|One Hundred and Sixty-first Infantry. — Col., Oliver P.
Taylor; Lieut.-Col., George S. Corner; Maj., Samuel B. Pugh. This
regiment was organized at Camp Chase, May 9, 1864, to serve for 100
days. It was composed of the 70th battalion, Ohio National Guard, from
Tuscarawas county; the 43d battalion, from Noble county; and one company
of the 58th battalion, from Hancock county. It was immediately ordered
to Cumberland, Md., where it arrived at noon on the 12th. On the 28th it
moved to Martinsburg, W. Va., and on June 4 Cos. A, B, D, F and H, with
other troops, were sent up the Shenandoah Valley with a supply train for
Hunter's army, then supposed to be near Staunton. On reaching that place
it was found that Hunter had advanced, but they linally overtook him at
Lexington on the 11th. They remained with Hunter until he arrived at
Lynchburg, when they were ordered back to Martinsburg. After
considerable marching and guard duty the regiment fell back to Maryland
heights. Early on the morning of July 6 skirmishing commenced and
continued for two days, the regiment taking an active part. On Aug. 25
it was ordered to Ohio and was mustered out on Sept. 2, 1864.
