PREFACE.



Almost from the time of its muster out and disbandment, there has been a
purpose or hope among the men who constituted the Twentieth Michigan, that at
some time a record should be made and published of the part taken by that
regiment in the war for the Union, during the years from 1862 to 1865. But the
actual work of preparation and writing has been postponed from year to year
until more than forty years have gone by since the regiment was summoned
to arms. Many years ago, Lieutenant Charles W. Maynard commenced the
work of collecting copies of letters and diaries written by members of the
regiment during the war, more with the view of producing a narrative for his
own family and friends than for a history to be published.

At the annual reunion of the regiment in 1899, Colonel B. M. Cutcheon was
appointed historian, and associated with Lieutenant Maynard, who had previously
been designated assistant historian, and a new effort was inaugurated to put the
material accumulated into form for publication. At the reunion of 1900, at
Ypsilanti, the association of the regiment endorsed the enterprise, voted to sup-
port it financially, and selected a "committee en publication" to act with the his-
torians in passing upon the matter to be published. It has not been considered
best to make a voluminous work nor to go to any extent into personal matters,
but to make a brief and compact story of the organization, campaigns, battles
and actions participated in by the command. To this short story are appended
the official documents from the records of the war department and the State
Adjutant General's office relating to the service, as well as the records from
"Michigan in the War," printed by the authority of the state in 1879. These
records were made by the Adjutant General, under authority of an act of
the legislature, approved May 3, 1879, and may be regarded as official.

The bringing together of these official documents in the appendix, thus con-
stituting a real official history of the regiment, must be of very great value and
interest to the survivors of the command, their families, friends and descendants.
These official records made within a few days or weeks of the events narrated,
are more likely to be accurate than the memory of men now already old, from
thirty or forty years after the events recalled.

In these official records will be found every report ever made by an officer
commanding the regiment, and, it is believed, every report of a brigade com-
mander in which this regiment is mentioned.

To these are added several division reports. The history of the Twentieth
is so interwoven with that of the rest of the old brigade, that this story becomes
in a large measure the history of the brigade and division. Into this story
have also been incorporated sketches of our commanders ; Burnside, Willcox



PREFACE



Poe, Humphrey and Hartranft, with brief mention of Parke, Potter, Leasure,
Withington, W. Huntington Smith and others.

''Some of the comrades will doubtless be disappointed at not finding in this
history more of a personal nature, especially records of special instances of
heroic conduct, notable escapes from death, or other thrilling personal episodes.

Such matter would have been most interesting, but both the author and the
committee of publication were of the opinion that it must be omitted; first, be-
cause it would swell the size of the volume to undue proportions and largely
increase the cost, and second, because it would be possible to insert only a few
of the many equally deserving instances, thus producing the effect of partiality
and unjust discrimination.

It is hoped by those in charge of the publication that all will cheerfully ac-
quiesce in this view."

This compilation and story of a gallant body of men who tried to do their
whole duty in a patriotic and manly fashion, — a sincere work of love, — is now
submitted to the survivors and the families of those who have passed over to
the eternal camping grounds in the hope that it may meet their approval.

CHAPTER I.

THE RAISING OF THE REGIMENT.
July 15, 1862. August 19, 1862.

The Twentieth Michigan Infantry had its origin in the call of President
Lincoln for "three hundred thousand more," issued July 1, 1862, pursuant to
the memorial of the Governors of the loyal states. Michigan's quota, under
that call, was 11,686. After conferences between the authorities of the war
department and the Governor and military officers of the state, the conclusion
was reached that one regiment of infantry should be recruited from each of the
six congressional districts, and one from Wayne county; and the remainder of
the quota should be made up of cavalry and artillery from the state at large,
and recruits for the existing regiments. The Seventeenth Regiment was already
organized and well advanced toward completion, so that the seven new infantry
regiments were numbered from 18 to 24, inclusive. Thus it came to pass that
the Twentieth Regiment was assigned to the Third congressional district, con-
sisting of Washtenaw, Jackson, Calhoun, Eaton and Ingham counties. The
ten companies were authorized and located as follows :

Company A— Lansing, Ingham county.
Company B — Ypsilanti, Washtenaw county.
Company C— Battle Creek, Calhoun county.
Company D— Ann Arbor, Washtenaw county.
Company E— Parma, Jackson county.
Company F— Grass Lake, Jackson county.
Company G — Eaton Rapids, Eaton county.
Company H— Ann Arbor, Washtenaw county.
Company I— Marshall, Calhoun county.
Company K— Chelsea, Washtenaw county.

It will therefore be seen that four of the ten companies were from Washtenaw
county, two from Jackson county, two from Calhoun county, one from Eaton
and one from Ingham county. In fact, county lines were not strictly observed,
and a considerable number of Company F were enlisted from Washtenaw county,
and a number of the men of Company D were recruited from Ingham county.
Recruiting officers were authorized to recruit anywhere within the Third con-
gressional district.

One of the axioms of mathematics is that "the whole is equal to the sum
of all its parts," and before we take up the history of the Twentieth Michigan



12 TWENTIETH MICHIGAN INFANTRY

Infantry, — and we may as well say here, parenthetically, that as Michigan had
no other Twentieth Regiment, we shall speak of it simply as the "Twentieth
Michigan" — it is proper and desirable to give some brief account of the recruit-
ing and organizing of the several constituent companies.

COMPANY A.

On July 23, 1862, William Huntington Smith, a citizen of Adrian in the
first congressional district, but temporarily residing at Lansing as Deputy Auditor
General, was commissioned by Governor Blair as second lieutenant and re-
cruiting officer, and authorized to recruit a company in Ingham county. He
associated with him, William A. Dewey, who was engaged in recruiting at Leslie,
as second lieutenant and Darius C. Calkins as first lieutenant. Lieutenant Cal-
kins had seen some service, having be?n commissioned in August, 1861, as
second lieutenant of Company B, Second U. S. Sharpshooters. On the muster
of the regiment, August 19, 1862, Captain Smith was commissioned and mus-
tered as Major and Lieutenant Calkins was promoted and mustered as Captain
of Company A, while Dewey was advanced to first lieutenant. The recruiting
of the company went on very slowly until August 9, when a special effort was
made in Lansing, and so many enlisted — mostly out of the state departments —
that the company was filled and the following non-commissioned officers were
appointed, namely :

Sergeants.

First Sergeant — William A. Barnard.
Second Sergeant — William M. Green.
Third Sergeant — Benjamin H. Berry.
Fourth Sergeant — James M. Howland.
Fifth Sergeant — Schuyler F. Seager.

Corporals.

First Corporal — Henry B. Carpenter.
Second Corporal — Albert E. Cowles.
Third Corporal — E. Golden Filer.
Fourth Corporal — Henry E. Hinkley.
Fifth Corporal — Leonard C. Rice.
Sixth Corporal — Thos. H. B. Morehouse.
Seventh Corporal — Harmon W. Paddleford.

On the promotion of Captain Smith to major, Sergeant B. H. Berry was pro-
moted to second lieutenant, and each of the sergeants below him and the
corporals were raised one file. As so organized, the company went into camp at
Jackson.

COMPANY B.

On the morning of Tuesday, the 15th of July, 1862, Governor Austin Blair
issued his proclamation calling for Michigan's quota of the 300,000 called out



RECRUITING THE REGIMENT 13

by the proclamation of President Lincoln, July 1. On the same morning,
Byron M. Cutcheon was duly commissioned and mustered as second lieutenant
and recruiting officer to raise a company for the Twentieth Michigan, his station
being at Ypsilanti, where he had been engaged as principal of the high school of
the Union Seminary. The same day he entered on his duties as recruiting officer,
opening an office in Hewitt's block, Ypsilanti. During the previous year he
had organized a company among the boys of the Union Seminary, which he
had drilled in the foot movements, but without arms.

Among those who had been under his instruction were Charles T. Allen, of
Sharon, and Samuel H. Row, also of Sharon. Allen had enlisted and served in
the First Michigan (3 months) regiment, as corporal of Company D ("Man-
chester Union Guard"). These two undertook to assist in recruiting the com-
pany (which became "Company B") and immediately set about recruiting at and
about Manchester and Sharon and adjoining towns, with excellent success.

Among those who had been connected with the "Ypsilanti Light Guard" was
Alfred A. Van Cleve, one of the best drilled men in the guard. To him was
offered the position of second lieutenant ; to Charles T. Allen that of first lieu-
tenant, and to Samuel H. Row that of orderly sergeant. Van Cleve was not to
do any active recruiting, but to take charge of the recruits as fast as they
assembled, and put them at once under drill and prepare them to go to the
regimental rendezvous. On Saturday, the 19th of July, a mass meeting was
held at Hewitt's hall, and a bonus of $10.00 to each man was offered by
citizens of Ypsilanti to all who would enlist from that town in the company.
This promoted enlistments, so that by the 26th, orders were issued to proceed
to camp at Jackson. Lieutenant Allen and Orderly Row proceeded directly from
Manchester to Jackson with their enlisted men, while Captain Cutcheon and
Lieutenant Va nCleve with the recruits assembled at Ypsilanti moved by the
Michigan Central to the same place.*

One other company had been to camp and had returned home again, but
Company B was the first company to report at the rendezvous to remain per-
manently. The company took to camp something more than a full quota of
men, and several of the men enlisted in Company B were assigned for muster to
other companies, which were deficient. The non-commissioned (or warrant)
officers were as follows :



14 TWENTIETH MICHIGAN INFANTRY

Sergeants.

Orderly Sergeant — Samuel H. Row, (aged 22) Sharon.
Second Sergeant — Prescott M. Skinner, Ypsilanti.
Third Sergeant — Reuben E. Manning, Salem.
Fourth Sergeant — John Thorns, Ypsilanti.
Fifth Sergeant — John E. Irwin, Sharon.

Corporals.

Second Corporal — J. K. Morse, Sharon.
Third Corporal — J. D. Norris, Manchester.
Fourth Corporal — Oscar McLouth, Augusta.
Fifth Corporal — William G. Shipman, Ypsilanti.
Sixth Corporal — Lafayette A. Baker, Ypsilanti.
Seventh Corporal — Henry M. Mellincamp, Sharon.
Eighth Corporal — Theodore L. Thompson, Ypsilanti.

company c.

Among those commissioned by Governor Blair in the latter part of July, 1862,
as second lieutenant and recruiting officer to raise a company for the Twentieth
Michigan, was Geo. C. Barnes of Battle Creek.

Lieutenant Barnes had been a sergeant in "Merrill's Horse" (2d Mo. Cav.),
and he associated with him in recruiting Company C, Jos. H. Weeks, as first
lieutenant, and Charles J. Brown, as second lieutenant.

Together these three recruited the company and on the day before it was to
go into camp an election was held which resulted in the selection of Barnes as
captain, Weeks as first lieutenant and Brown as second lieutenant. The com-
missions of these officers all date from July 29, 1862, although the company was
not regularly organized until later. The officers and non-commissioned officers
of Company C were as follows :

Captain — George C. Barnes, Battle Creek.
First Lieutenant — Jos. C. Weeks, Battle Creek.
Second Lieutenant — Charles J. Brown, Battle Creek.

Sergeants.

First Sergeant — George B. Hicks.
Second Sergeant — Adrian C. White.
Third Sergeant — David Bidwell.
Fourth Sergeant — Albert G. Barney.
Fifth Sergeant — Walter H. Chadwick.

Third Corporal— Ira W. Hulbert.
Fourth Corporal — Andrew Knight.
Fifth Corporal — George M. Cowles.
Sixth Corporal — Aaron L. Stiles. <
Seventh Corporal — Chas. B. Williams.
Eighth Corporal —

COMPANY D.

About July 25, 1862, Claudius B. Grant, of Ann Arbor, then principal of the
high school of that city, a graduate of the University of Michigan, received a
commission from Governor Blair to recruit a company for the Twentieth Michi-
gan. His connection with the high school and the university made him familiar
with many young men of a class very suitable for good officers and non-commis-
sioned officers.

About the 29th of July he opened a recruiting office in Ann Arbor, in the
one story wooden building next west of Cook's Hotel, and fronting the court
house square. Captain Grant associated with him in raising his company Ros-
well P. Carpenter, a graduate of the University of Michigan, in the class of
1862, as first lieutenant, and David E. Ainsworth, an under-graduate of the
university, as second lieutenant. Oliver Blood, of Dexter, had been engaged in
recruiting in that village, and added quite a number of men to the company
from that locality. Charles W. Maynard of Ann Arbor, commenced recruiting
at Onondaga, Ingham county, and added nearly a dozen men from that vicinity.
The men of this company were mostly enlisted from Ann Arbor, Dexter and
Onondaga.

About August 15, the company assembled and proceeded to the rendezvous at
Jackson. It was organized as follows :

Captain — Claudius B. Grant.
First Lieutenant — Roswell P. Carpenter.
Second Lieutenant — David E. Ainsworth.
All of Ann Arbor.

Sergeants.

Orderly Sergeant — Oliver Blood, Dexter.
Second Sergeant — R. D. Buchanan, Ann Arbor.
Third Sergeant — George B. Felch, Ann Arbor.
Fourth Sergeant — N. A. Parker, Ann Arbor.
Fifth Sergeant — Charles W. Maynard, Ann Arbor.

Corporals.

First Corporal — John Donovan.
Second Corporal — William N. Steele.



16 TWENTIETH MICHIGAN INFANTRY

Third Corporal — Joseph G. Price.
Fourth Corporal — Eban H. Crofut.
Fifth Corporal — Anselmo R. Morris.
Sixth Corporal — John W. Johnston.
Seventh Corporal — Norman D. Gates.
Eighth Corporal — Abram Romig.

Of the non-commissioned officers Sergeants Blood and Parker were pro-
moted to first lieutenant and captain of Company D, and Sergeant Maynard to
first lieutenant of Company C.

COMPANY E.

This company was raised at Parma and vicinity, mainly through the efforts of
Francis Porter, who with a team, carrying a fifer and a drummer and a speaker,
drove through the country, holding "war meetings" at the hamlets and cross-
roads.

The necessary number of men were recruited within the allotted time.

The following were the commissioned officers :

Captain — John Anderson, Parma.

First Lieutenant — Francis Porter, Parma.

Second Lieutenant — Albert P. Merrill.

The latter was duly commissioned July 29, 1862, but never mustered.

In January, 1863, James B. Goold, who had mustered with the company as
