References for this Unit


This was a one year regiment. Five companies of it were recruited in the vicinity of Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio and organized at Camp Toledo, by Lieutenant Colonel J.A. Chase. Under orders from the Adjutant General of the State, these companies were taken by rail to Camp Chase, near Columbus, where five other companies were added, thus completing the organization, October 28, 1864. On November 1, 1864 it was sent by rail to Nashville and spent several weeks drilling and serving guard and outpost duty. General Hood's Rebel army appeared before Nashville early in December, 1864. The 182nd took a prominent part in the ensuing battle of Nashville, and behaved handsomely. It did not participate in the pursuit of the enemy, but was retained in Nashville, where it performed guard and provost duty up to the 7th of July, 1865. It was then mustered out of service and sent home to Camp Chase, Ohio, where, July 13, 1865, the men were paid off and discharged.
