Narrative of Activities

The next month after its arrival at the front, the regiment took part in the disastrous battle of Ball's Bluff. In the spring of 1862 the regiment was assigned to the Third Brigade, Second Division, Second Corps, and was with General George B. McClellan in the Peninsular Campaign. It fought gallantly at Yorktown, Fair Oak, Peach Orchard, Savage Station, White Oak Swamp, Glendale, Malvern Hill, and Manassas. The regiment was complimented on numerous occasions by commanding generals during this campaign for its steadiness under fire and for its gallantry in action and its stubborn resistance when confronting the enemy. Though its losses were severe the ardor of the men never failed to respond to the orders of their officers under the most trying circumstances.

Colonel Norman J. Hall was commissioned to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Colonel Grosvenor, and assumed command in July. He led the regiment in the battle of Antietam, where its ranks cut nearly in half, including a large number of line officers.

The Seventh gained an enviable reputation at Fredericksburg, in Dec., 1862, where it volunteered to cross the Rappahannock in pontoon boats under the fire of the enemy and drive the Confederate sharpshooters from their cover behind walls, rifle pits,and stone buildings, who had by their well directed fire stopped the engineers from laying a pontoon bridge so that soldiers under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Baxter could cross the river. They received heavy fire, but pushed on until the opposite bank was reached, where they charged the enemy and drove him from cover, capturing a number of prisoners.

The Seventh entered the Pennsylvania Campaign in 1863 with the Army of the Potomac, and by long and forced marches reached Gettysburg on the 2nd of July, and was assigned a position on Cemetery Hill, which it retained until the close of the battle, July 3rd. The regiment took 14 officers and 151 men into action and lost in the two days' fighting, 21 killed and 44 wounded, an eloquent eulogy upon the heroism of this regiment.

The Seventh joined in pursuit of the confederate army upon its retreat into Virginia, and Aug. 20th sailed from Alexandria, Va., for New York, to remain during the progress of the draft which was causing riots. The following October it was again with the Army of the Potomac and fought a spirited battle at Bristo Station.

The regiment was on active duty, marching, fighting and building earth works until December, when 162 of tile members re-enlisted and returned to Monroe January 2, 1864, where it was furloughed for 30 days. It reassembled again at the end of 30 days and returned to its old camp at Barry's Hill.

In May, the regiment started on the long campaign which finally ended in the siege of Petersburg and the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. It was part of the famous Second Corps, and crossed the Rapidan at Ely's Ford on the 4th, and was soon engaged with the enemy in the fearful struggle of the Wilderness. Every day of this march was written in the blood of the Seventh. It fought at Spottsylvania, where it assaulted the enemy's works with great loss. It took part in the series of engagements following Spottsylvania, and was in the disastrous charge at Cold Harbor.

The regiment crossed the James river and arrived before Petersburg on the 15th, where it assisted in building fortifications and performed its share of picket duty until the end of July. While in front of Petersburg it took part in numerous actions in the vicinity, engaging the enemy at Deep Bottom, Reams Station, Hatcher's Run and Boynton Plank Road.

When General Grant commenced his famous flanking movement around Petersburg the Seventh took a conspicuous part, moving to High Bridge and Farmville, and was on the march April 9, 1865, when General Lee surrendered. After the surrender the Seventh marched to Burkville, and then to Richmond, and finally to Washington, where it took part in the grand review.

June 6th the regiment was ordered to report to General John A. Logan at Louisville, Ky., and arrived in that city on the 22nd. July 5th it was mustered out and returned to Jackson, Michigan, where it was paid off and disbanded July 7, 1865.

The 7th Michigan Infantry Regiment was formed at Monroe, Michigan, during the summer of 1861. One of the first companies to reach the headquarters of the regiment was a unit known as the “Jonesville Light Guard,” commanded by Capt. Henry Baxter. It had been recruited at Jonesville, Michigan, but its members hailed from northern Hillsdale County, including a few from outside the county limits. On reaching Monroe the “Light Guard” was mustered in as Company C of the 7th Infantry, laying its former name aside. The number of Hillsdale County men in Company C throughout the American Civil War was sixty-nine; in Companies A, B, F, and G, one each; in Company K, two; and in the noncommissioned staff two; total, seventy-seven.

Detailed Account of the 7th Michigan Infantry Regiment

Source: Downloaded June 2011 from History of Hillsdale County, Michigan, with illustrations and biographical sketches of some of its prominent men and pioneers, by Crisfield Johnson, published by Everts & Abbott, Philadelphia, pp 55-57, from http://books.google.com/

The 7th Michigan Infantry [Regiment] was formed at Monroe, during the summer of 1861. One of the first companies to reach the headquarters of the regiment was the “Jonesville Light Guard,” commanded by Capt. Henry Baxter. It had been recruited at Jonesville, but its members hailed from all the north part of Hillsdale County, including a few from outside the county limits. On reaching Monroe the “Light Guard” was mustered in as Company C of the 7th Infantry, and its fanciful name was thenceforth laid aside. The number of Hillsdale County men in Company C throughout the war was sixty-nine; in Companies A, B, F, and G, one each; in Company K, two; and in the noncommissioned staff two; total, seventy-seven.

The regiment left Monroe for Virginia on the 15th of December, 1861. Arriving there, it was stationed on the upper Potomac. It was one of the regiments detailed to go to Ball's Bluff on the 21st of October, under Gen. Baker, and shared the losses inflicted by the sudden and overwhelming attack of the enemy on that disastrous day.

In the spring of 1862, the 7th went with the Army of the Potomac to the Peninsula, where it was engaged in the siege of Yorktown, and afterwards in the affair at West Point on the 7th of May. It also took an active part in the battle of Fair Oaks on the 31st of May and 1st of June. When the Confederate force was massed to attack the Union right, the 7th was with the columns which were forced back through the disastrous “Seven Days’ Fight’;” taking part in the actions at Peach-Orchard Creek on the 29th of June, at Savage Station on the same day, at White Oak Swamp on the 30th of June, at Glendale on the same day, and finally on the 1st of July, at Malvern Hill, when victory at length perched on the Union standard, and the rebel hordes were repulsed with terrific loss.

The 7th went northward with the Army of the Potomac, and was present at the second battle of Bull Run. It then crossed the Potomac with McClellan, took part in the battle of South Mountain, and on the 17th of September, 1862, stood face to face with the enemy on the field of Antietam. Here it was engaged in one of the hottest struggles of the war, and bravely maintained itself throughout, though the victory which it achieved was purchased at the cost of a list of killed and wounded embracing more than half the men present in the action.

After Antietam, the 7th continued with the Army of the Potomac in its marches through Northern Virginia until the 11th of December, 1862, when that army stood on the north side of the Rappahannock, gazing across at the enemy's works at Fredericksburg.

During the night of the 10th the Union engineers had laid a pontoon-bridge partly across the stream, but at daylight the rebel sharpshooters soon drove them away. Volunteers were called for to cross the river and seize a foothold on the opposite shore. Lieut.-Col. Baxter, then in command, called on the 7th for that duty, and as one man they responded to the call. Foremost of all the army, they sprang into the boats and set out for the opposite shore. The rebel bullets fell thick and fast among them, and many were slain or wounded,—among the latter being their gallant commander,—but still they held on their way, and at length made good their landing. Close behind them came a Massachusetts regiment. The two formed on the bank, dashed up the heights above, drove the enemy from his intrenchments, and captured several hundred prisoners at the point of the bayonet. The pontoons were then laid across the river, and a portion of the army crossed in safety. The subsequent disasters which befell the forces of Gen. Burnside in that action cannot dim the glory of the brilliant exploit of Col. Henry Baxter and the 7th Michigan Infantry.

The regiment acted as provost-guard [What is that?] at Falmouth until the 3d of May, 1863, when it again crossed the Rappahannock to take part in the battle of Chancellorsville. It was not closely engaged, but the enemy's artillery fire wounded ten of the men.

During the Gettysburg campaign the 7th underwent even more than the usual hardship of that torrid and dusty period. On the 27th of June it marched thirty-seven miles, on the 28th six miles, and on the 29th thirty-two miles, making seventy-five miles in three days; a remarkable exploit when it is considered that every soldier carried a rifle, bayonet, cartridge-box, belts, blanket, haversack, and canteen, and that marching in column in a cloud of dust is twice as fatiguing as walking by a single individual.

On the 2d of July the 7th arrived at Gettysburg, and was immediately placed in the front of battle on Cemetery Hill. In this exposed position it remained until the close of the action on the 3d of July, meeting and repelling some of the fiercest attacks of the enemy. So much had the regiment been depleted by its previous conflicts that only fourteen officers-and a hundred and fifty-one men went into this fight. Of this small number twenty-one were killed (including the commander, Lieut.-Col. Steele) and forty-four wounded; the total of casualties being nearly half of the whole number engaged.

After taking part in the pursuit of the enemy, the 7th went to New York a short time during the enforcement of the draft, and then returned to the Army of the Potomac. On the 7th of December, after considerable marching and skirmishing in Northern Virginia, it went into winter quarters at Barry’s Hill. Here, notwithstanding all its hardships and losses, a hundred and fifty-three men re-enlisted as veterans, and the regiment was sent home to Monroe on the 1st of January to recruit. After a thirty days’ furlough it returned to Barry’s Hill, where it remained until the grand advance of the army on the 3d of May.

It was lightly engaged in the Wilderness on the 5th of May, but on the succeeding day it had a severe conflict with the enemy, having eight men killed, thirty-eight wounded, and eight missing. On the 10th it was at Spottsylvania Court-House, where it was subjected to a severe fire from the rebel sharpshooters, and also made an assault on the enemy’s works. The total of casualties during the day was five killed and twelve wounded. The next day it was again slightly engaged, and on the 12th it took part in Hancock’s charge on the left of the enemy’s line, eleven of the men being wounded. The next day there was another fight, when the 7th had three men killed and ten wounded.

Continuing, with the Army of the Potomac, the flank movements to the left which constantly brought it nearer to Richmond, the 7th passed the North Anna and Pamunkey Rivers, being frequently engaged as skirmishers, and on the 30th and 31st of May, and 1st of June, it lost six killed and had nine wounded. At Cold Harbor it gallantly charged the enemy's works, but the long lines of intrenchments, behind which the rebel marksmen leveled their deadly rifles in almost perfect security, proved impervious to the thinned ranks of the 7th and their comrades, and the regiment fell back with a loss of sixteen killed and wounded.

The 7th reached the lines in front of Petersburg on the 15th of June, and at once entered on the tedious picket and trench duty, fighting nearly every day, and having twenty-three killed and wounded during the first ten days. In the battles of Strawberry Plains and Flussier's Mills (August 14 and 17) it had three men killed and eleven wounded. It was also engaged in the battle of Reams' Station on the 25th of August.

On the 26th of October, the 7th was one of the regiments which advanced on the enemy’s right, and the next day it took part in no less than three battles; those of Hatcher's Run, Burgess Tavern, and Boydton Plank-Road. In this movement the 7th, alone, captured four hundred and eighty men and twenty officers of the 26th North Carolina rebel infantry.

From the beginning of the campaign to the 1st of November, the feeble regiment, in these constant battles and skirmishes, had had forty-one men killed and one hundred and thirty-one wounded, besides thirty-six captured by the enemy, and thirty reported as “missing in action,” some of whom were killed and some captured. And still the Herculean task of destroying the rebel army was uncompleted.

The regiment remained in front of Petersburg during the winter, sharing all the dangers and hardships of the army, but not suffering as severely in killed and wounded as during the previous six months. On the 2d of April, the 7th, with detachments of the 1st Minnesota and 19th Massachusetts, were ordered to attack the enemy's works at Cat-Tail Creek. They advanced steadily to their task, and, notwithstanding the fire from the rebels, safely ensconced behind their intrenchments, the 7th dashed boldly forward, reaching the enemy's lines the first of the Union forces, and driving out the gray-back defenders at the point of the bayonet. The assaulting brigade quickly captured two forts and three cannon; then forming in flank, it swept along the rebel works, capturing five other forts and about five hundred prisoners.

The regiment was less fortunate on the 7th of April, when, after capturing many prisoners, it was cut off from the main army by a large force of rebel infantry and cavalry, and, in attempting to fight its way through, had three officers and thirty-four men taken prisoners. In the afternoon it was relieved and rejoined its brigade. Two days later, Lee’s army surrendered, and the most serious trials of the 7th Michigan were ended.

It was sent to Louisville, Ky., and Jeffersonville, Ind., in June, very much to the disgust [!] of the men, but was mustered out at Jeffersonville, on the 5th of July, 1865, sent immediately to Jackson, Mich., and paid off and disbanded on the 7th of that month.
