Ohio:

 

 

a. allgemeines:

Nach bei Kriegsbeginn geltendem Ohio-Recht konnte nur ein General aus der Ohio-Miliz kommandierender General der Ohio Miliz werden. Die Ernennung von McClellan durch Governor *Dennison zum Befehlshaber der Ohio Miliz machte daher eine Gesetzesän­derung erforderlich, weil McClellan nicht zur Ohio-Miliz gehörte (vgl. McClellan: McClellan's Own Story, a.a.O., S. 41).

The regiment received its first baptismal of fire at New Madrid, Missouri, March 3d, 1862. It is true the shells thrown from rebel gunboats and works were not of six pounder gun but of much heavier calibre, and made a hideous screeching noise, the like of which the boys had ne'er heard; their nerves were strung to the utmost tension as they saw that war was about to become a fixed fact. An in­cident that occurred at the time is worth relating (vgl. The 39th OVI an Major Noyes at New Madrid (Exzerpt from "Roster. Survi­ving Members of the 39th Ohio Veteran Volunteer Infantry", Cincinnati Ohio 1893).

 

The regiment was deployed in column by division and the regimental flag and banner were unfurled, giving the rebels a target for ai­ming their guns and getting the correct range. They were not slow in taking advantage of same and throw shells and shrapnels, thick and fast. General Pope noticing the colors were unfurled, dispatched a staff officer to furl same - this order was given to Major Noyes who was in command of the regiment, who, straightening himself up in his saddle, and in his sonorious and stentorian voice said: "Furl those colors - furl those colors! Never - never!" At this moment a fresh shower of shells came, and they closer than the others - bursting immediately in front and rear of the regiment - suffice it to say, the Major at once, without any further ceremony, gave the order to furl "Old Glory." (vgl. The 39th OVI an Major Noyes at New Madrid (Exzerpt from "Roster. Surviving Members of the 39th Ohio Veteran Volunteer Infantry", Cincinnati Ohio 1893).

44th Regiment Ohio Infantry:

 

History:

Organized in October, 1861, under Colonel Samuel A. Gilbert, it moved into West Virginia and operated until September, 1862 - ha­ving frequent engagements with the enemy - when it moved to Kentucky. In December the men were mounted as cavalry and opera­ted against John Morgan. It joined Burnside's advance into East Tennessee, and in January, 1864, the Regiment re-enlisted as veterans providing it should be mounted as cavalry. When it again assembled, after a furlough home' it was designated as the 8th. Ohio Caval­ry; in the sketch of which organization, its further history will be found.

Die Division Stanley war hierbei am äußersten linken Flügel der US-Front eingesetzt, wo sie praktisch in der Luft hing. Gegen diesen Flügel erfolgte der CS-Angriff von Gen Hood mit den Divi­sionen Stewart und Stevenson mit dem Ziel Sherman‘s Army zu flankieren und sie von ihren rückwärtigen Verbindungen nach Snake Creek Gap abzuschneiden. Der Angriff wurde erst im letzten Moment, nachdem die US-Front bereits zerbrochen war, durch Captain Simonson‘s Artillery im direkten Beschuß zusammen geschossen (vgl.

Während Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign 1864 gehörte die 52nd Ohio Infantry unter LtCol Charles W. Claney zur 3rd Brigade Col Da­niel H. McCook 2nd Division BrigGen Jefferson C. Davis, XIV Army Corps MajGen John M. Palmer, Army of the Cumberland (vgl. B & L, vol. IV, S. 285).

 

History:

Organized in August, 1862, under Colonel Dan McCook (früherer Partner von Sherman's Rechtsanwaltskanzlei in Kansas; vgl. Cast­el: Decision, a.a.O., S. 126), it immediately went to the field, operating in Kentucky against the invasion of Bragg. After the battle of Perryville the Regiment performed garrison duty at Nashville until March, 1863; moved into Alabama in September and then to Chickamauga, where it performed good service in tbat sanguinary battle. It stormed Mission Ridge with Sherman, and followed Bragg's retreating army to Ringgold; turning again it marched into East Tennessee to the relief of Knoxville. In May the Regiment joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign and fought at Dalton, Resaca, Peach Tree Creek, Kenesaw Mountain, Atlanta and Jonesboro. At Kenesaw Colonel McCook was mortally wounded. From Atlanta the 52d moved with Sherman to the sea, thence through the Caroli­na's, and was mustered out at Washington June 3d, 1865.

Das Regiment war 1862 frisch aufgestellt und bestand weitgehend aus Soldaten aus den südöstlichen Counties von Ohio; 3 Co’s stammten aus Kentucky (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 156).

 

Im Frühjahr 1862 und im Battle of Shiloh gehörte die 53rd Ohio Infantry zur 3rd Brigade Col Jesse Hildebrand 5th Division BrigGen William T. Sherman in Grant's Army of the Tennessee (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 320, 131; Grant, U. S.: The Opposing Forces at Shiloh; in: B&L, vol. I, a.a.O., S. 538); das Camp des Regiments befand sich am 6.4.1862 bei Rhea’s Field südöstlich von Shiloh Church (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 156 mit Karte S. 165).

 

Das Regiment stieß am 4.6.1862, zwei Tage vor der Schlacht von Shiloh auf starke CS-Kräfte und meldete dies dem Divisions­kommandeur Sherman; Sherman ließ daraufhin antworten: "There is no enemy closer than Corinth" (vgl. Daniel: Sliloh, a.a.O., S. 137); am Samstag 5.4.1862 nachts, am Vorabend der Schlacht von Shiloh, entdeckte das Regiment CS-Scouts, woraufhin Col Appler eine nicht vom Divisionskommando nicht genehmigte Aufklärung der 53rd Ohio Infantry südlich Rhea's Field anordnete (vgl. Da­niel, a.a.O., S. 156). Bei Angriffsbeginn am 6.4.1862 wurde das Regiment von der 6th Mississippi Infantry angegriffen, die 70,5% Verlu­ste erlitt. Col Appler verlor dennoch die Nerven, befahl den Rückzug und flüchtete (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 159).

Im Battle of Chancellorsville erhielt Devens als Kommandeur der Division Devens / XI. Army Corps frühzeitig Meldungen vom Umgehungsmarsch des CS-Corps Jackson, der mit 30000 Mann in den Rücken des XI. US- Corps (8800 Mann) stieß. Captain (Ma­jor) Rodolphus Robbins (s. Rollins), Befehlshaber der Vorposten des 55th Ohio Infantry Regiment sandte zwischen 11 und 4 Uhr drei Boten zum Divisionsstab der Div. Devens, die Jackson Ankunft meldeten. US-Commander XI. Corps O. O Howard hielt ein Durch­queren der Wildnis auf der Westseite von Chancellorsville für ausgeschlossen. Das Corps Jackson, das mit 30000 Mann, über 100 Geschützen, starker Kavallerie, auf ganz schmalen Straßen vorrückte, bewegte sich sehr langsam, stieß gegen 11:00 mit seiner Vorhut auf die US-Vorposten. Aber es dauerte bis gegen 17:00, bis Jackson's Truppen die Ausgangsstellung zum Angriff erreicht hatten (vgl. Kaufmann: Deutsche im amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg, a.a.O., S. 354-356).

Im Frühjahr 1862 und im Battle of Shiloh gehörte das Regiment zur 3rd Brigade Col Jesse Hildebrand 5th Division BrigGen William T. Sherman in Grant’s Army of the Tennessee. Das Regiment war unter der Führung von LtCol Americus V. Rice (der Regiments­kommandeur Col Mungen war erkrankt) am 6.4.1862 morgens bei Beginn der Schlacht in der Divisionsfront rechts eingesetzt (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 157 mit Karte S. 165)

 

Gegen 7:30 wehrte die 57th Ohio ca 30 Minuten lang zusammen mit der 53rd Ohio Infantry den Angriff von Cleburne’s Brigade

auf der Nordseite der Shiloh Branch des Owl Creek am nördlichen Rea Field ab; als die 53rd Ohio schließlich sich auf Befehl von Col Appler (dem die Nerven durchgingen) den Rückzug antrat zog sich die 57th Ohio nach schweren Verlusten nach Norden zurück und zog sich auf die anschließende Höhe bei Waterhouse’s Battery zurück (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 159-160 mit Karte S. 165). Bei der Fortsetzung des CS-Angriffs durch das I. Army Corps MajGen Leonidas Polk mit der 1st Division BrigGen Charles Clark wurde die 57th Ohio Infantry gegen 8:30 von der 12th und 13th Tennessee Infantry angegriffen und 500 yards zurückgedrängt (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 168). Bei den weiteren massierten CS-Angriffen gegen 9:30 durch die nach vorn geworfene 2nd Division MajGen Benjamin F. Cheatham 1st Brigade BrigGen Bushrod R. Johnson mit Blythe's Mississippi Regiment und der 154th Tennes­see Infantry brach die 57th Ohio Infantry schließlich zusammen (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 169).

Organized October 1, 1861, under Colonel J.P. Fyffe, it went into the field soon after under General Nelson in Eastern Kentucky. In December it joined Buell's army, and in the spring of 1862 moved to the relief of Grant at Shiloh, fighting through the whole of the second day. It participated in the siege of Corinth, and after the evacuation marched into Northern Alabama. In August it began its race with Bragg through Tennessee and Kentucky, reaching Louisville September 25th, and again pursued Bragg southward, partici­pating in the battle of Stone River. It opened the fight at Chickamauga and contested every inch of ground against overwhelming numbers. In November the Regiment assaulted Mission Ridge, and afterwards marched for Knoxville. It joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign in the spring of 1864, taking active part in all the battles and skirmishes to the end. Its three years term having expired in September, it was ordered to Nashville, where the men were mustered out October 31, 1864.

Im Frühjahr 1862 und im Battle of Shiloh gehörte das Regiment unter Col Rodney *Mason zur 2nd Brigade Col David Stuart 5th Di­vision BrigGen William T. Sherman in Grant’s Army of the Tennessee.

 

Im Battle of Shiloh flüchtete die 71st Ohio Infantry direkt nach Feuereröffnung. Mason sprach nach der Schlacht mit Tränen in den Augen bei Grant vor, und bat um eine neue Chance. Grant kam der Bitte nach und beauftragte Mason's 71st Ohio Infantry mit der Si­cherung von Fort Donelson und der Stadt *Clarksville (vgl. Grant: Memoirs, a.a.O., S. 215). Am 22.8.1862 kam es zu einem CS-Guerilla Überfall auf den US Stützpunkt Clarksville, wo 6 Companies der 71st Ohio Infantry unter Col Rodney Mason stationiert wa­ren. Der ängstliche Mason ergab sich und seine Truppen ohne Gegenwehr (vgl. Catton, a.a.O., S. 305, 520 Anm. 2; vgl. Grant: Me­moirs, a.a.O., S. 215; OR XVI, Part 1, S. 862-63, 865, 868-69 ). Mason wies seine Untergebenen in Fort Donelson ebenfalls zur Übergabe an, was diese jedoch verweigerten (vgl. Grant: Memoirs, a.a.O., S. 215).

History:

Under Colonel Charles R. Woods recruiting began for this Regiment as early as September, 1861, and the organization was comple­ted February 9, 1862, with 962 officers and men. Seven companies went out from Licking county, one from Columbiana and two from Stark. The Regiment entered the field in February, 1862, and was in the battle of Fort Donelson six days after leaving Ne­wark. It participated, the whole of the second day, in the battle of Shiloh supporting batteries and pursuing the enemy. It moved upon Co­rinth with Halleck's army, and after the evacuation marched to Memphis. In July it moved to Helena, Arkansas, joining General Cur­tis' army, and in August formed part of an expedition under Colonel C.R. Woods to the vicinity of Vicksburg. where it suprised a Re­bel Regiment, capturing many prisoners; a Rebel transport with 7,000 stand of arms also fell into the hands of this expedition. In Oc­tober the 76th went to Missouri, and in December joined Sherman's first assault upon Vicksburg. On January 11, 1863, it suc­cessfully charged the Rebel works at Arkansas Post, losing seventy men. It operated with Grant about Vicksburg and joined in the grand move­ment to the rear of Vicksburg, fighting at Jackson and through the whole siege. In October it moved to Memphis and across the coun­try in time to assault Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge and Ringgold. At the latter place it lost heavily. It followed Sherman's victo­rious army through to Atlanta, fighting all the way. On July 22d, it charged the Rebels and recaptured a battery. T he Regiment mar­ched to the sea, through the Carolinas, on to Richmond and marched in the review at Washington. It then moved to Louisville and was discharged July 24, 1865. The 76th participated in 47 battles and moved 9,625 miles. On the field and in the hos­pitals 351 died. In battle 241 were wounded. It had over 1500 men in its organization and mustered out only 400 men at the end of the war.

83th Regiment Ohio Infantry:

 

History:

Organized August 22, 1862, at Camp Dennison, by Colonel Frederick W. Moore. The Regiment moved into Kentucky and participated in the defense of Cincinnati. After campaigning in Kentucky it moved into Tennessee and Mississippi later in the year. It par­ticipated in the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post. At the latter place the colors were riddled completely and more than one fifth of the men were killed or wounded. It took part in Grant's Vicksburg campaign taking part in the assaults on the Rebel lines. In August, 1863, the Regiment moved to Louisiana and took part in the Teche campaign. Early in 1864 it took part in the Red River campaign. The regiment was consolidated with the 48th Ohio late in the year and kept its designation. After participating in the cam­paign for Mobile in 1865 it moved to Galveston and performed guard duty. The Regiment returned to Cincinnati on the 10th of Au­gust 1865 and was mustered out.

Overview:

Organized August 29, 1862, under Colonel Joseph W. Vance, it left for the field September 1st and entered Kentucky to resist the ad­vance of Kirby Smith.

On the 11th day of January, 1863, it took an active part in the battle of Ar­kansas Post, with a loss of 36 men, and returned to Young's Point, La., the same month. Here it worked with Grant's army in the ope­rations about Vicksburg, marching to the rear of that stronghold, and taking part in the siege. After the surrender it marched to Jack­son, then back to Vicksburg, where it embarked for Louisiana. The Regiment participated in the battle of Grand Coteau, then moved to Texas, and in March, 1864, entered the Red River campaign, fighting at Sabine Cross Road with considerable loss. Among the kil­led was the gallant Colonel Vance. In July it went to Alabama and took part in the siege operations which resulted in the fall of Forts Gains and Morgan, and in April, 1864, participated in the capture of Mobile, where it was mustered out July 7, 1865.

On the 8th of October it took part in the battle of Perryville, sustaining the fearful loss of 230 in killed and wounded, inclu­ding Colonel Webster, killed early in the action. In February the Regiment moved to Nashville and operated under General Rose­crans. In September it fought at Chickamauga, losing 50 men out of 200 in action. In November it was with Sherman at Mission Ridge and soon after marched to the relief of Knoxville. The Regiment participated in the Atlanta campaign and was in action at Buz­zard's Roost, Resaca, Rome, Dallas, Kenesaw, Peach Tree Creek and Jonesboro.

The 120th fought at Vicksburg, Red River, Arkan­sas Post and Port Gibson until it was dissolved in 1864 after an ambush decimated the unit. There were no original histories done by this unit after the war (probably because so many died). This details Buchwalter's time in this unit and it is unique in that the focus is on everyday life rather than the bloody details of battles

Collection consists of two volumes of a manuscript diary, copied in 1865 of entries Bonsall wrote between May 23, 1861 (his 16th birthday) and 1865. Conti­nues the diary sporatically after the war, with entries indicating his marriage in 1876 and the birth of his daughter in 1877. Bonsall writes in detail about his regiment's movements throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Virginia during the war (particularly 1863 and 1864), but they never engaged in a battle with the Confederates. Bonsall also writes about working as a mason building dormitories for a new college in Berea, Kentucky, in 1869. (Virginia Tech, Univ. Libraries, Special Collections: Civil War guide.

142th Ohio Infantry Regiment:

 

In the summer of 1864, Ohio's Governor Blough called for 35,000 volunteers. These men were to serve for 90 days and then be discharged. Under a volunteer status they were only to be used in case the need arose to protect the home front. However, it soon be­came apparent that troops were needed to perform routine guard and picket duty for the various campaigns. So, the regiment was na­tionalized. On May 12, 1864 a group of 845 men from Knox County were mustered into the 142nd Regiment of the National Guard.

 

The One Hundred and Forty Second Regiment's activities according to Compendium of the War of the Rebellion, Vol. 2, Dayton, Ohio, By Frederick H. Dyer is very sketchy. Ohio in the War: Her statesmen, H Generals and Soldiers, Vol 2. Cincinnati, Ohio, by Whitelaw Reid is more detailed. These two sources plus the Analysis of U.S. War Department, War of the Rebellion, A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Washington, 1880-1901 all give a better picture of what happened for 100 days of active duty of the 142nd. The Regiment was organized at Camp Chase, Ohio, and mustered in May or 13, 1864, depen­ding on the source. [ editor's note: The regiment was composed of the 22 Battalion, OH National Guard, from Knox County; 68 Bat­talion, OH National Guard, from Williams County; and a part c the 69 Battalion OH National Guard, from Coshocton County.]

 

Most of the following was taken from Ohio in the War.

" On the 14th ( the 142nd) was marched through the streets of Columbus to the State Arsenal, where it was supplied with Springfield muskets. Thence it took cars (railroad) to Martinsburg, Virginia, (now West Virginia) where it remained drilling until the 19th of May and then left for Washington City; but meeting with detention at Harper's Ferry, on account of the bridge being destroyed at that point, it did not reach the capital until the 21st."

 

According to the Official Record on May 22, correspondence from Brigadier General G.A. DeRussy to Lt. Col. J.H. Taylor, Chief of Staff and Assistant Adjutant-General " Colonel: Since the departure of Tannatt's and Abbot's brigades and the Ninth New York Artil­lery, I have assigned the troops reporting to me, and exchanged some of the Second Pennsylvania and Tenth New York Artillery, as follows: From Fort Smith t' Fort Albanly and interior works all included, Col. John C. Lee 164th Ohio, commanding 9 officers and 486 (men); 2nd Pennsylvania Artillery, 145th and 146th Ohio about 1700 (men). From Richmond to Rogers an all included, Colonel Piper, 10th New York Artillery, distributed 16th Indiana [Battery] and 3rd Massachusetts; in Scott and Berry, 166th, 136th, and 142nd Ohio, Colonel Gibson's command consists of two battalions of his regiment, one company 13th New York Cavalry.

 

In a footnote to this May 22, 1864, order from Headquarters, Arlington, VA. the 2nd Brigade was assigned the following forts "...at Battery Rodgers, and Forts Barnard, Berry, Ellsworth, Farnsworth, Garesche, Lyon, O'Rorke, Reynolds, Richardson, Scott, Ward, Weed, Willard, Williams, and Worth. "

Thus, col. William C. Cooper and his 142nd Regiment find themselves at fort Lyon as per the OFFICIAL RECORD and attached to the 2nd Brigade under Col. W. Smith Irwin. In a later listing the second Brigade was changed to the 3rd . General De Russy was commanding all volunteers and he had a tremendous task of assigning the various volunteer groups to units where needed. De Rus­sy's division was made up of several units. The 142nd was marched to Fort Lyon nine miles from Washington. They did not get to the Fort until late at night. There w no quarters so the men made their bed rolls and tried sleeping on the ground; According to Reid's OHIO IN THE WAR" the regiment remained at Fort Lyon, busily engaged in strengthening the fortifications and perfecting it's drill, until the 5th of June when orders were received to report to General Abercrombie at White House Landing on the Pamunkey River. These orders must have percipitated a letter written by Henry L. Curtis, of Mt. Vernon, to his parents and which ultimately ended up in the COLUMBUS JOURNAL a Republican Paper, and then copied in the DEMOCRATIC BANNER.

3rd Ohio Cavalry Regiment:

s. Col Charles B. Seidel

 

History:

Organized in September, 1861, under Colonel Lewis Zahm, for three years service; in the following April it moved with Buell's army through Tennessee. It participated in the siege of Corinth and operated in northern Alabama and Mississippi during the summer of 1862, and in September followed in the pursuit of Bragg through Tennessee and Kentucky. In October a portion of the Regiment was surrounded near Ashland Ky. by John Morgan's forces and obliged to surrender. Afterwards, the remaining portion with Cavalry and Infantry, attacked Morgan's camp, capturing his equipage and many prisoners. The Regiment during the winter had many engage­ments with the enemy, and the following summer advanced with Rosecrans' army, fighting at Chickamauga and elsewhere with mar­ked success. In January, 1864, the Regiment re-enlisted, and in May moved to Decatur Alabama, became the advance guard of Blair's 17th Corps and then joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign (Col. Charles B. Seidel [vgl. Evans, Sherman's Horsemen S. 72]), ta­king part in the battles of Kenesaw, Peach Tree Creek and Decatur. It joined Stoneman's raid, and after the fall of Atlanta pursued Hood north, fighting at Franklin and Nashville. Again it followed Hood south and afterwards joined Wilson's raid, losing heavily at Selma. One detachment rode through to the Gulf. The Regiment was discharged August 14, 1865.

13th Ohio Battery (Myers’s Battery):

s. Captain John B. *Myers;

 

Während der Shiloh Campaign gehörte die Battery zur 4th Division BrigGen Stephen A. Hurlbutt in Grant’s Army of the Tennessee. Teilnahme am Battle of Shiloh. Die Battery fuhr im Battle of Shiloh am 6.4.1862 gegen 9:30 über die Wheatfield Road in der Nähe von Sarah Bell’s Field auf, wobei die Battery gegen den Befehl des Divisionskommandeurs zu weit vorne abgeprotzt wurde, statt wie befohlen nördlich auf einer leichten Anhöhe. Die Battery kam deshalb sofort unter schweren Beschuß durch die CS-Florida Battery, ein Munitionswagen erhielt einen Treffer, was eine große Explosion auslöste. Es gab mehrere Verwundete und einen Toten, die Be­dienungsmannschaften flohen. Die Geschütze wurden aufgegeben und gingen mit einer Ausnahme verloren. Divisionskommandeur Hurlbutt war derart wütend, daß er nach der Schlacht die Battery auflöste und Captain Mayers in Haft nahm. Eine Untersuchungs­kommission die auf Anordnung von Ohio-Governor Benjamin Thomas eingesetzt wurde, sprach Captain Myers frei. In der Nach­kriegszeit äußerte sich Captain Felix Robertson, der Batteriechef der Florida Battery, und beschuldigte den Divisionskommandeur Hurlbutt, für den schlechten Einsatz verantwortlich zu sein (vgl. Daniel: Shiloh, a.a.O., S. 193 mit Karte S. 194).
