FOREWORD 

Volume VII brings to a close the records of all Massachusetts men who are known to 
have served in any units of the Army during the Civil War. It bridges the gap between 
the Army and the Navy and contains the records of all officers of the Navy who were 
appointed from Massachusetts and of all the enlisted men in that branch of the service 
through those whose names begin with the letter E. 

When the preface appearing in Volume I was written it was intended that the con- 
densed historical narratives appearing before each regiment, battery or other unit should 
be based on those which are found in Higginson's MASSACHUSETTS IN THE ARMY 
AND NAVY, but as the work advanced it became evident that the sketches appearing in 
that work were not well adapted for use as originally planned. Nor could any condensed 
histories of Massachusetts organizations be found which could be revised and readapted 
for use in these volumes. 

Moreover, nothing existed in published narrative form concerning miscellaneous units 
such as brigade bands. Corps d'Afrique bands, Hancock's Corps, or the First Regiment 
United States Volunteer Infantry, which was made up of Confederate prisoners who had 
enlisted in the Federal service, over three hundred and fifty of whom had been credited to 
the city of Boston. Nothing had been written to explain the existence of the Veteran 
Reserve Corps or the origin of the United States Colored Troops. Finally, no narrative 
material was available which would throw light upon the matter of appointments, enlist- 
ments, and credits in the United States Navy. 

Hence, as the publication of the work proceeded the compiler, Mr. Cross, found it 
necessary to write practically new historical sketches in every case, gleaning the material 
from the original general and special orders and annual reports of the Adjutant General 
of Massachusetts for the years 1861 to 1865, from the pubhshed regimental and battery 
histories, the Acts of Congress passed during the war period, and the Official Records of 
the Union and Confederate Armies and Navies published by the War Department. 

It is believed that combined with the brevity of these historical narratives and intro- 
ductory paragraphs there is a substantial degree of accuracy which will make the entire 
work of greater value to those who may wish to use it for reference. 

John H. Agnew, 
The Adjutant General.

BRIGADE BANDS 

By an Act of Congress approved July 22, 1861, it was provided that each regiment of 
vokmteers in the United States service should have a band of 24 musicians. In pursuance 
of this act all three years infantry regiments raised in Massachusetts from the 1st to the 
28th Infantry inclusive, together with the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry, had regimental 
bands at the time of their muster into the United States service. 

Before the first year of the Civil War was done the numbers of enlisted men in the 
various regiments had become so greatly depleted by battle casualties, sickness, and other 
causes that it became clearly apparent that one band to a regiment was not necessary, 
but that a band to a brigade would in a large majority of cases be amply sufficient. 

Hence, by Sec. 5 of the Act of Congress approved July 17, 1862, it was provided that 
the law authorizing regimental bands should be repealed, and that the musicians compos- 
ing the sam.e should be mustered out within 30 days after the passage of the act. Under 
this section most of the members of the regimental bands were mustered out during the 
first half of the month of August, 1862. 

By Sec. 6 of the above Act of July 17, 1862, brigade bands were established, each to 
consist of 16 musicians. The enlistment records indicate that many of these bands were 
organized in the latter half of the year 1863, many of the best musicians who had served 
in the old regimental bands re-enlisting in the brigade bands. 

Even after the abolition of the regimental bands authorized under the Act of July 22, 
1861, two musiciaus were still allowed to each company of infantry, and in a few Massa- 
chusetts regiments band instruments were purchased by subscription and bands were

organized which acquitted themselves very creditably, but they were never officially recog- 
nized as regimental bands. The " band " of the 33d Massachusetts Infantry was organized 
by Israel Smith of New Bedford, Mass., principal musician in Company "H" of that 
regiment, and was considered one of the best organizations of its kind in the service. 

Mr. Patrick S. Gilmore of Boston, one of the famous bandmasters of his day, who had 
gone to the front in September, 1861, as the leader of the band of the 24th Massachusetts 
Regiment, was authorized by Adjutant General Schouler in Special Order No. 340, dated 
June 25, 1863, to recruit musicians for the Volunteer Service, and he was largely influential 
in enlisting Massachusetts musicians for the brigade bands. The following are the records 
of Massachusetts men known to have served in these organizations.

CORPS D'AFRIQUE BANDS 

Corps d'Afrique was a term originally applied to regiments composed of men of 
African descent raised in the Southern States for the service of the Union, especially to 
those enlisted in the Department of the Gulf. In the early fall of 1863 the following order 
was issued by the commander of the Colored Troops in that department : 

Head Quarters U. S. Forces, 
Port Hudson, La., Sept. 4th, 1863. 
— Extract — 
Capt. M. M. Hawes, A. Q. M., 

Sir: 

In accordance with Special 
Orders No. 217, Head Quarters Department of the Gulf, you 
will proceed North and there recruit according to existing regu- 
lations two (2) bands for the Corps d'Afrique. 

I am Sir, 

Resp'y. Yr. Ob't. Servt., 
Geo. L. Andrews, 
Brig. Gen'l. Vols., 
Com'd'g. Corps d'Afrique. 



MASS. SOLDIERS IN U. S. ARMY AND U, S. VOLUNTEERS 87 

It is evident that both these bands were recruited in Massachusetts, as about two 
months after the date of this order the following letter of authorization was issued by 
Captain Hawes : 

Boston, November 13, 1863. 

In accordance to the above order Mr. P. S. Gilmore of 

Boston is authorized by me to recruit two bands for service 

with the Corps d'Afrique, Dept. of the Gulf, on or before 

December 10th, 1863. 

M. M. Hawes, 
Capt. & A. Q. M. 

Mr. Gilmore, who was rated very high as a bandmaster, and who had been leader 
of the band of the 24th Regiment, Massachusetts Infantry, as we have already shown, had 
been given authority by Special Order No. 340, dated June 25, 1863, to recruit musicians 
for the Volunteer Service of the United States. Hence, under that authorization, he 
proceeded to enlist musicians for the two bands of the Corps d'Afrique. 

One of these bands went into the service under the leadership of John Larkin of 
Charlestown, who had had service in the band of the 2d Rhode Island Infantry during the 
first year of the war. This was known as the 1st Brigade Band, Corps d'Afrique. 

The second of the two bands was led by John Laflin, a native of Charlton, Mass., 
though his residence is given as Boston. This was known as the 2d Brigade Band, Corps 
d'Afrique. Both bands served in the Department of the Gulf. 

The leader and all of the members of the first band were mustered into the service 
Nov. 24, 1863, and the leader and most of the musicians in the second on Nov. 28, 1863. 
The musicians were all white men many of whom had served in Massachusetts regimental 
bands in the early part of the war. 

Both bands were held in the service until Aug. 8, 1865, when they were mustered out. 
The names and records of the 32 musicians are given below.

98 MASS. SOLDIERS IN U. S. ARMY AND U. S. VOLUNTEERS 

HANCOCK'S CORPS 
(United States Veteran Volunteer Infantry) 

In the late fall of 1S64 it was decided by the War Department that a new army corps 
should be raised, the privates to consist only of able-bodied men who had already served 
honorably not less than two years and hence were not subject to the draft. The com- 
missioned officers likewise must have had not less than two years of honorable service. 
The term of enlistment was fixed at one year, as it was assumed that before the expiration 
of that period the war would be at an end. However, thirteen of the men whose records 
appear below enlisted for three years. 

The unit thus established was to be known as the First Corps, and Major General 
Winfield S. Hancock, who had been compelled to relinquish command of the 2d Corps, 
Army of the Potomac, because of wounds received at Gettysburg, was designated as its 
commander. The general's name gave such prestige to the organization that it became 
generally known as "Hancock's Corps", and to this was commonly added the title United 
States Veteran "N^olunteer Infantry. 

General Order No. 287, War Department, which authorized the raising and organizing 
of this new volunteer army corps, may be found in Part III, Volume XLII, Series I of the 
Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Page 728. 

One of the unusual provisions of the above order of organization was that each recruit 
who should preserve his arms to the end of his term might retain them as his own on being 
honorably discharged from service. 

Recruiting for the First Corps did not begin in good earnest until very late in the year 
1864, and some enlistments were made as late as AprU, 1865. In all nine regiments of 
infantry were raised, but before the corps was fully organized the Confederacy collapsed, 
its armies surrendered, and the war was done. 

The records of enlistments and discharges, however, show that most of the men who 
enlisted in the First Corps were held to service until the year for which they had enlisted 
expired. The names and records of the 117 Massachusetts men known to have enlisted 
in "Hancock's Corps" are given below.

FIRST REGIMENT UNITED STATES VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 
(CONFEDERATE PRISONERS) 

At the various prison camps in the North where captured Confederates were confined, 
there were many prisoners who claimed that their sympathies had always been with the 
Union, that they had been impressed into the Confederate service against their wills, 
and that they desired to enlist in the army of the United States. This was especially true 
of prisoners confined at Camp Lookout, Md., where Brigadier General Oilman Marston 
was in command. 



104 MASS. SOLDIERS IN U. S. ARMY AND U. S. VOLUNTEERS 

Under date of Dec. 27, 1863, Major General Benjamin F. Butler, mthin whose de- 
partment Point Lookout was. located, applied to the Secretary of War for permission to 
enlist such prisoners as might desire to enter the regular or volunteer service of the United 
States. The matter was referred to President Lincoln for consideration, and on Jany. 2, 
1864, he addressed a communication to General Butler authorizing the discharge of such 
prisoners at Point Lookout as came within the following classes : First, those who would 
take the prescribed oath of allegiance to the United States Government and would, with 
the consent of General Marston, enlist in the service of the Union ; Second, those who 
would take the oath and whose homes lay safely within the Federal lines. 

Just one week after receipt of the President's communication General Butler directed 
General Marston to present to every prisoner at Point Lookout the following question- 
naire : 

First. Do you desire to be sent South as a prisoner of war for exchange ? 

Second. Do you desire to take the oath of allegiance and parole, and enlist in the 
Army or Navy of the United States, and if so in which? 

Third. Do you desire to take the oath and parole and be sent North to work on pub- 
lic works, under penalty of death, if found in the South before the end of the 
war? 

Fourth. Do you desire to take the oath of allegiance and go to your home within the 
lines of the U. S. Army, under like penalty, if found South beyond those 
lines during the war? 

Those prisoners answering the second question affirmatively were allowed to enlist 
in the service of the United States, and Lieutenant Frederick M. Norcross, an officer in the 
30th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry who had been severely wounded at 
Plains Store near Port Hudson, La., in May, 1863, was detailed as recruiting officer at 
Point Lookout. Under date of March 11, 1864, General Butler reported that he already 
had nearly a regiment of Confederate prisoners recruited for the Federal service. 

The soldiers thus enlisted were credited to various Northern towns and cities, a total 
of 355 being credited to Boston, Mass. Their names and records appear below. All 
served in what was known as the First Regiment United States Volunteer Infantry. This 
regiment did duty at Norfolk, Va., during the late summer of 1864, but was transferred 
in the fall of that year to Fort Rice, Dakota Territory where it was employed against 
the hostile Indians. Here it lost one man killed, one wounded, one drowned, and 34 who 
died of disease, most of the latter during the winter and spring following their arrival. 
The members of Companies B, C, D, E, H, and K were mustered out November 27, 1865, 
while those of Companies A, F, G, and I were mustered out May 10 and 21, 1866.

MASSACHUSETTS ENLISTMENTS IN VETERAN RESERVE CORPS 
(Originally the Invalid Corps.) 

The Invalid Corps, which was the forerunner of the Veteran Reserve Corps, was 
organized under authority of General Order No. 105, War Department, dated April 28, 
1863. 

A similar corps had existed in Revolutionary times as is shown by a Resolve of the 
Massachusetts House of Representatives, adopted June 4, 1781, and concurred in by the 
Senate, July 6, 1781, providing that there be furnished to Captain Moses McFarland, 
commanding the Invalids doing duty in and about Boston, 146 pairs of overalls, 146 
hunting frocks, 146 hats, 146 knapsacks, and 146 pairs of stockings, and that the same be 
charged to the United States. 

The Invalid Corps of the Civil War period was created to make suitable use in a 
military or semi-military capacity of soldiers who had been rendered unfit for active 
field service on account of wounds or disease contracted in line of duty, but who were still 
fit for garrison or other light duty, and were, in the opinion of their commanding officers, 
meritorious and deserving. 

Those serving in the Invalid Corps were divided into two classes : Class 1, partially 
disabled soldiers whose periods of service had not yet expired, and who were transferred 
directly to the Corps there to complete their terms of enlistment ; Class 2, soldiers who had 
been discharged from the service on account of wounds, disease, or other disabilities, but 
who were yet able to perform light military duty and desired to do so. Such men were 
allowed, under General Order No. 105 above referred to, to enlist in the Invalid Corps. 
As the war went on it proved that the additions to the Corps hardly equaled the losses by 
discharge or otherwise, so it was finally ordered that men who had had two years of honor- 
able service in the Army or Marine Corps might enlist in the Invalid Corps without regard 
to disability. 

The records of Massachusetts soldiers in Class 1 above, i.e., those who were trans- 
ferred to the Corps, will be found completed in the rosters of the companies in which they 
originally enlisted. The list which follows is made up of men who belonged to Class 2, 
those who actually enlisted in the Corps and were credited to municipalities in Massachu- 
setts. 

By General Order No. Ill, dated March 18, 1864, the title Veteran Reserve Corps was 
substituted for that of Invalid Corps, and this title is used in almost every case in the 
present work, whether the reference is to transfers and enlistments prior to March 18, 1864, 
or to those made subsequent to that date. 

The men serving in the Veteran Reserve Corps were organized into two battalions, the 
First Battalion including those whose disabilities were comparatively slight and who were 
still able to handle a musket and do some marching, also to perform guard or provost duty ; 
the Second Battalion being made up of men whose disabilities were more serious, who had 
perhaps lost limbs or suffered some other grave injury. These latter were commonly 
employed as cooks, orderlies, nurses, or guards in public buildings. There were from first 
to last from two to three times as many men in the First Battalion as in the Second, and 
the soldiers in the First Battalion performed a wide variety of duties. They furnished 
guards for the Confederate prison camps at Johnson's Island, Ohio, Elmira, N. Y., Point 

122

Lookout, Md., and elsewhere. They furnished details to the provost marshals to arrest 
bounty jumpers and to enforce the draft. They escorted substitutes, recruits, and prison- 
ers to and from the front. They guarded railroads, did patrol duty in Washington City, 
and even manned the defenses of the city during Early's raid in July, 1864. 

An excellent sketch of the history of the Veteran Reserve Corps may be found in 
Volume V, Series III, of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, pages 
543 to 568. 

There were first and last twenty-four regiments in the Corps. In the beginning each 
regiment was made up of six companies of the First Battalion and four of the Second 
Battalion, but in the latter part of the war this method of organization was not strictly 
adhered to. The 18th Regiment, for example, which rendered exceptionally good service 
at Belle Plain, Port Royal, and White House Landing, Va., in the spring and early summer 
of 1864, and in or near Washington City in the latter part of the summer and through the 
fall of that year, was made up of only six Second Battalion companies. 

In the following list the prior service of the soldier is not always shown, as in some 
cases he had served in an organization for some other State, and the details of his earlier 
enlistment do not appear upon our records. Where the prior service is known, reference 
is made to it. 

Again, not all the men whose records appear below were residents of Massachusetts. 
Some resided and enlisted in other States, but were credited on the quota of Massachusetts 
and were paid bounties by this State. In every case where they are known to have served 
on the quota or to the credit of this Commonwealth their records are given.
