Among their more famous leaders were Colonels John W. McLane, Strong Vincent (killed at Gettysburg), Hugh Campbell, DeWitt McCoy, C.P. Rogers and William Colt. The 83rd sustained heavy losses in the fighting at Gaines? Mill, Glendale and Malvern Hill. They fought gallantly at 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. They arrived on the field of Gettysburg on 2 July 1863 and went into position in support of the artillery at the center. Col. Vincent commanded the brigade. At about 4:00 in the afternoon, they were ordered to Little Round Top where they, again, fought gallantly until evening. Six men were mortally wounded during this fighting, among them Colonel Vincent. In all, the 83rd was engaged in 25 battles during their service, two more than any other infantry regiment from Pennsylvania.
