To end our program year, on Sunday, October 15 at 2pm, our President and local historian, Tim Singleton will present a program on the 151st Pennsylvania Regiment. This was a Union Army regiment serving for a term of nine months during the Civil War. The regiment sustained seventy-six percent casualties in the Battle of Gettysburg, its only major engagement. Following the war, it also became known as “The Schoolteachers’ Regiment” due to the war-time enrollment of at least sixty teachers in the regiment. The 151st Regiment was raised from points across the Keystone State including Milford, PA in Pike County.
