notes — Organized in August, 1861, at Marietta, and ordered on duty in West Virginia. Arriving there, it was stationed at Summerville, where it made its winter quarters and remained until May 12, 1862; it then moved to Lewisburg, Va., where it was placed in Crook's (3d) Brigade, Cox's Division. While at Lewisburg the brigade was attacked by a Confederate force under General Heth, which was repulsed and driven from the field, the regiment losing in this affair. 5 killed, 41 wounded, and 4 missing. In August, 1862, Cox's Kanawha Division was ordered to Eastern Virginia, the Thirty-sixth arriving on the field of Manassas during the action, where it was stationed in the reserve. During the ensuing Maryland campaign the division was attached to the Ninth Corps, and fought under Burnside at South Mountain, where the regiment lost 7 killed, and 18 wounded ; at Antietam it lost 2 killed, 21 wounded, and 2 missing, Colonel Clark being among the killed. After Antietam, the Kanawha Division returned to West Virginia, the regiment encamping during the next three months at Charlestown. In January, 1863, the Thirty-sixth joined the Army of the Cumberland, and in June, 1863, moved with Crook's Brigade, in the advance on Chattanooga. At Chickamauga, it was in Turchin's (3d) Brigade, Reynolds's (4th) Division, Fourteenth Corps; loss, 12 killed,--including Colonel Jones--65 wounded, and 14 missing. At Missionary Ridge,--then in Baird's (3d) Division, it sustained its heaviest loss,--10 killed, 62 wounded, and 3 missing. Reenlisting, it went to Ohio on a veteran furlough in March, 1864, from whence it was ordered to West Virginia.
