PREFACE 

The movement to provide for the compilation and publication of a revised record 
of the Massachusetts soldiers, sailors, and marines in the military and naval service of 
the United States in the Civil War was inaugurated about the time of the Spanish-Ameri- 
can War and found embodiment in Chap. 475 of the Acts of 1899. 

This act established a bureau of the office of the adjutant general, to be presided 
over by a board of three commissioners, which board was to consist of the adjutant gen- 
eral, the secretary of the commonwealth, and the auditor, and was to have general super- 
vision of the entire work. The commissioners were authorized to appoint some suitable 
person to have direct charge of the compilation of the records, and the archives of the 
adjutant general's office were to be open and accessible to him. 

The particulars which were to be stated in the record of each soldier, sailor, and marine 
were explicitly set forth, and the publication and distribution of the records were provided 
for. To carry out the provisions of the act the commission was authorized to expend the 
sum of ten thousand dollars annually. 

The original commission was made up of Adjutant General Samuel Dalton, Secre- 
tary of the Commonwealth William M. Olin, and State Auditor John W. Kimball, all 
of whom had distinguished themselves and honored the commonwealth by years of faithful 
service both in the Union army and in civil life. 

The commissioners appointed as the first compiler Col. Edward T. Bouv6 who served 
in that capacity from Dec. 16, 1899, until his retirement Mar. 1, 1917. The governor 
then appointed Maj. William H. Alline, who had been connected with the work since its 
inception and had served twenty years as first clerk, to succeed Col. Bouve as compiler. 
This position he held until his death which occurred April 21, 1923. The work was then 
placed under the direction of Hon. Fred W. Cross, military archivist in the adjutant 
general's office, by whom it was completed. 

Some idea of the magnitude of the work accomplished may be gained from the fol- 
lowing details. Over 1,000,000 original records have been examined and copied, in most 
cases each on a separate slip, records found on original enlistment papers, muster-in rolls, 
descriptive rolls, town reports, casualty lists, monthly reports, hospital records, muster-out 
rolls, and miscellaneous papers. All the cards or slips relating to men who served in 
Massachusetts units were then sorted and allocated by companies and regiments. First 
the slips belonging to each individual soldier had to be selected out and arranged in order 
in little packs by themselves. Then the packs had to be arranged alphabetically under 
their proper company heads. Finally the assembled records of the companies were 
arranged in order under their respective regimental designations. 

It was found that many individual records were incomplete and could not be com- 
pleted from the documents on file in the archives division of the adjutant general's office, 
hence resort had to be made to the files of the War and Na\^ Departments at Washing- 
ton. In our letter books there are 12 volumes of letters containing about 2239 communi- 
cations received from the War Department, and 17 volumes more containing approxi- 
mately 3349 communications from the Navy Department, all of which have been received 
since the work of compilation was begun. In addition, thousands of cases have been

referred to Leet Brothers, a research company in Washington, who have given us great 
assistance in the completion of the work. 

One of the most important results of our correspondence with Leet Brothers and with 
the departments at Washington has been the removal of 1650 charges of desertion which 
formerly stood against the names of worthy Massachusetts soldiers and sailors. 

After the records had been collected, carded, and assembled as above described, 
the story of each man's service was condensed into one brief paragraph, and these para- 
graphs were then put into typewritten form for the printer. 

Even after most of the typing had been done, Mr. Cross went over personally every 
one of the typewritten sheets of the three years' regiments, while Miss Briggs, the senior 
clerk, went over all the sheets of the short term regiments to see that every battle casualty 
was properly and accurately stated both as to time and place. 

The condensed historical sketches which appear before the respective regimental, 
battery, and unattached company rosters are based on those which appear in Volume I 
of MASSACHUSETTS IN THE ARMY AND NAVY and which were prepared by 
Thomas Wentworth Higginson, State Military and Naval Historian. 

In the volume referred to there may be found an excellent narrative of the part played 
by Massachusetts troops in the war for the preservation of the Union, also carefully 
arranged schedules showing the number of men in each unit, the number of deaths from 
various causes, the number of major casualties in each action, and much other valuable 
information. 

The original act, Chap. 475, Acts of 1899, has been several times amended. 

By Chap. 491, Acts of 1908, the annual appropriation of $10,000 was discontinued, 
and the prosecution of the work was made dependent on such sums as the General Court 
might from time to time appropriate. 

By Chap. 242, Acts of 1910, the entire section providing for the printing and distri- 
bution of the work was repealed. 

By Chap. 211, Acts of 1912, the adjutant general was constituted sole commissioner. 

By Chap. 30, General Acts of 1915, a change was made in the particulars to be in- 
cluded as a part of each man's record. 

Finally, the work of compilation having been practically completed in the fall of 
1929, His Excellency Governor Frank G. Allen, in his annual address to the General 
Court on the first day of January, 1930, recommended, "that authority be provided for 
the publication of these data in order that we may have a permanent and complete record 
of every veteran from Massachusetts who served in the Civil War." 

This recommendation, supplemented by the petition of the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment, Grand Army of the Republic, and supported by the Woman's Relief Corps, the 
Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil 
War, the Massachusetts Commandery of the Loyal Legion of the United States, the De- 
partment of Massachusetts, United Spanish War Veterans, the Department of Massa- 
chusetts, American Legion, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and other 
patriotic societies, organizations, and individuals, found embodiment in Senate Resolve 
No. 80, which was enacted into law as Chap. 64, Resolves of 1930. This resolve reads 
as follows, — 

Resolve to provide for the printing and distribution of the records of the soldiers, 

SAILORS and marines WHO SERVED TO THE CREDIT OF MASSACHUSETTS IN THE WAR FOR THE 
preservation OF THE UNION. 

Resolved, That, after an appropriation has been made, there shall be allowed and paid out 
of the treasury of the commonwealth the sum of twenty thousand dollars, to be expended under 



PREFACE yii 

the direction of the adjutant general, for the printing and binding of the first two volumes of 
an edition, not to exceed as to each such volume two thousand copies, of the records of the 
Massachusetts troops and officers, sailors and marines in the war of the rebellion, as compiled 
under the provisions of chapter four hundred and seventy-five of the acts of eighteen hundred 
and ninety-nine. Copies of each of said volumes shall be distributed by the state secretary 
as follows: to the adjutant general of the commonwealth, one hundred and fifty copies, for 
distribution to the adjutants general of the various states and territories within the United 
States, the library of the war department and of the navy department of the United States, 
and for purposes of exchange and additional distribution at his discretion ; to the state hbrarian, 
fifty copies, for distribution at his discretion; to the Ubrary of congress, two copies; to the 
headquarters of the department of Massachusetts, Grand Army of the Republic, one copy; 
and, at the discretion of the state secretary, one copy of each such volume to the library of 
each state and territory within the United States, one copy to each free public library, and 
branch thereof, in the commonwealth, and, upon written application, one copy to each incor- 
porated historical and antiquarian society in the commonwealth. After making the foregoing 
distribution, or making provision therefor, the state secretary shall place the remaining copies 
on sale to the general public, at a price not less than the cost of the printing and binding thereof. 

Approved May 28, 19S0. 

The names of all men who served in Massachusetts units during the Civil War appear 
in this compilation. The question whether men who served in the United States Army, 
United States Colored Troops, Veteran Reserve Corps, or organizations from other states 
should be taken up was decided on the basis of residence in Massachusetts or credit to 
some town or city in Massachusetts. The same rule applies largely to enlistments in 
the Navy and Marine Corps. 

The w^ork of compilation was begun by veterans who had themselves been partici- 
pants in the war which saved the Union. One by one those men passed to their rest, 
and their places were taken by men and women who, like their predecessors, have been 
deeply impressed wath the importance and the sacredness of the task. The finished work 
is now presented to the public in the belief that it contains a fairly complete and correct 
record of the men of Massachusetts who served in the Civil War.

The Adjutant General.

FIRST REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 

Three Years 

The 1st Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was the outgrowth of the 1st Regt. Mass. Vol. Mil., 
commanded by Col. Robert Cowdin, who became colonel of the 1st Inf. when its organi- 
zation was completed. To the five companies of the 1st Regt. Mass. Vol. Mil. were added 
five others of volunteers raised in April, 1861. Four companies were mustered into the 
service May 23, four others May 24, and one each on May 25 and May 27. On June 1 the 
regiment assembled at Camp Ellsworth on the banks of Fresh Pond in Watertown. 
Twelve days later it was transferred to Camp Cameron in North Cambridge. 

Leaving Massachusetts June 15, on the 17th it reached Washington. Assigned to 
Richardson's Brigade of Tyler's Division, it remained in camp near Washington until the 
advance to Bull Run where it participated in the battle at Blackburn's Ford, July 18, three 
daj's before the main battle of Bull Run. 

In August it became a part of the famous Hooker Brigade. During the fall it was 
encamped for some time at Bladensburg, did duty on the Potomac above Washington, 
built Fort Lincoln, moved to Budd's Ferry, and was variously engaged until spring when 
it became a part of Grover's Brigade, Hooker's Division, Heintzelman's (3d) Corps, and 
was transferred to the Peninsula. 

On April 6 it was in action before Yorktown, and on May 5 it suffered heavily at 
Williamsburg. It was encamped in the White Oak Swamp region until June 25 when it 
was engaged with loss at Fair Oaks. During the Seven Days battles it lost heavily at 
Glendale, June 30, its major, Charles P. Chandler being killed. After the battle of 
Malvern Hill it retired to Harrison's Landing where it remained until August when it was 
ordered back to the defenses of Washington. 

Joining Gen. Pope's army near Warrenton Jc, as a part of Grover's Brigade, Hooker's 
Division, it was in action at Bristoe Station, Aug. 27, and again near Groveton (Manassas), 
Aug. 29, where it assaulted the celebrated railroad embankment and suffered severe loss. 
After the campaign was ended the regiment remained in or near the defenses of Washing- 
ton until the last of October. About this time Gen. Carr succeeded Gen. Grover in com- 
mand of the brigade. After Fredericksburg, where the regiment suffered slight loss, it 
went into Tvinter quarters at Acquia Creek on the Potomac. 

As a part of Carr's Brigade, Berry's Division, Sickles' (3d) Corps, it lost heavily at 
Chancellorsville, May 3, 1863, and still more heavily at Gettysburg, July 2, while defend- 
ing the line of the Emmittsburg road. At Wapping Heights, July 23, in New York City 
during the late summer and fall, at Kelly's Ford, Nov. 7, and during the Mine Run 
campaign in the latter part of November the regiment performed valuable service with 
few casualties. The following winter was spent in camp near Brandy Station. 

When the 3d Corps was broken up in the early spring of 1864 the 1st Regt. became 
a part of McAllister's Brigade, Mott's Division, Hancock's (2d) Corps. With this 
command it participated in the battles of the^Wilderness and Spottsylvania, its last com- 
bat service being in Hancock's assault on the Bloody Angle, May 12, 1864. 

Transferring its recruits and reenlisted men to the 11th Mass. Inf., about May 20 it 
left the front and returned to Boston where it was mustered out on May 25, after fully 
three years of service.

SECOND REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 

Three Years (Re-enlisted) 

The 2d Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was recruited in April, 1861, by George H. Gordon, 
a West Point graduate, who became its first colonel. It was the first regiment composed 
wholly of volunteers raised in Massachusetts for the war. It was organized at Camp 
Andrew at Brook Farm in West Ro.xbury, and was mustered into the service May 25, 1861. 

Leaving Massachusetts July 8, it joined the force of Gen. Patterson at Martinsburg, 
Va., on the 12th. The summer and fall were spent largely in picketing the line of the 
upper Potomac. In the late fall it was in camp at Seneca Creek near Darnestown, Md., 
and early in December it went into winter quarters at Camp Hicks on the Baltimore pike 
about four miles east of Frederick, Md. 

Late in February it moved into the Shenandoah Valley, the troops there being now 
under the command of Gen. N. P. Banks. On March 10, Col. Gordon was given command 
of the brigade, and the 2d now became a part of Gordon's (3d) Brigade, of Banks' 
Division. On March 26, immediately after the battle of Kernstown, Gen. Banks was 
given command of the newly formed 5th Corps, and the 2d Mass. became a part of 
Gordon's (3d) Brigade, Williams' (1st) Division of that corps. The 2d Division was 
commanded by Gen. Shields. While Shields was fighting Jackson at Kernstown, March 
23, the 2d Mass., with the exception of Co. G, was on an expedition toward Snicker's 
Gap. Returning immediately to Winchester the regiment joined in the pursuit of Jackson 
through Strasburg, New Market, and on as far as Harrisonburg. Here it remained until 
May 5, when it joined in the retrograde movement to Strasburg, which it reached May 13. 
On May 24 and 25 it fell back with Banks' command through Newtown, Kernstown, and 
Winchester, distinguisliing itself by excellent rear guard fighting and reaching the ford of 
the Potomac at Williamsport on the night of the 25th. While at Williamsport Col. 
Gordon was promoted to Brigadier General, U. S. Volunteers. 

On June 10 the regiment again advanced, passing through Martinsburg and Win- 
chester and on to a position near Front Royal, where it remained until July 6. It then 
moved over Chester Gap to Little Washington, where on July 17 it became a part of Pope's 
Army of Virginia, Banks' command being now known as the 2d Corps. 

At Cedar Mountain, August 9, the 2d Regiment suffered severe loss. At Antietam, 
September 17, it was again heavily engaged, losing its commander, Lieut. Col. Wilder 
Dwight. Here it formed a part of Mansfield's (12th) Corps. 

After a winter spent in camp near Stafford Court House, the regiment participated in 
the battle of Chancellorsville, May 1 to 5, and in the battle of Gettysburg, July 1 to 3, 
suffering severely, especially at Gettysburg, where it lost another commander, Lieut. Col. 
Charles R. Mudge. 

In August it was sent to New York City to aid in the suppression of the draft riots 
which were still raging. In September it was transferred to Stevenson, Ala., the 11th 
and 12th Corps being now attached to the Army of the Cumberland. In December a 
sufficient number of members re-enlisted to preserve the identity of the regiment and it 
became known as the 2d Regt. Mass. Veteran Volunteers.

In April, 1864, the 11th and 12th Corps were consoUdated to form the 20th Corps 
commanded by Gen. Joseph Hooker and later by Col. George A. Mower. As a part of 
the 2d Brigade, 1st Division, 20th Corps, Army of Georgia, the 2d, a veteran regiment, 
participated in the battles of Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain, and the siege of Atlanta, was 
in the March to the Sea, in the operations before Savannah, and in the northward march 
through Georgia and the CaroUnas. Averysboro, N. C, fought March 16, 1865, was its 
last important battle. When Johnston surrendered, April 26, the regiment was at 
Raleigh, N. C, doing guard duty. 

Marching all the way back to Washington, it was in the Grand Review, May 24. 
On July 14 it was mustered out, but the men were not paid off and discharged until July 
26, when they were assembled for the last time at Readville, Mass.

(INFANTRY) 

Three Months 

The 3d Regt. Mass. Vol. Mil., "Minute Men," was summoned to Boston by Special 
Order No. 14, issued on the afternoon of April 15, 1861, by Adjutant General Schouler. 
Company C of Cambridge was the first Massachusetts company actually raised for 
the war. Embarking for Virginia at Central Wharf, Boston, April 18, it sailed for Fort 
Monroe, arriving at its destination on the 20th, two hours after the 4th Regt. Almost 
immediately it took part in the destruction of the Gosport Navy Yard. It formed a part 
of the garrison of Fort Monroe until July, when it removed to Hampton, Va., where it 
remained most of the time until its return to Boston on the 19th of the month. On July 
23 it was mustered out of the United States service. 

Four companies, D, E, I, and M, which had enlisted for three years and had joined 
the regiment in May, remained in the service, and became Companies B, D, E, and I of the 
29th Regt., which was then being organized.

Nine Months 

Under the call of August 4, 1862, for 300,000 militia for nine months, 19,080 being 
the number assigned to the quota of Massachusetts, the 3d Regt. again volunteered for 
duty and was sent to Camp Joe Hooker at Lakeville, Mass., to recruit to war strength. 
Eight companies were mustered into the service on the 23d of September and the remain- 
ing two on the 26th. Destined for duty in the department of North Carolina, the regi- 
ment embarked on the 22d of October and reached Beaufort on the 26th, the same day as 
the 5th Regt., and proceeded by rail to Newbern. It was not very actively engaged until 
December 11, when it started on the Goldsboro expedition, which occupied eleven days. 
Present at Kinston, Whitehall, and Goldsboro, the regiment suffered only slight loss, 
being little engaged. On January 26, 1863, it moved to Camp Jourdan near Fort Totten 
on the defenses of Newbern. After having been engaged in several minor expeditions, 
one for the relief of Washington, N. C, in June, its term of service having expired, it was 
ordered to Massachusetts. Embarking on the 11th of the month, on the 16th it arrived 
in Boston, and was mustered out at its old rendezvous. Camp Joe Hooker, Lakeville, 
Mass., June 26. 

N. B. Company "I," having been detached from the regiment Nov. 30, 1862, and sent to Plymouth, N. C, 
was there engaged with a force of Confederate troops, Dec. 10, losing two men killed or mortally wounded and 
several prisoners.

and Sept. 26, while the field and staff were mostly mustered December 16. On the 27th 
of December the regiment proceeded to New York where it embarked for Louisiana. It 
left New York Harbor January 3, 1863, and arrived at Carrolton, La., February 13. On 
March 7 it arrived at Baton Rouge, La., forming a part of Ingraham's Brigade, Emory's 
Division, 19th Corps. Here it cooperated with the Navy in the attempt of Admiral 
Farragut to run past the Port Hudson batteries. It engaged in the attack on Fort Bisland, 
April 11 to 13, and joined in the pursuit of the Confederates as far as FrankUn. From the 
last of April until the 30th of May it was in or near Brashear City. During the first two 
weeks in June it participated in the siege of Port Hudson and on June 14 took part in the 
assault. After the surrender of the city July 8, the 4th Regt. did garrison duty in the 
defenses until the termination of its period of enlistment. The regiment started for home 
via Cairo, 111., on the 4th of August and arrived in Boston on the 17th. It was mustered 
out at Camp Joe Hooker, August 28. 

N.B. — The muster out rolls of the 4th Regiment show that it was present at Brashear City, La., on the 
occasion of the capture of that place by the Confederates, June 23, 1863, and that it lost a large number of 
prisoners.
