Regimental History

One Hundred Days' Volunteers. — Indiana's quota of 100 days' troops was eight regiments, numbering consecutively from the 132nd to the 139th, inclusive. They were used largely for guard duty and in garrisoning necessary points, relieving veteran troops for active field work in the important campaigns of 1864. These troops were to perform such duty as might be required of them in any state, and were to be armed, subsisted, clothed and paid by the United States. Upon reaching Nashville they were assigned to railroad guard duty along the lines of the Nashville & Chattanooga, Tennessee & Alabama, and Memphis & Charleston railroads. They were kept constantly engaged in this work until the latter part of Aug., 1864, serving beyond the time for which they had enlisted, keeping Sherman's lines of communication open for the transportation of supplies to his army.

One Hundred and Thirty-fourth Indiana Infantry. — Col., James Gavin; Lieut. - Col., George W. H. Riley; Maj., Wilson Morrow. This regiment was organized at Indianapolis in May, 1864. Seven companies were recruited in the 4th and three in the 5th Congressional district. It was mustered in May 25 and left the state at once for Tennessee. It was mustered out in Aug., 1864. Strength, 950. Loss by death, 19.
