|One Hundred and Third Infantry. — Col., John S.
Casement; Lieut- Cols., James T. Sterling, Philip C. Hayes; Majs.,
DeWitt C. Howard, Henry S. Pickands. This regiment was organized in the
state at large, in Aug. and Sept., 1862, to serve for three years.
Having received arms in Cincinnati, it crossed over to Covington, where
it was furnished with clothing and other necessaries for camp life and
thus equipped it marched out to Fort Mitchel. Its first year of service
was spent in Kentucky, but in the fall of 1863 it was ordered to eastern
Tennessee, where in its first engagement, at Blue Springs, it lost 3
killed, 4 wounded, and 6 taken prisoners. During the siege of Knoxville
the regiment lost about 35 in killed and wounded. In May, 1864, it
formed part of Sherman's grand army and in the engagement at Resaca lost
over one-third of its effective force. The regiment lost heavily during
the Atlanta campaign. On May 1 its effective force numbered 450 men, but
when Atlanta had fallen it could only muster 195. It followed Hood to
Tennessee and had another opportunity of showing its pluck at the battle
of Spring Hill. After Hood had been driven from Nashville the regiment
went to North Carolina, thence to Ohio, and was mustered out on June 12,
