|Sixtieth Infantry.— (Three Years' Service.) Col., James
N. McElroy; Lieut.-Col, Martin P. Avery; Majs., William L. Stearns,
Henry R. Stevens. Cos. A, B, C, D, E, F and I of this regiment were
organized at Cleveland and Columbus in the months of Feb., March, April
and May, 1864, to serve for three years. Co. K was organized in Nov. and
Dec, 1864, to serve for one year. The 9th and 10th independent
companies, Ohio sharpshooters, were transferred to the regiment on Feb.
24, 1865, and known as companies G and H. Upon the completion of six
companies the regiment was ordered to the field in Virginia. It crossed
the Rapidan and took part in the battle of the Wilderness. It led the
advance of a column of two divisions in the attack at Marye's bridge
over the Ny river and was specially distinguished in orders by the
general commanding for the gallantry with which it crossed the stream
and carried the position of the enemy. In all the actions about
Spottsylvania in which the corps was engaged the regiment took an
honorable part, suffering very much in that series of engagements. It
also took an honorable part in the engagements at the North Anna river,
Cold Harbor, the siege of Petersburg and the actions about Richmond. It
was mustered out of service July 28, 1865, and the rolls show the
casualties to have been 505, with but 17 missing.
