Pennsylvania in the Civil War

Jan -Feb 1862

The 26th was in the Lower Potomac area of Maryland in camp near Budd’s Ferry.  They were guarding against secessionist activity & dealing with runaway slaves, the illegal sale of whiskey, desertions, Confederate shells from the opposite shore, varying weather between snow with frigid temperatures & rain leaving thick mud and of course drill.
