Regimental History Sixty-fifth Infantry INDIANA (3-YEARS)

Sixty-fifth Infantry. Cols., John W. Foster, Thomas Johnson, John W. Hammond, Lieut.-Cols., Thomas Johnson, Walter G. Hodge, John W. Hammond, Edward A. Baker, Majs., Thomas G. Brown, Edward A. Baker, Saunders R. Hornbrook.

This regiment was organized at Princeton in the summer of 1862. Nine companies were mustered in Aug. 18 and 20 and proceeded at once to Henderson, Ky., going into camp there to protect the place from guerrillas.

They moved to Ashbysburg, and attacked Adam Johnson's Confederate regiment, taking possession of Madisonville the next morning. Co. K was mustered in Sept. 10 and joined the regiment, the companies being scattered to different points in Kentucky, west of the Nashville railroad, on duty until Aug. 18, 1863, when they came together at Glasgow.

The regiment had been mounted in April and joined Graham's cavalry brigade. While on detached duty, Co. D was engaged in a skirmish near Vanderburg, and Co. E was in a skirmish at Dixon.

The brigade was the first Union troops to enter Knoxville, reaching there Sept. 1. The regiment marched up the valley, a few days later, took possession of a captured train of cars, and captured another train and two locomotives. With its brigade it was engaged near Zollicoffer and was in a severe fight at Blountsville.

It was also in actions at Rheatown, Bristol and Waker's Ford, where it fought all day against heavy odds. Co. K was at Mulberry Gap, where its 45 men made a night attack on a regiment of the enemy, driving it from its position. The regiment was in the battle at Bean's Station, on the following day at Powder Spring Gap, and the same day at Skaggs's Mill.

It was in a fight at Dandridge on Jan. 17, 1864. The regiment was dismounted the following April and assigned to the 2nd brigade, 3d division, 23d corps, joining Sherman's army for the Atlanta campaign on April 30. It was engaged in all the battles and skirmishes of that campaign, commencing at Resaca, then joined in the pursuit of Hood into Alabama and Tennessee, fought at Columbia and Franklin, took a conspicuous part at Nashville, and moved in pursuit of Hood as far as the Tennessee river.

It was transferred to Alexandria, Va., in Jan. 1865; moved thence to the vicinity of Fort Fisher near Wilmington, N. C., bore the brunt of the attack on Fort Anderson, and was conspicuous in the skirmish at Town Creek. It then moved to Greensboro, where it was mustered out June 22, 1865.

Its original strength was 942; gain by recruits, 228; total, 1,170. Loss by death, 236; desertion, 59, unaccounted for, 8.
