Every morning we could see that the serpentine trench was a little nearer the sand fort than the day before. Two or three days ago our ditch was within 50 yards of it. Day before yesterday, the star and stripes were within 30 yards and the Ironsides used her guns all day to keep the sharpshooters in Wagner from firing into the trenches…This morning was the time fixed upon for the final attack.

Wagner had been vacated…" with several pages of further battle information; faulty at left, Fine and scarce cover.

The 126th Pennsylvania was organized at Harrisburg in Augu st, 1862, departing for Washington on August 15, 1862. They were on duty in the defences of Washington until September 12, when they were transferred to Sharpsburg, Md. They were mustered out in May of 1863.
