WEST VIRGINIA
(3-YEARS)

Curran, Henry H. Withers.

The 10th regiment was recruited in the latter part of 1861, the
first companies being assigned to duty under Gen. Rosecrans,
then in command of the Frontier Department. Its organization
was not completed until May, 1862, when it was attached to the
command of Gen. Milroy, and took part in the operations of that
army during the remainder of the year.

In May, 1863, it was ordered back to West Virginia and attached
to the brigade commanded by Gen. Averell. The first action of
the regiment as a body was at Beverly, in July, 1863, where it
was attacked by the enemy under Col. W. L. Jackson, and
notwithstanding the regiment was greatly outnumbered it held
Jackson at bay for two days, when reinforcements arrived and
the Confederates were routed. It fought at Cloyd's mountain,
where it was highly complimented by Gen. Averell for its
gallantry, and afterward was with that officer in several raids
and expeditions.

In the campaign against Gen. Early in the Shenandoah Valley in
1864, it was in action at Snicker's ferry, Winchester,
Berryville, the Opequan, Fisher's hill and Cedar creek. After
Sheridan's victories in the Valley it joined the Army of the
James and continued in the operations about Petersburg and
Richmond until the close of the war. It was mustered out Aug.
9, 1865.
