Ninth Infantry. (Three Months' Service.) Col., Robert L. McCook; Lieut.-Col., Charles Sondershoff; Maj., Frank Linke. This organization was composed of patriotic German Americans of the city of Cincinnati. The ten companies composing the regiment were enrolled April 22, 1861, and mustered into the U. S. service on May 8, at Camp Harrison, for three months. On May 18 it was ordered to Camp Dennison to be equipped and prepared for active service. Here they learned of the president's call for volunteers to serve for three years and immediately nearly the entire membership agreed to enlist for that period, the enrolling taking place on May 27, the 9th being the first three years organization from the state of Ohio.
