Paroled Prisoners of War of the 26th Regiment, Militia of 1863

Larry,

This parole business always strikes me as an absurdity : and yet, I suppose it had redeeming features.

How much actual fighting did the Pa State Militia actually do ?

What was their potential in combat terms : were they well armed and trained, or were they just weekend soldiers seeking to escape the perils of high intensity warfare ?

I’m sure that I’ve read of their southern counterparts bleeding and dying around Petersburg ( or was it Atlanta?).

Scope for me to do some reading here !

Regards, Phil
