Regimental History
One Hundred and Seventy-eighth Infantry. Col., Joab A. Stafford; Lieut.-Col., Aaron C. Johnson; Maj., John C. Hamilton. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, Sept. 26, 1864, to serve for one year, and was at once despatched by rail and river to Nashville, with orders to report to Maj. -Gen. George H. Thomas for duty. It remained in Nashville some two weeks, performing guard duty, when it was sent to Tullahoma, Tenn., where it composed part of the post command. The post at Tullahoma was evacuated in the winter of 1864 and the regiment was sent to Murfreesboro, where it remained during the siege. After the defeat of Gen. Hood's army at Nashville the regiment was ordered to North Carolina. It landed at Morehead City with the 23d corps and a few days thereafter participated in a skirmish with the enemy at Wise's Forks. After the surrender of Johnston's army the regiment was ordered to Charlotte, N. C, where it performed garrison duty, until mustered out on June 29, 1865, in accordance with orders from the war department.
