captains at once reported with their commands at Camp Anderson,
Lancaster, where the regimental organization was completed and the
drilling and equipment for the field was vigorously pushed. On June 5,
the regiment was mustered into the service of the State of Ohio, for a
period of three months, and under the second call for 300,000 men by the
president it was immediately transferred to the U. S. service. On
entering Virginia the regiment was divided, and served the government
honorably, guarding provision trains, making river expeditions,
operating against guerrillas, etc. On Aug. 3, having overserved their
time some days, the men were ordered home, arriving at Zanesville on
Aug. 13, where the regiment was mustered out at Camp Goddard two days
later. The regiment suffered the loss of 3 men — 1 drowned in Virginia,
and 2 who died of disease.
