Regimental History
Minute Men. — Word being received at Indianapolis on the evening of July 8, 1863, that a force of 6,000 cavalry under Morgan had crossed the Ohio river near Mauckport and was moving on Corydon, a call was issued for citizens to organize for defense. Within 48 hours 65,000 men had tendered their services. From this number regiments 102 to 114 inclusive, and one battalion were organized, the battalion being assigned to the 107th.

One Hundred and Fifth Indiana Infantry. — Col., Kline G. Shryock; Lieut. - Col., John N. Hartley; Maj., Robert E. Smith. This regiment was composed of seven companies of the Legion and three of minute men, Henry county furnishing two, Randolph two, and one each from Union, Putnam, Hancock, Wayne, Clinton and Madison counties. The regiment was organized July 12, 1863, and left at once for Lawrenceburg. It disembarked at Morris station, marched the following morning for Sunman's station and then to Van Wedden's station, where the raiders had been, and then pursued Morgan's forces to near Harrison, Ohio. A report that Morgan was returning to capture Lawrenceburg brought the regiment out to check him, and while getting into position, an indiscriminate firing took place among the men, resulting in 5 being killed and 18 wounded. The regiment was mustered out at Indianapolis, July 18, 1863.
