     Company G was mustered into the United States service at Camp Buckingham, Mansfield, Ohio, November 30, 1865.
     The mortality list was not included in the roll, and, hence, cannot appear here.  It is certain, however, that the company performed arduous duty in the far South, and was considerable dimished by disease and death before its discharge.

THE SIXTY-FIFTH REGIMENT.

     Captain Orlow Smith was promoted to lieutenant colonel, Oct. 10, 1865, and to colonel, Nov. 24, 1865.
     The Sixty-fifth was employed some months, in 1862, in Kentucky, repairing and guarding roads, and then marched into Tennessee to Columbia, and thence to Savannah, Georgia, and from thence to Pittsburgh Landing, and participated in that battle.  It next moved to Corinth, and was at the siege, and returned to Louisville, Kentucky.  It was ordered to march toward Stone River, and was in the battle of Dec. 29, 1862.  In June, 1863, it was ordered to Chattanooga, and participated in that battle.  The Sixty-fifth passed on to Mission Ridge, and took part in that engagement.  Then came the Atlanta campaign - the affair at Lookout Mountain, Resaca, Dallas, Marietta, Kenesaw, Peachtree Creek, and Jonesborough, in which the Sixty-fifth took a part.  On the twenty-ninth of November, it was in the battle of Springifield; on the thirtieth, in the battle of Franklin, and afterwards, in the battle of Nashville.  In June, 1865, the regiment was ordered to Texas, and remained at San Antonio until December, and was ordered to Camp Chase, Ohio, where it was mustered out January 2, 1866.  The Sixty-fifth came out of the service scarred veterans.
