Fall Sunday Afternoon Program – October 6, 2024

LBG Tim Pierce’s 6 October 2024 Pennsylvania Reserves

This walk will be on the Pennsylvania Reserves. The Reserves were a fighting force composed solely of soldiers from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. At the beginning of the war more men from all around Pennsylvania answered the call for volunteers than the federal government called for. Governor Andrew Curtain, concerned for his southern border, chose to swear the men into Pennsylvania service. They were eventually requested for Federal service. The Reserves were a unique division and they had the opportunity to serve under some of the premier commanders in the army including John Reynolds, and George Meade. On this walk we will explore some of the history of the reserves and then focus on their July 2nd experiences on Little and Big Round Tops, Plum Run Valley, and the Wheatfield. We will begin on the northern slope of Little Round Top, then charge down Little Round Top, through the valley of death, to the edge of the Wheatfield.
