Orig. bur. New Hope Church Battlefield.
"28th [May]... we took position on the extreme left of the army and erected breast-works, and while establishing the picket-line a brisk skirmish took place in which 1 man was wounded. On the 29th, 30th, and 31st skirmishing still continued, the enemy's lines in my front being less than thirty paces distant from my own. The loss of the regiment on these three days was 3 killed [Bolin, Hoffman, and Wallam] and 11 wounded. June 1 and 2, both day and night, the regiment was under fire, losing 1 officer wounded."
