The Union Blues

"Among the companies raised for the three months’ service, under the first call of the General Government for troops, under the erroneous impression that the Southern rebellion was not going to be very formidable, was one raised in Chester, and organized at Harrisburg, April 23, 1861, called "The Union Blues," attached to the 9th Regiment of Infantry, Pennsylvania Volunteers."
