Harvey was from Pike Township and was 19 years old when mustered into the service by a Lieutenant Stetson. This followed Captain Watkins enrolling him, for a 3 year term 9 days earlier, on August 13, 1862. At the battle of Gettysburg, his right arm was broken below the elbow July 2, 1863. He received a promotion to Corporal and another promotion to Lieutenant of the 10th Louisiana Colored Troops. He passed away in 1875 and is buried in Stevensville Cemetery, Stevens Township, Bradford County, Pa.

Note: There is confusion as to his first name being Henry as it is listed that way in the Boys In Blue.

Note: There is more confusion revolving around this man as the Pa Muster Rolls has him discharged December 22, 1863 by order of Major General Couch.

Note: Further confusion rests with whether his arm or Henry Ustick Jones' arm was broken at Gettysburg. The Bradford Argus reported Harvey's arm and the History reported Henry's arm.
