Delaware Public Archives
Dover, Delaware

Taylor Reynolds, a member of the Delaware Public Archives staff, will be presenting on the history of the 2nd Delaware Volunteer Infantry, a prominent Delaware Regiment during the American Civil War. The 2nd was formed in Wilmington, Delaware in 1861, and would go on to gain a distinguished reputation within the Army of the Potomac until it was mustered out of service in the summer of 1864. Using records housed at the Delaware Public Archives, the Delaware Historical Society, and various letters and accounts from soldiers who fought with the 2nd, Reynolds will follow the regiment through the three years it was involved in the war.
