Brief History

Organized at Gosport and Indianapolis, Ind., February 11, 1862. At Richmond, Virginia, April 29-May 19. Grand Review May 24. Moved to Louisville, Kentucky, June, and there mustered out July 17, 1865.

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
