ONE HUNDRED and ELEVENTH INFANTRY
One Hundred and Eleventh Infantry. - Col., John R. Bond;
Lieut.Cols., Benjamin W. Johnson, Moses R. Brailey, Isaac R.
Sherwood; Maj. Thomas C. Norris. This regiment was organized
at Camp Toledo, Sept. 5 and 6, 1862, to serve for three years.
It was a northwestern Ohio regiment, having been raised in San-
dusky, Lucas, Wood, Fulton, Williams and Defiance counties. It
took the field at Covington, Ky., and remained in that state
employed in various duties for the greater part of a year. It
was then ordered to East Tennessee, where it was first engaged
at Huff's ferry, losing only a few wounded, as it was on the
right flank of the brigade and partially under cover of dense
woods. At Loudon creek a brisk skirmish took place between the
regiment and the 6th S. C. sharpshooters, composing Gen. Long-
street's advance, and in this engagement the regiment lost 4
killed and 12 wounded. In the engagement at Campbell's station
the regiment occupied the front line, directly in front of two
batteries of Confederate artillery, and was for 6 hours exposed
to the shells of the enemy's concentrated fire, but lost only 8
men killed and wounded. It passed through the siege of Knox-
ville, occupying the fort on College hill, and lost 6 men
killed and wounded. After Gen. Longstreet's retreat it took
part in the skirmishes at Blain's cross-roads and Dandridge and
occupied an outpost 6 miles in front of the city when Gen.
Schofield fell back the second time on Knoxville. In May the
regiment united with the left wing of Gen. Sherman's army to
participate in the Atlanta campaign. It marched to Tunnel Hill
on May 7, and on the following day skirmished into a position
in front of Buzzard Roost gap. It had but seven companies en-
gaged at Resaca, but out of the number 7 men were killed and 30
wounded. In the engagement at Dallas it lost 15 men killed and
wounded. It was actively engaged in the siege of Kennesaw
mountain, the battles at Pine and Lost mountains, on the Chat-
tahoochee river, near Nickajack creek, at Peachtree creek, in
the siege of Atlanta and the skirmishes at Utoy creek and Love-
joy's Station. It started on the Atlanta campaign with 380 men
and of this number lost in killed and wounded 212. Following
Hood into Tennessee, it participated in the skirmishes at Co-
lumbia and was detailed to remain in the rear to guard the
forks of Duck river while Gen. Thomas' army fell back on Frank-
lin. In the fight at Franklin, out of 180 men engaged the
regiment lost 22 men killed on the field and 40 wounded, many
being killed by Confederate bayonets. It was severely engaged
during both days of the fighting in front of Nashville and in a
charge on the second day it captured 3 Confederate battle-flags
and a large number of prisoners, losing 7 killed and 15 wound-
ed. After pursuing Hood for some distance, the regiment was
sent to North Carolina, where it joined the army under Gen.
Terry and took an active part in the capture of Fort Anderson
and in the skirmishes at Town creek and Goldsboro. It then did
garrison duty at Salisbury until ordered home to be mustered
out, the latter event occurring on June 27, 1865. The regiment
numbered 1,050 when it entered the service and received 85 re-
cruits. Of these men 234 were discharged for disability, dis-
ease and wounds; 200 died of disease contracted in the service;
252 were killed in battle or died of wounds and 401 were mus-
tered out, leaving 48 unaccounted for.
