"Pittsburgh During the American Civil War, 1860-1865," by Arthur B. Fox. Originally published in 2002, by Mechling Bookbindery, Chicora, PA 16025. http://www.mechlingbooks.com
Hardback, gold incrested front cover, 236 pages, with illustrations, photos, appendix, credits and bibliography. "Having 'grown-up' in the Pittsburgh area myself drew me to review this book, if only for sentimental personal reasons. And indeed, I am glad I did. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was instrumental in contributing to the eventual victory over the Southern States, both in contributing her native sons who will donate their lives, as well as exercising her manufacturing muscle that would extend far into the next century! If one considers the fact that following current Routes 22-30 West abvout 25 miles to Weirton, this buffer separating PA from Ohio was indeed once part of the Confederacy! Little thought is given to this day that the Confederacy, prior to the (some argue) illegal annexation of another state with the creation of another (West Virginia), indeed proves it vital that this area at once be neutralized. This book by Arthur B. Fox is indeed a labor of love. He has thoroughly researchd and documented this important time both in our nation as well as the development of this industrious mill town as well as her sons. Many of her sons will 'donate' blood for the cause. Others will 'donate' lungs working in the treacherous mills that built the Northern military machine. Fox's book includes the Camps of Allegheny County, blast furnances, rollings mills, foundries, hospitals, fortifications, heck the same thing that today makes Pittsburgh so unique! Buy this book.

13th Pennsylvania Regiment Reserve Volunteers: "History of the Bucktails- The Thirteenth Pennsylvania Reserve:" by H. Thomson and William Rauch. This regimental history was published in 1906.

The Sharpshooters often talk glowingly about this poor regiment that sustained heavy loses just about everywhere they went. A great book and if found expect to pay 250-300 dollars.

51st Pennsylvania, "History of the Fifty-first of Pennsylvania Volunteers, P.V. and V.V.," by Thomas H. Parker. Originally published in 1869 by King & Baird, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the 51st was one of Fox's Top 300 Fighting Regiments, as they earned their stripes by shedding their life sustaining blood in Union General Ambrose Burnside's North Carolina Expedition, returning to Virginia soil in time for the infamous 2nd and last battle of Manassas. They were one of the Federal units that attempted storming the lower bridge at Antietam (later renamed Burnside's Bridge), suffering over 100 casualties. Later, they fought and shed blood with the 9th Corps in Mississippi and Tennessee, and finally under the direction of General Ulysses Simpson Grant in the Virginia Campaign.

83rd Pennsylvania, "History of the Eighty-third Pennsylvania Regiment Volunteers," by Captain Amos M. Judson, Company E, 83rd Pennsylvania. Amos M. Judson enlisted on July 29th, 1861, commissioned a 1st Lieutenant on August 26th, 1861, following his three months' service with the Erie Regiment. He served a full three years with the 83rd Pennsylvania, spanning most of the Army of the Potomac's active operations, save the last seven months. His writing style is flowing, easy to read, humorous, at times even satirical, and especially graphic. The Erie Regiment was mustered out of service in July, 1861. Soon after, Colonel John McLane raised a 3 years' regiment, drawing many of the men back that had previously served in the old 3 months' service. Most of the men of the 83rd Pennsylvania who came from Pennsylvania's northwest counties, were a tough mixture of yeoman farmers, lumberjacks, and Lake Erie fishermen. That hard boned background proved itself on the battlefield, where the 83rd suffered more deaths and mortal wounds than any other Federal regiment, except for the 5th New Hampshire Infantry. An actual Civil War vet, Judson's memoir (first published in 1865, at Erie, Pennsylvania,) is one of the first, if not the very first, of the regimental histories to appear. The 83rd is remembered for standing shoulder to shoulder with Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and the 20th Maine on Little Round Top, Gettysburg. It also had a major role to play at Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, and at 2nd Bull Run. As a participant and prior to subsequent contemporaries to exhault Chamberlain's feats, Judson has a keen eye in his tribute to Colonel Strong Vincent who was Chamberlain's commander and was mortally wounded at Little Round Top, who is more often forgotten. Though slender, this scarce work is detailed and written with literary skills and a sense of humor. The Erie Regiment , served from the Virginia Peninsula to Appomattox CourtHouse, losing heavily at Malvern Hill and at Spotsylvania. Brigaded under COLONEL STRONG VINCENT and Joshua Chamberlain (3rd, 1st, V.) they were instrumental in repulsing the attack on Little Round Top. 160 pages photos, index, cost of $ 30.00.

After Antietam, the 93rd was assigned to the 6th Corps and was engaged in the battles of Gettysburg, Salem Heights, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. It then fought with Sheridan in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. The 93rd returned to Petersburg in 1865 and lost heavily in the attack on Ford Stedman. Penrose G. Mark was captain of Company D.

105th Pennsylvania, "History of the 105th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers," by Kate Scott. Originally published in 1877, it has been re-printed for the first time (1993), this extremely scarce Civil War history is devoted entirely to the famous, "Wildcat" regiment. The 105th Pennsylvania was composed of men from Jefferson, Clearfield, Indiana, Clarion and Westmoreland counties. Many area residents are the descendents of those men who served in the 105th. Written in a modern style, the History of the 105th Pennsylvania is one of the few regimental histories written by a woman of the time. Kate Scott was able to tell the story of the regiment because of her close association as a nurse and her work with veterans after the war. The "Wildcat" Regiment saw action at Fair Oaks, Glendale, 2nd Manassas, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, Petersburg, etc. Included are illustrations, 17 photographs and a brief introductions. This limited edition hardbound, 329-page book costs $ 32.50, and can be ordered from: The Jefferson County Historical & Genealogical Society, 232 Jefferson St., Brookville, PA 15825. Also available from Butternut & Blue 3411 North Wind Rd., Baltimore, MD 21234.

107th Pennsylvania, "The Civil War Letters of First Lieutenant James B. Thomas, Adjutant," edited by Mary Warner Thomas and Richard A. Sauers. Published for the first time, this manuscript contains the descriptive letters of a perceptive Pennsylvanian who served throughout the war. The unit saw action at 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg, and in other major battles fought by the Army of the Potomac. In 1863, it served in the famous 1st Corps and fought on Oak Ridge on July 1. The regiment, which was later assigned to the 5th US Army Corps, was actively engaged in the Overland Campaign of 1864-1865. Since the 107th never had a unit history published, these letters provide the first in-depth look at the 107th Pennsylvania.

After recovering from a wound incurred on the first day at Fair Oaks, he was commissioned a Captain in the 118th Pennsylvania, where he served from August 1862 through December 1863, fighting in all of the major battles and campaigns in the east during that time. His never before seen letters are full, literate, and descriptive (some of the originals cover more than 50 sheets of writing paper), and had lain virtually untouched in the Civil War Library and Museum in Philadelphia since his death. As to where to post the book, I would put it under the 118th Pennsylvania listing, as 3/4 of the book deals with his service in that regiment.

149th Pennsylvania Regiment Volunteer Infantry....fact...."This distinguished regiment is included as one of William F. Fox's (circa 1889) top 300 Union Fighting Regiments."

149th Pennsylvania, "History of the 149th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Unit in the Civil War," by Richard E. Matthews. This is the story of the 149th, a "Bogus Bucktail" regiment raised in 1862, comprised of men from 11 widely scattered counties, its story told for the 1st time, since a history has never been heretofore written. Matthews has done the 149th a first rate job. The 149th Pennsylvania first saw action at McPherson's Farm at Gettysburg, on July 1st, 1863, where its colors were captured while separated from the regiment to draw enemy Artillery fire. The regiment then served with the 5th U.S. Army Corps until the remnant was sent to guard the draft rendezvous at Elmira, New York, in February, 1865, and went home in June, 1865. This regimental history focuses on how this units and its men changed during the course of the war. (partial review by Dr. Richard Sauers above) 296 pages, photos, maps, roster.

"149th Pennsylvania", by Richard B. Matthews, 1994 edition. 296 pages, maps, illustrations, bibliography, index, roster, cost $ 44.00, includes shipping. In August 1862, the 149th, 2nd generation Bucktails (the 1st were the 13th PA Reserves) was recruited from 11 Penna. counties in 20 days. 1st assigned to Washington, DC, it spent 6 months pulling guard duty & menial tasks. The next 6 months, the regiment was around Chancellorsville, VA, training and on guard and picket duty. Without seeing any combat, by June 30, 1863, the 149th had lost 109 men due to resignations, transfers and medical discharges; 45 men had also died from disease and accidents. Entering the Gettysburg Campaign, the 149th reported 590 men present for duty. In the heavy fighting around Seminary Ridge on July 1st, 1863, all of its field officers were wounded. Most of the Company officers were gone, and of the 450 men who went into battle at 11:00 a.m., only 150 were suntil under arms by 3:15 p.m. At the end of the fighting on July 4th, only 113 men reported for roll call. From July 1863 to May 1864, the 149th spent its time in and around northern Virginia, adjusting to the new conscripts who were brought in to get the unit up to regimental strength, and to the new commanders who replaced those lost at Gettysburg. With the Army of the Potomac now commanded by Ulysses S. Grant, the 149th marched onto Richmond. By the close of the fighting at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and the North Anna, the 149th numbered only 5 officers & 271 enlisted men. The 149th's final campaign was the assault on Petersburg, (June 1864-February 1865), involved in 5 battles & raids. The regiment was ordered to Elmira, New York on February 11th, 1865 for service at the Draft Rendezvous Camp. There it was assigned the duty of escorting new conscripts to other camps, depots or to field commands. The regiment was mustered out of service on June 23rd, 1865, less than 15 percent of the original members were on hand to bid farewell to each other. The author, Richard Matthews, uses pension files, letters, and numerous individual pictures to describe the fate of each soldier shown." (reviewed by Mike Ingrisano).

151st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, "The One Hundred Fifty-first Pennsylvania Volunteers at Gettysburg: Like Ripe Apples in a Storm," by Michael A. Dreese. Published by McFarland and Co., in year 2000 (190 pages, cloth $45.00). "Less-remembered units, such as the 151st Pennsylvania Volunteers, were also crucial to the Civil War's most famous battle. Relatively untried and nearing the end of its nine-month term of service, the 151st Pennsylvania nonetheless served courageously and suffered greatly in important actions against General Pettigre's North Carolinians on the first day of battle, and was involved in repulsing the Confederate charge two days later. During the course of battle, according to the author, the 151st Pennsylvania lost more than 72% of its men to capture, wounds, and death, the second-highest percentage of losses of Union troops engaged at Gettysburg. The book features a foreword by noted Civil War scholar Timothy H. Smith, photographs, maps, bibliography, and index. The subtitle is extracted from a letter written by William Oren Blodget, an officer of the 151st, to his wife in northwestern Pennsylvania, on July 2, 1863, the day after his regiment had participated in the bloody opening round of fighting. "Our poor boys fell around me like ripe apples in a storm," wrote Blodget. "God Bless Them! They were are heroes, every one."

153rd Pennsylvania, "History of the 153rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry," by William R. Kiefer. The 153rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry was organized in 1862 and was comprised of solely Northampton County men. Although the unit served for only 10 months , this 11th Corps unit saw extensive action at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. At Gettysburg, the regiment fought heroically, losing 247 out 550 men engaged. Of these casualties, 29 were killed and 23 mortally wounded. Kiefer, who served as a drummer in Company F, took great care in presenting the history of the 153rd Pennsylvania in the first half of this book. Included is a letter from Oliver O. Howard that reflects on the general's opinions concerning the two critical 1863 battles. The second portion of the regimental is written by unit members-letters and articles that describe every aspect of the unit's existence, from camp life to battlefield and hospital experiences. Originally published in 1909. 352 pages, available January, 1997 from Butternut & Blue, for $ 40.00, plus shipping.

Update on the 184th Pennsylvania: Would like to know if there's anyone interested in this regiment. My great great granduncle, Andrew J. Waid, left Sandy Lake, Pa. Mercer County in 1861. He was killed at the Battle of Cold Harbor or June 3, 1864. I have approximately 30 letters written by Andrew and his family back and forth until his death. Also letters are included in this number written by Andy's best friend John Hedglin, who later died from a wound received while trying to "draw Andy back" after he was shot. 184th Co. B, Pennsylvania Volunteer had Stanley Gearhart as their captain. I have a little bit of information on some of the people mentioned in the letters. Would be interested in selling the original letters to someone willing to use them in a regimental history of some sort. I have been told there was never a report filed after the battle in which Andrew died as the top leaders were killed in the battle also. Will answer any and all replies!! Thanks.
