TWENTY-SEVENTH OHIO INFANTRY.

The organization of this regiment took place at Camp Chase in August, 1861. Before December they are heard of at St. Louis, St. Charles and Mexico, Missouri, Lexington, Kansas City, and Sadalia. During this month they shared in the capture of thirteen hundred recruits on their way to loin the rebel General PRICE. In March this regiment was in the advance in the movement on Island No. 10, and May 1, was with the army that moved on Corinth. On the nineteenth of September the Twenty-seventh was a part of the force sent to recapture Iuka. October 3, at the battle of Corinth it lost heavily. A timely reinforcement of two hundred recruits arrived soon after. Early in November, the Ohio brigade, of which the Twenty-seventh formed a part, with GRANT's army, marched to Oxford, Mississippi. They were next ordered to Jackson, Tennessee, to intercept FORREST, whom they met at Parker's cross roads, where an engagement took place, resulting in the capture of seven guns, three hundred and sixty prisoners, and four hundred horses. Shortly after re-enlistment, this brigade moved against and captured Decatur. At Dallas the rebels were driven before them. The regiment was also engaged with HOOD's corps on the twenty-eighth of May, skirmished at Big Shanty in June, and fought at Kenesaw and Nicojack creek in July.

Before Atlanta, on the twenty-second of July, the regiment was in one of its severest battles, and sustained its heaviest loss. In the pursuit of HOOD to the northward, it had a part; it also marched with SHERMAN to the sea, and was in the campaign of the Carolinas. After JOHNSTON's surrender, the Twenty-seventh moved to Washington, and in July, 1865, at Camp Dennison, received its final payment and discharge.
