The 138th was assigned to the 6th Corps after the reorganization of the Army of the Potomac and were engaged at Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Monocacy, Winchester, Fisher’s Hill, Cedar Creek, Petersburg and Sailor’s Creek.

During its service the regiment lost 7 officers and 160 enlisted men killed and died of wounds and disease plus many others wounded and recovered.  [ad]
