1863 List of 110th Pennsylvania Officer & Men Killed & Wounded at Gettysburg, July 2

Item No. SQ2675549

This is kind of a unique piece that was among the documents of Samuel D. Hayes, the regimental quartermaster for the 110th Pennsylvania Volunteers during the Civil War. The document is titled, "Official list of killed and wounded of the 110th Reg't Penna Vols. at the battle of Gettysburg, July 2nd 1863." It lists the name, rank, company, nature of the wound, and other remarks for thirty men. Of the thirty, six are listed as having been killed in action. Three others died of their wounds in the following weeks.

The wounds sustained by the men of the 110th were given with anatomical detail. Included are, "G[un] S[hot] right axilla (flesh)," "G. S. left lung," "G. S. left arm, execution 3 in radius," "G. S. trachea oesophagus & left shoulder," and "contused shell wound, back." Quite a bit of suffering, sadly.

The document is unsigned, but might have been prepared by a member of the regiment's medical staff. It is docketed on the reverse, which is presumably the side that faced outward during its many years of storage. It reads, "Killed + wounded at Gettysburg."

The list was written on a large sheet of ledger paper measuring about 15 1/2" x 12 1/2". It is in very good condition, as shown. Minor wear to edges and corners. Little toning, though more on the reverse. Creases where originally folded. Minor separation at a couple of folds, with small holes visible where folds meet
