Description

Tenth Regiment of Infantry-Mass. Vols.

In response to a proclamation, issued by President Lincoln May 3rd 1861, calling for a force of volunteers to serve for three years, unless sooner discharged, and in conformity with a General Order, issued by command of Governor Andrew May 22nd following, the 10th regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers was recruited and organized.
The regiment rendezvoused at Springfield Mass. on Hampden Park, June 14th 1861, and was sworn into the service of the United States, June 21, 1861, by Captain Marshall, U.S.A.
