1861/65 Ohio 37th Volunteer Infantry Regiment:32, p. 46. "The 37th Regiment O.V.I. was the third German regiment organized in the State, and was mustered into service October 2, 1862. It participated in the campaigns of the Kanawha Valley, Arkansas and the Yazoo River, and again in the investment of Vicksburg. Here the Lieut. Colonel was severely wounded, and the command during the next month devolved upon Major Hipp, now of St. Marys. After the fall of Vicksburg, the regiment participated in the capture of Jackson, and returned to Cherokee Station via Memphis and Corinth. It next appeared at Chattanooga, operating in the Sugar Creek Valley, and in the march to Kingston, again in command of Major Hipp. It afterward engaged in the movements on the Chattahooche River, but moved rapidly from here against Atlanta. After the fall of the city, forced marches were made across Georgia and Alabama in pursuit of Hood’s cavalry. On Nov. 13, 1864, the regiment entered Atlanta to obtain outfits for the ‘grand march to the sea’ under Sherman. The history of this march is known, and at its close we find the regiment in camp at Goldsboro’, N.C., during the capitulations of Lee and Johnson. It then marched to Washington, was reviewed by the President and Cabinet, and then transferred to Little Rock, Arkansas, and lastly to Cleveland, Ohio, where the men were discharged, Aug. 12, 1865."
