History

Organized for three months service June 7, 1862, under Colonel Wm. Lawrence, it at once took the field in the vicinity of Cumberland, Md., where it sent out detachments against guerrilla bands. In September it moved to New Creek, where it occupied a fort at that point. The Regiment then returned to Camp Chase, Ohio, where it was mustered out, having served a month over its term of service.
