This regiment was organized in Milwaukee in May and June, 1864, being the third and last of the 100-day regiments sent from the state. It had no colonel, its numbers being insufficient. It left the state on June 15 for Memphis, where it participated in the fight with Forrest's cavalry, being posted with the 30th in the rear of the 40th. In common with those regiments it suffered much from disease. It was mustered out at Camp Washburn in September. Its original strength was 578. Loss by death, 6; desertion, 2; mustered out, 570.
