Commanding Officer at Antietam:
Capt. Henry W. Daboll
Organized in part from the "Colt's Revolving Rifles" company of early 1861.
The Regiment was heavily engaged at Cedar Mountain, 9 August 1862:
"Capt. Daboll, writing to his brother after the battle, says that he finds himself in command of the regiment, being the senior officer present for duty. The regiment went into the fight, with 380 men, and came out with 200. Companies H and F were not in the battle being on detached duty. He says 'Our colors was shot down nine times, and we have lost them with the nine brave men who defended them' . Col Chapman, LCol Stone, and Maj Smith were all wounded and captured, as were many other officers".
(Hartford Courant, August 16, 1862).
