1st Battalion, New York Light Artillery (National Guard)
Brief History[edit | edit source]
The New York State Military Museum website has a unit history project page for the 1st Infantry Regiment.
The Civil War in the East website gives a timeline for the involvement of 1st New York Infantry Regiment in the war.
"Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" by Frederick H. Dyer contains no history for this unit.
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.
