Regimental History
Ninth and Tenth Independent Companies Sharpshooters. These independent companies were organized at Cleveland, in the months of Feb. and March, 1864. The 9th was mustered into the U. S. service on Feb. 26, and the 10th on April 1, at Cleveland. They rendezvoused at Camp Taylor, and were temporarily attached to the 60th Ohio infantry, a three years' regiment then composed of six companies. They left Camp Taylor for the field, arriving at Alexandria, Va., on April 24, where they were assigned to the 2nd brigade, 3d division. It is sufficient to say that they took an honorable part in the engagements at the North Anna river, Totopotomy, Bethesda Church, Cold Harbor, Siege of Petersburg, and the actions about Richmond. The two companies were permanently transferred to the 60th Ohio on Feb. 24, 1865, and were mustered out on July 28, at Washington, D. C. The roll of honor of these two companies contains the names of 53 men who lost their lives while in the service of the government. Nine were killed in battle and 44 died from wounds received or from disease.
