Enlist your senses in the 141st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. While Civil War books generally speak on great leaders or great battles, Draped in Blue & Brave allows glimpses into soldiers personal lives. Their trials under fire, on the march or in camp are riveting. Many soldiers died in battle. Many more were wounded. Too many initially survived their injury only to later die at the hands of the doctors. The common soldier of the day fought side by side with brothers and neighbors. To not let their comrades down, the men rose to the heights of the courageous. Bravery became more common than one would imagine. So common, in fact, that over twenty of the 141st PVI received the Kearney Cross for gallantry at the Battle of Chancellorsville. Place your mark on the enlistment form. Join the 141st PVI.
