William Rickards Jr. - Colonel   
Col. William Rickards Jr., of Philadelphia, was a jeweler by trade when the war started. He was mustered into service in July 1861 as captain of Company I. Captured by Confederate forces in May 1862, he was exchanged in August and promoted to lieutenant colonel in October 1862. In May 1863 he assumed command of the 29th as colonel. He led the regiment in the defense of Culp's Hill at Gettysburg, at the night battle in Wauhatchie, Tenn., and in the attack at Lookout Mountain, Tenn. His troops were the first to reach the top of the mountain in the Battle Above the Clouds, planting the 'Stars and Stripes' on the mountain's summit. While leading his troops in an assault on a Confederate defensive position in a skirmish at Pine Knob near Kennesaw Mountain, Ga., on June 15, 1864, he was severely wounded with a gunshot to the chest. While recovering, he was promoted to brevet brigadier general and honorably discharged in November 1864. After the war, he moved to Franklin, Pa., where he worked as manager of an oil drilling business and later became a dentist. He died at the age of 75 on May 25, 1900, in Franklin, Pa.
