History of the Unit:

In the Antietam Campaign:
The regiment was on the Maryland Campaign, but first saw action mid-morning on 17 September in what became known as Bloody Lane. Due to extensive straggling and combat losses before the battle, the regiment may have had as few as 60 men present for duty on the field at Sharpsburg.
