Regimental History
Williams' Independent Battery. Capt., William S. Williams; First Lieut., Daniel Lenker. This battery was organized at Canton on June 25, 1861, marched thence to Camp Chase, Columbus, where it was mustered into service on June 28, and on the same day was ordered into western Virginia, where it was attached to Gen. J. D. Cox's brigade. On July 2 it was consolidated with Capt. Cotter's battery. It served an additional three months, the exigencies of the service requiring it to remain until relieved by other batteries. It participated in all the actions and marches until Oct. 19, when it was ordered to report to Columbus, to be there mustered out of the U. S. service, which was done on Nov. 6.
