WBTS Trivia: Major James T. Clancy was promoted to Colonel of the 45th Pennsylvania Infantry on August 13, 1863.

The 45th Pennsylvania Infantry Volunteers were part of the "Emergency Troops" called into action by Governor Andrew G. Curtin in the summer of 1863 during the Confederate invasion of the North resulting in the Gettysburg campaign. A proclamation was issued by Governor Curtin on June 26th, calling for 60,000 men at once to be mustered into the state service for a term of 90 days and to be discharged as soon as the danger was over.

A force under General Joseph F. Knipe approached Chambersburg, Pa., but found it in the hands of the Confederates and were obliged to retire gradually before the advance of General Edward Johnson's division of General Richard E. Ewell's corps.

Clancy's regiment were in Chambersburg on Jul. 13 as indicated by the postmark on this envelope.
