|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.
