Whitley County Volunteers
A Virtual Cemetery created by: David D
Description: On April 21, 1861, sixty-eight men responded to President Lincoln's call for volunteers to supress the rebellion by "southrons." They called themselves the Whitley County Volunteers and went to Indianapolis to be mustered in. Because they were too few in number to form a full company several men who enlisted at Plymouth, Indiana, were added to them and all were then mustered in as Co. E of the 17th Indiana Infantry. After fighting on foot in western Virginia, central kentucky, and Middle Tennessee their Colonel, John Wilder of Greensburg, Indiana, decided they lacked mobility and good weapons, so he convinced authorities to allow his men to acquire horses and Spencer's 7-shot repeating rifles. This made them the most feared warriors in the western theater of the war.
