91st PA--Patrick Costello

Patrick Costello

Before the war

He was born in 1820/21 (8 (40 in 1861)).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 17 September 1861 (1, 8). He enlisted at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (8). He was mustered in as a private, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (8). He was a private in company I (1, 11, 12).

On 19 March 1863, he returned to the regiment from brigade headquarters (5).

According to Bates, he was discharged on 25 April 1863 (1, 8). Since the Pennsylvania Archives card claims he was discharged because his term had expired, this seems unlikely (8).

On 16 March 1864, he returned from being absent sick (7).

On 15 April 1864, he was one of seven men in the regimental pioneer corps (2).

On 4 July 1864, he was detailed for duty in the pioneer corps at brigade headquarters (3, 4, 6). He was still there in September (?) 1864 (6).

On 3 November 1864, he was reported discharged because his term had expired (9). He was a private, in company I (11, 12).
