Regimental History
One Hundred and Thirty-ninth Infantry. Col., Peter Davidson; Lieut.-Col., Horace H. Willsie; Maj., Solomon Z. Roth. This regiment was mustered into the U. S. service as a 100-day regiment at Peoria on June 1, 1864, and on June 8 it moved for St. Louis by steamboat, arriving there on the 10th, thence to Columbus, Ky., where it remained about a week, when it was moved to Cairo as a garrison for that place. After its term of enlistment had expired it went to Missouri, and after having driven Gen. Price to a remote part of the state, was moved to Peoria, Ill., where it was mustered out on Oct. 25, 1864, having been in the service nearly five months.
