Klappentext

Excerpt from Catalogue of Connecticut Volunteer Organizations: Infantry, Cavalry and Artillery, in the Service of the United States, 1861-1865, With Additional Enlistments, Casualties, &C., &C., And Brief Summaries, Showing the Operations and Service of the Several Regiments and Batteries

The First Connecticut Regiment Infantry (3 months) was recruited largely from the volunteer militia, and numbered seven hundred and eighty (780) men. It left New Haven for Washington, May 9, 1861. The men were armed with Sharps' ri es and United States Springfield ri ed muskets. Colonel Daniel Tyler, a graduate of West Point, and serving with distinction for a number of years in the regular army, was appointed to the command. Under his auspices the regiment was brought into a high state of efficiency and discipline. On the 10th day of May he was promoted to be a brigadier-general, and at the battle of Bull Run was in command of a division. Colonel George S. Burnham, his successor, had been connected for a number of years with the State volunteer organization, and he was in command at the battle of Bull Run, and acquitted himself with honor.

After remaining in camp of instruction for some time, on the morning of the 2lst of July, the regiment was ordered to advance on the Warrenton road towards Bull Run, where the enemy had entrenched himself. After marching and countermarching, at times under severe fire, until four o'clock, P. M., the regiment had orders to retreat, which they did in good order, though hotly pursued, their loss being only eight (8) wounded and nine (9) missing. Resting awhile at Centerville, they were ordered back to their old camp at Falls Church, reaching that place on the morning of the 22d, when, according to orders, their tents were struck, and they remained during the day' exposed to a drenching rain, occasioning much' suffering on account of the very fatiguing duties of the previous day, and the want of needed rest.
