One Hundred and Ninety-fourth Regiment

194th PA Regimental History

This regiment was recruited in the counties of Schuylkill, Berks, Luzerne, Lycoming, Montour, Dauphin, Cambria, Bedford, and York, and was organized at Camp Curtin, on the 22nd of July 1864, with the following field officers: James Nagle, Colonel; Richard McMichael, Lieutenant Colonel; Oscar D. Jenkins, Major. On the day of its organization, it moved for Baltimore, and upon its arrival, went into camp at Mankin's Woods. About the 1st of September, the regiment removed to Camp Carroll, a mile southwest of the city, on the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Company K, which had been originally recruited for a cavalry company, soon after its arrival at Baltimore, was detached from the regiment, and stationed at the barracks, a half-mile northwest of the Washington Monument. A few weeks later, this company was sent to the eastern shore of Maryland, where it remained, engaged in provost duty, until the close of its service. Companies C, G, H, and I, and parts of companies D, E, and F, were stationed at various points in the city for provost duty. Details from the remaining companies, to serve as escorts and guards to rebel prisoners on their way through the city to places of confinement, and for recruits destined for the front, were being constantly made, as long as the regiment remained in service. At the expiration of its term, the scattered detachments were called in, and it proceeded to Harrisburg, where, on the 6th of November, it was mustered out.
