Against the backdrop of the June 1863 draft riots that plagued New York City, the 33rd New Jersey regiment was enlisting fresh recruits for battle in the Civil War. Despite a desertion rate of almost 25 percent prior to departing, the 33rd set out for what proved to be a trek across much of the southeastern United States. There, they engaged in three major campaigns under the command of Gen. William T. Sherman and laid waste to much of the Deep South before returning home in July 1865.
