Company C of the 125th Pennsylvania                Volunteer Infantry
 

History of Co. C of the 125th PVI:  

The 125th Regiment was organized in late July and early August of 1862 with men recruited from Blair, Huntingdon, and Cambria Counties in Pennsylvania.  Company C was formed of men largely from Huntingdon County who mustered in as early as August 7, 1862.  The regiment left for Harrisburg under the command of Colonel Jacob Higgins, and then left Pennsylvania on August 16 for Washington, D. C.  

Company C was under the leadership of Captain William W. Wallace, and became known as "The Bible Company" because of Wallace's belief that the men were being directly guided by the will of God.  Wallace penned the motto and battle cry, "In God Is Our Strength!"

The battles in which the 125th fought included:

  •  Battle of Antietam - September 16-17, 1862
  • Mud March - January 20-24, 1863
  • Battle of Chancellorsville -  May 1-5, 1863

The men were also present in the defense of Washington, Rockville, Pleasant Valley, Maryland Heights, Loudon Heights, Shenandoah Valley, Harper's Ferry, Fredericksburg, Fairfax Station, and Stafford Courthouse.  The men were mustered out on May 18, 1863 at Harrisburg, PA, and many made their way back home to Huntingdon County.   However, the Confederate victory at the Second Battle of Winchester allowed an invasion into Pennsylvania, which had many of the soldiers from the 125th Regiment reenlisting as part of the Emergency and State Militia Troops of 1863.

In total, 14 men from Company C were killed in battle or died from their wounds.  The majority of these men fell in the West Woods at Antietam.  In addition, 13 others were injured during their service, but survived from their wounds.

Members of Co. C:

Captains:

William W. Wallace was mustered in August 16, 1862 and mustered out with the company on May 18, 1863.  

Lieutenants:

Theodore L. Flood was mustered in August 7, 1862.  He was promoted from 1st Sergeant to 2nd Lieutenant on February 7, 1863.  He was mustered out with the company on May 18, 1863.  He was born in Williamsburg, Blair County, PA, in 1842.  

* Theodore Flood later recalled the Battle of Antietam as:  "... we marched to the battlefield of Antietam, where we went into that awful conflict early on the morning of Wednesday, the seventeenth day of September. While waiting in line of battle for orders to advance and fire, Adjutant Johnston, of our regiment, was mortally wounded and died in a few hours. The battle was on in full force. Confederate pickets were shooting down our officers, shells were flying over our heads, horses and men lay dead on the field. We were ordered forward in line of battle, and Captain Wallace stepped out in front of the company, waving his sword, and called out, "Boys, remember our battle-cry, 'In God We Trust.'"  This was taken up as a battle-cry by adjoining companies along the line, until we reached the edge of a woods, where we were halted and ordered to fire. The enemy met us with a heavy charge. We could see them coming in line of battle as we loaded and fired. General Mansfield fell mortally wounded just in the right front of our regiment while reconnoitering . The blood from his wound reddened his long white beard. As we stood firing into the ranks of the enemy the second man to me, George A. Simpson, while bravely holding the flag aloft, was hit with a bullet from a Confederate gun, which pierced his brain, and he fell dead. A second man picked up the flag, and he was shot clown. A third, and he fell; the fourth took it up, and he was shot and fell. Then Sergeant W.W. Greenland picked up tile flag, stained with the blood of Simpson, and Captain Wallace, taking it in charge, carried it across the field to the rear of the nearest battery, and there he, aided by Captains Bell and McKeage and Lieutenant Thomas McCamant, rallied about two hundred of the regiment, who remained in support, while our batteries operated with deadly execution upon the enemy, during the rest of tile conflict. The conflict was raging all along the line of tile army; the Confederates were pressing us hard; our line was broken, and a new line of battle was formed in the rear. Two hundred and twenty-nine men of our regiment were killed and wounded in about twenty minutes; of these 84 were slightly wounded, but not disabled, and therefore were not reported. It was a dreadful struggle and we were thrust into the very furnace of battle." - copied from Antietam on the Web
