9th New Jersey Infantry Monument
Birth: 1905
Death: unknown

This monument, erected in 1905 by the regiment's survivors, commemorates the 9th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, which served from October 1861 to July 1865. Although it was the last regiment from New Jersey to be fully recruited and equipped in 1861, it was the first to produce the state's first combat casualties of the Civil War, as well as its first Officer to die from wounds (Captain Joseph Henry of Company H), when it fought in the Battles on Roanoke Island, North Carolina in February 1862. The unit spent most of its service in North Carolina, participating in it's invasion and occupation. Two of the regiment's commanders died during it's service - Colonel Joseph Allen, who drowned in January 1862, and Colonel Abram Zabriskie, killed in the May 1864 Battle of Drewey's Bluff, Virginia. Two other commanders became generals - Colonel Charles Heckman by commission, Colonel James Stewart Jr. by brevet. The 9th New Jersey lost 10 officers, and 244 enlisted men in the war, with 53 of them interred in New Bern National Cemetery. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
