    • The 22nd Maine Volunteer Infantry was unique among most other nine-month regiments in that rather than spending their enlistment on garrison duty at some safe duty station, they served on the front lines — in Louisiana.
      Soon after their enlistment, these volunteers were ordered to Louisiana as part of the occupation forces for Baton Rouge. Facing boredom and sickness, they got their first taste of real army life. Slowly they became veterans as theypatrolled this guerrilla-infested region of the Deep South.
      In March 1863 they joined Gen. Nathaniel Banks’ advance toward Port Hudson. They witnessed the naval action on the river in which Adm. David Farragut’s fleet got the worst of it from Port Hudson’s shore batteries. They later “saw theelephant” for the first time at the Battle of Irish Bend, where they were lightly engaged.
      Stationed next at New Iberia, Louisiana, their Co. E had to deal with a slave insurrection at St. Martinville. This rebellion was against Cajun French masters. Armed with hoes, axes and a few guns, the slaves were determined to win theirfreedom without waiting for help from the U.S. Army.
      In May 1863 the men of the 22nd saw their first real combat when they were in Banks’ expedition that captured Port Hudson. Now veterans of many months’ hard service, they participated in two assaults and suffered many casualties. Soonafter Port Hudson’s surrender, they were sent home to be mustered out. http://www.civilwarnews.com/reviews/2011br/jan/22maine-smith-b011132.html
