From The History of Clark County, Ohio
Chicago: W.H. Beers & Co., 1881


This Company was organized at Camp Piqua, Miami County, Ohio, under the immediate supervision of Col. Joseph W. Frizell. The officers were appointed on the 22d of July, 1872, and, so vigorously was the recruiting prosecuted, that in just one month, 1,010 men were mustered into the United States service.

On the 28th of August, without uniforms or camp equipage, and never having been drilled as a regiment, it was ordered to Kentucky to resist the approaching columns of Kirby Smith. The colors of the Ninety-fourth are emblazoned with the battle names of Hoover's Gap, Dug Gap, Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge, Sherman's march to Atlanta, Buzzard's Roost, Resaca, Kingston, Pumpkin-Vine Creek, Kenesaw Mountain, and some half a dozen others. It was the first body of troops to enter Raleigh, N.C., was in the grand review at Washington, where it was mustered out on the 6th of June, 1865, with an aggregate of 338 men, "All that were left of them, left of" one thousand and ten.

Clark County contributed Companies A and G of this regiment. Col. David King went out as Major of this corps, and was promoted Lieutenant Colonel.
