OHIO SIXTY-SECOND INFANTRY (Three Years)
Sixty-second Infantry. - Col., Francis B. Pond; Lieut.-Cols., Clemens F. Steele, Samuel B. Taylor, Henry R. West; Majs., Delafield Dubois, William Edwards, Francis M. Kahler, Thomas J. Platt. This regiment was organized at Zanesville, McConnelsville and Somerton from Sept. 17 to Dec. 24, 1861, to serve for three years. In Jan., 1862, it went by rail to Cumberland, Md., and there joined the forces under the command of Brig-Gen. Lander, then in camp at Patterson's creek. After a summer spent in strenuous activity in Virginia, in December it made several reconnaissances from Suffolk to Blackwater, in one of which a heavy skirmish was had with the enemy. It then went by transports to South Carolina and in the desperate affair at Fort Wagner in July, 1863, it lost 150 men killed, wounded and missing.
In January, 1864, it re-enlisted and received the usual 30 days' veteran furlough. During the spring, summer and fall of 1864 it was almost continually under fire - not a movement could be made without encountering the enemy. The men of the regiment were compelled to keep an incessant vigil and for weeks at a time dared not throw off their accouterments. In the spring of 1865 the regiment took part in the assault on the Confederate works below Petersburg, and on April 2 it was one of the foremost regiments in the assault on Fort Gregg. It also participated in the action at Appomattox Court House.
About Sept. 1, 1865, it was consolidated with the 67th Ohio, and thereafter lost its identity - the name of the 67th being retained.
