THE FIFTIETH ENGINEER REGIMENT
This regiment which achieved such distinction during the war, was organized by General Charles B. Stuart, during the months of July, August and September, 1861, at Elmira, by direction of the Secretary of War, as a regiment of engineers, pontoniers, sappers and miners, and was mustered into the service September 18, as Stuart’s Independent Volunteers.

At the breaking out of the Rebellion there was only a battalion of engineers in the regular army, and it soon became apparent that the command was entirely inadequate to perform the constantly -increasing duties of that branch of service.
General Stuart eminent as an engineer, was empowered to raise a regiment for this duty among those whose occupations adapted them to its performance. The organized regiment had men qualified to build railroads, run locomotives, and conduct trains and ranged from common laborer to first class lawyer and first class engineer.
Starting for the seat of war Sept. 18,1861, the engineers were quartered for a few days on the Battery , at New York, to receive arms and equipments; then, proceeding to Washington, they received quartermaster’s supplies on Meridian Hill, marched through Georgetown and continued to Fort Corcoran, and pitched their first camp on rebel soil. Here arose a difficulty. Enlisted for a special service, and promised the allowances pertaining, the War Department had made no provision for this class of soldiers, and the men were ordered into the field of infantry.
Severe denunciations of officers followed for making promises that they could not fulfill. Subsequently a special Act of Congress was passed, which placed the regiment upon its proper footing. Orders were received to proceed to Hall’s Hill, Virginia, and report to General Butterfield, then commanding a brigade in Fitz-John Porter’s Division. This force under General McClellan’s favorite officer, was composed largely of regulars, and contained many of the best regiments in the service. General Butterfield gave the regiment incessant exercise in the line of duty. There were drills by squad, company, regiment, and battalion, accompanied by guard and picket duty, while recitations in military tactics were the order for the night. During this time the regiment was reviewed four times,---once by General Porter and three time by General McClellan.
About November 1 the engineers were ordered to Washington to receive instructions in special duties of their branch, and going into camp near the navy -yard, the practice of bridge-building by the French ponton system was commenced. Thorough instruction was given in the construction of field fortifications, military roads, and to warlike appliances such as gabions, fascines, chevaux-de-frise, stockades, palisades, sap-rollers and block-houses.
Early in the spring of 1862 the regiment moved into Virginia, under the command of General Woodbury, of the regular engineers, and was assigned to General McDowell’s Corps, then covering Washington.
Marching to Manassas past the formidable guns which were the occasion of mirth and cheer, the command proceeded to Bristoe Station. An order was soon after received from General McClellan directing a return of the engineer brigade to join his force at Yorktown. With cheer upon cheer at the prospect of active service under the commanding office, the men countermarched at quick time for Alexandria, arriving April 10; the steamer “ Louisiana” took the 50th on board and conveyed it to Cheeseman’s Landing, near Yorktown, on the 13th, when duty at once began in the trenches, under incessant fire of the enemy’s batteries.
The regiment was now ordered to bring up the ponton bridges and throw bridges across the various streams that obstructed communications with different parts of the field, and to open roads for the passage of heavy artillery. It is difficult to realize the firmness required to perform these hazardous duties under the demoralizing effect of ponderous shell constantly exploding in their midst. During the siege an immense battery for ten thirteen-inch mortars was constructed by the regiment, and was to have opened on the enemy of the evacuation.
Sunday May 4, was ushered in bright and beautiful. It was a perfect day in the “Sunny South,” and the soldiers lay in their camps excitedly awaiting the opening of the mortar battery with its one-hundred pound shells, when the news spread that Yorktown was abandoned and the enemy in retreat. Gathering up the siege material, bridge trains, and tools used in investment, the regiment followed in pursuit of the enemy up the Peninsula by way of the Pamunkey River. Marching from West Point, on this river, to the White House, thence to the Chickahominy, near New Cold Harbor, bridges were at once commenced across this treacherous stream. At Bottom’s Bridge a portion of the structure was left standing and it was rapidly rebuilt for the passage of Casey’s Division to the battle of Seven Pines.
The Chickahominy, near Richmond , in a dry season is a mere brook, with more or less marsh on either side, and is often not more than ten to twenty yards wide; but on the night of March 30, while attempting to build a timber bridge across the stream at a point near Gaines’ house, it rose so rapidly during the prevalence of a heavy rain that the approaches to bridge were entirely under water, and in five hours the stream had widened to ten times its ordinary channel. For a time it was believed that the enemy had dammed the stream above, and had let down the accumulated water to destroy the bridges. It seemed a very crisis, and the engineers, in water to the waist, worked like beavers, momentarily expecting the enemy to open on them from the wood beyond. Anxiously awaiting to cross this bridge was the 44th Regiment, which had taken the place vacated by the 50th the year before at Hall’s Hill.
Six bridges at different points were rapidly constructed, covering a distance of six miles from one extreme to another, and known officially as Summer’s, Woodbury’s, Duane’s, Alexander’s, the Grapevine, and New Bridges, near Cold Harbor. June 26, Porter ordered the bridges on his front destroyed as the battle of Mechanicsville had that day commenced.
During the battle of Gaines’ Mills, next day, the pontoons were taken up and a portion of the regiment ordered forward, while the remainder were placed at different bridges to blow them up as soon as Porter’s Corps should cross from the battle then pending. Pushing on rapidly during the night Captain Spaulding and Lieutenant McDonald built two bridges at White Oak Swamp in time for Keyes’ Corps, who had advanced towards the James on that day. These two bridges were destroyed the next day by General French, commanding the rear-guard, just before the arrival of Stonewall Jackson at the swamp.
Pressing forward through the woods, with their muskets slung, the men plied their axes vigorously, opening parallel roads for the immense trains of heavy artillery hurrying on to Glendale and Malvern Hill. At the latter place the regiment slashed the woods for a long distance to enable the gunboats to open on the enemy during the expected battle there, and rendered very effective service in placing formidable obstructions along the right of the line, where the rebels subsequently attempted to capture our batteries. Still pressing forward in the advance with the ponton bridge, great difficulties were encountered from fugitives from the main army while laying the bridges over the smaller streams on the route and not until General Kearney had ordered the cavalry to clear the way did the engineers succeed in completing the last crossing that landed our heavy trains at Harrison’s Landing.
While at the landing the enemy made a demonstration on the front and the 50th was ordered up to participate in the expected engagement. Cheerfully and promptly they responded, but the movement proving a feint the men returned to their more legitimate duties. Anticipating an attack, McClellan ordered bridges constructed over Herring Creek and several smaller streams for the rapid co-operation of the different corps, then occupying a line about five miles in extent. While the bulk of the army seemed at rest, this regiment was constantly on duty, strengthening the defenses of the camp, and increasing the surrounding communications by opening new roads and facilitating the passage of supply-trains from the landing to the more distant troops on the outposts.
August 13 the regiment was divided into detachments, and ordered to the Chickahominy to prepare the way for the army about to evacuate the Peninsula. At Barnett’s Ferry a ponton bridge was laid nearly 1600 feet in length. General McClellan said it was the longest bridge known to him in history. During three day and nights this was occupied by the passing of infantry, cavalry, artillery, and the interminable supply-trains.
On the morning of the 19th General Pleasonton came up with the guard, and two gunboats took position to restrain the enemy while the bridge was dismantled. The bridge-equipage was taken to Fortress Monroe, and thence to Alexandria. September 30 the engineers set out for Aquia Creek to bridge for Burnside, then about to evacuate Fredericksburg. September 7 they were ordered back to the fortress, and from thence conveyed ponton and bridge-equipage to Washington. September 20 the regiment started for Harper’s Ferry, via Rockwell and Frederick City, with bridges to replace those destroyed by the enemy upon its retreat from Antietam. About the 25th a long ponton bridge was laid across the Potomac at Berlin, Md., six miles below Harper’s Ferry, and by that causeway the old Army of the Potomac once more crossed into Virginia. Later, an order came to proceed to Washington and partake in the campaign that culminated in the attack on Fredericksburg. Proceeding by rail, the engineers assisted at Washington to make up the desired bridge-equipage, and, November 19 started from the capital with fifty ponton-boats by land. It required nearly one thousand animals to draw this immense train of bridge material. Alexandria was scarcely reached when the rain poured down, and the road became a succession of quagmires. This march occupied six days and nights of arduous toil in rain and mud, the men lifting the wagons from the ruts and pushing them in as fast as possible.
Major Spaulding saw horses and men giving out, and the roads utterly impassable, and bridging the Occoquan at Occoquan City, crossed the stream made the boats into rafts, and took them via the Potomac to Belle Plain in tow of a large tug. The boats were immediately loaded on the wagons, with other material and the train moved to a position near and opposite to Fredericksburg on November 25. The regiment encamped neat to the Lacy House a few days and then went into camp at White-Oak Church.
The first week in December was occupied by Burnside’s chief of artillery and officers of the battalion in reconnoitering positions for crossing the river, about ten miles below the city. Roads were repaired and miles of corduroy laid through swamps approaching the river, along positions hidden from the enemy. After a few days the plan was changed, and the army was to cross opposite the city. The engineers were ordered to throw a bridge across opposite the city, at a point about 300 yards below the ruins of the railroad bridge. Carefully examining the route through an opening in the bluff, and repairing the road leading to the designated point during the night, every precaution was taken to approach the river without alarming the enemy’s pickets of the shore opposite.
On the morning of December 10 came the order to move near our position in the early morning, and during the night push along the river-bank reach the point and construct the bridge as rapidly as possible.
Moving silently along the river-bank, the engineers were in position at one o’clock on the morning of December 11, while a dense fog prevailing at the time lent its protection to shroud their movements. Rapidly making a detail of bridge-builders, the work was begun. The river at this point is between four and five hundred feet wide, requiring twenty-three boats to span the stream. The engineers were supported in their perilous work by two regiments of infantry. Pushing the work with great energy, the bridge was completed to within eighty or ninety feet of the opposite shore, when a force of the enemy posted behind a stone wall in front, and about two hundred yards distant, opened a deadly fire on the men clustered upon the bridge, killing and wounding several and driving the rest ashore.
The 89th New York Regiment poured a volley against the wall, while a battery from the bluff in vain attempted to dislodge the enemy from their defense. As the work on the bridge ceased the enemy’s fire was suspended.
It was finally resolved to finish the bridge at all hazards. The places of the killed and wounded were filled by fresh details, who with cheerfulness stepped forward on the forlorn hope. Captain McDonald alone walked to the end of the bridge, made an examination and returned unmolested. Again the detail reached the terminus and resumed work.
A few moments passed when a murderous volley was discharged by the enemy; Killing and wounding several. These two attempts to lay the bridge with a force of sixty men resulted in a loss of two killed and seventeen wounded. A third time the bridge was commenced and again were driven back by the enemy’s bullets. Infantry was now taken over by the engineers on boats, the enemy captured and the bridge finished. After crossing the army and back again to the Falmouth side they went into camp.
Bridges were laid April 29 below Fredericksburg and June 5 the regiment assisted in laying a bridge at Franklin’s Crossing under a severe fire from the enemy’s rifle pits. After the battle of Chancellorsville the engineers moved to Washington and June 25 marched to Poolesville, Md., and pushing on rapidly to Frederick City, reached Beaver Dam on the 30th. July 6 the engineers took their trains to Harper’s Ferry, and ferried over infantry to drive out the rebels holding the place. This done bridges were laid across the Potomac and Shenandoah, to connect London, Bolivar, and Maryland Heights. Moving down to Berlin, bridges were laid at a former site, where McClellan had crossed and here Meade’s victorious army marched once more into Virginia on the 18th and 20th of July. Until the 26th the men guarded the bridge from the Virginia side, then dismantling, moved to Washington via canal and ordered thence to Rappahanock Station, to take charge of all the bridges on the river. During August the Rappahanock was spanned at Beverly’s Ford, Kelly’s Ford, and the station.
Early in October, Lee began to menace the Union lines along the Rapidan, and the engineers were kept busy marching, building, and renewing bridges and finally constructing a fortified camp at Rappahanock Station, went into winter quarters.
April 12,1864, the battalions were assigned to different corps, and entered upon arduous service. At short notice bridges were laid, corps crossed and then dismantling and loading, rapid and fatiguing marches were made, and the process again and again repeated.
The engineers seemed empowered with ubiquity. At one time a bridge 200 feet long os laid in fifty minutes,a battalion marches to take part in the battle of the Wilderness, a bridge is built at Ely’s Ford to cross wounded then to Fredericksburg and on to the Pamunkey River, at Hanovertown. The bridges were dismantled June 2 and a movement was made to Cold Harbor.
Once more on that familiar stream the Chickahominy, at the ruins of Long Bridge, June 12, the position was reconnoitered and a small rebel force found on the opposite bank. At dark the engineers, launching the boats, took across the charging party, losing one man killed; then moving over the familiar road to Cole’s Ferry, on the Lowere Chickahonimy, assisted in laying a bridge of sixty boats, making a structure 1200 feet in length. Five boats were towed down this stream , passing the point crossed by McClellan on his retreat, in 1862, and then moved up the James to Fort Powhatan and City Point. At the battle of Reams’ Station the engineers were ordered into rifle-pits on the left of the field.
During the siege of Petersburg the men were distributed along the lines, and engaged in the construction of forts, with magazines, bomb-proofs, and traverses. Here the 50th constructed an immense fort, the largest built during the siege, the faces being 125 yards in length, with a relief of 15 feet. With an average daily detail of 1000 men its construction occupied three weeks.
October 1, an extension to the left required the construction of a chain of forts within short artillery range, and the 50th actively engaged in the work. The regiment rendered important service in repairing roads and extricating ammunition-trains. During the last of March, in the movement on Five Forks, Petersburg fell, and the need of pontons ceased. At Farmersville, on the Appomattox, was constructed the last ponton bridge used against the enemy by the Army of Potomac. The army of Lee surrendered. The long bridge over Staunton River was rebuilt and other services rendered, when when one evening the intelligence spread through the camps that a dispatch had just been received from General Meade, saying that the Arny of the Potomac would pass in review through Richmond on the following day, and if the engineer would reach the city in time the next morning they would be placed in the head if the column. This news was received with cheers and in an exultant mood the march was begun and completed. Pursuing their way with the long bridge-trains, the 50th reached the river at Frederickburg and laid bridges at the old points. Here Sherman’s army crossed on its way to Washington. The bridges were then removed and marching to Fort Berry, near Long Bridge the regiment went into camp June 1,1865.
At the grand review the 50th had the right of the column; then their labors done, there remained only a return home, a muster out , and a resumption of those civil duties whose steady pursuit had shown them not only approved soldiers , but industrious and excellent citizens.
