25TH OHIO VET.
VOLUNTEER INFANTRY
IN THE WAR FOR THE UNION
Author: Edward C. Culp
(Topeka, Kan. G. W. Crane & Co., printers & binders, 1885)

 

     THE matter contained in the following pages was prepared while we were yet in the field, upon the days immediately following our marches and battles, while in camp or bivouac, or during the long season of rest upon Folly and Hilton Head islands.

     I have revised it twice sine the war, but still feel as if I was giving a very unsatisfactory history of the gallant old Regiment, and regret that its preparation has not fallen into abler hands.

     Our Regiment was raised from so many portions of the State, that we have been unable to meet in annual reunions, which would have been the means of correcting many errors, but I have endeavored to get as many names as possible, with the present post-office address, and will have them added in an appendix to this volume.

     I am indebted to many of the old comrades for information asked for a different times during the past two years and still as for correction in names and dates, which will be noted for a second edition. 

     This book is only a plain record of events, with no attempt at humor, and will only be of interest to those who participated in the changing fortunes of the Regiment, or those others whose sons and brothers went out with us, never to return to this life.
