Regimental History
One Hundred and Fifty-first Infantry. Col., John M. C. Marble; Lieut.-Col., Richard T. Hughes; Maj., John L. Williams. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 13, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 33d regiment, Ohio National Guard, from Allen county, and the 57th battalion, from Hocking county. On May 14 the regiment left Camp Chase for Washington, D. C, via Ohio Central and Baltimore railroads. It reached Washington on May 21, reported to Gen. Augur, and was stationed at Forts Sumner, Mansfield and Simmons. During the active operations of the Confederates against Washington in July the larger part of the regiment was under fire, several of the companies being in the forts which were engaged in the battle. Cos. C and G were at Fort Stevens, I at Battery Smead, and K at Fort Kearny. On Aug. 17 orders were received to concentrate the regiment at Fort Simmons, and from this place it moved via Baltimore and Pittsburg to Camp Chase, where it arrived on the 23d. It was mustered out on Aug. 27, 1864.
