had the largest total euroUment of any Michigan organization in the war.
The average age of hoth officers and men was higlier than in any other
while the loss whether killed in action, died of wounds or in Confederate
prisons was the smallest of any Michigan regiment of like length of

more effective work for the triumph of the Union cause than this body
of mature men made up largely of experienced mechanics, artisans and
railroad men. In the building and laying of pontoon boats and bridges,
in the construction of highways and highway bridges, in the building of
railroad bridges and trestles, and in the repair of railroads and the run-
ning of trains it greatly facilitated the movement of troops and supplies.
At the same time the officers and men alike evidenced on different oc-
casions that they had in them the stuff of which soldiers and heroes are
made.

The raising of a regiment of engineers and mechanics was especially
authorized by the war department. The work of recruiting was begun
in August, 1861, and the muster into the United States service dated from
the following October. The regiment rendezvoused at Marshall. It left
its camp near that city on the 17th of December and journeyed direct to
Louisville, Kentucky, where it became a part of the Army of the Ohio
commanded by General Buell. The regiment received successively, spe-
cial commendation from General Buell, General Rosencrans, General
Thomas and General Sherman for the character and importance of ser-
vices rendered.

The affair at Lavergne, Tennessee, a hamlet situated midway between
Nashville and ilurfreesboro, where it had been placed by Rosecrans
to protect his rear and guard his trains while he was lighting the battle
of Stone's River brought it into general notice and gave it a reputa-
tion as a fighting regiment.

The regiment went everywhere with the Army of the Cumberland
from its organization to Chattanooga ; from Chattanooga to .Atlanta ;
from Atlanta to the sea and from the sea to Goldsboro, North Carolina,
and the surrender of Johnston. It participated in the grand review at
^Vashington in ilay, 1865. Following the review it was transported to
Nashville, Tennessee, where it remained until September 22, when it
was mustered out of service. It arrived at Jackson. JMichigan, October
1, 1865, where it was paid off and disbanded.

Among the officers who went out from Calhoun county with this regi-
ment were Lieiitenant Colonel Kinsman A. Hunton of Marshall ; Assist-
ant Surgeon AVilloughby O'Donoughue of Albion; First Lieutenant
Frederick W. Huxford and Second Lieutenant Horace C. Gilson, both of
Albion, and Captain Emory 0. Crittenden of Marshall. Ferdinand
Boughton who went out from Albion as a corporal in Company K, in
1861, came back a captain in 1865. C.vrus ]M. Curtis, of ^Marshall, who
was a sergeant in Company K at the organization, returned with his
regiment wearing upon his shoulders the strajis of ii captain.

By act of Congress, 1862. the Jlichigan Engineers and Mechanics
wei-e authorized to have twelve companies of 150 men each, the same as in
the regular armv. Recruiting for these brought up:

Total enrollment, 2,f)20.

Total killed in action, 2.

Total died of wounds, 4.

Total died in Confederate prisons, 2.

Total died of disease, 280.

Total discharged for disability, 279.
