|One Hundred and Twenty-eighth Infantry. — Col., Charles
W. Hill; Lieut.-Cols., William S. Pierson, Edward A. Scovill, Thomas H.
Linnell; Maj., Junius R. Sanford. This regiment was organized at
Columbus, Johnson's island, and Camp Cleveland from Dec. 7, 1861, to
Jan. 8, 1864, to serve for three years. Cos. A, B, C and D were
originally known as Hoffman's battalion and were transferred to this
regiment Jan. 5, 1864. The regiment was principally engaged in guarding
Confederate prisoners at Johnson's island, but had frequently furnished
detachments for service elsewhere, including a short but active campaign
in pursuit of Confederate troops in West Virginia in 1862. The original
members of Cos. A and B were mustered out on Jan. 20, and Feb. 28, 1865,
by reason of expiration of term of service, and the remainder of the
regiment was mustered out on July 13, 1865, in accordance with orders
from the war department.
