TWENTY-SECOND OHIO INFANTRY

     This regiment was one of the offshoots of the appointment of Major General John C. Fremont to the command of the western department.  Although its ranks were mainly from the Buckeye State, and officered by Ohio men, its place of organization near St. Louis and Missouri gave it for a time the name of "Missouri Thirteenth."  On the twenty-sixth of January, 1862, the regiment received orders to proceed to Cairo, Illinois and there report to Brigadier General Grant.  On its arrival, it was first ordered to Smithland, Kentucky, then toward Fort Henry, from 2hich point an immediate return was ordered.  This lengthy march was the regiment's first experience in field service, and, owning to a sudden change of weather from summer to winter, the initiation was very severe.  The regiment took its first taste of warfare before First Donelson, but the surrender of that work occurred without its having any decisive part to perform.  Its first action of any account was at the battle of Pittsburgh Landing.  During the two days' fight, the regiment loss, in killed and wounded, eighty-nine officers and men.  The brave Lieutenant Colonel St. James fell the first day.  Captain Wright was afterward promoted to fill his place, and Captain Wood to the place of Major C. W. Anderson, resigned.  Surgeon Bell had resigned, and his place was filled by Dr. Henry E. Foote, of Cincinnati.
     Oh July 7, 1862, the Secretary of War issued an order transferring this regiment to the State of Ohio, where it properly belonged, to the named the "Twenty-second." The resignation of both superior officers left the regiment, on the sixteenth of September, under the command of Major Wood.  While at Trenton, Tennessee, a detachment was successful in capturing the notorious guerrilla chief, Colonel Dawson, who afterward died in the State penitentiary at Alton, Illinois.  Following this, we hear of the Twenty-second at Jackson, Corinth, Memphis, Haine's Bluff, Helena, and finally at Little Rock.  In February, 1864, one hundred and five officers and men re-enlisted as veterans, and the regiment received eighty-one recruits.
     October 26, 1864, orders were received that the regiment should report at Camp Dennison, Ohio, to be mustered out of service.  this was completed on the eighteenth of November, after a faithful service of a few days beyond three years.
