Busha and Alfred Joyce were missing.
The latter died in prison at Andersonville; the others were never heard from.
Corporal Stimpson was maimed for life and Sergeants Turner and Morrison were slightly wounded.
On May 10 the regiment was in the front line (where it was placed almost without exception all through this campaign). It made no actual demonstration but was exposed to artillery fire.
On that day Sergeant Stevens, who had been recommended for promotion, and Privates Bierne and Harding were instantly killed.
On May 12, while the 39th filled a gap between the 5th and 6th corps, Edward Ireland was killed and Henry A. Ireland was wounded.
On the night of May 13, the command marched through deep mud and pitchy darkness to Spottsylvania, and remained there exposed to the fire of the enemy for a week, when the line was abandoned, leaving pickets to follow.
Robert Livingstone of Co. C, one of these pickets, was taken prisoner and died at Andersonville.
