recruiting poster
[Thanks to Joe Fulginiti for this image]
[Does the reference to the regiment as "P.V." (sc. Pennsylvania Volunteers) instead of "P.V.V." (sc. Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteers) indicate that the poster precedes their reenlistment as veterans in December 1863? Gregory was detached to the recruiting service on 17 February 1864, and returned to the regiment on 29 April 1864. But the evidence I have for 1864 is good, and does not indicate that Closson was similarly detached, while the evidence for the earlier period is more limited, partly because of the loss of regimental books.]
