65th Regiment
New York Volunteer Infantry
Civil War Newspaper Clippings

The 65th regiment, N. Y. S. V., (1st U. S. Chasseurs) returned to the city at 8 o'clock on Thursday evening. This regiment left in 1861, having been organized by the Hon. John Cochrane, who went out as Colonel, and Major Alex. Shaler, of the 7th Regiment, went out as Lieut.-Colonel, and was subsequently promoted to the Colonelcy, vice Cochrane, appointed Brigadier-General. The strength of the regiment on leaving New York was 1,040, and its ranks were subsequently increased by 350 recruits. Only 10 officers and 92 enlisted men have returned, under the command of Capt. J. Milne. Two hundred and fifty re-enlisted men have been left in the field. This regiment was in all the battles in which the Army of the Potomac fought. A large number of the Seventh Regiment joined the 65th when they went to the war, and it was officered mainly by that corps. Yesterday two companies of the Seventh escorted the regiment through the city, and they were entertained by the entire regiment at the armory last evening.
