Concerning the 15th, the Official Army Register says: "This regiment was
organized in the state of Ohio at large, in September, 1861, to serve
three years. On the expiration of its term of service the original
members (except veterans) were mustered out, and the organization,
composed of volunteers and recruits, retained in service until Nov. 21,
1865, when it was mustered out in accordance with orders of the war
department." The regiment was engaged at Shiloh, occupation of Corinth,
Stone's river, Liberty gap, Chickamauga, Missionary ridge, Rocky Face
ridge, Resaca, Cassville, Pickett's mills, Kennesaw mountain, Peachtree
creek, Hood's First Sortie at Atlanta, Lovejoy's station, Franklin and
Nashville. In its first engagement at Shiloh it lost 6 men killed and 62
wounded. In the battle of Stone's river it was heavily engaged, losing
18 killed and 89 wounded. It took a prominent part at Liberty gap, where
it lost 1 officer and 7 men killed and 23 wounded. At Chickamauga it
lost 1 officer and 9 men killed, 2 officers and 69 men wounded, and 40
men missing. At Nashville the regiment formed the extreme left of the
line and when the order came for the left to move forward the regiment
advanced rapidly, capturing a fine battery of 4 brass guns and some 30
prisoners. The 15th was among the first regiments to be mustered in, and
among the last to be mustered out, having been in the service as an
organization about four years and eight months, including the three
months' service. Few regiments present a better record and in respect to
its morale it holds an enviable position.
