20th OHIO VOLUNTEER INFANTRY - REORGANIZED

     The Twentieth Regiment, first organized as a three months' regiment, contained after its re-organization a company (Captain Shacklee's) composed principally of Noble County men. The re-organization took place at Camp King, near Covington, Ky., October 21, 1861, under the command of Colonel Charles Whittlesey, a graduate of West Point. During the following winter the regiment was employed in guarding batteries near Covington and Newport. During this time four companies w ere sent to the vicinity of Warsaw, Ky., and February 11, 1862, all of the regiment, except Co. K, embarked for the Cumberland River. Fort Donelson was the first battle in which it participated. After the surrender of the fort, the Twentieth was sent north in charge of prisoners. By March. 16, seven companies had been brought together, and were sent up the Tennessee River. In April it participated in the battle of Pittsburgh Landing, at which place it remained, suffering much from sickness, during the advance on Corinth. Subsequently the regiment served at Bolivar and Inka, and December 4__, entered Ox-ford, Miss., in the second brigade of Logan's division. After the capture of Holly Springs, it turned north, arriving at Memphis, January 28, 1S63, where it received 200 recruits and drafted men. Next serving in Louisiana and Mississippi, May 12th, it took part in an engagement at Raymond, Miss., in which it lost twelve killed and fifty-two wounded. At Champion Hills it was in the thickest of the fight. It was next employed about Vicksburg, in the Yazoo Valley, at Jackson, etc- In January, 1864, two-thirds of the men present re-enlisted, and in February they joined the Meridian expedition, returning to Vicksburg, March 4. The regiment went north on a veteran furlough, rendezvoused at Camp Dennison, May 1, and proceeded to Cairo, Ill., thence to Clifton, Tenn. Marching thence, it joined General Sherman at Ackworth, June 9th. Thenceforth it was with Sherman's army in the Atlanta and Carolina campaigns, and July 18, 1865, was mustered out of service at Columbus, Ohio.
