215th Pennsylvania Infantry      
Company Unknown
Alfred Clymer - Sergeant   
I have two letters written to Alfred's sister in Lahaska, Pa. The first from 1863 is from Alfred who sick at the time, possibly in hospital, complaining his stomach illness. the second letter is dated in the Spring of 1864 and written from the 121st Camp at Belle Plain Landing, Va. by then 'Colonel' James Ashworth, writing to Alfred's sister Hannah on his behalf explaining how poorly his condition was at the time. Alfred apparently was well enoughto eventually participate in the Wilderness campaign and was mortally wounded probably at Bethesda Church June1-3. He was made colour-bearer at the time of his wounding or just before and was struck in the leg by cannon fire. He died on July 17th. I found this information in the History of the 121st by The Survivor's Association. Richard Warren

Charles Robinson - Sergeant   
My grandfather's grandfather was the commissary sergeant of the regiment from June, 1863 through the end of the war. I have a diary he started on May 3, 1864, the day before Grant's push south through the Wilderness to Richmond started.

Sgt. Robinson spent most of his time in the rear with the wagons so he has no accounts of any of the fighting. The most interesting incident was when he went out picking berries and managed to end up in front of the Union picket line. He managed to get himself back without getting shot.

He kept the diary for about two weeks. The remainder of the small black book is filled with his notes about rations issued.
