     In the latter part of July, 1862, the Eighty-seventh received orders of report to Colonel Miles at Harper's Ferry.  It was stationed on Boliver Heights, and subjected to rigid drill.  It remained there until the siege of the Ferry by "Stonewall" Jackson, and at the surrender was included with the National forces.  The various companies were subsequently released from their paroles, and were mustered out at Delaware, Ohio, on the twentieth of September, 1862.
     The muster out roll fails to detail the casualties of company B.
