Regimental History
Seventh Infantry WISCONSIN
Enlistment (3-YEARS)

Seventh Infantry. -- Cols., Joseph Van Dor, William W.
Robinson Lieut.- Cols., Charles A. Hamilton, John B. Callis,
Mark Finnicum Hollon Richardson; Majs., George Bill, George S.
Hoyt.

This regiment, organized in Aug., 1861, was mustered into the
U. S. service by companies and left the state for Washington
on Sept. 21. It reached Washington on Sept. 26 and joined
King's brigade at Camp Lyon on Oct. 2.

It participated in all the movements of its brigade during the
following winter and spring and had its first skirmish with
the enemy in July, 1862. An expedition was sent out by Gen.
King to destroy the Virginia Central railroad, of which
expedition the regiment formed a part, and during the movement
a skirmish occurred with the enemy's cavalry but the troops
suffered more from the excessive heat of the weather.

The regiment took part in the celebrated retreat of Gen. Pope,
taking position at Beverly Ford after crossing the
Rappahannock, and for 3 days skirmished with the enemy, losing
2 men wounded.

But it had its first introduction to real warfare at
Gainesville, where the fearful list of casualties proved the
desperate nature of the contest. All the field officers of
the regiment were wounded, and it lost 46 men killed or died
of wounds. On the following day it was present at the battle
field of Bull Run, where it was temporarily consolidated into
six companies and took part in the contest. It acted as part
of the rear-guard on the retreat and during these two days
lost 5 killed and 135 wounded.

The regiment was engaged throughout the battle of South
Mountain and held its ground until late in the night, when it
was relieved. It lost during the day 20 killed and 105
wounded.

At Antietam the regiment was hotly engaged and lost 17 killed
and 25 wounded. It took part in the battle of Fredericksburg,
but owing to the position it held it did not become very
actively engaged and it lost but 1 man killed.

At the opening of the Chancellorsville campaign in the spring
of 1863 the regiment was with the brigade when it crossed the
river at Fitzhugh's crossing in pontoon boats and drove the
enemy out at the point of the bayonet. In this affair the
regiment lost 4 killed and 5 wounded. Early in June it took
part in a cavalry reconnaissance towards Culpeper Court house
and as infantry support in the battle of Brandy Station did
very effective service.

It bore its share in the battle of Gettysburg with
characteristic gallantry and suffered severely, its loss being
32 killed and 80 wounded. It was in the affair at Buckland
mills in October where it had the misfortune to lose 30 men
captured.

In December 211 of the 7th reenlisted as veterans. This was
sufficient to constitute a veteran regiment and in January the
non-veterans were temporarily attached to other organizations,
while the regiment returned to Wisconsin on veteran furlough.

During the first day's fighting in the Wilderness, the
regiment suffered severely but in the attack on the enemy's
first line it captured the colors of the 48th VA. The battle
was resumed at daylight the following morning, when the
regiment participated in the grand charge upon the
Confederates in front and was the only regiment that succeeded
in holding for a short time the enemy's first line of
breastworks.

At Spottsylvania the enemy established a body of sharpshooters
within 50 yards of the Federal breastworks, but they were
driven out by a company of the 7th Wis. On the following day
the brigade again advanced to charge the enemy's works in
front, the regiment being on the left. The troops to the left
of the brigade were repulsed, and the 7th was obliged to
return to its breastworks, which it did in good order. It was
the first regiment to relieve Hancock's corps at the 'bloody
angle' and took position in the enemy's first line of
intrenchments, which had been captured by Hancock earlier in
the day. The list of killed and those who died from wounds in
this campaign from May 5 to June 10 show that the regiment
lost 92, while 184 were wounded.

On June 18 the regiment advanced with its brigade across an
open field, about 2 miles from Petersburg, against the heavy
works of the enemy, through a galling and terrific fire. In
this movement the regiment was left without any connecting
line on its left, but the ground was held for an hour and a
half, during which the regiment suffered terribly from the
infantry and artillery fire of the enemy.

The Federal batteries were firing over the heads of the men in
order to prevent the Confederates from advancing from their
works and having to aim low many of the shells struck in close
proximity to the regiment. Having a few shovels, earthworks
on the left flank were commenced, the soldiers aiding the
shovelers with their bayonets and tin plates. Before they
could finish their works, however, the Confederates advanced
to within 75 yards, and after fighting them as long as there
was a chance of holding the position, the regiment was
compelled to fall back through a more deadly fire than that
through which it had advanced, returning to near the position
from which it had moved in the morning. The casualties in the
regiment were 21 killed and 37 wounded.

On July 30 the regiment took part in the operations connected
with the explosion of the mine and had 1 man killed and 1
wounded. In the desperate fight on the Weldon Railroad the
7th captured 26 prisoners without sustaining any loss.

On Aug. 20 it rejoined the brigade on the west side of the
railroad and assisted in the gallant repulse of the enemy on
the 21st, the regiment capturing the battleflag and all the
field' officers of the 16th Miss.

The regiment fought with its accustomed gallantry at the
battle of Dabney's Mill in Feb. 1865, with a loss of 4 killed
and 19 wounded. It fought at Gravelly run in March, and took
a prominent part in the famous battle of Five Forks, which
immediately preceded the fall of Richmond.

It then joined in the pursuit of the enemy and had the proud
satisfaction of assisting in the capture of the army of Gen.
Lee at Appomattox Court House. In this short campaign from
March 29 to April 9 the casualties in the 7th regiment were 18
killed and 52 wounded.

After the surrender of the Confederate forces the regiment
moved to Black and White's Station, where it remained until
ordered to Washington, where it participated in the grand
review. On June 17 it was ordered to Louisville, where it was
mustered out and started for Wisconsin on July 2.
