175th Regiment Roll of Honor

175th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry

Roll of Honor

This document borrows on an original roll of honor that was compiled by Harrison Scott Baker that is posted on www.ohiocivilwar.com In this updated version some of the edits, additions, and corrections to the roll are from Eric Jacobson in his book Baptism of Fire. Others, and for the most part the list of wounded, are from the book 24th and 175th Regiments of Volunteer Infantry from Ohio 1861–1865 by Richard Osburn, revised 2007. Richard’s sources were HQ Reports; Commanding Officer Mullenix, Ohio’s Highland County Highland Weekly News, and the Nashville Daily Times and True Union, all published in December, 1864. Additional updates are by the submitter and include changes found in visits to the National Cemetery in Nashville, and most recently from www.findagrave.com along with a variety of other discovery sources and a little “detective” work.

During their year of service the regiment suffered 257 casualties, including 132 dead. One Hundred and three (103) of the total had been prisoners of war. There is no doubt many more than the reported were wounded or suffered other effects of battle such as loss of hearing. Refer to www.civilwarindex.com/armyoh/rosters/roll_of_honor_vol9.pdf the source of Mr. Baker’s work, for some additional information regarding most of these men. These lists do not include the many men whose fate is not recorded in any of the sources and is unknown.

A Brief History

As the Confederate Army, defeated at Atlanta and now commanded by John Bell Hood, moved into Tennessee from the south they tried to advance to the north of Columbia and cut off the Union Army there. The “battle of Columbia” was a series of skirmishes and artillery attacks against the Union over a five day period. In addition to these attacks, members of the 175th who were stationed at the isolated blockhouses on the rail-line between Pulaski and Springhill, Tennessee came under attack. Sixty-Two men were captured at one of the blockhouses alone. On Nov. 27, as union troops prepared to retreat north, a hospital train started north from Columbia with three dozen men of the 175th “sick or wounded at Columbia.” The Union Army retreated north to Franklin, most of which was directly through the Confederate Army during the night of Nov. 29. The Battle of Franklin took place on Nov. 30, 1864. It was fought there roughly over an eight hour period, but for the most part in the five hours between 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Some of the men captured during these events and eventually released were carried back north aboard steamers up the Mississippi River. One such steamer, the Sultana, sank in our country’s greatest maritime disaster, killing most of those men.

Burial Sites

St. Louis burials are at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery which began as the Jefferson Barracks Military Post Cemetery.

Nashville some burials are at the Nashville National Cemetery and are identified as such. Those had original interments and were transferred from veteran hospital cemeteries around the region, as well as battlefield cemeteries. Others listed as Nashville are interred at unknown locations.

Stone’s River burials are in Murfreesboro, TN at Stone’s River National Cemetery

New Albany burials are at the New Albany (Indiana) National Cemetery.  Many of the initial interments were also transferred from nearby military hospital cemeteries.

On Steamer Sultana The SS Sultana was a River Steamboat Paddle-Wheeler that exploded on April 27, 1865 in the greatest maritime disaster in U.S. history. An estimated 1,600 of Sultana’s 2,400 passengers were killed when three of the ship’s four boilers exploded and Sultana sank near Memphis, TN.  Most of the passengers were Union soldiers, many from Ohio and just released from Confederate prisons such as Cahaba and Andersonville.
