95th Pennsylvania Infantry – Pennsylvania Memorial at Gettysburg

Posted By on April 27, 2011

(Part  23 of an ongoing series on the Battle of Gettysburg).  Around the base of the Pennsylvania Memorial at Gettysburg are a series of plaques which, by regiment and company, note the names of every soldier who was present at the Battle of Gettysburg.  This post will present the plaque recognizing the men who served in the 95th Pennsylvania Infantry.  By clicking on the plaque it should enlarge so the names can be more clearly read.  Following the plaque is a list of the men who have thus far been identified as eligible for inclusion in this Civil War Research Project who, it is believed, served for a time in the 95th Pennsylvania Infantry .  Not all the names may appear on the Pennsylvania Memorial plaques.  If a name does not appear, it could be that the soldier did serve in the 95th Pennsylvania Infantry, but was not part of the regiment during its days at Gettysburg – or it could mean that the soldier was erroneous included in the 95th Pennsylvania Infantry list.  There could also be errors on the plaque.  Readers are invited to submit comments about any names appearing below, or on the plaque, especially if they believe the soldier was from the Lykens Valley area and should be included in this study.

    Found my great great uncle, John B. Cooke, Company E of the 95th. What an incredible man. I have some of his letters written to his brother in the 1930s in which he mentions his service to his country in the Civil War. He lived well into his 90s even thought he was wounded 4 times in the 30 battles he was involved. After the war he became an attorney in Philadelphia. I have a newspaper photo of him from the 1930s at the age of 93. His uniform is on display at the Fredericksburg Battlefield Museum in Virginia and there is a picture of him on this website. I hope to visit Gettysburg Battlefield and find this monument someday. 150 years ago today he was on that battlefield. We must never forget the sacrifice and suffering on both sides.

    Can you tell me if Thomas J Ryan was with the 95th at Wilderness?

    Thanks You
