Colonel William G. Jones
Killed at Chickamauga
HistoryLieutenant Colonel Clark organized this Regiment in August, 1861, and George Crook, Captain of the 4th U.S. Infantry, was, at his request, assigned as Colonel. It had some service in 1861-62 in Western Virginia, and during the summer joined the Army of the Potomac, losing Colonel Clark at Antietam. Returning to West Virginia again it soon left Charleston for General Rosecrans army in Tennessee. At Chickamauga it had 70 killed including Colonel Jones and lost heavily again at Mission Ridge. On the expiration of its veteran furlough it again went to Charleston, West Virginia, and took part in the various battles and skirmishes under General Crook. The Regiment was mustered out in Wheeling in July, 1865. The 36th Regiment had two Colonels killed in battle, and lost heavily in men and officers in the many skirmishes as well as battles in which it participated.
