My GGGrandfather joined the 94th Ohio Infantry in 1862, his first battle was Perryville. He was wounded (By a saber) and captured about a month after the battle. He was in a prison camp until exchanged in 1863. He saw service with the 94th in the XIV Corps and the Army of the Cumberland until the end of the war in Carolinas. The war pretty much destroyed his health. Heat stroke (Atlanta Campaign), his wound. mattered eyes, and other problems bothered him the rest of life. He took up a variety of professions, farming at first. He owned land in 4 or 5 states. He finally retired, got his service pension, and lived a long time before dying in 1934. He was born in 1845. My mother who took care of him the last year of his life, said he worked hard his entire life. He ate with a knife, and used to sing The Battle Cry of Freedom, his favorite song a lot.
