1862/64 Ohio 99th Volunteer Infantry Regimental History:32, p. 46. "The 99th O.V.I. was mustered into service Aug. 26, 1862, and included one company from Auglaize County. It left Camp Lima Aug. 31, under orders to report at Lexington, Ky. It participated against Bragg in the retreat to Wild Cat, then marched against John Morgan, who was pushed from his own ground, but without any significant result. Again it moved toward Nashville, took part in the battle of Stone River, and advanced on Murfreesboro'. It next operated in the Tennessee and Sequatchie Valleys but moved in time to engage in the battle of Chickamauga. It afterward entered Lookout Valley, engaged in the ‘battle above the clouds', and the following day swept over Mission Ridge. After these engagements it went into camp until it moved in the Atlanta campaign, when it participated in the battles of Kenesaw and Pine Mountain, Atlanta, Jonesboro’, and Lovejoy. It then started in pursuit of Hood, via Resaca to Duck River, and after opening communications, was ordered to Franklin. From here it proceeded to Nashville, where it took a position in front of the city, and moved against Hood’s entrenchments. The entrenchments were carried and the rebel guns turned upon the retreating army, which was pursued as far as Columbia. Here the 99th was consolidated with the 50th Ohio, after which it moved to Wilmington, Kingston, Goldsboro', Raleigh, Greensboro', and was finally mustered out at Salisbury, N. C., June 26, 1865."
