Remarks: The records indicated 16th VA INF, but it is in error because, 1) there was no 16th VA INF Union, and 2) the dates coincide exactly with the 16th WV INF

Webmaster's Note: The 11th Vermont Infantry was also known as the 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery; the names were used interchangably for most of its career
