Clark County's Civil War Soldiers

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


The Forty-fifth O.V.I. was mustered into service on the 19th of August, 1862. It was first engaged at Dutton's Hill, March 3, 1863, next at "Captain West's." It was one of the regiments sent up from the front to help capture John Morgan. During this movement, the forty-fifth lost one man, with several wounded. At Philadelphia, Tenn., several were killed and wounded, and many captured by the enemy. In Knoxville, at Bear's Station, Resaca, in many of the actions which marked the Atlanta campaign; at Lovejoy's Station, New Hope Church, Dallas, Lost Mountain, in front of Kenesaw Mountain, and many other points, the Forty-fifth upheld the standard of the nation, and each man made good the oath that he had taken at the outset, "against all their enemies whatsoever." In November, 1864, the fourth Corps, to which the regiment belonged, participated in the battle of Franklin, and afterward in the two days' fight in front of Nashville. The regiment was mustered out on the 15th of June, 1865, within two months of the expiration of its term of service.
