Members of today's 111th Infantry, a regiment in the Pennsylvania National Guard, feel a strong sense of pride and comradeship with the members of the Philadelphia Brigade, the first citizen militia unit to exist in Pennsylvania, derived from the Associators found in 1747 in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin. The Philadelphia Brigade joined Washington's Army for the Trenton-Princeton Campaign during the American Revolution. By the Civil War, the Associators had become the 72nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, which served along with three other regiments from Philadelphia in a brigade commanded by General Alexander Webb. Webb's brigade was actively engaged in battle with Confederate units assaulting Cemetery Ridge on July 2 and 3, 1863, during the Battle of Gettysburg. Brought together at this momentous battle these men developed a sense of pride and brotherhood that extended far beyond their own regiment to include comrades and former foes alike. In 1921 the Associators became the present-day 111th Infantry.Contemporary Units of the Army National Guard and Regular Army Derived from Units that Fought at Gettysburg Michael Martin ... way the same entity as the New York Yankees of the Babe Ruth era, but I had a lot of trouble extrapolating that sense of corporate continuity ...
