The 2d Company Sharpshooters was organized in Camp at Lynnfield, Mass., in September, 1861, and, under command of Capt. Lewis E. Wentworth, left the State October 8, attached to the 22d Mass. Infantry, with which it remained during its entire service, its history forming part of the history of that regiment. It took part with the 22d in the peninsular battles, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and the Wilderness. It was mustered out Oct. 17, 1864, and those whose term of service had not yet expired were transferred to the 32d Mass. Infantry.
