Good progress is being made with the city organizations and I think we shall have a very creditable parade next week.

District has 8 companies and will elect field officers this week, the 13th will have a battalion as also the 7th, and the three will form a brigade.

Very truly yrs.,

The 150th New York Infantry was from Dutchess County and was composed of excellent material. It was organized at Poughkeepsie, where it was mustered into the U.S. service on October 11, 1862, for three years, and when the 145th N.Y. Volunteers was disbanded in December, 1863, a portion of the members was transferred to the 150th.

The regiment left the state on October 11, 1862, and performed garrison and guard duty at Baltimore until July, 1863, when it was assigned to the 2nd brigade, 1st (Williams') division, 12th Corps, with which it marched to the field of Gettysburg, where it fought its first battle, losing 45 killed, wounded and missing.

In September, 1863, the regiment went to Tennessee with the 12th Corps to join the Army of the Cumberland, where Williams' division was stationed along the railroad between Murfreesboro and Bridgeport. In April, 1864, the 12th corps was designated the 20th.

In the same brigade and division, the 150th moved on Sherman's Atlanta campaign about the beginning of May and took an important and honorable part in many of the great battles of that memorable campaign,including Resaca, Cassville, Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek and the siege of Atlanta.

The casualties of the regiment aggregated 100 killed and wounded during the 4 months' fighting from Tunnel Hill to Atlanta. On November 15, 1864, the regiment started on the march to the sea with Sherman, and in December was actively engaged in the siege of Savannah, losing 20 killed, wounded and missing.

The following year it embarked on the campaign through the Carolina’s, being sharply engaged at the battle of Averasboro and losing a few men at Bentonville. On the close of this campaign it marched on to Washington, where it took part in the grand review, and was mustered out there on June 8, 1865, under command of Colonel Smith.
