The December muster of the First Defenders Civil War Round Table will close out 2019 with a presentation on the 128th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. Recruited in part from Berks County, the 128th was a nine-month regiment that quickly “saw the elephant” at Antietam before passing even a full month in uniform. Before ending its term of service in May 1863, it would again be in the vortex of battle at Chancellorsville, and may have indirectly caused the friendly-fire wounding of “Stonewall” Jackson. More information can be found on our Events page.
