194th Regiment
Pennsylvania Volunteers

This regiment was recruited in the counties of Schuylkill, Berks, Luzerne, Lycoming, Montour, Dauphin, Miffin, Cambria, Bedford, and York, and was organized at Camp Curtin, on the 22d of July, 1864, with the following field officers:
  • James Nagle, Colonel
  • Richard M'Michael, Lieutenant Colonel
  • Oscar D. Jenkins, Major
On the day of its organization, it moved for Baltimore, and upon its arrival, went into camp at Mankin's Woods. About the 1st of September, the regiment removed to Camp Carroll, a mile south-west of the city, on the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Company K, which had been originally recruited for a cavalry company, soon after its arrival at Baltimore, was detached from the regiment, and stationed at the barracks, a half mile north:west of the Washington Monument. A few weeks later, this company was sent to the eastern shore of Maryl and, where it remained, engaged in provost duty, until the close of its service. Companies C, G, GI, and I, and parts of companies D, E, and F, were stationed at various points in the city for provost duty. Details from the remaining companies, to serve as escorts and guards to rebel prisoners on their way through the city to places of confinement, and for recruits destined for the front, were being constantly made, as long as the regiment remained in service.

At the expiration of its term, the scattered detachments were called in, and it proceeded to Harrisburg, where, on the 6th of November, it was mustered out.
