TORY OF THE REGIMENT WHILE IN SERVICE-COLONEL J.

W. VANCE-MUSTER OUT.

UPON the call of the President for troops in the summer of 1862, four companies were immediately raised in Knox county. The two first completed went into the Ninety-sixth Ohio, and the other two into the One Hundred and Twenty-first. Joseph W. Vance, a young and promising lawyer of Mt Vernon, who had,-been loyal and active in all that was being done to sustain the Government, was commissioned to form a regiment in the Eighth Congressional district. This regiment rendezvoused at Camp Delaware, became the Ninety-sixth, and the two companies from Mt. Vernon were, through the influence probably of Colonel Vance, assigned positions at the head of the regiment, and became companies A and B.

The field and line officers of this regiment were largely composed of those who had seen service in other regiments. Colonel Vance was without military knowledge, but courageous and able; Lieutenant Colonel A. H: Brown had seen service in Mexico, and had also been a captain in the Fourth Ohio, both in the three months' and three years' service. The major, Charles H. McElroy, had been a captain in the Twentieth Ohio.

The officers of company A upon its first organization were Captain William Mitchell, First Lieutenant William Young, Second Lieutenant George H. Terry. Captain Mitchell had been for several years superintendent and manager of the public schools of Mt. Vernon.

The officers of company B upon its first organization were Captain Joseph Leonard, First Lieutenant Henry P. Bennett, Second Lieutenant William S. Wing.

These two companies bade adieu to their friends and left for Camp Delaware early in August, 1862, and on the twenty-ninth of the same month the Ninety-sixth regiment was organized It numbered one thousand and fourteen men, rank and file.
