|Ninth and Tenth Independent Companies Sharpshooters. —
These independent companies were organized at Cleveland, in the months
of Feb. and March, 1864. The 9th was mustered into the U. S. service on
Feb. 26, and the 10th on April 1, at Cleveland. They rendezvoused at
Camp Taylor, and were temporarily attached to the 60th Ohio infantry, a
three years' regiment then composed of six companies. They left Camp
Taylor for the field, arriving at Alexandria, Va., on April 24, where
they were assigned to the 2nd brigade, 3d division. It is sufficient to
say that they took an honorable part in the engagements at the North
Anna river, Totopotomy, Bethesda Church, Cold Harbor, Siege of
Petersburg, and the actions about Richmond. The two companies were
permanently transferred to the 60th Ohio on Feb. 24, 1865, and were
mustered out on July 28, at Washington, D. C. The roll of honor of these
two companies contains the names of 53 men who lost their lives while in
the service of the government. Nine were killed in battle and 44 died
from wounds received or from disease.
