notes.--Organized at Elmira during the fall of 1861, from companies recruited in the counties of Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Erie, Fulton, Onondaga and Steuben. During the winter of 1861-2 the regiment was stationed at Gettysburg. It was mounted during the summer of 1862, and commenced active service in the Manassas campaign of that year. It served in Bayard's Brigade at Fredericksburg, and participated in the Stoneman Raid of the Chancellorsville campaign, at which time it was in the Second Cavalry Division (General D. M. Gregg's), and in which it served until the close of the war. General Crook commanded this division in the final campaign, 1865. The brigade was commanded by General J. I. Gregg, but in May, 1864, the regiment was transferred to the First Brigade,--General H. E. Davies, Jr. The regiment encountered its hardest fighting at Hawes's Shop (or Hanovertown) where it lost 13 killed, 27 wounded, and 2 missing; total, 42. At Beverly Ford (or Brandy Station) it lost 3 killed, 18 wounded, and 61 captured or missing; at Middleburg, 3 killed, 10 wounded, and 19 missing; at Trevilian Station, 4 killed, and 16 wounded; and at Boydton Road, 6 killed and 11 wounded Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick Tremain, a young and promising officer, was killed at Hatcher's Run. The regiment was consolidated June 7, 1865, with the Twenty-fourth New York Cavalry, forming the First Provisional Cavalry. The latter regiment was mustered out a month later.
