Book Description White Mane. Book Condition: BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Hardcover in Dust Jacket - 273pp - The 77th New York or Bemis Heights Regiment was probably the only Civil War unit to be numbered for sentimental reasons. Organized by Congressman James McKean, they were recruited from Essex, Fulton, and primarily Saratoga Counties. Leaving home on Thanksgiving Day in 1861, the first action for boys from Bemis Heights was in the Peninsular Campaign. Assigned to the Third Brigade of the Second Division along with the infamous Vermont Brigade, their division, part of the VI Corps, was the best in the army. The regiment captured two cannons in the second battle of Fredericksburg. At the Wilderness, Brigadier General John B. Gordonís assault stopped when it reached the 77thís brigade. At Spotsylvania the 77th was picked as one of the best units to participate in Uptonís Charge, and this list continues on through the entire war. Extensively researched, the pages of the book are filled with firsthand accounts. During the bloodiest war in Americaís history, bonds formed when these men touched elbows with one another in over 50 battles. Drinking from the same canteen and smoking from the same pouch produced ties that were strong enough to keep them coming back for 50 annual reunions A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!.
