New England Region 172-EN
Welcome to the 5th C.V.I.'s Home page.
The original Fifth CVI was recruited during 1861 from through out the state. The Fifth CVI fought the first two years of the war as unit of the Army of the Potomac. After Gettysburg the Fifth CVI was reassigned to the Army of the Cumberland and later served under Sherman on his infamous "March to the Sea". The Fifth was mustered out of service in July of 1865.
