notes.--The One Hundredth was recruited in Buffalo, and on March 7, 1862, started from there, 960 strong, arriving at Washington March 12th. It embarked on March 21st for Fort Monroe, where it joined General McClellan's Army, having been assigned to Naglee's (1st) Brigade, Casey's (2d) Division, Fourth Corps. Colonel Brown was killed at Fair Oaks, after which Colonel George B. Dandy, of the Regular Army, was assigned to the command of the regiment.

The One Hundredth was present at all the operations in Charleston Harbor in June, 1863, and, under command of Colonel Dandy, shared in the desperate assault on Fort Wagner. In this action the regiment behaved with signal gallantry, and although the attack was unsuccessful, the flag of the One Hundredth--the one presented by the Board of Trade, Buffalo — was planted on the fort, the daring color-sergeant falling dead beside it. In May, 1864--then in Plaisted's (3d) Brigade, Terry's (1st) Division, Tenth Corps--the regiment sailed up the James River with Butler's Army, and was subsequently engaged in all its battles. In December, 1864 the Tenth Corps was discontinued, and the regiment became a part of Plaisted's (3d) Brigade, Foster's (1st) Division, Twenty-fourth Corps. At the Fall of Petersburg, April 2, 1865, it made a gallant and successful assault on Fort Gregg, in which Major James H. Dandy, an able and meritorious officer, was killed. In July, 1865, the regiment was consolidated with the One Hundred and Forty-eighth and One Hundred and Fifty-eighth New York Volunteers, and on August 28th, following, was mustered out of service.
