The 94th, the "Bell Rifles," recruited in Jefferson county, was
mustered into the U. S. service at Sacket's Harbor, March 10,
1862, and left the state for Washington on the 18th. It served
in the defenses of Washington under Gen. Wadsworth, was
assigned to the 1st brigade, 2nd division, Department of the
Rappahannock in May, and to the 3d corps, Army of Virginia,
June 26, with which it participated in Gen. Pope's Virginia
campaign, losing 147 in killed, wounded and missing.
On Sept. 12, with the same brigade and division, the regiment
was attached to the 1st corps, was active at South mountain
and Antietam, and in December at Fredericksburg. The
winter was passed in camp near Falmouth and in March,
1863, the regiment was consolidated into a battalion of five
companies to which were added five companies of the 105th N.
The regiment served for a month as provost guard and in June
1863, returned to the 1st corps with its old brigade and
division and suffered the heaviest loss of its service at
Gettysburg-245 killed, wounded or missing. It shared in the
Mine Run fiasco and in December was ordered to Annapolis,
where it became a part of the 8th corps.
During the winter a large number of its members reenlisted
and the regiment continued in service as a veteran
organization. In the Wilderness campaign it served with the
5th corps, being engaged at Cold Harbor, Totopotomy and
White Oak swamp. It moved with the Army of the Potomac to
Petersburg and was closely engaged at the Weldon railroad,
losing 178 killed, wounded or missing.
On Aug. 10, 1864, the regiment was joined by the veterans and
recruits of the 87th N. Y. infantry and remained on duty
before Petersburg until the end of the siege after which it was
active at Five Forks, and was present at Lee's surrender. The
84th was mustered out at Washington, July 18, 1865, having
lost 116 by death from wounds and 138 from other causes, of
whom 37 died in imprisonment. Maj. Fish was killed in action
at Five Forks.
