Brief History[edit | edit source]

Organized at Indianapolis, Indiana, and mustered in September 19, 1862. Ordered to Chattanooga, Tennessee, till June, 1865. Mustered out June 28, 1865.[1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

The Battery with their counties and their rosters are on the 20th Indiana Light Battery, on CIVIL WAR INDEX web site. (accessed 05 Feb 2011 2011)
