Regimental History
Trumbull Guards, Infantry. Capt., Charles W. Smith; First Lieut., Thomas P. Gilman; Second Lieut., Josiah D. Freer. This independent company was an organization formed in Trumbull county to perform duty within the state. It was enrolled at Warren during the months of May and June, 1862, and was mustered into the U. S. service on Nov. 9, at Gallipolis, for a period of three years. It was mustered out on July 1, 1865, at Gallipolis. The company was principally engaged in guard duty at Gallipolis and points along the Ohio river as occasion required. It was also sent on expeditions into West Virginia, in one of which it recaptured Point Pleasant from the enemy. It also participated in the pursuit of Gen. John Morgan on his raid through Ohio, and assisted in capturing many of his raiders.
