72nd Ohio Infantry

The Seventy-second Infantry (three years) was organized at Fremont in the last quarter of 1861.

In September, the 72d entered Arkansas and Missouri to aid in opposing Price, but recrossed the Mississippi in November, and, on December 6 or 7, took part in the affair at Little Harpeth, Tenn., where it lost eleven men killed and wounded. On December 15 and 16 it took part in the brilliant fighting at Nashville, and from December 17 to January 1, 1865, was engaged in the pursuit of Hood.
