3225 - THE 155TH NEW YORK INFANTRY, CORCORAN'S IRISH BRIGADE, in October 1862, more than 400 Buffalo men, most of them Irish, heeded President Abraham Lincoln's call for additional volunteers during the Civil War and crowded into Fort Porter near the present day Peace Bridge to become the basis of the 155th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment part of Corcoran's Irish Legion 2nd Division 2nd Corps. The 155th - marching under a green banner emblazoned with the Harp of Erin - journeyed to Staten Island where it was consolidated with other units so that ultimately the regiment contained only two companies from Buffalo; another two companies became part of the 164th New York. The 155th moved south into Virginia where, on Jan. 30, 1863, it saw its first action in what was to become known as the Battle of Deserted House near Suffolk, VA. Months of mind-numbing monotony mixed with hardships caused by weather and disease were to follow. In the spring of 1864, it became part of the Army of the Potomac and at the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse suffered about 60 casualties. More engagements resulted in further losses and the assault on Cold Harbor, VA, cost the 155th more than 160 men. Tipping was to refer to the frontal assault as "murder, not war." During the attack on Petersburg in June 1864, the 155th was riddled with casualties at the rate of 50 percent, or about 80 men, and was soon down to a mere 75 men. By July 1864, only 41 remained of the 820 who had arrived at Suffolk in December of 1862, according to the history. The 155th participated in 16 battles or campaigns and was present on April 9, 1865, for the Confederate surrender at Appomattox. On July 15, 1865, the 155th New York Volunteers were officially mustered out of service. The US flag remnants were part of the effects of Captain Joseph F. Eustice of the 155th NY who distinguished himself at the Battle of Hatcher's Run and was carried by that unit.

THE 61ST PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS ARMY OF THE POTOMAC, The flag remnant above came from one of the Regimental Flags used by the 61st Pennsylvania Volunteers during the Civil War. While this regiment did not win specific acclaim for turning the course of a battle, it was a workhorse unit that participated in the vast majority of the battles fought by the Army of the Potomac and it also fought briefly in the Army of the Shenandoah. The major battles the unit fought in were: Fair Oaks, Malvern Hill, Fredericksburg, Antietam, Marye's Heights, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Winchester, Cedar Creek, Gettysburg, Petersburg, and Appomattox Court House. At Fair Oaks, the unit was mauled by Micah Jenkins' Confederates and lost 263 men and all the field officers were killed, wounded, or captured. The unit lost 151 men at the Wilderness and 139 at Spotsylvania. The 61st lost more officers in combat than any other Federal regiment and the battle deaths were the 15th highest of the 2000 Federal regiments that fought in the War. In spite of tremendous losses the 61st never lost a battle flag and was mustered out in Pittsburg ending the tragedy and suffering of its tired men. The copy photo above shows Federal troops staging before the Battle of Fair Oaks where the 61st suffered their greatest losses in soldiers and officers. (a) fragments from the flag.............................................$125.00     (b) partial gold painted star......................$200.00

THE AGE OF CUSTER, George Armstrong Custer was an aggressive cavalry commander during the Civil War leading his Michigan Brigade into battle such as he did at Gettysburg. For his actions, he was made a Major General at age 23. Other battles he and his brigade took part in were the Wilderness, Yellow Tavern, Trevelian Station, the Valley Campaigns of 1864, and the final campaign stopping Lee from moving south from Appomattox. After the War, he was made Lt. Colonel of the 7th U.S. Cavalry in the West and was killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn by a force of Indians consisting of Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho led by Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. The copy photo above shows Custer leading his men into the Black Hills in the Dakotas. Custer is seen in the light colored shirt. The brass cavalry insignia is the model 1873 crossed sabers, the type worn by the cavalry during the Indian Wars. The flag remnant dates from the Civil War (1863-65) when Custer was made famous for his daring cavalry charges. 11"X14" unframed.....................................................$125.00
