Penna., by James Elder, captain 11th Penna. Infantry, mustering officer.
Captain Downey was detailed as captain of provost guard of the Third Division of the Fifth Corps, about December 1, 1862. First Lieut. Stackhouse was in command of Company A thereafter. For further history of the 133d Regiment refer to extended articles on the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville.
ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SIXTH PENNSYLVANIA INFANTRY,
COL. THOMAS M. BAYNE.
Capt. Josiah K. Hite's Company K from Johnstown was in this regiment. Companies E, F, G and H came from Allegheny county; A and D from Tioga; C from Dauphin; I from Crawford, Center and Columbia counties. The regiment was organized at Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, August 20, 1862. On the 29th it was sent to Fort Lincoln, defenses of Washington City. September 27 it was at the Chain Bridge, and within a few days was taken into the city of Washington. The regiment was then sent to Frederick, Maryland, thence to Antietam, where it was assigned to the Second Brigade, Second Division, First Corps, and accompanied McClellan to Fredericksburg.
Under Gen. Meade the regiment was actively engaged in the battle at Hamilton's Crossing, below the city, and in that day's fight, December 13, 1862, lost one hundred and forty men. It was in the Mud March, and accompanied Hooker's forces to Chancellorsville, where it was again actively engaged. The roster of the company is followed by an abstract of S. Dean Canan's journal of that campaign, which is valuable and interesting in showing the marches and engagements, and the visit of Mr. Lincoln to the Army of the Potomac at Fredericksburg.
