35th Regiment
The source of this listing is the 1897 Tioga County History
Transcribed for Tri-Counties by Donna Wert 


This regiment was composed of men who had responded to the call of President Lincoln issued immediately after the fall of Fort Sumter. Upon their arrival at Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, finding it impossible to be accepted for the three months' service, the quota being already full, they re-enlisted for a term of three years, the "Tioga Invincibles," commanded by Capt. Julius Sherwood, becoming Company H, of the regiment, the organization of which was completed June 22, 1861. It continued in the service until June 14, 1864, when it was mustered out at Harrisburg.

The regiment was assigned to the Third Brigade of General M'Calls's Division. Its initial engagement was fought at Drainsville, December 20, 1861, and resulted in a Union victory. The principal engagements in which it afterward participated were Malvern Hill, Gaines Mills,Second Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spottsylvania and Bethesda Church. In the last engagement, though the regiment was but 150 strong, it captured 102 and buried seventy-two dead rebels in its immediate front.

After three years' service in the camp and on the march, in which it shared the privations and hardships, as well as the glory, of the Army of the Potomac, the regiment, on Jun 1, 1864, started for Harrisburg, where it was mustered out of service on the 14th of the same month. 

The following were the field officers selected at the time the regiment was organized.
