|Fifty-second Infantry. — Col., Daniel McCook;
Lieut.-Cols., Daniel D. T. Cowen, Charles W. Clancy; Majs., Israel D.
Clark, James T. Holmes. This regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, in
Aug., 1862, to serve for three years. At sunrise on Aug. 25, it left
Camp Dennison for Lexington, Ky., passing through Cincinnati. The fall
and winter of 1862 and the summer of 1863 were occupied by the regiment
in various marches and detail work in the states of Kentucky, Tennessee
and Alabama, Chickamauga being its first actual engagement. There it
took a prominent part and was one of the last regiments to leave the
field. From that time until the opening of the Atlanta campaign the
regiment was again variously employed, marching, doing guard duty, etc.
At Resaca it performed a prominent part, making a charge with success,
but at a sad cost of life. It was in the terrible struggle at Kennesaw
mountain, and was busily engaged through all the movements up to
Atlanta, maintaining throughout its fine reputation for discipline,
courage, and endurance. From Atlanta it moved with Sherman's army to
Savannah and thence through the Carolinas northward. Then came the march
to Washington, the review before the president and cabinet, and the
final muster-out on June 3, 1865.
