One Hundred and Thirtieth Infantry. Col., Charles H. Phillips ; Lieut.-Col., John Faskin; Maj., Elijah B. Hall. This regiment was organized at Johnson's island from May 13 to 31, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 1st regiment Ohio National Guard, from Lucas county, and the 75th battalion Ohio National Guard, from Fulton county. The regiment left Toledo on May 12, 1864, to report to Brig.- Gen. Hill at Sandusky for consolidation and muster-in. It moved to Johnson's island and was engaged in guarding Confederate prisoners. On June 4 the regiment took the cars for Washington, D. C. It remained there but three days, when it embarked on the transport George Weems and reported to Gen. Butler at Bermuda Hundred, from which place it was ordered to Point of Rocks. The time was occupied in drilling, digging rifle-pits and picketing the lines until June 21, when it marched to Deep Bottom and remained there until Aug. 11. It was mustered out at Toledo, Sept. 22, 1864, on expiration of term of service.
