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 Ninth Indiana Infantry. — Col., John R. Mahan : Lieut. - Col., James L. Angell ; Maj., McHenry Brooks. This regiment was organized July 10, 1863, with ten companies of minute men. Two of these were volunteers from Coles county, Ill., who offered their services and were accepted by the government. Two were from Laporte county, Ind., two from Hamilton, two from Miami, one from Randolph, and one other, making an aggregate of 709 men rank and file. The regiment left Indianapolis for Hamilton, Ohio, on the 13th, going thence to Cincinnati. The enemy having passed out of the state, the regiment returned to Indianapolis and was mustered out July 17, 1863.
