D. Hoge. This regiment was organized at Anna and was mustered into the
U. S. service on Sept. 11, 1862. It was recruited from the counties of
Jefferson, Washington, Wayne, Hamilton, Saline, Franklin, Perry and
Williamson. On Sept. 23 it was ordered to Louisville, Ky., and there was
assigned to the 19th brigade. The first skirmish that it was engaged in
was near Danville, where the Confederates were driven through and beyond
the town. Another skirmish occurred near Mt. Vernon in October and in
December a considerable skirmish was had at Lavergne, Tenn. It
participated in the battle of Stone's river and lost heavily, displaying
"that fearless courage one admires in veterans." On April 2, 1863, the
regiment engaged in the attack on the Confederates at Woodbury, and at
daylight on the following day, captured a picket post consisting of 30
mounted Confederates, with their horses. In May, 1863, the regiment
being much reduced because of losses in battles, sickness and
discharges, it was consolidated into four companies.
