Description of the book that contains the above roster:

The Civil War Letters of William A. Robinson & the Story of the 89th New
York Volunteer Infantry - Robert J. Taylor.
President Lincoln's call for volunteers to fight for  the restoration of the Union was answered by common men throughout the United States.  William A. Robinson was one of them, a simple farmer and a family man from Delaware County, NY, who enlisted for a three year term in Co. I of the 89th NY Volunteer Infantry in the fall of 1861.  Over the course of those three years Robinson and his fellows in the 89th would see service throughout the South, participating in engagements at South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Suffolk, VA, the Federal siege of
Fort Sumpter (1863), Cold Harbor, Petersburgh and Fair Oaks.  After Robinson's discharge in 1864, the unit continued its hard campaigning and was present for the final skirmishes with General Lee's army at Appomattox.  Robinson wrote home to his wife Mary as often as the rigors of soldiering would allow, and over 100 of these letters have survived to the present day.
Robert J. Taylor has transcribed Robinson's Civil War letters in their entirety, supplemented by a history of the 89th NY with accompanying rosters and an index of full names.
