Regimental History
One Hundred and Twenty-ninth Infantry. Col., Howard D. John; Lieut.-Col., George L. Hayward; Maj., Charles Mitchener. This regiment was organized at Cleveland, Aug. 10, 1863, to serve for six months, and on the same day started for Camp Nelson, Ky. On Aug. 20 it left Camp Nelson for Cumberland gap, at which place it assisted in the capture of the Confederate garrison more than 2,000 prisoners, with a large amount of war materials of all kinds. The regiment remained at and about the gap, engaged in foraging, scouting, picket duty, etc., until Dec. 1, when it was ordered to move in the direction of the Clinch river, which was reached the next day, at a point where the Knoxville road crosses that stream. There a sharp engagement was in progress, in which the regiment took an active part. From Dec. 2 to 31, the regiment had occasional skirmishes with the enemy. It was mustered out from March 4 to 10, 1864.
