Instead of replacing units as they were depleted, Vermont regularly provided recruits to bring the units in the field back up to normal strength. The first military action seen by Vermonters was at the Battle of Big Bethel in June of 1861, where a battalion of the 1st Vermont Infantry was engaged. The 1st Vermont Brigade saw action in nearly every major engagement in the Eastern Theater from the First Battle of Bull Run to Appomattox Court House.
