Brief History

This Regiment was organized in July 1861 at Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  The men were mustered in 27 July 1861.  The Regiment was discharged 16 June 1864.

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
