111th Ohio Infantry

The One Hundred and Eleventh Infantry (three years) was organized at Toledo in August, 1862, and mustered in September 5 and 6 of that year. It was an out-and-out northwestern Ohio command, ‘made up of men from Wood, Lucas, Sandusky, Fulton, Williams and Defiance counties.

“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 wounded.  After pursuing Hood for some distance, the regiment was sent to North Carolina.”
