Regimental History
One Hundred and Forty-fourth Infantry. Col., Samuel H. Hunt; Lieut.-Col., Frederick R. Miller; Maj., Marquis D. L. Buell. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 11, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 64th battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Wood county, and the 19th battalion, from Wyandotte county. It was ordered to report without delay to Gen. Wallace at Baltimore. Upon its arrival in that city Cos. G and K were detached for duty in the fortifications and the remainder of the regiment reported to Gen. Morris at Fort McHenry. From there Co. E was ordered to Wilmington, Del. ; Co. B to Camp Parole, near Annapolis ; and Co. I to Fort Dix, at the Relay House. On May 18 the regiment was relieved from duty at Fort McHenry and ordered to the Relay House. Cos. B, G and I were in the engagement at Monocacy Junction, losing in killed, wounded and prisoners about 50 men. On July 13 the regiment was ordered to Washington and from there moved toward Winchester. It halted at Snicker's gap and was moved back toward Washington, but it was soon again faced toward the Shenandoah Valley, moving via Harper's Ferry. On Aug. 13 a portion of the regiment, while guarding a train near Berryville, Va., was attacked by Mosby's command with 2 pieces of artillery. The detachment lost 5 killed, 6 wounded and 60 captured. The regiment was mustered out Aug. 24 and 31, 1864, on expiration of term of service.
