notes.--Recruited at Toledo, in April, 1861, in response to the first call for troops, its first enlistment being for three months. It served its three months in West Virginia, during which it fought in some minor engagements. Upon its return to Toledo it reassembled after a short furlough and volunteered for three years, with but little change in the organization. Leaving Toledo, August 24, 1861, it proceeded to Kentucky, where it was assigned to Manson's Brigade, and was engaged for several months in the various movements against the Confederate forces. In March, 1862, it marched with Buell's army to reenforce Grant, but the Fourteenth did not arrive at Shiloh until the fighting was over. After participating in the Siege of Corinth, it marched with the Army of the Ohio on its arduous campaigns in Tennessee and Kentucky. At Perryville it was in Fry's Brigade of Schoepf's Division, but was not engaged, after which the brigade went into winter quarters at Gallatin, Tenn. At Chickamauga, the regiment was in Croxton's (2d) Brigade, Brannan's (3d) Division, Fourteenth Corps, losing 35 killed, 167 wounded, and 43 missing, out of 449 engaged. During the Atlanta campaign the regiment served in Este's (3d) Brigade, Baird's (3d) Division, Fourteenth Corps. This brigade distinguished itself, particularly, at Jonesboro, where it carried the enemy's works by assault, losing one-third of its number within a few minutes. Among the killed were several men of the Fourteenth whose term of service had expired, but who volunteered to go into this action. The regiment having reenlisted, remained in the Fourteenth Corps until the close of the war.
