One Hundred and Forty-fifth New York Infantry. — Col., Edward Livingston Price; Lieut.-Cols., Ole P. H. Balling, Roswell L. Van Wagenen; Majs., R. L. Van Wagenen, George W. Reid, James H. Brennan. The 145th, the "Stanton Legion," recruited principally at New York city, Hempstead, Oyster Bay and Staten island, was organized at Staten island and there mustered into the U. S. service, Sept. 11, 1862, for a three years' term. It left the state on the 27th and was immediately assigned to the 2nd brigade, 2nd (Greene's) division, 12th corps, which was stationed in the vicinity of Harper's Ferry until December, when it moved into Virginia and made its winter quarters at Stafford Court House. The regiment was heavily engaged at the battle of Chancellorsville, then in Williams' (1st) division, 12th corps, losing 95 killed, wounded and missing. Lieut. W. H. Poole, the only commissioned officer killed in action, fell in this battle. Its loss at Gettysburg was 10 killed and wounded. It then followed with the corps in pursuit of Lee until the Rappahannock was reached, and was present at the battles of Williamsport, Md., and Robertson's ford, Va. The 145th was disbanded on Dec. 9, 1863, when the men were distributed to the 107th, 123d, and 150th regiments. During its service as a separate regiment it lost by death, 1 officer and 14 enlisted men killed and mortally wounded; 35 enlisted men died of disease and other causes, a total of 50.
