After the Antietam Campaign

"In January, 1863, the Regiment joined Grant's Army near Vicksburg, and took part in the investment of that stronghold. After the surrender it pursued Johnston to Jackson; returning went into camp at Black River. The 30th moved with Sherman to Tennessee and assaulted Mission Ridge. In January, 1864, it re-enlisted, and after a furlough to Ohio, joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign, and participated the battles of Kenesaw Mountain, Atlanta, Ezra Chapel, Jonesboro and Lovejoy's Station. It followed Sherman to the sea and took part in the successful assault on Fort McAllister, and after the fall of Savannah marched through the Carolinas on to Washington. It proceeded to Louisville in June, and to Arkansas in July, 1865, when it soon after returned to Ohio, and was mustered out August 22nd, 1865."
