129th Infantry Regiment, Ohio






I went in search of a great, great, great uncle that had supposedly died of Pneumonia during the Civil War. Upon finally finding him in the records I was sorry to see just how little was published on the internet about the 129th Infantry Regiment, Ohio. I decided to take on this problem myself and try to find out as much information as possible about these brave Union Soldiers. I am starting with my relatives company, which is Company E of the 129th. I hope to be adding more as soon as possible. Please if you have any information to add about any of these brave men, please send it to me and I will be glad to add it. Or if you have a link to your website I would be happy to add your link! And I would truly love to add pictures of the personnel of the 129th.

Make sure you check out the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Cleveland Ohio. It needs all our support!!

Here's a little Regimental History of the 129th:

OHIO ONE HUNDRED and TWENTY-NINTH INFANTRY (Three Years)
One Hundred and Twenty-ninth Infantry. - Col., Howard D. John; Lieut.-Col., George L. Hayward; Maj., Charles Mitchener. This regiment was organized at Cleveland, Aug. 10, 1863, to serve for six months, and on the same day started for Camp Nelson, Ky. On Aug. 20 it left Camp Nelson for Cumberland gap, at which place it assisted in the capture of the Confederate garrison - more than 2,000 prisoners, with a large amount of war materials of all kinds. The regiment remained at and about the gap, engaged in foraging, scouting, picket duty, etc., until Dec. 1, when it was ordered to move in the direction of the Clinch river, which was reached the next day, at a point where the Knoxville road crosses that stream. There a sharp engagement was in progress, in which the regiment took an active part. From Dec. 2 to 31, the regiment had occasional skirmishes with the enemy. It was mustered out from March 4 to 10, 1864.
