Brief History

Organized at Michigan City, Indiana, December 15, 1863, to March 7, 1864. At surrender of Johnston and his army. Duty at Goldsboro and Raleigh till April, 1866. Mustered out April 10, 1866.[1]

  • 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.

The list of companies with their counties and their rosters are on the 128th Regimen, Indiana Infantry on CIVIL WAR INDEX web site. (accessed 29 Jan 2011)
