notes.--Recruited in Oneida county, and organized at Rome, N. Y. It was mustered into the service of the United States on October 10, 1862, and proceeded immediately to Washington. In November, 1862, it joined the Army of the Potomac at Snicker's Gap, Va., where it was assigned to Warren's Brigade, Sykes's Division, Fifth Corps, a division composed mostly of regulars. It marched with them to Fredericksburg, where it participated in its first battle. When the Duryee Zouaves were mustered out, in May, 1863, the recruits of that famous regiment were transferred to the One Hundred and Forty-sixth; they numbered 283 men, and were a valuable accession. In 1864, a similar transfer was made from the Forty-fourth New York when this regiment went home. The regiment encountered its severest fighting at the battle of the Wilderness, May 5, 1864, where it suffered a terrible loss, not only in killed and wounded, but in captured men, nearly 200 having been taken prisoners. Colonel Jenkins and Major Henry H. Curran were killed in that bloody encounter, while the total loss of the regiment was 20 killed, 6 7 wounded, and 225 captured or missing. In 1865, the regiment was in Winthrop's (1st) Brigade, Ayres's (2d) Division, and was prominently engaged in that command at the battles of White Oak Road, and Five Forks, General Winthrop being killed in the latter engagement while leading a successful charge of the brigade. The One Hundred and Forty-sixth was well drilled, and at one time wore a conspicuous Zouave uniform. General Joseph Hayes, its last brigade commander, in taking leave of the regiment wrote,--that “associated for a long time with the infantry of the Regular Army, the infantry of the Regular Army, the One Hundred and Forty-sixth yields the palm to none.” The war having ended, the regiment was mustered out of service July 16, 1865.
