On the March Again

On February 17, 1862, the 1st OVI, and the Army of Ohio, began marching to Nashville, Tennessee arriving there on March 3, 1862.  The 1st OVI arrived late at night and camped five miles out on the Franklin Turnpike.  In a “History of the First Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry,” written by Albert Kern, Kern reports that “the men of the regiment long remembered that weary march through intense darkness, through rain, sleet, and snow, there were no tents, blankets or shelter of any kind, and camping in the open” on an icy field.
