notes.--Organized at Auburn, N. Y., from companies recruited in Cayuga and Wayne counties. The regiment was mustered into service on August 20, 1862, and left Auburn the following day for Harper's Ferry, where, after joining that ill-fated garrison, it was included in its surrender shortly afterwards. The men were released on parole, but were not declared exchanged until December, 1862, when they entered the field again, and went into winter quarters at Centreville, Va., remaining there several months in a brigade commanded by General Alex. Hays. On June 25, 1863, the brigade joined the Second Corps which was then marching by on its way to Gettysburg. The regiment left two companies on guard at Accotink Bridge; with the remaining eight companies, numbering 390 men, it was engaged at Gettysburg on the second day of the battle, in the brilliant and successful charge of Willard's Brigade, losing there 58 killed, 177 wounded, and 14 missing; total, 249. The regiment did some more good fighting at the Wilderness, where it lost 42 killed, 119 wounded, and 17 missing; total, 178--over half of its effective strength. Its casualties in the fighting around Spotsylvania amounted to 22 killed, 37 wounded, and 13 missing. From Gettysburg until the end, the regiment fought under Hancock in the Second Corps, participating in every battle of that command. While on the Gettysburg campaign, and subsequently at Bristoe Station, Mine Run and Morton's Ford, the regiment was attached to the Third Brigade, Third Division (Alex. Hays's). Just before the Wilderness campaign it was placed in Frank's (3d) Brigade, Barlow's (1st) Division. This brigade (Frank's) was also composed entirely of New York troops, the 39th, 111th, 125th and 126th, to which were added in April, 1864, the 52d and 57th; and, later on, the 7th N. Y.; all crack fighting regiments.
