137th Indiana Infantry      
Company B
Richard M. McCaslin - Private   
Richard M McCasland was 32-years old when he enrolled as a private in Company B, 137th Regiment, Indiana Infantry (100 days, 1864) on 3 May 1864 at North Vernon, Vernon Township, Jennings, Indiana. This regiment was organized at Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana, and mustered in May 26, 1864. It was ordered to Tennessee and assigned to duty as Railroad Guard in Tennessee and Alabama, Department of the Cumberland, until September 1864. The regiment was mustered out 21 September 1864 at Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana. Richard was owed $2.88 for his 100 days pay and owed the Army 10 cents for 'ordinance'.

Richard 'while in line of duty at Tullahoma Tennessee on or about July 8th 1864 contracted a severe cold while lying in line of battle during a severe rain storm. And that said cold continued until it resulted in disease of lungs.' This disease of the lungs, probably TB, was the cause of his death on 30 Dec 1867.
