After its reorganization in March, 1864, for the three years' service, the regi-
ment was assigned to the First Brigade, First Division of the Fifth Corps. It
reached the army during the progress of the battle of Cold Harbor. Its next position
was on the north bank of the Chickahominy, at the extreme left of the army. On
June 16, 1864, it took up a position before Petersburg, and on the 18th was en-
gaged in the assault upon the works on the enemy's right, the regiment being led by
Major Merrick. Its loss in killed and wounded was more than one-tenth of its num-
ber, but it held its place in the most gallant manner, winning, by its good conduct,
the special commendation of General Chamberlain, who, himself, received a danger-
ous wound. Major Merrick was in command of the regiment in the desperate assault
on Fort Hell, at Petersburg, Virginia, June 18, 1864, and received a gunshot wound
in the right knee, rendering amputation of the leg necessary. At the funeral ob-
sequies of President Lincoln, in Philadelphia, this regiment was assigned to the head
of the procession, on its way from the Baltimore depot to Independence Hall, and was
left as a guard of honor while the remains lay in state. With the First City Troop,
it was detailed to escort the remains from Independence Hall to the New York
depot, as they were borne away. It was mustered out of service at Harrisburg, Au-
gust 3, 1865.

Company A, as reorganized, for the three years' service, contained less than
twenty of those who were members of the company in the six months' service. The
