Ball; Lieut.-Col., James E. Dougherty; Maj., Benjamin A. Whiteleather.
This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 20, 1864, to serve for
100 days. It was composed of the 45th regiment, Ohio National Guard,
from Stark county, and one company of the 40th battalion, from Brown
county. Cos. A, C, F and K were assigned to duty at Tod Barracks, near
Columbus, and the remaining companies were assigned to duty at Camp
Chase, where they remained until they were ordered into Kentucky, to
assist in repelling John Morgan. Several of the companies were placed on
duty in and around Covington and the remainder of the regiment moved
down the river to Carrollton. After remaining at Carrollton a few days
the companies returned to Covington and performed post duty, until
mustered out on Sept. 4, 1864.
