misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Day–by-day with the 123d Pennsylvania Volunteers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Register online or call 724.941.9430 #1.

Christopher D. George will discuss his book, Day-by-day with the 123d Pennsylvania Volunteers: A Nine-month Civil War Regiment from Allegheny County. The formation of this regiment was sparked by a devout and patriotic pastor from Allegheny City (now known as the North Side) who inspired the trust and allegiance of men from all over the Pittsburgh region. What started as a company of “Christian Soldiers” quickly swelled to an entire regiment of men eager to “whip up the rebs” and win the war for the North. This multi-layered chronicle details the unlikely story of these men through their own words as well as the extensive day-by-day coverage they received in the local newspapers. As the North struggled through some of its darkest days, the 123d PVI proudly served in the Army of the Potomac until its celebrated return home to Allegheny County.

Christopher D. George, a former resident of the 2nd Ward of Allegheny City, is a graduate of both the University of Cincinnati and the University of Pittsburgh. He teaches in the Upper St. Clair School District near Pittsburgh, PA. An avid genealogist, he has spent nearly 20 years researching his Great-Great-Grandfather and the time he served as a member of the 123d Pennsylvania Volunteers.
