Regimental History
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.
