|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.
