WRAPPERS.

A Second Army Corps unit, it was known as the “Crazy Delawares.” It fought under General Richardson at the Bloody Lane where it made a highly effective charge that went unnoticed by higher echelons. Seems a real sore spot with unit members! It served in all the engagements during the Seven Days, Fredericksburg in the leading attacking elements, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg (Wheat Field), Bristoe Station, and Spottsylvania. The unit’s service terminated in the summer of 1864.

Not in Nevins. Dornbusch II-181.

Delaware stuff is hard to find, likely due to the small number of units the State fielded.
