arriving there on the 1st of April, and joining the
Army of the Potomac, which then lay encamped on
a line extending from the Fortress to Newport News,
preparatory to the march up the Peninsula. The.
movement com monced on the morning of the 4th, and
in the evening of the following day Keyes' corps o
fronted the enemy's lines at and in the vicinity of
Warwick Court-House. There it remained until the
morning of Sunday, the 4th of May, when it was
found that the enemy had during the previous night
evacuated his works at Yorktown, and along the line
of Warwick River, and the Union army at once moved
on in pursuit.

On the morning of Monday, May 5th, the Con-
federate forces were found strongly intrenched at
Williamsburg. They were attacked soon after day-
light, and the battle raged through the entire day,
resulting in victory to the Union arms, the enemy
retreating during tlie night, leaving his wounded on
the field. In this, its first battle, the Eighty-fifth was
but slightly engaged, and suflered a loss of only two
wounded.



WAR OF THE REBELLION.



203



Moving up from Williamsburg towards Riclimond
in pursuit of the retreating enemy, the regiment
■with its brigade crossed the Chickahominy at Bot-
tom's Bridge on the 20th of May, and marched
thence to a position in the army line at Fair Oaks,
within about five miles of Richmond. There at a
little past noon on Saturday, the 31st of May, Casey's
division was suddenly attacked by an overwhelming
force of the enemy, and though fighting most stub-
bornly was forced back with great loss and in some
disorder. The battle continued through the after-
noon of the 31st, and the attack was renewed by the
enemy on Sunday morning, but resulted in less suc-
cess to him than that of the previous day. In the
battle of Saturday the Eighty-fifth occupied rifle-pits
and held them bravely, but was driven from them by
assaults from superior numbers. " To be brief," said
Gen. Casey, in his report, " the rifle-pits were retained
1 they were almost enveloped by the enemy, the
troops with some e.xceptions fighting with spirit and
gallantry."

In the series of engagements known as the Seven
Days' battles, commencing at Mechanicsville, on
the Cliickahominy, on Thursday, the 26th of June,
and ending at Harrison's Landing, on the James, on
Wednesday, the 2d of July, the Eighty-fifth was not
actively engaged and suffered but little. Its total
loss during the Peninsula campaign was eighty-seven
killed and wounded, the principal part of this loss
being sustained in the battle of Fair Oaks.

When the Army of the Potomac evacuated the
Peninsula in August, 18G2, the corps of Gen. Keyes
was left stationed at Fortress Monroe. From that
place the Eighty-fifth w'ith other troops was moved to
Suffolk, Ya., and remained thereuntil the commence-
ment of winter. At this time its brigade (to which
the Eighty-fifth and Ninety-second Regiments had
been added) was under "command of Gen. Wessells.
On the -Sth of December this brigade left Suffolk
under orders to move to Newbern, N. C, to reinforce
Gen. Foster's Eighteenth Corps. It was embarked
on transports on the Chowan River, and reached its
destination on the 9th. It remained in North Caro-
lina about seven weeks, during which time it was
several times engaged, — at West Creek, Kinston,
White Hall, and Goldsboro',— the Eighty-fifth sus-
taining slight loss.

In the last part of January, 1863, the regiment with
its brigade and others of Foster's command was
transported from Newbern to Hilton Head, S. C,
where it arrived on the 1st of February. The brigade
was then under command of Col. Howell. Early in
; April it was moved to Cole's Island, and thence across
'Folly Kiver to Folly Island. There the men witnessed
till- linnibardmentof Fort Sumter by Admiral Dnpont,
and alter its unsuccessful close the brigade of Col.
Hi)well was left to garrison the works on the island, ;
the other troops as well as the fleet, being withdrawn. !
It rriiiained on duty on Folly and Morris Islands



through the remainder of the spring and the entire
summer and fall. Daring this time the Eighty-fifth
Regiment suffered very severely, both from the mis-
siles of the enemy and the excessive heat of the
weather. From the 20th of August, when it was
placed in the advanced trenches in front of the rebel
Fort Wagner (which Gen. Gillmore was attempting to
take by regular approaches), until the 2d of Sep-
tember its losses were fifty-six killed and wounded
by the enemy's shells, and the losses by sickness were
still greater. It went on the outer works (August 20th )
with an aggregate strength of four hundred and fifty-
one, and when relieved (September 2d) it could mus-
ter but two hundred and seventy fit for duty. Imme-
diately after this. Fort Wagner was subjected to a
bombardment of forty hours' duration, which com-
pelled its evacuation by the enemy and the abandon-
ment of the entire island, which was then at once oc-
cupied by the Union troops. There the Eighty-fifth
remained until about the 5th of December, when it
was transported to Hilton Head, and went into camp
near Port Royal, S. C. During its stay of more than
four months at that place and its vicinity the health
of the men was greatly improved, and the effective
strength of the regiment largely increased. It was
not called on to take part in any engagement, but sus-
tained a loss of two wounded and one made prisoner
in a skirmish at White Marsh, near Savannah, in
February, 1864.

In April following, three divisions of Gen. Gillmore's
troops were ordered to the James River, Va., to re-
inforce the army under Gen. Butler. The divisions
designated were Ames', Turner's, and Terry's, in which
last named was Howell's lirigade, containing the
Eighty-fifth Pennsylvania. On its arrival in Vir-
ginia its strength was increased by the return of the
veterans of the regiment, who had been home on fur-
lough, also by the accession of a considerable number
of conscripts. It was removed to Bermuda Hundred,
and there went into position in the army line. Its
first engagement with the Army of the James was on
the 20tli of May, when in an assault on the enemy's
rifle-|(its in its front, it sustained a loss of twenty-three
killed and wounded.

On the 14th of June the Army of the Potomac,
under Gen. Grant, began crossing the James from the
Peninsula. Two days later the Confederate Army of
Northern Virginia, under Lee, crossed the same river
above Drury's Bluff", and the ojiposing forces at once
commenced the long and deadly struggle in front of
Petersburg. On the 17th the enemy assaulted a part
of the works held by the Eighty-fifth, and the regi-
ment was compelled to retire with a loss of seventeen
killed and wounded. On the 9th of July it lost one
killed and three wounded by the accidental explosion
of a shell. Again, on the 14th and 15th of August,
at Deep Bottom and Strawberry Plains, the regiment
was engaged, charging with Terry's division, capturing
the enemy's works, and sustaining a loss of twenty-

one killed and wounded. On the following day
(August 16th ) it lost nine killed and fifty-four wounded
in a charge upon another part of the hostile works,
the regiment capturing three stands of colors and a
numljcr of prisoners. The troops recrossed to the
right bank of the James on the 20th, and four days
later the Eighty-fifth, with its corps (the Tenth), was
moved to the south side of the Appomattox, where it
occupied a line of works. On the loth of September
it was ordered to occupy Fort Morton, a work mount-
ing fourteen heavy guns.

A short time previous to this last-named movement
Col. Howell li:i'l been ;is^i;^iie(l to the command of a
division of c..|,,i-, ,1 tr.inps. On the 12th of Septem-
ber, while returning at night from the corps head-
quarters, he was thrown from his horse and so severely
injured that lie died soon after. He was a brave and
faithful ntheer, aii<l his loss was keenly felt, not only
by his own re-iiueiit, but by (be ..tllriTs and men of
the entire briga.b' wliieb be m, long eoninianded.

On the 27th of September the regiment was relieved
from duty at Fort Morton and returned to its division,
Avith which it took part in the movement of the Tenth
and Eighteenth Corps across the .Tames which re-
sulted in the capture of Fort Harri.-on and a long
line of other works of the enemy. In this series of
operations it was engaged with the enemy on the 1st,
7th, and 12th of October, and twice advanced to
within three miles of Kichmond, but sustained no

Tlie term of service of the Eighty-fifth was now
drawing to its close. On the 14th of October it was
relieM'l Irnni dutv in tiont of retersbiirii'. its veterans
an.l ivriuit- une transferred to the (Mie Hundred
and KigbtyM-igblb reniisyl vania, and the remainder,
whose time was soon to expire, were n.oved to Ports-
mouth, Va., and there encamped, .\bont the middle
of Xovember the remnant of the regiment was ordered
home, and on the 22d of that month it was mustered
out of service at Pittsburgh.
