EIGHTY-FIRST OHIO INFANTRY

    The regiment was raised by Colonel Morton, formerly of the Twentieth Ohio, under orders from General Fremont, as an "Independent rifle regiment," but the organization of that having failed, it was filled up as the Eighty-first Ohio infantry.  It rendezvoused at Benton barracks, near St. Louis, in August and September, 1861, and moved to the field during the latter month.  It endured much the ensuing winter in pursuit of the enemy and while guarding the North Missouri railroad.  In March, 1862, it was moved by steamer to Pittsburgh Landing, and took part in the battle there.  In the subsequent action of Corinth, it lost eleven killed, forty-four wounded, and three missing.  Its after career brought it into the campaigns through northern Alabama and Tennessee, and to Atlanta with its bloody battles; the triumphant marches to the sea and through the Carolinas and Virginia to the capital of the nation, where it took part in the grand reviews, and after a brief period of service at Louisville, it was finally mustered out at Camp Dennison, July 21, 1865.  It had been re-organized as a veteran regiment in January, 1864.  During its service thirty-four of its members were killed on the field, twenty-four died of wounds and one hundred and twenty-one of disease, and one hundred and thirty-six were discharged for disability.
