Company K
Thomas Inglesby - Private   
On July 1, 1861 Company K of the 28th Pennsylvania volunteers was mustered into service. The Company was formed of men largely from the city of Philadelphia, they were equipped at the personal expense of John Geary, a Mexican American war veteran, former mayor of San Francisco and governor of the territoy of Kansas.

The men signed up for enlistments of three years, and saw action in most of the eastern campaigns, Cedar Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Following Gettysburg and the Union defeat at Chickamauga in the west, President Lincoln detached the 12th Corps which the 28th was a part, and transferred them to the Army of the West in Chattanooga.

The men travelled in trains over a thousand miles and arrived in less than a week and were instrumental in breaking the Confederate seige of forces encircled in the city. They joined Sherman''s Army of the West and marched to Atlanta and the sea.

Their story is the classic ''East meets West'', eastern troops and western troops were very different, young city slickers and western farmboys meeting each other and taking their appraisal of the other for the first time. At war''s end the men of the 28th proudly marched with Sherman''s troops in the Grand Review, the celebratory parade at war''s end through the streets of Washington DC.
