Pennsylvania:

 

a. allgemeines:

 

Beim Aufruf Lincoln’s vom Sommer 1862 weitere 300000 Mann aufzustellen, wurden in Pennsylvania auf Anordnung von Governor Curtin einen Reihe von 9-Month-Regiments aufgestellt. Zwar bevorzugte die Army die Indienststellung von 3-Years Regimentern, Governor Curtin erschien es aber aus politischen Gründen, infolge des hohen Blutzolls und der in der Vergangenheit erlittenen Verlust­e, sinnvoller und politisch klüger, 21 Regimenter mit einer kürzeren Verpflichtungszeit aufzustellen (vgl. Gallagher u.a.: Fredericks­burg, a.a.O., S. 80).

Die 67th Pennsylvania Infantry was a mixed regiment containing a sizable number of Pennsylvania Dutch as well as other ethnic groups (vgl. Valuska/Keller: Damn Dutch, a.a.O., S. 48). The highest percentage of Pennsylvania Dutch troops were found in compa­nies H and K, recruited in Northampton and Schuylkill Counties (vgl. Valuska/Keller: Damn Dutch, a.a.O., S. 216 n15).

 

Teilnahme am Battle of Winchester am 12.6.1863 (vgl. Valuska/Keller: Damn Dutch, a.a.O., S. 48). Das zur Brigade McReynolds ge­hörende Regiment bezog, eingesetzt auf dem linken Flügel der Division Milroy, nördlich von Williamsburg bei Stephenson's Depot, Stellungen hinter einer Steinmauer. The men of the 67th broke ranks to get water from the farmyard of J. Ester, and all military orga­nization collapsed. Col Staunton had committed a great error by allowing his men to become so disorganized. Choosing this propi­tious moment, the Confederates launched a vicious attack, routing McReynolds's brigade and sending the Unionists running to safety. The 67th was already in state of disorder, and the regiment broke. By the end, 17 men were killed, 38 were wounded and 791 were captured or missing. Only 117 men escaped the disaster (vgl. Valuska/Keller: Damn Dutch, a.a.O., S. 48).

Since Philadelphia possessed incredible ethnic diversity, including 94,000 Irish-Americans and 42,000 German-Americans, I made an effort to explore foreign-born companies. Irish-American companies almost always recruited larger percentages of younger men. Company I, 69th Pennsylvania Infantry, for instance, recruited onehundred-and-six men, of whom only seven were above thirty-year­s-old (vgl. Timothy J. Orr: “Calling Urban Men to Arms: Northern Cities Mobilize to Fight the Civil War”, Report to the Pennsylvan­ia Historical and Museum Commission Scholars-In-Residence Program June 19-July 1, 2006, n.p.).

Das Regiment wurde als 1st California Infantry aufgestellt, zusammengesetzt aus früheren Be­wohnern von Californien, die nunmehr in den Oststaaten lebten; das Regiment war ein deshalb ein Unikum; Company G wurde in New York aufgestellt, Company R in Wa­shington / DC, die restlichen Kompanien in Philadelphia / PA. Das 1st California war als er­stes US-Regiment für den 3-Years-Service vollständig aufgestellt und aus US-Mitteln finanziert. Aufgestellt in Fort Schuyler in der Bronx / NY. Da die meisten Soldaten aus Pennsylvania stammten, wurde das Regiment nach Protesten von Pennsylvania-Gouverneur A. G. Curtin umbenannt in 71st Pennsyl­vania Infantry (vgl. Farwell, Byron: Ball's Bluff - A small Battle and Its Long Shadow, a.a.O., S. 17).

Cols., A. Schimmelfennig, John Hamm, A. Von Hartung, Gottlieb Hoburg; Lieut.-Cols., Edward Freyhold, John Hamm, A. von Har­tung, Alexander von Mitzel, Carl Veitenheimer; Majs., John Hamm, Franz Blessing, A. von Hartung, Alexander von Mitzel, Gustav *Schleiter, Frederick Klenker, E. P. Rohbach. The 74th regiment, composed of German citizens from the cities of Pittsburg and Phil­adelphia and the counties of Allegheny, Westmoreland, Indiana, Columbia, Wyoming, Northumberland, Snyder, Union, Adams and Berks, was recruited during the summer of 1861, by a committee of Pittsburg citizens duly authorized by the war department for that purpose. The recruits were largely trained soldiers, and rendezvoused at Camp Wilkins, near Pittsburg, where on Sept. 14, 1861, they were mustered into the U. S. service for three years, as the 35th Pa. Infantry. Col. Schimmelfennig had been a Prussian staff officer and was a military man of fine attainments. On Sept. 19, the regiment proceeded to Philadelphia, where it was joined by a large body of recruits under Capt. von Mitzel. Soon after it was ordered to Washington and a week later to Roach's mills, Va., thence to Hunter's Chapel, where it went into winter quarters. While here Capt. von Hartung's Philadelphia company, which had been on duty at Fort Delaware, was added to the regiment. The winter was spent in drill, fatigue duty and work on the fortifications. In the spring of 1862 it was ordered with its division to Franklin, W. Va., to reinforce Gen. Fremont, then in command of the Mountain Department, and joined in the pursuit of Stonewall Jackson, being engaged with the enemy for the first time at the battle of Cross Keys, where it lost 6 killed and 14 wounded. After the battle it moved to Mount Jackson and thence to Middletown; was posted at Sperryville, from July 7 to Aug. 8; then moved by forced marches the 40 miles to Cedar mountain, but arrived too late for the battle at that point. Falling back with Pope's army, it narrowly escaped being surrounded and captured at Freeman's ford on the Rappahannock by the adroit tactics of its commander, Col. Schimmelfennig. Its loss here was 12 killed, 2 officers and 35 men wounded, 3 drowned and 16 missing. Col. Schimmelfennig now assumed command of the brigade, Gen. Bohlen having been killed, and the regiment participated with its division under Gen. Carl Schurz in the disastrous battles at Groveton and the second Bull Run. In the Antietam campaign it was at Washington and it later went into winter quarters near Stafford Court House, Va., receiving there a large number of recruits. On the promotion of Col. Schimmelfennig to brigadier-general, Maj. von Hartung succeeded to the command of the regiment. The 74th arrived too late to share in the fighting at Fredericksburg, although ordered to the front at that time. As a part of Schimmelfennig's brigade, Schurz's division, Howard's corps, it was heavily engaged at Chancellorsville, fighting on the second day of the battle with the most determined bravery. When the regiments belonging to the 1st division on the right broke and came rushing through its ranks, causing considerable disorder for a time, the most perfect order was soon restored by Col. Von Hartung. With the other regiments of its brigade it quickly executed a change of front, checked the impetuous advance of the enemy, and held him at bay for over an hour. Its total loss in this battle was 52 killed, wounded and missing. It remained encamped at Stafford Court House until June 12, when it started with its corps for Gettysburg, where it arrived about noon on July 1, and immediately went into action, taking position on the left of the corps, to the right of the Mummasburg road, in front of Dilger's Ohio battery. Its thin line was forced back to Cemetery hill by the overwhelming forces of the enemy. Lieut-Col. Von Mitzel was again a prisoner ; and out of 14 officers and 120 men brought into action, 1 officer and 6 men were killed, 4 officers and 40 men were wounded, and 52 men were reported missing. For the next two days it held its position in front of the batteries stationed in the cemetery, where it was joined by the men who had been detached on picket duty. Its loss here was 1 officer and 8 men killed and 1 officer and 15 men wounded, a total in the battle of 136. On Aug. 7, with the division, it was ordered to Folly island, S. C, arriving there on the 14th. It remained in that vicinity for about a year, making frequent expeditions to other islands and taking part in the engagement on James island in July, 1864, where it was under fire for several days at the time of the grand assault on the works of Charleston. In Aug., 1864, it returned to Washington and garrisoned Forts Marcy and Ethan Allen for a time. In September 130 members whose term of enlistment had expired were mustered out, after which the regiment went to West Virginia, where Cos. G and K and part of the field and staff were mustered out. At Grafton many of the men reenlisted and a large number of recruits joined the regiment, which was from that time employed in guarding the line of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, with headquarters successively at Green Spring, Beverly, Clarksburg and Parkersburg. It was finally mustered out at Clarksburg on Aug. 29, 1865. The men proceeded to Pittsburg, where they were finally paid and discharged (vgl. http://www.civilwarindex.com/armypa/74th_pa_infantry. Html).

Ursprünglich eine lokale Miliz "Slippery Rock Volunteers", später "Washington Guards"; als Bürgerkriegsregiment gegründet von Daniel Leasure ab August 1861; in einem Vorbereitungsgespräch mit Verteidigungsminister Cameron und General Winfield Scott, schlug letzterer den Namen "Roundheads" vor, als besondere Anerkennung für Capt. Leasure, der iro-schottischer Abstammung war. Das Regiment stammt aus West-Pennsylvania, wo besonders die Counties Mercer und Lawrence hauptsächlich von Personen iro-schottischer Abstammung besiedelt waren, meist presbyterianischen Glaubens (mit Vorfahren aus dem englischen Bürgerkrieg 1660 und Cromwell-Anhänger).

 

Musterung des Regiments erfolgte am 29.8.1861; Grundausbildung in Kalorama Heights / Washington DC im September 186; Verle­gung im Eisenbahntransport nach Annapolis/MD am 10.10.1861; verschifft am 19.10.1861 nach Port Royal Island / South Carolina (Karte Atlas 135 A)

Im Battle of Fredericksburg am 13.12.1862 gehörte die 106th Pennsylvania Infantry zum II. Korps; bei Angriff auf den Stonewall blieben die überlebenden Soldaten der ersten Angriffswellen vor dem Stonewall liegen und bildeten so für die Angreifer der späteren Angriffswellen, den Pennsylvania-Regimentern der Division Humphreys (Brigaden *Briggs/*Allabach und *Tyler) ein Hindernis, an dem u.a. deren Angriff letztendlich wegen Verlust des Zusammenhalts und der Geschwindigkeit scheiterte. Der Divisionskomman­deur BrigGen *Humphreys führte in seinem Official Report das Scheitern u.a. auf dieses Hindernis zurück. Diese Kritik löste eine Diskussion aus, insb. mit der 106th Pennsylvania Infantry, die sich gegen die Unterstellung der “Drückebergerei” verteidigte (vgl. Reardon, Carol: "Humphreys's Pennsylvania Division"; in: Gallagher u.a.: Fredericksburg, a.a.O., S. 103).

Pennsylvania Volunteer:

„Zouaves de Afrique“, Independent Company Infantry

 

Medal of Honor: Col Collis, Charles Henry Tucky

 

Led by the colorful Colonel Charles H. T. Collis, the 114th Pennsylvania was unique among the regiments in the Union Army. This unusual group of soldiers embraced the flamboyant uniform style made famous by the French army's Zouaves. Collis' original com­mand, an independent company of Zouaves d'Afrique, battled Stonewall Jackson in the 1862 Shenandoah Valley campaign. Recrui­ted in the summer of 1862 from Philadelphia and surrounding counties, its members were older and more highly skilled than the ave­rage Union soldier. Collis' Zouaves participated in many of the major battles of the war, including Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and Petersburg.

 

Während der Gettysburg Campaign 1863 gehörte die 114th Pennsylvania Infantry zum III Army Corps MajGen Daniel E. Sickles, 1st Division MajGen David B. Birney, 1st Brigade BrigGen Charles K. Graham (vgl. B & L, vol. III, a.a.O., S. 435).

Im Sommer 1862 war Col Owen *Jones Regimentskommandeur der 1st Pennsylvania Cavalry. Die 1st Pennsylvania Cavalry gehörte seit Sommer 1862 zu Pope's Army of Virginia, III. Corps McDowell, dessen Cavalry von BrigGen George D. *Bayard kommandiert wurde (vgl. Krick: Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 367). Am 7.8.1862 stieß Owen Jones auf Befehl von BrigGen Bayard mit seinem Re­giment Richtung Madison Court House vor, um seine Postenlinie, die westlich des Roberton River stand und von CS-Truppen ange­griffen wurde, zu verstärken (vgl. Karte bei Krick: Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 18). Gleichzeitig stieß BrigGen Bayard mit der 1st New Jersey Cavalry unter Führung von LtCol Joseph *Karge und Major Myron *Beaumont in zwei Angriffskeilen auf Barnett's Ford am Rapidan vor. Hierbei traf die US-Cavalry auf starke CS-Kräfte der Division Ewell, deren Vorhut aus Robertson's Cavalry bestand (vgl. BrigGen Bayard's Report OR 12 [2] S. 92-93). BrigGen Bayard ordnete den Rückzug an, wobei die US-Cavalry das verzögerte Gefecht führte. Auch Jones' Truppen wurden über den Robertson River zurückgenommen. Auf Befehl Bayard's ließ Jones die Brücke über den Robertson River zerstören (vgl. Bayard's Report OR 12 [2] S. 92).

e. Pennsylvania Militia:

im Frühsommer 1863 plante US-Kriegsminister Stanton, der nur geringes Vertrauen zum althergebrachten State-Militia-System hatte, die Aufstellung einer Militia, die der US-Regierung unterstehen sollte. Pennsylvania Governor hatte erhebliche Vorbehalte gegen die­sen Plan und akzeptierte ihn nur zögernd, da er befürchtete, in der Bevölkerung Pennsylvanias auf wenig Unterstützung zu stoßen. Als sich die Hinweise häuften, daß ein Angriff von Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia auf Maryland und Pennsylvania bevorstehe, wurde Stanton’s Plan am 9.10.6.1863 in die Tat umgesetzt und in Pennsylvania zwei neue Military Departments für die US-Militia geschaffen: the Department of Monongahely (unter MajGen W. T. H. Brooks mit Hauptquartier in Pittsburg) und das Department of the Susquehanna (unter MajGen Darius N. Couch mit Sitz in Harrisburg, Pa.) (vgl. Coddington: Gettysburg Campaign, a.a.O., S. 134-35).
