TWELFTH REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 

Three Years 

The 12th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf., known as the "Webster Regiment", was recruited 
in the latter part of April, 1861, through the personal efforts of Fletcher Webster, son of 
the statesman, Daniel Webster. During the first week in May, 1861, the regiment was 
transferred to Fort Warren, where its organization was completed. Five companies 
were raised in Boston and one each in Abington, North Bridgewater, Gloucester, Stough- 
ton, and Weymouth. On June 26, Col. Webster and a large majority of the ofiicers and 
men of the regiment were mustered into the service. 

The regiment left Fort Warren for the seat of war July 23, and on the 27th it reached 
Sandy Hook, Md., near Harper's Ferry. The summer and fall of 1861 were spent in 
guarding the line of the upper Potomac near Darnestown, Seneca Creek, Muddy Branch, 
and other points between Washington, D. C, and Frederick, Md. Early in December, 
with the rest of Abercrombie's Brigade, it went into winter quarters at Camp Hicks on 
the Baltimore pike about four miles east of Frederick. In the latter part of February 
the regiment was sent into the Shenandoah Valley, Gen. N. P. Banks being in command 
of that district. As a part of Abercrombie's Brigade, Williams' Division, Banks' (5th) 
Corps, it was occupied during the spring and early summer reconnoitering in the neigh- 
borhood of Winchester, Aldie, Front Royal, Manassas, and other places. In May, 1862, 
it formed a part of Hartsuff's Brigade, Ricketts' Division, McDowell's (3d) Corps, Army 
of Virginia. With Ricketts' Division it reached the battlefield of Cedar Mountain, 
August 9, 1862, just at the close of the action and suffered several casualties by artillery 
fire. 

At Second Bull Run, August 30, General Z. B. Tower being in command of the 
brigade in the absence of Gen. Hartsuff who was ill, the 12th Regt. was heavily engaged 
near Bald Hill on the Chinn farm, losing its commander. Col. Webster, and 25 officers 
and men killed or mortally wounded. 

The reorganization of the army in early September, 1862, made Ricketts' Division 
a part of Hooker's (1st) Corps, and as a part of Hartsuff's Brigade the 12th Regt. joined 
in the operations which forced the Confederates out of Frederick, Md., and on toward 
South Mountain. The 12th was engaged in the battle of South Mountain, Sept. 14, 
suffering only slight loss. On the 17th, at Antietam, it fought in the Bloody Cornfield, 
losing 224 officers and men, of whom 74, including Major Elisha Burbank and Assistant 
Surgeon A. A. Kendall, were killed or mortally wounded. Here it came into conffict 
with the famous Texas Brigade and captured the colors of the 1st Texas Infantry. 

At Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862, under command of Col. James L. Bates, as a 
part of Lyle's Brigade, Gibbon's Division, Reynolds' (1st) Corps, it participated in the 
attack on the Confederate right, losing heavily. Among the killed was First Lieutenant 
Arthur Dehon, who was serving on Gen. Meade's staff. The winter of 1862-63 was spent 
in camp near Belle Plain on the Potomac. 

At Chancellorsville, May 1 to 4, 1863, the regiment as a part of Baxter's Brigade, 
Robinson's Division, Reynolds' (1st) Corps was engaged with small loss. At Gettys- 
burg, July 1, 1863, the 12th was in action on the extreme right of the 1st Corps near Oak

Hill, where it performed valuable service and suffered severe loss. In October it was 
active in the operations along the line of the Rappahannock, was in the advance to Mine 
Run in the latter part of November, and spent the winter of 1863-64 in the neighborhood 
of Culpepper, Va. 

In the spring of 1864, Robinson's Division, now a part of Warren's (5th) Corps, was 
engaged on the Orange turnpike, May 5, and on the Plank road, May 6, in the battle of 
the Wilderness, suffering severely. At Spottsylvania, May 8 to 12, it fought on the 
Alsop, Jones, and Spindle farms on the Union right, again losing heavily. At North 
Anna, Cold Harbor, and in front of Petersburg it was in action with loss, remaining on 
duty until June 25, when it turned its recruits and re-enlisted men over to the 39th Regt., 
and started for home, reaching Boston, July 1, 1864. A week later the regiment was 
reassembled on Boston Common and was mustered out of the United States service.

INFANTRY 

Three Years 

The 13th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. had for its nucleus the 4th Battalion Rifles, M. V. M., 
which furnished Go's. A, B, C, and D of the regiment. These companies with Co. E, 
Roxburj' Rifles, were ordered to Fort Independence, Boston Harbor, May 2.5, 1S61. On 
June 29 two companies were added from Marlboro and one each from Xatick, Stoneham, 
and Westboro. The regiment was mustered into the ser^-ice July 16, 1861, with Samuel 
H. Leonard, formerly commander of the 4th Battalion, as its Colonel. 

The regiment left the fort July 29, 1S61, and was sent immediately into Maryland. 
During the late summer and fall it did guard duty on the upper Potomac between Hagers- 
town and Darnestown, Md., then went into winter quarters at William sport. All the 
troops in this region belonged to the di\-ision of Gen. Banks. 

The regiment crossed the Potomac March 1, 1862, and by the President's General 
War Order Xo. 2, issued March S, 1862, became a part of Abercrombie's Brigade, Williams' 
Di\-ision, Banks' (5th) Corps, Army of the Potomac. The spring and early siumner were 
spent reconnoitering in various parts of northern Virginia. May, 1862, found the regi- 
ment a part of Hartsuff's Brigade, Ricketts' Di\-ision, McDowell's (3d) Corps, Army of 
Virginia. It reached the field of Cedar Mountain, August 9, just after the battle had 
ended, and suffered no loss. In the Second Bull Run campaign, on August 28, it was 
engaged at Thoroughfare Gap resisting the advance of Longstreet's Corps. On August 
30, Gen. Z. B. Tower being in command of the brigade in place of Gen. Hartsuff who was 
ill as the result of wounds, the 13th was ver}- hea\'ily engaged near Bald Hill, on the Chinn 
farm, losing 36 officers and men killed or mortally wounded. The 12th Massachusetts 
was in the same brigade. 

Early in September, 1862, Ricketts' Di%-ision became a part of Hooker's (1st) Corps. 
Still as a part of Hartsuff's Brigade, the 13th took part in the advance to South Mountain, 
where it was engaged Sept. 14, 1862, without loss. At .\ntietam Sept. 17, it fought in 
the Bloody Cornfield and near the Dunkard Church, losing hea%'ily. At Fredericksburg. 
Dec. 13, 1862, the 13th was a part of Taylor's Brigade, Ricketts' Di^-ision, RejTiolds' 
(1st) Corps. In the great attack on the Confederate right two miles below the city of 
Fredericksburg the 13th occupied an exposed position but did not suffer severe loss. The 
winter of 1862-63 was spent in camp at Fletcher's Chapel near Belle Plain. 

At Chancellorsville, May 1 to 4, 1863, Col. Leonard commanding the brigade, and 
Gen. Robinson the di\-i5ion, the 13th Regt. suffered smaU numerical loss. At Gettj's- 
burg, July 1, as a part of Paul's Brigade, Robinson's Di%-ision, RejTiolds' (1st) Corps, the 
13th was posted on the right of the corps line near Oak Hill and lost hea\-ily, especiall}' 
in prisoners. During the late summer and early fall the regiment was active in the region 
of the Rappahannock, and in the latter part of November took part in the Mine Run 
campaign. About Christmas, 1863, it went into winter quarters at Mitchell's Sta. near 
the old Cedar Mountain battlefield. 

In the spring of 1864 Robinson's Di^•ision was assigned to the oth Corps. In the 
battle of the Wilderness, May 5 and 6, the 13th was engaged on the Orange turnpike and

later near the Plank road, being commanded by Lieut. Col. Hovey. At Spottsylvania, 
May 8 to 12, it was in action near the Alsop, Jones, and Spindle farms with considerable 
loss. At North Anna, Cold Harbor, and on the lines in front of Petersburg the regiment 
continued to perform active duty until July 14, when, its term of service having ended, 
its recruits and re-enhsted men were transferred to the 39th Regt., and it was withdrawn 
from the front and sent to Washington. Reaching Boston, Mass., July 21, the members 
of the regiment were furloughed until August 1, on which date they reassembled on Boston 
Common and were mustered out of the United States' service.

Three Years 

The 15th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was recruited in Worcester County, the Leominster 
and Fitchburg units being old militia companies, while the others were raised by voluntary 
enlistment in the early summer of 1861. On June 28 the various units were ordered to 
assemble at Camp Scott, Worcester, and there, July 12, the regiment was mustered into 
the United States service with Charles Devens, Jr., major of the old 3d Battalion Rifles, 
as its colonel. 

The regiment left Camp Scott for Washington, D. C, August 8, and on the 27th 
arrived at Poolesville, Md. where it was attached to Gen. Charles P. Stone's command. 
It was active in guarding the Potomac from Conrad's Ferry to Harrison's Island until 
October 21, 1861, when it led the advance to Ball's Bluff, losing in that action over 300 
men of whom 44 were killed or mortally wounded. The winter of 1861-62 was spent near 
Poolesville, over 200 recruits being received before spring opened. 

In February Gen. John Sedgwick was given command of the division, while Gen. 
WiUis A. Gorman was assigned to the brigade. After a short time spent in the Shenan- 
doah Valley the regiment was sent to the Peninsula, where Sedgwick's Division became 
a part of Sumner's (2d) Corps. It participated in the siege of Yorktown, and in the 
battle of Fair Oaks May 31, and was under fire at Savage's Sta., Glendale, and Malvern 
Hill with slight loss. The 1st Company of Sharpshooters became attached to the regi- 
ment at Yorktown and continued with it for over a year. 

After spending most of July and August at Harrison's Landing, on the 28th of August 
the regiment reached Alexandria and helped to cover Pope's retreat from Second Bull 
Run. In early Septemiber it joined in the advance to Frederick and South Mountain. 
At Antietam, September 17, the 15th was outflanked in the West Wood and in twenty- 
seven minutes lost a total of 318 oflficers and men, or over 50% of the number engaged, 98 
being killed or mortally wounded. During the Peninsular campaign and at Antietam 
the regiment was commanded by Lieut. Col. John W. Kimball. 

At Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862, Gen. Sully commanded the brigade and Gen. 
Howard the division. Gen. Couch commanding the 2d Corps. Here the 15th was en- 
gaged but with small loss. The winter of 1862-63 was spent in camp near Falmouth. 

During the Chancellorsville campaign in May, 1863, Gen. Gibbon being in command 
of the division, the 15th was in the reserve at Fredericksburg and suffered slight loss. At 
Gettysburg, July 2 and 3, 1863, as a part of Harrow's Brigade, Gibbon's Division, Han- 
cock's (2d) Corps, the regiment was heavily engaged on the Union left centre losing its 
colonel, George H. Ward, and 36 officers and men killed or mortally wounded. 

On October 14, 1863, the regiment was engaged at Bristoe Sta. covering the retire- 
ment of the army toward Centreville. It was engaged near Robertson's Tavern in the 
Mine Run expedition Nov. 27, and on its return from Mine Run went into winter quarters 
near Stevensburg. 

At the Wilderness, May 5 and 6, 1864, Gen. Webb being in command of the brigade, 
the 15th was engaged on the Plank road with loss. At Spottsylvania, May 12, it was in

Hancock's assault on the Bloody Angle again losing heavily. Its losses at North Anna, 
Totopotomoy, and Cold Harbor reduced the regiment to 5 officers and about 70 enlisted 
men. On June 22 when the 2d Corps was outflanked near the Jerusalem Plank road 
the entire regiment save one officer and five men were taken prisoners. These with those 
who returned from hospitals or from detached service were attached to the 20th Mass. of 
the same brigade until July 12, when the remnant of the regiment was sent home, arriving 
in Worcester, Mass., July 21, where on the 26th nine companies were mustered out of the 
service. Co. I, which had a little longer to serve, was mustered out August 6, and the 
regiment ceased to e.xist. Few Massachusetts units had as gallant a history as the 15th 
Infantry,

FIRST COMPANY MASS. VOLUNTEER SHARPSHOOTERS 205 



FIRST COMPANY MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER SHARP- 
SHOOTERS. "ANDREW SHARPSHOOTERS" 

Attached to Fifteenth, Twentieth, and Nineteenth Regiments Massachusetts 

Volunteer Infantry 

Three Years 

The 1st Company Sharpshooters, known as the Andrew Sharpshooters, was organ- 
ized at Lynnfield, Mass., in August, 1861. The original company numbering 98 men, 
under Capt. John Saunders of Salem, was mustered into the service and left the State 
Sept. 2, 1861. The men were armed with telescope rifles. The company was first 
assigned to Gen. Lander's Brigade, which formed a part of Gen. Stone's force at Pooles- 
ville, Md. In a skirmish near Edwards' Ferry, Oct. 1 and 2, the company demonstrated 
its efficiency in action. It remained on the upper Potomac under Gen. Lander until 
his death in March, 1862, then served for a time under Gen. Shields. During the siege of 
Yorktown in April, 1862, the company became attached to the 15th Mass. Regt. of Gor- 
man's Brigade, Sedgwick's Division, Sumner's (2d) Corps. With this command the 
sharpshooters served through the Peninsular campaign, the Antietam campaign, and 
until the following spring. 

At Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862, it shared the fortunes of the 15th Regt., losing Captain 
Saunders and 1st Lieutenant Berry and 8 men killed or mortally wounded. 

By the 1st of December the company had been reduced by casualties to 18 men 
present for duty. On Dec. 9, William Plummer of Cambridge, Mass., arrived with 40 
recruits and took command of the company. When the pontoon bridges were laid Dec. 
11, at Fredericksburg, the 1st Sharpshooters did valuable service in keeping down the fire 
of the Confederate marksmen on the enemy's side of the river and on the 13th were 
deployed on the outskirts of the city, their fire directed toward the artillerists on the 
heights. At Chancellors ville the sharpshooters were attached to the headquarters of 
Gibbon's (2d) Division, Couch's (2d) Corps, and with that division remained at 
Fredericksburg skirmishing but meeting small loss. At Gettysburg on July 2 and 3, 1863, 
they were again attached to Gibbon's Division and were engaged with loss on the Union 
left centre. About the middle of August, 1863, the company was attached to the 20th 
Mass. Regt., whose fortunes it followed until June, 1864, being engaged at Bristoe Sta., 
Oct. 14, 1863, under 1st Sergt. Gilbreth, at Robertson's Tavern in the Mine Run campaign 
in late November, at the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, and Cold Harbor and in front of 
Petersburg in May and June, 1864. At Petersburg, June 18, 1864, it lost Lieut. Gilbreth, 
its only commissioned officer. 

Soon after this the remnant of the 1st Sharpshooters was attached to Co. " K ", 19th 
Regt. and was mustered out with this regiment June 30, 1865, near Munson's Hill on the 
outer defenses of Washington.

214 SIXTEENTH REGIMENT MASS. VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 



SIXTEENTH REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 

Three Years 

The 16th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was made up of companies recruited in Middlesex 
County in April and May, 1861. By Special Order of June 17, 1861, it was ordered to 
assemble at Camp Cameron, North Cambridge, on the 2d of July. Its companies were 
mustered in on various dates between June 29 and July 12, with Powell T. Wyman, a 
West Point graduate, as its colonel. It left the State August 17, and was in camp near 
Baltimore, Md., until Sept. 1, on which date it removed to Hampton, Va., where it was in 
camp during the autumn and winter of 1861-62. 

In May, 1862, it was posted temporarily at Gosport Xa^y Yard and at Suffolk, Va., 
and on June 12 joined the Army of the Potomac near Fair Oaks. It there formed a part 
of Grover's Brigade, Hooker's Division, Heintzehnan's (3d) Corps. It was engaged with 
hea\'y loss on the Williamsburg road, June 18, and took part in the battle of Oak Grove, 
June 25. In the Seven Days fighting the 16th was heavily engaged at Glendale, June 30, 
losing its conomander, Col. Wyman. Transferred to Alexandria during the last of August, 
it proceeded with its corps to the vicinity of Warrenton Jc. In the 2d Bull Run cam- 
paign, on August 29 it was in the charge of Grover's Brigade on the Confederate position 
at the famous railroad embankment near Groveton, losing heavily. 

After this campaign the regiment remained in or near the defenses of Washington 
until November. About this time Gen. Carr succeeded Gen. Grover in command of the 
brigade. After the battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862, where the 16th was not 
heavily engaged, it went into winter quarters near Falmouth. At Fredericksburg it 
suffered one notable loss in the death of Chaplain Fuller who had resigned and was about 
to depart for home, but went into the fight as a volunteer and was killed. 

At Chancellors^'ille, May 3, 1863, as a part of Carr's Brigade, Berry's Division, 
Sickles' (3d) Corps, the 16th was heavily engaged, suffering severe loss. At Gettysburg, 
July 2, it suffered still more heavily while defending the line of the Emmittsburg road. 
Gen. Berry having been killed at Chancellors\-ille, Gen. Humphreys now conomanded the 
di\Tsion. 

In the fall of 1863 the regiment was active in the operations near the Rappahannock 
and Rapidan and in late November participated in the Mine Run campaign. The winter 
was spent in camp near Brandy Station. 

When the 3d Corps was broken up in the spring of 1864, the 16th Regt. became a part 
of McAllister's Brigade, Mott's Division, Hancock's (2d) Corps. With this command it 
was engaged with loss at the Wilderness, May 5 and 6, 1864, on the line of the Plank road. 
Again at Spottsylvania on the 10th and 12th of May its losses werehea\-y, especially on the 
last named date when it participated in the assault on the Bloody Angle, where Lieut. Col. 
Merriam was killed. After Spottsylvania Mott's Div-ision had become so reduced in 
numbers that it was consohdated with Birney's Division. As a part of this di\asion the 
regiment was engaged at North Anna, Totopotomoy, and in front of Petersburg until 
July 11, 1864, when it transferred its recruits and re-enlisted men to the 11th Mass. and 
started for home. It arrived in Massachusetts July 22, and on July 27 was mustered out 
of the United States service.
