153rd NY Volunteer Infantry

Roster of Montgomery County
Members of Companies B, C, 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.



"This regiment was raised in the northern counties of the state, seven of its counties being from Montgomery and Fulton counties, and three from Essex, Warren and Clinton. The Montgomery county men were chiefly in Companies B, C and E, while a smaller number was in F and G. Company B drew almost its entire strength from the town of Mohawk and Palatine; C was made principally with recruits from Florida and Glen; E was the Minden and St. Johnsville company, its captain and first lieutenant, however, being Fonda men. The chief officers and a few men of Company F were from Fonda and other Montgomery county town, but its greater strength came from Fulton county. The local contribution to Company G was small, consisting mainly of officers.

The One Hundred and Fifty-third, like its companion regiment, the One Hundred and Fifteenth, was organized and mustered into service at Fonda, but this did not take place until October 14, 1862. Immediately after its organization it was ordered to Alexandria, but soon did provost service at Washington, which continued for more than a year. In February, 1864, it was transferred to Louisiana, and attached to the Nineteenth corps, being assigned to the First brigade, First division, commanded by General Franklin. The corps sailed from New Orleans on the 3d of July, under sealed orders; but its destination proved to be the Chesapeake. The One Hundred and Fifty-third, together with four companies belonging to other regiments, being the advance of the corps, were, on their arrival at Fortress Monroe, instantly ordered without disembarking, to the defense of Washington, then menaced by General Early's invasion. The troops were hurried through the city amid deep public excitement and general alarm, to a position at Fort Stevens, where they went into immediate action. After the repulse of the enemy the regiment joined in the pursuit across the Potomac, penetrating into the Shenandoah valley, but was suddenly recalled to the vicinity of the capital to oppose another threatened hostile advance.

The One Hundred and Fifty-third soon afterward engaged in the battle of Winchester, in which the Montgomery county companies again did good service. It also participated in the engagement at Fisher's Hill and in pursuit of the defeated confederates. The Nineteenth corps, to which the One Hundred and Fifty-third still belonged, was also engaged in the battle of Cedar Creek, and suffered heavy losses incident to the surprise and early catastrophes of that bloody field. The regiment also formed a part of the picket line which surrounded Washington after the assassination of President Lincoln, and performed guard duty at the military court which tried the assassins. In June, 1865, it was ordered to Savannah, where it did provost duty until its discharge from service, October 2, 1865.
