The 40th New York Infantry was organized in Yonkers on July 1, 1861 under the auspices of the Union Defense Committee of New York city, and under special authority from the War Department. Originally it was known as the United States Constitution Guard, recruited in New York city by Col. John S. Cocks, of which the Second Zouaves, an incomplete organization, formed part; at the solicitation of the Mozart Hall Committee, it accepted the designation Mozart Regiment.

The 40th served all its time with the Army of the Potomac being apart of that army’s 3rd Corps until its dissolution in March of 1864 when it became part of the 2nd Corps until mustered out. The regiment saw action in all the major campaigns of the Army of the Potomac from the Peninsula to Sailor’s Creek and Appomattox losing 32 officers and 398 enlisted men killed, died of wounds and disease in addition to many more who were wounded and survived.

Truly a hard fought regiment.  [AD] [PH:L]
