The 154th New York was organized September 24, 1862 and served its time in the 11th and 20th Corps of the Union Army. The regiment is well-known for its Gettysburg service as one of its members was Sergeant Amos Humiston who became famous when his dead body was found on the corner of York and Stratton Streets. When found Humiston was holding a photograph of his three children. Copies of the children’s photograph were made and printed in newspapers around the country which eventually brought about the identification of Humiston’s body and at the same time making his children famous. A monument now stands on Stratton St in Gettysburg not far from where Humiston’s lifeless body was found. Another reason for the regiments fame is a large mural painted by author Mark H. Dunkelman on the side of a building near where the regiments monument on the Gettysburg battlefield stands. The painting shows the regiment in action and several of the soldier’s faces in the painting are of actual members of the regiment.

The 154th lost heavily at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Rocky Face Ridge.    [AD] [PH:L]
