-To the Field - Services - Roll.

IN August, 1862, Thompson Core recruited a company at Curllsville. August 26was the day appointed to start for the army, and on that day forty-two men left Curllsville in wagons for Kittanning, which place they reached at six o'clock, P.M. On the 27th the company went on the cars, A.V.R.R., to Pittsburgh, reaching that city about noon. August 29 the men were mustered into the United States service. Captain Core, A.C. Coursin, and J.Z. Brown then returned to Clarion county to recruit; the company having been given quarters at Camp Howe. On the 4th of September the men were uniformed, and taking the train that evening, they reached Harrisburg next morning, September 5, about five o'clock, and proceeded at once to Camp Curtin. On the 7th of September Captain Core, J.Z. Brown, and A.C. Coursin arrived at Camp Curtin with sixteen men for the company, and by reason of Lieutenant Ferguson not having a receipt to show that the other men had been sworn in at Pittsburgh, they were all re-sworn at the time the new men were mustered. On the 9th the company was armed with Vincennes rifled muskets, and assigned to the One Hundred and Forty-eighth Regiment, as Company K. That evening the regiment, under command of Colonel James A. Beaver, started to the field. Captain Core started back to Clarion county to recruit. He returned to the regiment on the 27th of September with twenty-two recruits for Company K, nineteen of whom were from Montgomery county, the captain having recruited them at Harrisburg with the condition that Henry H. Dotts, one of their number, should be second lieutenant of the company. At this time the regiment's headquarters were at Cockeysville, and Company K was at Glencove, five miles above, all in Maryland. On the 17th of October the company received the advance bounty, twenty-five dollars to each man and two dollars premium. They were paid in bonds. On the 18th the bonds were sent to Baltimore and cashed by the Maryland bank. Rev. Elder, of Clarion, preached to the boys in Camp Beaver on the 3d of November, 1862. November 14 Assistant Secretary of State, Mr. Thomas, presented a flag to the regiment.

On the 9th of December the regiment broke camp and went to Baltimore, thence to Washington, thence to a point opposite Alexandria, ten miles from Washington. After marching, and camping, and enduring wet and cold, the troops reached the army headquarters near Fredericksburg, and were placed in the First Brigade, First Division of Second Corps, and went into winter quarters. The horse racing and other amusements of St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1863, was brought to a sudden close by the rebels opening up a sharp cannonade on our right. The company broke camp, with the regiment, on the 28th of April, and marched to Chancellorsville, where it took part in that terrific struggle.

After this Company K attested its valor on many a well-fought field. The casualties to the company are carefully noted in the roll, having been corrected by Corporal Dennis Conner, to whom the writer is indebted for valuable data. Lieutenant J.Z. Brown was promoted captain July 7, 1864, and on the 27th of October, 1864 Captain Brown with a detachment of one hundred men from the regiment, performed one of the bravest and most successful exploits of the war. They were ordered by General Miles to assault a position of the enemy's line in front. Bates says: "Having formed his men for the desperate work, just at dusk he dashed forward, thrust aside the dense abattis, drove in the pickets, and scaled the ramparts, carrying a strong work, capturing four commissioned officers and more men than he had led to the encounter. The enemy rallying and turning his artillery upon it from the other forts, finally compelled him to retire, occasioning him considerable loss. For his gallant conduct Cap-Brown was highly commended, and breveted major." The company was mustered out June 1, 1865.
