Identity[edit]

Is this unit the same as 7th New York Militia? If so, the articles should be merged. If not, they should mention the distinction. Jim.henderson (talk) 03:33, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. I don't see any mention of separate "infantry" and "militia" divisions here, which would imply that they're the same. Unfortunately, the dates in the militia article don't agree with the dates in this article, and the militia article doesn't cite any sources, so there's no way of knowing where the dates come from. The 7th New York Militia article includes a lot more information, but I'm reluctant to merge them if I can't verify that information, first. Katya (talk) 14:15, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
