Charles T. Trowbridge when still a boy removed to Brooklyn, N. Y., and lived
there until the outbreak of the Civil War. He enlisted December 4, 1861, and
was appointed sergeant in Company F, 1st New York Engineers, being General
Hunter's orderly, and went with the regiment to the South Carolina coast.
There he took up the work of drilling the slaves who had come into the camp
as refugees, and. a provisional organization was formed, in which he was first
made a captain May 6, 1862, but was not mustered in as such until October 13,
1862. The regiment was called the First South Carolina Volunteer Infantry, he
being captain of Company A. Other companies being recruited, he was promoted
to the rank of major. When colored volunteers became recognized troops and
tlie regiments were numbered under the government service this regiment became
the 33d U. S. Colored Troops and Major Trowbridge was promoted December 9,
1864, to the rank of lieutenant-colonel of the regiment. Col. Thomas Wentworth
Higginson being its colonel. The regiment was attached to the 10th Anny Corjis
and was engaged in the operations about Charleston, S. C, during the siege of
Fort Pulaski. It was in the exi'editions up the Edisto and St. Mary's rivers,
the action at Morris Island and the siege of Fort Sumter. Colonel Trowbridge
had a great faculty in dealing with his colored boys, catching their dialect, and
commanding their confiilence. He was greatly beloved by them, and had such
success with them that he was assigned to duty with the Freedman's Bureau,
serving in that capacity at Charleston, S. C, until mustered out March 15, 1866.
He was honorably discharged March 4, 1866, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel
but had commanded the regiment for nearly two years, on account of Colonel
Higginson being wounded and reti'i'ed from active service.f

After tlie war Colonel Trowbridge returned to his home in Brooklyn, N. Y.
He sen-ed four terms in the Brooklyn Common Council as alderman from the
10th Ward, and afterwards was a member of the Now York Assembly, during the
session of 1879. In April, 1882, he removed to Minneapolis. Minn., where he was
r(\gularly engaged in his business as a contracting brick mason luitil 1901. He
was then appointed by Gov. S. F. Van Sant custo<lian of the old state capitol
building in St. Paul, Minn. He was reappointed by Governor Joluison and
occupied that position until his death.

TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY 383

Colonel Trowbridge was a famous speaker at oampfires, having few equals in
patriotic oratory, and was also in demand during campaigns. He was past
commander of George N. Morgan Post. G. A. E., of Minneapolis, and a member
of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States. As a tribute to
his memory and faithfulness to duty, the governor ordered tlie flag to be hoisted
to half-mast over the old state capitol and the building closed as far as possible
on the day of Colonel Trowbridge's funeral.

In a communication to the Boston Transcript soon after Colonel Trowbridge's
death, Col. Thomas Wentworth Higginson, who was Colonel Trowbridge's
superior officer in the early years of the Civil War and his lifelong friend, pays
this interesting tribute to his memory: "It is sometimes said that the greatest
real heroes of war are the unknown men, and I have just heard of the death of
one of these. There are reported by statistics 178,975 men who served as
colored soldiers in our civil war and the first man who ever enlisted these was
Lieutenant Colonel Charles T. Trowbridge, who has just died at Minneiipolis,
where he has acted of late years as custodian of the statehouse. He was
originally a sergeant in the Civil War in the regiment of Xew York Volunteer
Engineers under Colonel Serrell, and was detailed from it. May 8, 1862, to
organize the so-called 'Hunter regiment' of negro soldiers in South Carolina.
He was a thoroughly trained mechanic, large and strong, with a stentorian voice,
a fine ear for music and the most fearless disposition; gifts and qualities which
lie retained up to the end of his life, and which were all thoroughly appreciated
by negro soldiers and which I fully esteemed when he came under my command.

"His first enlistment of black soldiers came in with difficulty, not so much from
personal timidity on their part as because the white officers and soldiers around
tliem were generally opposed to the experiment and filled the ears of negroes with
the same tales which had been told by their masters, that the Yankees meant to
sell them to Cuba and the like. Nobody could assure them that they and their
families would be legally freed by the government, since no such policy had yet
been adopted. When Trowbridge visited the first plantation for the purpose, in
May, 1862, every black man who saw him approach ran at once into the woods.
One black woman, however, tall and absolutely erect — as the slave women of the
South always were, being accustomed to cari-y evoiything on their heads — came
forward and asked him what he wanted. On his explaining, she turned and
walked into tlie woods by herself and presently came back with all the men
following. Still the enlistment was slow and before long some of General
Hunter's staff became impatient and induced that most impulsive of men to take
the position that the blacks must be made to enlist by force. Accordingly squads
of soldiers were sent to seize all the able-bodied negroes and bring them into
the camp. The immediate consequence was a renewal of the old suspicion,
ending in a widespread belief that they were to be sent to Cuba, as their masters
had predicted. Up to the end of three months, however, the 'Hunter regiment'
continued in camp and was then nominally disbande<l, as having been formed
without authority. One company, however, under command of Sergeant Trow-
bridge — then acting as captain, though not commissioned — had been sent
August 5, 1862, to garrison St. Simon's island. The whites on the island were
gradually driven from it, and no negro flinched.

"Trowbridge and his company, however, remained two months on the island,
his men being poorly clotlied, and witli no new supiily of uniforms. In October,
1862, after General Saxton came from Washington with authority to organize
colored troops, he made Trowbridge senior captain of the revived First South
Carolina. He was thus constantly in command of colored troops, from May 9,
1862 to February 9, 1866, having been such for nearly six months, before my
arrival (November 23, 1862) and nearly a year before Colonel Shaw, whose



384 TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY

commission was dated April 17, 1863. Had not Trowbriilge enlisted the
'Hunter regiment' and brought one company of it through without showing
cowardice or insubordination, it is very doubtful whether Butler or anyone else
would have renewed the enterprise.

"But for some want of early education on his part, Trowbridge would probably
have commanded the regiment. As it was, he was of the greatest value, his
strength and power of labor being inexhaustible and his loyalty to those placed
above him unimpeachable. He had also two qualities especially valuable in
dealing with colored troops, one of these being his stentorian voice both in com-
manding and in singing, and peculiarly important in a camp where all soldiers
were free to sing, and did so constantly. He had another inestimable quality,
namely an immense deal of humor, so that he constantly kept his associate
officers enlivened by anecdote and imitation. After I had left the regiment, two
years later, on account of a wound, tJie way should have been opened to him to
be cormnander, but a political colonel was put in, as was common in those days,
one who was detailed for some civil service in Washington and hardly ever
visited the regiment. Trowbridge and his command were gradually ordered on
some more distant expeditions than they had known before, including some of
great daring of which his written narrative will at some time, I hope, be printed.
Trowbridge was a magnificent specimen of those men of moderate training and
earl.v disadvantages out of whom the Civil War made heroes."

and Brooklyn, N. Y., to which city his parents removed when he was thirteen
years of age. He later engaged in the coal and wood business there. He enlisted
for three years as a soldier in the Civil War, being enrolled August 22, 1862, as
a corporal in Company D, 139th New York Infantry, and being promoted
S(;rgeant-niajor. He was badly wounded by a bursting shell in the battle of Cold
Harbor, June 1, 1864. He was discharged at the expiration of his term of
service. After his discharge from the army he received an appointment in the
New York Custom Hou.se. He never entirel.v recovered from the wound he
received in the army, and it undoubtedly hastened his death.
