This regiment was formed in August 1861, the recruits being from their state’s northern counties. As part of the ANV, we fought in various well-known battles.

The American Civil War

The costliest war in terms of human lives, the American Civil War claimed in excess of 620,000 battle or disease-related deaths - roughly two percent of the country's total population, and nearly more deaths than all other American wars combined.
