And speaking of the 153rd PA (thanks, Joe!). . .

Welcome, Bucktail, from another Pennsylvanian! I grew up in Quakertown, frequented Allentown quite often, and have ancestors from Saucon Valley, one of which served in the 153rd PA, Co. C. He was wounded on Day 1 at Gettysburg (Barlow Knoll)died 27 days later in Harrisburg.

Enjoy the forum--there are a lot of good and knowledgeable people here!

Adam Epler of Company E of the 151st PA fought at Gettysburg and survived to see his company muster out later in the month. With the losses the 151st suffered (367 out of 478 men were casualties), it is a wonder that he survived.
