Photographic History – Index to Pennsylvania Regiments

Posted By on February 14, 2011

(Part 12 of 12).  A condensed version of the index found in Volume X of The Photographic History of the Civil WarArmies and Leaders, with reference to specific Pennsylvania regiments included in the ten volumes of The Photographic History.

The year 1911 was the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.  In a memorial to the war, a ten volume set of books was published entitled The Photographic History of the Civil War. This series attempted, through photographs, to do what no other books had previously done – to bring the war close and personal through previously unpublished and unavailable photographs.  The series was edited by Francis Trevelyan Miller.

This post is the final part of a 12 part series.

It must be noted that many/pictures may not have been included in the index.  For example, the picture of the 96th Pennsylvania Infantry in Camp Northumberland from Volume I, previous pictured in the review of Volume I, is not in the index under the 96th Pennsylvania Infantry.  Neither does it appear under Camp Northumberland, a camp that is not even included in the index!  Also, the pictures of the Pennsylvania generals that are included in the post on Volume X include references to specific Pennsylvania regiments from which they originated, are only indexed by their name and the fact that a picture appears on a page in Volume X.  No references to Pennsylvania regiments are given following their names in the index.  While this makes it difficult to use the index for this series, diligence and creativity can be used to find pictures that pertain to particular events and the rewards are worth the effort.

A final comment on the index:  many of the pages are poorly reproduced in the free, Google Books version, making it difficult to see the actual references (volumes and page numbers).  The information used in this post was taken from a print copy of Volume X, which was easier to read.

Readers are invited to submit volume and page numbers that can be added to the index on Pennsylvania regiments.  Share your finds!

For a free download of Volume X (which includes the index) from Google Books, click here and select “PDF” in the upper right corner of the page.  When the “PDF” file opens in your reader, save the file to disk.  Use of the file is subject to restrictions that are spelled out on the first page of the PDF.  Essentially, the restrictions specify that the digital book may be used for personal, non-profit use only and that the Google Books “watermark” should not be removed from the pages.
