After the Antietam Campaign

On 17 March 1863 the depleted 105th was consolidated with the 94th NY Infantry, and ceased to exist. As a result the field officers - Colonel J.W. Shedd, Lt. Colonel R. Whiteside, and Major D.A. Sharpe - and others of the 105th became supernumeraries and were honorably discharged2.
