One Hundred and Ninety-third New York Infantry. — Col., John B. Van Petten; Lieut.-Col., John C. Gilmore; Maj., Alfred Morton. This regiment was recruited near the end of the war in the counties of Cayuga, Oswego, Onondaga, Oneida, Jefferson, St. Lawrence and Franklin. It was organized at Auburn and the companies were mustered into the U. S. service between March 6 and April 9, 1865, for one, two and three years. Col. Van Petten had previously rendered excellent service as lieutenant-colonel of the 160th N. Y., and was subsequently brevetted brigadier-general for gallant and meritorious conduct. The regiment left the state by detachments during March and April, 1865, and was first assigned to the 3d brigade, 3d division, Army of the Shenandoah, but after July it served in the District of West Virginia, Middle Department. It was finally mustered out and discharged at Harper's Ferry, under Col. Van Petten. Twenty-five men died from disease and other causes during its term of service.
