Regimental History
Fourth Infantry. (Three Months' Service.) Col., Lorin Andrews; Lieut.-Col., James Cantwell ; Maj., James H. Godman. This regiment was organized at Camp Jackson from April 18 to 25, 1861. It was composed of two companies from Mount Vernon, two from Delaware, two from Kenton, two from Marion, one from Canton and one from Wooster. On May 2, the regiment moved to Camp Dennison, and two days later was mustered into the U. S. service. Immediately came the president's call for 300,000 troops for three years, and a majority of the regiment signified their intention to enter the three years' service. The regiment was mustered out at Columbus on its expiration of term of service, from Aug. 18 to 24, 1861.
