Company M, 121st Infantry, “Home Guard”

One of the first military companies organized in Pulaski County after the War of 1812 was “The Home Guards.” Peace and plenty characterized our growing county for a long period of years after the War of 1812-14, but as a safeguard to our homes this company was organized, as we had no military protection. When the war clouds of the sixties hovered over our Southland and men were being called into service, the “Home Guards” were merged into a large company, the intrepid “Pulaski Volunteers,” the first company to leave Pulaski County for the battlefront. Their valiant history during the War Between the States is another story. Several years after the close of the war, the company was reorganized, and for a number of years was the pride of Pulaski County, as their only military organization. Later it disbanded. On June 20, 1916, it was recognized as Company M, 1st Infantry; May 10, 1921, recognized as Company M, 122nd Infantry; April 27, 1922, as Company M, 200th Infantry; March 28, 1924, as Company M, 121st Infantry. The first officers of the reorganization as Company M, 122nd Infantry, were: Captain William Mobley Watson First Lieutenant Oscar Amos Second Lieutenant Robert L. Fleming. Upon the death of Captain Watson, Lieutenant O. C. Amos was made Captain, and is present company commander. Captain Amos is a veteran of the border, having served...

Record of the Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War, 1861-1865

This new digital version of Stryker’s classic work, presented by the New Jersey State Library, is completely searchable utilizing full Boolean logic. See the search tips and database description pages for more information. The Record is arranged by regiments in numerical order. Each regiment’s chapter gives a brief summary of its actions followed by a roster of its members which provides rank, date commissioned or enrolled, date mustered in, length of enlistment, date mustered out, and provides other information including promotions, transfers, wounds, deaths and desertions. The New Jersey regiments are listed first followed by “Miscellaneous Organizations,” which are regiments from other states–mostly from Pennsylvania. It also includes the Veteran Reserve Corps, the United States Colored Troops, and the U.S. Army and Navy regulars. An interesting mystery about this publication is its title as listed on the title page: Record of Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War, 1861-1865 (emphasis added) because 1876 seems very early to be referring to this as the Civil War (though some in the north always referred to the war as the Civil War). Indeed, the actual page headers in the paper version (the only thing omitted in this digital version) say Officers and Men of New Jersey in the War of the Rebellion (emphasis added). The NJ State Archives and the NJ Dept of Military and Veterans Affairs have not...

12th N.H. Regiment

Point Lookout, Md., August 11th, 1863 ____________ Mr. Editor: I suppose that long before this you have heard of the whereabouts of the 12th, and know something of our situation; but perhaps a few lines, relative to our proceedings of late, and of our present good fortune may prove acceptable. My last letter to the Gazette was written while we were at Green Springs, Md. Since we left that place, up to the time of our coming to this place, we have shared, in common with this army the hardships and privations incident to a hard march. I would like to give you a detailed account of our adventures, but neither time nor space will permit. We marched through many places of interest, which shall long live upon the pages of history. We passed over the bloody fields of South Mountain Antietam, and Sharpsburg. The evidences of the great battles fought at these places are fearfully apparent. The long lines of soldier’s graves speak plainer than words of the many brave and noble men who have sacrificed their lives upon their country’s altar. There are other evidences of the dreadful scenes which have there been enacted; but none so great as the humble gray of the soldier. We left the Army of the Potomac on the 27th of July at Warrenton, taking the cars at that place for Washington....

Return of the Sixteenth N.H. Regiment

The sixteenth Regiment N.H. Volunteers, in command of Col. James Pike, arrived in Concord on the 14th inst. They left this State on the 23rd of last November, having been mustered in for nine months service. They have participated in only a few engagements, but have been included in the Department of the Gulf and have suffered greatly front he diseases of a hot and unhealthy region. The corps, on reaching the city, had 340 men able to carry arms, together with enfeebled soldiers who were immediately transferred to the hospital at City Hall. Besides these 49 invalids were left at Vicksburg and 36 at Cairo. These figures show how disease has more than decimated the ranks of a regiment that numbered nine hundred effective men on departing for the seat of war. The troops took an honorable part in the actions at Butte a la Bose (Fort Burton), Springfield, and Donaldsonville, all of which places are in Louisiana. The troops left Port Hudson on the 1st instant, and were in constant motion until they reached New Hampshire. They came up the Mississippi river to Cairo, and from thence by rail. The journey home though fatiguing, was interspersed with many pleasing occurrences. At a score or more of places on the route the people assembled by thousands, inviting the soldiers to collations, and cheering their hearts with kind and...
