Stough; Lieut.- Col., Marcellus A. Leeds; Maj., Zedekiah South. This
regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, May 10, 1864, to serve for 100

Clermont county, and a part of the 35th regiment, from Clarke county. It
immediately started for Harper's Ferry, W. Va., and the greater part of
May and June was consumed by the regiment in performing guard duty at
Harper's Ferry and along the line of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. In
the latter part of June it was ordered to join Gen. Butler's forces at
Bermuda Hundred and hold itself subject to his orders. A detachment of
the regiment was engaged with the enemy at Hammack's mills, North river,
W. Va., on July 3, and lost several officers and men killed and wounded.
It was mustered out on Sept. 9, 1864.
