Brief History

The 28th Regiment, Connecticut Infantry was organized at New Haven, Connecticut.  This regiment was mustered in on the 15th day of November, 1862.  It was mustered out of service at New Haven, August 28, 1863.

Companies in this Regiment

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.  This regiment was composed of men from all parts of Connecticut, but the majority of men in each unit resided in the following counties:

Company A was largely formed by men from Fairfield County.

Company B was largely formed by men from Fairfield County.

Company C was largely formed by men from Fairfield County.

Company D

Company E was largely formed by men from Litchfield County.
