|Sixty-second Infantry. This regiment, like the 61st, was intended
for one year's service, and was being organized at Readville, Mass., when the information
that Gen. Lee had surrendered stopped further enlistments. Only four companies had been
mustered. Ansel D. Wass,. late colonel of the 60th infantry, would have commanded the
regiment had it been sent forward. He was commissioned, but never mustered. The four
companies organized remained in camp until May 5, when they were mustered out to the
number of 8 officers and 381 enlisted men. Two men had died and 8 deserted.
