This loss occurred mostly in the first day's fight, where the regiment encountered the 151st Pennsylvania The 151st Penn. lost 335 at Gettysburg, killed, wounded, and missing. and Cooper's Battery, of Rowley's Brigade, Doubleday's Division. The Quartermaster of the 26th, who made the official report on July 4th, states that there were only 216 left for duty after the fight on the 1st inst. The regiment then participated in Pickett's charge, on the third day of the battle, in which it attacked the position held by Smyth's Brigade, Hays's Division, Second Corps. On the following day it mustered only 80 men for duty, the missing ones having fallen in the final and unsuccessful charge. In the battle of the first day, Captain Tuttle's company went into action with 3 officers and 84 men; all of the officers and 83 of the men were killed or wounded. On the same day, and in the s
eant and his assistants, Hospital Steward and assistants, from ten to twenty musicians, ten company cooks, officers' servants, and other details. Some, also, may have fallen out on the forced march to the field. The regiment took eight companies into this affair of July 2d. Company C was on duty at Headquarters as a provost-guard, and Company F had been detailed elsewhere on the field. Colonel Colville states that the loss on the 2d was 215 killed and wounded, out of 262 ; and that on the 3d, Companies F and C, having rejoined, brought the number in that day's fight up to about 100 men. --(Letter to Major H. D. O'Brien, published in the Picket Guard. ) The casualties on the 3d increased the loss to 221. There were 8 officers and 91 men for duty at the close of the third day's battle. The number present in action on the 2d (262) is the one on which the percentage of loss should be based, or at least the loss for that day. The sharpshooters (Company L) did not rejoin until after t
, Hancock succeeding to the command of the corps, and Caldwell to that of Hancock's Division. While on the march to Gettysburg, General Alex. Hays' Brigade joined, and was assigned to the Third Division, Hays taking command of the division. At Gettysburg, the corps was hotly engaged in the battles of the second and third days, encountering there the hardest fighting in its experience, and winning there its grandest laurels; on tlhe second day, in the fighting at the wheat-field, and on the third, in the repulse of Pickett's charge, which was directed against Hancock's position. The fighting was deadly in the extreme, the percentage of loss in the First Minnesota, Gibbon's Division, being without an equal in the records of modern warfare. The loss in the corps was 796 killed, 3,186 wounded and 368 missing; a total of 4,350 out of less than 10,500 12,363 infantry, 82 cavalry and 551 artillery present for duty, equipped. engaged. Gibbon's Division suffered the most, the percenta
rps, then in the Shenandoah Valley, whereupon its active service immediately commenced. It formed part of a cavalry brigade, under General John P. Hatch, with which it took an active part in the fighting at Winchester, May 25, 1862, and on Banks's retreat. In these operations the regiment, acting as a rear guard, lost 105 men, captured or missing, in addition to their killed and wounded. At Gettysburg it was in Farnsworth's (1st) Brigade, Kilpatrick's (3d) Division, Cavalry Corps. On the third day of that battle, Kilpatrick committed the serious error of ordering Farnsworth to charge a large body of Confederate infantry who held a strong position, protected by stone walls. Farnsworth's men, led by the First Vermont, leaping their horses over the intervening walls and fences, made a gallant but useless attack; Farnsworth was killed, and the regiment lost 13 killed, 25 wounded, and 27 missing. The First Vermont was one of the best mounted regiments in the service. In addition to t
intrenched position; the Sixth Maine, with uncapped muskets, supported by the Fifth Wisconsin, stormed their works, and springing over them were engaged in a desperate struggle, some of the fighting being hand to hand; bayonets were freely used, and in one case an officer thrust his sabre through an antagonist. Good fighting was also done at other points of the line, the total result being a brilliant victory, with large captures of men and material. But the brunt of the fight fell on the Sixth. It lost 38 killed, and 101 wounded, out of the 321 present in action; and of 21 officers engaged, 16 were killed or wounded. This was not the first time that the Sixth had leaped the enemy's breastworks against the blazing muzzles of a line of rifles. In the successful assault on Marye's Heights, May 3, 1863, the flag of the Sixth was the first to wave over the enemy's works. The regiment was then in the famous Light Division of the Sixth Corps. and did not fire a shot during the charg
severe loss, 2,715 of its number falling, killed or wounded in that ill-advised attempt. Accompanying the Army to Petersburg it participated in the preliminary operations incidental to the investment of that stronghold. But its stay was of short duration, Early's invasion of Maryland necessitating a transfer of troops to confront him, and the heroes of Marye's Heights were selected for that duty. On July 6th, Ricketts' (3d) Division embarked at City Point, and, landing at Baltimore on the 8th, marched out to meet Early. This division took part in the battle at Monocacy on the following day, and, although unable to defeat Early, checked his advance. The other two divisions embarked on the 10th and, landing at Washington, attacked Early, whose advance had reached Fort Stevens, within the city limits. The brunt of this fight fell to the lot of Bidwell's (3d) Brigade, of Getty's (2d) Division, every regimental commandant in this brigade, but one, being either killed or wounded.

The summer of 1862 was spent in Tennessee, in the vicinity of Shelbyville, and also near Chattanooga, returning to Kentucky in October, where the campaign culminated on the 8th, in the battle of Chaplin Hills. The regiment was then in Rousseau's Division, which sustained the main force of the attack in that battle, the regiment losing 27 killed and 125 wounded; five of the color-guard were killed, and the color-sergeant was severely wounded. At Stone's River, the regiment was in Scribner's (1st) Brigade, Rousseau's (1st) Division, Fourteenth Corps, its casualties in that battle amounting to 14 killed, 94 wounded, and 4 missing. General Baird commanded the division

In May, 1862, it joined McDowell's Corps, having been assigned to Hartsuff's (3d) Brigade, Rickett's (2d) Division, in which command it fought at Manassas; it lost there 44 killed, 114 wounded, and 88 missing; a total of 246, including the losses at Thoroughfare Gap and Rappahannock; Lieutenant-Colonel Martin was among the killed. The whole brunt of the fight at Thoroughfare Gap fell on the Eleventh. Three weeks later the men were again hotly engaged at Antietam, where 124 more fell under the enemy's fire. The reenlisted men received their furlough in February, 1864, and went home, 276 in number, returning the next month with 314 additional recruits. The regiment entered Grant's campaign as a part of Baxter's Brigade, Robinson's Division, Fifth Corps, in which command it was engaged at the Wilderness and at Spotsylvania, Major Keenan losing his life in the latter battle.

The Fortieth was then in Sherman's Division; its loss at Shiloh was 47 killed, 160 wounded, and 9 missing; total, 216.
