FOURTH REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER HEAVY 

ARTILLERY 

One Year 

In the late summer of 1864 twelve unattached companies of heavy artillery were 
raised at large in various parts of Massachusetts for coast defense. They were numbered 
from 17 to 28 inclusive and were mustered into the service during the latter part of August 
to serve for one year. Their original rendezvous was at Galloup's Island, Boston Harbor, 
and here they were organized and drilled. In September, they were sent to Washington 
to do garrison duty in the forts defending the capital. 

By paragraph 6 of Special Order No. 395, War Department, dated Nov. 12, 1864, 
these companies were consolidated into a regiment known as the 4th Regt. Mass. Vol. 
Hy. Arty., and were lettered from " A " to " M " respectively. Lieut. Col. William S. King, 
formerly major of the 35th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf., a very gallant officer who had been 
wounded seven times at the battle of Antietam, and who had acted as superintendent of 
recruiting service in Massachusetts at the time the 17th to the 28th companies were being 
raised, was made colonel of the 4th Heavy Artillery. 

The regiment performed the duties to which it was assigned in the defenses of Wash- 
ington until June 17, 1865, when its members were honorably mustered out of the United 
States service.

TWENTY-NINTH AND THIRTIETH UNATTACHED COMPANIES, 
MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER HEAVY ARTILLERY 

One Year 

At the same time that the 17th to the 28th companies of heavy artillery were being 
recruited, two additional companies were raised, the 29th and 30th, which remained unat- 
tached throughout their term of service. 

The 29th Company was commanded by Capt. George W. Kenney, formerly an officer 
in the 17th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. It drew its recruits from all parts of the State, and its 
members were mustered in on various dates during the latter part of August and the early 
days of September, 1864. 

The 30th Company was commanded by Capt. Samuel R. Bingham, who bad served 
as a first lieutenant in the 2d Regt. Mass. Vol. Hy. Arty. Captain Bingham was formerly 
from Westfield, Mass., and his company was composed almost wholly of Springfield men. 
Most of the members of the 30th Company were mustered into the service Sept. 1, 1864. 

Both companies were organized at Galloup's Island, Boston Harbor, where the 4th 
Heavy Artillery had been recruited. The 29th Company left for Washington, D, C, 
Sept. 26, 1864, and the 30th Company, Oct. 29, 1864. 

Assigned to garrison duty in the forts near Washington, their experience was almost 
identical with that of the companies constituting the 4th Heavy Artillery. They per- 
formed their duties in a most acceptable manner, and, the war being at an end, were mus- 
tered out of the service June 16, 1865.

FIRST BATTALION MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER HEAVY 

ARTILLERY 

Three Years 

In the historical sketches which immediately precede we have accounted for all the 
unattached companies of heavy artillery in order excepting the 1st, 2d, 4th, and 5th, 
which, by Special Order No. 238, dated May 15, 1863, were united to constitute the 1st 
Battln. Mass. Vol. Hy. Arty. Their term of enlistment was three years. 

The 1st Company was recruited by Stephen Cabot of Boston, under Special Order 
No. 24, dated Feb. 10, 1862, and he was commissioned captain Feb. 26, 1862. 

The 2d Company was recruited by Captain Cabot under Special Order No. 991, dated 
Sept. 29, 1862, and was raised specifically "for duty at Fort Warren ". Caleb E. Niebuhr 
of Boston, the senior first lieutenant of the 1st Company, was commissioned captain of 
the 2d Company, Nov. 3, 1862. 

The 4th Company was recruited by C. Frederick Livermore of Cambridge, the second 
lieutenant of the 1st Company. The 4th Company was also raised "for duty at Fort 
Warren". Lieut. Livermore was commissioned captain of the company April 10, 1863. 

The 5th Company was recruited by Thomas J. Little of Boston, under Special Order 
No. 101, dated Feb. 20, 1863. It is mentioned in the order above referred to as "the 5th 
unattached company of heavy artillery". Mr. Little, who had formerly served as 1st 
lieutenant of Co. "C" 13th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf., and had been severely wounded at 2d 
Bull Run in 1862, was commissioned captain of the 5th Company, June 4, 1863. 

These companies, as has been remarked above, were consolidated into a battalion 
May 15, 1863, being lettered from "A" to "D" respectively in the order of their respec- 
tive numbers. On this same day Captain Cabot was commissioned major, and James H. 
Baldwin, who had served as 1st lieutenant in Co. "D" 35th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf., and 
had been severely wounded at Antietam, took his place as captain of the 1st Company, 
now Co. "A", his commission being dated May 25, 1863. 

In the summer of 1864 two additional companies were recruited by James A. Blanch- 
ard of Boston and George A. Perry of Millbury. These companies were mustered into 
the service August 15, 1864, for the term of one year. They were given the letters "E" 
and " F ", and were commanded by Captains Blanchard and Perry respectively. Captain 
Blanchard bad served as a 2d lieutenant in Co. " A " 43d Regt. Mass. Vol. Mil. (9 months), 
and as 1st lieutenant in Co. " B " of the 1st Battln. Hy. Arty. Captain Perry had formerly 
commanded the 10th unattached Company of Infantry (90 days). 

The headquarters of the 1st Battalion were at Fort Warren where most of the com- 
mand was employed in garrisoning the fort and guarding the Confederate prisoners who 
were there confined, most of them being officers of high rank. However, during the year 
1863 details were sent to Washington, D. C, Concord, N. H., and Newbern, N. C. to 
guard prisoners or conscripts, and about the middle of July, 1863, large detachments were 
sent to Boston to assist in preserving the peace of the city during the draft riots. 

In December, 1864, Co. "A" was sent to Champlain, N. Y. to do guard duty on the 
Canadian border, remaining until May, 1865. In August, 1864, Co. "B" was sent to 
New Bedford, Mass., where it garrisoned the fort at Clark's Point until its muster out.

The greater part of Co. "C" was on duty at Fort Warren throughout its term of service, 
excepting when it was on draft riot duty in July, 1863. In August, 1864, Co. "D" was, 
sent with a body of conscripts to Newbern, N. C. Returning Sept. 25, it went to Concord, 
N. H., where it did duty until Dec. 19, when it was transferred to Fort Independence, 
Boston Harbor, and there remained during the rest of its term of service. Companies 
"E and "F" remained at Fort Warren during their entire term. 

In addition to the duties outlined above. Companies "A", "C", and "D" also fur- 
nished small garrisons for forts at Plymouth, Provincetown, Gloucester, Marblehead, 
Newburyport, and Fairhaven. 

Finally, the war being at an end, the various companies in the battalion were mus- 
tered out, Companies "E" and "F", June 28, 1865; Company "B", June 29; Company 
"D", Sept. 12; and Companies "A" and "C", Oct. 20. 

Major Stephen Cabot was mustered out Feb. 27, 1865, and was succeeded by Major 
John W. Appleton. He in turn resigned Aug. 6, 1865, and was succeeded by Major C. 
Frederick Livermore who remained in command until the last company was mustered 
out.

FIRST REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER CAVALRY 

Three YeaEjS 

The genesis of the 1st Regt. Mass. Vol. Cav. is found in Special Order No. 419, dated 
Sept. 3, 1861, in which Marcus A. Moore, Lucius Richmond, and others were authorized 
to raise squadrons of cavalry. As fast as the companies were raised they were forwarded 
to Camp Brigham, Readville, Mass., and were there organized into a regiment of twelve 
companies. The men were mustered in on various dates mostly from Sept. 12 to Oct. 31, 
1861. Colonel Robert Williams of Virginia, an old Regular Army officer, was appointed 
to command the regiment. It was organized into three battalions of four companies each, 
commanded respectively by Majors Greely S. Curtis, John H. Edson, and William F. 
White. 

These three battalions left for the seat of war on Dec. 25, 27, and 29 respectively. 
The 1st Battalion under Major Curtis proceeded to Annapolis, Md., where it went into 
camp for a month or more. The 2d and 3d Battalions were detained at New York until 
January 13, 1862, when they were sent to Hilton Head as a part of the force under Genl. 
T. W. Sherman. The 1st Battalion came down to Hilton Head in February, 1862, but 
before it arrived the 2d Battalion had been sent to Beaufort, S. C. This left the 1st and 
3d Battalions at Hilton Head. In May the 1st and parts of the 2d and 3d Battalions 
under Major Curtis took part in the James Island demonstration against Charleston, 
S. C. About Aug. 19, the 1st and 2d Battalions were ordered to Fort Monroe and thence 
via Aquia Creek to Alexandria. Thereafter they were attached to the Army of 
the Potomac. 

In July, 1862, Major Atherton A. Stevens was placed in command of the 3d BattaHon 
— Co's "I", "K", "L", and "M" — which was left at Beaufort and Hilton Head, 
S. C. Major Stevens' command operated on the South Carolina coast as a detached bat- 
talion of the 1st Mass. Cavalry until Aug. 4, 1863, when by Special Order No. 346, War 
Department, it was permanently detached and made an Independent Battalion, Mass. 
Cavalry. As such it operated until the latter part of the following winter when by Special 
Order No. 70, War Department, dated Feb. 12, 1864, it was assigned to the 4th Regt. 
Mass. Cavalry becoming the 1st Battalion of that regiment. 

The 1st and 2d Battalions of the 1st Regt. Mass. Cavalry debarked at Alexandria, 
Va., Sept. 2, 1862, both men and horses being in very poor condition, the men being im- 
properly clothed and many of the horses unshod. With such part of his conmiand as 
was fit for the field Colonel Williams participated in the Antietam campaign, losing 40 
men as prisoners at Poolesville, Sept. 5. About Oct. 1 the regiment proceeded to St. 
James' College near Hagerstown, Md. Here it was attached to General Averill's Cavalry 
Brigade. While the greater part of four companies remained at St. James' College refit- 
ting and recuperating, two squadrons — Co's "B ", "E ", "F ", and "G" — under Lieut. 
Col. H. B. Sargent, were detached Oct. 19, and crossed the Potomac with the 5th Corps. 
These squadrons were engaged with loss at Snicker's Ferry, Nov. 3, and did not rejoin 
the rest of the regiment until the last of November. 

Colonel Williams resigned and left the regiment Nov. 2. Lieut. Col. Sargent now 
became colonel and Major Greely S. Curtis lieutenant colonel, while the majors were now

S. E. Chamberlain and H. L. Higginson. The inactive part of the regiment remained at 
Hagerstown until Nov. 14, when it marched via Frederick City to Washington, D. C, 
arriving on the 16th. On the 27th the bulk of the regiment was reunited at Potomac 
Creek, Colonel Sargent having arrived with his detachment. 

During the Fredericksburg campaign Co. "F" was on duty at General Hooker's 
headquarters, but the regiment as a whole was not engaged. In Jany., 1863, the regiment 
participated in Burnside's "Mud March," then returned to Potomac Creek and went into 
winter quarters. 

In February, 1863, the Cavalry Corps was reorganized, the 1st Massachusetts becom- 
ing a part of Duffie's (1st) Brigade, Averill's (2d) Division. A portion of the regiment 
was on picket or on special duty most of the time during the late winter and early spring. 
Its first engagement of note in the spring of 1863 was Kelly's Ford, fought March 17. At 
Brandy Station, June 9, it was engaged with loss. 

The battle of Aldie, Va., fought June 17, 1863, was the most severe engagement in 
which the regiment ever participated. Here it lost 24 killed, 42 wounded, and 88 pris- 
oners. Among the killed was Lieut. Hugh Carey, and among the severely wounded were 
Maj. H. L. Higginson, Capt. L. M. Sargent, and Lieut. G. M. Fillebrown. At Gettys- 
burg a fortnight later the 1st Mass. Cavalry was not in action. It was employed on the 
second day in bringing up the 6th Corps, and on the third day as provost guard at army 
headquarters in stopping stragglers and in guarding prisoners. In the pursuit of the Con- 
federates the regiment was engaged at Jones' Cross Roads, July 11, with slight loss. Dur- 
ing August, September, and October it was occupied in outpost duty along the Rappahan- 
nock, being engaged with the enemy at Culpepper, Sept. 13, and Auburn, Oct. 14, with 
loss. In the Mine Run campaign in late November it was in action near New Hope 
Church and at Parker's Store with heavy loss. 

All through the trying experiences of the summer and fall of 1863 the regiment had 
formed a part of the 1st Brigade of Gregg's (2d) Division, Cavalry Corps. 

About Dec. 11 the regiment settled down into winter quarters at Warrenton, Va., 
but all through the winter season detachments were engaged in outpost duty, and early 
in January the entire regiment went on an expedition through Chester Gap to Front Royal 
in the Shenandoah returning at the end of the fourth day by way of Manassas Gap and 
Salem to Warrenton. Here the command remained until the latter part of April when the 
Wilderness campaign was about to begin. 

During the fall of 1863 and the succeeding winter a new battalion of four companies 
was recruited in Massachusetts. The new Co. "I" was mustered in Dec. 5, 1863 ; Co. 
"K", Dec. 29; Co. "L", Jany. 6, 1864; and Co. "M", Jany. 14. The new battalion was 
in command of Maj. L. M. Sargent, and it reached the camp at Warrenton, March 24 in a 
driving snowstorm. General Davies now commanded the 1st Brigade. 

On May 4, 1864, the regiment crossed the Rapidan at Ely's Ford, helping to cover the 
advance of the 2d Corps. Proceeding southward to Todd's Tavern the regiment was there 
engaged on the 5th losing 3 killed, 25 wounded, and 6 missing. 

Due to a disagreement between Generals Meade and Sheridan, on May 9 the entire 
Cavalry Corps was sent on a raid toward Richmond, in the rear of Lee's army. In a sharp 
engagement at Ashland, May 11, Lieut. Edward Payson Hopkins was killed, 10 
men wounded, and 12 captured. Not being in sufl^cient force to take Richmond, the 
cavalry diverged to the left and the raid ended in the clover fields on the James. 

Rejoining the Army of the Potomac, on May 28 it met the enemy at Hawes' Shop 
losing Lieut. Ward well and one man killed and several wounded. After being engaged 
at Cold Harbor the 1st to the 3d of June, on the 6th it started on the Trevilian raid. At 



FIRST REGIMENT MASS. VOLUNTEER CAVALRY 131 

St. Mary's Church it was engaged with slight loss. Crossing the James June 25, it pro- 
ceeded to Prince George Court House. Recrossing in July it operated in the region of 
Malvern Hill and Charles City Cross Roads during the Deep Bottom campaigns. Moving 
south of the James again on Aug. 19, it was active in the region south of Petersburg until 
Nov. 18 when it went into winter quarters near the Westbrook House. During this period 
it was engaged with loss at Vaughan road, Oct. 1, and Boydton road, Oct. 27. 

About Sept. 30 Lieut. Col. S. E. Chamberlain became colonel and Maj. L. M. Sar- 
gent lieutenant colonel. On Oct. 25 the original members who had not re-enlisted were 
discharged, and the regiment was reduced to a battalion of seven companies. In a raid 
down the Weldon Railroad, at Bellfield, Dec. 9, Lieut. Col. Sargent was killed by a shell. 
Maj. John Tewksbury now became lieutenant colonel. 

On March 17, 1865, the regiment was sent to City Point to do provost duty. Dur- 
ing the assault on Petersburg, April 2, it was on duty in the rear of the 9th Corps. It was 
active during April in arresting deserters and stragglers in the region west of Petersburg. 
On May 2 it started for Washington, reached Arlington Heights about the middle of the 
month, and participated in the Grand Review May 23. It did escort duty until June 26 
when it was mustered out and started for Massachusetts. Arriving at ReadviUe, Mass., 
June 29, the men were furloughed until July 18 when they reassembled and were paid off 
and disbanded.

SECOND REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER CAVALRY 

Three Years 

The 2d Regt. Mass. Vol. Cav. was recruited during the fall of 1862 and the winter 
following. The first companj^, "A", was raised in California by Capt. J. Sewell Reed, 
and was known as the "California Hundred". This company was mustered in at San 
Francisco, Dec. 10, 1862. It arrived in Boston, Jany. 3, 1863, and was assigned to the 
quota of Boston. Later four more companies were raised in California by Major Thomp- 
son, "E", "F", "L", and "M", and became known as the "California Battalion". 
The remaining companies were raised largely in Boston and other places in the easterly 
part of Massachusetts, the last company, "H ", not being mustered in until June 20, 1863. 
The regiment rendezvoused at Camp Meigs, Readville. Charles Russell Lowell, Jr., who 
had been a captain in the 6th Regt. U. S. Cavalry, and had served on the staff of Maj. 
Genl. George B. McClellan from July to November, 1862, was commissioned colonel of the 
regiment. 

Companies "A", "B", "C", "D", and "K" left for Baltimore, Md., Feb. 12, 1863, 
and proceeded thence to Fort Monroe and from there to Gloucester Point, opposite York- 
town, Va. This battalion under Maj. Caspar Crowninshield was engaged in various raids 
and expeditions in southeastern Virginia until Aug. 6, when it reported to Colonel Lowell 
who was at Centreville with the main body of the regiment. 

The main body of the regiment left Readville, Mass. for the seat of war May 11, pro- 
ceeding to Washington and camping near that city until July 19, during which period it 
was engaged in raids and scouting expeditions in the region between Washington and the 
Blue Ridge. 

Having been joined by Major Crowninshield's Battalion, Aug. 6, the career of the 
regiment as a unit began. At Coyle Tavern near Fairfax Court House, Aug. 24, 1863, 
in a fight with Mosby's Battalion the 2d Cavalry lost two killed, two wounded, and sev- 
eral prisoners. About Sept. 15 the 3d Battalion under Major Thompson was transferred 
to Muddy Brook, Md., where it did picket and patrol duty during the fall and winter. 
The 1st and 2d Battalions at Centreville were commanded by Major Forbes and Captain 
Reed, Major Crowninshield commanding the regiment and Colonel Lowell the brigade. 
These battalions were transferred to Vienna in October and spent the following winter 
guarding against forays by guerilla bands. 

The first severe engagement of the regiment was at Dranesville, Feb. 22, 1864, where 
Captain Reed and about 125 of his men were surprised and defeated, the captain and nine 
men being killed, seven wounded, and 57 captured. When spring opened several line 
officers were discharged to accept commissions in the 4th and 5th Regiments of Massa- 
chusetts Cavalry. The 2d Regiment was active all through the spring of 1864 doing 
patrol duty and making raids in the northern part of Virginia. On April 24 its camp was 
moved to Falls Church. In June a detachment went to the Wilderness battlefield and 
brought off about fifty wounded men who had been left there. 

On July 6, Major Forbes, commanding a detachment of about 150 men, was defeated 
by Mosby's men in a fight at Mount Zion Church near Aldie, Va., losing eight killed, nine 
wounded, and 38 prisoners including Major Forbes himself and Chaplain Humphreys. 
Captain Stone was mortally wounded in this action.

Operating against General Early in July, 1864, during the latter's raid toward Wash- 
ington, the 2d Cavalry was engaged at Fort Stevens on July 12, and at Rockville, Md. on 
the 13th, suffering a loss of six killed and about 100 wounded or captured. The regiment 
followed with General Wright's (6th) Corps in pursuit of the enemy until Early's force had 
retired across the Shenandoah River, then returned to its camp at Falls Church. Again 
reporting to General Wright at Rockville, Md., July 26, the regiment was soon after as- 
signed to the 3d Brigade, 1st Division, Cavalry Corps, but about Sept. 9 it was transferred 
to the Reserve Brigade of the same Division, the Brigade being commanded by Colonel 
Lowell. For twenty-one consecutive days in the month of August the regiment was under 
fire. Captain Phillips was wounded on the 22d, Captain Eigenbrodt was killed on the 
25th at Halltown near Harper's Ferry, Lieutenant Meader was killed on the 26th near 
Charlestown, and during the month the regiment lost six men killed, 28 wounded, and 20 
prisoners. In reconnaissances on Opequan Creek between Sept. 7 and 13 it was frequently 
engaged with loss, on the 13th at Locke's Ford loping four men mortally wounded and four 
wounded, not mortally. At Winchester, Sept. 19, its loss was slight. Pursuing the enemy 
as far as Waynesboro, here on Sept. 28 it had three killed, five wounded, and two captured. 
It was engaged at Round Top Mountain, Oct. 8, at Tom's Brook, Oct. 9, and in the battle 
of Cedar Creek, October 19, losing in the latter action 10 killed, and 22 wounded. Here 
Colonel Lowell fell mortally wounded, dying the next morning in Middletown. Captain 
Smith also died of wounds on the evening after the battle. Lieutenant Colonel Crownin- 
shield now became colonel. Major Forbes, lieutenant colonel, and Captain Rumery, major. 

During the rest of the fall the regiment was active in the lower valley, and the close 
of the year found it in camp on the Front Royal road a few miles south of Winchester. 
Late in February, 1865, it left the Valley and proceeded to join the Army of the Potomac 
before Petersburg. Outpost and scouting duty north and east of Richmond occupied 
the regiment until the last of March. On March 31, and April 1 the 2d Cavalry was 
sharply engaged at Dinwiddle Court House and Five Forks, losing on the 31st Lieutenant 
Munger killed, and Lieutenants Papanti and Thompson wounded. Lieutenant Tucker 
was wounded April 1. In all on these two days the regiment lost about 20 officers and 
men in killed, wounded, and missing. These engagements broke the Confederate right, 
uncovered the Southside Railroad, and insured the fall of Petersburg. 

Following in pursuit of the enemy, after the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond, 
on the 6th of April it participated in the battle of Sailor's Creek in which Generals Ewell, 
Kershaw, and Custis Lee were captured and Ewell's Corps broken up. On the evening of 
April 8 it assisted in the capture of Lee's supply trains at Appomattox Station, and on the 
following morning was with the troops which stopped the further progress of the Army of 
Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House. 

Returning to Petersburg, April 18, six days later it started for North Carolina to 
operate against Johnston's army, but, that force surrendering April 26, the 2d Cavalry 
soon returned to the north side of the Appomattox River. On May 10, it started north- 
ward, reaching Washington, D. C, May 21. After the Grand Review, May 23, the regi- 
ment went into camp near Cloud's Mill and later at Fairfax Court House. Here, on the 
20th of July, it was mustered out of the United States service. Two days later it started 
for Massachusetts, returning to its old rendezvous at Camp Meigs, Readville, where, on 
August 3, 1865, the men were paid off and the regiment disbanded.
