149th Pennsylvania
Volunteer Infantry Regiment
2nd Brigade, 3rd Division, 1st Army Corps

As part of the I Corps at Gettysburg, Stone's (Bucktail) Brigade fought one of the most desperate actions of the battle.

The defense of the McPherson farm bought valuable time for more Union units to arrive in the area and deploy for the ultimate victory.

The Bucktail Brigade consisted of the 143rd, 149th, and 150th Pennsylvania Volunteers.
