Country boys formed the ‘Bucktails’

September 16, 2012

J.D. Petruzzi, Civil War historian and author from Brockway, noted that a bunch of backwoods country boys would soon form the elite group known as the “Bucktails.”
In his address to the audience during the Bucktail Monument dedication at Mt. Zion Historical Park, Petruzzi said the Bucktails became famous among their brothers-in-arms and even among those who fought against them.
“The term 'Bucktails' was so respected at the start of the war as to be uttered in awe by their comrades and declared with respect and honor when they met Confederates," Petruzzi said.
