The 9th Ohio was composed of Germans, and was known as the First German or “Prussian” Regiment. At Chickamauga this regiment lost 48 killed, 185 wounded, and 16 missing; total, 249, out of about 500 engaged, and the heaviest loss but one of any regiment on the field. The 28th and 37th Ohio were also German Regiments.

At Chaplin Hills, six color-bearers of the Third Ohio were shot down in succession, but the flag was not allowed to touch the ground, so promptly did each successive hero grasp its falling staff.

The 22d Ohio was organized at St. Louis, and designated the 13th Missouri Volunteers; but as it was composed mainly of Ohio men, it was transferred, in 1862, to the Ohio line by order of the Secretary of War.

The 75th Ohio, Eleventh Corps, was transferred to South Carolina in 1863, and thence to Florida, where it served as mounted infantry.

The 11th and 12th Ohio served, also, in the Kanawha Division of the Ninth Corps, and were engaged at South Mountain and Antietam.
