104th IISFANTRY

formed a part of First Brigade, Fourteenth Army Corps, in which it remained
until mustered out.

On the 25th of Nov. '63, was in the battle of Missionary Ridge, capturing
a number of prisoners. The regiment moved to Ringgold May 3rd, to prepare
for the campaign a])out to commence against Atlanta. The regiment partici-
pated in many skirmishes up to the 5th of June, when they moved in front of
Kenesaw Mountain, where it was engaged skirmishing almost continously
until the 3rd of July, when the enemy left the Mountain. On the 20th July
the 104th crossed Peach Tree Creek, and at 4 p.m. were attacked by the
enemy, when the regiment distinguished itself for unsurpassed bravery,
losing in killed and wounded 50 officers and men.

The campaign, from May 7, when the regiment left Ringgold, to Sep. 6,
when it left Jonesboro, was very severe, skirmishing almost continually,
never halting for the night without throwing up w"orks for defence. The loss
in these engagements being very heavy, in killed and woundeii, and at Peach
Tree Creek the right of the regiment was almost annihilated, but the brave
boys never faltered.

On the 16th of Nov. the 104th started on that famous " march to the sea,"
taking possession of Savannah on the 21st Dec. The regiment had its share of
the hardships, marches, ect., as also the fine foraging produced by that beauti-
ful country through which they passed.

The Regiment was engaged in the battles of Hartsville, Chickamauga,
Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Peach Tree Creek, Utoy Creek,
Jonesboro and Bentonville. They were mustered out June 7th, and on the
8th left for Chicago where they received their final discharge.

108tli INFANTKY

"Was organized at Camp Peoria, and mustered into the service of the United
States, Auf?. 28tli, 1862. The lirst cotnpany was recruited at Pekin, by Charles
Turner. Oct. Gth, the refi;'t. left Covington, Ky. arriving on the 8th. On the
17th, marched into the interior of the State, following the retreating enemy.
They passed through Falmouth, Cynthiana, Paris and Lexington to Nicholas-
ville, where they went into camp Nov. 1st, and remained until the 14th, when
they started for Louisville, arrived on the 19th, and left the 21st for Memphis,
Tenn., where it went into camp near the city on the 26th. On the 20th of Dec.
they went on hoard the "City of Alton," and proceeded with the expedition,
under Gen. W. T. Sherman against Vicksburg. They ])roceeded down the
river to the mouth of the Yazoo, and up that river to Johnson's Landing, near
Chickasaw Blutt". On the 2i)th they moved upon the enemy, who was found
strongly fortified upon the bluffs. It was here the 108th first met the enemy.

They withdrew from the attack on Vicksl)urg Jan. 1st and returned down
the Yazoo river and up the White river, antl through a cut-off into the
Arkansas, to Arkansas Post, where on the 11th they bore an active part in
that most brilliant and successful engagement. There was 13 wounded. On
the 17th of Jan., 1863, they moved down stream to Young's Point, La., where
they went into camp the 24th.

The long confinement on the transports, and want of pure air and sani-
tary conveniences during this expedition, cost the regiment more lives than
all other causes during its term of service. One officer, Philo. W. Hill, 1st
Lieut. Co. A. and 134 i^rivates died during the months of February and
March, '64.
