notes.--Organized and mustered in at Fort Wayne on the 24th of September, 1861. Proceeding to Ken tucky it reported to General Rousseau, and, having been assigned to McCook's Brigade, moved with Buell's Army to Bowling Green, Ky.; thence, in March, 1862, to Nashville, and thence, in April, to the battle field of Shiloh, where Buell arrived in time to fight the battle of the second day and save Grant's Army. The Colonel fell, mortally wounded, in this engagement, while the total casualties in the regiment amounted to 12 killed, 115 wounded, and 2 missing. The Thirtieth was then in Kirk's Brigade of A. D. McCook's Division. After the Siege of Corinth it marched with Buell through Northern Alabama and Tennessee into Kentucky, and thence to Nashville. At Stone's River it fought in Johnson's (2d) Division, McCook's Corps, losing in that battle, 31 killed, 110 wounded, and 72 missing. The regiment was small in numbers at Chickamauga, yet it lost there, 10 killed, 55 wounded, and 61 missing. During the Atlanta campaign it was in Grose's (3d) Brigade, Stanley's (1st) Division, Fourth Corps. After the fall of Atlanta it marched northward with the Fourth Corps, and was engaged at the battles of Franklin and Nashville. In that campaign the division was commanded by General Kimball, Stanley having been promoted to the command of the Corps. In 1864, while at Atlanta, the regiment was mustered out, its three years of enlistment having expired. The recruits and reenlisted men remaining in the field were consolidated into a battalion of seven companies, which remained with the Fourth Corps during the rest of the war.
