This feisty Irish Regiment was formed in the early 1850's in New York City. In 1859 the Regiment elected a new Colonel, Michael Corcoran. With the outbreak of the Civil War the 69th recruited rapidly to war strength. In less than two weeks after the attack on Fort Sumter the 69th left New York. Thomas Francis Meagher, a Irish-American activist immediately began recruiting his own company to be added to the 69th. Meagher had no trouble recruiting his "Irish Zouaves" and company K jointed the Regiment within a month. During its service the regiment lost by death, killed in action, 8 officers, 154 enlisted men; of wounds received in action, 5 officers, 94 enlisted men; of disease and other causes, 2 officers, 149 enlisted men; total, 15 officers, 397 enlisted men; aggregate, 412; of whom I officer and 63 enlisted men died in the hands of the enemy.
