4182Re: 128th PA weapons
- Feb 1, 2008Perfect. Thank you Tom.
Oddly, that's the source (plus some of the quarterly reports from ordinance) that I got my
small arms data from...the reason I asked is I have the "hard" data in my OOB in bold and
use plain text for (semi) educated guesswork and I'm always on the lookout to turn
something plain into bold. Yet, the weapons for the 128th were not in bold, so I assumed
I didn't find them in Todd.
I either missed them in the book or screwed up the coding in the OOB. Either way, they are
fixed now thanks to your help.

I just can confirm that they had very little drilling from letters and reports. Though their
Colonel, Samuel Croasdale had been in the 25th Pa, so he had some experience, which is
why he got the job of Colonel. He primarily raised Co C of the regiment, most men
coming from the Doylestown area.
