Union Battle Unit Details -- Five Forks & Appomattox House
This regiment, although mustered into the service as a West Virginia unit, was recruited mainly in Ohio. It was organized August 1, 1861, in Southern Ohio by Colonel William M. Bolles. Ohio's Governor declined the muster of the Regiment, stating he was under orders to commission no more cavalry. Application was made to Governor F.R. Pierpoint, provisional Governor of the portion of Virginia now known as West Virginia. With the consent of the Secretary of War, Pierpoint accepted the organization and ordered it into camp at Parkersburg. It was mustered as the Second Regiment of Loyal Virginia Cavalry on November 8, 1861. The Regiment operated about Western Virginia until July 1864 when it moved to the Shenandoah Valley. It fought at Kearnstown, Chambersburg, Opequan, Fisher's Hill, Cedar Creek, Five Forks, Sailor's Creek, Appomattox Station and was at Appomattox during the surrender of the Confederate Army. The Regiment led the Army of the Potomac in the Grand Review at Washington. It then travelled to Wheeling and was mustered out on the 4th of July 1865. Regiment lost during service 4 Officers and 77 Enlisted men killed and mortally wounded and 115 Enlisted men by disease. Total 196.
Name list of veteran burials in Blair, Nebraska.
His brother John may have claimed his by himself or someone who is related directly to him. Three medals shown on a picture are his two brothers - Anthony and Joseph. Each medal has their name and regiment embossed along the edge. As of this date (10/10/2014) no photographs of those 4 Civil War veterans are known, apparently, to exist, a number of photographs of their medals have come to light from their Civil War regiment, the 2nd West Virginia cavalry. This unit distinguished itself during the war at places well known and obscure. Barlow Library does not have any of those brothers named except for other fellow veterans on the wall.
