ELEVENTH REGIMENT OF CAVALRY. 

Scott s Nine Hundred; First United States Volunteer Cavalry. 

Colonel James B. Swain received, October I, 1861, authority from the War Department 
to recruit this regiment. It was organized on Staten Island and the first ten companies 
were there mustered in the service of the United States for three years between December, 
1861, and May, 1862 ; Companies L and M were mustered in in August and September, 1862, 
and joined the regiment in October, 1862, completing its organization. October 25, 1862, 
the War Department turned the regiment over to the State, and February 20, 1864, it 
received its numerical State designation. 

The companies were recruited principally : A at New York city, Tarrytown and Tomp- 
kinsville ; B at New York city ; C at New York city, Utica, Tompkinsville and Binghamton, 
and at Blairstown and in Warren county, N. J. ; D at Canton, Colton, Pitcairn, Potsdam 
and Ogdensburg; E at New York city, Southampton, Bridgehampton, Quogue, Tompkins 
ville and Coram; F at New York city, Fulton, Lisle and Brooklyn; G at New York city, 
Troy, Lisle and Williamsburg, and at Newark, N. J. ; H at New York city, Brooklyn, 
Champlain and Watertown ; I at New York city, in Essex and St. Lawrence counties ; K at 
New York city, Auburn, Union Springs, Springport, Ausable Forks, Jay and Seneca Falls ; 
L at New York city, Buffalo, Canton, Lewis and Westport; and M at Buffalo, Canton, 
Fowler and Gouverneur. 

The regiment left the State May 5, 1862, and served in the Military District of Wash 
ington and 22d Corps, and a detachment of it in the 8th Corps, Middle Department, from 
May, 1862; in the Department of the Gulf from March 14, 1864; at La Fourche, La., from 
May, 1864; at Baton Rouge, La., from June, 1864; in 2d Brigade, Cavalry, Department 
of the Gulf, from August, 1864; in the Department of the Cumberland from March, 1865. 

July 21, 1865, those entitled thereto having been discharged, the regiment was consoli 
dated into a battalion of four companies, A, B, C and D; Company A being formed of 
Companies A, F, G and K; B of B, E, L and M; C of C, H and I; and D of D and 
H, and some of the members of Company B. This battalion, commanded by Maj. Geo. W. 
Smith, was mustered out and honorably discharged September 30, 1865, at Memphis, Tenn. 

The regiment, during its service, lost by death, killed in action, 10 enlisted men; of 
wounds received in action, i officer, 14 enlisted men ; of disease and other causes, 3 
officers, 319 enlisted men; total, 4 officers, 341 enlisted men; aggregate, 345; of whom 
8 enlisted men died in the hands of the enemy. The large number reported drowned is 
due principally to the foundering of the steamer North America off the coast of Florida, 
December 22, 1864. 

It, or portions of it, took part in the following engagements, etc. :

FIRST REGIMENT OF MOUNTED RIFLES. 

After the action at Big Bethel, Va., June io, 1861, Major-General Butler authorized 
Capt. Judson Kilpatrick, 5th N. Y. Volunteer Infantry, to organize a squadron of cavalry 
for duty in General Butler s Department. This authority was approved by the Secretary 
of War and Companies A and B were accordingly organized at New York city. Later in 
1861 Capt. C. C. Dodge received permission from the War Department to raise two more 
companies to form a battalion, and Companies C and D were accordingly organized at 
Newburgh with the consent of the State authorities, and Captain Dodge was appointed Major. 
In the summer of 1862 the Governor of the State authorized Major Dodge to organize 
sufficient companies to raise the battalion to a regiment and appointed him Colonel of the 
same, and Companies E, F, G, H, I, K, L and M were accordingly organized at New 
York city. 

The companies were mustered in the service of the United States for three years: at 
Fort Monroe, Va., A and B, July 30, 1861 ; at Newburgh C and D September 18 and 
October 16, 1861, respectively; at New York city E, F, G and H in June, July and August,

i6th N. Y. Volunteer Artillery, who had volunteered to serve with the regiment, were 
transferred to it. At the expiration of their term of service the men of Companies A, B, 
C and D, entitled thereto, were discharged and the companies continued in the service. 
July 21, 1865, the regiment, commanded by Col. Edwin V. Sumner, was consolidated at 
Fredericksburg, Va., into a battalion of seven companies, the men of Company B being 
transferred to Companies E and G; those of F to A; of H to K; of I to M, and of L 
to D ; leaving in existence Companies A, C, D, E, G, K and M, and the reorganization 
of the regiment was completed by the transfer of the 3d N. Y. Volunteer Cavalry, con 
solidated into five companies, as Companies B, F, H, I and L to the same. 

The companies were recruited principally: A and B at New York city; C and D 
First and Second Cavalry Companies, Tenth Legion at Monticello, Grahamville, Falls-

1865. Companies H and D served with the loth Corps from June, 1864; with the i8th 
Corps from August, 1864.
