Regarding 9th Regt. Conn. Vol. Memorial. Known as the "Irish Regiment" due to the predominant makeup of soldiers born in Ireland, the Ninth Regiment was formed in New Haven in September of 1861. They left in November with 845 men via Boston on the steamer Constitution and landed in Ship Island, Mississippi. After duty at New Orleans and Baton Rouge the Ninth was assigned to an "expeditionary" force at "Williams Canal" on June 25, 1862, along with regiments from four other states. The canal was an attempt to allow Union ships to navigate the Mississippi River while bypassing Confederate guns at

Vicksburg, Poor supplies, lack of drinking water, forced drilling at the start of each day and temperatures that reached 115 degrees quickly took their toll as malaria, dysentery and other disease spread overnight. The project was abandoned July 24, 1862. Some 150 men of the Ninth died of disease within four months, starting with their arrival at the canal.
The Ninth Regiment saw action at Biloxi, Pass Christian, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Bermuda Hundred and Deep Bottom and in the Shenandoah Valley at Cedar Creek, Fishers Hill and Opequon. 250 men from the Ninth Regiment died during the war.
