notes.--The Eighty-second lost the most officers in battle of any Ohio regiment. It was recruited at Kenton in the fall of 1861, leaving the State January 25, 1862, and proceeding to West Virginia, where it was assigned, in March, to Schenck's Brigade. It was engaged, May 8th, at McDowell, Va., with a loss of 6 killed, 50 wounded, and 1 missing. It fought at Manassas in Milroy's Independent Brigade, of Sigel's Corps, losing 24 killed, 99 wounded, and 15 missing; Colonel Cantwell was killed in this action, falling from his horse while directing the movements of his regiment in a change of front under fire. The regiment having been assigned soon after to the Eleventh Corps, remained encamped in Virginia during the next eight months, making its winter-quarters near Stafford. At Chancellorsville, it fought in Krzyzanowski's (2d) Brigade, Schurz's (3d) Division, Eleventh Corps, losing 8 killed,--including four officers,--48 wounded, and 25 missing. It lost at Gettysburg, 17 killed,--including six officers,--85 wounded, and 79 missing, out of 312 present in action. The regiment accompanied the Eleventh Corps to Tennessee, where it participated in the Chattanooga campaign,--then in Tyndale's Brigade,--and in the hardships of the subsequent march to the relief of Knoxville. In April, 1864, it was transferred to Robinson's (3d) Brigade, Williams's (1st) Division, Twentieth Corps, in which command it fought through the Atlanta campaign and in the Carolinas. It encountered hard fighting in the former, at New Hope Church, and at Peach Tree Creek. After the fall of Atlanta it marched with Sherman to the sea, and through the Carolinas.
