The 125th New York was captured at Harper's Ferry, a major Union debacle during the Maryland Campaign. Exchanged and allowed to rejoin the Union army in November, 1862, they were transferred to the defenses of Washington. Just before the battle of Gettys­burg, they were attached to Third Division, Second Corps as reinforcements. As they joined the moving column on the march toward Pennsylvania the hardfighting veterans of the Second Corps disparaged Willard's men as the 'Harper's Ferry Brigade', calling them 'band-box soldiers'. On the evening of July 2, Maj. Gen. Winfield S. Hancock led the 125th from their position near Cemetery Hill to­ward the fighting in the south where Barksdale's Mississippians were surging forward through a huge hole in the Union line. The 'Harper's Ferry Brigade' saw this as their chance to erase the shame of their surrender. Willard formed his lines carefully in a hail of missiles and ordered the men to fix bayonets. When they hit the Rebel line, in the low ground along Plum Run, it was the Southerners who broke, and Barksdale went down, wounded. Willard's men pursued, recapturing Yankee guns as they went. Willard was killed shortly after this victory by a shell fragment.

Im Sommer 1863 war LtCol Miller Regimentskommandeur 147th New York Infantry 2nd Brigade BrigGen Lysander *Cutler 1st Di­vision BrigGen James S. *Wadsworth I Army Corps MajGen Abner *Doubleday, Meade's Army of the Potomac und nahm am Battle von Gettysburg teil.; am 1.7.1863 eingesetzt im Rahmen von Cutler's Brigade nördlich des Bloody Railroad Gap (vgl. Martin: Get­tysburg, a.a.O., S. 105, 116). Die 147th New York sollte der 76th New York Infantry und 56th Pennsylvania Infantry folgen, die rechts der Railroad Line nach Westen vorstoßen sollten, rechts eingesetzt neben Hall’s Battery, während die beiden restlichen Re­gimenter der Brigade Cutler, 84th New York Infantry (14th Brooklyn Militia) und 95th New York Infantry, links der Battery zum Ein­satz kamen (vgl. Martin: Gettysburg, a.a.O., S. 104-106). Die 147th New York Infantry folgte jedoch nicht wie befohlen der 76th New York Infantry und 56th Pennsylvania Infantry, sondern den links von Hall’s Battery eingesetzten 84th New York Infantry (14th Brooklyn Militia) und 95th New York Infantry. Die 147th New York erhielt daraufhin Befehl nach rechts zu schwenken und Stellung 100 yards hinter Hall’s Battery nördlich des Bloody Railroad Gap zu nehmen, wo auf grund eines Rail Fence die Co’s der 147th New York Infantry nicht geschlossen eingesetzt werden konnten und der rechte Flügel des Regiments keinen Anschluß zu den rechts der Battery eingesetzten 76th New York Infantry und 56th Pennsylvania Infantry hatte. Dadurch entstand eine Lücke von 300 Yards in der Brigadefront (vgl. Martin: Gettysburg, a.a.O., S. 106). Major George Harvey äußert sich dagegen in einem Brief vom 18.8.1865 an den Historiker John *Bachelder zum Einsatz des Regiments am 1.7.1863. Harvey besteht entgegen anderer Meinungen, daß die 147th New York nicht von den anderen Regimentern der Brigade Cutler bei Seminary Ridge und Bloody Railroad Gap getrennt wor­den sei (Harvey, George: Letter to John Bachelder vom 18.8.1865; in Bachelder Papers, New Hampshire Historical Society, Concord, New Hampshire; Martin: Gettysburg, a.a.O., S. 618n113). Dagegen erscheint es tatsächlich zu einer Trennung innerhalb der Brigade Cutler gekommen zu sein, mit der Folge, daß die nicht geschlossene Front durch den Angriff der CS-Brigade *Davis aufgerollt wer­den konnte. Die 147th New York war anschließend im Zentrum der Kämpfe westlich Seminary Ridge und erhielt als letztes Re­giment von Cutler’s Brigade den Rückzugsbefehl (vgl. Martin: Gettysburg, a.a.O., S. 112, 116). Das Regiment verlor am Morgen des 1.7.1863 126 Tote und Vermißte, 163 Verwundete, insgesamt 289 Casualties bei einer Stärke von 380 Mann (vgl. Martin: Gettysburg, a.a.O., S. 119).

Das Regiment unternahm am 20.7.1862 einen Raid gegen *Beaver Dam Station, Va. (vgl. hierzu Freeman: Lee, a.a.O., S. 263, Stuar­t's Report OR 12 [2] S. 119; OR 12 [3] S. 916). Dabei wurde der an der Eisenbahn wartende John *Mosby gefangen genommen (vgl. Stuart's Report OR 12 [2] S. 119; Ramage: Grey Ghost, a.a.O., S. 51; Siepel: Mosby, a.a.O., S. 59; Mosby: Reminiscenses, a.a.O., S. 129; Jones: Ranger Mosby, a.a.O., S. 63; Siepel, a.a.O. schriebt die Festnahme Col. J. Mansfield Davies zu, Ramage, a.a.O., Col. J. M. Davies; in der 2nd New York Cavalry gab es jedoch nur Major Henry E. Davies; auch die Angabe des Ranges von Davies als Col der 2nd New York Cavalry kann nicht zutreffen, da das Regiment von Col Judson H. *Kilpatrick als Regimentskommandeur geführt wurde (vgl. Kilpatrick's Report: OR 12 [2} S. 102-103).

 

Scharmützel von Carmel Church am 23. Juli 1862. Col Judson H. *Kilpatrick unternimmt mit einer Abteilung seines 2nd New York Cavalry Regiments (Harris Light Cavalry), der 3rd Indiana Cavalry und der 14th Brooklyn Cavalry (Division BrigGen Rufus King, McDowell's Corps, Pope's Army of Virginia) von Fredericksburg (vgl. Stackpole: From Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 28) aus einen Vor­stoß gegen ein Camp der CS-Truppen, welches bei *Carmel Church vermutet wurde; dort legt er einen Hinterhalt, verfolgt angreifen­de Rebellen bis kurz vor Hanover Junction, wo er das CS-Camp zerstört und wird schließlich von überlegenen Kräften unter Jeb Stu­art vertrieben (vgl. Kilpatrick's Report: OR 12 [2} S. 102-103; King's Report: OR 12 [2] S. 102; Mosocco: Chronological Tracking of the Civil War, a.a.O., S. 77).

 

Vom 5.-8.8.1862 führte die Division Rufus *King mehrere Expeditions von Fredericksburg aus nach Frederick's Hall Station, Va. und Spotsylvania Court House, Va, durch die Brigade Gibbon durch mit dem Ziel, die für den Süden lebenswichtige Central Virginia RR zu zerstören (vgl. King's Report, OR 12 [2] S. 121-22). Die Expedition nach *Frederick's Hall Station wurde von BrigGen Gibbon, der auch die Gesamtoperation seiner Brigade leitete, selbst geführt (vgl. King's Report, OR 12 [2] S. 122; Gibbon's Report OR 12 [2] S. 122-23), diejenige nach *Spotsylvania Court House stand unter der Führung von Col Lysander Cutler; die Unterstützung erfolgte durch Truppen unter Gen. John P. *Hatch (vgl. King's Report, OR 12 [2] S. 122). Ziel von Gibbon's Expedition war die Zerstörung der Virginia Central RR. Bei diesem mit zwei Zangen durchgeführten Vorstoß wurden eingesetzt: an der Spotsylvania Court House Road: die 6th Wisconsin Infantry (Col. Lysander *Cutler), 8 Kompanien der Harris Cavalry (2nd New York Cavalry) unter Führung von 'Col' Davies (vgl. Cutler's Report OR 12 [2] S. 123: es handelt sich wohl um Major Henry E. *Davies, den Cutler in seinem Re­port, a.a.O., S. 125 erwähnt), und eine Abteilung von Gerrish's New Hampshire Battery. Die Abteilung unter der persönlichen Füh­rung Gibbon's, die auf der Telegraph Road vorstieß umfaßte 2nd Wisconsin,7th Wisconsin, 19th Indiana, 3rd Indiana Cavalry und Monroe's Rhode Island Battery (vgl. Gibbons's Report OR 12 [2] S. 122). Hierbei kam es zu wiederholten Feuergefechten bei Thorn­burg, Va. (sog. Affair of Thornburg 5.-6.8.1862), (vgl. Gibbon's Report, a.a.O.; Gibbons: Personal Recollections, a.a.O., S. 41; Gaff: On Many a Bloody Field, a.a.O., S. 146; Cutler's Report OR 12 [2] S. 123-24).
