83rd Pennsylvania Infantry

Unit Facebook Group

Unit Overview

It is hard to call any Civil War regiment an “elite” regiment, but among the top contenders for such a title has to be the 83rd Pennsylvania. Their proficiency in drill, and steadfastness in battle forged a reputation that has few rivals in the annals of the Civil War. This reputation was sealed in the blood of 435 of their men who died in their 4 years of service, the second highest number of dead for any US regiment in the war. In a rare occurrence, the majority of their dead fell in battle rather than to disease, a further testament to their steadfastness and courage.
