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 Thirteenth Indiana Infantry. — Col., George W. Burge; Lieut. -Col., Jacob Covert; Maj., Cutter S. Dobbins. This regiment was organized July 10, 1863, with nine companies, aggregating 526 men rank and file. It was composed of minute men, three companies coming from Lawrence county, three from Daviess, and one each from Washington, Martin and Monroe. It was assigned to Gen. Hughes' brigade and moved from Mitchell to North Vernon, which place was reached in time to assist in holding it against Morgan. It then marched to Sunman's station, and proceeded from there to Indianapolis, where it was mustered out July 16, 1863.
