HTP EP 56: The Pennsylvania Reserves w/ Eric Mohney

The History Things Podcast

After a rollicking adventure on the water the boys are back in their element, the American Civil War. This time they are hosting Eric Money, formally of the Addressing Gettysburg podcast to discuss the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps! Better known as the Pennsylvania Reserves, these were enthusiastic patriots who signed up to serve the Nation even after Pennsylvania had hit it’s initial quota of troops to send to the field.

It was a good thing too! As the PA Reserves were called upon to help bolster a sagging Union in late 1861 and served honorably for the rest of the war. Join us as Eric takes us on a deep dive through the history of the PA Reserves, who they were, how they were formed and the many famous engagements they fought through. It’s Pennsylvania’s time in the spotlight!
