Accounting of
Original Company K
11th Pennsylvania Reserve Corps
at Expiration of Term

Source: The Brookville Republican, June 22, 1864.

The remainder of this gallant body of men, reached home last week after having served their country manfully for three years, enduring every hardship unmurmingly. They participated in all the late hard fought battles, leaving two of their number dead on the field, others in the Hospitals, and others in rebel prisons. What a contrast they present now to what they did when three years ago they marched from this place--then they left with full ranks--now they return but a remnant. They have given full evidence of their loyalty, and proved their courage on many hard fought fields where the bones of their dead comrades lie. We gladly welcome home these few hardy, bronzed and weather-beaten soldiers, after their long and ardous campaign. The following statement from Lieut. Clover will account for all the men originally belonging to Co. K:
