ONE HUNDRED and FOURTEENTH INFANTRY
(Three Years)


One Hundred and Fourteenth Infantry. - Cols., John Cradle-
baugh, John H. Kelly; Lieut.-Cols , Horatio B. Maynard, John F.
McKinley; Majs. John Lynch, Emanuel Gephart, Ephraim Brown.
This regiment was organized at Camp Circleville, in Sept.,
1862, to serve for three years. The 120th Ohio infantry was
consolidated with it on Nov. 27, 1864. In Dec., 1862, the
regiment moved on transports down the Ohio and Mississippi riv-
ers to Johnston's landing, on the Yazoo river, where it joined
Gen. Sherman's army, then about to operate in the rear of
Vicksburg. It was present during the whole of the battle at
Chickasaw bayou and was severely engaged on Dec. 28 and 29,
losing several in killed and wounded. The regiment was in the
whole of the great Vicksburg campaign and participated in the
battles of Port Gibson. Champion's hill, Big Black river, and
the siege of Vicksburg. In the battle at Port Gibson it lost
several men killed and wounded in a charge made upon the enemy
about 5 p. m., in which the enemy was driven from the field and
2 pieces of artillery with a number of prisoners were captured.
In the battle of Big Black river the regiment had a number
killed and wounded, and this was also true in the charge at
Vicksburg on May 22. It spent the following winter in the op-
erations in Louisiana and Texas, and in April, 1864, while at
Alexandria, La., was engaged in the affair at Graham's planta-
tion, 12 miles out on the road. The last year's service of the
regiment was devoted to various expeditions, guard duty, etc.,
and it was mustered out on July 31, 1865. It lost during its
term of service 86 killed and wounded, about 200 died of dis-
ease, and quite a number were discharged for disability.
