Brief History

The 65th Regiment, New York Infantry was organized at Willett's Point, N. Y., and left State for Washington, D. C., August 27, 1861. It was assigned to various times to various places and commands. The regiment mustered out July 17, 1865.[1]

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.

Company A - principally recruited in New York City

Company B - principally recruited in Broome County, New York, Maine, Rhode Island the and the Hudson River counties which include Westchester County,Rockland County, Putnam County, Bergen County, Dutchess County, Orange County, Ulster County, Columbia County, Greene County, Rensselaer County, and Albany County

Company C - principally recruited in New York City

Company D - principally recruited in New York City, and (Troy), Rensselaer County
