SIXTY-NINTH OHIO INFANTRY

     The organization of this regiment took effect early in the year 1862.  April 19th it was ordered to report for duty at Nashville, Tennessee, where it arrived five days after.
     The first action was with Morgan's men near the town of Gallatin.  Here one man was killed.  When Bragg's army attempted a flank movement toward Louisville, the army attempted a flank movement toward Louisville, the Sixty-ninth was left at Nashville as a part of the garrison for the city.  On the thirty-first of December, the first day of the battle of Stone River, the regiment with its brigade was engaged with the enemy, taking position in the advance line of General George H. Thomas' Fourteenth corps.  It became involved in the disaster on the right, and was compelled to fight its way back, suffering severely in killed and wounded.
     January 2d the Sixty-ninth was in the brilliant but desperate charge across Stone river, in which the rebels were driven back with heavy loss.  On June 24, 1863, the Tullahoma campaign began.  It was also in the battle of Mission Ridge, and was among the first to reach the top of the mountain.  Major J. J. Hanna, then in command, received much commendation for his efficient and brave conduct.
     The re-enlistment of the regiment and its succeeding furlough of thirty days but gave new inspiration for work, and on May 14th occurred the engagement with the enemy near Resaca.  Between this time and the fight at Jonesborough we read of several engagements and many killed and wounded.  This battle caused the evacuation of Atlanta, and the National forces occupied that city.
     The regiment participated in the subsequent chase after Hood, after which it returned to Atlanta and joined Sherman's march to the sea.  The last battle in which it had a part occurred near Goldsborough, North Carolina, March 19, 1865.  Then came the march through Richmond, the grand review at Washington, the transfer at Louisville, and lastly the muster out of service, on the seventeenth of July, 1865.
