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-second Indiana Infantry. — Col., Samuel C. Vance; Lieut. -Col., Samuel A. Cramer; Maj., Hervey Bates, Jr. This regiment was organized at Indianapolis May 17, 1864. Seven companies of the regiment were raised in Indianapolis and one each at Shelbyville, Franklin and Danville. It was mustered in May 18, and left the state at once, going to Tennessee. It was mustered out in Aug., 1864. Its total strength was 948. Loss by death, 5.
