egiments by tabulating the original enrollment separately, and stating the percentage of killed as based on that. In the Fifth New Hampshire, which does not appear in the table of high percentages, 17.9 per cent. of the original regiment were killed or mortally wounded. Care was necessary, also, to avoid counting names twice, as in many regiments men were transferred from one company to another, their names appearing on the muster-out rolls of each company. In the printed rolls of the New Jersey troops these men are counted twice in the recapitulation which appears at the end of each regimental roll, thereby increasing, apparently, the quota of men furnished, but lowering the percentage of killed. Still, the printed rolls of the New Jersey regiments are in better shape than those of any other State, and are highly creditable to the authorities who had charge of the publication. In the regimental rolls published by Massachusetts, the names of those who reenlisted appear twice; an
on May 10th, and 80 on May 12th, at the Bloody Angle. It may be urged that, these being three different affairs, the losses should not be consolidated. If they had occurred at different places, as, for instance, South Mountain and Antietam, the criticism would hold good; but this fighting was done at one place, and the continuous nervous strain made it as heroic as if the lose had occurred in one brief charge. This regiment crossed the Rapidan May 5th, with 444 effective men. Foster: New Jersey in the Rebellion. It sustained but a slight loss at the Wilderness, and took 432 officers and men into action at Spotsylvania, of whom 116 were killed or died of wounds — a loss of 26 per cent. Within nine days after breaking camp, it was reduced to 5 officers and 136 men available for action. Next, in percentage of killed in particular engagements, is the Twenty-fifth Massachusetts at Cold Harbor, then in Stannard's Brigade, Martindale's Division, Eighteenth Corps. This loss occurred

These regimental rolls and records may be found carefully preserved among the archives of each state. and it is evident that such of them as were properly made will show clearly and accurately the mortuary losses of the regiments to which they pertain. The states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Kansas have printed and published the muster-out-rolls of the regiments which they respectively furnished to the Union Armies. The name of each and every man who served in these regiments is preserved in print; the record of his patriotism is transmitted, and in time becomes the proudest heir-loom of his family. Some of these publications are, necessarily, voluminous. The rolls of

Some of the companies were raised in other states; two came from New York, one from Iowa, one from Ohio, and one from New Jersey. It organized at Philadelphia, October 5, 1861, and the same month went to Virginia, 1130 strong. After a month's stay in a camp of instruction it proceeded to Fort Monroe, where it spent six months, or more in drill and light duty. Active service commenced in May, 1862, some of the companies doing duty near Suffolk, while five companies served with General McClellan's Army on the Peninsula. In 1863, the regiment was employed on scouting and outpost duty in the vicinity of Suffolk and

New Jersey.--The record of the Jerseymen in the war shows that they were true to the patriotic memories of Princeton and Monmouth. The Jersey troops became conspicuous eaervice. At Fredericksburg the 24th New Jersey lost 136 in killed and wounded; aud the 28th New Jersey lost 193 on that bloody field. The vacant numbers in the New Jersey line occurred through the following reasons: the 16th regiment became the 1st Cavalry; the 32d the 2d Cavalry; and the 36th the 3d Cvalry; the 17th, 18th, 19th,anassas, by the 14th; and at Spotsylvania, by the 11th. The 9th Infantry was stationed on the Pacific Coast during the entire war. The 5th Infantry served in New Mexico. A part of the 8th Infantry was present at Cedar Mountain, where it fought in Augur's Division, Banks's Corps; and some of the companies served as a provost-gu
