The regiment embarked for Fortress Monroe June 24, and volunteering for further service, its time having nearly expired, was stationed on guard duty at Baltimore, Md., taking up its position at Marye's Heights July 7 as part of a brigade under Gen. H. S. Briggs. It joined the Army of the Potomac at Funkstown, and while moving with it into Virginia received orders to return to Massachusetts for muster out.
