This regiment was organized at Dayton, Aug. 20, 1862, to serve for three years. It left the rendezvous for Lexington, Ky., numbering 39 officers and 929 men, and moved with the army to Nashville. In December, while on duty guarding a forage-train, it was attacked by the Confederates, and in this, its first engagement, it lost 1 man killed and 3 wounded. At the battle of Stone's river it suffered severely. Its next engagement was at Chickamauga, where during the first day's fight it charged a Confederate battery, killed all the horses, and captured the guns and the men. In the first day's engagement the regiment lost 124 officers and men killed, wounded and prisoners. It was in the charge on Orchard knob in November and suffered severely. The time occupied in making the charge was not more than 5 or 6 minutes, but in that time the regiment lost 11 killed and 49 wounded, 6 men being shot down while carrying the regimental colors. The regiment was in the assault on Missionary ridge and sustained a loss of 8 killed and 20 wounded. It then started for East Tennessee and participated in the severe winter campaign of 1863-64. At a skirmish near Dandridge it lost 1 killed, 4 wounded and 3 captured. In May it broke camp and started on the Atlanta campaign with an aggregate of 300 men. It marched to Rossville and thence to Buzzard Roost, where a feint was made on the Confederate works, in which the regiment lost 4 men wounded. The loss of the regiment in the battle of Resaca was 4 killed and 21 wounded. In the fight at Dallas it was in the front line, losing 48 killed and wounded. In the operations around Kennesaw mountain it lost 3 killed and 44 wounded. It was present all through the siege of Atlanta ; was in reserve at Jonesboro, and was in the front line at Lovejoy's Station. It then followed Hood into Tennessee; lay in reserve during the fight at Franklin ; went into the fight at Nashville with 90 men and lost 4 killed and 21 wounded. It performed guard duty in various sections during the following winter and those of its members whose term of service would have expired previous to Oct. 1, were mustered out on June 8, 1865, the remaining members being transferred to the 41st Ohio infantry. Prior to the muster out of the regiment 8 officers and 241 men were discharged for disability ; 4 officers and 204 men were accounted for as "died of disease, wounds and killed in action," 252 men were wounded once, 30 twice, and 8 three times.
