notes.--Organized at Pittsburg in August, 1861. Five companies went to Washington that month, the others following soon after. It occupied winter-quarters neat the Capitol, where the time was spent in drills and light duty. It embarked at Alexandria in March, 1862, and proceeded with General McClellan's Army to the Peninsula, where it took part in the operations before Yorktown, and did some good fighting at Williamsburg. It fought at Fair Oaks, in Peck's Brigade, Couch's Division, Fourth Corps, losing there 12 killed, 47 wounded, and 10 missing. At Malvern Hill it made a successful charge, in which Major Poland was killed. Immediately after Antietam the division was transferred, and became Newton's Division of the Sixth Corps. General Wheaton commanded the brigade in the fighting at Marye's Heights and Salem Church, in which the regiment lost 12 killed, 54 wounded, and 103 missing or captured. Nearly all the men reenlisted, and a large number of recruits were received, which enabled it to take the field in 1864 with full ranks. The regiment encountered its hardest battle at the Wilderness, where its casualties amounted to 163 in killed and wounded. Colonel Patterson was among the killed. Lieutenant-Colonel McIlwaine lost his life at Cold Harbor, and Major Coleman was killed while leading the regiment at Cedar Creek. In the latter action the regiment lost 12 killed and 80 wounded.
