Sallie here. When I was in Gettysburg recently, I met some great soldiers who had something funny in their hats. I learned that they are called the Pennsylvania Bucktail Regiment and how they fought during the Battle of Gettysburg. The first regment was up on Little Round Top.
Here is a video of me talking to the captain of the regiment. Enjoy learning about the Pennsylvania Bucktails.
Now that you have seen the video, see if you can answer these questions:
1. Why do they wear a white tailed deer tail in their hat?
2. Where are they recruited from?
3. Where did the first regiment of the Pennsylvania Bucktails fight?
Until Next time.... Sallie
