Regimental History
Fifth Infantry. (Three Months' Service.) Col., Samuel H. Dunning; Lieut. -Col., John H. Patrick; Maj., Charles L. Long. This regiment was organized at Camp Harrison, April 20, 1861, and was recruited principally from young men who resided in Cincinnati and vicinity. It was sent to Camp Dennison on April 23, and was mustered into service from April 29 to May 9. Before the equipment was complete the call for 300,000 troops to serve for three years was issued by the president, and the regiment responded immediately to this call, nearly the entire membership signifying their willingness to enter the new organization, the enrollment of which took place between June 15 and 21. Those who did not enlist were mustered out on expiration of term of service from Aug. 24 to Sept. 5, 1861.
