The One Hundred and Twelfth Eegiment of the
Ponusylvania Line, designated as the Second Artil-
lery, was raised under authority granted in October,
18G1, by the War Department to Charles Angeroth, of
Philadelphia, to recruit a battalion (afterwards ex-
tended to a regiment) of heavy artillery. Recruiting
was commenced at once, and proceeded rapidly. One
of the batteries ("K") was made up originally of
men from Fayette, and its ranks were afterwards very
largely recruited from this county.

The regiment was organized in the early part of
January, 1862, with Col. Charles Angeroth, Lieut.-
Col. John H. Obcrteufler, and Maj. William Caiulidus
as its field-officers.

On the 25tli of February the regiment (excepting
Companies D, G, and H, which had previously been
placed on duty at Fort Delaware, below Philadelphia)
was ordered to Washington, and upon its arrival was
reported to Gen. Abner Doubleday, by whom it was
assigned to duty in the fortifications north of the city.
The three companies from Fort Delaware rejoined the
others on the 19th of March, and for more than two
years from that time the regiment remained in the
Washington defenses north of the Potomac. On the
26th of March, 1864, it was transferred to the Vir-
ginia side, and placed to garrison Forts Marcy and
Ethan Allen, near the Chain Bridge.'

On the opening of the spring campaign of 1864
the regiment was ordered to the front, and accordingly
embarked at Washington on the 27th of May, and
proceeded to Port Royal, on the Rappahannock River,
where it arrived on the 28th. From that place it
marched across the country, and joined the Eighteenth
Army Corps, under Gen. W. F.Smith, at Cold Harbor
on the 4th of June. There it was formed into three
battalions in order to secure greater facility in ma-
noeuvring. These battalions with the Eighty-ninth
New York Regiment formed the Second Brigade in
the Second Division of the corps.

Moving with the army across the James River, the
regiment took its position in the lines investing the
city of Petersburg, and during the mouths of June,
July, and August performed constant and severe duty


in the trenches from tlie Appomattox River to the Je-
rusalem plank-road, being in that time reduced from
an effective strength of eighteen hundred and thirty-
six to less than nine hundred. This number was in-
creased early in September by an accession to its ranks
of about four hundred men, the remnant of the Sec-
ond Provisional Artillery Regiment, which liad orig-
inally been formed from its surplus strength.

On the 20th of September the regiment moved with
the Army of the James across the river, and took part
in the operations which resulted in the capture of
Fort Harrison, and in which the First and Second
Battalions sustained a loss of over two hundred in
killed, wounded, and prisoners. Among these was
Lieut. John B. Krepps, of Company K, wounded,
and Lieut. Presley Cannon, of the same company,
killed, September 29th.

The regiment remained in its position near Fort
Harrison until the 2d of December, when it was
ordered to Bermuda Hundred, its term of service
being then within about a month of its close. At
that place a large number of the men re-enlisted as
veterans ; these, with the recruits who joined, amount-
ing to over two thousand men. The regiment, how-
ever, was not called on to do much more fighting.
After the evacuation of Petersburg by the enemy it
was ordered to duty in that city, and after the surren-
der of Lee's army the several companies of the Second
were distributed through the lower counties of Vir-
ginia to maintain order, and remained on this duty
till the beginning of 1866. On the 29th of January
in that year it was mustered out of service at City
Point, Va., and was soon after transported to Phila-
delphia, where its men were discharged on the 16th
of February. |

\V.\R OF THE KEDELI.IOX— ('■„„(,■„„,,/).
Hundred and Sixteenth and One Hundred and Forly-second Regi-

The One Hundred and Sixteenth Regiment was
formed in the summer of 1862, its rendezvous being
at Jones' Woods, near the city of Philadelphia. One
distinctively Fayette County company ("K") was
embraced in its organization. The original field-
officers of the regiment were Col. Dennis Heenan,
Lieut.-Col. St. Clair A. Mulholland, and Maj. George
H. Bardwell.

Before the ranks of the regiment had been filled
("A," " F," and " I" companies being still but par-
tially recruited), on the 31st of August, it was ordered
to move forward at once to the front. Under this
order it moved (about seven hundred strong) to Wash-
ington, D. C, where it received arms and camp equip-
age, and marched thence to Rockville, Md., where
it was reported to Maj.-Gen. D. N. Couch. It had
been hastened to the field on account of the forced
retreat of Gen. N. -P. Banks down the Shenandoah
Valley, and the consequent advance of the enemy in
that direction, but before it arrived at Rockville the
immediate danger had passed, and Gen. Couch there-
upon ordered it back to Washington, whence, on the
21st of September, it moved across the Potomac and
to Fairfax Court-House, where it came under com-
mand of Gen. Sigel.

Ou the 6th of October it marched from Fairfax and
proceeded to Harper's Ferry, where it was incorpo-
rated with Gen. T. F. Meagher's " Irish Brigade," of
which the other regiments were the Twenty-ninth,
Sixty-third, Sixty-ninth, and Eighty-eighth New
York Volunteers. This brigade was the Second
of Gen. W. S. Hancock's (First) division of the
Second Corps, commanded by Gen. Couch.

The regiment, after having had a little experience
under a rather sharp artillery fire for about an hour,
