Regimental History

"A period of several weeks of almost constant fighting along the picket lines and artillery duels followed; and from the 20th of June to the 29th of July the regiment was almost constantly under fire in the trenches. It suffered losses nearly every day. The fact that the division of colored troops had now joined the corps, made the enemy especially spiteful, and the picket firing was incessant along the front of the Ninth Corps, though suspended by mutual understanding along the fronts of other corps. The casualties during this time were seven killed and 27 wounded, four of whom died of their wounds."

Footnote: "The killed were: Ebenezer Smith, company A; John H. Hall, company C; Henry A. Day and William M. Holsapple, company F; Corporal Harvey P. Wiley, company G; and Henry H. Aldin and Josiah Rose, company H.. Those who died of wounds were: Corporal Henry M. Dudley, John Gaborie, Henry Mora and Larhett Wescott of company H."
