     On the 20th of December, 1864, a call was made for eleven regiments of infantry to serve for one year, and recruiting rendevous were established at the headquarters of each of the District Provost Marshals, from which recruits were forwarded to the general rendevous at Indianapolis.  Chief recruiting officers were, also, appointed in each District whose exertions materially aided the recruitment of the regiments.  Subsequently five additional regiments for the same arm and term of service were called for, to be recruited in the same manner.  Under these calls the following organization was raised, mustered into service and sent to the field:
