Twenty-sixth Independent Battery Light Artillery. Capt., Theobold D. Yost; First Lieuts., Levi J. Cox, Omar S. Lee, John C. Hampson ; Second Lieuts., Abel T. Lee, John E. Kitzmiller. This battery (formerly Co. F, 32nd Ohio infantry) was organized at Camp Hartley, Aug. 30, 1861, to serve for three years. It was permanently detached, as a battery, on Dec. 22, 1863. The engagements in which this battery took part, previous to the date of its detachment, will be found in connection with the 32nd infantry. After its veteran furlough the battery returned to Vicksburg, Miss., Feb. 3, 1864. It participated in a number of expeditions from Vicksburg and Natchez, and in November was ordered to report at Natchez for garrison duty. After the close of the war it was attached to the Texas expedition and served on the Rio Grande until Aug., 1865, when it was ordered to Ohio and mustered out on Sept. 2, 1865, at Tod Barracks, Columbus, in accordance with orders from the war department.
