A couple of days ago, I posted Soon to be Expert ( ??? ) on a project I was starting on. Being the 4th of July, I was drawn to take a look at the Civil War record of William H Ort, the Great Great grandfather of my daughter’s boss.
The Soldier and Sailors website has information on the Regiments in the Civil War so I wanted to look a little more into this regiment to see if there were any battles what other Civil War units that I have looked at before.
So, why am I posting this today. Well, I missed an anniversary, by two days. On 02 July 1863, the 27th Regiment was mustered out back in New Jersey. Guess I spent too my time in Cemeteries over the past couple of days.
Here is a quick map that I created to show the 27th Regiment during the Civil War (03 September 1862 – 02 July 1863)
A Timeline Report is here if you care to look at it.
