Brief History[edit | edit source]

The 15th Regiment, New York Infantry was organized at New York City and mustered in for two years' service June 17, 1861.
The regiment changed to 15th New York Engineers October 25, 1861. [1].

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin
[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
