TWENTY-FIFTH REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER 

INFANTRY 

Three Years 

(Re-enlisted) 

The 25th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was a Worcester County unit, organized at Camp 
Lincoln, Worcester, Mass., in the early fall of 186L It was formed largely under the 
supervision of A. B. R. Sprague, an officer of the old 3d Battalion Rifles, who became 
its heutenant colonel. The men were mustered in on various dates between Sept. 26 
and Oct. 12, with Edwin M. Upton of Fitchburg as colonel of the regiment. On Oct. 31 
it received its colors from the ladies of the city of Worcester, and left for the seat of war. 
On Nov. 3 it reached Annapolis, Md., where it was attached to Foster's Brigade, Burn- 
side's Coast Division. It sailed Jan. 9, 1862, as a part of the Burnside expedition to 
the coast of North Carolina. Landing Feb. 7, on the following day it was engaged in 
the battle of Roanoke Island, losing 48 men, 8 of whom were killed or mortally wounded. 
At Newbern, March 14, it was in action with further loss. From this time until May 9 
it was on guard and provost duty in Newbern. In April, 1862, when the 9th Corps was 
organized, the 25th became a part of Amory's (1st) Brigade, Foster's (1st) Division. 
Leaving Newbern May 9, it went to Red House thirteen miles to the westward and did 
picket duty until June 1, when it returned to Newbern and camped near Fort Totten. 
On July 24 it went on an expedition to Trenton, and Sept. 15 on another to Plymouth, 
and Oct. 30 on still another to Tarboro. It joined the Goldsboro expedition Dec. 10, 
and was engaged at Whitehall and Goldsboro with little loss. 

The regiment now remained in or near Newbern until March 18, 1863, when it was 
sent to Plymouth, N. C, returning to Newbern May 3. An expedition to Gum Creek, 
May 21, and another to Washington, July 3, were its chief activities in the mid year 
of 1863. In December it was sent by transport to Newport News, Va. Here in Decem- 
ber and January 432 members of the regiment re-enlisted and returned to Massachusetts 
on a veteran furlough. Those who did not re-enlist were sent to Williamsburg and were 
temporarily attached to the 139th N. Y. Regt. 

On March 26, 1864, the regiment was reunited at Portsmouth, Va., and was assigned 
to the Star Brigade — Heckman's (1st) Brigade, 2d Division, 18th Corps. Proceeding 
to the Bermuda Hundred region the regiment was engaged at Port Walthall Junction, 
May 6, losing 4 killed and 15 wounded. At Arrowfield Church, May 9, it lost 13 killed 
and 49 wounded. On May 16 the regiment was outflanked at Drury's Bluff, losing 
20 killed, 64 wounded, and about 70 prisoners. Here Gen. Heckman was captured. 

Transferred to the north side of the James, the Star Brigade, now commanded by 
Gen. George H. Stannard, was in the general assault at Cold Harbor, June 3, the 25th 
Regt. losing 75 killed or mortally wounded, 122 wounded (not mortally), and 32 prisoners, 
a total of 229 or 76 per cent of the 300 officers and men who reported for duty that morn- 
ing. Thus the loss of the regiment during a period of less than four weeks was over 460 
officers and men, of whom 112 were killed or mortally wounded. 

Crossing to the south side of the James, the 25th was engaged on the Petersburg 
front June 15 and 18 with loss, afterward doing duty in the trenches until August 25,

when it was withdrawn to Bermuda Hundred. Ordered again to Newbern, N. C, 
it embarked Sept. 4, and arrived Sept. 10. In the latter part of the month those who 
had not re-enUsted were sent home to be mustered out. 

The remainder of the regiment; being quartered some distance outside the city, 
did not suffer greatly from the yellow fever which was then raging at Newbern. It was 
now reduced to a battalion of four companies, and as such remained in the vicinity of 
Newbern during the winter of 1864-65. At Wise's Forks near Kinston on March 8, 
1865, the 25th was in action for the last time. 

On April 9 the remnant of the regiment joined Sherman's army near Goldsboro, 
moving from there in succession to Raleigh, Greensboro, and Charlotte, from which 
latter place in July it was ordered to Massachusetts for muster out. Arriving at Read- 
ville, Mass., July 13, on the 21st of the month it was mustered out of the service, the 
muster out rolls being dated July 13, 1865.

Three Years 

(Re-enlisted) 

The 26th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was recruited largely by Col. Edward F. Jones, 
formerly commander of the 6th Regt. 3 Months. The nucleus of the 26th first assembled 
at Camp Cameron in North Cambridge, and was known as the 6th Regiment, many of 
its officers and men having served in the old 6th above mentioned. On Sept. 23, 1861, 
the regiment was transferred to Camp Chase, Lowell, where it completed its organization 
as the 26th Regiment. The men were mustered in on various dates during September 
and October. Ordered to report to Gen. Butler, the regiment embarked at Boston, 
Nov. 19, and on Dec. 3 reached Ship Island in the Gulf of Mexico, where Gen. Butler's 
forces were being assembled for a movement on New Orleans. Here the regiment 
remained until the middle of April, 1862, being assigned to Williams' (2d) Division. 

During the last of April, after Farragut's fleet had opened the lower Mississippi, 
the 26th occupied Forts Jackson and St. Philip. Early in July the regiment moved 
up to the city of New Orleans, where it remained doing guard and provost duty until 
the beginning of the following summer. During the winter of 1862-63 the 19th Corps 
was formed, the 26th Regt. becoming a part of the 2d Brigade, 2d Division. 

The first combat service of the 26th Regt. was at La Fourche Crossing, sixty miles 
west of New Orleans, where the Confederates M^ere making a movement toward Brashear 
City. Here five companies of the 26th were attacked, June 21, 1863, by a force under 
Gen. Taylor. The assailants were repulsed with severe loss. The 26th lost 5 killed 
and mortally wounded and 8 wounded, not mortally. Returning to New Orleans on 
July 15, it remained there until August 28, when it moved to Baton Rouge to join an 
expedition against Sabine Pass. The expedition was not a success, and by the middle 
of September the 26th was back at New Orleans. Later in the fall it proceeded again 
up past La Fourche Crossing, through Brashear City and on to Fort Bisland, at which 
latter place it rested until Oct. 3. Thence it marched to Opelousas, where it remained 
until Nov. 1, when it started back, arriving at New Iberia, Nov. 17, where it remained 
until the close of the year. Early in January, 1864, the regiment moved to Franklin, 
where, during January and February, 546 men, nearly two thirds of the regiment, re- 
enlisted for three years. These men were sent home on the 22d of March and were 
furloughed until the 4th of May, returning to New Orleans, May 20. After several 
unimportant transfers, on July 10 it embarked for Bermuda Hundred, Va., arriving 
July 21. Transferred to Tennallytown near Washington, it became a part of Birge's 
(1st) Brigade, Grover's (2d) Division, Emory's (19th) Corps. 

About the middle of August the regiment moved into the Shenandoah Valley, 
advanced to Berryville the 16th, then retired to Charlestown and to Halltown. Advanc- 
ing again, on September 19 it was heavily engaged at Winchester, Va., losing 46 in 
killed and mortally wounded, including Captain Thayer and Major Clark. This was 
the regiment's heaviest loss in any one action.

After pursuing the enemy to Mount Jackson beyond Harrisonburg, Va., the 26th 
returned to Cedar Creek, Here just prior to the battle of October 19, the members 
who had not re-enhsted were sent home for muster out. On the 19th of October the 26th, 
now reduced to a battahon of five companies, shared in the battle of Cedar Creek, losing 
30 officers and men, of whom 4 were killed or mortally wounded. 

On October 26, while on duty guarding a forage train, Lieut. McQuestion and 45 men 
were surprised and captured by Confederate cavalry near Newtown, Va. 

The regiment remained in or near Winchester, Va., until May, 1865, when it was 
sent to Washington and thence to Savannah, Ga., where it arrived June 8. It remained 
at Savannah until August 26, 1865, when it was mustered out of the service. On Sep- 
tember 12 it took transport for Boston, and at Galloup's Island, Boston Harbor, Sept. 18, 
1865, it received its final payment and discharge.

(Re-enlisted) 

The 27th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was raised in the western counties of Massachusetts 
by Horace C. Lee of Springfield, who became its colonel. The companies reported at 
Camp Reed, Springfield, between the 19th and 24th of September, and three quarters of 
the regiment had been mustered in by September 27. On November 2 the regiment 
entrained for Annapolis, Md., where it arrived on the 5th. January 9, 1862, as a part 
of Foster's Brigade, Burnside's Coast Division, it embarked with the Burnside expedi- 
tion to North Carolina. It was engaged with loss at Roanoke Island, Feb. 8, and with 
greater loss at Newbern, March 14. 

In May, 1862, Burnside's force was organized into three divisions, the 27th be- 
coming a part of Stevenson's (2d) Brigade, Foster's (1st) Division. Expeditions or 
reconnaissances were made to Batchelder's Creek, Trenton, Washington, and almost to 
Tarboro during the summer and fall. Plymouth was visited Nov. 10, and on Dec. 3, 
the regiment returned to Newbern. From Dec. 11 to Dec. 21, the 27th was on the 
Goldsboro expedition, but suffered only slight loss. The winter was without event of 
importance after the return from Goldsboro. 

From March 30, 1863, to April 16, eight companies were shut up in Washington, 
N. C, which was then besieged by Gen. D. H. Hill. The siege being raised, they returned 
to Newbern, April 25. Two days later they were sent to Core Creek on the Gum Swamp 
expedition, again returning to Newbern where the regiment stayed most of the time until 
October. 

On October 17, the regiment embarked under orders to proceed to Newport News, 
Va., arriving on the evening of the 18th. Here it became a part of Heckman's Star 
Brigade, 2d Division, 18th Corps, Army of the James. During the early winter of 
1863-64, 220 members of the regiment re-enlisted and on Jany. 15 went home on a veteran 
furlough, remaining until Feb. 19. During the winter months 213 recruits joined the 
regiment, so that it entered the spring campaign with 933 officers and men. 

After fruitless expeditions to Yorktown and Williamsburg in May, 1864, the regi- 
ment returned to Fort Monroe and embarked May 5 for Bermuda Hundred. It was 
engaged at Port Walthall Junction, May 6 and 7, losing 22 men, 5 of whom were killed 
or mortally wounded, also at Arrowfield Church, May 9, with a loss of 38, of whom 10 
were killed or mortally wounded. At Drury's BlufT, May 16, in the dense fog of early 
morning the regiment was outflanked and lost over 300 officers and men, 17 of whom 
were killed or mortally wounded and 259 taken prisoners, many of them dying in Ander- 
sonville. In this action Gen. Heckman, their brigade commander, was captured. Trans- 
ferred to the north side of the James, the regiment was engaged at Cold Harbor, June 2 and 
3, losing 104, of whom 30 were killed or mortally wounded. In the four weeks ending June 
3 the regiment sufTered 488 casualties, 62 being officers and men killed or mortally wounded. 

The 27th now recrossed to the Petersburg front, being in action June 15, on the 
very day of its arrival, and again on the 18th, when it lost 11 killed and 28 wounded.

August 25 it was withdrawn to the Bermuda Hundred region. In September 179 
men whose term of service had expired were sent home to Massachusetts. The rest of 
the regiment was transferred to North Carolina, where it had seen its first service. After 
various experiences at Carolina City, Williamston, Newbern, and elsewhere, early in 
March, 1865, the regiment proceeded to Southwest Creek near Kinston, where it was 
surrounded by the Confederates March 8, losing 7 killed, 40 wounded, and the rest of 
the regiment numbering over 200 taken prisoners. The prisoners were taken to Libby 
Prison in Richmond, Va., and soon paroled and sent home. A fragment of the regiment 
still performed guard duty at Newbern until June 26, 1865, when it was mustered out 
and sent home. The survivors reached Readville, Mass., July 7, and on the 19th were 
paid off and discharged. 

Of the members of this regiment who were taken prisoners, mostly at Drury's 
Bluff and Southwest Creek, 142 died in Confederate prisons.

TWENTY-EIGHTH REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER 

INFANTRY 

Three Years 
(Re-enlisted) 

The 28th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was composed mostly of men of Irish birth or parent- 
age. It went into camp at Camp Cameron, North Cambridge, Sept. 22, 1861, and most 
of the men were mustered into the service Dec. 13. William Monteith of New York was 
its first colonel. From Jany. 11, 1862, until Feb. 14, it was stationed at Fort Columbus, 
New York Harbor. Here it embarked for Hilton Head, S. C, where it arrived Feb. 23. 
Here it was attached to Gen. T, W. Sherman's force which was operating against Fort 
Pulaski, Ga. It was posted on several islands near the mouth of the Savannah River 
until June 1, when it was sent to James Island near Charleston, S. C, where it became 
a part of the 1st Brigade of Gen. I. I. Stevens' Division. At James Island, S. C, June 16, 
eight companies were engaged, losing 70 men, of whom 20 were killed or mortally wounded. 
Col. Monteith having left the regiment it was now commanded by Maj. Cart^vright. 

On July 6, the regiment returned to Hilton Head, S. C, from whence it was sent to 
Fort Monroe, arriving July 18. Gen. Stevens' command was now made the 1st Division 
of the 9th Corps. Early in August the regiment proceeded via Fredericksburg to Cul- 
peper, Va., joining Gen. Pope's army near Raccoon Ford on the Rapidan, Aug. 16. At 
2d Bull Run, Aug. 29, the 28th was heavily engaged near the railroad embankment, los- 
ing 135 men, of whom 26 were killed or mortally wounded. Here Major Cartwright was 
disabled. At Chantilly, Sept. 1, it sustained a further loss of 99 men, of whom 21 were 
killed or mortally wounded. Here Gen. I. I. Stevens was killed. The 28th was slightly 
engaged at South Mountain, Sept. 14, and heavily engaged at Antietam, Sept. 17, here 
losing 48, of whom 26 were killed or mortally wounded. In these actions it formed a part 
of Christ's Brigade, Wilcox's Division. Gen. Reno having been killed at South Mountain, 
at Antietam Gen. Cox commanded the corps. 

In October Lieut. Richard Byrnes, of the 5th U. S. Cav., was detached from that regi- 
ment and made colonel of the 28th. The middle of November found the regiment at Fal- 
mouth where on the 23d it was transferred to Meagher's Irish Brigade — the 2d Brigade, 
1st Division, 2d Corps. In the assaults on Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 
1862, the regiment lost 110, of whom 36 were killed or mortally wounded. The winter 
was spent in the vicinity of Falmouth.
