|Fifth Infantry. — (Three Months' Service.) Col., Samuel
H. Dunning; Lieut. -Col., John H. Patrick; Maj., Charles L. Long. This
regiment was organized at Camp Harrison, April 20, 1861, and was
recruited principally from young men who resided in Cincinnati and
vicinity. It was sent to Camp Dennison on April 23, and was mustered
into service from April 29 to May 9. Before the equipment was complete
the call for 300,000 troops to serve for three years was issued by the
president, and the regiment responded immediately to this call, nearly
the entire membership signifying their willingness to enter the new
organization, the enrollment of which took place between June 15 and 21.
Those who did not enlist were mustered out on expiration of term of
service from Aug. 24 to Sept. 5, 1861.
