Regimental History
One Hundred and Thirty-fifth Infantry. Col., Andrew Legg; Lieut.-Col, Conduce H. Gatch ; Maj., David Thomas. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 11, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 5th Ohio National Guard, from Licking county, and the 32nd battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Hardin county. It started on the day of its organization for Cumberland, Md., but was soon ordered to Martinsburg, and the companies were distributed along the Baltimore & Ohio railroad at Kearneysville, North mountain, Van Clevesville, and Opequan Station, with headquarters at Martinsburg. The companies at North mountain were surrounded by the enemy and after about 3 hours of hard fighting were compelled to surrender. The regiment encamped near Maryland heights until July 6, when it moved to John Brown's school-house, at which place it was engaged in a skirmish. After this it was placed on the heights to guard the artillery and remained on duty there until it was ordered to be mustered out. It arrived at Camp Chase on Aug. 28, and was mustered out on Sept. 1, 1864.
