29th Ohio Infantry

The regiment was organized from August 14, 1861, through March 13, 1862, at Jefferson, Ohio, by famed statesman Joshua Reed Giddings. Mustered into the army to serve three years, the 29th OVI was composed primarily of recruits from Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Trumbull, and Summit counties. A few men in Company C were from Crawford County, Pennsylvania. Col. Louis P. Buckley served as the first regimental commander.

The 29th served for some time in the defenses of Winchester, Virginia, and participated in the battles of Port Republic, Cedar Mountain, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Davis' Cross Roads, New Hope Church, Dallas, Pine Knob, Peachtree Creek and during the Carolinas Campaign.

On the expiration of its three-year term of service, the surviving original members were mustered out, and the organization, composed of veterans and recruits, remained in service until July 13, 1865, when it was mustered out in Cleveland accordance with orders from the War Department.
