was organized at Georgetown, each man furnishing his own horse and horse

Georgetown, for three years. On the 10th it left for Camp Chase, where
it remained until Aug. 19, when it was ordered to Missouri. On March 1,
1862, it was taken into St. Louis, placed on duty at Gen. Halleck's
headquarters, and acted as his escort until he was transferred to
Washington. The company was then engaged in miscellaneous service until
July 16, 1864, when the original members were mustered out at
Cincinnati, Ohio, by reason of expiration of term of service. The
recruits, about 50 in number, were left at Gen. McPherson's headquarters
and in Aug. and Sept., 1864, John L. King, who had been a sergeant in
the original organization, recruited the company to the maximum number
and was commissioned captain. This company participated in the march to
the sea, in the campaign in the Carolinas, and was present at the grand
review in Washington, D. C, where it was mustered out on May 28, 1865.
