Adjt. Arthur T. Hamilton 9th O.V.C.
Mortally wounded at Aiken, February 11, 1865
HistoryThis Regiment was organized in December, 1862, under Colonel William D. Hamilton, for three years service. But four companies, designated as First Battalion, 9th O.V.C., were organized, and in April, 1863, moved into Kentucky, skirmishing until June, when it moved into East Tennessee. In July the Battalion returned to Kentucky, and in August again marched to East Tennessee under Burnside. When Knoxville was taken, Colonel Hamilton became Provost Marshal and the Battalion performed patrol and guard duty in the suburbs. The Second Battalion of the Regiment was organized November 6th, 1863, and with the First soon after moved to Athens, Ala., to patrol the Tennessee River. In April, 1864, thirty-nine of the men were captured by the enemy and sent to Andersonville, where twenty-five died. In July a portion of the Regiment raided the Montgomery road, destroying twenty-five miles, and then joined Sherman near Atlanta. After the fall of Atlanta it marched to the sea, engaging the enemy at Waynesboro. It marched through the Carolinas, fighting at Aiken, Averysboro, Bentonville and Raleigh, and after Johnston's surrender returned north and was finally mustered out August 2d, 1865.
