Station List

 

In 1812 the U.S.Congress authorized 25 Regiments of Infantry. The 22nd Regiment of Infantry was constituted 26 June 1812. It fought at the battles of Chippewa and Lundy's Lane in Canada. The 22nd Regiment was consolidated with 6th, l6th, 23rd, and 32nd Infantry to form the 2nd Infantry Regiment. There was no 22nd Infantry between 1815 and 1866. Since the original 22nd consolidated to form the 2nd Infantry, its lineage is not carried by the current 22nd.
22nd Regiment is organized with Regimental HQ (RHQ) and ten companies (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, K) from 2nd Battalion 13th Infantry
