***Note: This is "old" history and found to be
incorrect. A corrected history provided by Jeffrey Stocker is
below, and this information and much, much more, is in his
newly released book on the 153rd:
"Here are the CORRECT figures, which have been accumulated by
going through almost 800 pension files, all compiled service records and all
medical card files: One officer and 68 men were killed in action, namely 16 at
Chancellorsville, and 53 at Gettysburg; 160 were wounded and 181 taken prisoner,
of whom at least 57 were wounded when they fell into Rebel hands. Note that 6
men were casualties at both battles, which makes the total number of casualties
404. One soldier was killed when struck by a train and 19 others died of
disease. 37 men were discharged for disability and 4 officers resigned. Nine
men deserted." Jeffrey Stocker
