Regimental History
Tenth Infantry MISSOURI (3-YEARS)

Tenth Infantry. -- Cols., George R. Todd. Samuel A. Holmes, F. C. Deimling, Lieut.-Cols., S. A. Holmes, John D. Foster, Leonidas Homey, Christian Hoppel; Majs., Aaron Brown, Leonidas Homey, F. C. Deimling, Joseph Walker.

The regiment rendezvoused at the St. Louis arsenal on Aug. 1, 1861, under command of Col. Chester Harding. While completing the organization it was employed in guarding the southwest branch of the Pacific railroad from the attacks of guerrillas.

On Nov. 19, 1861, three companies of the 21st regiment, also in process of formation, was consolidated with the 10th, which was then mustered into service with 869 officers and men. In Dec., 1861, the regiment was engaged in the pursuit of the Confederate force engaged in destroying the North Missouri railroad, following them through Warren, Callaway, Boone and Audrain counties.

It was then stationed at Warrenton and High Hill until April, 1862, when its strength was further augmented by the addition of part of Foster's battalion and ordered to report to Gen. Halleck at Pittsburg landing, Tenn. As a part of the 3rd
division, Army of the Mississippi, under Gen. Hamilton, it took part in the siege of Corinth and the battle of Farmington, Miss.; was then in several minor engagements during the summer.

It was present at the battles of Iuka and Corinth; with Grant's expedition into central Mississippi, then moved to Memphis, Tenn., and during the winter was stationed at Germantown, Tenn., on the Memphis & Charleston railroad. In the spring of 1863 the division was made the 7th division, 17 corps, and under Gen. McPherson was engaged in all the principal actions in which that corps participated in the Vicksburg campaign.

After the reduction of Vicksburg it joined the army at Chattanooga, Tenn., and fought with its customary valor at Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. Early in 1864 it was sent into Alabama to guard the Memphis & Charleston railroad, and there engaged in several skirmishes with detachments of the enemy.

In June it was contentrated at Huntsville, Ala., transported to Kingston, GA, and in July was ordered to Resaca to hold the works covering the railroad bridge at that point and a construction camp a few miles north, meeting and defeating the enemy several times while on this service.

Owing to the method by which the regiment was organized, it was mustered out at different times, part in August and the last detachment in Oct. 1864.

After many years of trying to locate Thomas Shamblin's (Cena Wickham's son) whereabouts throughout his life we finally found most of Cena's children were raised by the Wickhams, Cena's brothers and sisters, in Ohio and not by their father and his second wife. Some of them in later years did go to where he lived." - - -
