H. Colby was killed, in a charge made, with many soldiers of the Regiment killed and wounded; and almost daily during the siege was some soldier either killed or wounded, carried to the rear for burial or medical assistance. For forty-eight days constant vigilance and a gradual approach upon the enemy were the order of the day. On the morning of the 4th of July the Regiment welcomed the joyful intelligence of the surrender of the enemy.
