"Jacob T. Goin" was recruited September 19, 1863 for service in the Thirty-ninth Indiana Infantry Regiment, Company B. "Jonas B. Goin," his first cousin, had been recruited into the same organization nine days earlier.  At the beginning of the Civil War, William Neal, a lawyer of adjoining Hamilton County, Indiana organized the infantry company, and it was assigned to the Thirty-Eighth Indiana Infantry Regiment. On October 15, 1863 the regiment was reorganized as the Eighth Indiana Cavalry Regiment, according to "Report of the Adjutant General's Office Indiana," Volume 2.

 

The report continued:

 

"In December the regiment was placed on courier duty between Chattanooga and Ringold, and on the 22d of February, 1864, it reenlisted as a Veteran organization. In April the regiment visited Indiana on Veteran furlough, and on returning to the field participated in the Rousseau raid into Alabama. 

 

One battalion of the regiment fought and routed the enemy at Chehaw Bridge, Alabama.  It took part in the McCook raid around Atlanta, and was the only regiment that preserved its organization and made a charge on the enemy, routing him and opening the way for the escape of 1,200 men of McCook's command.

 

The regiment was next engaged in the Kilpatrick raid in Georgia, and at the Battle of Lovejoy Station led the charge of the left wing, riding over Ross' division of rebel cavalry, capturing all of his artillery and four battle flags.  It was subsequently engaged in the Battles of Jonesboro and Flint River, and in several skirmishes that followed the capture of Atlanta.

 

In the campaign against Savannah and through the Carolinas, it marched with Kilpatrick's command to Savannah and thence to Goldsboro.  In this campaign it participated in the battles and skirmishes at Waynesboro, Buckhead, Church, Browne's Cross Roads, Reynolds' Farm, Aiken, Bentonville, Averysboro and Raleigh.  In the engagement at Averysboro this regiment, under Col. Jones, charged and routed Rhett's South Carolina brigade of infantry, which outnumbered it ten to one. The Eighth Cavalry lost 14 killed and 59nine wounded.

 

A detachment of the regiment, left behind in Tennessee, fought Wheeler at Franklin and at several other places, and, also, had a severe engagement with Forrest at Pulaski, Tennessee.

 

After the occupation of a portion of North Carolina by Sherman's army, and just before the negotiations were opened between Johnson and Sherman, the Eighth Cavalry whipped Hampton's entire force at Morrisville, and thus had the honor of fighting the last battle with the enemy in that State.  The regiment remained on duty in North Carolina until July 20, 1865, when it was mustered out of service, and soon after started for home.

 

Reaching Indianapolis during the last week of July, it was present at a public reception given to returned troops on the Capitol grounds on the 31st of July, at which speeches were made by Lt. Gov. Conrad Baker and Gen. Hovey, and in a few days afterward, the regiment was finally discharged.
