SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR.
pp. 580 - 582

(From a History of the Ohio National Guard, by the Cleveland Plain Dealer Publishing Co.)

      When the war with Spain was declared, Co. L, of the Ohio National Guard, enlisted at Wapakoneta, Ohio, was ordered to rendezvous at Kenton, where they were enrolled for a volunteer service, April 25, 1898.  Four days later they were ordered to the general rendezvous for Ohio troops at Camp Bushnell, Columbus.  The company went into camp at this place April 29, and was mustered into the volunteer service as Company L, of the Second Regiment O. V. U S. I., May 10, 1898.  On May 10, 1898, the regiment was ordered to Camp George H. Thomas, Chickamauga Park, Ga., where they were brigaded with the 1st Pennsylvania and the 14th Minnesota as the 3d Brigade, and Division.  Col. Charles A. Van Duzee, of the 14th Minnesota, was placed in temporary command of the brigade, and was later succeeded by Col. Kuert of the 2nd Ohio, who retained the command until succeeded by Brigadier Gen. Rosser, the regular appointee, to the command of the brigade.  The division was under the command of Brig. Gen. Arnold who was soon relieved and sent to Cuba, the command reverting to Colonel Van Duzee until Brig. Gen. Poland assumed command.  The 2nd Ohio participated in the grand parade of sixty thousand troops at Chickamauga Park, Ga., and each of the three battalions received from four to five days instruction in target practice during the period of their stay at this general rendezvous for United States troops.  On Aug. 28, the regiment received orders to move to Knoxville, Tenn.  Pursuant to instructions the 2nd Ohio marched to Rossville, Ga., from which point they were transported by rail to their destination.  General Poland died in Nashville, Tenn., after a short illness, and the command of the division passed successively to Generals McKee, Randall and Snyder.  Upon arriving at Knoxville, Col. Van Duzee again assumed command of the brigade and was succeeded by Col. Kuert until Gen. Rosser resumed his command.  The 2nd Ohio remained at Camp Poland, Knoxville, Tenn., until Nov. 15, 1898, when they were ordered to Camp Torrence, Macon, Ga., arriving Nov. 16, 1898.
     The 2nd Ohio was not favored with active service in foreign lands and consequently passed through the regular routine of camp life from the period of its muster in until finally mustered out at Macon, Ga., Feb. 10, 1899.
