Welcome to "Remembering the 142nd PVI". The purpose of this site is post pictures, information, and the final resting places of this regiment of the American Civil War. It seeks to tell a "bottom up" history, straight from the common soldiers themselves. If you have any information concerning the 142nd, please email me at bmonticue@gmail.com. Thank you and enjoy.

Those Who Still Remember, Part II

This site aspires to one day be the central online location for information on the 142nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, but it is by no means the only place that still remembers the men and deeds of this fine regiment. Two reenacting units, portraying Companies F & G, respectively, are very active in the living history community.
