From the publisher: “The 119th was involved in every major campaign fought by the Army of the Potomac, from Fredericksburg to Appomattox, as well as serving with the famed Phil Sheridan in the Shenandoah Campaign of 1864. Activated in August of 1862, the regiment fought at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, and the Siege of Petersburg. In addition, as a component of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, Sixth Corps, the Philadelphians were also an integral part of the stunning Union victories at Rappanhannock Station, Third Winchester, the capture of Petersburg, and Sailor's Creek. Although providing new detail concerning tactics and troop movements in those conflicts, the special emphasis of this work is on the ‘rough’ circumstances which the Gray Reserves were forced to endure on a ‘regular’ basis. The experiences of the Philadelphians who belonged to the 119th Pennsylvania epitomize what all members of the Army of the Potomac experienced in their effort to save the Union.”
