The original Company K, First Pennsylvania Reserves, were raised in Adams County, Pennsylvania. Many of the company's original members were from Gettysburg, including Henry Minnigh, who commanded the company during the battle of Gettysburg and through most of their service during the war.
The recreated Company K is also headquartered in Gettysburg, and because of this, we do several events each year on the battlefield. Lieutenant Minnigh wrote a short history of Company K, which is available in several bookstores in the town, as well as on the Internet. Here is a link that provides highlights from his book, and which also offers a general background history of the men we honor: http://www.pacivilwar.com/diaries/minnigh30k.html
