HistoryOrganized January 23, 1862, by consolidation of battalions of 22d and 63d Regiments, under Colonel John W. Sprague, it immediately took the field and joined General Pope in Missouri. At New Madrid it was brigaded with other Ohio Regiments known as the Ohio Brigade, and took part in all the operations resulting in the surrender of Island No.10. In April it joined General Halleck's forces before Corinth. After the evacuation it operated in Northern Alabama, and participated in the battles of Iuka and Corinth under Rosecrans. During the year 1863 it operated mostly in Northern Alabama and Tennessee. In January, 1864, the Regiment re-enlisted for three years and went to Ohio on veteran furlough. In May it joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign and shared in all the battles to the end, when it marched to the sea and through the Carolinas. It took part in the grand review at Washington, and went to Louisville, where it mustered out July 8, 1865.
