Regimental History
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.
