The 125th Pennsylvania Volunteers

Transcribed from the Ebensburg Alleghanian October 9, 1862

The 125th Penna. Vols.

We have received from a friend in camp, a detailed account of the
part sustained by this regiment in the great battle of Antietam. We are
sorry we have not room for it this week, it being even at present a
little old, and will publish it in our next. The 125th is composed of
four companies from Huntingdon and six from Blair, one half of one of
these latter hailing from the northwestern section of this county. We
append the list of casualties in the company spoken of - Co. K, Capt.
