Brief History

This regiment,, also known as the Albany County Regiment, was organized at Albany, Albany County, in August, 1862, as a regiment of infantry.  It was mustered in under Colonel Lewis O. Morris  on August 18, 1862. It then moved to Washington, D.C. the next day.[1] On December 19, 1862 it was converted into a regiment of artillery, and designated the 7th Regiment of Artillery.[2] This regiment was mustered out and honorably discharged from service under Major John F. Mount on August 1, 1865.[3]

The New York State Military Museum website has a unit history project page for the 113th Infantry Regiment and for the 7th Regiment of Artillery.

The Civil War in the East website gives a timeline for the involvement of 113th New York Infantry Regiment in the war and the 7th Regiment of Artillery.

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
See the Regiment Roster of the (Seventh Artillery) , for listing of individuals, their company and their involvement.
