'1. History of the 44th Ohio Infantry--"Organized in October, 1861, under Col. Samuel A. Gilbert, it moved into West Virginia and operated until September, 1862-having frequent engagemnts with the enemy-when it moved to Kentucky. In December the men were mounted as cavalry and operated against John Morgan. It joined Burnside's advance into East Tennessee, and in January, 1864, the Regiment re-enlisted as veterans providing it should be mounted as cavalry. When it again assembled, after a furlough home, it was designated as the 8th Ohio Cavalry. Among its deployments: operations in the Kanawha Valley and New River Region, West Virginia, Oct. 19-Nov. 16, 1861; duty at Camp Piatt, WV, until May 1862; action at Chapmansville April 8th; Miller's Ferry and Gauley Bridge September 11, 1862; regiment mounted at Frankfort, KY, operations in central Kentucky against Cluke's forces February 18-March 5, 1863... etc.
'2. History of 8th Ohio Cavalry--This regiment was organized March 28, 1864, from the veterans and recruits of the 44th Ohio Infantry, under Col. Samuel A. Gilbert, for three years service. Cols. Alpheus S. Moore and Wesley Owens afterwards commanded. The regiment proceeded to West Virginia, and in June joined Averill's raid on Lynchburg, skirmishing with the enemy in the advance and on the return. At Liberty it lost 71 men. At Beverly in October , it was surrounded by the enemy, but drove the Reberls off in a hand to hand fight. In the meantime a detachment of the regiment, under Col. Moore, served in the Shenandoah Valley, fighting at Winchester, Fisher's Hill and Cedar Creek. On the 11th of January, 1865, the camp of the Regiment was surprised and over 500 officers and men were captured. They were marched through snow, barefooted, and with scarcely any food, to Staunton, where they were loaded on stock cars and sent to Libby Prison. The sufferings of the men were dreadful at the hands of a cruel and relentless foe. They were exchanged in February, and in August, 1865, the regiment was mustered out of service.
