Appendix II -Regimental Histories

In 1908, a Civil War veteran, Frederick H. Dyer, prepared a compendium setting forth regimental histories as a result of the information obtained from the official records of the Union and Confederate armies. A special section was set aside for the United States Colored Troops covering cavalry, infantry and artillery regiments from their formation to their disbandment. Although all the officially recognized black regiments are noted, Dyer did not include those regiments that retained a state designation throughout the War. Many regiments had been incorporated into officially sanctioned United States Army regiments after the government recognized the enlistment of black soldiers.

Rather than list all known regiments, only those for which a Camden County resident is confirmed has been included. To get some idea of where the veteran originally came from, note should be taken of where the regiment was first organized. Although it is extremely possible that a New Jersey African American soldier served in each of the black regiments organized by the Union Army, the records would no doubt indicate that the majority served in those units organized at Camp William Penn or some of the specific state units.

Of those regiments formed at Camp William Penn, the 22nd, 25th, 32nd, 41st, 43rd and 45th had the most New Jerseyans and most likely Camden County residents. The 22nd Regiment USCT had approximately 681 New Jersey residents for which New Jersey took credit. Originally detailed to garrison duty at Yorktown, Virginia, and construction duties at Wilson’s Wharf along the James River, the 22nd finally saw action on June 15, 1864, when, as part of the all white Eighteenth Corps, they took part on the attack on Petersburg, Virginia, a railhead south of the Confederate capitol at Richmond.

Despite a good performance by the 22nd, which lost 143 men killed and wounded in the battle, the attack failed resulting in a decision by Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant to lay seige to Petersburg and Richmond. After Petersburg, the 22nd took part in the Battle of New Market Heights, Virginia, on September 29, 1864, which was the result of an attempt to prevent the Confederates from sending reinforcements to the Shenandoah Valley. After New Market Heights, the 22nd participated in the battles of Fair Oaks and Chaffin’s Farm, both in Virginia.

In December, 1864, the 22nd was reassigned to the newly formed Twenty-Fifth Corps which was the only all black corps in United States history. As part of the Twenty Fifth Corps, the 22nd was one of the first units to enter the Confederate capitol of Richmond after its fall. With the Confederate surrender on April 9, 186S, the 22nd marched to Washington, D.C., where it participated in President Abraham Lincoln’s funeral procession and the hunt for John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators.

The next assignment for the 22nd has been and continues to be the subject of controversy amongst historians. The 22nd was transported by ship to Galveston, Texas, to patrol the border along the Rio Grande River between Texas and Mexico. The official reason appears to be the French invasion of Mexico and the installation of “Emperor” Maximillian on the throne of Mexico, a violation of the Monroe Doctrine, which had been ignored by the United States government during the War. Some historians believe that the movement of the all black Twenty-Fifth Corps to Mexico was to avoid a flood in the job-market so soon after the surrender and to avoid renewing a flame in the beaten South.

The reality of beaten white Confederate soldiers going home to possibly vie for their old jobs with victorious Union soldiers, who could have been their former slaves, was obviously a consideration of the administration in keeping the black units in uniform. The 22nd stayed in Texas until October, 1865, when it returned to Philadelphia to be mustered out.

The 25th Regiment USCT, organized at Camp William Penn had approximately 531 black soldiers for which New Jersey took credit. In March, 1864, the 25th was transported to Louisiana where it took part in the defense of New Orleans and thereafter to Florida for additional defense work. The 25th was never engaged in combat and was returned to Philadelphia in December, 1865, for muster- out. The 32nd Regiment USCT, organized at Camp William Penn, had approximately 319 black soldiers credited to New Jersey. After formation and basic training, the 32nd was ordered to South Carolina where it participated in the siege of Charleston. In late November, 1864, the 32nd participated in the Battle of Honey Hill, South Carolina, and shortly thereafter in the Battle of Devaux’s Neck, South Carolina where the unit sustained losses.

The surrender of General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia on April 9, 1865, did not end the War for the 32nd. Following the rebels south, the 32nd participated in a number of battles and skirmishes including Dingle’s Mills, South Carolina, Statesboro, South Carolina and Boydkin’s and Denken’s Mills, South Carolina. The 32nd was returned to Philadelphia and mustered out in August, 1865.

The 41st Regiment USCT, organized at Camp William Penn, claimed approximately 254 black soldiers for which New Jersey took credit. Although initially serving guard duty at Deep Bottom, Virginia, the 41st got a taste of combat in the trenches before Chaffin’s Farm, Virginia, before becoming part of the Twenty-Fifth Corps. As part of the Twenty-Fifth Corps, the 41st fought in the Battle of Hatcher’s Run and the advance on the Petersburg defenses. After the collapse of Petersburg, the 41st pursued Lee’s Army to Appomattox, Virginia, and was present for the surrender. As part of the Twenty-Fifth Corps the 41st was transported to Texas for service on the Rio Grande border. The unit returned to Philadelphia in December, 1865, for muster- out.

The 43rd Regiment USCT was organized at Camp William Penn in early 1864. As part of the Ninth Corps, the 43rd participated in the Wilderness Campaign and thereafter the siege of Petersburg. As described previously, the 43rd participated in the Battle of the Crater at Petersburg and suffered heavy casualties although never entering the crater itself. Numerous battles followed for the 43rd in the pursuit of Lee’s Army to Appomattox where the men of the 43rd were present for the surrender. As with many other black units, the 43rd became part of the Twenty-Fifth Corps’ guard duty in Texas and was finally returned to Philadelphia in late November, 1865, to be mustered out.

The 45th Regiment USCT was organized at Camp William Penn midway through the year 1864. The State of New Jersey claimed credit for approximately 230 black soldiers. Initially, the companies of the 45th were divided with some being assigned to the Tenth Army Corps. These companies saw combat with the Tenth at Fort Harrison, Darbytown Road, and Fair Oaks, all in Virginia. The 45th was then assigned to the Twenty-Fifth Corps with the other black regiments and all companies of the 45th were reunited. As part of the Twenty-Fifth Corps, the 45th pursued Lee’s Army to Appomattox and thereafter saw service on the border. The 45th was mustered at Brownsville, Texas in November, 1865.

For further reference, please see A Compendium of the War of the Rebellion, Frederick H. Dyer, The Dyer Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa, 1908. A copy is available at the Civil War Library and Museum, Philadelphia, Pa. After reviewing the various regimental histories and determining where a specific unit fought, some consideration should be given to visiting a battlefield. In the January/February, 1991, copy of National Parks magazine, an article entitled “Black History in the Parks”, describes African-American heritage and its increasing presence in the National Park system. The author, William W. Gwaltney, says, ” Many national parks have hidden legacies that deal with African-Americans, such as Fort Scott National Historic Site in Kansas, a recruiting location for early black Civil War soldiers….Just a few miles south and east of Richmond, Virginia, lies an extensive line of earthworks and trenches from the American Civil War. The battles of Richmond are well known to many Civil War enthusiasts. Less recognized, however, are the contributions of thousands of soldiers of African descent at the battles known collectively as the Battle of Chaffin’s Farm. In the repeated assaults at New Market Heights, 14 black soldiers fought in a fashion so conspicuous that they were later awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

An exhibit at the Fort Harrison unit of the Richmond National Battlefield depicts the contributions of these men during the Civil War….At Harper’s Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia, a wide variety of historical themes is represented, including John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, which was to begin a slave revolt in 1859…” Gwaltney also recommends a visit to the home of Frederick Douglass. He states, “Nineteenth century editor, orator, statesman, and diplomat Frederick Douglass is the focus of a National Historic Site in Washington’s Anacostia neighborhood. The site was Douglass’ home from 1877 until his death in 1895…Cedar Hill is a 21-room mansion overlooking the nation’s capital from atop the Anacostia encampment. Ironically, the house was originally owned by a slave-holding land developer, while the area surrounding the house was subdivided as a white-only neighborhood. Douglass purchased the house after coming to Washington and, in doing so, became one of the city’s first “block breakers.” See National Parks, Vol.65, No.1-2. # A COMPENDIUM OF THE WAR OF THE REBELLION COMPILED AND ARRANGED FROM THE OFFICIAL RECORDS OF THE FEDERAL AND THE CONFEDEATE ARMIES REPORTS OF THE ADJUTANT GENERALS OF THE SEVERAL STATES, THE ARMY REGISTERS AND OTHER RELIABLE DOCUMENTS AND SOURCES BY FREDERICK H.
