The regiment left the state for New York on Nov. 13 and embarked from Brooklyn two weeks later for New Orleans where it encamped on the Shell road at Carrollton. From May 27 to July 9, 1863, the 15th took part in the siege of Port Hudson, La., engaging in active combat and in many laborious siege duties.
