Welcome to the home page of the 123rd New York Volunteer Infantry of the American Civil War!
This site is a project of the 28th Georgia / 123rd New York Volunteer Infantry reenacting unit, a non-profit organization, that allows us to share information about the 123rd New York. Much of the information on this site was submitted to us from decendants and historians of the 123rd New York and we thank all of you for your contributions and support.
If you would like to submit information about the regiment, please contact our webmaster.
Help support the
123rd New York Monument for the Resaca Battlefield!
We are in the middle of fundraising efforts to place a monument to the
123rd New York on the Resaca Battlefield in Resaca, Georgia. The 123rd New York fought there on May 14-15, 1864. This will be the very first monument to the regiment anywhere in Georgia or anywhere in the entire Western Theater of Operations.

Our Fundraiser Book
We are about to wrap up our booklet, Letters Home: The 123rd New York Infantry in the Atlanta Campaign, which consists of letters and diary excerpts from the 123rd New York that were written during the Atlanta Campaign and the March to the Sea. The book will be used to help raise money for the new 123rd New York monument at the Resaca Battlefield. 100% of the proceeds from this book will go directly to the 123rd New York monument.
The booklet is paperback, 8 1/2 x 11 inches in size, 80 pages, and contains over 85 letters and diary excerpts and 26 black and white / color photos, maps, and illustrations. Keep checking back here for availability!
