|Seventh New York Veteran Infantry. Col. George W. Von Schack was authorized
on May 6, 1863, to reorganize the 7th regiment and it was again mustered into the U. S.
service early in the spring of 1864. For a time before the regimental organization was
complete several companies were attached to the 52nd N. Y., a notable fighting regiment.
It was assigned to the 3d brigade, 1st division, 2nd corps and joined the Army of the
Potomac before the Wilderness campaign in which it participated through all the weeks of
constant fighting leading up to Petersburg. During the siege of Petersburg it saw much
active service, being engaged in the assaults at Petersburg in June, at the Weldon
railroad, Deep Bottom, Strawberry plains, Reams' station, Hatcher's run, Fort Stedman,
White Oak road, the final assault and the closing battles of the pursuit. The regiment was
mustered out at Harts island, N. Y., Aug. 4, 1865, having lost 50 members by death from
wounds, and 53 by death from other causes.
