One Hundred and Fifty-third Infantry. Col., Israel Stough; Lieut.- Col., Marcellus A. Leeds; Maj., Zedekiah South. This regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, May 10, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 41st regiment, Ohio National Guard, from Clermont county, and a part of the 35th regiment, from Clarke county. It immediately started for Harper's Ferry, W. Va., and the greater part of May and June was consumed by the regiment in performing guard duty at Harper's Ferry and along the line of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. In the latter part of June it was ordered to join Gen. Butler's forces at Bermuda Hundred and hold itself subject to his orders. A detachment of the regiment was engaged with the enemy at Hammack's mills, North river, W. Va., on July 3, and lost several officers and men killed and wounded. It was mustered out on Sept. 9, 1864.
