Fifth Regiment Massachusetts
Volunteer Cavalry
Three Years
The 5th Regt. Mass. Vol. Cav. was the only
cavalry regiment from Massachusetts
composed exclusively of colored men.
It was organized at Camp Meigs, Readville,
during the autumn of 1863 and the winter
following.
The regiment was mustered out of the
Federal service at Clarksville, Texas,
Oct. 31, 1865, and immediately started
for Massachusetts, making most of the
trip by steamer. On arriving in Boston
Harbor the regiment was landed at Galloup's
Island where it remained until the latter part
of November when it was paid and discharged.
