New York Guard

The 4th Brigade is all that remains of the New York Guard. It is commanded out of Buffalo by Brigadier General Edwin G. Ziegler. Under his command were four regiments and a truck company. The 3rd Regiment and one of the truck company’s platoons are still in Syracuse commanded by Colonel Edward M. McCabe. The 21st Regiment, which used to operate out of Rochester, was lost when that city was abandoned, what remained of it was absorbed into Syracuse. The 65th Regiment is stationed out of the Masten Avenue Armory in Buffalo. The 74th Regiment is split between the Connecticut Avenue Armory, the Tonawanda Armory (Company H), and the Niagara Falls Armory (3rd Battalion). The armories in Dunkirk, Jamestown, and Medina have been abandoned.
