notes.--Organized at Steubenville, O., August 20, 1862. It left the State immediately, and moved into Kentucky, where it was assigned soon after to the Thirty-fourth Brigade, Tenth Division, McCook's Corps, Army of the Ohio, in which command it fought at Chaplin Hills, October 8, 1862. Colonel Webster, who was in command of the brigade, was killed in this battle. General Terrill, who commanded the other brigade in this division, and General Jackson, the dlivision commander, were also killed, while the regiment lost in this, its baptism of fire, 35 killed, 162 wounded, and 32 missing; a total of 229, out of 822 present for duty that day. The Ninety-eighth moved into Tennessee and was stationed successively at Franklin, Shelbyville, and Wartrace during the spring and summer of 1863, after which it joined in Rosecrans's advance to Chickamauga, having been assigned to Steedman's Division of Gordon Granger's Reserve Corps. Its casualty list at Chickamauga showed 9 killed, 41 wounded, and 13 missing, out of 201 present for action. Upon the reorganization of the Army of the Cumberland, in October, 1863, the regiment was placed in the Second Brigade, Second Division, Fourteenth Corps, in which it served until mustered out. This brigade fought under General John Beatty at Missionary Ridge, but in its subsequent campaigns it was commanded by General John G. Mitchell. The Ninety-eighth was not actively engaged at Missionary Ridge, but in the pursuit on the following day it fought in an affair at Graysville, Ga. The regiment encamped during the winter of 1863-64 at Rossville, Ga., and in May moved with Sherman's Army in its victorious advance on Atlanta, participating in all the battles of the Fourteenth Corps during that memorable campaign. Major James M. Shane was killed in the assault on Kenesaw Mountain.
