Unit: 125th New York

Unit Affiliation: (3), 1, II

Title: A Regimental History: The One Hundred and Twenty-Fifth New York State Volunteers

Author: Simons, E.D.

BTC’s Take: Simons, the regimental chaplain, is an uneven writer.  He often breaks into lengthy asides on men who distinguished themselves while with the regiment.  This makes for sometimes difficult reading.  With that said, he does go into some detail about the various fights in which the 125th New york found itself during the Siege of Petersburg.  His writing on Second Ream’s Station was especially interesting.  The good part about the biographical asides is that there are numerous photographs of men who commanded the regiment, and a lot of detail about their lives and service.
