One Hundred and Fifty-fourth Infantry. Col., Robert Stevenson; Lieut.-Col., Joseph E. Wilson; Maj., William A. Neil. This regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, May 9, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 23d battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Madison county, and the 60th regiment, Ohio National Guard, from Green county. On May 12 it proceeded via Columbus and Bellaire to New creek, W. Va., arriving on the evening of the 14th. On the 22nd Co. F was ordered to Piedmont, where it remained until the regiment started to Ohio for muster-out. The regiment performed guard, picket and escort duty until May 29, when one company moved to Youghiogheny bridge and the remaining eight companies to Greenland gap. On June 4 a detachment of the regiment had a skirmish with McNeil's battalion near Moorfield. Detachments of the regiment were sent out on various scouting expeditions from June 12 to July 4, and on July 25 the regiment again fell back to New creek. An attack was made by the Confederates on the forces at New creek on Aug. 4. On the evening of Aug. 22 the regiment started for Ohio and was mustered out on Sept. 1, 1864.
