24th Ohio Volunteer Infantry

Organized in June, 1861, under Colonel Jacob Ammen, it served in West Virginia until November, when it proceeded to Kentucky. It marched under Buell to Shiloh and participated in the second day's battle, and again fought at Perryville and Stone River, losing in the latter engagement one-fourth of its members. At Chickamauga it lost heavily, and at Missionary Ridge and Ringgold did effective duty. The Regiment was mustered out June 24th, 1864.
