EFFECT OF INFLATED CURRENCY.

During the war the government issued
large amounts of paper money, which were
generally understood to be irredeemable except
in case of the preservation of the Union.
Starting at par, or nearly so, this currency de-
preciated until at one time it was worth, in
gold, only forty cents on the dollar. The fol-
lowing table ot retail prices, compiled from
the Erie papers, shows how the cost of living
advanced in consequence of the depreciated

Brtef History of the Erie County
Regimexts.

THE three months' REGIMENT.

This regiment was recruited under a call
issued on the 21st of April, 1861, by Capt.
John W. McLane, who had served in the
Mexican war, and at the breaking out of the
rebellion was in command of the Wayne Guard
at Erie. Twelve hundred men responded to
the call in four days, of whom ten companies
of seventy-seven men each were accepted.
The regiment was mainly recruited from Erie
and Crawford counties. It went into camp
on a piece of vacant ground in Erie city, on
the east side of Parade street, near the inter-
section of Sixth, which was duly christened
Camp Waj'ne. Field officers were elected on
the 27th of April. The regiment proceeded
by rail to Pittsburg on Wednesday, May 1,
and camped along the Allegheny river a short
distance above the city. Being the first or-
ganized regiment that had reached the city, it
was received with much curiosity and enthu-
siasm, and the people vied with each other in
deeds of kindness to both officers and men.
After six weeks spent in idleness at Camp
Wilkins, as its first quarters were known, the
regiment was moved to Hulton Station, twelve
miles further up the Alleghenv, where a gene-
ral rendezvous had been established for the
troops of Western Pennsylvania, under the
name of Camp Wright. Here the men re-
ceived muskets and were carefully drilled, but
labored under much disadvantage in target
practice for want of suitable ammunition.
The term of enlistment of the regiment expired
without its having been mustered into the
United States service. It returned to Erie on
the 20th of July.

The following were the principal officers
of the regiment :

NELSON'S BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY



EIGHTY-THIRD REGIMENT.

On the return of the three months' regi-
ment Col. McLane immediately announced
his purpose of raising another regiment for
three years. Authority for this purpose was
received on the 24th of July, 1861, and in less
than five weeks the full complement of 1,000
men had enlisted, mainly from the counties
of Erie, Crawford, Warren and Forest. Of
these, nearly 300 had been members of the
three months' regiment. The rendezvous was
on the old fair grounds east of Erie, and the
regiment was mustered into the United States
service on the 8th of September. It left for
Washington on the 16th of September, ac-
companied by Mehl's Band, where it was as-
signed to the Third brigade of Porter's divi-
sion, under command of Gen. Butterfield.
The regiment soon attained to a high reputa-
tion for drill and soldierly appearance. On
one occasion Gen. McClellan said to Col. Mc-
Lane : "I congratulate you upon having one
of the very best regiments in the army." Gen.
Butterfield also congratulated and commended
the regiment in a general order.

The regiment remained in camp in front
of Washington until the 8th of March, 1862,
when orders were received for the whole army
to move. It took part in the reconnoissance
toward Big Bethel and the siege of Yorktown,
and was prominently engaged in the battles
of Hanover Court House, Gaines' Mill, Mal-
vern Hill and most of the desperate encoun-
ters along and in the vicinity of the Chicka-
hominy. At Gaines' Mill on the 27th of June
Col. McLane was killed. On the 11th of" Au-
gust Mehl's Band, which had been with the
regiment to that date, was discharged by gen-
eral order, and returned to Erie.

When the army moved north the Eighty-
third accompanied it, and participated in
Pope's campaign, Antietam, Fredericksburg,
Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Spottsylvania,
and, in fact, nearly every battle that was
fought down to the closing scene at Appo-
mattox. Col. Vincent, who had succeeded
Col. McLane, and who was at the time in
command of the brigade, fell, mortally
wounded, at Gettysburg on the 2d of July,
1868. He had been appointed a Brigadier
General, but the news of his promotion did
not reach the regiment until after his death.
After Gettysburg the regiment, which had



been reduced by losses in battle and sickness
to but 200 of its original members, was en-
larged to the extent of some 400 drafted men
and substitutes, and it received accessions
from time to time sufficient to swell its total
roll to about 2,600.

It was mustered out of tiie service at
Washington on the 28th of June, 1865, and
formally disbanded on the 4th of July at Har-
risburg. The members of the regiment re-
turned to their homes in small bodies, but
their welcome was none the less warm and
cheering. In the official history of Pennsyl-
vania volunteers, published by the Common-
wealth, it is stated that the Eighty-third Regi-
ment was engaged in twenty-five battles,
" more by two than any other Pennsylvania
Infantry regiment."

ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVENTH REGIMENT.

While the Eighty-third regiment was or-
ganizing, application was made to the Secre-
tary of War by Matthias Schlaudecker, of
Erie, who had served as Major of the three
months' regiment, for authority to recruit a
new infantry regiment for the three years'
service. His request was granted on the 2d
of September, 1861, a rendezvous was at once
established at the old fair ground, and on the
24th of January, 1862, the ranks being full, a
regimental organization was effected. The



NELSON'S BIOORAPHICAL DICTIONARY



regiment left for Harrisburg on the 25th, by
way of Cleveland and Pittsburg, reaching the
State capital on the 27th. There it was fur-
nished with colors, arms and equipments, and
on the 1st of March proceeded to Baltimore.

Its first serious engagement was on the 9th
of August, at Cedar Mountain, where it lost
nineteen killed, sixty-one wounded and thir-
teen missing. From that time to the 24th of
September, 1868, when the regiment was
transferred to Tennessee, it was constantly
connected with the Army of the Potomac, and
participated in nearly all of the battles in Vir-
ginia and Maryland, including Antietam,
Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. While sta-
tioned at Acquia Creek it was one of fifteen
regiments specially commended by General
Hooker in his general order of March 3. Col.
Schlaudecker was honorably discharged in
November, 1862, and the other field officers
were duly promoted.

The regiment joined Rosecrans' army at
Murfreesboro on the 6th of October, 1863, and
took a conspicuous part in the movement upon
Lookout ISIountain. In December, most of
its members enlisted for a second term, and
were given a furlough to come home, arriving
at Erie the 14th of January, 1864. On return-
ing to the scene of war in the Southwest, the
regiment took part in the march upon Atlanta,
being ore of the first to enter that city. Dur-
ing the severe fighting before the capture of
Atlanta, Col. Cobham was shot, and died on
the field of battle. The regiment performed
provost duty in Atlanta some two months,
when it joined the main body of the army in
Sherman's famous " march to the sea." At
Goldsboro, N. C, the One Hundred and
Ninth and One Hundred and Eleventh regi-
ments, which had served side by side since
1862, were consolidated, with 885 members,
retaining the latter title. It was mustered out
of service at Washington on the 19th of July,
1865, and the Northwestern Pennsylvania por-
tion of the regiment reached Erie on the 27th
of the same month, where, after a grand re-
ception, the gallant veterans quietly separated
for their respective homes. Below is a list of

ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-FIFTH REGIMENT.

A fourth regiment, which received the
title of the One Hundred and Forty -fifth, was
recruited during the summer and fall of 1862,
having its rendezvous at the same camp which



I had been used by the Eighty-third and One

j Hundred and Eleventh regiments. The date

of its organization, September 5, 1862, was

j one of the most critical in the history of the

j war. The regiment was accordingly hurried

; forward without arms and with little training

in militarj' duty. Leaving Erie on the 11th

of September, it reached Chambersburg by

way of Buffalo and Elmira within thirty-six

I hours, was there furnished with arms, and in

i two days more was within sound of the

I enemy's guns at Antietam. About noon on

the 17th the regiment joined the extreme

right of the Union line, and rendered good

service in preventing a flank movement of the

enemy. After the battle it was one of the

detail to bury the dead, some of whom had

lain upon the field of battle four days. The

exposure to which the regiment had been

thus suddenly subjected told with serious

effect upon many of the men, so that between

200 and 800 were disqualified for duty within

a mouth after it was ordered to the front.

Quite a number died or were permanently

disabled. The regiment was assigned to the

First Brigade, First Division, of the Second

Corps.

On the 13th of December the One Hun-
dred and Forty-fifth took part in the terrible
charge at Fredericksburg, under the lead of
Gen. Hancock. The division to which it be-
longed was composed of 5,000 men, 2,000 of
whom fell in that single charge. Of the 556
members of the One Hundred and Forty-fifth
who crossed the river, 226 were either killed
or wounded. At Chancellorsville a detail of
150 men from the One Hundred and Forty-
i fifth was ordered to the relief of the skirmish
line, and, after some hard fighting, failing to
receive the command to retire, were mostly
captured. The regiment entered the battle of
Gettysburg 200 strong, and lost upward of
eighty in killed and wounded. Returning to
Virginia, it participated in nearly all of the
marches and engagernents of the Union army
. until the winter of 1863 brought the cam-
1 paign to a close.

1 The renewal of operations in May, 1864,
found the regiment recruited almost to its
I original strength. From this date the historj'
of the Arm)- of Virginia, with its never-ceas-
ing marches and well-nigh daily battles, is
equally the history of the regiment. In the
charge in front of Petersburg, the regiment



214



J^SLSOSf'S BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONABT



had about fifty killed and wounded, and some
ninety fell into the hands of the enemy. The
remainder of the men were almost constantly
under fire during the balance of the season.
In the spring campaign of 1865 the regiment
did good service with Sheridan.

It was mustered out of the service on the
31st of May, and returned to Erie on the 5th
of June, where it was welcomed with the
honors it so richly deserved.
