The companies for the regiment were recruited in the counties of Allegheny, Erie, Franklin, Fulton. Huntingdon, Lancaster and Luzerne. Thus the cen- tral, northern, eastern, southern and western parts of the State were represented in this regiment. A general rendezvous was established at "Camp Slifer. Eli Slifer. It was thereafter known as the Seventy-seventh Regiment of Penn- sylvania Volunteers.
Frederick S. Stumbaugh was chosen Colonel. Hou- sum, of Chambersburg, Pa. Bradford, of Luzerne county, was commissioned Major. Charles F. Muehler, of Erie, brought about sixty men to Camp Wilkins for the artillery company. These men were consolidated with Housunfs men into one company, of which Charles F.
Muehler was chosen Captain. The regiment at this time iiad one company of artillery and six companies, viz: A. Negley brigade, which included the 77th, 78th and 79th Penn- sylvania Volunteers and was commanded by Brigadier Gen- eral James S. Stumbaugh commanding, left Camp Wilkins on Friday, October 18, , and embarked with the rest of the brigade the same evening, on steamboats on the Monongahela river, and went down the Ohio river.
Dis- embarking at Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday morning the 22d, they marched through that city to Camp Oakland. On Wednesday, the 23d, the regiment struck tents, marched to the L. The train started at 4 P. Late as it was, the tents were pitched in the woods. On the morning of the 24th, the troops moved to an open field near Nolin creek. To the new location the name Camp Nevin was given.
Here they were kept industriously at work learning military by daily drills. Meanwhile Frederick S. Pyfer was recruiting a company at Lancaster, Pa. There his men were armed and equipped.
On November 10 they were started for Louisville on the steamer Argonaut. On the 11th orders came to pro- ceed down the river as rapidly as possible, to Guyandotte, which place had been attacked by a force of the enemy. The recruits, however, arrived too late to take any part, but just in time to see the repulsed enemy retiring in the distance. A large part of the town had been fired and was burning fiercely when the boats with reinforcements arrived.
On the evening of the 12th, Captain Pyfer's command arrived at Louisville, reaching Camp Nevin the next evening by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. As this company had been recruited for the 79th Regiment, the men refused to go into any other, and were therefore not mustered into the 77th until December 8 as Company K of that regiment at Camp Negley, to which place, about two and one-half miles south of Camp Nevin, the brigade had been moved about the last of November.
During November an important reorganization of the army occurred. New departments were created and commanders assigned. General Orders No. The Department of the Ohio.
