Regimental History
Ninety-fourth Infantry. Cols., Joseph W. Frizell, Stephen A. Bassford; Lieut. -Cols., David King, Rue P. Hutchins ; Majs., Charles C. Gibson, William H. Snider. This regiment was organized at Camp Piqua, Aug. 24, 1862, to serve for three years, and 1,010 men were mustered into the service of the United States. Four days later, without uniforms or camp equipage and never having been drilled as a regiment, it was ordered to Kentucky, that state being then invaded by Confederate forces under Kirby Smith. But a veteran regiment could not have behaved better than it did in the affair at Tate's ferry, where it was first under fire and lost 2 men killed and 6 wounded. With the exception of some hard work in the trenches and on fortitications for the defense of Louisville, and a participation in two or three "grand reviews," the regiment had a very easy time until the movement began which resulted in the battle of Perryville and the driving of Bragg's Confederate army from Kentucky. The regiment took a prominent part in the engagement at Perryville, being highly complimented in general orders. It broke camp near Nashville on Christmas day ; was in advance of the army marching on Murfreesboro ; and during the battle of Stone's river was engaged every day from Wednesday until Saturday. It was again in the advance on Tullahoma ; had a skirmish at Dug gap ; and was engaged in the hard-fought battle of Chickamauga. At Lookout mountain and Missionary ridge it again took a prominent part, being in the grand charge upon the ridge. It was with Sherman on the march to Atlanta, taking part in the battles at Resaca, Kennesaw mountain, Chattahoochee river, Peachtree creek, Atlanta and Jonesboro. It marched to the sea and up through the Carolinas, participating in the battle of Bentonville, and after the surrender came marched to Washington. There it was mustered out on June 5, 1865, with an aggregate of 338 men "all that were left of the one thousand and ten !"
