Id’d Civil War Period Tin Cup with Veteran Painted Winter Scene – Lt. Charles H. Dunbar Co. H 35th Mass. Infantry – This relatively small, soldered, tin cup was seemingly, artfully embellished by Lt. Charles H. Dunbar, shortly after the war. In all likelihood, this cup was Dunbar’s during his time in the 35th Massachusetts Infantry; we have encountered many soldier’s personal, war period items, painted, after the war, thereby commemorating their service. Lt. Dunbar painted or inked, on the bottom of the cup, the following:

C.H. Dunbar

May 1st 1866

Charles H. Dunbar enlisted in August, 1862 into Co. H of the 35th Massachusetts Infantry. During the Battle of Antietam, on September 17, 1862, Dunbar was listed as missing. He would return safely to his regiment, only to be wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg, on December 13, 1862. Dunbar again returned to his regiment and was promoted to the rank of 1st Lieutenant, in January, 1863. Dunbar remained with the 35th Mass. until being discharged for disability, in June, 1864. Interestingly, Dunbar was employed as a house painter, after the war. During Lt. Dunbar’s service, his regiment would participate in numerous engagements to include: the Battles of South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, the Siege of Vicksburg, the Knoxville Campaign, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania,  North Anna and Totopotomoy. The cup remains in very good condition, with some minor areas of paint loss, in the winter scene.

THIRTY-FIFTH REGIMENT
MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER INFANTRY
THREE YEARS

     The 35th Regt. Mass. Vol. Inf. was organized at Camp

Stanton, Lynnfield, and was composed mostly of men enrolled in

eastern Massachusetts.  It was recruited during July and the

early part of August, 1862, and its members were mustered into

the service largely between August 9 and 19.  Under Col. Edward

A. Wild the regiment left for the seat of war August 22, reaching

B. Washington on the 24th.  On Sept. 8, it was assigned

to Ferrero’s (2d) Brigade, Sturgis’ (2d) Division, Reno’s (9th)

Corps.

Joining the Army of the Potomac it took part in the battle

of South Mountain, Sept. 14, 1862, where Col. Wild lost his

left arm.  At Antietam, Sept. 17, under command of Lieut. Col.

Carruth, the regiment lost 214 officers and men, of whom 69

were killed or mortally wounded.  At Fredericksburg, Dec. 13,

1862, it again suffered severely, losing Major Willard, who was

in command. It camped during the early part of the winter near

Falmouth.

 

On Feb. 9, 1863, it was transferred to Newport News, Va.,

and, after a few weeks stay at this place, was sent with the

9th Corps into Kentucky, being stationed at Mount Stirling,

Lancaster, Stanford, and other places.  Lieut. Col. Carruth now

became colonel of the regiment.  It was next ordered to

Vicksburg, Miss., to reinforce Gen. Grant, remaining about four

weeks, until the surrender of the city, July 4.  It

participated in the pursuit of Johnston’s army to Jackson,

Miss., and was present at the capture of the city, then

returned to its old camp near Vicksburg.  From here it

proceeded by boat and train to Cincinnati, reaching there the

14th of August.

 

Proceeding to Knoxville, Tenn., which it reached Oct. 22,

it participated in the defense of the city against Longstreet.

After the close of the siege, Dec. 4, the 35th soon proceeded

to Blain’s Cross Roads, where it remained, enduring great

privations, until January, 1864.  After various movements  -to

Knoxville, Morristown, and elsewhere-  the regiment returned to

Cincinnati.  Here, April 1, it entrained for Baltimore, Md.,

from whence it took boat for Annapolis.

 

In the reorganization of the 9th Corps the regiment, now

commanded by Major Nat Wales, became a part of Carruth’s (1st)

Brigade, Stevenson’s (1st) Division.  During the battle of the

Wilderness, May 5 and 6, and the first part of that of

Spottsylvania, May 8 to 12, the 35th was in charge of the

supply train of the 1st Division, and was not engaged.

Returning to its brigade, May 17, on the following day it was

in the last assault on the Confederate lines at Spottsylvania,

moving thence to the North Anna River, where it was again

engaged, May 25.

 

It was now detailed as an engineer corps for the 1st

Division.  At Cold Harbor, June 3, it was posted near Bethesda

Church and suffered light loss.  Crossing the James on June 15,

the regiment participated in the siege of Petersburg.  At the

Crater fight, July 30, it was heavily engaged, losing 12 killed

and 34 wounded.  At Weldon Railroad, Aug. 19, it was again

engaged with loss.  It was now reduced to two officers and

about 100 men present for duty.  In another reorganization of

the 9th Corps early in September it was assigned to Curtin’s

(1st) Brigade, Potter’s (2d) Division.  About this time there

were added to the regiment 385 German and French substitutes,

recently arrived in this country and ignorant of the English

tongue.  Major Hudson now commanded the regiment.  At Poplar

Spring Church, Sept. 30, it was severely engaged, losing 163

prisoners.  For two months it was now posted near Forts Fisher

and Welsh. During the midwinter it was stationed in the rear of

Fort Sedgwick (Fort Hell).  From March 7, 1865, until the fall

of Petersburg, April 2, it formed a part of the garrison of

this fort.  It then joined in the pursuit of Lee’s army and

was at Farmville when the news came of the surrender.

 

Arriving at Alexandria, Va., April 28, it remained as a

part of the garrison of the District of Columbia until June 9,

when it transferred its recruits to the 29th Regiment and was

mustered out of the service.  Returning to Readville, Mass., on

June 27, the men were paid off and discharged.

The 35th Massachusetts was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Service

The 35th Massachusetts was organized at Boston and ChelseaMassachusetts, trained at Camp Stanton from August 1–22, 1862, and mustered in for three-year service on August 28, 1862 under the command of Colonel Edward A. Wild.

The regiment was attached to 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, IX CorpsArmy of the Potomac, to April 1863. Department of the Ohio to June 1863. Army of the Tennessee to August 1863, and Department of the Ohio to April 1864. 1st Brigade, 1st Division, IX Corps, Army of the Potomac, to May 1864.

The 35th Massachusetts mustered out of service on June 9, 1865 and was discharged June 27, 1865.

Company

Main article: Dedham, Massachusetts in the American Civil War

The results of the Peninsular campaign revealed the necessity of replenishing the army.[1] In early in July 1862, the President had called for 300,000 men for three years and assigned the quota of Massachusetts at 15,000 men.[2] The quota of Dedham, Massachusetts was 69 and the Selectmen, through whom thenceforward all recruiting during the war was carried on, issued their call for that number.[2] On July 21, the town voted to pay a bounty of $100 to each volunteer with aid to families.[2] It also appropriated $6,900 for the bounties.[2]

One of the largest and most impressive of the public meetings during the war was held July 10, before the legal town meeting.[3] Men were there inspired by an earnest purpose to devote themselves to the country.[3] After the preliminary discussion as to bounties, the roll was opened and then came a pause when it seemed doubtful if any would come forward.[3] The first man to sign that roll was the father of Joseph Jordan, the private who had been killed at Gaines Mills.[3] Another was a young man who had been recently graduated at the University and was beginning his professional studies.[3] A third announced his purpose in impressive and earnest words.[3] He would later receive a severe wound in battle and then nearly a year’s confinement in four rebel prisons.[3] The quota was soon filled.[3]

Uniting with men from Needham and Weston, the new recruits constituted Company I of the 35th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment.[3] Without any opportunities for drill or organization, the regiment left the state on August 22, 1862 for the seat of war.[3] On their arrival at Washington, they were immediately assigned to the defenses of the city in throwing up earthworks and doing picket duty.[3]
