Regimental History
One Hundred and Forty-second Infantry. Col., William C. Cooper ; Lieut.-Col., William Rogers; Maj., William M. Young. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 13, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 22nd battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Knox county; 68th battalion, from Williams county; and a part of the 69th battalion, from Coshocton county. On May 14 it left Columbus for Martinsburg, W. Va., where it remained until May 19, when it left for Washington, D. C. From Washington it marched to Fort Lyon and remained there until June 5, when orders were received to report to Gen. Abercrombie, at White House landing. It took steamer at Alexandria on June 7 and arrived at White House on the 9th, but was immediately sent to guard a supply-train through the Wilderness to Gen. Grant's front near Cold Harbor. It was then ordered to report at Bermuda Hundred, but without being permitted to land it was conveyed on transports to Point of Rocks. On Aug. 19, it received orders to repair to Washington City and thence to Camp Chase, O., where it was mustered out on Sept. 2, 1864.
