     It will be seen from this that the Eighth Regiment was in seventy-six Battles and Skirmishes.
     The Regiment marched about two thousand two hundred and sixty miles, and was transported by rail road and steamship, two thousand three hundred and eighty miles, making an aggregate of 4,640 miles traveled during its term of service.
     Including Field and Staff Officers, the rolls of the Regiment bear the names of 993 members, originally 45 officers, and 944 enlisted men; of these 198 died or were killed in battle, 62 had been transferred to various organizations, 42 to Fourth Ohio Battalion, and 340 discharged for promotion, wounds and disability.
     The deserter's list shows a few names, but as most of these men returned to duty or have had the disability, arising from the record annulled since the war, by authority of the War Department, it would be improper and unjust to mention any names at this time.
