About the 42nd Pennsylvania

The 42nd Pennsylvania, 2nd Battalion, Co. E and Co. F, are a current standing battalion of infantry that are a well trained and disciplined, realism unit for War of Rights. We plan to carry this ethos and experience over to Battle Cry of Freedom. We have 1 or 2 events a week, on the weekends, as well as 1 training session, resulting in a maximum commitment of 3 events a week. The battalion plays in both line and skirmish formations due to the regiment being armed with the Sharps Rifles and also due to the historic unit repeatedly throwing the rule book out the window. The Officers of the battalion hold a pool of knowledge and skills whilst the NCOs walk down their own path of specialization to create a team able to train men in all forms of combat. Players are recruited from all across the community with a wide range of different abilities; all are welcome in the 42nd Pennsylvania as long as you keep to the rules.

All troops join the 42nd Pennsylvania as a Volunteer, the "Recruit" rank of our battalion. This is not for anyone who has that silly inwards desire to climb the ranks. A few will be given the chance to advance through the ranks but do not expect a bunch of enlisted possitons to climb. Those looking to join must understand that though this is a game, we are a realism unit. This means a serious environment when conducting ourselves formally. Officers must be addressed as 'Sir' and NCOs by their formal rank. That is not to say however that there won't be jokes and laughs and a bit of Tom foolery when marching about the field. You will get yelled at by a Drill Instructor in boot camp when you join, you can count on that. Outside of events and other formal occasions a large amount of the RP will be ditched so as to make sure that the environment does not become suffocating. We aim to make it so that instead of going "Arg I have an event I have to attend" you go "I'm looking forward to the next event!"

"The 42nd, we put the 'Civil' in the Civil War." - First Lieutenant Pinckney


History of the Regiment
Formation

The Forty Second Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, also known as the the 13th Pennsylvania Reserve Regiment, 1st Pennsylvania Rifles, Kane's Rifles, or simply the "Bucktails," was a volunteer infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was a part of the famed Pennsylvania Reserve division in the Army of the Potomac for much of the early and middle parts of the war, and served in the Eastern Theater in a number of important battles, including Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg.

The regiment first formed in April 1861, when Thomas L. Kane sought permission to raise a company of riflemen from among the hardy woodsmen of McKean County. Each man who came to the regiment's rendezvous point wore civilian clothes and a buck's tail in his hat-a symbol of his marksmanship.

Indeed, the marksman test for joining the unit was unique at this early stage of the war. Most volunteers who joined the Union army did not have much proficiency with a weapon, let alone the newfangled rifled-muskets first introduced in the 1850s. The "Rifles" designation was a holdover from the days when soldiers who carried rifled weapons were a special outfit, and the Bucktails carried breech-loading Model 1859 Sharps Rifles, normally only issued to sharpshooters.

The 42nd Pennsylvania was mustered at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on June 21, 1861. Thomas L. Kane was elected colonel, Charles John Biddle as lieutenant colonel, and Roy Stone as major. Kane, as a civilian, wanted to have Biddle, a Mexican War Veteran, be Colonel instead, and a second election was held, granting Kane his wish. The unit served as part of the Pennsylvania Reserves for the majority of its service with the Union Army.


War

The 42nd were first assigned to garrison duty in Maryland. On July 12 a scouting party under Kane of sixty men were surrounded by cavalry at New Creek Village, but fought them off, killing eight Confederates and wounding sixteen. After receiving reinforcements, Kane moved to Ridgeville which he captured after a skirmish.

In the fall, it was assigned to the V Corps of the Army of the Potomac, then serving in the Shenandoah Valley. On October 20, it marched to Dranesville, where Colonel Kane was wounded in the mouth while repulsing the Confederates. During a reorganisation of the regiment in January 1862, Hugh W. McNeil was elected Colonel and Kane Lieutenant Colonel, with Stone remaining Major. Biddle had resigned to take his place in Congress.

During the Peninsula Campaign, the Pennsylvania Reserves division was assigned as part of the I Corps; only part of the regiment went to the Peninsula, Companies C, G, H, and I, under the command of Kane, remaining in the Valley. This provisional battalion fought in several battles of the 1862 Valley campaign. During the June 6th Battle of Harrisonburg, in an attempt to rescue a Captain Haines and his wounded men of the 1st New Jersey Cavalry, the regiment held off Steuart's Brigade, including the 44th Virginia Infantry, the 58th Virginia Infantry, the 1st Maryland Infantry, CSA, and a Louisiana regiment, for an hour, killing General Turner Ashby. Colonel Kane was captured in the retreat. They had lost 52 men, and Confederates had lost over 500.

The other six companies went under Major Stone. During the retreat from Richmond, they lost company in a swamp, then fought at Gaines Mill. Two other companies were lost during the retreat. At the retreat to Harrison's Landing, Stone and his men constructed a bridge over a stream, possibly saving the Union army. Stone took command of a different regiment after this. In early September, the two battalions were re-united under the command of McNeil, who had been sick; the Pennsylvania Reserve Division, now designated as the Third Division of the I Corps of the Army of the Potomac. At Bull Run, Kane was promoted to Brigadier General for covering Pope's retreat. His position was filled by Edward Irvin. The new Major was Alanson Niles. The regiment suffered extreme losses at Antietam, including Colonel McNeill.

The new commander was Charles Taylor, who had been captured twice by Confederates. They participated in the disastrous assault on Fredericksburg. Irwin resigned from injury, and Niles became Lieutenant Colonel. At Gettysburg, Niles was wounded, and Taylor was killed at Little Round Top, leaving Major Hartshorn in command. They then marched to Spotslyvania for their final battle. The regiment was mustered out of service on June 11, 1864. Those who had reenlisted as Veteran Volunteers were transferred to the 190th Pennsylvania.

Killed and mortally wounded: 11 officers, 151 enlisted men
Died of disease: 2 officers, 88 enlisted men
Total: 13 officers, 239 enlisted men
