Regimental history from Massachusetts Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines in the Civil War, compiled and published by the Adjutant General:


Thirteen companies of Massachusetts militia were called out and mustered into the United States service during April and May, 1864, to do guard and garrison duty at forts and military posts on or near the eastern coast of the State for the period of ninety days. Eight of these companies had been raised and organized as units of the Independent Division of Militia, a home guard division, authorized by Chapter 243 of the Acts of 1863, while the remaining five were detached from already existing regiments of Massachusetts Volunteer Militia.
