———————

This brigade, with the exception of the 10th Wisconsin, marched, on the afternoon of the 24th, from Chattanooga, and reenforced Hooker in the Battle of Lookout Mountain. Leaving Hooker's column as it descended the mountain, Nov. 25th, it joined its division, becoming the right of Gen. Thomas' assaulting lines, and was ordered by Gen. Johnson to prepare to attack the enemy on Missionary Ridge. Moving forward in two lines with the general advance, it took the rifle-pits near the foot of the ridge, and charged for the summit. The right of the brigade was at first repulsed, but a rifle-pit half way up being carried by the 42nd Indiana, the 104th Illinois, and the 88th Indiana, forming the left of the brigade, the whole line advanced to the summit. The 2nd Ohio moved 300 yards to the right and captured a considerable part of the 36th Alabama with its colors.
