ifth Corps of history is the one which wore the Maltese Cross. It was permanently organized, with General Fitz John Porter as the corps commander, and with Generals Morell and Sykes in command of the two divisions. The first battle of the corps occurred at Hanover Court House, Va., May 27, 1862, an engagement in which Morell'Morell's Division stood the brunt of the fighting, and won a creditable victory. On May 31st, the returns showed 17,546 present for duty. On June 14th its ranks were increased by the accession of McCall's Division of Pennsylvania Reserves, 9,500 strong, which served with the Fifth Corps during the Peninsular campaign, but left it upon imental loss, in killed and wounded, in Pope's entire Army at that battle, occurring in the Duryee Zouaves, one of Porter's regiments. The two small divisions of Morell and Sykes sustained a loss there of 331 killed, 1,362 wounded, and 456 missing; a total of 2,151, out of about 6,500 engaged; Griffin's Brigade not being in actio
, and crack regiments like the Fifth New Hampshire, the One Hundred and Fortieth Pennsylvania, and the Sixty-fourth New York. Over 14,000 men were killed or wounded in this division during the war; yet it never numbered 8,000 muskets, and often could muster only half of that. After the charge on Marye's Heights it numbered only 2,800. Close to it, however, in point of loss stands Gibbon's (2d) Division Formerly Sedgwick's. of the Second Corps, and Griffin's (1st) Division Formerly Morell's. of the Fifth Corps. The heaviest loss sustained by any division in any one battle, occurred in Getty's (2d) Division, Sixth Corps, at the Wilderness, where that divison lost 480 killed, 2,318 wounded, and 196 missing; total, 2,994. Gibbon's Division, at Gettysburg, lost 344 killed, 1,197 wounded, and 101 missing; total, 1,642, out of 3,773 engaged — a loss of 43.5 per cent. Vermont Brigade.
