    The Twentieth Ohio was recruited for three months in May, 1861, and reorganized at Camp King, Kentucky, Oct., 21, 1861.  The commanding officer was Col. Charles Whittlesey, of Ohio, who was a graduate of West Point, and had won great distinction as an engineer and geologist in the Superior region.  During the winter of 1861 - 62 the regiment guarded several batteries in the rear of Covington and Newport, Ky., and at one time four companies were sent to quell and insurrection in the region of Warsaw.
     On Feb. 11, 1862, the regiment embarked on the steamers Emma Duncan and Doctor Kane for the Cumberland River.  It reached Fort Donelson on the 14th of Feb., and went under fire the next day.  It marched to the extreme right and went into a reserve position.  After the battle the regiment was ent north in charge of prisoners, and so became greatly scattered.  Soon afterward seven companies were brought together and went up the Tennessee on the expedition to Yellow Creek, on the steamer Continental, on which General Sherman had headquarters.
     On the 6th of April, while on inspection at Adamsville, the regiment heard the guns at Pittsburg Landing, and at 3 p.m. marched to the field and went into position on the right of the army.  It participated in the fight of the next day and is entitled to share in the glory of that victory.  During the engagement it was under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Force, Colonel Whittlesey being in command of a brigade.  During the advance on the Corinth the regiment remained on duty at Pittsburg Landing.  After the fall of Corinth the regiment went to Purdy, where it joined its division, marched to Bolivar, and became a part of that garrison of June 6, 1862.
     On August 30, 1862, the Rebel General Armstrong, with fifteen regiments on an expedition northward, was held in check a whole day by the Twentieth Ohio, a portion of the Seventy-eighth Ohio, and two companies of the Second Illinois Cavalry.  Late in the afternoon two companies G & K, of this regiment were captured by the cavalry charge, but not until they had repulsed two charges.  For their courage on this occasion the officers and troops were highly commended.  The regiment next assisted in driving Price from Iuka on the 20th of September.  On Nov. 28th it marched south from Lagrange in the Second Brigade of Logan's Division, and on the 4th of Dec. 3ntered Oxford, Miss.
     About this time the Seventeenth Army Corps was organized, and Logan's Division became the Third of the corps.  By slow marches the Twentieth reached Memphis on January 28 1863, and was reinforced by two hundred men.  On Feb. 22 the regiment moved down the Mississippi on the steamer Louisiana, landed at Lake Providence, and a few weeks later marched to the relief of Porter's fleet, blockaded in Steele's Bayou, and after three days in the swamps, returned to camp.
     On May 12 the Twentieth deployed in advance of the corps toward Raymond, Mississippi, and while resting with stacked arms, was fired upon from a thicket beyond a stream.  The regiment at once formed and advanced, using the opposite bank of the stream as a breastwork. A severe struggle ensued for an hour, during which the Twentieth was exposed to a cross-fire. Every man stood, firm until the Rebels were compelled to yield. The regiment lost twelve killed and fifty-two wounded. Private Canavan, of Company E, was promoted to a sergeantcy on the field for skilful management of the company after the other officers and sergeants were disabled. Captain Wilson was decorated with the Seventeenth Corps Medal of Honor for gallantry in assembling his skirmishers under the very muzzles of the enemy's guns during the first charge. Lieutenant Weatherby, of Company A, being on the extreme right of the skirmish line with his company, and being cut off from his regiment, assembled his company, and reported to the colonel of the nearest regiment-—the Eighty-first Illinois—and fought as a part of that regiment. The Eighty-first showed their appreciation of its services by giving three hearty cheers for the "Twentieth Ohio Boys." Again the regiment moved from point to point and engaged from time to time in skirmishes, until we find it in the rear of Vicksburg, where it acted as support to an assaulting party on May 21. Here it continued at work until May 29, when with a brigade it withdrew from line and went on an expedition to the Yazoo Valley. On the 4th of June it had returned and was in reserve at Vicksburg. On the 26th of June the regiment withdrew to Tiffin with the Second Brigade to watch the movements of Johnston. After the fall of Vicksburg the regiment camped at Bovina Station, but was soon ordered to join Sherman's army then besieging Jackson.
     In January, 1864, two-thirds of the men re-enlisted, and on the 8th of February the regiment crossed Big Black and joined the Meridian expedition. Arriving at Meridian, the regiment assisted in destroying railroads and then marched to Chunkey Creek. The regiment afterward went north on furlough, and after thirty days rendezvoused at Camp Dennison on the 1st of May, and proceeded to Cairo, and from there by steamer to Clifton, Tenn. From here it marched, via Pulaski, Huntsville, Decatur, and Rome, to Acworth, where it joined General Sherman on the 9th of June after a march of two hundred and fifty miles. After some skirmishes, the regiment appeared before the Rebel works at Atlanta on the 20th of July. The regiment took position in the advanced line on the 21st, and on the next day firing was heard to its rear. It formed in the works, the Rebels advanced, and the men leaped the parapet and faced the enemy. The Rebels pressed around the regiment and bullets came from front, flank, and rear. The Twentieth delivered their fire wherever the strength of the Rebels appeared until cartridges became scarce, when portions of Companies A, F, and D risked life and obtained, in the face of the enemy, five cases of ammunition. Even this was insufficient, and the ammunition of the wounded and dead was distributed, and charges made to capture Rebels for the sake of their cartridges. The batteries in Atlanta threw shell upon the rear of the brigade, the enemy redoubled the fire in front, and placing a captured gun within fifty paces of the flank of the Twentieth, raked the regiment with canister. Orders came to retire, and the men withdrew to form a new line, firing their last cartridge as they withdrew. In the new line the Twentieth was placed in reserve except a detachment of one hundred men who were posted in the works on Force's Hill, and fought desperately until the close of the battle. In this engagement the Twentieth lost forty-four men killed, fifty-six wounded, and fifty-four missing. Many instances of personal daring were mentioned, among which were Lieutenant Nutt, of Company F; Skillen, of Company G; Privates Crabbe and Casey of Company C; Elder, of Company G; and Speker and Stevenson of Company F, especially distinguished themselves.
     The regiment changed about until the 24th of August, when it received orders to march as guard to the supply trains of the Army of' the Tennessee. Four days later it joined its brigade at Fairburn and assisted in destroying railroads. It went into battle at Jonesboro' on the 31st, and as "refused flank" was exposed to a heavy artillery fire. It then went to Lovejoy's Station, but a few days later went into camp near Atlanta. On the 5th of October it engaged in the pursuit of Hood and at Galesburg turned back, and on November 5th again went into camp near Atlanta. It left Atlanta with Sherman's army November 15 for Savannah, participated in the destruction of Millan, Ga., and reaching Savannah, went into position on the right of the Seventeenth Corps. On. December 19th it .was detached and sent to Ogeechee, where it engaged in building wharves for the landing of supplies. The work was ended by the surrender of Savannah and the regiment rejoined the brigade December 24th in camp at the outskirts of the city.
     On January 5, 1865, the regiment embarked on the steamer Fanny and proceeded to Beaufort, S. C, crossed Port Royal Ferry, and advanced until the enemy was found entrenched beyond a rice swamp. The Twentieth deployed as skirmishers, charged the enemy's works in splendid style, and the regimental colors were soon waving from the parapet. At dark the troops encamped before the fortifications of Pocotaligo, and on the morn­ing of the 13th of January the regiment was assigned camping ground beyond the railroad station of Pocotaligo, and remained there until the 30th, when it joined the Carolina campaign. The head of the column struck the enemy on February 3d near the north Edisto bridge at Orangeburg, and two companies of the Twentieth were deployed as skirmishers. Soon the regiment advanced at double quick and drove the enemy back to their fortifica­tions, from which they opened fire. The regiment deployed as skirmishers, advanced through an ice cold and waist-deep swamp, opened fire on the enemy and held the position until relieved m the evening. The next day the river was crossed and the railroad destroyed. Reached Columbia the night of its destruction, and the next morning marched through its smoking ruins and destroyed the railroad as far as Winnsboro'. On the 24th was left in rear of the whole army to guard the pontoon train, and after a hard march entered Cheraw March 3d and Bennettsville on the 6th. On the 20th of March Bentonville was reached, and on the 24th the regiment entered Goldsboro. Two weeks later the regiment pushed to Raleigh, and on the 15th of April moved toward Johnston's army. It became known that Johnston had asked terms of surrender, the men went into ecstasies of joy, and even stood on their heads in the mud as they contemplated the final scene of the war. Leaving Raleigh on the 1st of May the regiment marched via Richmond to Washington, participated in the grand review, May 24th, was sent to Louisville, Ky., and on the 18th of July returned to Columbus and was mustered out of the service.
     The whole history of this regiment is creditable to the men, to the officers, and to the nation.
