notes — Recruited in Cleveland, in August, 1861, the men coming mostly from that immediate vicinity. In November, the regiment moved into Kentucky, where it was assigned to Nelson's Division, Colonel Hazen commanding the brigade. In March, 1862, the division moved with Buell to reenforce Grant, the Army of the Ohio arriving just in time to save the field of Shiloh. In that battle the regiment lost 21 killed, 111 wounded, and 10 missing, out of nine companies, 371 officers and men, officially reported as engaged; four color bearers were shot down, two of them killed. The regiment followed the fortunes of Buell's Army, being present, though not engaged, at Perryville, Ky. The Forty-first was hotly engaged at Stone's River,--then in Hazen's (2d) Brigade, Palmer's (2d) Division, Crittenden's Corps — losing 14 killed, 104 wounded, and 6 missing, out of 411 reported on the field. After resting at Murfreesboro for over five months, the Army commenced its advance on Chattanooga. At the battle of Chickamauga, the Forty-first lost 6 killed, 100 wounded, and 9 missing. The Army was reorganized in October, 1863, whereupon the Forty-first became a part of Hazen's (2d) Brigade, Wood's (3d) Division, Fourth Corps, in which command it fought at Orchard Knob and Missionary Ridge; loss, 18 killed, and 70 wounded. While on the Atlanta campaign the division had a severe fight at Pickett's Mills, near Dallas, Ga., on May 27, 1864, retiring with a heavy loss, the regiment losing 26 killed, 70 wounded, and 6 missing, out of 271 present. Mustered out November 27, 1865, while on duty in Texas.
