Regimental History
One Hundred and Fifth Infantry. Col., Albert S. Hall; Lieut.-Cols., William R. Tolles, George T. Perkins; Maj., Charles G. Edwards. This regiment was organized at Camp Cleveland, Aug. 20 and 21, 1862, to serve for three years. Within one hour after muster-in the regiment, 1,013 strong, was on the march to the station, under orders to leave the state. Its first field of operations was in Kentucky and after various marches in which it suffered much, it left Louisville in October, marched via Taylorsville and Bloomfield, to Perryville, where it was engaged in the battle of that name. The regiment went into this battle 800 strong and of these 48 were killed and 217 wounded, many of whom died of their wounds. Passing next into Tennessee, the regiment remained at Murfreesboro until the following June, when it broke camp to participate in the Tullahoma campaign. It was engaged at Chickamauga and was highly complimented by the brigade commander. The casualties of the regiment in this battle were 80 killed, wounded and prisoners, and as two of the largest companies were not in the engagement the casualties were proportionately very heavy. The regiment took part in the maneuvers at Chattanooga and participated in the battle of Missionary ridge, its loss being comparatively slight. In the long and fatiguing Atlanta campaign of many skirmishes and battles, the regiment made a good record, and although not immediately engaged in any of the heavy engagements, its casualties were large. After the fall of Atlanta it marched to the sea and up through the Carolinas, thence to Washington, and then home, being mustered out on June 3, 1865. Of the 1,013 men who left Cleveland in 1862 only 427 were present at the final roll-call.
