1st Maine Infantry Battalion
in the Civil War

Regimental History
First Infantry Battalion. — This organization was composed of the 21st, 24th, 25th and 26th companies of unassigned infantry and was mustered into the U. S. service at Augusta, in Feb. and March, 1865, to serve for one year. It was designed for the 15th Me. infantry, but was organized as the 1st battalion on May 25, 1865, as there was no vacancy in the 15th. The companies were lettered A, B, C and D, and were assigned to the 2nd brigade, Dwight's division, then in the Shenandoah valley, and subsequently moved to Washington, where it remained until June 1. From there it moved to Savannah, Ga., and on July 6 was ordered to South Carolina, where it did duty at various places until April 5, 1866, when it was mustered out at Charleston, S. C.
