notes.--Organized at Madison, Ind., on the 15th of July, 1861, leaving the State in the following month. Joining Fremont's army at St. Louis, it marched to the relief of Lexington. While on the way to that place the Union troops fired into each other by mistake, in which affair Major Gordon Tanner, of the Twenty-second, was mortally wounded. Colonel Davis being promoted Brigadier, the regiment was attached to his division with which it marched, in January, 1862, on Curtis's expedition against Price, and thence to the battle of Pea Ridge; its casualties in that engagement were 9 killed, and 33 wounded, including Lieutenant-Colonel John A. Hendricks, who fell, mortally wounded. The regiment then joined the army at the Siege of Corinth, after which it was stationed in Northern Mississippi until August, 1862, when it marched with Buell on the Kentucky campaign. At the battle of Chaplin Hills, Ky., October 8, 1862, the regiment was in Mitchell's (R. B.) Division; Colonel Gooding commanded the brigade, and Lieutenant-Colonel Keith the regiment. Keith fell dead, at the head of his men, while waving his sword and cheering on the line. The casualties in the regiment were 49 killed, 87 wounded, and 33 missing, out of 303 engaged. Six of the officers lost their lives in that battle. The loss at Stone's River was 7 killed, 39 wounded, and 18 missing. The Twenty-second was then in Post's (1st) Brigade, Davis's (1st) Division, McCook's Corps. The regiment was detailed as rear-guard at Chickamauga, and so was absent at that battle; but it participated, two months later, in the storming of Missionary Ridge,--then in Sheridan's (2d) Division, Fourth Corps. It served next in Davis's (2d) Division, Fourteenth Corps.
