Historical Note

The 27th Indiana Regiment was organized at Indianapolis on August 30, 1861, and mustered into service for three years on September 12, 1861. Three days later, the 27th went to Washington, D.C. In October, the regiment was transferred to Banks’ Army of the Shenandoah. They spent the winter at Camp Halleck near Frederick City, Maryland. They marched into Winchester, Virginia on March 9, 1862, after the Confederate army evacuated the town. On May 23, they fought the Battle of Front Royal against the Stonewall Brigade.

Other battles in which the regiment participated were: Cedar Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Resaca, and Atlanta. They marched to the sea through Georgia and the Carolinas with General William T. Sherman. During this famous march, they reached the end of their 3-year service, when they could muster out. The men who wanted to continue serving were transferred to the 33rd Regiment, and served until July 21, 1865, when the 33rd was mustered out at Louisville, Kentucky.

The 27th Indiana Regiment formed a veterans’ organization, called the Survivors Association, which met until, at least, 1926.
