122nd Indiana Infantry
in the American Civil War

Regimental History
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.
