Unassigned Recruits

The following individuals enlisted in the 28th Massachusetts Infantry but were never assigned to any one of the ten
companies. As such, none ever saw any actual service in the field with the regiment. A quick perusal of the roster
indicates a variety of reasons for their absence. Some became ill before they left the state and were discharged from the
service. Others volunteered for service in the U.S. Navy and were transferred out of the regiment before they left
Boston. Still others deserted before ever reaching the regiment, or simply were unaccounted for either due to mistakes in
record-keeping or more likely, desertion.
