CHAPTER XII.
CLEARFIELD’S MILITARY HISTORY.
 

     WHEN, in 1861, the iron lips of Moultrie’s gun spelled upon our sky in letters red as blood, “ civil war,” the sons of Clearfield, breathing a spirit of patriotism as pure as the atmosphere of the hills around them, rushed to the Nation’s capital to uphold the honor of the flag, and preserve intact the

republic.  It was not a question with them what battles were to be fought, what graves filled, or what altars shivered;  but donning the blue, vowed, no matter what the cost, that the serpent of secession should find an eternal grave, and gasp its last amid shrieking shell and hissing bullet.


     The “ mystic cord of memory stretching from every battle-field and patriot grave ” brings before us, with meteoric brillancy, the important part performed by Clearfield county in that great struggle. Loyal citizens only knew that men were needed, and they hastened to respond ; they exchanged the rippling music of the mountain stream for the thunder of deep mouthed cannon and the deafening musketry volley ; they went out from the roof-tree of home to camp on southern soil, and stand guard in the pitiless night beneath sorrowing stars ; they went out to be shot to death, if need be ; to be fired at by a concealed foe ; to struggle in delirium in hospital, or starve or shiver in loathsome pens, with stones for pillows and vermin for companions, that the flag might be preserved unsullied. This was the spirit that controlled the volunteers of Clearfield as they sprang into the arena where Titans struggled.

     Remembering the beautiful sentiments of Colonel Stuart Taylor, it may well be asked: Fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters of Clearfield county, can you look up to see the morning furrow all the orient into gold without thinking what sacred graves it gilds ? Or, can you watch the slow declining day without wishing it could be always sunlight on the silent mounds of
Clearfield’s patriot dead ? Do you ever see spring time daisy, or purple violet, unless you think what darling dust it is which feeds the wild flowers of the Wilderness, of Malvern Hill, of Gettysburg, of the crimsoned banks of the Chickahominy, and other fields where loved and lost are sleeping?
 

DAYS OF THE MILITIA.


     The martial spirit of Clearfield county does not date from the outbreak of the great rebellion; it existed in the days when the sturdy woodsmen felled the forest, that prosperous towns might spring up, agricultural interests be enlarged, and mechanism add to the wealth of its progressive inhabitants. It came with the pioneers, and slumbered until the grand old days of “ general training ” (to use a down-east phrase) dawned-the days when the farmer, the mechanic, and the woodsman abandoned toil, and hied away to the “ muster ” for a season of jollification, to eat Yankee gingerbread and drink new cider, and boast of the prowess of the American eagle. In 1840, under State law, there was organized a volunteer battalion, commanded by George R., afterward Judge Barrett, who had been commissioned major. So much interest was manifested, and so successful was the first year of its existence, that the commencement of the second year found the command with a sufficient complement of men to form a regiment. There were six companies, of about sixty men each. Upon the formation of the regimental

organization, Major Barrett was elected colonel, and E. W. Wise, major.  They had "muster" and "review" days, and these were also holidays with citizens, who admired the music of the fife, the beat of the drum, and the tread of uniformed men.  But it was not a season of recreation to the militia.  State encampments were attended annually at various places, and as there were no railroads at that time, it frequently became necessary to march forty or fifty miles to camp - rivaling some of the historic marches of the Army of the Potomac, with the exception of the bitter infantry fight, and occasionally a hurried retreat. This regiment drilled on the flats opposite where Judge Barrett now resides. The organization remained in existence six or seven years. There also existed a section of State militia, under the colonelship of William Bigler, who was, in 1851, elected governor of the State.

     Another organization was the “Guards,” of which Hon. William A. Wallace, in 1854, was captain. They were well uniformed and had parade days. Captain Wallace, laying aside the epaulettes, transferred his services to the political host, and through force of talent, adaptability, and knowledge of national affairs, became one of the foremost men in the State, honored with a seat in the United States Senate.

     Here, too, it was that Hon. John Patton acquired his military title of “ General” of the militia in his county.

 

CLEARFIELD IN THE CIVIL WAR.


     The history of the volunteers of Clearfield county from the first blaze of hostile cannon, until secession was buried at Appomattox by the surrender of Lee’s sword, forms one of the most brilliant chapters of the Commonwealth’s history. To faintly picture their services it will be necessary to refer to the records of the regiments to which they were attached, which forms an unbroken chain of testimony to demonstrate the patriotism of Clearfield’s soldiery. It is not to keep alive sectional animosity that the historian recites the acts of a victorious host. Would the Athenians meeting in the Angora listen to a propositon that no man should hereafter speak of Marathon ? Would Romans teach nothing but philosophy, and refuse to tell the rising generation how Scipio conquered Hannibal, or Horatius held the bridge ? It was not Marathon, but the memory of Marathon, which fixed the home of civilization in Europe instead of in Asia. It was not the surrender at Appomattox that binds in iron bands the States of this Union, but it is the memory of its cost kept alive in the hearts of the people which gave to civilization its grandest onward step, and which some future Guizot, in tracing the pathway of human advancement, will declare secured for the world the fullest enlargement of human liberty. And as other generations read the pages recording the
services of the sons of Clearfield, from 1861 to 1865, it will inspire them to preserve sacred the patriotic idea of “ country first, the citizen afterward.”

Thirty-Fourth Regiment - Fifth Reserves


     Company C of this regiment was ordered to Camp Curtin, and organized into a regiment June 20, 1861. Governor Curtin, upon receiving a telegram from Lieutenant-General Scott for troops, sent the Fifth Reserves, together with the Bucktails, to the relief of Colonel Lew Wallace, at Cumberland. On July 13th they were ordered to Bridge z I, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which had been burned by the rebels. From that point they moved to New Creek, where, under Colonel Kane, they aided in dispersing the rebels. July 22, they were sent to Piedmont to protect the Unionists, who were subjected to cruel treatment at the hands of Southern sympathizers. It was soon after the Bull Run battle, which occurred on Sunday, July 21, that they were ordered to Washington, and from the National Capital they were dispatched to Harrisburg, and bivouacked in the vicinity of Camp Curtin. The enemy at this time had closed in around Washington, and fears were entertained that Maryland would be invaded and the soil of Pennsylvania be made a battleground.

     It was on the 8th of August, that they proceeded to Washington, and went into camp at Tennallytown. On the 14th of September they escorted Governor Curtin to camp, where, with President Lincoln, General McClellan, and others, the famous “ war governor” reviewed the division. On the 19th of October, a reconnaissance was made to the vicinity of Dranesville, and on December 20th, the regiment was ordered there, but did not arrive in time to take part in the handsome victory achieved by the Third Brigade.

     The 9th of April, 1862, found the Thirty-fourth occupying the barracks deserted by the rebels at Manassas. May 7 Colonel Simons reported at Falmouth, and on the 25th of that month was ordered across the Rappahanneck. June 9 the regiment embarked for the Peninsula, moved to White House, thence to Dispatch Station, and from there to Mechanicsville, the right
wing of McClellan’s army, five miles from Richmond.

     Here the Reserves inaugurated that memorable struggle of the Peninsula, known as the “ Seven Days’ Battle.” It had been arranged between Generals Longstreet and Jackson, in the absence of General Lee, to attack Mechanicsville (which means the battle of Beaver Dam Creek or Ellerson’s Mills) on the 26th day of June. Jackson commenced the march of his troops from Mount Meridian, in the vicinity of Port Republic battle-field, on the 18th of June, with the intention of flanking the right wing of McClellan’s army, but he was delayed by cavalry and felled timber, and consequently did not arrive at the time fixed upon for a general advance upon the Federal lines. The order had gone forth, and with the expectation that Jackson would arrive to take part, the battle commenced. When it opened, and the fact was heralded at Confederate headquarters that Jackson had been delayed one day, Lee found that

it was necessary to fight the battle at Beaver Dam Creek, which proved so disastrous to the Confederates who faced the Pennsylvanians on that memorable day.


     The Position. - The position selected was a strong, defensive one. The banks of the valley were steep, and forces advancing on the adjacent plains presented their flanks, as well as their front, to the fire of both infantry and artillery, safely posted behind entrenchments. The stream was over waist deep -and bordered by swamps. Its passage was difficult for infantry at all points, and impracticable for artillery, except at the bridge crossing at Ellerson’s Mills, and at the one above, near Mechanicsville.

     To quote from General Fitz John Porter: “ Early in the day I visited General Reynolds, near the head of the creek, and had the best reasons, not only to be contented, but thoroughly gratified with the admirable arrangements of this accomplished officer, and to be encouraged by the cheerful confidence of himself and his able and gallant assistants, Seymour on his left, at Ellerson’s Mills, and Simmons and Roy Stone in his front. Each of these officers commanded a portion of the Pennsylvania Reserves-all under the command of the brave and able veteran, McCall. These troops were about to engage in their first battle, and bore themselves then, as they did on trying occasions immediately following, with the cheerful spirit of the volunteer, and the firmness of the veteran soldier-examples inspiring emulation in these trying ‘ Seven Days’ Battles.’

     “ About two o’clock P. M. on the z6th, the boom of a single cannon in the direction of Mechanicsville resounded through our camps. This was the signal which had been agreed upon to announce the fact that the enemy were crossing the Chickahominy. The curtain rose; the stage was prepared for the first scene of the tragedy. Tents were struck, wagons packed and sent to the rear to cross to the right bank of the Chickahominy. The divisions were promptly formed and took the positions assigned them. General McCall assumed command at Beaver Dam Creek; Meade joined him, taking position behind Seymour ; Martindale and Griffin, of .Morrell’s Division, went respectively to the right and rear of Reynolds; Butterfield was directed to support General
Cooke’s, and subsequently Martindale’s right, while Sykes was held ready to move when needed. Reynolds and Seymour prepared for action, and concealed their men.

     “About three o’clock the enemy, under Longstreet, D. H. and A. P. Hill, in large bodies commenced rapidly to cross the Chickahominy, almost simultaneously at Mechanicsville, Meadow Bridge, and above, and pushed down the left bank, along the roads leading to Beaver Dam Creek. The outposts, watching the access to the crossings, fell back, after slight resistance, to their already designated position on the east bank of Beaver Darn Creek, destroying the bridges as they retired.

(15)

HISTORY OF CLEARFIELD COUNTY.


     "After passing Mechanicsville the attacking forces were divided, a portion taking the road to Ellerson's Mill, while the larger body directed their march into the valley of Beaver Dam Creek, upon the road covered by Reynolds.  This force moved on with animation and confidence, as if going to parade, or engaging in a sham battle.  Suddenly, when half-way down the bank of the valley, our men opened upon it rapid volleys of artillery and infantry, which strewed the road and hillside with hundreds of dead and wounded, and drove the main body of the survivors back in rapid flight to and beyond Mechanicsville.  So rapid was the fire upon the enemy's huddles masses, clambering back up the hill, that some of Reynold's ammunition was exhausted, and two regiments were relieved by the Fourth Michigan and Fourteenth New York of Griffin's Brigade.  On the extreme right a small force of the enemy secured a foothold, on the east bank, but it did no harm, and retired under cover of darkness.


     “The forces which were directed against Seymour at Ellerson’s Mills made little progress. Seymour’s direct and Reynolds’s flank fire soon arrested them and drove them to shelter, suffering even more disastrously than those who had attacked Reynolds. Late in the afternoon, greatly strengthened, they renewed the attack with spirit and energy, some reaching the borders of the stream, but only to be repulsed with terrible slaughter, which warned them not to attempt a renewal of the fight. Little depressions in the ground shielded many from our fire, until, when night came on, they all fell back beyond the
range of our guns. Night put an end to the contest.

     “ The Confederates suffered severely. All night the moans of the dying and the shrieks of the wounded reached our ears. Our loss was only about 250 of the 5,000 engaged, while that of the Confederates was nearly 2,000 out of some 10,000 attacking.”

     Thus reports the commanding general on the left bank of the Chickahominy. From official reports it is learned that the Union forces engaged consisted of eleven regiments and six batteries; Confederate forces engaged, twenty-one regiments, eight batteries. Other reports differ with General Porter as to the loss, and put the total Union loss at Mechanicsville 361, but little more than that of the Forty-fourth Georgia alone (335). The Confederate loss, exclusive of Field’s and Anderson’s brigades, and of the batteries, is reported at 1,589, although William Swinton, on the authority of General Longstreet, puts the aggregate Confederate loss at between three and four thousand.

     It is evident, from Confederate accounts, that they were deceived as to the ground, and marched cooly into the jaws of death. This is evidenced from the published articles of Generals Hill and Longstreet. In General D. H. Hill’s account a pathetic scene is described. The Forty-fourth Georgia, emerging from the blaze of the Pennsylvanian’s fire, attempted to reform in the rear

without officers.  "It was pitiable to see the skeleton line," says one writer.  An officer rode up and exclaimed, "Good heavens!  Is this all of the Forty-fourth Georgia?"


     The writer of this sketch occupied a position upon a Union earthwork on the Richmond side of the river, and with field-glass in hand watched Confederate troops up the valley moving down to the Mechanicsville bridge, and crossing the stream to participate in the fiery carnival of death. Often the remark was made, “Fear not. The Pennsylvanians are enough for them.” It more than proved true. No prouder record is emblazoned on the banner of volunteer soldiers than that written on the colors of the Reserves in letters of blood, “ Beaver Dam Creek ;” and, as General Fitz John Porter expressed it, “ troops about to engage in their first battle,” it added brilliancy to the patriotism of the Keystone State, and taught the enemy that when they measured bayonets with the Reserves they could count on no idle power in the conflict.

     All along the crimsoned pathway of the Potomac Army, from Mechanicsville to the James River, in the memorable seven days’ battles under McClellan, the Thirty-fourth, as well as the entire Reserves, exhibited the same courage as at Beaver Dam Creek. The laurels they won in that inaugural battle of the Peninsula remained green and untarnished until the famous retreat brought them underneath the cover of the Federal gunboats.

     Not a single soldier has forgotten the midnight bombardment, when the Confederate batteries on the south side of the James River sent their solid shot and shell into the Federal shipping and the army camps; green in memory will remain the stirring incidents of the seven days when the fate of the nation hung upon the safety of that grand old Army of the Potomac.

     Remaining for a time where the hot sun beating upon the sandy plain reminded the volunteer that he was encamped in the hottest portion of Virginia, there came intelligence that Washington was in danger ; that the Confederates might march northward. An order was issued to withdraw the army to Acquia Creek, against the judgment of General McClellan, who believed that such a move would prove disastrous; that the army was in excellent discipline and condition, holding a debouche on both banks of the James River, and free to act in any direction; that the distance to Richmond was but twenty-five miles, and that a battle would not be likely to occur until within ten miles of that city ; that the line of transportation would be short, with gunboats to aid in forwarding supplies to the army, while Acquia Creek was seventy-five miles from Richmond with land transportation all the way. But the order was imperative, and the Thirty-fourth returned in front of Washington, participating in the Second Bull Run. They continued to follow the fortunes of the army, taking part in the battle of Antietam, and the engagement at Fredericksburg.

     In February, 1863, they were ordered to Washington, where they en-

camped at Miner's Hill, and afterwards were assigned to duty in Washington.  They took part in the battle of Gettysburg, and their after service was as follows:  Did guard duty along the Orange and Alexandria railroad, and at Alexandria acted as train guard.  In February, 1864, they had a skirmish with guerillas near Brentzville, were Major Larimer was killed.  During the winter and spring of 1864 the regiment was recruited, and Captain Smith was promoted to major.  May 4, under Grant, they crossed the Rapidan and engaged in the Wilderness fight.  In the battle near Fredericksburg and Orange Pike, Lieutenant-Colonel Dare, of the regiment, was mortally wounded and died.  Major Smith suceeded him, and soon after was commissioned lieutenant-colonel for gallant conduct.  The regiment participated in the engagements which followed, until May 31, 1864, when their terms of service expired, and leaving the banks of the Tolopotomy on the 11th of June, were mustered out at Harrisburg.

FORTY-SECOND-BUCKTAIL REGIMENT.


     This regiment became a noted one in the Army of the Potomac ; in the camps, and at the various headquarters, were frequently seen knots of sunburned veterans discussing the exploits of the “ Pennsylvania Bucktails,” as they were frequently called, and the name soon became a household word. It was on the 13th of April, 1861, that Thomas L. Kane, brother of Dr. Kane, the famous Arctic explorer, was given permission by Governor Curtin to raise a company of mounted riflemen in Forest, McKean, and Elk counties. They

began to assemble at rendezvous April 17, and after deliberation, in accordance with the wishes of a large majority, the organization was changed from cavalry to infantry. The men, accustomed to climbing the mountains of Northern Pennsylvania in their search for game, very wisely concluded that they could render the government most effective service by hunting Confederates in the thickets of Virginia. That this conclusion was no error of judgment, was subsequently demonstrated. The author of this sketch remembers the capture of an Alabamian on the Rappahannock-an educated man, strong in debate, and quick to perceive a point. A conversation was in progress relative to the merits of troops from different States, when the Alabamian remarked : “We dread to meet the New Yorkers in the open field, but if we can get them in the woods we are happy; of all the men for fighting in the forest, Pennsylvania and Michigan take the lead ; they are tigers let loose.” This is explained upon the theory that New York troops were made up largely of young mechanics, while those from Pennsylvania and Michigan were accustomed to the woods, and perfectly at home when advancing upon an enemy under cover of trees and underbrush.


     On the 24th of April one hundred men had assembled at a rafting-place on the Sinnamahoning, where they constructed transports. The only uniform was a red shirt, black pants, and a bucktail in the cap. Two days later, three hundred and fifteen strong, they embarked on three rafts, and with a green hickory-pole, surmounted by a bucktail, for a flag-staff, the stars and stripes flying, and fife and drum rousing the echoes of the mountain sides, onward down the West Branch sailed the patriotic flotilla. Arriving at Harrisburg they saluted the city with a volley, which, had it been fired in 1864 instead of 1861, would have fairly panic-struck the inhabitants. People flocked to take a look at the brave men who were about to meet the enemy upon the soil of the Old Dominion, and on all sides the “ sturdy men from the mountains ” were applauded.

     Authority had been given to muster them in as the Seventeenth (three months) Regiment. An organization was commenced with Thomas L. Kane as colonel, but as a Seventeenth Regiment had been mustered in at Philadelphia, the organization was not consummated, and Colonel Kane, declining a commission, was mustered in as a private May 13.

Other companies were recruited-one in Warren county, one in Chester, one in Perry, one in Clearfield, one in Carbon, and two in Tioga, and the material had been assembled for a first-class regiment. On the 13th day of June a regimental election was held, which resulted in the selection of Thomas L. Kane as colonel, but, with that patriotism which always marks the career of an unselfish soldier, he resigned, that Lieutenant-Colonel Biddle, who had served in Mexico, might be placed in command. The name of the organization was changed from the “ Rifle Regiment ” to “ Kane Rifle Regiment of Pennsylva-

nia Reserve Corps,” and started into service as Forty-second of the line, and although it was universally known as the “ Bucktail Regiment.”

     June 21, with the Fifth, Colonel Simmons, and Barr’s Battery, the Forty-second was ordered to the support of Colonel Wallace, at Cumberland, Md., but before reaching that place Colonel Wallace, in accordance with order, had moved to Martinsburg.

     July 12, Lieutenant-Colonel Kane, with a scouting party of sixty men, crossed into Virginia, and at New Creek village was surrounded by McDonald’s cavalry. A stubborn engagement took place, in which the Confederates were worsted and driven. Colonel Biddle, with his command, moved to the relief of Kane, and dispatched the latter with two hundred men to follow the enemy. He came upon them at Ridgeville, nine miles from New Creek, and after a skirmish, took possession. Colonel Riddle arrived, and the next morning the force fell back to New Creek and Piedmont, which position they held until July 27, when ordered to Harrisburg, where they were reviewed by Governor Curtin August 1. On the 6th of August they were ordered to report to General Banks, at Harper’s Ferry. October 1, the command moved to Tennallytown and joined the Reserves.  December 12, Colonel Biddle resigned to go to Congress, having been elected from Philadelphia.

     We are now approaching a period when the Army of the Potomac, with the stinging defeat of Bull Run still fresh in memory, was about to experience its first joy-a victory achieved by Pennsylvania troops-a victory that thrilled the nation, not because of magnitude, but because of its moral effect, at a time when the enemies of the Republic were flushed with hope of success. December 20, the Forty-second, under Lieutenant-Colonel Kane, marched with Orr’s Brigade to Dranesville, where the enemy was in force. It was in this early fight that the name “ Bucktails” was written in letters of blood. It was here that Colonel Kane was shot in the face, the ball crashing through the roof of his mouth, inflicting a painful wound. Bandaging his face, he continued to advance with his men, and amid the smoke of the contest, fought with Spartan determination. The enemy fled, leaving its dead and wounded upon the field, and one piece of artillery that would have been taken but for the positive order
of the general in command. It was, nevertheless, a proud victory for the troops engaged.

     On the 10th of March, 1862, the campaign opened, and the Bucktails moved to Alexandria. The Reserves were then assigned to the First Corps, and the Bucktails ordered to Falmouth. The middle of May finds them within six miles of Hanover Court-house. It was at this time that Colonel Kane, with four companies, was ordered to join Fremont. In the pursuit of Jackson
up the Shenandoah valley, the Bucktails were in the extreme advance. Colonel Kane with his scouts-one hundred men-had a stubborn fight with General Ashby at Harrisonburg; the latter had with him Stuart’s brigade.

Bravely the Bucktails held their ground, waiting reinforcements, but in this they were disappointed.  In the fight Colonel Kane was wounded and taken prisoner.  Captain Taylor, admiring the brave commander, dashed through the fire and smoke to resue him, and was also captured.  The Confederates were so strongly impressed by such an exhibition of self-sacrifice and bravery, that they offered to parole him, but he and Colonel Kane refused.  The loss of the Bucktails in killed, wounded, and prisoners was fifty-two - half the number engaged.


     The other six companies - four hundred strong - went into camp at Dispatch Station. June 13th they participated in a skirmish with Stuart’s Cavalry at White House, the Federal base of supplies. June 27th they were ordered to Gaines’s Mills, and participated in that memorable engagement, pronounced by military men as one of the most desperate conflicts of the first two years of the rebellion. On the evening of the 28th they commenced the march through White Oak Swamp, and on the night of the 29th performed picket duty on the Richmond road leading to Charles City, and took part in the battle of Charles City Cross Roads fought June 30th.

     Arriving at Harrison’s Landing, they found two grand divisions of the army separated by a broad and deep tidal stream, and upon the men in the Bucktails who had served an aprenticeship in the lumber regions of northern Pennsylvania, was imposed the work of spanning the stream with a structure that would permit the passage of troops and trains. There were five hundred feet to be bridged, with the water in some places ten feet deep. It was required that the work be completed in two days. The only material at hand was the growing timber on the banks. At five P. M. the work was commenced, and at sunrise the next morning the bridge was ready for artillery to cross.


     From the Peninsula the regiment proceeded to Warrenton and participated in the second battle of Bull Run.

     Returning to the four companies remaining with Fremont’s Corps (now Sigel’s), after the battle of Cross Keys, we find them engaged at Cedar Mountain.  On the 19th of August they encamped at Brandy Station, on the Orange and Alexandria railroad, where Lieutenant-Colonel Kane joined them, he having been held a prisoner of war since the fight at Harrisonburg. August 22 they marched back to Catlett’s Station. Then occurred another of General J. E. B. Stuart’s wild rides for the purpose of capturing General Pope and his headquarters train. Colonel Kane, with a few men, met some of Stuart’s horsemen at Cedar Run bridge, and with a single volley drove them in confusion. Colonel Kane’s attempt to check the panic and secure an orderly retreat at Cub’s Run (second Bull Run) will live imperishable in the military history of this country.

     September 7 was a red letter day for the Bucktails. Colonel Kane was

commissioned brigadier-general, and the four companies joined the six.  Cheers rent the air, and the reunion was a glad one.  again they had come together, and clasping hands vowed to do or die in behalf of the cause of the imperiled nation.  Bitter contests were before them, but they faltered not.  Moving into Maryland they took part in the battle of South Mountain September 14, and the next day at 3 p.m. reached the battle field of Antietam.  In the two days the regiment lost in killed and wounded one hundred and ten officers and men.  The next fight was at Fredericksburg.  December 12 the Reserves crossed to the right bank of the Rappahannock.


     February 6, 1863, they were ordered to the defenses of Washington, and established camp at Fairfax; June 25, were ordered to join the Fifth Corps, then marching into Pennsylvania, and were participants in the battle of Gettysburg. The remaining months of 1863 they were constantly on the skirmish line, and at the close of the campaign went into winter quarters at Bristow Station, where they remained until the last of April, 1864; April 29, broke camp and reached Culpepper on the 30th ; May 4, crossed the Rapidan and took part in the battle of the Wilderness. They distinguished themselves at Spottsylvania ; at Mountain Run they made two assaults on the enemy’s works, but they were unsuccessful. May 11, occurred the assault by the entire army. On the 12th the Bucktails were employed picking off Confederate artillery men.

     The last fight of the Bucktails was on the Mechanicsville road, May 30, their term of office expiring that day. The regiment was mustered out at Harrisburg June 11, 1864.

     On the Fourth of July, 1866, the bunting which floated over the rafts in 1861, and which they had carried in their campaigns amid the blaze of artillery and the leaden storm of infantry, was borne in procession in Philadelphia by the veterans, and delivered to the governor of the State amid the cheers of assembled thousands.

     Company K of this regiment was recruited at Curwensville, with Edward A. Irvin, captain.

THE FIFTY-FIRST REGIMENT.


     The portion of this regiment that was recruited in Clearfield county was exceedingly small, only comprising a contingent of sixteen men, enlisted by Peter A. Gaulin, who afterward was promoted to captain of Company G.  A major portion of these were enlisted in October, 1861, for the regular three years service, but some slight accessions were made in 1864.

The greater part of the regiment was raised in the counties of Montgomery, Union, Snyder, Centre, and Northampton. The field officers were John F. Hartranft, colonel ; Thomas S. Bell, lieutenant-colonel ; Edwin Schall, major.

     On the 6th day of January, 1862, the regiment embarked for Roanoke Island, where they participated in the operations at that point, and moved next in the expedition to Newbern. Afterwards they were engaged at Cedar Mountain and the second battle at Bull Run. At Antietam they were under a terrible fire and made a gallant record in that battle. From Antietam it went
before Fredericksburg, and subsequently was ordered to Fortress Monroe. It then followed the fortunes and shared the hardships and privations of the Ninth Army Corps, and participated in the Knoxville campaign. During the spring campaign it pushed forward to the N----- River where they again met the enemy. From this time Colonel Hartranft was in command as brigadier-general.

     Next a succession of movements brought them to Cold Harbor, where a heavy loss was sustained. Its next engagement was at Petersburg, Va. Here it formed a part of the storming column that followed the explosion of the mine, but was ordered back, there being no necessity for so strong a force. The regiment then participated in the succession of battles at Poplar Springs Church, Reams’s Station, Hatcher’s Run, and in the final attack which resulted in the evacuation of Richmond. On the 27th day of July, 1865, it was mustered out of service at Alexandria, Va.

     Those of the regiment from Clearfield county were recruited mainly from the northern part. The muster-roll of that part of Company G shows the name, rank, date of muster, and disposition of each man.

     Captain. -Peter A. Gaulin, October 17, 1861; promoted from second to first lieutenant February 12, 1862, to captain January 11, 1863 ; resigned March 16, 1864.

FIFTY-NINTH REGIMENT-SECOND CAVALRY.
 

     The proportion of this regiment that was recruited in Clearfield county was exceedingly small, less than fifty men, and they were attached to Company F.  These men were recruited in the eastern part of the county by Thomas G. Snyder, who was made first lieutenant, and who died of wounds received at Occoquan, Va., on December 28th, 1862. The regiment was raised in the fall of 1861, in various sections of the State, and rendezvoused at Camp Patterson, six miles from Philadelphia. The field officers were as follows: Richard Price Butler, colonel ; Joseph P. Brinton, lieutenant-colonel ; Charles F. Taggart and J. Archambault, majors. The regiment was well disciplined, many of its officers having acquired some experience in the three months service. The colonel had served in Mexico, and Major Archambault was one of Napoleon’s

veterans.  At Baltimore the regiment was reviewed by General Dix.  At Cloud's Mills it was assigned to the brigade commanded by General Cooke, First Reserve Army Corps, General Sturgis, but in August it was transferred to General Buford's brigade.  Its first engagement too place near Culpepper, and afterward participated in the Bull Run fight, were it lost heavily.  On September 10, Buford was appointed to McClellan's staff and Colonel Price succeeded to the command of the brigade.  On October 1 the regiment was transferred to General Bayard's command, and assigned to the First Brigade.  In November they engaged the enemy and were compelled to retire.  They were constantly scouting until late in December, when, on the 28th, it fell into an ambuscade at Occoquan and suffered a great loss.  Lieutenant Thomas G. Snyder was mortally wounded and captured here.  He died in the enemy's hands. In killed, wounded, and misssing it lost over one hundred men. The
regiment wintered at Accotink.

     In April, 1863, at Fairfax Court-House, it was assigned to the Second Brigade of General Stahel’s Division. In June it participated in the Gettysburg campaign, conducted twenty-five hundred prisoners to Westminster, and on the 7th rejoined the army at Middletown. It started in pursuit of Lee’s army and went as far as Warrenton, and afterward did guard duty at Meade’s
headquarters. It was then assigned to the Second Brigade. Its subsequent history is told by the engagement at Beverly’s Ford, on the heights around Rappahannock Station, the raid on Luray, after which it again went into winter quarters. The next year it moved with the Army of the Potomac and went with Sheridan on his memorable raid, and rejoined the army on the 25th. In Sheridan’s second raid it also engaged. Its subsequent career was identified with the Army of the Potomac, at Wyatt’s Farm, Boydton Plank Road, McDowell’s Hill, and Five Forks, and was present at Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. The regiment was mustered out of service at Cloud’s Mills, July 13, 1865, after which “the boys ” returned home, all but the dead, whose bones are bleaching from the Potomac to the Blackwater.



EIGHTY-FOURTH PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY


     Was organized under a special order from the war department, issued by General Cameron, then secretary of war, to General J. Y. James, of Warren county. William G. Murray, of Blair county, as colonel ; Thomas C. McDowell, of Dauphin county, as lieutenant-colonel; Walter Barrett, of Clearfield county, as major ; Thomas H. Craig, of Blair county, as adjutant; Dr. G. F. Hoop, of Clearfield county, as surgeon ; C. A. W. Redlick, of Allegheny county, as assistant surgeon; Alexander MacLeod, of Clear-field, as chaplain, and J. Miles Kephart, of Centre county, as quartermaster.


     The point of rendezvous was Camp Crossman, three miles from Huntingdon. Late in the fall of 1861 the regiment moved to Camp Curtin, at Harris-

burg.  In December of the same year the regiment was ordered to Hancock, Md., to protect that point from a threatened invasion by the command of General Jackson.  There the regiment received their arms in the afternoon, and the next morning, before daylight, ordered to march to the town of Bath to assist in bringing away a battery of artillery.  Before they reached that point they were informaed of the near approach of Jackson's army.  They succeeded in securing the artillery, but one-half of the regiment was compelled to wade the Potomac River to escape capture.


     From there, under command of General Lander, they marched to Cumberland, Md., from whence, in a few days, they went into camp at a point on the Paw Paw River, where General Lander formed his division. They remained at this point until the early spring of 1862. General Lander having died during the winter, General James Shields was appointed to the command.

     As soon as the season permitted, the camp was broken up and the division moved to Martinsburg, Va. At this time Clearfield county was represented by Company G, captain, Merrick Howsler, of Cameron county ; Company H, captain, William M. Behan ; Company I, captain, Joseph L. Kirby, first lieutenant, Clarence L. Barrett, second lieutenant, John B. Ferguson; Company K, captain, Matthew Ogden, and second lieutenant, John S. Jury; also from Clearfield county was Fred Barrett and Richard H. Shaw, hospital stewards. At the point last above referred to, the Eighty-fourth was brigaded with the One Hundred and Tenth Pennsylvania, the Fourteenth Indiana, and the Thirteenth Indiana, under the command of Colonel Nathan Kimball, of the Fourteenth Indiana. Upon the arrival of the division in Martinsburg, immediate preparation was made to attack General Jackson at Winchester, Va. In less than a week the whole force was marching to that point. When the division arrived at Winchester, it was found that Jackson had retired down the Shenandoah valley.

     General Shields immediately put the division in light marching order, moved down the valley to Strasburg, reconnoitering as he proceeded, remained there one night. The next morning, by a forced march, returned to Winchester, passing hurriedly through the town, encamping upon the other side of the town some two or three miles distant. The people of Winchester, of southern sympathy, were greatly elated at what they supposed and termed “ Shields’s scare.” Belle Boyd, a woman of subsequent notoriety, immediately rode to Jackson’s camp and informed him of Shields’s hasty retreat, and the supposed demoralized condition of his army -at least that was the information received by Shields’s division.

     Early in the morning of March 22 the pickets were driven in, and by ten o’clock the battle of Kernstown was commenced. It raged fiercely until in the afternoon. Here Colonel Murray was killed, evidently by a sharpshooter. The figure “ 84” in his cap was driven into his brain by the force of the bullet ;

also Captain Patrick Gallagher, of Company E, and Lieutenant Charles Reem, of Company A.  Nearly one-half of the regiment were killed or wounded.  The regiment was made the subject of a special complimentary order from the commanding general for gallantry upon this occaision.


     After the battle of Winchester, Major Barrett being in command, on account of the severe loss it had sustained, the regiment was assigned to provost duty at Berryville, Va. While here Lieutenant-Colonel McDowell joined the regiment for the first time. In a short time it was ordered to Winchester for provost duty, Lieutenant-Colonel McDowell as commandant, and Major Barrett as provost marshal. After a short stay at that place they were ordered to rejoin the division, which was then under orders to join General McDowell’s forces at Falmouth. On this march, at the town of Luray, Colonel McDowell
resigned his commission and severed his connection with the regiment. The command again devolved upon Major Barrett, there being neither colonel nor lieutenant-colonel. They proceeded to Falmouth in a ragged and forlorn condition, having had no clothing issued to them since the winter before. After three days’ rest at Falmouth, Shields’s division was again ordered to retrace their steps up the Luray Valley to head off Jackson, who was then on his way to join Lee in front of McClellan, who (Lee) was being pursued by Fremont and Sigel. By forced marches the first brigade of the division to which the Eighty-fourth was attached, reached Port Republic at the same time that Jackson’s army appeared upon the other side of the river Shenandoah.

     The object of the Federal troops was to destroy the bridge in order to prevent Jackson’s artillery from crossing. So near did they come to accomplishing this, that several regimental officers were close enough to the bridge to see General Jackson and several members of his staff ride through the bridge to rejoin his command. Of course he was unrecognized at the time, and the
incident would not have been known had it not been recorded by General Dick Taylor in his description of the scene. Then commenced what has often been claimed the most fiercely-contested battle of the war, considering the numbers engaged and the inequality of the opposing forces. The Federal troops, all told, did not have over sixteen hundred infantry, four companies of cavalry, and one battery of two guns of the First Virginia Artillery, while Jackson’s force amounted to about seventeen thousand effective men.

     The Eighty-fourth formed the left wing along with the two pieces of artillery. Colonel Tyler was in command. He ordered a charge to be made up a hill by the Eighty-fourth, which cost the regiment in killed and wounded about eighty men, which was fully one-fourth of their effective men in the field, their ranks having been decimated by sickness and exhaustion from the forced marches. For a period of about ten days previous to the battle, no rations had been issued. The troops were compelled to live from food obtained by foraging parties, and which principally consisted of mutton without salt, hickory ashes being used in its stead.

CLEARFIELD’S MILITARY HISTORY.


     Notwithstanding the disadvantage the Federal troops were under, the gallant soldiers held Jackson’s army at bay from eleven o’clock A. M. of the 8th day of June until four o’clock P. M. of the 9th, when they were compelled to fall back. The retreat was a running fight from the scene of battle to Conrad Station. General Shields, hurrying forward, joined the retreating force about four miles from the scene of conflict. He immediately ordered Major Barrett to form his regiment and protect the rear of the retreating army, which kept them in a constant fight for a distance of about ten miles. After this provision by General Shields, not a prisoner was lost, although many were killed and wounded. The division returned to Luray, broken in health and decimated in number.

      The Eighty-fourth at this time could not muster over two hundred effective men. Major Barrett was ordered from there to Harrisburg to consult with Governor Curtin as to filling up the regiment, both in rank, line and file. At this time there were not captains to over half the companies, but one field officer, the adjutant, having been wounded at Port Republic, left the regiment in a fearfully demoralized condition. The result of Major Barrett’s visit to Harrisburg was an immediate movement to fill up the ranks, and a demand from Governor Curtin that the regiment should be given an opportunity to gather in its scattered troops from the various hospitals. Late in June Colonel Bowman, of Columbia county, was appointed colonel, Major Barrett having declined that commission, but was promoted to lieutenant-colonel ; Adjutant Craig was appointed major.

     In the mean time, under the command of the senior captain, the division moved to near Alexandria. Two brigades were shipped to join McClellan on the Peninsula, and two went into camp, and thus was Shields’s famous division dissolved.

     Colonel S. S. Carroll, having been promoted brigadier-general, was placed in command of the new brigade in Ricketts’s Division of McDowell’s Corps.

     When Pope was placed in command, Ricketts’s Division, to which the Eighty-fourth belonged, marched to Gainesville, and engaged with that division in all the fighting through the second battle of Bull Run.

     In August, 1862, Lieutenant-Colonel Barrett received a severe injury from his horse falling upon him, and in September resigned his commission. Major Craig was appointed to succeed him. Captain Milton Opp, of Company F, was commissioned major.

     The above has been written in detail, for the reason that up to this period the Eighty-fourth had a distinctive record, being merged only in Shields’s Division, and operating in West Virginia and in the valleys of Shenandoah and Luray, away from large armies, but from and after this date it became a part of the grand Army of the Potomac, sharing in its marches, privations, hardships, battles, and glories ; and the history of that grand army is a history of

the Eighty-fourth, as well as of the other regiments that composed it.  Following, under the various commanders, from the second battle of Bull Run, it Participated in all the battles until it was finally merged, January 13, 1865, with the Fifty-seventh Pennsylvania Infantry, and ceased to hold its place in the Pennsylvania line.


      On the 11th of June, 1863, Colonel Bowman was ordered to special duty at Washington, and never afterwards was with the regiment. After the consolidation George Zinn was commissioned colonel, Samuel Bryan, major, as representing the Eighty-fourth Regiment in the new organization. The Eighty-fourth took part in the battles of Winchester, Port Republic, Cedar Mountain, Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court-House, Cold Harbor, siege of Petersburg, besides scores of engagements as a regiment, or with brigaded division, which, having been overshadowed by the great battles of the war, are not fixed in the minds and recollection of the people. No braver or better companies were in that regiment than those furnished by Clearfield county. Company K, commanded by Captain Matthew Ogden; Company I, by Captain Joseph Kirby; Company H, by Captain William Bahan; Company G, by Captain Merrick Housler, were either in whole or major part recruited from Clearfield county.

     Before the regiment heard a “gun-fire,” but being in line of battle at Hancock, Md., the eccentric but daring General Lander rode along the line, closely inspecting the men. He turned to the field officers and said : “By gosh! those men will fight.”

A major part of the recruiting offices were established in, and the men enlisted mainly from what was, at that time, known as the “ Wild Cat” district, being the congressional district of which this county then formed a part. When a sufficient number were enlisted, and, as a matter of fact, the sturdy residents responded quickly and nobly to the call, an organization was completed, and field officers elected as follows: Amor A. McKnight, colonel; W. W. Corbett, lieutenant-colonel ; M. M. Dick, major. The regiment rendezvoused at Pittsburgh, but were not long permitted to remain there, as, early in October the command was ordered to the front, and in pursuance thereof went to Washington and encamped for a brief time, and then moved to a point about one mile south of Alexandria, known as Camp Jameson, where they went into winter quarters. Here it was assigned to Jameson’s Brigade, which was made up in the main of Pennsylvania troops.

     In March following, 1862, they broke camp and were transported to Fortress Monroe, and immediately afterward participated in the siege of Yorktown, doing guard duty and suffering only from sickness caused by the unhealthful locality in which they were placed. Upon the evacuation of the place by the enemy, they joined in pursuit, and after a hard march through rain and mud

reached Williamsburg.  The next day, May 4, they were advanced as skirmishers, and planted the colors on the principal fort of the enemy.  It was next engaged at Fair Oaks, where it got into exceedingly close quarters, but through the coolness and efficiency of the officers in command, and the bravery and determined fighting done by men, it was eventually victorious, and escaped annihilation and capture, but not without serious loss and injury to officers and men.  The result of this battle to the regiment was forty-one killed, one hundred and fifty wounded, and seventeen missing.  Headley, in mentioning the part taken by the One Hundred and Fifth during the battle of Fair Oaks, says: “ Napoleon’s veterans never stood firmer during a devastating fire.” On the 26th and 27th of June following the regiment was again engaged at the battles of Mechanicsville and Gaines’s Mill, but met with no serious loss. After this the army fell back and began a retreat to the James River, and Jameson’s Brigade was placed under command of General Robinson. During this retreat in which the Federal forces were hard pressed by the Confederates, the regiment was constantly under orders and frequently exposed to the enemy’s fire. On the 30th, at Charles City Cross Roads, it had a sharp engagement with the rebels in repelling an attempt on the part of the latter to capture a battery, and in which the regiment lost fifty men in killed and wounded. At Malvern Hill, the next day, it was under a heavy artillery fire, but not closely engaged. At the close of the campaign on the Peninsula, the regiment was assigned to duty in guarding the railroad between Manassas and Warrenton Junction. At the Second Bull Run it was again hotly engaged and its ranks fearfully decimated by being in an open position and exposed to the deadly fire of the enemy, but nevertheless held firmly to its place in support of a battery At sundown it was relieved and placed on picket duty until nearly midnight, and then moved to Centreville, where it lay until the 31st. General Kearney, in his report of the Second Bull Run fight, says : “The One Hundred and Fifth Pennsylvania Volunteers were not wanting. They are Pennsylvanians--mountain men--again have they been fearfully decimated. The desperate charge of these regiments sustains the past history of this division.”

     Reduced in numbers, fatigued and worn, but retaining their characteristic bravery and determination, and willing to remain in active service at the front, the regiment was, at the close of Pope’s campaign, ordered into the defenses of Washington, and remained there until after the battle of Antietam. On the 28th of October following it moved to White’s Ford, crossed the Potomac and proceeded to the Ball’s Bluff battle ground, where for several days it was engaged in scouting expeditions in the vicinity of Leesburg and Millville. With the main army it then advanced to the Rappahannock, and on the 24th of November, reached Falmouth. On the 13th of December it crossed the river, and at a double quick went to the relief of the Pennsylvania Reserves, who

were hotly engaged and hard pressed, and took a position in the rear of Randolph’s battery. At dusk it advanced and lay upon their arms in front of the battery for a space of thirty-six hours, within reach of, but concealed from the rebel sharpshooters, but was then relieved and returned to camp across the river. From this time until the latter part of January, 1863, the regiment
remained in camp, and were then ordered to move, but owing to the impassable condition of the roads, were compelled to return.

     The troops were reviewed by Governor Curtin on the 26th day of March, and on the 10th of April following were visited by President Lincoln and General Hooker, the latter having now been advanced to the chief command. On the 28th of April the brigade to which the regiment was attached, started on the Chancellorsville campaign and occupied a prominent position in the engagements that followed, charging here and there in the thickest of the fight, constantly under the terrible fire of artillery and infantry, suffering every hardship known to modern warfare, until on the 5th of May it was ordered across the river to Falmouth. In killed, wounded, and missing the regiment lost in this battle an aggregate of seventy-seven men out of three hundred and forty-seven that entered, among the killed being the gallant Colonel McKnight. Then commenced the move to the northward, and the regiment reached the scene of Gettysburg on the night of July 1, and on the day following Companies A, C, D, F, and I were deployed as skirmishers in support of the Sixty-third Regiment, where they remained until afternoon when they were called in, and with the regiment, took a position on the right of the brigade when the battle commenced. During the terrible battle that ensued the regiment behaved nobly, and fought as brave men can fight, first advancing and then retiring, officers and men alike being cut down under the merciless artillery and infantry fire, until at night, they took a position on the road connecting Cemetery Ridge with Round Top. Of two hundred and forty-seven men who went into this fight, the regiment lost in killed, wounded, and missing, one hundred and sixty-eight, more than half of its numerical strength. Of the conduct of the One Hundred and Fifth, Colonel Craig said: “We rallied some eight or ten times after the rest of the brigade had left us, and the boys fought like demons. Their battle-cry was, Pennsylvania. I could handle them just as well on that field of battle as though they had been simply on drill. This is a state of perfection in discipline that is gained in but few regiments.”

     Gettysburg over, after a series of movements, and a sharp brush at Auburn, the regiment brought up at Fairfax Station, where for a brief time it was assigned to provost duty, but again advanced, and in the latter part of November took part in the battle of Locust Grove. At the close of the Mine Run campaign it went into winter quarters at Brandy Station.

     On the 28th of December two hundred and forty men, nearly the entire strength of the regiment, re-enlisted, and were given a veteran furlough. While away about fifty recruits were obtained.

     Early in May of the succeeding year preparations for the spring campaign were completed, and refreshed and recruited the regiment moved with the army to participate in the memorable seven-days battle of the Wilderness. The results accomplished here fully maintained the reputation and fighting ability of the One Hundred and Fifth. Their grand coup de main on the 12th was a crowning glory, and by it there fell into the hands of the Federal troops five thousand prisoners, besides artillery and small arms. Next came Petersburg, in which it took part, and after that the raid on the Weldon Railroad. July 26 the regiment participated in the movement across the James River, and returned in time to be of good service during the events that followed, but suffered severe losses. Colonel Craig was mortally wounded and died a day later. In the various attacks on the Weldon Railroad that followed during the fall and early winter, it took a lively part, after which it again went into winter quarters.

     The next spring, 1865, the regiment engaged at Hatcher’s Run and Sailor’s Creek, and upon the surrender of General Lee marched, by way of Richmond, to Bailey’s Cross Roads, where it encamped. On June 23 it marched in the grand review at Washington, and on the 11th of July was finally mustered out of service. During its service in the field this regiment lost two colonels, two lieutenant-colonels, one major, five captains, and five lieutenants were killed in action, or died from wounds so received. At the final muster out not an officer, and but a handful of the men who originally marched with the regiment remained.

THE ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINTH REGIMENT-BUCKTAILS.


     To the formation of this regiment the counties of Potter, Tioga, Lycoming, Clearfield, Clarion, Lebanon, Allegheny, Luzerne, Mifflin, and Huntington, contributed men. The successes achieved and the gallant services rendered by the original famous “ Bucktails” induced the war department to organize and equip other similar regiments, and in pursuance of the authority vested in him by the secretary of war, Roy Stone, who ranked as major in the original Bucktail regiment, and who commanded one of its battalions through many a hot battle with McClellan’s army on the Peninsula, was directed to proceed at once to Pennsylvania and raise a Bucktail Brigade. This was in July, 1862. In less than twenty days the One Hundred and Forty-ninth and the One Hundred and Fiftieth regiments were formed and ready to receive their equipments for the field. These two were suddenly called to the defense of the nation’s capitol, as the hosts of the Confederacy had invaded Maryland and seriously
threatened the whole region around Washington.

HISTORY OF CLEARFIELD CONUTY. [sic]
 

     Clearfield county was represented in the One Hundred and Forty-ninth, either in whole or in part, in the formation of Companies B and E. Upon the complete organization of the regiment the following were the field officers: Roy Stone, colonel ; Walton Dwight, lieutenant-colonel ; George W. Speer, major. For the remaining part of the year 1862, and until the middle of February of the succeeding year, the regiment remained on duty in the vicinity of Washington, after which they were ordered to the front, and proceeded to Belle Plain, Va., where with the One Hundred and Forty-third Pennsylvania they formed the Second Brigade of the First Army Corps, and Colonel Stone was placed in command.

     They were first under fire from the enemy on the Rappahannock, a short distance from Pollock’s Mills, and held firmly to their position. Early the next morning, May 2, it marched to join the main army in the fierce battle at Chancellorsville and arrived there before daylight on the morning of the 3d, and at once began the construction of rifle-pits. For several days and nights following the regiments were engaged, reconnoitering and skirmishing here and there, attacking the enemy’s pickets and capturing several prisoners, and generally rendering commendable service, bravely facing danger with the fearlessness of veterans.

     Following close upon the heels of Chancellorsville came the Gettysburg campaign, General Lee, commanding the Confederate forces, having moved northward early in June. During the first and second days the regiment was actively engaged, occupying prominent and important positions, and exposed to an almost constant fire from the enemy’s battery or sharpshooters. During the third day it was held in reserve and was marching to meet Pickett’s division when the Confederate forces withdrew. In this long and bloody fight the regiment certainly established the fact that the name by which they were
known, ” Bucktails,” was worthily applied ; but the command fared badly at Gettysburg. Colonel Stone, the gallant commander, was severely wounded, as was Lieutenant Colonel Dwight, Captain John Irvin, of Company B, and Lieutenant Mitchell, of Company E. In his official report of the Gettysburg fight General Doubleday says: “ I relied greatly on Stone’s Brigade to hold the post assigned it (between the brigades of Cutler and Meredith), as I soon saw that I should be obliged to change front with a portion of my line, to face the northwest, and his brigade held the pivot of the movement. My confidence in this noble body of men was not misplaced. They repulsed the repeated attacks of vastly superior numbers, and maintained their position until the final retreat of the whole line.” After the battle the regiment lay encamped for a day or two on the field, and started with the army in pursuit of Lee and his retreating forces. The events that followed during the fall campaign were unimportant, and early in December, they went into winter quarters near Culpepper.

CLEARFIELD'S MILITARY HISTORY.


     Early in May of the year 1864, the brigade was prepared for the spring campaign and moved from their winter camp to a point near the old Wilderness Tavern, but remaining there but a single night, again moved forward out on the Log road, where a line of battle was formed, the pushing forward met the enemy in a fierce and almost hand to hand conflict, but having an inferior position for successful battle, was slowly forced back to the Lacy Housem where they re-formed and were held in reserve for the rest of the day.  In this encounter the regiment suffered severely at the hands of the rebels, being taken at a great disadvantage and somewhat by surprise.  Early in the evening, however, the regiment retrieved its loss, having been moved to the right of the Second Corps, led the charge and drove the enemy from his position, and with but slight loss to its own force.  On the morning of the 6th the battle was renewed with all its vigor, with success at first, but later the whole line was compelled to fall back leaving the brave commander, Wadsworth, dying on the field.  In the afternoon the brigade was ordered to charge against Longstreet's forces in the hope of recovering a lost position, and noble was the order executed, after which the regiment was relieved and retired to the rear for rest and recuperation.  In this two days' contest the regiment lost in killed, fifteen; in wounded, ninety-nine, and in prisoners taken, ninety-two -- about one-fourth of its entire number.


     On the morning of the I8th, after an all night march, the regiment reached Laurel Hill, and immediately went to the relief of the cavalry. Although very much fatigued from its long march, and being in an exposed position, it held firmly to its ground during the day, and at evening threw up breastworks. After a day in reserve it again went to the front attacking the enemy and driving them into their works. On the 12th they again charged, but were repulsed with some loss. The men then went to support the Sixth Corps, and took a position at the front where they were exposed to the merciless fire of the rebel sharpshooters. They then moved again, and during the night of the 13th to a position one mile east of Spottsylvania Court-house. With the First Division the regiment moved on to Petersburg, and both in the siege and assault upon the enemy’s works it was actively engaged. It was then under command of Colonel John Irvin, he having been promoted to that rank April 22, 1864. From the time of the opening of the campaign in May, until the close of the month of July, the One Hundred and Forty-ninth Regiment, according to the report of Colonel Irvin, lost two commissioned officers, and thirty-two men killed, six commissioned officers, and two hundred and forty-three men wounded, and one hundred and twenty-one missing, an aggregate of four hundred and four.

     On the 18th of August, 1864, the regiment joined in the first assault on the Weldon Railroad. Although at close quarters, and in a severe struggle, on account of an admirable position, its loss was very light, while that of the

beaten enemy was quite severe.  On the 11th of September, they were relieved from duty at the front and went into reserve, and so continued until the 7th of December when it joined in the grand raid upon the Weldon Railroad, and on the return therefrom acted as rear guard, in which position they were continually harassed by the Confederate calvary.


     In the early part of February, 1865, it joined the movement to Dabney’s Mills, and participated in the engagement at that point, the last conflict at arms in which the gallant regiment took an active part. It was then detached from the Army of the Potomac and sent to Elmira, N. Y., where, with the One Hundred and Fiftieth, it was on guard duty at the camp for rebel prisoners. Here it remained until the close of its term of service, and was mustered out on the 24 of June, and proceeding to Harrisburg was paid off, and finally disbanded.

They were enlisted mainly in Burnside and the surrounding townships, but the military record gives this county no credit for any part of that or any other company of the Sixty-fourth. The regiment entered the service in October, 1861, and was mustered out in July, 1865.

     Clearfield county was also represented in Battery A, First Regiment of artillery-Campbell’s Battery, the Forty-third in the line. The contingent was small, comprising less than ten recruits.
