Regimental History
Thirty-fifth Infantry. Col., Ferdinand Van Derveer; Lieut.-Cols., Charles L. H. Long, Henry V. N. Boynton; Maj., Joseph L. Budd. This regiment was organized at Hamilton, in Aug. and Sept., 1861, to serve for three years. When organized it numbered less than 900, rank and file. On Sept. 26, it broke camp at Hamilton, moved to Covington, Ky., and on the same night took a train on the Kentucky Central railroad, placing parties at all the bridges along the road, making the headquarters of the regiment at Cynthiana. It participated in some of the skirmishes during the siege of Corinth and was among the first to enter the works at the place. In the movement against Bragg, the fight at Perryville and the pursuit to Crab Orchard, it bore an honorable part. All through the campaign, which began at Murfreesboro and ended at Chattanooga, it was in the front of the marching and fighting. On the first day of the fight at Chickamauga, the 35th and the other regiments composing the brigade were stationed on the extreme left of the line, where, after several hours of a fair, stand-up fight, they repulsed and beat back three several attacks of the elite of the Confederate army. On the next day it was again brought early into action and fought all day, firing the last shots that were fired by friend or foe on the battle-field of Chickamauga. In the two days' fight the regiment lost just fifty per cent, of those engaged and scarcely a man was taken by the enemy they were killed or wounded. The regiment was on the front line at Missionary ridge and was among the first to reach the enemy's works on the crest, from which it drove the Confederates and captured 3 pieces of artillery. In Feb., 1864, it was engaged in the first battle at Buzzard Roost, after which it was stationed at Ringgold until the beginning of the Atlanta campaign. It was engaged at Dalton, Resaca, Pine mountain, Kennesaw mountain, Peachtree creek, and several other fights of that bloody contest. It was mustered out in Aug., 1864, at Chattanooga.
