CHAPTER XII

BUTLER COUNTY DURING THE WAR OF 1861-65

FORTIETH REGIMENT

ELEVENTH RESERVE

[p. 89]
The companies comprising the Eleventh Regiment of Pennsylvania Reserves were recruited, A in Cambria County, B and E in Indiana, C and D in Butler, F in Fayette, G in Armstrong, H and I in Westmoreland and K in Jefferson. A majority of those companies were recruited in April and May, 1861, for the three months' service, but, failing to be accepted, still preserved their organizations, and when the call for the Reserve Corps was issued, marched to the rendezvous at Camp Wright, near Pittsburgh. Upon their arrival in camp, they were mustered into the State service and furnished with blankets, clothing, etc., of excellent quality. The regimental, field and staff officers were chosen July 1, and some twenty days later the regiment was hurriedly moved forward to Washington, D. C., where, on the 29th of the same month, it was mustered into the United States service for three years.

During the three years succeeding the event just noted, the Eleventh Regiment of Pennsylvania Reserves [p. 90] performed most gallant and arduous services and to rehearse the story of its campaigns and battles in full would be but a repetition of the deeds performed by the Army of the Potomac, for the fallen heroes of the Eleventh were left upon all the great fields of battle in the States of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

The following history of Company C has been prepared by Capt. FLEEGER, yet we add in this connection that the history of Company D is equally as brilliant and illustrious, as the remarks opposite members' names will show, and that the part taken by a company of infantry, so far as regards its marches, battles, etc., is but the record of the regiment to which it belonged:

COMPANY C, ELEVENTH REGIMENT
PENNSYLVANIA RESERVE VOLUNTEER CORPS.

This company was recruited at Sunbury, Butler Co., Penn., in April and May, 1861. In honor of Rev. W. T. DICKSON,* then Principal of the West Sunbury Academy, at which a number of the members of the company were students, it was called the "Dickson Guards." Its services were promptly offered to the Government, and on the passage of the act of the Pennsylvania Legislature of May 15, 1861, authorizing the organization of the Pennsylvania Reserves, it was accepted. The company entered Camp Wright, near Pittsburgh, Penn., on the 11th day of June, 1861, and on the organization of the Eleventh Regiment Pennsylvania Reserves, a few days afterward, it became Company C of that regiment, by which name it was afterward known. It remained in Camp Wright until the battle of Bull Run, Va., July 21, 1861, when with its regiment, it was hurried to Washington City. It was formally mustered into the service of the United States on the 29th of July, 1861, and with the regiment and division went into camp at Tenallytown, north of Washington, where it remained until October, 1861, when, with the regiment, it crossed the Potomac, on the Chain Bridge, into Virginia, and took post with the division on the right of the Army of the Potomac. The history of the Eleventh Regiment Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps is its history. With its regiment it participated in all the battles in which the Pennsylvania Reserves were engaged, from Mechanicsville June 27, 1862, to Bethesda Church May 30 1864; its term of service (which was three years) having expired the day after the battle of Bethesda Church, it was relieved from duty on the front, and returned with the regiment and division to Pennsylvania, where on the 13th day of June, 1864, the survivors were mustered out at Pittsburgh.

* Rev. William T. DICKSON served as Chaplain of the regiment from August 28, 1861 to November 28, 1862.

During its term of service, it was actually engaged in the following battles, with casualties as follows:
