History of the Unit:
This regiment, Col. James M. Fuller, was organized March 15, 1862, by the consolidation of the regiment being recruited at Rochester, under Col. Howard Carroll, with the one being recruited at LeRoy under Colonel Fuller, the nine companies of the latter forming seven, and the six of the former, three, G, H and I, of the new organization. The men were mustered in the service of the United States for three years between November, 1861, and March, 1862.
The companies were recruited principally: A at Wyoming; B at Lockport; C at Holley; D at LeRoy; E at Batavia; F at Brockport; G, H and I—Irish Brigade; Western Irish Regiment —at Rochester; and K at Yorkshire, Farmersville and LeRoy.
The regiment left the State April 4, 1862; served at Washington, D. C, from April, 1862; in 2d Brigade, 2d Division, Department of Rappahannock, from May, 1862; in 1st Brigade, 2d Division, 3d Corps, Army of Virginia, from June 26, 1862; in same brigade and division, 1st Corps, Army of the Potomac, from September 12, 1862; and, under Col. John W. Shedd, it was consolidated into five companies and transferred to the 94th Infantry, March 10, 1863, as Companies F, G, H, I and K of the latter.
During its service the regiment lost by death, killed in action, 1 officer, 33 enlisted men; of wounds received in action, 1 officer, 15 enlisted men; of disease and other causes, 45 enlisted men; total, 2 officers, 93 enlisted men; aggregate, 95; of whom 1 enlisted man died in the hands of the enemy.1
In the Antietam Campaign:
Colonel Carrol was mortally wounded in action of 17 September, and followed in command by the senior officer present, Capt. John C. Whiteside (to 26 Oct 62)2.
The remainder of the War:
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.
