HISTOEY OF TAZE^\'ELL, COUNTY.



28tli INFANTRY.

The 2Stli was organized at Camp Butler, in the month of August, 1861.

The 28th met the enemy for the tirst time at Little Bethel Church, near
Fort Henry, February 13, 18fi2, when a detachment of sixty men met and
repulsed a "force of five hundred men. It was next engaged in the battle of
Pittsl)urg Landing, when it drove General Prentiss, early in the day of April
6, 1862; was assigned a position in the Peach Orchard, which it held under a
destructive fire for seven hours, only retiring by order of General Hurlbut.
During these two blooily days of Pittsburg Landing the regiment fought
heroically, suffering a loss of 239 killed and wounded. It was engaged in the
siege of Corinth during the month of May, 1862; also in the siege of Vicks-
burg from June lltli to .Julv 4th, 1863.

On the 12th of July, 1863, near Jackson, ]\Iississippi, the 28th was ordered
to charge across a level field and carry a strong line of the enemy's works,
mounting twelve guns and manned by two thousand men, and while it was
not possible to (nipture tlie works, these heroic men swept bravely forward
under a destructive fire of grape and canister. The enemy appearing on both
flanks as it reached the ditch, it was compelled to fall back, with more than
half of the rank and file killed or wounded. Of the 128 men of this regiment
in line, 73 were killed and wounded, and 16 taken prisoners.

On the 4th of January, 1864, the regiment, having re-enlisted as veterans,
was mustered for three years' veteran service.

The 28th participated in the advance on Spanish Fort, March 27, 1865.

following day, after a hard march without rations, came upon the enemy, after

and 40 wounded ; their liag received 153 shots, the staflf being shot in two

This regiment was organized in August, 1861, at Camp Ellsworth, Chioago,
and left for St. Louis, September 14th, where, at Benton Barracks, it remained
till the 22d, was armed and left for Jefferson City, where it took quarters in the
State House. It then went to Sedalia, and was assigned to General Siegel's
famous division. On October 13th moved to Springfield, Missouri, and No-
vember 8th moved to Wilson's Creek, but retreated next day toward Rolla,
where it remained during the winter.

On February 2, 1862, it moved toward Springfield, from where an exciting
chase of General Price was kept up till Camp Halleck, Arkansas, was reached,
where they remained till March 5th, when it became evident that the com-
bined forces of Van Dorn, Price and McCullough were marching to give l)attle,
and accordingly on the 6th moved toward Sugar Creek Valley, and the same
day the rear guard was attacked by the enemy and repulsed. Thus began the
terrible battle of Pea Eiilge, which resulted so disastrously to the rebels, in
which this regiment took a prominent part. The 44th followed up the retreat
of the enemy, taking hundreds of prisoners. May 8th took up line of March
toward Little Rock, but changed to Cape Girardeau, on Mississijipi, two
hundred miles distant, and from thence by water to Pittsburg Landing. After
evacuation of Corinth was attached to General Pope's army, and sent in
pursuit of the retreating foe. Bad roads prevented, and went into camp at
Brenzo.

The 18th was sent to Cincinnati September 1st, and from there to Coving-
ton, Kentucky, thence to Louisville, where the command was re-organized
under Major-General Buell, and started on the memorable cami^aign after
Bragg, and was in the battle of Perryville under General Sheridan. Went to
Bowling Green, where General Rosecrans assumed command, and November
4th started for Nashville; remained till December 26th, and moved against
the rebels at Murfreesboro. In the bloody battle of Stone river the 18th took
a prominent part, losing more than half its number in killed and wounded.
Remained there till June, 186.3, when it marched to meet the enemy; arrived
at Cowan's Station July 2d, then marched to Stevenson, Alabama, driving the
rebels. Augfist 21st the movement against Chattanooga began, and took part
in the bloody conflict September 19th and 20th. It was foremost in the des-
perate charge upon Mission Ridge, General Sheridan giving it i>raise for having
placed one of the first flags upon the rebel works. Noveml)er 27th set out for
a forced march to Knoxville, one hundred and fifty miles distant ; it arrived
three days after siege had been raised by General Burnside. At Blain's Cross
Roads, while in camp, the troops were on the point of starvation several
times, having, for days at a time, nothing but corn in the ear, and but limited
supply of that. Nothing could more fully prove the patriotism of the men
than the fact, that here, on the point of starvation, exposed to the most
inclement weather, (it being so cold that the ink would freeze to the pen as
the men signed their names,) over three-fourths of the men voluntarily con-
sented to serve three years more. Marched to Dandridge, Tennessee, and
was attacked January l'6th and 17th, and after much hard fighting, becoming
evident that the whole rebel army was advancing, fell back to Knoxville.
March 4, 1864, the men were furloughed, and started for home, having
marched over five thousand miles.

April 14, 1864, the regiment reached Nashville on its way back to the field.
Moved toward Atlanta, and entered on the 8th of September. Was in many
battles during this memorable campaign; was sent to Athens, Alabama, but
fell back to Nashville, followed by the rebels. At Franklin, Tennessee, Gen-
eral Schofield determined to give battle. The conflict was short and desperate.
Took part in the battle of Nashville. January 5, 1865, went into camp at
Huntsville, Alabama. In April ordered to Nashville, where it was thought
it would be mustered out, but instead were ordered to New Orleans, and July
16th ordered to Texas, where it remained till September 25th, when it was
mustered out.
