Regimental History
One Hundred and Tenth Infantry. Col., Thomas S. Casey; Lieut.-Col., Munroe C. Crawford; Majs., Daniel Mooneyham, Marion 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.
