In presenting this work to the public, we wish to acknowledge the 
painstaking, enthusiastic, and able efforts of Assistant Adjutant General, Col. 
George H. Turner, who, by long and most honorable military service, was 
especially fitted for the work of compiling this volume. To him is due our 
unbounded gratitude, and the full honor of these carefully prepared records.

INTRODUCTORY. 



The compilation of the military history of each soldier of the Civil War 
(who was a resident of the State of Michigan at the time he enlisted), for 
publication and distribution has been the subject of controversy for years. The 
magnitude of such a work, together with the cost of publication, the exhaustive 
research required and the amount of clerical services necessary in its compil 
ation, have been large factors in postponing, from time to time, the consideration 
of the subject. 

To comply as far as possible with this demand an admirable history was 
prepared by Adjutant General John Robertson, a few years ago, entitled " Mich 
igan in the War," and gratuitously distributed through the generosity of the 
state to the surviving soldiers of the war and to the families of those who 
perished. But this work was general in character, referring mostly to regimental 
organizations, and contained the military biography of commissioned officers only. 

The enlisted men of the army who endured the hardships and suffered 
the perils of war considered it due themselves and their children that their 
names should appear of record in the archives of their country and their services 
noted, that future generations might know the honorable part their ancestors 
bore in the memorable conflict known as the Civil War. Such a record will 
ever be a source of patriotic pride to the soldier who did his duty whether he 
served in the ranks or in command of divisions or corps, and an inspiration to 
the youth of the country who must in the future assume the civic and military 
responsibilities of this grand republic. 

At the annual encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, Depart 
ment of Michigan, held at Pontiac, June n and 12, 1902, the following resolution 
was passed unanimously: 

" Resolved : That the Department of Michigan, Grand Army of the 
Republic, in encampment assembled, hereby request of the legislature and the 
Governor of Michigan that immediate provision be made for the publication 
of the record of the officers and enlisted men who served from this state during 
the Civil War in form substantially the same as those published by other 
states, notably New Hampshire, Connecticut and Ohio." 

The Department Commander appointed a committee on legislation con 
sisting of C. E. Foote, Kalamazoo, Col. Fred Schneider, Lansing, and Alfred 
Milnes, Coldwater. This committee drafted the following bill, which was passed 

M193494 



iv INTRODUCTORY 



by both houses of the legislature in the session of 1903, and was promptly signed 
by Governor Bliss. 

The act is known as Act 147, Public Acts of 1003. 

The first three sections of the Act are as follows, and the concluding 
sections refer to provisions of contracting for publication and auditing accounts. 

The People of the State of Michigan enact: 

Section 1. The Adjutant General shall, as soon as practicable after the passage of this 
act, prepare for publication an alphabetical regimental history of all soldiers and sailors who 
enlisted from and were credited to this state during the war of the rebellion. Such history 
shall contain the name, residence, date of enlistment, date of muster in, rank, promotion, 
wounds received, capture and imprisonment by the enemy, date of discharge, muster out or 
death, and such information as can be obtained from the records of this state, the war, navy 
and other departments of the Federal Government, or other authentic sources, as will correct 
or complete the records, making as far as practicable a complete and concise military history 
of each soldier or sailor so serving; prefacing each volume of such records appropriately, 
with a concise general history of the organization therein named. He shall direct the prepara 
tion and compilation of such records for publication in forty-three, forty-four, forty-five, or 
forty-six volumes, assigning as far as practicable one volume to each of the following organi 
zations and groups of organizations, viz.: One volume to each regimental infantry organiza 
tion and reorganization, numbered from First to Thirtieth regiment; one volume each to 
First regiment of Michigan Engineers and Mechanics, First regiment Michigan Sharpshooters, 
and First regiment Michigan colored troops; one volume to the fourteen Michigan Batteries 
of Light Artillery; one volume to Gen. George A. Custer s Cavalry Brigade, consisting of 
the First, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh regiments of Michigan cavalry; one volume to each of 
the Second, Third, Fourth, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Michigan cavalry regiments; 
and one volume to contain all other miscellaneous organizations and detachments enlisted in 
this state and serving in Michigan and other state organizations; and one volume to contain 
a general alphabetical index of all names mentioned in the different volumes constituting 
the entire edition, showing in what organization or volume each name in the index may be 
found, for the convenient reference of the public in library sets, which index volume is here 
with limited to two hundred copies. For this purpose the Adjutant General is authorized 
to employ such extra clerical assistance and procure such blanks and stationery as may be 
necessary in the preparation, compilation, comparing and proof reading, necessary to secure 
historical and typographical accuracy. 

Section 2. The distribution of said volumes when published shall be made under 
the supervision of the Adjutant General, in the same general manner now adopted for the 
distribution of " Michigan in the War," under section three, act two hundred forty-eight, 
public acts of eighteen hundred eighty-seven. One regimental volume to the applicant of th 
organization in which he served as follows: Any person who served in any Michigan regi 
ment, battery, company or detachment during the Civil War, and has been honorably dis 
charged, or any person who served in any regiment, battery or company from any other 
state, or in the regular army, or in the navy, properly accredited to the State of Michigan, 
and has been honorably discharged, or if such person be dead, then his widow if living, or 
if she be dead, then his father if living, if he be dead, then the mother of any such person, 
or if she be dead, then to his eldest child, if any there be; and any such person who is still 
in the service, shall be entitled to receive one copy of said work, on application and identifica 
tion to the Adjutant General, and if the application for such copy be not made in person by 



INTRODUCTORY 



depositing with the Adjutant General necessary postage to cover the expense of sending such 
book. Also complete sets to adjutants general of other states, and to state and United States 
public libraries upon application, and to such other libraries in this state as the Governor 
may approve, and may be purchased by any other persons who may apply at cost of publication. 
Section 3. So soon as the work of preparation and compilation of the historical records 
herein provided for shall have progressed sufficiently near completion to enable printers and 
binders to make accurate estimates of the cost of publication, the Adjutant General shall 
serve a written notification of that fact on the Board of State Auditors; upon such notifica 
tion, at the earliest practicable moment, the Board of State Auditors is hereby directed to 
solicit sealed bids for the publication, printing and binding of forty-five thousand volumes of 
" A Record of Michigan Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Rebellion, Eighteen Hundred 
Sixty-one to Eighteen Hundred Sixty-Five," and give public notice of the time and place 
for receiving such bids and the requirements of the contract in acordance with this act by 
publishing the same in such paper or papers, and for such a period as will in the judgment 
of the board bring the subject to the attention of the several prominent publishing houses in 
this state: Provided, That the cost of such work complete shall not exceed fourteen thousand 
dollars for the printing, binding and delivery of the entire edition herein provided for; and 
the standard of excellence in quality of material, style of binding, typography and style of 
printing shall be equal to that used by the state of Massachusetts in its recent publication of 
" Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War," copies of which are now 
on file in the Adjutant General s office of this state: Provided, further, That the apportion 
ment of the copies of the different regimental volumes of the edition of forty-five thousand 
volumes herein provided for, shall be in the same relative proportion as the total enrollment 
of the organizations represented in any single volume, bears to the total enrollment of the 
entire edition as provided for in this act; for which purpose the Adjutant General shall 
direct the preparation of, and furnish the Board of State Auditors with a comprehensive table 
of data, showing the total enrollment of the organization, and the total number of printed 
pages intended for each volume, and the apportionment of the total number of copies to each 
of such volumes, for the guidance of bidders for the contract of publishing such work. 

Immediately upon the approval of the act by the Governor, the Adjutant 
General commenced active preparations to compile the work as provided for in 
the bill. No state has been more generous than Michigan in trying to secure 
full and complete historical military data of her sons, who patriotically volun 
teered to defend the integrity of their country, and probably the records in the 
military department are as acurate and complete as any like records of any 
state in the Union. Yet with all the care and research that has been made, 
there are individual histories that are deficient in some particulars, owing to 
the fact that the returns from which they were copied were written in the field 
during active and protracted campaigns, when great battles were fought, and 
the movement of troops continued incessantly night and day, circumstances 
incompatible with accuracy, completeness and legibility, and by officers who 
succeeded suddenly in command by the death of their predecessors. The 
greater number who possessed the information desired have been removed by 
death, and their silent lips can never complete the unwritten history of their 
comrades. 



vi INTRODUCTORY 



It was sometimes impossible in the stirring times of war for command 
ing officers to give authentic and final history of men who disappeared in a 
great battle, as in many cases the bodies of the dead could not be found, and if 
possession of the field was yielded to the enemy the fate of those who were 
made prisoners of war could only, if ever, be learned through unreliable Con 
federate sources. 

For such heroes who died for their country and who sleep in nameless 
graves their epitaph is inscribed in this history as " Missing in action." A more 
honorable or heroic epitaph could not be penned. Thousands of the Union dead 
have been removed by the Government from the field where they fell, and their 
bodies have been placed in national cemeteries, beautified and adorned, as the 
mausoleum of the nation s defenders with appropriate monuments at their rest 
ing places. 

In order to complete some of the records of the Adjutant General s 
Office, which is the custodian of all the field returns of the Civil War, Governor 
Bliss made a request of the Secretary of War, seconded by Senators Burrows 
and Alger, asking that the incomplete, individual records of this office be com 
pleted, upon presentation by the Adjutant General, provided the War Depart 
ment was in possession of the facts desired. For reasons which seemed sufficient 
to the Secretary of War, the request was denied. 

To supplement the records of this office so as to make each individual 
history complete as far as possible, blanks were prepared and sent to all the 
Grand Army Posts of the state, with the request that the names of all Michigan 
soldiers in the Post and vicinity be returned to the Adjutant General stating the 
residence, if living, and, if dead, the date of death and place of burial. 

Three hundred out of the three hundred and sixty Posts of the state 
responded, and the data gathered from these reports have been added to the 
official history shown by the records of this office. Without doubt there are 
some inaccuracies in these reports, but the majority of them are correct and 
will enable many ex-soldiers to locate their comrades, if living, and to know 
their resting places if dead. 

A request was also made of each superintendent of the eighty national 
cemeteries to forward to the Adjutant General the names of all Michigan 
soldiers buried in such cemeteries. A gratifying response was received, and 
these reports have been carefully compiled and added to the history of the 
soldier. These reports of the superintendents of national cemeteries tell a 
mournful story. The superintendent of the National Cemetery at Andersonville, 
Ga., reports the names of six hundred and forty-seven Michigan soldiers buried 
there, victims of Andersonville prison. There is scarcely a national ceme 
tery in the United States that does not contain the bodies of Michigan soldiers, 
and a number of them as many as the cemetery at Andersonville, Ga. 



INTRODUCTORY vii 



Near the close of the war there were many recruits at depots awaiting 
transportation to join regiments at the front, but when it was found their 
services would not be needed, many returned home without the formality of 
a muster out, and their final disposition was incomplete, and in many such 
cases shows "no further record." 

In the compilation of this work no pains have been spared and ho 
research of the almost numberless field returns made forty years ago, has 
seemed too arduous to make the soldiers record absolutely complete if there 
were material existing to make this possible. That inaccuracies will appear is 
unavoidable from the nature of the work. The inaccuracies are not the result 
of careless clerical work in the Adjutant General s office, but are due to the 
hasty compilation of returns in the field, where names were misspelled and 
where the name of a soldier is spelled differently in the muster-in and muster- 
out rolls. 

In cases where the name could not be verified as the correct one both 
are published. When inaccuracies appear in the record if the soldier will send 
his discharge papers to the Adjutant General, the corrections will be made in 
the official records of the office and the discharge papers promptly returned. It 
scarcely occurred to the officers who made their official returns to the different 
departments that forty years after the conflict, an individual history of each 
soldier who participated would be written. Had such been known then, the 
meagre and scant accounts of skirmishes, battles and sieges many of them 
destined to be of world-wide fame would have been extended and written 
out fully giving a comprehensive history of individuals, companies and regi 
ments, a history that would be a priceless heritage today and to future genera 
tions. 

The hardships of a campaign, the duties exacted night and day, the 
constant attention to matters of vital importance, are not conducive to literary 
efforts of biography or general history. It is pathetic to know that thousands 
upon thousands of Union soldiers who participated in many of the most des 
perate battles of the Civil War, have no records of such battles to their credit in 
the official reports. A limited number were fortunate enough to have their 
names recorded by their officers as participating in such engagements. 

Whenever the official records have mentioned the battles in which the 
soldier fought, or wounds that he received, or promotions made, or any gallant 
and meritorious service, such record has been carefully noted and attached to 
the soldier s history. At the commencement of the work it was found that 
many soldiers saw service in more than one regiment, and as the appropriation 
contemplated but one volume to each man, the entire history of the soldier has 
been compiled under his name and placed in the volume where he served 
longest. The primary object of the whole work has been to group the comrades 



viii INTRODUCTORY 



who served in the same regiment, with names arranged in alphabetical order, 
and present him with the volume containing his own military history and the 
history of those with whom he served. 

The soldiers who enlisted for three years and after serving two years 
re-enlisted in the field for " three years or during the war," have the distinctive 
and honorable title of "veteran" placed after their names. 

Careful enumeration has been made of the total enrollment of each regi 
ment, together with the list of casualties. 

The work of compiling these individual histories has been long and 
arduous, but it has been one of gratification and satisfaction to record the 
gallant deeds of Michigan men who contributed so gloriously to the unity and 
perpetuity of the Union. 



Seventeenth Infantry. 



The Seventeenth Michigan Infantry was organized at Detroit in the 
spring of 1862, and started for Washington, D. C, August 27, 1862, under 
command of Colonel William H. Withington of Jackson, with an enrollment 
of 982 officers and men, and upon the arrival of the regiment at Wash 
ington it was assigned to the First Brigade, First Division, Ninth Army 
Corps. It continued to form a part of this celebrated corps during its 
term of service. 

The field, staff and line officers at organization were as follows: 

Colonel, Wm. H. \Vithington, Jackson. Lieutenant Colonel, Constant 
Luce, Monroe. Major, George Collins Lyons, Jackson. Surgeon, Abram 
R. Calkins, Allegan. Assistant Surgeon, Jonathan Beviere, Grand Rapids. 
Second Assistant Surgeon, Albert Daniels, Richland. Adjutant, Wm. V. 
Richards. Ann Arbor. Quartermaster, Charles Ford, Jackson. 

The companies mustered in and making up the regiment were: 

A. Captain, Lorin L. Comstock, Adrian. First Lieutenant, John S. 
Vreeland, Adrian. Second Lieutenant, Richard A. Watts, Adrian. 

B. Captain, Isaac L. Clarkson, Manchester. First Lieutenant, J. Cun 
ningham, Detroit. Second Lieutenant, Abraham Horton, Summit. 

C. Captain, Henry B. Androus, Coldwater. First Lieutenant, George H. 
Laird, Colon. Second Lieutenant, Wm. E. Duffield, Monroe. 

D. Captain, Julius C. Burrows, Kalamazoo. First Lieutenant, Wm. H. 
White, Wayland. Second Lieutenant, Wm. S. Logan, Richland.

Curtiss, Kalamazoo. Second Lieutenant. George Galligan, Kalamazoo. 

K. Captain. Wm. W. Thayer, Battle Creek. First Lieutenant, James E. 
Thomas, Grass Lake. Second Lieutenant. Benjamin B. Baker, Jackson. 

Perhaps no other Michigan regiment had such a serious test of its 
patriotism, courage and soldierly qualities so soon after arriving in the 
field as the Seventeenth. Scarcely two weeks from the time it left the 
state it participated in one of the severest battles of the war, considering 
the numbers engaged. 

September I4th the Seventeenth, with the Ninth Corps, engaged the 
enemy at South Mountain, Md., where the corps attempted to cross the 
mountain through Turner s Gap and drive the confederates from the sum 
mit, where they had taken advantage of securing their position behind 
stone fences and other obstructions, and from commanding points had 
planted their artillery to sweep the narrow roads over which the Union 
troops must pass. 



MICHIGAN VOLUNTEERS, 1861-1865 



The Seventeenth had been so recently organized and was so inex 
perienced in actual warfare that the men did not realize the desperate task 
they were assigned until the enemy s shot and shell were crashing through 
their ranks. 

Almost at a moment s notice the regiment was plunged into the horrible 
realities of a pitched battle. On the crest of the mountain, behind stone 
walls, the enemy awaited the advance of the Union forces. The orders 
came for the Seventeenth to charge, when with wild cheers the regiment 
rushed through a storm of lead and drove the enemy from his stone de 
fences, and sent him retreating down the slope of the mountain. 

In this charge the Seventeenth secured the title of the "Stonewall 
Regiment," which clung to it as an honorable distinction during the war. 
The regiment carried approximately 500 men into this engagement and 
lost 140 in killed and wounded. 

The battle of South Mountain was fought Sept. 14, and Sept. 17 the regi 
ment was desperately engaged at Antictam, Md.. and participated in the 
bloody and useless charges at " Burnside s Bridge." where the Union troops 
were massed in the attempts to carry the bridge, when the small stream of 
water could have been easily forded above or below it. Although the regi 
ment succeeded in gaining the opposite heights occupied by the enemy, it 
was at a fearful cost in killed and wounded. 

The Seventeenth was in Virginia and Maryland until March. 1863, when 
with the Ninth Corps it was transported to Louisville, Ky., and occupied a 
number of places in the state of Kentucky by continuous marching, until it 
was ordered to General Grant, then at Vicksburg, Miss. The regiment was 
engaged with the enemy at Jackson, Miss., but soon returned to Kentucky 
and arrived at Crab Orchard Aug. 24. 

From this point commenced the long and tedious march across the 
Cumberland Mountains to Knoxville, Tenn. After occupying a number of 
places in East Tennessee, where the regiment suffered the hardship and 
privations for want of clothing and rations that were incident to that 
campaign, it returned to Knoxville and was sent to Lenoir Station west of 
Knoxville, to contest the advance of General Longstreet s troops, then 
marching upon Knoxville. 

As the Union troops fell back slowly upon Knoxville, the Seventeenth 
acted as rear guard and fought a severe engagement with Longstreet s 
forces at Campbell Station Sept. 16. During the night and the next day 
the Union troops fell back to Knoxville, where they occupied the entrench 
ments and Fort Saunders. a strong earthwork, thrown up to resist the 
attack of the confederates. Under cover of darkness the Seventeenth made 
a brilliant sortie and burned a house between the lines occupied by rebel 
sharpshooters, but the light of the burning house revealed the regiment 
to the foe, who opened a furious cannonade, which caused the death of 
Lieutenant Billingsly. 

The Seventeenth occupied Fort Saunders during the siege and helped 
to repel the desperate charges of the enemy. 

After General Longstreet marched by Knoxville and into East Tenne 
ssee, the Seventeenth followed him and occupied a number of positions, 
marching continuously, all the time nearly destitute of supplies, having to 
depend for the scanty rations obtained upon the country through which the 
regiment marched. The weather was cold, with frequent sleet and snow 
storms, and the men of the Seventeenth, with their comrades of the cam 
paign, endured these hardships cheerfully, though at times confronted by 



SEVENTEENTH INFANTRY 



starvation or chilled with cold, their threadbare uniforms offered but slight 
protection against the rigors of such a climate. 

On the 22d of March, 1864, the regiment commenced its return march 
across the Cumberland Mountains to Nicholasville, Ky., a distance of nearly 
200 miles. When it arrived orders were received for it to proceed to Anna 
polis, Md.. where the Ninth Corps proceeded to join the Army of the 
Potomac. It crossed the Rapidan at Germania Ford, and on the 6th day of 
May was engaged in the desperate battle of the Wilderness. The regiment 
was actively engaged in this campaign, and in a daring charge upon the 
enemy s works on the I2th of May, the Seventeenth was surrounded in 
dense woods by the heavy lines of the enemy and practically annihilated by 
the loss of nearly 100 killed and wounded and the same number taken 
prisoners. 

After this sanguinary engagement the Seventeenth practically lost its 
position in the brigade for want of numbers and regimental organization, 
and the few who survived were detailed in the engineer corps and at head 
quarters. These survivors served with the army in the positions assigned 
them, and took part in the assault before Petersburg, where that strong 
hold fell into the hands of the Union troops. 

After General Lee s surrender, the Seventeenth embarked at City Point 
for Alexandria, Va., and participated in the grand review at Washington on 
the 23d of May. 

The regiment started for Michigan by rail on the 4th of June and 
arrived at Detroit June 7th, 1865, where it was paid off and disbanded.
