13th NY Heavy Artillery, Companies E, F and G

Roster of Montgomery County Members of Companies E, F and G


From "The History of Montgomery County" by Washington Frothingham

The information about this regiment comes from "The History of Montgomery County" by Washington Frothingham, published in 1892 in Syracuse, NY by D. Mason & Co, Publishers and Printers.



"The Montgomery county enlistment in this regiment was quite small, its total being only thirty-four men, who were scattered through Companies E, F and G. On May 11, 1863, the War Department authorized Col. William A. Howard to organize the regiment in New York. The men who had already been recruited by Maj. H.B. Williams for the Eleventh New York Volunteer artillery, but not assigned to companies, were transferred to this command, which was strengthened by also receiving the men enlisted for the proposed Twenty-ninth New York Volunteer Infantry, and for the Thirty-sixth Independent Battery of New York Heavy Artillery. The new levies were mustered into service for three years, but the regiment also contained some one year enlistments. The command in fact included men from all parts of the state. The regiment was mustered in by companies as soon as recruited during the latter part of 1863 and the early part of 1864, and its service in the field was of such a detached character that no regular narrative of its history can be given, except that found in its list of engagements. When the short term men were mustered out the remainder were consolidated, so that some of the companies lost their identity."
