This regiment was originally commanded by Arnolus Vanderhorse Brumby, then Felix L. Price, Robert W. Folsom, and lastly by Richard P. Lester. The men of the 14th fought throughout the war in Virginia and participated in every major encounter of the war. Only a handful of men of the regiment made it all the way through the war to surrender at Appomattox.
“The whole regiment was several times in imminent danger of being captured, inspired however, by the unwavering coolness and intrepid valor of their leaders, these war-worn and battle-scared veterans of many a bloody field would rally with enthusiasm around their tattered battle flag and drive back with severe loss the advances of their assailants.”
