Lieutenant Colonel Richard C. Bentley (WIA)
Adjutant Miles McDonald
Quartermaster James J. McCormick

Company A: Captain Thomas Touhy, 1st Lt. Patrick Chambers, 2nd Lt. Thomas K. Joyce
Company B: Captain James D. Brady, 1st Lt. Edward Lee, 2nd Lt. Dominick Connolly (captured)

Due to very heavy casualties since the previous autumn, the New York and Pennsylvania regiments in the brigade were consolidated into battalions in June 1863. The excess officers (and a handful of sergeants who were up for promotion to lieutenant) were mustered out of the service.

Colonel Henry Fowler was still recovering from the wound that he suffered at Antietam and would be discharged from the service on July 4, 1863.
