BASED ON THE DESCRIPTIVE BOOK OF THE 144th REGIMENT, U.S.

The 144th New York Volunteer Infantry was a Delaware County Regiment. Of the Regiment's total enrollment of 1409 men, 852 were from Delaware County, 16 were from Chenango County, 15 were from Cattaraugus County and smaller numbers of men were from other counties. In August and September of 1862, the Regiment was organized and drilled at "Camp Delaware," located about a mile below Delhi, the County Seat, on the grounds of the County Poor House Farm.

The Regiment was organized into 10 Companies with enrollments principally as follows: Co. A (Tompkins), Co. B (Walton and Masonville), Co. C (Delhi, Hamden, Stamford, Meredith, Harpersfield, and Kortright), Co. D (Franklin), Co. E. (Andes and Bovina), Co. F (Hancock and many from Penn.), Co. G (Middletown), Co. H (Roxbury, Stamford, and Harpersfield), Co. I (Kortright, Davenport, Sidney, and Meredith) and Co. K (Colchester).

The 144th was sworn into Federal service on September 27, 1862. They marched out from Camp at 7:30 A.M. on October 8 for Hancock, where they took the train for Elmira, this areas collection center. The 144th was mustered out of Federal service at Elmira in July of 1865 and as each Company was paid off, the men left for home.
