Regimental History
One Hundred and Sixtieth Infantry. Col., Cyrus Reasoner; Lieut.- Col., David W. D. Marsh; Maj., Henry L. Harbaugh. This regiment was organized at Zanesville, May 12 to 14, 1864, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 53d battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Perry county; 91st battalion, from Muskingum county; part of the 40th battalion, from Brown county ; and part of the 73d battalion, from Fairfield county. The regiment was immediately placed en-route to Harper's Ferry, where its first duty was to guard a supply train to Martinsburg. On its return it was placed in the 1st brigade, 1st division, of Gen. Hunter's army and on the morning of May 25 moved with it to Woodstock, Va. It then marched with Gen. Hunter toward the front, but was again detached and sent back to Martinsburg in charge of a supply train, and upon reaching the vicinity of Middletown was engaged in a skirmish with Mosby's guerrillas. From this time until the muster-out of the regiment it was subjected to almost continual marching and countermarching through the Shenandoah Valley, and engaged in a number of skirmishes. On Aug. 25 it started for Ohio and arrived in Zanesville on the 29th. It was mustered out on Sept. 7, 1864, on expiration of term of service.
