Regimental History
Sixth Infantry. (Three Months' Service.) Col., William K. Bosley; Lieut.-Col., Eliphalet Loring; Maj., Alexander C. Christopher. This regiment was principally recruited from an independent military organization of the city of Cincinnati, known as the Guthrie Gray Battalion. It was enrolled on April 20, 1861, and mustered into the U. S. service April 27, at Camp Harrison, except Cos. H and K. they being mustered May 10 and 12, respectively. Immediately after muster-in the regiment was transferred to Camp Dennison, to be equipped and placed in readiness for the field, but before the work was completed a call was issued by the president for 300,000 men for three years, and a majority of the membership signifying their intention to enter that service, they were enrolled in such from June 6 to 18, 1861. Those who did not enlist for three years were mustered out with the several companies Aug. 21, 1861, at Cincinnati.
