The 121st regiment was organized during the fall and winter of 1863-1864, and was mustered in on March 1, 1864. They left the state May 3 for Nashville, Tenn., then went to Pulaski, where they remained until November 23, participating in the movements against Forrest and Wheeler. A portion of the regiment, under command of Major Lilly, was in an engagement at Sulphur Branch trestle, Alabama, losing 196 in killed, wounded and missing. After Hood's defeat at Nashville, the regiment was in action at Franklin with Forrest's cavalry, losing 26 in killed, wounded and captured, and then went into camp at Gravelly springs, Alabama, until February 6, 1865, when it was ordered to New Orleans. Here it was detached, turned over its horses, and on March 25, arrived at Vicksburg, where it was again mounted and assigned to garrison duty in the interior of the state. It returned to Vicksburg May 22, and was mustered out on August 28, 1865. On April 26, 1865, the regiment lost 55 men--paroled prisoners of war--to an explosion on the steamer Sultana. Those who escaped the disaster reached Indianapolis early in May and were mustered out while under parole.
