Brief History

The 114th Regiment was organized at Norwich, Chenango, New York, and mustered in September 3, 1862. [1]The regiment was mustered out under Col. Per Lee, June 8, 1865 at Bladensburg, Maryland. The veterans and recruits were transferred to the 90th New York Infantry. The soldiers were discharged at Elmira, Chemung, New York, June 17, 1865.[2]

The Civil War in the East website gives a timeline for the involvement of 114th 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, for listing of individuals, their company and their involvement.

Company A - principally recruited from Oxford,Chenango County

Company B - principally recruited from Norwich, Chenango County

Company C - principally recruited from Norwich, Chenango County
