This is a reference book of muster rolls along with narrative pages designed to provide a connection to the data. Archivist Randy Hackenburg has used period newspapers, eyewitness accounts, official records, and original documents in the Pennsylvania Archives, as a supplement to the story of troops who left Pittsburgh on steamboats, stayed in New Orleans, camped at Lobos Island, landed at Vera Cruz, fought in battles all the way to the Halls of Montezuma, were besieged at Puebla, and helped occupy Mexico City. There is brief information on each soldier in Pennsylvania's two volunteer infantry regiments, 80 photographs of uniforms, flags, weapons, equipment, and Civil War vintage photos of the men, and a narrative of the activities of the two regiments from enlistment to return.
