April 2nd the regiment, unaided, and under a fierce fire from front and flank, stormed and carried part of the enemy's intrenchments in front of Petersburg, capturing the opposing force, with all the artillery, small-arms, and colors. Col. Clark having been wounded early in the action, the command devolved on lieutenant-Col. Gray. The enemy in fleeing, on the 6th, was overtaken, strongly posted on Sailor's Creek. The brigade forded the stream, waist-deep in water and charging on the demoralized Confederates captured them in mass. This was the last engagement in which the One Hundred and Nineteenth took part.

After the surrender of Johnston (the regiment had marched to Danville, Va., to unite with Sherman's army)it returned to Washington, and on the 6th of June was mustered out at Philadelphia. On May 13, 1864, Maj. Gray was commissioned by Governor Curtin lieutenant-colonel, and on April 6, 1865, the President commissioned him lieutenant-colonel by brevet, for gallant and meritorious services before Petersburg and at the battle of Little Sailor's Creek, on March 10, 1865.

124th Regiment (Nine-Months' Service).

124th Regiment

Three companies of this regiment - Company B (the Delaware County Fusileers), Capt. Simon Litzenberg, Company D (Gideon's Band), Capt. Norris L. Yarnall, and Company H (Delaware County Volunteers), Capt. James Barton, Jr. - were recruited in Delaware County. The regiment rendezvoused at Camp Curtin, but before an organization was effected the One Hundred and Twenty-fourth was ordered to Washington, and on Aug. 12, 1862, was hurried forward. At the national capital it was organized, with Joseph W. Hawley, of West

Chester, as colonel; Simon Litzenberg, captain of the Delaware County Fusileers, lieutenant-colonel; and Isaac Lawrence Haldeman (Major Haldeman was previously on Gen. Dana's staff), first lieutenant of Gideon's Band, major. The One Hundred and Twenty-fourth was assigned to the First Brigade, First Division of the Eleventh Corps. On the evening of Sept. 16, 1862, having marched all day without rations, it reached Antietam Creek, and the hungry men had just received provisions, when an order came commanding it to move at double-quick to the support of Gen. Hooker, on the right wing. In the early dawn of the next morning, while the light was so indistinct that the several captains could hardly distinguish their companies, they were ordered to advance and became engaged with the enemy. Here they fought, being driven back and recapturing their position several times, holding their ground finally when the enemy's guns were silenced at three o'clock in the afternoon. The weary men, who had been engaged for eight hours, were then relieved and ordered to the rear, where Gen. Hancock held it in readiness to support the batteries on the right. That night it bivouacked on the field. In its first battle fifty men were killed and wounded, Col. Hawley being among the latter. The One Hundred and Twenty-fourth was subsequently assigned to the brigade commanded by Gen. Kane, and when it was transferred to the Twelfth Corps, Kane still continued its brigade commander in Geary's division. In the disastrous campaign culminating at Chancellorsville it took an active part. On May 1, 1863, it was on the right wing of the Twelfth Corps, and in the advance had pushed the enemy before it until it was in danger of being flanked, when it was ordered to retire to the position it held the evening previous. On May 2nd it advanced along the Fredericksburg plank-road, and the brigade being unable to dislodge the enemy from their intrenchments, returned to their breastworks, and had hardly reached them when the demoralized Eleventh Corps came rushing in from the extreme right wing. Geary's division was immediately formed to check the pursuing enemy, and from ten in the morning until three o'clock in the afternoon it held its ground nobly until, outflanked, it was compelled to return to a second position, at which it readily repulsed every assault made upon it. On the 6th it recrossed the Rappahannock, and on the 9th of May, its period of service having expired, it was forwarded to Harrisburg, where it was discharged on the 16th of the month.

Pope in the summer of 1862, it was believed by the Confederate authorities had so depressed the North that a bold invasion of the latter territory might possibly cause a general popular movement to end the war even by the acknowledgment of the Southern

Confederated States, or at least secure the recognition of the latter government by the English and French nations. It was also thought that if there should be much accession to the Confederate ranks from Maryland it would be a strong argument to press on the European governments that a war of subjugation could never be successful, hence in the interest of humanity steps would be taken by these powers to terminate the hopeless struggle. The result of the invasion, however, was just the reverse of these expectations. In the mean while the United States, on Aug. 4, 1862, ordered a draft for six hundred thousand men, three hundred thousand to be immediately called to the field. On the 1st of September the authorities of the State announced that no county in the commonwealth had at that time sent as many soldiers to the army as Delaware County, according to population; that it then had 1474 men in the service, and its full quota was 1801. Upper Providence held the proud prominence of having contributed the greatest number of men, according to its inhabitants, of any locality in Pennsylvania, having sent one hundred and thirty-four soldiers to the field.

On September 5th, Gen. Lee with his entire command crossed the Potomac, and the whole North rose to resist the invasion, while, contrary to Confederate expectation, the desertions from the ranks of Lee's army were greater in numbers than the recruits which gathered under its standard in Maryland. On Sept. 4, 1862, Governor Curtin ordered the formation ofmilitary companies, and on the 11th called fifty thousand militia of the State to the field to protect the threatened commonwealth. As a consequence the utmost excitement prevailed, all business was suspended, nothing occupying public attention but the organization of militia companies and forwarding them to the designated stations where State troops were ordered to report. William Frick, at that time a leading business man of Chester, within a few hours after the call was issued, hastened to Harrisburg and tendered his services to the State in any capacity in which he was fitted to act. Governor Curtin immediately appointed him colonel of the Third Regiment of militia, but he declined to accept the position, stating that his knowledge of military movements was too limited to have the command of such a body of men, but the Governor insisted that at least he should be major of that organization, and as such he was mustered into service.

There was no Sunday in Delaware County on Sept. 14, 1862, but all day long recruiting went on and men hastened their preparations to go to the front, while the busy hands of the women were actively employed in getting their fathers, husbands, and sons ready to march. On Monday, September 15th, at Media, a company was fully recruited, of which Hon. J.M. Broomall was chosen captain, which, fully equipped and mustered in, on the following day left for Harrisburg. The same day the Chester Guards, commanded by Capt. William R. Thatcher, and the Mechanic Rifles of Chester, Capt. Jonathan Kershaw, equipped partly by the Borough Council, which body appropriated fifteen hundred dollars, which soon was largely augmented by private subscriptions, was also dispatched for the State capital. In Upper Darby the Darby Rangers, Capt. Charles A. Litzenberg, a company from Thornbury and Edgmont, commanded by Capt. James Wilcox, the Delaware County Guards of Concord and Aston, Capt. John H. Barton, and the Upland Guards, Capt. James Kirkman, were also dispatched to designated rendezvous. The latter organization had taken so many men out of the mills at Upland that the factories there were compelled to close, as every able-bodied operator had joined the militia and gone for the front. Samuel Bancroft, of Upper Providence, supplied the blankets for the militia, and declined to receive any compensation for the goods. At that time it is creditable to the patriotism of Delaware County to record that out of a total male population of six thousand men subject to military duty nearly twenty-two hundred were under arms. History nowhere records a more spontaneous uprising of a people than that displayed by the men of Delaware County in the face of this threatening danger to the State. The troops from this section were, after their arrival in Harrisburg, assigned to various regiments and hastened to Chambersburg, where they were stationed at Camp McClure to await orders. Just previous to the battle of Antietam it was serious]y considered whether it was not necessary to cross the borders into Maryland as far as Hagerstown, that they might be in supporting distance of the Union army. When the militia companies were informed of the contemplated movement the officers informed the men that it was voluntarily on their part whether they would go or not, that those who were willing to march beyond the State boundary, if so desired, should advance two paces to the front, and in response to this order not a dozen in all the Delaware County companies declined to volunteer, However, the fierce battle of the 17th of September was fought and won, and when the defeated army of Lee in confusion retreated across the Potomac, the emergency having passed the militia were relieved from further service in the field. The moral support these men rendered in promptly taking the field was of the utmost importance to the cause of the North at that juncture, and the spectacle it presented to the Old World was largely instrumental in preventing recognition by foreign nations of the Confederate State government.

The following is the roll of the various militia companies from Delaware County:

The story of Delaware County during those long years of war is almost a counterpart of every locality of the like character in the Northern States. The enormous drain upon the resources of the nation, the wholesale destruction of life and property stimulated an unusual activity in business to keep pace with the demand, and employed the surplus labor at high wages. The various industrial establishments ran day and night, and yet the market was often unable to furnish goods as rapidly as they were required. As the war advanced the Union armies were necessarily compelled to increase their numbers; every city, town or State, which was won by Northern troops required to be held by the bayonet, while long lines of communication, lengthening as the armies advanced, must be maintained uninterrupted. Hence it became absolutely essential that a great number of men should be called to the field, and as recruiting began to flag, the government was compelled to provide by law for compulsory military service. To that end, in the early summer of 1862, the President notified the various States that unless the required troops were furnished he would call for a conscription in accordance with the act of Congress. In Delaware County, as throughout the North, there was a popular feeling against the measure, and it was determined, if possible, to avoid the enforcement of the law, by offering bounties to men to enlist.

On July 26, 1862, a meeting of prominent citizens was held in the court-house at Media, at which John P. Crozer was chosen president, H. Jones Brooke and Edward Darlington, vice-presidents; Y.S. Walter, secretary; and addresses were made by ex-Judge Haines and Joseph J. Lewis. It was finally determined to instruct the commissioners of the county to borrow fifteen thousand dollars, which sum was to be expended in bounties, additional to those paid by the general government, and for the protection of the commissioners, indemnifying bonds were to be given, in the event of the Legislature declining to enact a law legalizing the expenditure. On Aug. 4, 1852, the general government ordered a draft of six hundred thousand men, three hundred thousand of which number should be immediately called into service, the several States apportioning the quota of the different counties. On September 1st, the authorities at Harrisburg announced that Delaware County had then more men in the field than any other in the commonwealth, according to population. On August 10th, Samuel M. Felton sent one thousand dollars to John P. Crozer, a donation from the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad Company, to aid enlistments. In the mean while Joshua P. Eyre, who was appointed deputy marshal to enroll the male residents of this county, began the work intrusted to him, and so fully was it discharged that the list outnumbered the election returns almost a thousand names. As the autumn came and recruiting had again fallen off, it was then found necessary to enforce the conscription, and on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 1862, the names of two hundred and twenty men, required to fill the quota from Delaware County, were drawn under the supervision of Abel Lodge, of Nether Providence, draft commissioner, and the men so drafted were required to appear at Media on the following Wednesday, the 22nd, for medical examination by Dr. Joseph Rowland, of Upper Providence, examining surgeon. On that day about one hundred presented themselves, when they were told that in the interval the quota had been filled. At that time substitutes could be had for four hundred to five hundred dollars each.



152nd Regiment, 3rd Artillery (Three-Years' Service).

152nd Regiment

The Delaware County men recruited in this regiment were in the batteries ordered to the front to take part in the siege of Petersburg, being posted on the Bermuda front. Unfortunately, although the artillery regiments were as conspicuous as any other in the war, they never acted as a whole, and hence have not received the full credit due them.

160th Regiment, 15th (Anderson) Cavalry (Three-Years' Service).

160th Regiment

In the early part of August, 1862, William J. Palmer began recruiting a battalion of cavalry in Pennsylvania, which was subsequently increased to a full regiment. When Lee crossed the Potomac and advanced into Maryland two hundred and fifty picket men were ordered to the front, while the remainder of the regiment was directed to remain in the Cumberland Valley. The detachment mentioned in the Antietam campaign did effective duty in skirmishing and ascertaining the position of the enemy; and on the 15th of September, when the Confederate troops were retreating from Hagerstown, it charged through the village, capturing thirty stragglers. On Nov. 7, 1862, the regiment was transported to Louisville, Ky., and a month afterwards was ordered to join Rosecrans, at Nashville. On December 26th, Rosecrans, then preparing to give Bragg battle, ordered the Fifteenth Cavalry to advance with Gen. Stanley's division, but the greater part of the regiment stacked arms and refused to obey the command. To the credit of Delaware County, among the three hundred who, deferring whatever grievances they might have to a future time for consideration, volunteered to go to the front, were the following: Captain, Edward Sellers; Lieutenants, Joseph R. Thomas, Edward C. Smith, Annesley N. Morton; Sergeants, Isaac Bartram, Simeon Lord, Jr., Marshall L. Jones, George W. Lukins, Geoffrey P. Denis, John W. Caldwell; Corporals, Hiram P. Eves, Thomas A. Jones, Henry W. Pancost, Benjamin Bartram; Privates, Horatio D. Snyder, Andrew J. Buchanan, Richard Pancost, William Armstrong (the present sheriff), Edward W. Jones, Augustus W. Markley, Samuel Trimble, Charles P. Sellers, Joseph S. Bunting, and William P. Powell. The brave conduct of those three hundred volunteers from this regiment on that occasion was made the subject of a special commendatory order issued by Gen. Rosecrans, and the historian Bates, in referring to this incident, declares that
"the conduct of the men who followed the gallant Rosengarten and Ward, even under the most discouraging circumstances, and met death in the face of the foe, will never cease to be regarded with admiration and gratitude."


Stanley, covering with his command the right flank of the Union army, encountered the enemy on the 27th, whom he attacked, driving them nearly five miles, and on the 29th, at Wilkinson's Cross-Roads, in the engagement there, charged the largely superior force of the enemy, and, finally overpowered, was compelled to retire, not, however, until he again attempted to dislodge the Confederates by a desperate attack. During the four days of battle at Murfreesboro' the detachment was constantly on duty and suffered severely. On the 20th of January, 1863, Rosecrans made a proposition for the reorganization of the regiment, which was accepted, and the Fifteenth Cavalry was thereupon thoroughly organized and equipped. On the 4th of April, after a successful scouting expedition, on its return to camp Rosecrans reviewed the regiment, expressing himself pleased with its good conduct and soldierly bearing. Not only did he do this, but, to show his good feeling, in the Chickamauga campaign he detailed three companies of this regiment to act as his personal escort, while the remainder was instructed to scout and learn the topography of the country in advance of the army. This service brought it in frequent collisions with the enemy, in which its conduct was highly meritorious. So expert had the regiment become in scouting, that in January, 1865, it was especially ordered to watch the enemy and harass their foraging parties. By a bold dash it succeeded in capturing Gen. Vance, part of his staff, one hundred and fifty horses, and fifty men, besides recapturing twenty Union baggage-wagons and prisoners taken by the enemy, and within a week afterwards captured a train of eighteen wagons, ninety mules, and seventy-two men of the enemy. It was indeed the eyes of the army, and furnished important information to the general commanding. The story of its daring expeditions is full of interest, and its subsequent efficiency and valor amends for whatever error it committed in its early history, and several times, indeed, it gave occasion for complimentary orders from brigade and general commanders. Its pursuit of Hood's demoralized troops, after the battle of Nashville, was eminently successful and advantageous to the Union cause, and on May 8, 1865, when searching for Jefferson Davis, near the forks of the Appalachee and Oconee Rivers, it captured seven wagons, one containing one hundred and eighty-eight thousand dollars in coin, one with one million five hundred and eighty-eight thousand dollars in banknotes and other securities, one containing four million dollars of Confederate money, besides considerable specie, plate, and valuables belonging to private parties in Macon. Two days afterwards Company G captured Gen. Bragg, his wife, and staff-officers. The war being at an end, the regiment went to Nashville, where, on the 21st day of May, 1865, it was mustered out of service.

The defeat of Hooker at Chancellorsville, in May, 1863, again aroused the hopes of the Confederate leaders that by a bold, rapid, and successful invasion of the North the war might be brought to a speedy termination. The unpopularity of the draft ordered in the Union States, it was believed by them, would be an important factor in bringing about the result they desired. The active, vigilant Executive of Pennsylvania saw the gathering storm, and began making preparations to meet it when it should come. Hence on June 12th he issued a proclamation asking the cooperation of the people of Pennsylvania in raising a home force for the protection of the State. Rumors of proposed Confederate invasions had been so often current that the plan suggested by Governor Curtin met with but slight public favor. The evidences that such a move was in contemplation, however, became so marked that on June 15, 1863, President Lincoln called for one hundred thousand militia from four States, -the quota of Pennsylvania being placed at fifty thousand men. Shortly before midnight on the 15th a Confederate force occupied Chambersburg, and the news was telegraphed all over the North.

On Monday, June 15th, the undoubted intelligence was received that Lee had invaded Pennsylvania, and the utmost excitement prevailed. In Chester a meeting was immediately held and a company recruited, - - the Chester Guards and Linwood Guards consolidating, - while many of the citizens, aroused to the responsibility of the hour, hastened to Philadelphia, and united with military organizations there. In the Crozer United States Hospital, at Upland, eighty convalescent Union soldiers and a number of men from Bancroft's mill, in Nether Providence, formed a company, with lieutenant Frank Brown, of the Twelfth New Jersey, as commanding officer, and the next day left for Harrisburg; but on Wednesday they were ordered to return, transportation having been refused them at Philadelphia, as it was thought they were in no condition to undergo the fatigue of the campaign. At Media the excitement was, if anything, greater than at Chester. On Wednesday, the 17th, messages were sent in all directions to call the people together, and the court-house bell rang out a general alarm, so that at noon an immense assemblage gathered in the courtroom, and steps were taken to enroll companies at once to go to the front. John M. Broomall had already collected a company, and on that evening started for Harrisburg. Dr. D.A. Vernon, and almost every man in the Delaware County American office, volunteered and went to the front. The next day the Delaware County companies of the One Hundred and Twenty-fourth Regiment, which had been mustered out only a month previously, again offered themselves to do battle for the nation, and the same evening Company B, Capt. Woodcock, and Company D, Capt. Yarnall, left for the State capital. The ranks being incomplete, lieutenant Buckley was ordered to remain at Media to collect the recruits, and on Monday, the 21st, he too followed the troops with a number of men. Capt. James Wilcox, with a company from Glenn Mills, and Capt. Benjamin Brooks, with a company from Radnor, left for Harrisburg on the 17th. John C. Beatty, of Springfield, suspended operations at his edge-tool works that his employés might enlist. At Darby, on Monday, when the news was received a strawberry festival was in progress, given by the Union League to the returned soldiers of the One Hundred and Twenty-fourth Regiment from that neighborhood, and a meeting was immediately organized, when in a short time a full company was recruited. While the enrollment was being made at one end of the porch, where the festival was held, at the other end contributions were being raised to provide for the families of those who would enlist. One aged gentleman subscribed a thousand dollars to the fund. The troops went to the front under command of Capt. Charles Andrews, on the Wednesday following. At Lenni, at short notice, thirty men enrolled who joined the Media company, and on Wednesday a meeting was held at the Black Horse, in Middletown, when a number of men were recruited. In Chester fifty or more colored men proposed to raise a company of their race, but the offer was not accepted.

The public was aroused to the true condition of affairs when, on the afternoon of June 26th, Gordon's brigade of Early's division of Lee's army occupied Gettysburg, and moved on toward Hanover and York. The same day Governor Curtin issued a proclamation calling sixty thousand militia to the field for forty days. The wildest rumors were in the air, and found ready credence. On Sunday, the 28th, at Media it was reported that a Confederate force was marching for Philadelphia, had already advanced as far as Oxford, and the excitement was intense. An old cannon was charged and repeatedly fired as an alarm-gun, while the bells in the town rang out a call for the people to assemble. H. Jones Brooke was chairman, and B.F. Baker secretary of the meeting. Before the people assembled Charles R. Williamson and Frederick Fairlamb collected two thousand three hundred dollars, which money was to be used in bounties, and when the people gathered the fund was largely increased, Mr. Fairlamb promising, if it was needed, to personally contribute one thousand dollars beyond the sum he had already given. The rumored advance of the Confederate soldiers spread over the county like a wave, occasioning the utmost consternation. Plate and valuables were packed ready to be transported to places of safety, while the money in the vaults of the bank at Chester was hastily gathered and carted away by the officers of that institution to Philadelphia, in order that it might be shipped to New York. In Chester, on Monday, June 29th, a meeting of the citizens was held in the town hall, and Council, also assembling, appropriated ten thousand dollars for supplies for the families of volunteers. A call for additional troops was then made, and in an hour eighty men enrolled under Capt. William Frick. In the case of George Baker, he and every man in his employment enlisted in the ranks, compelling the closing of his store during their absence. The next day the company left for Harrisburg, the ranks now swollen to over a hundred men, many in the line whose gray hairs testified that patriotism, not the law's compulsion, had called them to the field. At Upland, on Monday morning, the 29th, a spontaneous assemblage of the people took place, and as rapidly as the names could be taken man after man presented himself, until a company of seventy-two men was obtained. George K. Crozer was elected captain, and on Wednesday it went to Philadelphia, where it was attached to the Forty-fifth Regiment Pennsylvania Militia (First Union League Regiment), Col. Frank Wheeler, and was encamped for a day or two at the Falls of Schuylkill, when the whole regiment was ordered to Shippensburg, soon after to Greencastle, near the Maryland line, and after the retreat of Lee it was stationed at Pottsville, returning to Upland Saturday, Aug. 22, 1863, its term of service being extended beyond that of any Delaware County company of militia. At Rockdale and Lenni, in addition to the men already sent forward, in ten hours a company of fifty was raised, and on Tuesday, July 2nd, hastened to the State capital. Of the number of militia required under President Lincoln's call on Pennsylvania of June 15th from Delaware County all excepting two hundred and fifty-five men had been forwarded by June 28th, and in two days thereafter twice the number necessary to fill the quota was in course of transportation to Harrisburg. Over a thousand of the militia had responded.

The Army of the Potomac in the mean while was advancing to meet the audacious enemy, and Lee learning from his scouts that he would be shortly confronted by that body of men, summoned his scattered forces to concentrate at Gettysburg. So rapidly followed the movements of the armies that scarcely had the militia assembled at Harrisburg when, for three days, the opposing veterans of the North and South contended on the field of Gettysburg in the greatest battle ever fought by man of which we have authentic record, and at the conclusion of that struggle victory perched on the standard of the Union, - "the backbone of the rebellion" had indeed been broken.

The militia companies were distributed as follows Company C (Capt. Broomall), Company F (Capt. Woodcock), Company G (Capt. Bunting), Company A (Capt. Andrews), and Company I (Capt. Platt, -Capt. Yarnall having been appointed lieutenant-colone1, were assigned to the Twenty-ninth Regiment, and were stationed for a time at Huntington; Company G (Capt. Brooke) was assigned to the Twenty-eighth Regiment; Company A (Capt. Frick) and Company F (Capt. Huddleson) became part of the Thirty-seventh, and were at Harrisburg, Carlisle, Shippensburg, and on the Maryland line, while Company F (Capt. Black) was assigned to the Forty-seventh, Col. Wickersham, and was stationed at Williamsport, afterwards at Reading, and subsequently in the mining regions of Schuylkill County, where outbreaks were feared. All the companies from Delaware County returned between the 1st and 5th of August, excepting Capt. Crozer's company, which was kept in service nearly three weeks longer than any of the other military organizations from this locality.

About the middle of the year 1863 conscription was actually enforced in some of the Northern States. In New York it brought on a riot the like of which was never known in that great city. In Delaware County extraordinary exertions had been made, and it was announced by those persons charged with the draft in this district that the quota had been filled; but the authorities at Washington stating that there was an error of one hundred and eleven men, a draft was immediately made (on Wednesday, June 17th). A public meeting was called at Media on Friday, the 19th, when it was resolved to pay three hundred dollars county bounty for recruits, and the quota was filled. The people breathed more freely, but on Oct. 17, 1863, when President Lincoln called for three hundred thousand men for three years or the war, and on Jan. 5, 1864, a draft should be made to fill the remaining quota assigned to every locality in the Northern States, again the people were aroused to the occasion. On Saturday, December 19th, a meeting was held at Media to encourage volunteering and avoid the draft, when it was urged that the commissioners should appropriate a sum to pay sufficient bounties to induce men to volunteer. On Wednesday, Dec. 30, 1863, a county meeting was held in the court-house at Media. John P. Crozer was chosen president and Samuel T. Walker vice-president, when it was decided to ask the commissioners to appropriate three hundred and fifty-two dollars bounty for every recruit, and petitions were prepared, which were given to committees of three in every township to obtain signatures of taxpayers obligating themselves to indemnify the commissioners in so doing, and also asking the Legislature to enact a law to legalize the expenditure. The draft was again avoided.

197th Regiment (Hundred-Days' Service).

197th Regiment

This regiment was recruited under the auspices of the Coal Exchange Association of Philadelphia, and was known as the Third Coal Exchange Regiment. It was organized at Camp Cadwalader, July 22, 1864, with Capt. John Woodcock, of Delaware County, major. Shortly afterwards it was ordered to Mankin's Woods, near Baltimore, and instead of being sent to the front, as was hoped by the regiment (who were mostly veteran soldiers) would be done, it was ordered to Rock Island, Ill., where it was assigned to guarding camp for prisoners of war. The number of prisoners - about nine thousand - was so great, and the duties required of the One Hundred and Ninety-seventh were so constant, that the service bore almost as heavily on the regiment as an active campaign, excepting casualties of battle. Immediately after the arrival of the regiment at Rock Island, Capt. Barton was appointed assistant provost marshal of the island, in which capacity he had immediate charge of the prisoners. The prison covered about forty acres, surrounded by a board fence ten feet high, on the outside of which was a trench about twelve feet wide, filled with water. The guard was mounted on an elevated platform on the outside of the fence, and within were barracks for the accommodation of the inmates. The prisoners of war were provided with good food and comfortable clothing, and, notwithstanding, deaths were frequently arising from melancholiness or homesickness. On Nov. 11, 1864, the One Hundred and Ninety-seventh was mustered out at Philadelphia.

198th Regiment (One Year's Service).

198th Regiment - This regiment was recruited under the auspices of the Union League in Philadelphia in the summer of 1864, its ranks being filled in five weeks. On the morning of the 19th of September it was reviewed before the League House and presented by that association with regimental colors, and immediately proceeded to Petersburg, where it became part of the First Brigade, Fifth Division, of the First Corps of the Army of the Potomac. On the 30th of that month it took part in the battle of Peebles' Farm, and was scarcely formed in position when the enemy opened upon it a heavy artillery and musketry fire, but it held its ground, and finally, in the charge, drove the Confederates from their first line of works. On October 2nd it held its lines under a fierce attack and severe firing from the enemy. On Feb. 5, 1865, at the battle of Hatcher's Run, at three o'clock, the Second Brigade was being hard pressed, when Gen. Sickles ordered the One Hundred and Ninety-eighth to its re1ief, and at the double-quick it charged across an open field and fell upon Mahone's "fighting brigade." The enemy was driven back, but during the night the Confederates succeeded, by massing their troops, in capturing a part of the Union line. At the first alarm the One Hundred and Ninety-eighth delivered a volley and charged with the bayonet. "The struggle for a time was hand to hand, muskets being clubbed and bayonets freely used," The enemy was finally driven back and the works regained. At the battle of Lewis' Farm, on March 29th, the One Hundred and Ninety-eighth encountered the enemy near the old saw-mill, and across a clear field of a thousand yards this regiment and the One Hundred and Eighty-fourth New York, led by Sickles, charged the enemy's works, reserving its fire until near the fortification, when it delivered a close and effectual volley, driving the foe. The regiment's loss was terrific, it afterwards being learned that three of the best Confederate brigades had confronted the Union troops in that engagement. On the 31st it was in action at White Oak Swamp and at Five Forks. On April 1st, after the Union assault had failed, Gen. Chamberlain, who was in command of the division, rode to Maj. Glenn, commanding the One Hundred and Ninety-eighth, and exclaimed,
"Major, can you take those works and hold them?"
The latter, turning to his troops, inquired,
"Boys, wil1 you follow me?"
and he dashed forward, followed by his men. Twice the color-bearer was shot down, but the standard, caught up by another, was carried forward in the charge and planted on the enemy's works. Chamberlain promoted Glenn on the field for this deed, but later in the day the latter was fatally wounded. This was its last battle, the regiment being mustered out of service at Arlington Heights on June 3, 1865.

203rd Regiment (One-Year's Service).

203rd Regiment

This regiment was recruited as sharpshooters for Gen. Birney's division, but the general dying they were treated as ordinary infantry. The regiment was organized Sept. 10, 1864, and on the 27th of the same month they reached the army before Petersburg, and were assigned to the Second Brigade, Second Division, Tenth Corps, the same day. As the action at Chapin's Farm and New Market Road the Two Hundred and Third were employed in picketing Malvern Hill and escorting prisoners. On October 7th it took part in the battle on that day, and repulsed the assaults of the enemy, and was in action on the 27th on the Darlingtown road.

When the Army of the James was reorganized the Two Hundred and Third was part of the Second Brigade, Second Division, Twenty-fourth Corps. On Dec. 13, 1864, it embarked on transports at Fortress Monroe, and accompanied the naval expedition under Admiral Porter for the reduction of Fort Fisher, North Carolina. On Jan. 15, 1865, when the assault on the fort was made, the regiment was in Pennypacker's brigade, which drove the enemy from the palisadings. Here the Two Hundred and Third charged through an opening in the face of two guns, which it captured, and traverse after traverse was carried, and just as the fourth was charged Col. Moore, with his regiment's flag in one hand and his sword in the other, urging on the men, fell dead. From half-past three in the afternoon until late into the night the fight was stubbornly continued until the enemy finally yielded. In this memorable assault the colonel, lieutenant-colonel, one captain, and a lieutenant were killed, two captains and four lieutenants wounded; among the latter was Capt. Benjamin Brooke, of Company B.

Admiral Porter, in his report, states that Fort Fisher was
"really stronger than the Malakoff Tower, which defied so long the combined powers of France and England, and yet it was captured by a handful of men under the fire of the guns of the fleet, and in seven hours after the attack commenced in earnest."
On February 11th the regiment was in the advance on Wilmington, being thrown out as skirmishers, and succeeded in getting possession of the rifle-pits of the enemy in front of his works, but owing to the swampy nature of the ground and the dense undergrowth the line of battle could not advance. Hence the regiment in possession of the pits could not withdraw until night, when, stealthily, a few men at a time crawled away. The works were finally captured by a flank movement, which compelled the enemy to abandon his fortification.

The Two Hundred and Third was active in all the movements in North Carolina until April 26th, when Johnston surrendered, after which it was assigned to duty at Raleigh, where, on June 22, 1865, it was mustered out of service. Capt. Brooke, on June 22, 1865, was promoted lieutenant- colonel of the regiment.

Delaware Countians in the Navy.

- It is unnecessary under this head to refer to the remarkable race of naval captains, - the Porter family, - William David, David D., and Henry Ogden Porter, except to claim for our county these distinguished officers in our nation's history. Even Farragut himself, when appointed, resided in Chester, and was educated here. We have others, however, who "have done the State some service" in that branch of the national forces. The following list of Delaware County's representatives in the navy during the civil war, I know, must be very incomplete, but that much is "at least secured."

Rear-Admiral Frederick Engle was born in Chester in 1799, and was fifteen years of age in 1814, when he entered the navy as a midshipman, sailing with Commodore Porter when he swept the seas of pirates, particularly the West Indies, and in many of the encounters with those enemies to mankind Midshipman Engle highly distinguished himself. During the Mexican war, he had then become a captain, was in command of the steamship "Princeton," at that time the only steam vessel of war afloat in the navies of the world, and in the bombardment of Vera Cruz and the castle of San Juan d'Ulloa, March 22, 1847, a shot from his vessel made the first breach in the walls of the fortress. During the war of the Crimea he was on duty in the Mediterranean and Black Seas, and visited the scene of battle. In May, 1861, he was dispatched to the East India station to relieve Commodore Stribling, whose loyalty was suspected, of command of the flagship "Hartford." Engle journeyed overland from England to Hong Kong, where he took command of the Vessel, which afterwards became famous in our national history under Farragut, and brought it safely home to Philadelphia, in December, 1861. He also brought with him the sloop "John Adams," twenty guns, and steam sloop "Dacota," six guns. He was subsequently in command of the "Wabash." The forty-seven years of active service in the navy began to press heavily on him, and on Dec. 11, 1861, he was placed on the retired list as captain. On July 10, 1862, he was made commodore on the retired list, and in 1867 rear-admiral. He died in Philadelphia, Feb. 12, 1868, aged sixty-nine years.

Commodore Pierce Crosby was born in Chester, Jan. 16, 1824, entering the navy June 5, 1838, as midshipman, and in 1844 he became a passed midshipman, and in that rank served with distinction in the Mexican war. He was promoted to lieutenant in 1853, and held that rank in 1861, when he was employed in Chesapeake Bay and in the Sounds of North Carolina, being complimented by Gen. Butler for his conduct at the capture of Forts Hatteras and Clark. In April, 1862, he was in command of the gunboat "Pinola," and during the night of the 23d that vessel and the "Itasca" led the fleet when Farragut determined to run by Forts Jackson and St. Philip, and broke through the chain-barrier stretched across the Mississippi at these forts. He was present at the capture of New Orleans, April 25, 1862, and when Farragut and his fleet ran the batteries at Vicksburg, June 30th, and returned July 15th, in the same year, Crosby, in command of his vessel, shared in the glory of that daring act. On Sept. 13, 1862, he was promoted to captain, and during the year 1863 -64 as fleet captain did effective service in command of the "Florida" and " Keystone State," North Atlantic Squadron. Oct. 3, 1864, he was promoted commodore, and in April, 1865, in command of the "Metacomet," he was active in the dangerous services preceding the capture of Mobile.

Rear-Admiral Thatcher in his dispatches of April 12th to the Navy Department, said,
"I am much indebted to Commodore Crosby, who has been untiring in freeing the Blakeley River of torpedoes, having succeeded in removing one hundred and fifty, - a service demanding coolness, judgment, and perseverance."
In the year 1872 he was in command of the frigate "Powhattan," and in 1877 was ordered to the navy-yard at League Island, retaining command there until 1881.

Commander De Haven Manley, son of Charles D. Manley, entered the United States navy Sept. 25, 1856, and rose step by step until he reached the rank of commander, April 5, 1874.

Capt. Henry Clay Cochrane was appointed by President Lincoln second lieutenant in the Marine Corps, and passed the examination Aug. 29, 1861, but his age precluded him from being commissioned as such immediately, hence he served as master's mate until March 10, 1863, when, having attained the required age, his appointment as lieutenant was confirmed by the United States Senate. On Oct. 20, 1865, he was promoted first lieutenant. During the war he was in active service under Admirals Goldsborough, Dupont, Farragut, Porter, and Lee in the North and South Atlantic, Gulf, and Mississippi Squadrons, and at the bombardment of Port Royal, S.C., Nov. 7, 1871, was a division officer on the gunboat "Pembina." in 1880, Lieutenant Cochrane was promoted captain, and is now on the flagship "Lancaster" on a three years' cruise in the Mediterranean and visiting European stations.

Drafts were thade in several of the townships in Delaware County, and the last time the wheel was put in motion was April 7, 1865. The men who were drafted in Upper and Lower Chichester responded, and the greater part of them held for service. On April 13th, Secretary Stanton ordered all enlistments and drafting to be discontinued in the United States, hence on Monday, April 25th, the drafted men in Delaware County were ordered to return to their homes.

The war had terminated, and the North was in a tumult of exultation over the success that had at last crowned its efforts, the like of which history furnished no parallel. Hence it was to be expected that the attention of the nation should be centred at noon of April 14, 1865, on those shattered, fire-marked ruins in Charleston harbor, where Maj.-Gen. Anderson - in the presence of the survivors of his garrison, who on that day four years before had evacuated Fort Sumnter - would with imposing ceremonies again unfurl over the broken masses of masonry the old flag, which had been hauled down without dishonor. In Chester, on the afternoon of that day, the Invalid Corps and the soldiers in the United States hospital (now Crozer Theological Seminary), under command of lieutenant Campion, and headed by the Union Brass Band, marched through the streets of the ancient borough, cheering and being cheered. From the town hall, over factories, workshops, stores, and dwellings, the American flag was displayed, while almost every building was draped with the national colors. Early in the evening the populace assembled in Market Square, where addresses were made by John M. Broomall and Rev. Messrs. George and Meredith, at the conclusion of which Professor Jackson gave a beautiful exhibition of fire-works. At nine o'clock a general illumination of the town took place, and the streets were crowded with people, on foot and in carriages, moving from point to point to view the display.

While the inhabitants of many of the surrounding townships in Delaware County had come to Chester to rejoice over the long-hoped-for and glorious conclusion of the civil war, at half-past nine o'clock that night, at Ford's Theatre, in Washington, during a pause in the play of "Our American Cousin," the report of a pistol was heard, and a deed had been wrought which, in a few short hours, should change the national rejoicing into public mourning and misgivings. Abraham Lincoln had been assassinated.

The telegraphic operator in the town heard the alarming intelligence as it flashed over the wires to the press of the great cities, but the injunction of silence (of war time) kept him mute, and it was not until six o'clock the following morning (Saturday) that the news of the dreadful deed reached Chester. All business ceased, the industrial establishments suspended operation, and no business place was opened save that of the news agents, which was filled with people, jostling each other in their anxiety to secure the morning papers giving the particulars of the tragedy. By eight o'clock the death of the President was confirmed, and the proprietors of dry-goods stores were compelled to open their places of business that the people might replace the tricolored hanging of the preceding day with sombre black. By ten o'clock all the buildings were draped in mourning. The like scene was enacted in every town and village in the county, for the people were stricken with grief for the great dead and with apprehension for the future. On Wednesday, when the funeral of the murdered President was in progress at Washington, all business was suspended and every mill in the county closed on that day, while at the same hour in all the sanctuaries services were held, and the bells of the churches were tolled in every steeple. At Chester the revenue cutter "William H. Seward," lying off the town, fired minute-guns. At Media the court-room was crowded, and religious services were held therein. The deep feeling of uncertainty and grief prevailing at that time will never be forgotten by those who were of sufficient age to recall that period in our history.

After the surrender of the Confederate armies the troops were mustered out, and the soldiers of Delaware County returned to their homes to resume the peaceful routine of life. This period had been looked forward to with apprehension, but the result showed one of the most remarkable features of that remarkable period, - the quiet absorption of a great army into the ranks of the people with hardly a ripple in the social realm.



List of West Point Graduates.

- Since the establishment of West Point the following persons appointed from Delaware County have graduated from that institution

Francis Lee, Chester, admitted Sept. 2, 1818; graduated second lieutenant, Twentieth Infantry, July 1, 1822.

William H. Price, Chester, admitted July 1, 1830; brevet second lieutenant, First Infantry, July, 1834.

Henry M. Black, graduated 1847; attached to Fourth Infantry, with rank of brevet second lieutenant.

Officers of United States Navy.

- Delaware County has furnished a number of officers to the United States naval service besides those already mentioned, and the noted Porter family, to whom reference will be made elsewhere. On Oct. 28, 1844, lieutenant Ferdinand Piper, United States navy, a native of Chester, was lost in the bay of Pensacola. He had left the ship "Falmouth" that morning in a cutter, designing to bring supplies to the vessel. When about midway to the landing a sudden flaw of wind struck the boat, and before sail could be shortened she was overturned. All the men were encouraged by the good conduct and presence of mind of lieutenant Piper, and were clinging to the overturned boat, when a heavy sea washed Piper, Professor William S. Fox, and six of the seamen away and they were lost. The schooner "Otter" rescued the survivors that evening.

Midshipman James Anderson, son of Dr. Samuel Anderson, a promising officer of the navy, died in 1840 while on a visit to his father, then residing at Rockdale.

lieutenant Samuel Edwards, United States Navy, who had charge of the battery which made the first breach in the walls at Vera Cruz in the Mexican war, died March 23, 1861. He was a nephew of Hon. Samuel Edwards, of Chester, and his parents having died while he was a child he was reared by his uncle, who took just pride in the young man's rapid promotion. He died just at the eve of the war of 1861.

Edward Fayssoux Leiper, son of John C. Leiper, appointed to the naval school at Annapolis since the war, is the only person from Delaware County who has graduated there since Commander Manley, twenty years ago. He is now in temporary command of the "Arago" on South Atlantic coast survey service.



* The One Hundred and Seventy-fifth Regiment was composed of drafted men for nine months' service, and was part of Gen. Spenola's brigade; was in service in North Carolina, and subsequently acted with the Army of the Potomac during Lee's advance into Pennsylvania. It was mustered out of service at Philadelphia, April 7, 1863.

** In 1867, Thomas Chambers contributed to the Delaware County Republican a series of noticeably well-written papers, entitled Memoirs of Life and Death in Rebel Prisons," in which the incidents happening therein, as he saw them, are graphically pictured.
