S. Innis; Lieut.-Col., William Ewing; Maj., Joseph M. Clark. This
regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 6, 1864, to serve for 100
days. It was composed of two companies of the 58th battalion Ohio
National Guard, from Hancock county, and two companies of the 76th
battalion Ohio National Guard, from Franklin county. The regiment was
immediately ordered to Parkersburg, W. Va., where it arrived on May 8.
From this place it was ordered to New creek, thence to Washington, D. C,
and on June 7 was ordered to Bermuda Hundred, where it arrived on June
12. On June 16 the brigade to which it was assigned was ordered to
destroy the Richmond & Petersburg railroad. The regiment was assigned to
the support of a battery, which opened a cannonade on the enemy, and
then with other troops, succeeded in holding the Confederates in check
for 5 hours. On July 17 it embarked at Point of Rocks and proceeded to
Fort Powhatan, where it was employed on work on the fortifications and
in repairing telegraph lines. On Aug. 10 it proceeded to Washington,
thence to Camp Chase, where it was mustered out on Aug. 20, 1864.
