CHAPTER XI.

TIOGA COUNTY’S PATRIOTISM IN THE CIVIL WAR---

ROLLS OF COMMISSIONED OFFICERS.

Tioga county was not settled or formed until some years after the close of the Revolutionary war, and consequently, none of her sons were actors in those scenes which "tried men’s souls." A number of the old veterans came to the county as pioneers and identified themselves with it’s early settlement, and now they sleep within its borders.

During the war of 1812 a number went forth to battle, and when the British burned Buffalo, and a messenger came riding through the valley of the Tioga, the hardy pioneer threw down his ax and hastened to the frontier.

But it was reserved until 1861 for the sons of Tioga to display their courage and the love of country. There were then about 32,000 inhabitants in the county and about 4,000 between the ages of eighteen and forty-five, liable for military duty. Over 2,000 of that number went into the Union army, and were engaged on the battle fields from the Pennsylvania line to the Gulf of Mexico, wherever the rebellion existed. Many lie buried in southern soil, who died on the field of battle, in hospital, or in prison, and many returned with honorable wounds and honorable records. Every mail from the south and every click of the telegraph was watched with intense anxiety by those at home who had fathers, brothers and husbands in the great and terrible struggle with secession; and scarcely a day passed that either the mail or the telegraph did not bring sad news from the front, of some loved one who had passed away in the battle for the life of the nation. Scarcely a family in Tioga county but had some near and dear friend in the army. The anxiety and suspense were terrible.

Notwithstanding companies were formed in various sections of the county and large bounties offered by township, borough and county authorities, many enlisted in companies and regiments gotten up in other sections of the State, and very many went over the line and attached themselves to companies or regiments formed in Steuben, Chemung, or other counties of New York. It has been estimated by those competent to judge that fully five hundred privates from Tioga county were enlisted in this manner and lost their identity as belonging to Tioga county; and it is therefore concluded that Tioga county’s sons to the number 2,500 were engaged in the war for the Union. The historian who should gather a full and complete list of the citizens of Tioga county who participated in the war would find it a lifelong task. The searching of either township or county records or those in the adjutant generals’ offices of Pennsylvania and New York will not show the facts, for the men were accredited to the township and county where they enlisted, and not as hailing from Tioga county. It is only by a personal acquaintance with the soldier that the true record can ever be made up. This personal acquaintance no one posses, and the only way that an approximately true record can be made is for the survivors to communicate with some central organization.

We append a record in part, showing the commissioned officers of some Tioga companies. A complete roster would be two voluminous for our space. The date following the name is that from which the officer’s rank dated.
