62nd Massachusetts Infantry
in the Civil War

Regimental History
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.
