Notes: Organized at Harrisburg, PA, in September 1861, having been recruited in the central part of the State. Proceeding to Annapolis it was brigaded with General Steven's command, and in October sailed with General Sherman's (T. W.) expedition to Hilton Head, SC. The regiment remained in this department several months, during which time it had a varied experience in campaigning and fighting; at Pocotaligo, Captain Charles H. Parker was killed while bravely leading a forlorn hope across the string pieces of an abandoned bridge. In July, 1862, the Fiftieth joined the Ninth Corps at Fort Monroe, then on its way to reinforce Pope. It was actively engaged in the battles of Manassas and Chantilly, in which the regiment lost 19 killed, 119 wounded, and 15 missing; total 153. After more hard fighting, at Antietam, it was transferred with the Corps to the West, where it participated in the Siege of Vicksburg, it being then in Potter's (2nd) Division. In the fighting before Jackson, MS, the regiment lost its Lieutenant Colonel, Thomas S. Brenholz, who was mortally wounded there. The Fiftieth shared the provisions and dangers of the campaign at Knoxville, TN, and then returned to Virginia in the spring of 1864, it having reenlisted in the meanwhile and received its veteran furlough. It fought under Grant from the Rapidan to Appomattox, and was mustered out July 30, 1865. Its casualties at Spotsylvania were 23 killed, 109 wounded, and 113 captured or missing. At the dedication of the Gettysburg monument, July 4, 1865, the Fiftieth was present by order of the War Department as a representative of the army.
