The 47th Indiana was raised at Anderson and Indianapolis and mustered in December 1861. Assigned to the Army of the Ohio, the regiment participated in the early operations against Island No. 10 before transferring to Arkansas for the Yazoo expedition. Reassigned to the 13th Corps, the Hoosiers joined in the campaign against Vicksburg fighting at Port Hudson and Champion’s Hill and in subsequent siege operations including both May assaults. The regiment was then ordered to New Orleans where it remained stationed for nearly a year, involved in periodic expeditions into the interior culminating in the Red River campaign and the battle of Sabine Crossroads on April 8, 1864. The 47th was engaged in final operations against the Mobile defenses and remained on occupation duty at New Orleans and Shreveport until mustering out in October 1865, having sustained 82 battle casualties.
