The 19th Indiana Infantry served in the Union Army of the Potomac, fighting throughout Virginia, as well as in Maryland, and at the Battle of Gettysburg. They were a part of the Iron Brigade, so named because of their bravery in battle. Each regiment in the Brigade, wore distinctive Army issued black hats to set them apart from other units in the Army of the Potomac. The Brigade became so famous that even units in the Confederate Army recognized them when they saw them in battle.
This is 19th Indiana Infantry Private Peter L. Faust. He was mortally wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. He died a short while later.
