1864 Report

Troops in the Field

Eleventh Infantry Regiment

The ELEVENTH REGIMENT, at the date of my last Report, were performing garrison duty at Washington, D. C. They remained in the same position, until May 12th, when they left Washington, and, on the 15th, joined the "Vermont Brigade" in the Army of the Potomac. Since that date their history has been identified with that of the Brigade, and their movements and losses have been particular mentioned, in connection with the history of the Brigade on previous pages.

Under the call of October 17, 1863, for 300,000 men, each of the twelve companies of this regiment was filled to the maximum of Heavy Artillery, or nearly so, -- constituting a body of about 1,800 men, and making it one of the finest regiments in the service.

The alterations in the regiment, during the year, have been as follows: -- Transferred to Invalid Corps, 42; Discharged, 79; Deserted, 41; Died, 1862; Total, 325.

The following Table shows the strength of the regiment at the several dates specified.
