lorsville, Gettysburg, Mission Ridge, Knoxville, Atlanta, Resaca, Dallas, Pine Knob, Lost Moun-
tain, Pine Tree Creek, Savannah and Goldsboro. The following history of the colors of this
regiment is furnished by a comrade : The colors of the 134th were presented at New York
City by Governor Horatio Seymour, in behalf of the State of New York, and were carried
by the regiment through all its skirmishes, battles and marches. At Gettysburg they were car-
ried by Sergeants Carroll and Seaman. Sergeant Seaman received a severe wound from a min-
nie ball in the right arm, and was unable to bring the regimental colors from the field. At this
critical moment Carroll seized both colors , and started for the Cemetery Heights, where the Corps
had retired and were taking position, but had not proceeded far before he received three
severe wounds, which laid him prostrate. The Confederates were close behind and bent upon
obtaining the colors, but they were foiled. A gallant officer seized the National colors and
bore them off, and Sergeant Carroll tore the State color from its staff, and wound it round
his body underneath his clothing, where he kept it for four days, during which time he was a
prisonor. and at the expiration of which he returned them to the regiment. For this act of
gallantry Sergeant Carroll received the thanks of the commanding General, and also the
thanks of the entire regiment. Both Color Sergeants being now disabled, new ones were ap-
pointed in the persons of Sergeants Bradt and Rosa. The last named was killed at the Battle
of Peach Tree Creek, Ga., and his place filled by Sergeant Mickle. At the Siege of Savannah,
Ga. , Sergeant Bradt was severely wounded, and Sergeant Dey was appointed to the vacancy.
By these Sergeants they were carried through the campaign of the Carolinas and in the grand
review at Washington, at which latter place they were cheered along the whola line of march.
They were brought to Albany and deposited in the Hall of Military Records, where they
remain as lasting mementos of the bravery and patriotism of the sons of Schenectady and
Schoharie.
