the counties of Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben, rendezvoused at Elmira, and was there mustered
into the U. S. service for three years, Aug. 13, 1862. It was a fine regiment, noted for its efficiency and
discipline, the first regiment from the North organized under the second call, and the first to arrive at
Washington, in acknowledgment of which it received a banner from the state and a personal visit from
the president. It was raised by two patriotic Members' of the legislature, Robert: B. Van Valkenburg,
and Alexander S. Diven, who became colonel and lieutenant-colonel, respectively. It left the state on
Aug. 13, 1862; was stationed in the defenses of Washington for a month; was then assigned to the 1st
division (Williams), 12th corps (Mansfield), and fought its first battle at Antietam, where it was heavily
engaged, losing 63 in killed, wounded and missing. The veteran Gen. Mansfield fell, mortally
wounded at Antietam, and Gen. Henry W. Slocum succeeded to the command of the corps. The
regiment was again heavily engaged at the disastrous battle of Chancellorsville, where the brunt of
the fighting fell on the 3d and 12th corps, and lost in this action 83 killed, wounded and missing,
among the killed being Capt. Nathaniel E. Rutter. The regiment was only slightly en-gaged at
Gettysburg, and after the battle joined with its corps in pursuit of Lee into Virginia, engaging without
loss at Jones' cross-roads and near Williamsport, Md. In September it was ordered with the corps to
Tennessee to reinforce Rosecrans, and was stationed along the railroad from Murfreesboro to
Bridgeport. In April, 1864, the 12th corps was changed to the 20th, but Williams' division retained its
red star. On Dec. 9, 1863, four cos. of the 145th were transferred to the 107th, and in May the
regiment moved on the Atlanta campaign. It fought at Resaca, Cassville, and Dallas, and lost 26
killed and 141 wounded at New Hope Church. From June 9 to July 2 it was engaged about Kennesaw
mountain; fought at Peachtree creek and took part in the siege of Atlanta; moved in November on
Sherman's march to the sea; then took part in the final campaign of the. Carolinas, being engaged at
Rock-ingham, Fayetteville, Averasborp (where it lost 46 killed, wounded and missing), Bentonville, .
Raleigh and Bennett's house. It was mustered out near Washington, D. C., under Col. Crane, June 5,
1865, having lost during its term of service 4 officers and 87 enlisted men, killed and died of wounds;

Cavalry was one of the hardest fought units of the entire Civil War & lost the
greatest number of soldiers killed in action of any cavalry regiment in the
entire army. Bartlett’s biography indicates that he enlisted at East
Stoneham, Oxford County, Maine on February 20, 1864. He participated in
a great number of engagements until the very end of the war & was always
w/ his men & “Bore a gallant part of all the engagements”. A marvelous
opportunity to own a group of Civil War material from a cavalry trooper who
served in a well fought Maine unit.
1) This wonderful identified group begins w/ a cased sixth plate ambrotype
of Private O.W. Bartlett, a full standing view in uniform w/ cavalry saber. The
image is cased in an embossed paperboard case w/ blue velvet interior.
2) Pinned inside the case is Bartlett’s silver identification badge, a jeweler
made pin, being a shield surmounted by 2 cut out crossed sabers. Within
the shield is hand engraved “O.W. / Bartlett / Co. B / 1st Me. Cav.”.
3) 1858 Regulation US canteen w/ cover & partial strap has Bartlett's
stenciled intiials & unit as seen in photos.
4) Regulation US Cavalry saber maker marked "MANSFIELD & LAMB /
FORESTDALE RI". Opposite side is marked "US / JM / 1864". The hilt has a
pair of intials scratched into quillon which are not Bartlett's (DW).

plate. ID pin is also fine w/ silver patina retaining its original T-bar pin &
catch. Canteen is overall very good, sling is tattered & only partial intact,
cover is soiled w/ reductions but painted identification is discernible. Cavalry
