PA Regiment was involved in nearly 30 battles during the Civil War, including Gettysburg, Antietam and Fredericksburg. Other battles included, Chancellorsville, Mine Run, Spotsylvania Court House, Cold Harbor, First Battle of Petersburg, Appomattox Campaign.
Was a highly important regiment. FORBES writes to his Mother briefly about he and his fellow soldiers experience at Fredericksburg and having to replace lost items at their own expense and complains about not receiving any letters from his Mother. 3 1/3 pp, 5 x 8, Camp Near Culpepper, VA, Sept.
I have sent you two letters and get no answer from you... We are close to the rebels for they try and break through our pickets every night. But they can't do it... I have got paid and only 12 dollars for my two months.
I have but 16 months to stay... With the help of the government...Slightly challenging hand writing, but overall quite readable. Our goal is to please every customer.
