Under Colonel Charles R. Woods recruiting began for this Regiment as early as September, 1861, and the organization was completed February 9, 1862, with 962 officers and men. Seven companies went out from Licking county, one from Columbiana and two from Stark. The Regiment entered the field in February, 1862, and was in the battle of Fort Donelson six days after leaving Newark. It participated, the whole of the second day, in the battle of Shiloh supporting batteries and pursuing the enemy. It moved upon Corinth with Halleck's army, and after the evacuation marched to Memphis. In July it moved to Helena, Arkansas, joining General Curtis' army, and in August formed part of an expedition under Colonel C.R. Woods to the vicinity of Vicksburg, where it suprised a Rebel Regiment, capturing many prisoners; a Rebel transport with 7,000 stand of arms also fell into the hands of this expedition. In October the 76th went to Missouri, and in December joined Sherman's first assault upon Vicksburg. On January 11, 1863, it successfully charged the Rebel works at Arkansas Post, losing seventy men. It operated with Grant about Vicksburg and joined in the grand movement to the rear of Vicksburg, fighting at Jackson and through the whole siege. In October it moved to Memphis and across the country in time to assault Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge and Ringgold. At the latter place it lost heavily. It followed Sherman's victorious army through to Atlanta, fighting all the way. On July 22d, it charged the Rebels and recaptured a battery. The Regiment marched to the sea, through the Carolinas, on to Richmond and marched in the review at Washington. It then moved to Louisville and was discharged July 24, 1865. The 76th participated in 47 battles and moved 9,625 miles. On the field and in the hospitals 351 died. In battle 241 were wounded. It had over 1500 men in its organization and mustered out only 400 men at the end of the war.
