Regimental History
Third Infantry. (Three Months' Service.) Col., Isaac H. Marrow; Lieut. -Col., John Beatty; Maj., J. Warren Keifer. This regiment was organized at Camp Jackson, near Columbus, April 21, 1861, in response to the call of the president for volunteers to serve for three months. It was mustered into service, April 27, 1861. On April 28 a part of the regiment was sent to Camp Dennison to prepare a suitable camping place for the regiment, where it was joined by the remainder two days later, and throughout the month of May was subjected to thorough discipline and drill. Before orders for the field were received volunters for three years were called for and the regiment was reenlisted with alacrity, so that on June 12, 1861, it was reorganized and on June 20 was mustered into service for three years. Those of the three months organization who did not enlist for three years were mustered out on Aug. 22, 1861. The regiment, by its thorough drill and discipline during its three months' organization, was enabled at once to enter into active service under its three years' organization.
