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

Ohio for muster-out. The regiment performed guard, picket and escort

the regiment had a skirmish with McNeil's battalion near Moorfield.
