This regiment was recruited under the auspices of the Union League Association of Philadelphia, to serve for one hundred days, and was known as the Fifth Union League Regiment. It was organized at Camp Cadwalader, near the city, on the 20th of July, 1864, and a week later proceeded to Camp Bradford, at Mankin's Woods, near Baltimore. About the middle of August, it moved by rail to Chicago, Illinois, where it was employed in guarding Camp Douglass, in which was confined a large number of prisoners of war. On the 26th, company H was detached from the regiment and sent to Springfield, Illinois, where, until the expiration of its term of service, it performed provost duty. The regiment returned to Philadelphia, early in November, and upon its arrival, was ordered to temporary duty at Fort Delaware, whither it immediately proceeded. It was mustered out of service at Philadelphia, on the 17th of November, 1864.
