9th Army Corps Page

The symbol or badge of the 9th Corps is appropriate (crossed anchor and cannon entwined in rope), given their propensity toward travel by boat.  The 9th Corps was formed on July 22, 1862 commanded by Ambrose E. Burnside.  Burnside's three divisions were initially commanded by Gen. Isaac Stevens, Gen. Jesse Reno; and Gen. John G. Parke.  Of the original Division commanders, only Parke survived the war.  Stevens was killed at Chantilly and Reno at South Mountain.
