PREBLE IN THE WAR OF
THIRTY-FIFTH OHIO INFANTRY
Ohio was organized at Hamilton in August and September of 1861.
Its member were mainly young and intelligent men. At the
beginning it numbered, all told, less than nine hundred men.
The Thirty-fifth participated in some of the skirmishes during
the siege of Corinth, and was among the first to enter the works
at that place. Shortly after commenced the race between
Buell and Bragg, the goal being Louisville. In the
movement on Bragg, the fight at Perryville, and the pursuit to
Crab Orchard, they bore an honorable part. All through the
campaign which began at Murfreesborough and closed at
Chattanooga, this regiment was in the front of the marching and

Colonel Boynton was conspicuous during the

highly commended in the reports of that action. During the
autumn of 1863, the Thirty-fifth lay with other regiments at
Chattanooga and engaged in frequent skirmishes before that
place. They were on the front line at Mission Ridge.
In February, 1864, this regiment was in the first battle of the
Atlanta campaign, at Buzzard's Roost. It was with Sherman
from the initiation of his Atlanta campaign till the expiration
of its term of service, while lying before Atlanta. They
were engaged at Dalton, Rasaca, Pine Mountain, Kenesaw,
Peachtree Creek, and in several other of the fights of that
bloody contest. The mustering out occurred in August,
1864, at Chattanooga. During the three years of service,
its gallant men could say that they had never been driven from a
