|One Hundred and Sixth Infantry. — Col., George B.
Wright; Lieut. - Col., Gustavus Tafel; Maj., Lauritz Barentzen. This
regiment, with the exception of Cos. I and K, was organized at Camp
Dennison from Aug. 26 to Oct. 25, 1862, to serve for three years. Cos. I
and K were organized at Camp Dennison, in Sept. and Oct., 1864, to serve
for one year. On Sept. 4, 1862, the regiment was ordered to Covington,
Ky., to aid in repelling Confederate forces and subsequently
participated in several expeditions against Gen. John Morgan. The
regiment reached Hartsville, Tenn., on Nov. 28, and on Dec. 7 had an
engagement with the enemy which resulted in the loss of quite a number
of men killed, wounded and missing. From this time forward the regiment
did valuable service in guarding railroads and in numerous expeditions
against guerrillas and bush-whackers in Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama.
It was mustered out of service on June 29, 1865, in accordance with
orders from the war department.
