When Pennsylvania did not meet Lincoln's August 1862 request for 300,000 nine-month volunteers, the Commonwealth drafted fifteen regiments between mid-October and early December, totaling 15,000 men. All fifteen regiments were mustered out of service by mid-August 1863. Few saw any combat action. Documentation for these regiments is lacking.
