rience of soldier-life by lying prone on the naked ground. That night's experience will long be
remembered; and many a good jolly laugh has been expended at the recollection of the learned
and serious conversations of the night about "suffering for the country," ''the Valley Forge
days repeated," etc. Their subsequent experience of the hardships and privations of the sol-
dier's life threw that night's "frolic" far into the shade.

The regiment remained at Fort Lyon, busily engaged in strengthening the fortifications and
perfecting its drill, until the 5th of June, when orders were received to report to General
Abercrombie at White House Landing, on the Pamunkey River. Among the men some aston-
ishment was expressed that they should be selected for duty at the extreme front; but, as good
loyal soldiers, they felt gratified at the confidence reposed in them.

The regiment took steamer at Alexandria on the 7th of June, and arrived at White House
on the 9th about midnight, and went into camp in the open field. The wounded from the battle
of Cold Harbor, then in progress, were being brought in — a gloomy reception to inexperienced
soldiers. Without rest, the regiment, carrying six days' rations, left all its baggage and marched
(at four o'clock in the morning) to guard a supply-train through the Wilderness to General
Grant's front, near Cold Harbor, a distance of sixteen miles. Arriving there in the evening
Colonel Cooper reported to General Meade, who ordered him to report his regiment to General
Butler at Bermuda Hundred. This point was reached, by water, on the 13th of June, where,
without being permitted to land, it was conveyed on transports to Point of Rocks, about five
miles below Petersburg. Here it was landed, and marched about six miles, to the extreme right

of the National line. Thinking to get a night's rest, the tired soldiers lay down on their
blankets ; but just as they had lapsed into dreamy Ibrgetfulness, the long roll was sounded.
Leaving its tents standing, the regiment was marched three miles on the double-quick, through
a dense, dark pine forest, filled with stumps and underbrush, over which the men often stumbled
and fell.

The point to be defended was reached, and the men were immediately placed in rifle-pits, in
which exposed position they passed about a week. They were then detailed to destroy a line of
earthworks from which the enemy had been driven. While engaged in this duty they were
resisted by the Rebels ; but the regiment, with the aid of other troops on the line, not only
effectually completed the destruction, but drove the Rebels from the field.

Hardly a day passed without the regiment or detachments from it being detailed to perform
picket and fatigue-duty. At one time the whole regiment was detailed to build a fort at Turkey
Bend, on the James River, which duty it performed with credit and dispatch, although inces-
santly annoyed by shells from a hostile battery.

On the 19th of August it received orders to repair to Washington City, as its term of service
had about expired. It accordingly embarked on transports at Bermuda Hundred and reached
Washington on the 21st. Thence it went by rail to Camp Chase, Ohio, and was there mustered
out of the service of the United States on the 2d of September, 1864.

The One Hundred and Forty-Second Ohio National Guard was raised principally in the
county of Knox, and was composed of men from all the various departments of life. The
farmer, the mechanic, the lawyer — aye, and the minister — all ceased their vocations for a time,
and offered their services — and their lives, if need be — to insure the perpetuity of the Union and
its institutions.

Out of an aggregate strength of eight hundred and forty-five men the regiment lost fifty,
mostly from disease incident to camp life, excessive fatigue, and exposure.

garrison-duty in Forts Slemmer, Totten, Slocum, and Stevens, north of the Potomac. On the
8th of June the regiment embarked for White House, Virginia; but, without debarking, it was
ordered to Bermuda Hundred. It was assigned to the Tenth Army Corps, and was placed in the
intrenchments at City Point, where it remained until ordered to Fort Pocahontas. It was
relieved from duty at Fort Pocahontas August 29th, and proceeded to Camp Chase, where it
arrived on the 5th of September, and was mustered out of the service on the 12th.

144th REGIMENT— NATIONAL GUARD.



THE NINETEENTH BATTALION Ohio National Guard, of Wyandotte County
and the Sixty-Fourth Battalion, Ohio National Guard, of Wood County, were consoli-
dated at Camp Chase on the 11th of May, 1864, forming the One Hundred and Forty-
Fourth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The regiment was ordered to report without delay to Gen-
eral Wallace, at Baltimore.

Upon its arrival in that city companies G and K were detached for duty in the fortifications,
and the remainder of the regiment reported to General Morris, at Fort McHenry ; and from
there company E was ordered to Wilmington, Delaware ; company B, to Camp Parole, near
Annapolis, and company I to Fort Dix, at the Relay House. On the 18th of May the regiment
was relieved from duty at Fort McHenry, and was ordered to the Kelay House, where it enjoyed
comparative quiet until the 1st of July, when General Early came down the Shenandoah, threat-
ening Baltimore and Washington. Companies B, G, and I were in the engagement at Monocacy
Junction, and suffered severely, losing in killed, wounded, and prisoners about fifty men. On
the 13th of July the regiment was ordered to Washington, and from there moved toward Win-
chester, Virginia, passing through Leesburg. It was halted at Snicker's Gap, and after a day's
delay was moved back toward Washington ; but it was soon again faced toward the Shenandoah
Valley, moving via Harper's Ferry, under the command of Major-General Wright.

At daylight on the 13th of August a portion of the One Hundred and Forty-Fourth, while
guarding a train near Berryville, Virginia, was attacked by Moseby's command, with two pieces
of artillery. Some confusion was caused by the first fire, but the men soon rallied, drove the
enemy, and saved the train. The detachment lost five killed, six wounded, and sixty captured.
The men were much fatigued by their continued marches, yet they never complained.

The regiment was mustered out of service on the 31st of August, 1864, with a loss of about
one hundred and twenty-five men killed, wounded, and captured. Many of those captured were
starved to death at Andersonville and other Rebel prison-pens.

145th REGIMENT-NATIONAL GUARD.



rriHE ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-FIFTH OHIO was organized at Camp

I Chase on the 10th of May, 1864. It was immediately ordered to Washington City,

M and on its arrival was assigned to General Augur as garrison for Forts Whipple,

Woodbury, Cass, Tillinghast, and Albany, comprising the southern defenses of Washington, on

Arlington Heights.

The service of the regiment consisted principally of garrison and fatigue-duty, in which,
during its whole term, it was incessantly employed. This duty was arduous, the men having
little rest. The regiment was drilled in both infantry and heavy artillery tactics, under the
supervision of General De Russy.

In July, 1864, when the Rebel General Early made his last raid down the Shenandoah Val-
ley, and threatened Washington, the One Hundred and Forty-Fifth was daily and nightly kept
under arms.

Although not engaged with the enemy during its term of service, the duties performed by
the regiment were valuable, from the fact that it took the place of veteran soldiers, who were
thus permitted to re-enforce General Grant in his advance on Richmond.

On August 20th, the time of its enlistment having expired, the regiment was moved by the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to Baltimore, and thence by the Northern Central, Pennsylvania
Central, etc., to Camp Chase, where, on the 23d of August, 1864, it was mustered out of the
United States service.

146th REGIMENT— NATIONAL GUARD.



THIS regiment — composed principally of men from Warren, Clark, and Lawrenco
Counties — was mustered into the service at Camp Dennison, on the 12th of May, 1864.
On the 17th of the same month the regiment moved to Charleston, West Virginia,
when companies A and H were detailed to guard three hundred Rebel prisoners to Camp Chase.
On the 23d of May the One Hundred and Forty Sixth Ohio proceeded to Fayetteville, where it
performed garrison-duty. Tlie country was infested by marauding bands, and occasional dashes
were made upon the pickets. Continual watchfulness was necessary on the part of the garrison
to prevent surprise and capture. On the 27th of August the regiment was ordered to report at
Camp Piatt, for transportation to Ohio. It was mustered out of the service at Camp Dennison,
on the 7th of September, 1864.

147th REGIMENT-NATIONAL GUARD.



THE ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-SEVENTH was formed by the consol-
idation of the Twenty-Fifth Regiment and Eighty-Seventh Battalion Ohio National
Guard. The regiment rendezvoused at Troy, on the 2d of May, 1864, and was fur-
loughed until the 13th, when it re-assembled and reported at Camp Dennison. It was mustered
in on the lGth, was armed and equipped during the night of the 19th, and started for Washing-
ton City on the 20th.

Upon arrival the regiment reported to General Augur, and was ordered on duty at Fort
Ethan Allen. Upon reaching the fort all the quarters were occupied, and the regiment was all
night exposed to a severe storm. The next morning the regiment was ordered to Fort Strong,
where it again was exposed to a continuous storm for three days. As the result of this exposure
fifty men were reported on the sick list. On the 27th of May the regiment was ordered back to
Fort Ethan Allen, where six companies were stationed, and the other four were ordered to Fort
Marcy. On the 1st of June company A was detailed to perform guard-duty at division head-
quarters, and remained there during its term of service. At midnight on the 11th of June the
regiment was ordered to Fort Reno, and upon arriving, at daylight, found the enemy near the
fort, and the pickets skirmishing heavily. It took position in the trenches and remained until
twelve o'clock, when it was ordered to Crystal Springs.

Marching as far as Fort Stevens, where the Rebels were again found, the One Hundred and
Forty-Seventh moved into the trenches as a support to the First Maine and Fir6t Ohio Batteries.
In this position the regiment remained until July 4th, when it returned to Fort Ethan Allen.
Though the One Hundred and Forty-Seventh was not actively engaged at Fort Stevens, it waa
under the enemy's fire. It occupied its old quarters till the 23d of August, when it was ordered
to report to Camp Dennison for muster-out. In passing through Washington the regiment
halted in front of the White House, and received the thanks of President Lincoln for the ser-
vice it had rendered. The regiment received its final pay and discharge on the 30th of
August, 1864.

148th REGIMENT— NATIONAL GUARD.



IN response to the call of Governor Brough, the Forty-Sixth Regiment Ohio National
Guard, numbering six hundred and fifty-four men, of Washington County, reported for
duty at Marietta on the 2d of May, 1864. Subsequently the Ninety-Sixth Battalion, of
Vinton County, was consolidated with the Forty-Sixth Regiment, forming the One Hundred and
Forty-Eighth Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The regiment was mustered into the service
on the 17th and 18th of May. The officers were all Washington County men except Major
Edmiston and Captains McDowell and McCormick. The Colonel had been a Captain in the
Thirty-Sixth Ohio, the Lieutenant-Colonel had been a Lieutenant in the Seventy-Seventh Ohio,
and the Major had been a Captain in the Eighteenth Ohio. Several of the line-officers also had
been in the service, and nearly the whole regiment had been tried, briefly but laboriously, during
the Morgan raid of the previous year. Company A, in particular, had been called out repeatedly,
and on two or th»ee occasions had been sent into Virginia, when the border was threatened. An
unusual proportion of the men in this company were students and merchants, and it is worthy of
remark that, during one hundred and thirty-six days' service, it was the only company in the
regiment that did not lose a man by sickness.

On the 23d of May the regiment left Marietta for the field. Scarcely had the train passed
out of sight of the town, when an accident occurred to it on the Union Railroad, by which Jere-
miah Stuckey of company A was killed; John H. McKinim, of Athens County, and Alexander
IS. Nugent, of Franklin, Pennsylvania, students in the Preparatory Department of Marietta Col-
lege, who were accompanying their friends in the regiment to Parkersburg, were killed; William
Hildebrand, William Fleming, and First-Lieutenant Gates were seriously injured. Lieutenant
Gates went forward with the regiment, but he had received such internal injury that, coupled
with pneumonia, it resulted in his death on the 31st, six days after the regiment had arrived
at Harper's Ferry. This accident, together with the subsequent death of Lieutenant Gates, cast
a gloom over the regiment and throughout the community from which its members had been
gathered. Although the youngest officer, and one of the youngest men in the regiment, no one
was more generally known and more universally beloved than Charles Beman Gates. The vari-
ous testimonials of affection and regret from the College Societies with which he was connected,



One Hundred and Forty-Eighth Ohio Infantry. 679

and from the officers of his regiment, are evidence of the high esteem in which this youthful
Christian patriot was held by his associates.

After remaining about ten days at Harper's Ferry the regiment moved to Washington, and
on the 9th of June left that city for White House on the Pamunkey. On the 11th it* left White
House, arrived at Bermuda Hundred on the 12th, and on the 13th went into General Butler's
intrenchments at the front. On the 16th seven companies, under command of the Lieutenant-
Colonel, left Bermuda Hundred for City Point. On the 9th of August, by the explosion of an
ordnance boat at City Point, three men of the regiment were killed — S. E. Graham of company
H, Joseph H. Smith of company D, and Joseph D. Clarke of company A. Young Clarke wa3
only about seventeen years old, was a member of the Preparatory Department in Marietta Col-
lege, and was the oldest son of the late Colonel Melvin Clarke, of the Thirty-Sixth Ohio, who
was killed instantly while gallantly leading his regiment at the battle of South Mountain, Sep-
tember, 1862. Sire and son, both instantly killed in their country's service, are buried side by
6ide in the Marietta Mound Cemetery.

On the 29th of August the One Hundred and Forty-Eighth Ohio left City Point, and arrived
at Marietta on the 5th of September. On the 13th a public dinner was given to the regiment
by the citizens of the county, and on the 14th it was mustered out of the service.
