The 146th New York Infantry was recruited in Oneida County New York during the late summer of 1862 by Colonel Kenner Garrard and were given the nickname the "5th Oneida Regiment. The regiment first went to war wearing the standard issue blue uniform of the Federal Army and in June of 1863 were issued the Light blue and yellow trimmed Zouave uniform seen here. The 146th New York wore this uniform as they helped defend Little Round Top during the battle of Gettysburg and throughout the remainder of their service in the American Civil War.
David, a 26-year-old lawyer and a skilled engineer who had graduated from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute, helped recruit the 117th New York Infantry (Fourth Oneida), before taking the field as a first lieutenant and adjutant of the 146th. He quickly rose to the rank of colonel. Leading the Zouaves of the 146th in a desperate charge at Saunders Field at the Battle of the Wilderness on May 5, 1864, David was twice wounded. The last that was ever seen of him, he was holding himself up with his sword and encouraging his men. He disappeared amidst the smoke and fury of battle, and his body was never recovered.
James was a 20-year-old Hamilton College student when the war began. He left his classes to become an officer in the Oneida Cavalry-an independent company that had the distinguished honor of being posted to the headquarters guard of the Army of the Potomac. James transferred to the 146th and was wounded in the neck by a sharpshooter while engaged on Little Round Top at Gettysburg, on July 2, 1863. Late in 1864, James returned to command the Oneida Cavalry and served to the end of the war.
The original printing of this book (1889) came about largely through the efforts of A. Pierson Case-a first lieutenant and quartermaster of the 146th. He personally knew the Jenkins boys and thought much of them. Not only did he pay tribute to his departed gallant friends, he gives an informative and concise history of the 146th, replete with anecdotes, that makes for entertaining reading. The memorials, written to eulogize the Jenkins brothers, tender ample tribute to their patriotic nature. This reprint will ensure that their sacrifices and courageous exploits will not be forgotten. These two soldiers deserved "the highest praise of gallantry."
