|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
