REGIMENT OHIO VOLUNTEER INFANTRY

     The One Hundred and Sixty-first Ohio, in the one hundred days' service, was composed of the Seventeenth Battalion, from Tuscarawas County; the Forty-third Battalion, from Morgan County; the Ninety-third Battalion, from Noble County, and one company from the Fifty-eighth Battalion, from Hancock County, all troops of the Ohio National Guard. The regiment was mustered into the service May 9, 1864:, with the following officers: Oliver F. Taylor, colonel; George S. Corner, lieutenant-colonel, and Samuel B. Fugh, major. The regiment was immediately ordered to Cumberland, Mel., where it arrived May 12. The regiment" moved to Martinsburg, W. Va., and on the 4th of June companies A, B, D, F and H were sent up the Shenandoah Valley with other troops with a supply train for Hunter's army, which was then supposed to be near Staunton. But on arriving there it was found that Hunter had advanced; however, he was finally overtaken at Lexington on the 11th. The troops remained with the army until it reached the vicinity of Lynchburg, then turned over the supplies and proceeded back to Martinsburg, with many sick and wounded and a train of over one hundred and fifty wagons and ambulances; with one hundred and fifty prisoners and several hundred contrabands, they left the army June 17, and began their return march through a hostile and mountainous country. They were supplied with only three days' rations of crackers. Arriving at Beverly on the 28th they rested two days, then proceeded to Webster. The entire distance marched was nearly five hundred miles. At "Webster they took the cars for Martinsburg, where they arrived July 2. Thence they marched to Hainesville, where the remainder of the regiment was then encamped in charge of a corral of one hundred and twenty-five teams and wagons. They arrived in camp at about eight o'clock, p. m., and before supper could be prepared orders were received for the regiment to return to Martinsburg. Reaching that place at daylight the next day and remaining in line of battle until eleven o'clock, the regiment fell back through Shepherdstown and Sharpsburg to Maryland Heights. From July 6 to July 8 the regiment was continually engaged in skirmishing; after this it went into position in Stone Fort. It afterward aided in defending Maryland Heights until the rebels were driven from the Shenandoah August 25. The One Hundred and Sixty-first was ordered to Ohio, and September 2, 1864, was mustered out at Camp Chase.
