Regimental History
One Hundred and Eightieth Infantry. Col., Willard Warner ; Lieut.-Cols., Hiram McKay, John T. Wood. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase in Sept. and Oct., 1864, to serve for one year, and left camp on Oct. 15 for Nashville, Tenn. From Nashville it was ordered to Decherd, Tenn., where it remained for the most part of three months, being used as guard to the Nashville & Chattanooga railroad. On Jan. 6, 1865, it was ordered to Nashville and after remaining there a few days was ordered to guard a train of wagons bound for Eastport, Miss. It went as far as Columbia, where it was met by an order to return to Nashville, and from there was ordered to Washington, D. C. It reached Washington on Jan. 31 and was placed in Camp Stoneman near that city. After remaining about three weeks in camp it was ordered to Fort Fisher. On reaching the mouth of Cape Fear river the fall of Fort Fisher was announced, rendering its services unnecessary, and it was then taken to New Berne, where it joined a force, under Gen. J. D. Cox to open railway communications with Goldsboro and Gen. Sherman's army. At Kinston, N. C, the regiment had an engagement with the forces under Gens. Bragg and Hoke, in which it lost a number killed and wounded. From Kinston the regiment marched to Goldsboro, which place it reached on March 21. It remained here until April 9 and then marched with Sherman's army to Raleigh, N. C, where it performed garrison duty until the surrender of Johnston's army. The regiment then moved to Greensboro and from there to Charlotte, where it remained as the city garrison until July 12, 1865, when it was mustered out in accordance with orders from the war department.
