Freeman. This regiment was organized at Richmond and was mustered in Sept. 16, 1861. It left the state a few days later, went into camp until the latter part of Feb., 1862, when it marched to Nashville with the Army of the Ohio. It moved to the Tennessee river in March and was in the battle of Shiloh, losing 9 killed and 38 wounded. It remained in camp there until the movement was made against Corinth, and was in the siege of that place until the evacuation, when it moved into northern Alabama and thence to Nashville. It joined in the pursuit of Bragg through Kentucky, then returned to Nashville, and moved with Rosecrans to Murfreesboro. At Stone's river it lost 24 killed, 90 wounded and 18 missing, and was in camp at Murfreesboro until May, when it marched with Palmer's division for Chattanooga. It took part in the battle of Chickamauga, where it lost 14 killed, 110 wounded and 13 missing. It was then located at Chattanooga, Whitside and Tyner's station, until March, 1864. Part of the regiment reenlisted and went to Indiana on furlough in February. The regiment moved with Sherman's army in the Atlanta campaign, taking part in nearly every skirmish and engagement in that movement. The non-veterans left for home Aug. 13, to muster out, and the veterans and recruits were organized into a battalion, with Capt. John Swisher in command. This battalion moved with the 4th corps in pursuit of Hood into northern Alabama, then proceeded to Nashville, where it was engaged in the battle in December, and joined in pursuit of the enemy to Huntsville, Ala., and thence to Chattanooga. In June, 1865, it was sent to New Orleans, and was transferred to the battalion of the 30th regiment, forming Co. H of that battalion. It was stationed in the interior of Texas until Nov. 25, 1865, when it was mustered out. Col. Grose was appointed brigadier-general in Aug., 1864, and Lieut. - Col. Carey was commissioned colonel. The original strength of the regiment was 1,023; gain by recruits, 133; reenlistments, 21; total, 1,177. Loss by death, 234; desertion, 43; unaccounted for, 12.
