Regimental History
One Hundred and Tenth New York Infantry.— Cols. DeWitt C. Littlejohn, Clinton H. Sage, Charles Hamilton; Lieut.-Cols., Clinton H. Sage, Warren D. Smith; Majs., Charles Hamilton, Henry C. Devendorf. This was an Oswego county regiment, organized at Oswego, and there mustered into the U. S. service for three years, Aug. 25, 1862. It left the state on the 29th, proceeding to Baltimore, where it was stationed until Nov., 1862, when it was ordered to New Orleans, and early in 1863 was assigned to Emory's division of the 19th corps. Its first experience under fire was at Fort Bisland, and at Franklin it had 12 killed and wounded. It took part in the long siege of Port Hudson and shared in the grand assault of June 14. The total loss of the regiment during the siege was 37 killed, wounded and missing. Its last battle was at Vermillion bayou, La., in Nov. 1863, where it lost 6 killed and wounded. In Feb., 1864, it was ordered to Fort Jefferson, Fla. The regiment was mustered out at Albany, under Col. Hamilton, Aug. 25, 1865. It lost during service 2 officers and 14 men killed and mortally wounded; 3 officers and 192 men died of disease and other causes — total deaths, 211. The high percentage of loss by disease was due to the long service of the regiment in the extreme South.
