Biographical / Historical

First Massachusetts Regiment Company E was a voluntary reserve military unit based in New Bedford. One of the events they participated in was a state wide marksmanship contest, for which they sponsored a rifle team. They also competed in drills and marches. The regiment maintained an armory and a rifle range. They met monthly at the New Bedford Armory on Purchase Street and often participated in activities with the G.A.R. In September of 1887 the company traveled to Philadelphia to participate in the Centennial Celebration of the drafting of the Constitution.
