in the American Civil War
|One Hundred and Twenty-second Indiana Infantry. The call of Sept.
14, 1863, for the formation of four regiments of cavalry and seven regiments of infantry
led to volunteering for five regiments of cavalry and six of infantry, and the war
department accepted the additional cavalry in place of the infantry. The companies raised
for the 122nd regiment, in the 3d Congressional district, were consolidated with the 120th
directed to be raised in the 1st Congressional district, the numerical designation of
122nd being dropped.
