"Second" or "New" 101st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry
After the capture of the majority of the 101st PA at Plymouth, NC on the 20th of April 1864, Roanoke Island, NC became the headquarters for the 18th Army Corps Sub-District of the Albemarle and was garrisoned by fragments of the regiments from Plymouth, including members of the 101st PA. In the spring of 1865, men began arriving at Roanoke Island from PA to fill up the depleted ranks of the 101st. The plans were to form 8 new companies and combine the men of the original 101st already there into 2 companies, with a total of 10 companies. However, this re-organization never was totally effected. They were used as garrison troops at Roanoke Island, Morehead City, NC, and at Camp Palmer, New Bern, NC. The muster out date for the majority of these soldiers was June 25, 1865 at New Bern, NC. They received their final pay at Harrisburg, PA on July 13, 1865. Any further information pertaining to their military service would be greatly appreciated.
1st Sgt. John S. Himes has a pretty good account of the actions of the 2nd 101st PA!
