Infantry units were recruited from all over the state. Those represented in detail here are the ones recruited primarily from northwest Ohio counties and those whose members wrote to local newspapers. More information will be added as it becomes available.
This Regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, Ohio in October 1864 to serve one year. It was ordered to Columbia, TN, where it performed post and garrison duty in the town, and was also engaged in guarding the Tennessee and Alabama Railroad.

The Regiment then fell back to Nashville, and took position in Fort Negley, where it remained during the battle, and on the 25th of December was again ordered to Columbia, and engaged in the usual garrison duties, and in guarding the railroad bridges. It was mustered out June 27, 1865 in accordance with orders from the War Department.
