Ephraim Cornman recruited a company that enlisted into state service at Carlisle September 5, 1862. He was elected captain of Co. D, 1st Pennsylvania Infantry Militia, a regiment that disbanded the following September 24 after the battle of Antietam ended the crisis. The regiment was not involved in any fighting and never left the state. (Forwarded by contributor Dennis Brandt)
