This Corps badge belonged to Howard Rogers of the 7th New York Artillery. Rogers enlisted in August of 1862 in the 113th Infantry which was soon converted to a Heavy Artillery unit, the 7th New York. He mustered in as a Lieutenant and was twice promoted. The 7th saw action at Sottsylvania, North Anna, Totopotomy, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Mine Explosion, Deep Bottom and Ream's Station where Rogers was captured and not paroled until February of 1865. A good history and a great 2nd Corps badge.
