commenced its retreat. In this battle the Ninety-Ninth lost three officers and seventeen men
killed ; two officers and forty-one men wounded ; and one officer and twenty-nine men captured.

After the battle the regiment took position at Murfreesboro', on the left of the line, near the
Lebanon Pike, and was engaged in picketing, fortifying, and foraging. It participated in a re-
connoissance to Snow Hill, the enemy was encountered, and the regiment lost one man wounded.
On the 30th of June, 1863, it marched by way of Woodbury to McMinnville, where it remained
until the 16th of August, when it moved to Pikeville, in the Sequatchie Valley. On the 31st of
August five companies of the regiment, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Cummins, crossed the
mountains, back to McMinnville, guarding a supply-train ; recrossed the mountains to Dunlap,
in the Sequatchie Valley; marched thence over the mountains to Poe's Tavern in the Tennessee
Valley ; and, leaving the train, crossed into the Sequatchie Valley, marched down to Bridgeport,
crossed the Tennessee River, and followed up the main army to Chattanooga. It rejoined the
remainder of the regiment at Ringgold before the battle of Chickamauga. The Ninety-Ninth
was engaged during both days of this battle, and lost two officers and three men killed; twenty-
eight men wounded, and twenty-four men missing. Shortly afterward, the Twentieth and Twenty-
First Corps were consolidated, and the Ninety- Ninth was transferred to the Second Brigade, First
Division, Fourth Corps. The brigade camped for a time opposite the point of Lookout Moun-
tain, and the Ninety-Ninth held Williams Island, about ten miles below Chattanooga, when the
National troops took possession of Lookout Valley. On the 1st of November the brigade moved
V? Shell Mound, and was engaged in guarding and repairing the railroad from Chattanooga to
Bridgeport. On the 22d it moved up to Lookout Valley, and on the 24th participated in the
"battle among the clouds." The brigade was the second line of the charging column, and was
formed in line extending downward from the rocks near the top of the mountain. As the lines
i wept around the mountain, the Second gained on the First; and as they neared the White House
on the point, the Second, in its impetuosity, rushed through the First, and held the advance until
relieved by fresh troops, after dark. On the next day the regiment was engaged at Mission
Ridge, on the extreme right of the National line. It followed the retreating Rebels to Ringgold,
and on the 1st of December returned to Shell Mound. In these battles the regiment lost one
sfficer wounded, three men killed, and twelve wounded.

The Ninety-Ninth remained in camp at Shell Mound until the 27th of February, 1864, when
it moved to Cleveland, Tennessee, and on the 3d of May started on the Atlanta campaign. Its
courage and discipline were tested and not found wanting at Rocky Face Ridge, Kenesaw Moun-
tain, Pine Mountain, Atlanta, Jonesboro', and Lovejoy ; indeed, during the whole campaign it
was under fire almost daily, but its most severe engagement was on the night of June 20th, near
Kenesaw. The Rebel skirmishers had been driven from the top of a hill within seventy-five
yards of the enemy's main works, and a line was formed across the ridge, the Ninety-Ninth oc-
cupying the summit. While the troops were erecting breastworks, the Rebels opened with artil-
lery and soon charged. They were repulsed, but returned to the attack again and again ; and the
fighting continued, with but slight intervals, till midnight. It was exceedingly close, and many
men were killed and wounded with the bayonet. Each man in the Ninety-Ninth fired, upon an
average, one hundred and fifty rounds of ammunition, and a growth of small timber in front of
the line was mown down as if by a scythe. The regiment lost eight men killed, and two officers
and fifteen men wounded.

On the 23d of June the Ninety-Ninth was assigned to the Fourth Brigade, Second Division,
Twenty-Third Corps. The division took possession of Decatur on the 19th of July, and the
Ninety-Ninth being on the skirmish-line, lost eight men wounded in driving back the Rebel Cav-
alry. It participated in the fighting around Atlanta, and moved with the corps to Jonesboro'
and Lovejoy, sustaining slight loss. In the meantime it had been assigned to the First Brigade,
of the same division and corps. On the 8th of September it returned to Decatur, having lost on
the Atlanta campaign thirty men killed and fifty-six wounded.

On the 1st of October the regiment started in pursuit of Hood. The brigade moved by way
of Resaca, Johnsonville, and Waverly to Duck River, at Centerville; and for some time it was



jVinety-Ninth Ohio Infantry. 545

engaged in guarding the crossings. For a few weeks it was cut off entirely from any communi-
cation with the army ; but about the 1st of December orders were received by courier to march
for Franklin. This place was found to be in the hands of the enemy, and the march was con-
tinued to Nashville. The brigade moved across to the Charlotte Pike, and by marching all night
and the next day arrived at Charlotte, having traveled sixty-four miles. From Charlotte it
marched to Clarksville, and thence to Nashville, where it arrived on the 10th of December. In
many places the country was infested by guerrillas, and twelve men of the brigade, who fell be-
hind, were murdered in cold blood. It took its place in line in front of Nashville, and on the
morning of the 15th of December moved out to where Hood was intrenched. About noon the
division became engaged. It drove the Eebels from hill to hill, and from fort to fort, until it
came upon them strongly posted on a hill, behind a stone wall. The division, without waiting
for orders, charged instinctively, and after a short, sharp struggle the hill was captured, and the
guns were turned upon the enemy. On the evening of the next day the regiment was again
engaged in an attack on the enemy, in which many prisoners were captured. In this battle the
Ninety-Ninth lost nine men killed and wounded. It pursued the retreating army as far as Co-
lumbia. At this place it was consolidated with the Fiftieth Ohio, and the Ninety-Ninth ceased
to be an organization. The regimental colors were forwarded to Governor Brough, who acknowl-
edged their reception in a highly complimentary letter.

100th OHIO VOLUNTEER INFANTRY.



THIS regiment was organized at Toledo during the months of July and August, 1862,
and was mustered into the service on the 1st of September following. On the 8th of
September the regiment moved to Cincinnati, for the defense of that city. On the 9th
it went into position on Covington Heights, a few rods in front and to the left of Fort Mitchel.

The regiment marched for Lexington, Kentucky, on the 8th of October, and remained there,
undergoing a thorough course of instruction, until about the 1st of December, when it moved to
Richmond. It was engaged in work on the fortifications until the 26th of December, when it
moved to Danville, and on the 3d of January, 1863, it moved to Frankfort. Toward the last of
February it marched to Lexington to intercept a Rebel raid, and from that point it marched to
Crab Orchard, Mount Vernon, Somerset, and to various other points where the presence of the
enemy rendered it necessary. On the 13th of August the regiment went into camp at Danville,
preparatory for the march for East Tennessee. Upon arriving at Knoxville a portion of the reg-
iment was sent up to the Virginia State Line to guard the railroad. The detachment, two
hundred and forty strong, was captured by the enemy on the 4th of September, and was sent to
Richmond, Virginia. The regiment participated in the defense of Knoxville, and was on active
duty during its stay in East Tennessee. Early in the spring of 1864 the regiment marched in
the Twenty-Third Army Corps to join General Sherman, then at Tunnell Hill, Georgia. It
moved on the Atlanta campaign, and was present at almost every battle from Rocky Face Ridge
to Atlanta. On the 6th of August it was engaged in an assault on the Rebel works in front of
Atlanta, with a loss of one hundred and three men out of three hundred. Thirty-six men were
killed on the Held, and eight more died from wounds within the next thirty days. The Colonel
was disabled for life. After the evacuation of Atlanta it joined in the pursuit of Hood, and
participated in the battles of Franklin and Nashville. It moved with the Twenty- Third Corps
to Wilmington, North Carolina, and was there actively engaged. It marched into the interior,
and moved from Goldsboro' to Raleigh with Sherman's army. It next moved to Greensboro',
and from there to Cleveland, Ohio, where it was mustered out of the service on the 1st of July,
1865, having served tw r o years and ten months from muster-in to muster-out.

The One Hundredth lost during its term of service sixty-five men killed in action, one hun-
dred and forty-two wounded; twenty-seven died of wounds, one hundred and eight died of dis-
ease, three hundred and twenty-five captured by the enemy, and eighty-five died in Rebel prisons.
It participated in the battles of Lenoir Station, Knoxville, Rocky Face Ridge, Resaca, Dallas,
Etowah Creek, Atlanta, Columbus, Franklin, Nashville, Town Creek, and Wilmington.
