FIFTIETH OHIO VOLUNTEER INFANTRY.



THIS regiment, recruited from the State at large, was organized at Camp Dennison, and
mustered into the service on the 27th of August, 1862, with an aggregate of nine
hundred and sixty-four men. On the 1st of September it moved into Kentucky for
the defense of Cincinnati against Kirby Smith's raid, and about the 20th of the same month
it went to Louisville.

The Fiftieth was assigned to the Thirty-Fourth Brigade, Tenth Division, McCook's Corps.
On the 1st of October the regiment moved out of Louisville, and on the 8th of October went into
the battle of Perryville. In this engagement the regiment lost two officers killed and one mor-
tally wounded, and one hundred and sixty-two men killed and wounded. During the advance
of the army on Nashville the regiment was stationed at Lebanon, then the base of supplies.
After a series of marches and counter-marches in pursuit of John Morgan, the regiment was
detached from its brigade, and was stationed at Muldraugh's Hill. Here it remained from Feb-
ruary, 1863, until September, 1863, engaged in building fortifications and in constructing trestles
over Big Run, and over Sulphur Fork and Rolling Fork of Green River. During this time the
regiment built Forts Boyle, Sands, and McAllister. On the 18th of September the Fiftieth
moved to Glasgow, Kentucky, and after a few days' rest proceeded to Nashville. Here, it
remained about two weeks, performing picket-duty, and it was then ordered to Gallatin, Ten-
nessee, and thence to Glasgow, Kentucky. On the 25th of December the regiment was ordered
to Knoxville, Tennessee. The route lay eastward to Somerset, Kentucky, and thence south-
ward, crossing the Cumberland River at Point Isabelle. On the 1st of January, 1864. when the



Fiftieth Ohio Infantry. 307

weather was so very cold, the regiment was prepared to move across the mountains. In the
severest winter weather the men dragged the artillery and wagons over the mountains by hand,
slept on the frozen ground, in rain and snow, without shelter, and subsisted on parched corn.
Jacksboro', Tennessee, was reached at last, and here the regiment remained until the 22d of Feb-
ruary, engaged in building a wagon-road through Wheeler's Gap, along the course of Cove
Creek. Upon arriving at Knoxville the Fiftieth camped about two weeks on the south side of
the Holston, and then moved to Loudon, Tennessee, where it received orders to join General
Sherman's army at Kingston, Georgia.

After forced marches from Cleveland, Tennessee, to Kingston, Georgia, the average distance
per day being twenty-seven miles, the regiment reached Kingston on the 23d of May. It was
ordered immediately to Cass Station, and arrived that same evening. The next morning the
Fiftieth Ohio, the Fourteenth Kentucky Infantry, and the Second Kentucky Cavalry, forming a
provisional brigade, were ordered back to Kingston. At half-past seven A. M. the brigade was
attacked by three brigades of Wheeler's cavalry. The engagement lasted three hours. The
Rebels were driven back and the command marched into Kingston. After two days' stay at
Kingston the regiment marched and joined the main army at Burnt Hickory, Georgia. The
Fiftieth was assigned to the Third Brigade, Second Division, Twenty-Third Army Corps. From
this time until after the siege of Atlanta the regiment was in line of battle almost constantly.
It shared in all the movements of the campaign, and participated in the actions at Pumpkin-Vine
Creek, Dallas, New Hope Church, Lost Mountain, Pine Mountain, Kenesaw Mountain, Culpe
House, Nicojack Creek, Chattahoochie River, Howard House, Atlanta, and Jonesboro'. During
this campaign the ranks of the regiment were fearfully thinned.

After the battle of Jonesboro' the regiment remained at Decatur, Georgia, one month, and
then started in pursuit of Hood's army. It marched through Marietta, Kingston, Rome, and
into Cherokee County, Alabama, and halted for a few days at Cedar Bluffs, on the Coosa River.
The regiment moved into Tennessee, and skirmished three days at Columbia. Hood having moved
to General Schofield's left, the main army was ordered to Spring Hill. Upon nearing Spring
Hill it was found that the Rebels had swung across the main road. The Fiftieth was placed on
the left of the road, and, with the remainder of the brigade on the right, it drove the Rebels
from their position, and formed a junction with the division of the Fourth Corps which had
held Spring Hill during the afternoon against Cheatham's corps. The regiment arrived at
Franklin, Tennessee, at seven o'clock A. M. on the 30th of November, and immediately com-
menced throwing up fortifications. During the battle in the afternoon the regiment was posted
on the right of the Columbia Pike, with its left flank resting on the pike. In this position it
received and repelled eleven successive charges. It went into the battle with an aggregate of
two hundred and twenty-five men, and came out with one hundred and twelve. It fell back
with the army to Nashville, and participated in the battle at that place on the 15th and 16th of
December, losing several men. The regiment followed the retreating Rebels as far as Columbia,
Tennessee, where it was consolidated with the Ninety-Ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. At the
time of the consolidation the regiment numbered only about one hundred men. The consol-
idated regiment was denominated the Fiftieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

The regiment accompanied the Twenty-Third Corps to Clifton, Tennessee, and thence to
Fort Fisher, moving via Cincinnati and Washington City. It moved to Wilmington, North Car-
olina, and proceeded from there to Kingston, and then to Goldsboro', and then to Raleigh, and
then to Greensboro', and at last to Salisbury, North Carolina, where it was mustered out on the
26th of June, 1865. On the 17th of July the regiment arrived at Camp Dennison, Ohio, where
it was paid and discharged

FIFTY-FIRST OHIO VOLUNTEER INFANTRY.



THE FIFTY-FIKST OHIO was organized October 3, 1861, at Camp Meigs, near
Can-al Dover, Tuscarawas County. On November 3d it left Camp Meigs and went by
