When the 107th New York Volunteer Infantry arrived in Washington, D.C. in August 1862, President Lincoln personally honored them with a regimental banner. It was kept by Secretary of State William Seward and never saw a battlefield--the 107th saw many. This unit history presents a day-to-day chronicle of the regiment's actions during the Civil War, from Antietam to Chancellorsville to Gettysburg to their deadliest fight at New Hope Church. At the Siege of Atlanta, where citizens dug furnished caves to escape the shelling, the 107th took fire from determined rebel snipers and were among the first troops to enter the city.
