Battles of the 27th Indiana Volunteer Infantry

This page is under construction. I am currently working on Antietam. If the Link is active, then a battle is available.


This page contains the battles that 27th Indiana fought in both Eastern and Western Theaters. The 27th Indiana was somewhat unique to have participated in the pivotal battles in both theaters of the war. Interestingly, they faced some of the same Confederate regiments in both theaters, as General John Bell Hood's troops were transferred to the Western theater after September, 1863. General George H. Thomas often used the experienced XX Corps to attack or plug gaps. Hood's Corps often led Confederate attacks. As a consequence, the Hoosiers faced Hood's rebels on several occasions during the Atlanta Campaign. The battles below contain the actual battle reports from the 27th Indiana as a means to tell the story. There are also maps and both period and modern photos. Enjoy.
