    Antietam

    Colonel Snider’s horse was killed under him as the regiment fought at the Sunken Road.

    From the brigade marker on the Antietam battlefield at the Sunken Road:

    Kimball’s Brigade, following Weber and Morris, encountered the enemy in the Bloody Lane and in the cornfield to the south.

    The contest there was of the most desperate character, and continued until afternoon when, supported on the left by Richardson’s Division, the Brigade attacked the enemy and gained the Bloody Lane.

    An attack on the right flank was made and repulsed by a change of front of the Ohio and Indiana Regiments, forming the right wing of the Brigade in its final assault on the enemy’s position.

    Gettysburg

    The regiment was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan H. Lockwood, who was wounded by “grapeshot” and whose horse was killed under him. It brought 319 men to the field, of whom 5 were killed, 41 wounded and 1 missing.

    From their monument:

    At dusk July 2nd Carroll’s Brigade was ordered by General Hancock to this point. On arriving there we found the Battery about to be taken charge of by the enemy who were in large force. Whereupon we immediately charged on the enemy and succeeded in completely routing their entire force and driving them beyond our lines.

    Does that reenactment group have a uniform page; like what type of equipment you need to join?

    I don't understand your last post. But i wanna know all elements uniform. To imagine what they might look like. How was it like?
    Just judging from the photos, they didn't have any big differences in uniforms with the other regiments. But such officers were not only caps, but hats with brims. Also among the soldiers were not only caps, but also just hats. Really don't like the officers. Thank you for help in this researching!

    I am assuming you are referring to a wide brimmed slouch hat? A civilian style hat instead of the military Kepi. He is asking if the reenacting group you posted a picture from above has a website where they describe the uniforms of the unit. Most reenactment groups research that stuff very thoroughly and members may even be descendant of the original men themselves and may even have some original gear. That is a good place to research.

    He's saying that since West Virginia = Union, and Union and Lincoln were viewed as oppressors and a tyrant by the Confederacy and Virginia.
