First ]\Iichigak Sh.vrp Shooters

This reginieut had aa unusually large representation of both ofBcers
and men from Calhoun county. John Piper of Battle Creek went out
as major. Levant C. Rhines of Battle Creek went out as captain of
Company A, and on the death of Major Piper, succeeded him in that
ofSce. ^lajor Rhines lost his life in front of Petersburg, June 16. 186i.
George C. Knight, first lieutenant Company A, was also from Battle
Creek. He was commissioned captain June 12, 1864, and on the 17t!i
of the same month was killed in action before Petersburg, Virginia. Guy
Newbre. of Emmet, went out as second lieutenant. Company A. George
N. Davis, of Albion, entered the service in this regiment as captain of
Company D. Martin Wager, of Battle Creek, first lieutenant, killed in
action before Petersburg, Virginia, June 25, 1864, enlisted as first ser-
geant. Friend D. Soules entered the service from Emmet and rose from
corporal to first lieutenant. Cyrenius B. Knight, of Newton, passed from
a private in the ranks to second and first lieutenant, successively, when.
like Lieutenant Soules, he was discharged on account of disabling
wounds received in action.

The county was very generaUy represented by the rank and file in
this regiment. Battle Creek had over fifty; the township of Newton
about twenty-five; Ennnet townshiji over twenty; Burlington some
fifteen: Albion City and township about the same number, while Pen-
field, Tekonsha, Bedford, Marshall, Athens, Marengo, Sheridan and
Ceresco in the order named were all represented.

On February 14, 1864, the First Michigan Sharp Shooters under
command of Colonel Charles V, DeLand, of -fackson, wa.s assioiK'd
to Wilcox's division, of Burnside's Corps, Army of the Potomac. It was
with Grant through the Wilderness campaign and the siege of Peters-
burg. Its casualties attest better than anything else the character of
the service required and given, while the commendation of brigade and
division commanders show that its heroic efforts were neither unnoticed
nor Ttnappreciated.

The First Michigan Sharp Shooters was the first regiment to enter
the long fought for city of Petersburg, on the morning of April 2, 1865,
and ran up the flag of the United States over the court house in that city.
It remained in and near the city luitil after the surrender at Appomattox,
when it returned to Washington, participated in the grand review,
soon after which it was nmstered out, paid off and di.sbanded in Jackson,
Michigan, August 7, 1865.

Total enrollment, 1,206.

Killed in action, 69.

Died of wounds. 42.

Died while prisoners of war, 41.

Died of disease, 62.

Discharged for disability (wounds and disease), 98,
