During the American Civil War, more than two hundred regiments were supplied by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Federal service in the suppression of the “Great Rebellion.” Of all those Pennsylvania units that served through the long conflict from 1861-1865, only one suffered a greater loss of life during their term of service than the 105th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. Hailing from the lumber region of Western Pennsylvania, the regiment would carry the sobriquet of “Wildcats” into action on nearly every battlefield in the eastern theater of the war. Their patriotism, leadership, courage and perseverance were tested to the utmost in a horrible gauntlet that included four years’ worth of deadly battles. Many of these men never survived to tell about their experiences at places like Fair Oaks, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, or Petersburg. This is their remarkable story.
