One of the most interesting and compelling descriptions of the battles of Gettysburg and Chancellorsville is found in J.D. Bloodgoods long-forgotten 1893 memoir. Bloodgood was an enlisted private of Company I, of the One Hundred and Forty-first Regiment of Pennsylvania Infantry, promoted to a sergeant, wounded at Gettysburg, Pa., July 2, 1863, and mustered out of the service at the close of the war with a record as a good and efficient soldier.
