Company A
Charles A. White - Private   
Pvt. Charles A. White answered Pres. Abraham Lincoln's first call for troops when he enlisted in Co. A, 3rd Mass. Inf. Rgt. on 17 Apr. 1861. Pvt. White shipped-out from Boston with his regiment on 17 Apr. 1861, arriving at Fortress Monroe on 20 Apr. 1861. Also on 20 Apr. 1861, Pvt. White and his regiment participated in the destruction of the Norfolk Navy Yard (to keep it out of Confederate hands). Pvt. White and the 3rd Mass. participated in garrison duty at Fortess Monroe and at Hampton until 16 Jul. 1861. On that date, Pvt. White and the 3rd Mass. were ordered home to Boston; they mustered-out of Federal service on 22 Jul. 1861. NOTE: by virtue of the fact that they were among the first responders to Pres. Abraham Lincoln's first call for troops in Apr. 1861, all members of the 3rd Mass. Inf. Rgt. (1861) were qualified for the RARE Massachusetts Minutemen of 1861 Medal.

Regimental history from Massachusetts Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines in the Civil War, compiled and published by the Adjutant General:

Under the call of August 4, 1862, for 300,000 militia for nine months, 19,080 being the number assigned to the quota of Massachusetts, the 3d Regt. again volunteered for duty and was sent to Camp Joe Hooker at Lakeville, Mass., to recruit to war strength. Eight companies were mustered into the service on the 23d of September and the remaining two on the 26th. Destined for duty in the department of North Carolina, the regiment embarked on the 22d of October and reached Beaufort on the 26th, the same day as the 5th Regt., and proceeded by rail to Newbern. It was not very actively engaged until December 11, when it started on the Goldsboro expedition, which occupied eleven days. Present at Kinston, Whitehall, and Goldsboro, the regiment suffered only slight loss, being little engaged. On January 26, 1863, it moved to Camp Jourdan near Fort Totten on the defenses of Newbern. After having been engaged in several minor expeditions, one for the relief of Washington, N. C., in June, its term of service having expired, it was ordered to Massachusetts. Embarking on the 11th of the month, on the 16th it arrived in Boston, and was mustered out at its old rendezvous, Camp Joe Hooker, Lakeville, Mass., June 26.

N.B. Company 'I' having been detached from the regiment Nov. 30, 1862 and sent to Plymouth N. C., was there engaged with a force of Confederate troops, Dec. 10, losing two men killed or mortally wounded and several prisoners.
