|Thirty-third Infantry. — Cols., Joshua W. Sill, Oscar
F. Moore; Lieut.-Cols., Frederick J. Lock, James H. M. Montgomery,
Joseph Hinson; Majs., Joshua V. Robinson, Ephraim J. Ellis, Benjamin F.
Barger, Thomas Sikes. This regiment was organized at Portsmouth, from
Aug. 27 to Oct. 11, 1861, to serve for three years. It entered the
service with an aggregate of 839 men and joined the forces of Gen.
Nelson at Maysville, Ky. Its service was somewhat varied during the
first year, but it was in no actual engagement until at Perryville,
where it went into the fight with 400 muskets and lost 129 men killed
and wounded, 25 of whom were buried on the field. It took part in the
battle of Chickamauga, going into action with 343 men, and losing in
killed, wounded and missing, 168. It fell back with the main army to
Rossville and Chattanooga and was cooped up in that beleaguered city
until Nov. 24, when it participated in the battle of Lookout mountain
and lost heavily. It then rejoined its division and took part in
carrying Missionary ridge, losing in that brilliant affair 31 men out of
200 engaged. The regiment then veteranized and after being furloughed
home joined Gen. Sherman's forces on the Atlanta campaign, participating
in the battles of Resaca, Cassville, Kennesaw mountain, Peachtree creek,
and Jonesboro. The aggregate number of officers and men killed and
wounded in this campaign was about 170. The 33d followed Hood as far as
Villanow, Ga., in his mad movement toward Nashville, after which it
accompanied Sherman in his march to the sea and the campaign through the
Carolinas. At Bentonville N. C, it suffered severely, paying there its
last tribute to the cause of the Union. It then made the triumphant
march through the Confederate capital to Washington, where it
participated in the grand review; was then taken to Louisville, Ky., and
mustered out on July 12, 1865.
