3RD INFANTRY
Three Years
Third Infantry. Cols., Henry C. Lester, Chauncey W.
Briggs, Christopher C. Andrews, Hans Mattson; Lieut.-Cols.,
Benjamin F. Smith, Everett W. Foster, James B. Hoit; Majs.,
John A. Hadley, Benjamin F. Rice, William W. Webster. This
regiment was organized during the summer and fall of 1861, and
was mustered in Nov. 15. It left the state on the 17th for
Louisville, where it went into camp. On DEC. 6, it left for
Shepherdsville, where six companies were detailed to guard
bridges, the other four being sent to Lebanon Junction for the
same purpose. It was assigned to the 16th brigade, Army of
the Ohio, went into camp near Nashville March 24, 1862, and on
April 27, moved to Murfreesboro, from which place several
expeditions were made. It was at Murfreesboro in July,
supporting a battery, when Forrest's cavalry charged, and was
finally surrendered to Forrest against the protests of most of
the men in, line. A camp guard of 20 men had repulsed four
times that number in two assaults, but was finally overcome in
a third charge led by Forrest in person. All the officers who
advocated the surrender, including the colonel, were later
dismissed from the service. Lieut.-Col. Griggs and Capts.
Andrews and Hoit were the only officers present who voted
against surrendering. Lieut. Vanstrum offered his ballot, but
he arrived after the council was over. The regiment was sent
to Madison, Ga., for three months, then to Libby prison, where
it was paroled and sent to Nashville. An attempt was made to
induce the men to break their parole, and they were criticized
for surrendering. They resented the injustice, declined to
break their parole, and were sent to Benton barracks. Co. C,
commanded by Lieut. Grummons was at Shelbyville at the time of
the surrender and was sent to Tullahoma. It returned to
Murfreesboro, where it joined the 2nd Minn. infantry and was
ordered to Fort Snelling in October. There it joined the
regiment, which had been exchanged in August, and remained in
Minnesota to aid in putting down the Indian raids. The
regiment joined Gen. Sibley at Fort Ridgely in September,
after a forced march from Fort Snelling, and in the expedition
from the fort it was always in the advance. On the 23rd a
small party left camp to get a load of potatoes from Yellow
Medicine agency and it was attacked by a force of several
hundred Indians about a mile from camp. The 3rd was on the
ground in a few minutes and while falling back in order 250
men repulsed 700 Indians, then with reinforcements routed them
in a bayonet charge. This came to be known as the battle of
Wood Lake Camp was made at a point known later as Camp
Release, and there the regiment remained in the field until
Nov. 14, when it reported at Fort Snelling and was furloughed
until DEC. 3. About 70 members who were home on sick leave
marched on Sept. 11, to the relief of Fort Abercrombie reached
there on the 23rd and participated in several skirmishes.
They joined the command at Camp Release in October. The
regiment was reorganized in December, Lieut.-Col. Griggs being
made colonel; Capt. Andrews, lieutenant-colonel, and
promotions were made from the ranks to fill the vacancies.
This went far towards restoring the morale of the regiment,
which had been affected by the unfortunate action at
Murfreesboro. The ranks were soon recruited and on Jan. 23,
1863, the regiment left the state a second time, going to
Cairo, Ill., and thence to Columbus KY. In March, it moved to
Fort Heiman and remained there some time to break up
Confederate conscription. In May, it was ordered to Vicksburg
and on June 8, reached Haynes' bluff, where it was made a part
of Kimball's provisional division of the 16th corps. It took
part in intrenching the place and on the 15th took position at
Snyder's bluff, remaining there until the surrender. On July
23, it made part of a force for the campaign in Arkansas, and
was assigned to the 2nd brigade, 2nd division. It moved to
Helena, thence to Brownsville, on to Bayou Fourche, being
present at the engagement there in September, and made part of
the force that occupied Little Rock during the fall and
winter, being selected as one of the two infantry regiments
for "its efficiency and discipline." Reenlistment of most of
the men under the veteran order followed, and the old members,
three companies, were furloughed home in Jan., 1864. On April
1, a detachment of the regiment participated in a sharp
conflict at Fitzhugh's woods, repelling a cavalry charge by a
counter charge with bayonets. The regiment took part in the
inauguration of Isaac Murphy first free-state governor of
Arkansas, and then moved to Pine Bluff for the summer where it
suffered much from malarial poison. Six companies were sent
home on furlough in August, and in October, the regiment
quartered at Devall's Bluff for winter, performing picket and
scouting duty. It moved to Batesville, May 13, 1865, and on
June 1, headquarters were established at Jacksonport. Cos. D
and G were left at Batesville A and F were sent to Searcy, E
and H to Augusta, and later C and I to Powhatan. On June 3,
Confederate Gen. Jeff Thompson surrendered his command to Col.
Mattson and the regiment was mustered out at Devall's Bluff
Sept. 2, 1865. Gov. Isaac Murphy, the only man in the
secession convention of Arkansas to vote "no," steadfast in
his allegiance to the Union, and the state's first free soil
governor, said of the men of the regiment: "They have proved
ready for any undertaking and reliable in every emergency.
Such men are an honor to the government. Their state may
justly be proud of them." Parents: Lemuel , Jr. CROSBY and Selina Jane PARK.

Lemuel III CROSBY was born on 10 May 1846 in Yarmouth, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. Lemuel Crosby, Jr. was born in Nova Scotia and removed with his parents, first to Elgin County Ontario, and then to Minnesota. As a young man he enlisted in the Union Army and fought in the American Civil War. He settled in Missouri, and never returned to live in Minnesota. Ref: letter of Miss Jessie M. Crosby to Mr. Long. PANS, Nova Scotia.
I found in “Minnesota in the Civil and Indian Wars, 1861 -1865” St. Paul
Pioneer Press Company, 1890, Page 482, a Private Lemuel Crosby, Company G,
10th Minnesota Mounted Infantry. Roster states he was 18 years of age when
mustered in, September 15, 1862. The roster further states he was mustered out
August 19, 1865 with the Regiment at Fort Snelling, Minnesota.
The following is a brief synopsis of the Regiment’s history.
A part of Company G of LeSueur, known as the “Le Sueur Tigers ” took part in
the defense of New Elm during the battle with the Sioux Indians. The winter of
1862-63 the regiment spent its time doing guard duty and building stockades
along the frontier.
In February 1863 Company G was among those companies that acted as guard units
during the execution of the Indians at Mankato, Minnesota.
In the spring of 1863 the Regiment was one of many that participated in the
campaign into the Dakota Territory. At the completion of the campaign the
Regiment returned to Fort Snelling where it remained until October 23, 1863,
when it was ordered to St. Louis, Missouri where it performed garrison and
provost duty.
On April 22, 1864 the Regiment was ordered to Columbus, Kentucky where they
remained until ordered to Memphis, Tennessee on the 19th of June. During their
stay in Memphis the regiment participated in several important expeditions,
chief of which was the attacking of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, then in
Mississippi and on his way to cut Sherman's line of communications. The major
battle was the Battle of Tupelo, where the 10th was held in reserve.
In September the regiment was placed on steamers and headed for St. Louis and
then to Jefferson City where it arrived on October 18th. From there they
pursued General Price through Sedalia, Lexington and Independence, Missouri.
After the Price pursuit the Regiment proceeded directly to Nashville,
Tennessee, after stopping at Benton Barracks, St. Louis for several days to
refit. They arrived at Nashville on November 30th and participated in the
Battle of Nashville on the 15th and 16th of December 1864.
The regiment was then sent to Eastport, Mississippi, arriving on January 7,
1865. After a two week rest they were transported across Mobile Bay where they
took part in the capture of Spanish Fort, one of the defensive works of Mobile
about 9 miles south of the city.
In July 1865, after the end of the war, the regiment was marched to Vicksburg
and took steamers to St. Louis. After a three day wait they boarded
steamers to St. Paul, where they arrived on August 7, 1865. From there they
went to Fort Snelling where the muster rolls were made and the unit mustered
out. Parents: Lemuel , Jr. CROSBY and Selina Jane PARK.


Lemuel , Jr. CROSBY was born on 9 January 1809 in Yarmouth, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. He died on 12 December 1901 at the age of 92 in LeSueur, Lesueur County, Minnesota. A letter to Mr. Long in Nova Scotia, held at the Liverpool Museum, Liverpool Nova Scotia, from a Miss Jessie M. Crosby [c. 1932] tells that Lemuel Crosby and Selina Jane Park Crosby, first removed to Elgin County Ontario,[1846 and then [Hazel Parks notes state that they removed to Minnesota ten years later, 1856. But if Selina Jane's death date is correct then they must have removed prior to 1850.]] to Minnesota. Selina Jane died soon after their arrival in Minnesota. Mar 3, 1850. Miss Crosby's father was Lemuel Drew III, the son of Lemuel and Selina Jane [called Jane] and that as a young man he enlisted in the Civil war, and after that settled in Missouri, never to return to Minnesota.
Solomon Park Family bible gives two additional sons, Wesley and William. One of these may be James W., as, in some other entries in other families, the second names of some children have been used as additional children, this may be the case, however, there still may have been these two other sons. There are also two "Selina Jane" Crosby's given, one of whom died young.
