This list of casualties only embraces those occurring in the different battles in which the regiment was engaged, and does not comprise those who afterwards died of wounds; while many who were marked "missing" were afterwards found to have been killed.   The entire loss, by battle and disease, was fourteen officers killed, and two hundred and ninety-five enlisted men killed and died of disease, making a death-roll of three hundred and nine.  The aggregate number on the rolls during the entire four years, comprising the veterans transferred from the Sixty-third Pennsylvania Volunteers, and five hundred and eighty-eight drafted men and substitutes, was two thousand and forty.   The majority of the drafted men and substitutes were put into the regiment in 1865.   During the four years' service, the regiment took part in twenty-eight engagements.
