This regiment was organized at Camp Chase from Aug. 18 to Sept. 21, 1864, to serve for one year. It was ordered to Nashville, Tenn., and to report to Gen. W. T. Sherman. It reached Nashville on Sept. 26 and was immediately ordered to proceed to Murfreesboro, where it remained until Oct. 27, when it was ordered to report to the commanding officer at Decatur, Ala. It was then moved to the mouth of Elk river, leaving on the way four companies as a garrison for Athens, Ala. The regiment soon returned to Decatur, where it remained until Nov. 26, when the town was evacuated. It then returned to Murfreesboro, where it remained during the siege and participated in the battle of Overall's creek. On Dec. 7 it was engaged in the battle of "The Cedars," and on Jan. 17 moved down the Tennessee and up the Ohio river to Cincinnati. It was then ordered to Washington, D.
