HISTORY OF THE
Thirty-Seventh Regt. U.S.C. Infantry

HISTORY OF COMPANY "D"

Company D was also organized at Norfolk, Va., during the early part of 1864. Took an active and conspicuous part in all the engagements the regiment was ordered into; both officers and men of this organization deserve much credit for the fidelity and patriotism displayed at the battle of Fort Harrison, the Fort Fisher Expedition, and all the other engagements immediately following, until the surrender of Wilmington. This Company was detailed to do provost duty in this city, in which capacity they gave the greatest satisfaction to the citizens,. and speedily restored good order, when the Company was sent to form part of the garrison at Fort Caswell, at mouth of Cape Fear River, North Carolina.
