Regimental History
Sixtieth Infantry. (One Year's Service.) Col., William H. Trimble; Lieut.-Col, Noah H. Hixon; Maj., Joseph K. Marley. This regiment was organized at Gallipolis, Feb. 25 to 28, 1862, to serve for one year. In April it was sent to the field and joined Gen. Fremont's forces at New creek, W. Va. It participated in the brisk engagement near Strasburg, where it behaved like a veteran regiment and won reputation. It was highly complimented on the field for its firmness and coolness under fire at Cross Keys, in which engagement it lost severely. Its last service was in the unfortunate affair at Harper's Ferry, where, as a consequence of the surrender of the place, the entire membership of the 60th became prisoners of war. They were paroled, and on Nov. 10, 1862, were mustered out of service.
