Synopsis: The 124th New York Volunteer Infantry, known as the Orange Blossom Regiment, was one of the hardest fighting units in the Army of the Potomac. This unit, which was considered an elite regiment, served in the Third Corps, and lost heavily in the fighting for Devil's Den at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863. The regimental commander, Col. Augustus Van Horn Ellis, and his second-in-command, Maj. James Cromwell, were both killed in action that day, after Ellis proclaimed, "The men must see us today." Their final commander, Col. Charles H. Weygant, published a superb regimental history of this fine regiment in 1877. Copes of the original history are very rare. Ironclad Publishing is pleased to have this new addition of Weygant's classic regimental, with a new introduction by historian Garry E Adelman. This replica reprint incorporates all of Weygant's original history, including regimental rosters, and once again makes it available to the general public at an affordable price.
