Regimental History
Eighty-seventh Infantry. Col., Henry B. Banning; Lieut.-Col., John Faskin : Maj., Samuel L. Leffingwell. This regiment was organized at Camp Chase, June 10, 1862, to serve for three months. It was first sent to Baltimore, Md., and after some weeks there was stationed at Harper's Ferry, where it was unfortunate enough to be included in the surrender of the Federal forces. However, the men were released from their paroles, and the regiment was sent home, where it was mustered out from Oct. 1 to 4, 1862, by reason of expiration of term of service.
