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

HISTORY OF COMPANY "F"

This Company was organized at City Point, Virginia, and mustered into the service of the United States on the 25th day of May, 1864, and immediately ordered to Wilson's Wharf, Virginia where it, however, remained but a few days, being ordered with the remainder of the regiment to the front of Petersburg. While there this Company saw some hard service.

Although raw recruits, just mustered in, the men behaved like veterans, displaying dauntless courage and much bravery in this their first and consequently most trying engagement. The Company participated in all the battles this regiment has been engaged in, doing throughout good service and behaving in a soldierly manner, thereby eliciting the well-merited approbation of the commanding officers.

In November, 1865, this Company was. ordered to Newbern, North Carolina, and from thence transferred to Fort Hatteras, where it now constitutes the garrison.
