Kane, afterwards Commanding-Officer of the regiment, and later a Major-General, embarked upon four rafts for Harrisburg, where they were mustered into the service of the State and formed the nucleus about which the Bucktail Regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps was organized, which during its term of service was almost continuously attached to the Army of the Potomac.
