George Still - Pvt in the Civil War

I found a George Still in the Civil War from Pennsylvania. He enlisted as a Private on 16 March 1864 and was placed in Company C, 88th Infantry Regiment for Pennsylvania. He mustered out with his Company on 30 Jun 1865 at Washington, DC.

According to the Regiment History (which I read on Ancestry.com), three companies were recruited in Berks county and the remainder in Philadelphia. The Regiment was known as the Cameron Light Guards and was mustered into service at Philadelphia for a three years' term in September of 1861.
