notes.--Organized at Hartford, and left the State Dec 16, 1861, proceeding to Annapolis, where it joined the Burnside expedition to North Carolina. It was then in Parke's (3d) Brigade, Burnside's Division, with which it was present at New Berne; its casualties there were 6 killed, and 21 wounded. In July, 1862, it moved to Newport News; here the Colonel resigned, and was succeeded by Lieutenant H. W. Kingsbury, of the Fourteenth U. S. Infantry, who thereupon put the regiment in a high state of drill, discipline, and efficiency. In the meantime it had been assigned to the Ninth Corps--Harland's (2d) Brigade, Sturgis's (2d) Division — with which it marched to Antietam; its losses on that field were 36 killed and 103 wounded; no missing; Colonel Kingsbury was killed there. Under Colonel Stedman the regiment was present at Fredericksburg, but was only slightly engaged. In February, 1863, the Connecticut Brigade moved to south-eastern Virginia, and the Eleventh passed that year in the vicinity of Suffolk and Norfolk, during which it was engaged in several expeditions into the enemy's country, and in some minor engagements. It re-enlisted and received a large number of recruits, taking the field in 1864 with 882 enlisted men present. In the various actions at Drewry's Bluff it lost 15 killed, 65 wounded, and 127 captured; at Cold Harbor, the casualties were 12 killed, 92 wounded, and 6 missing, Major Joseph H. Converse receiving a mortal wound. The Regiment was then in the Eighteenth Corps. Colonel Stedman was killed in the trenches before Petersburg. In December, 1864, the regiment was transferred to Ripley's (1st) Brigade, Devens's (3d) Division, Twenty-fourth Corps.
