Sullivan County, New York
in the Civil War

The following is taken from Third Annual Report of the Bureau of Military Statistics of the State of New York, Albany: [The Bureau], (C. Wendell), 1866.

The first military organization in Sullivan county, was a company of 93 men, recruited by John Waller, jr., and mustered into the State service on the 10th day of May, 1861, by Capt. J. Wood. On the 16th, orders were received for the company to proceed to Albany, and they left Monticello the same day at 11 a. m., stopping at Middletown, 25 miles distant, over night. Transportation to which place was paid by Mr. Waller, as well as subsistence to Albany. On the 17th they reached Albany, at about 4 p. m., and reported to the Adjutant General, and were assigned quarters on the first floor of a building on Broadway. About the 20th of May, they were assigned to the Twenty-eighth regiment, New YorkVolunteers, lettered H ; and on the 22d, mustered into the United service for two years ; June 1st, encamped at Camp Morgan, about three miles south of Albany.

Prior to recruiting of this company, quite a number of vlounteers had joined other organisations, from Sullivan, though no organization had been attempted in this county ; nor did our citizens become earnestly engaged in enlisting men, until Colonel Van Wyck began to raise the Fifty-sixth regiment, or Tenth Legion, us it was popularly called, in the full of 1861.
