1) 83rd Pennsylvania Infantry2) ImagesSpoilerOfficer and EnlistedSergent Figurines with examples[close]3) Historical BackgroundSpoilerThe 83rd Pennsylvania was a volunteer infantry regiment in the Union Army during the American Civil War. They participated in almost every major battle in the East, including Seven Days Battles, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Petersburg and Appomattox Court House.As one of four regiments in the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, V Corps, Army of the Potomac, they fought alongside the 20th Maine, 44th New York, and the 16th Michigan in the spirited defense of Little Round Top in which regiment commander Colonel Strong Vincent was mortally wounded.The 83rd Pennsylvania suffered the second-highest number of battle deaths among Union Army infantry regiments during the war, behind only the 5th New Hampshire.During Gettysburg, they were the regiment next to the 20th Maine. They held the top of Little Round Top where the Colonel, Strong Vincent mounted a large boulder, Vincent brandished a riding crop given to him by his wife and shouted to his men "Don't give an inch!" A bullet struck him through the thigh and the groin and he fell. Due to the determination of the 20th Maine, the 44th New York, the 83rd Pennsylvania and the 16th Michigan Infantry Regiments, the Union line held against the Confederate onslaught. Vincent was carried from the hill to a nearby farm, where he lay dying for the next five days, unable to be transported home due to the severity of his injury.The commander of the Army of the Potomac, Maj. Gen. George G. Meade, recommended Vincent for promotion to brigadier general on the evening of July 2. The promotion was dated July 3, 1863, but it is doubtful that Vincent knew about the honor before he died. The promotion was not approved by Congress, and it still hasn't been discussed.
