Organ. The companies forming this regiment were enlisted about the first
of May, 1864, and went into camp at Centralia, but were not mustered
into the U. S. service until the first day of June, following, its term
being 100 days. Shortly after muster it received marching orders and was
sent by rail to Cairo, Ill., and there placed on a boat, with Fort
Pillow as its probable destination. When it arrived at Columbus, Ky.,
word was received that Gen. Forrest was making a feint on Fort Pillow
but would attack Columbus and the regiment was consequently landed
there, where it remained doing garrison duty during the months of June,
July, August and September. It was mustered out Oct. 22, 1864.
