ADDENDA - Hildebrand, Jesse (Marietta City 1st Ward).  Have seen in various books where his last name is spelled "Hilderbrand." Jesse was Washington County, Ohio Sheriff from Jan. 1850 to 1853.  According to the American Civil War Soldiers Database, he enlisted on Oct.1, 1861 as a Colonel at the age of 60.  He was commissioned in Company S of the 77th OVI on Jan. 25, 1862.  He died of disease on Apr. 18,, 1863 at Alton, Illinois. Jesse was in command of the Alton Prison from Sept. 5, 1862 until his death. Some Alton Prison websites state that Jesse took sick and returned to his home in Ohio before he died.  This is not true.  He died at Alton Prison while he was Commander of the prison.  When he died, Major William Bion Mason, (grandson of William Bond Mason, 1st 48 settlers of Marietta) was promoted to Colonel.  William remained in command of the Alton Prison until July 30, 1863 when he was relived by Colonel George Kinkade of the 37th Iowa Volunteers.  Excerpt from the Alton Prison Website:  ...."The 77th Ohio was not held in high esteem by the majority of Altonians, and the men had a bad time during their stay in town. The commander was Col. Jesse Hildebrand, a brave disciplinarian and soldier who commanded a brigade at Shiloh, but the regiment that came to Alton with him behaved badly in that battle and was routed, driven back to the river. The men were sent to Alton to do lighter duty and to recover the regiment's morale. This was accomplished and later the regiment gave distinguished service on the battlefield, but the most trying portion of its history during the war probably was the stay in Alton, when the outfit was the object of torment by every schoolboy in the city. When a group of schoolboys would meet one of the regiment's soldiers on that street, they would shout "There goes a Shiloh racer." The result was that the soldier would dash for his tormentors, the air becoming blue with adjectives of a gingery nature, but this would only delight the boys and they would continue the bickering from a safe distance.  Fire broke out in a wooden building in the northwest corner of the prison grounds in November of that year; and the flames were finally subdued by the Alton volunteer fire department, but during the excitement, several prisoners escaped. This was blamed onto the 77th by the boys, though a much more serious escape had taken place during the guardianship of the beloved 13th, and no capital had been made of it".......   ROCK PILE SIGNIFICANT PIECE OF ALTON HISTORY - Alton Telegraph, October 29, 1973  ....."The Col. Jesse Hildebrand of the 77th Ohio was the prison commander. Described in historical records as well respected, he was also noted for his hatred for Southerners. He would often cancel all rations, such as they were, for days because of minor flare-ups among the prisoners. In one instance, when the Union flag fell off the flag pole into the prison yard, two dozen prisoners ran out stomping on the flag while singing "Dixie." This episode resulted in the shooting on the spot of one prisoner, and a full week without food for all inmates. During this time 12 more prisoners died. But the real tragedy came to the prison in 1863 when smallpox broke out among the prisoners. The medical treatment provided by Buckmaster consisted of a local doctor visiting the prison hospital, five beds in all, every Saturday. The smallpox spread quickly in the filth infested prison. When the yard was not turned into a swamp by rain, it was a desert of dust with a current oasis consisting of puddles of urine and other human wastes. The prisoners were in no physical condition to withstand the ravages of smallpox and it soon turned into a full-scale epidemic. A panic spread through the city of Alton when it was learned what was happening in the prison. With the death toll increasing to five per day and rising, burial became a problem also. The first victims of the epidemic were buried in what is now the Confederate Cemetery, located near North Alton. But when North Alton residents learned of what was going on, they protested and the prison officials had to find another place to put the dead. The problem was solved when officials started using an island located just 200 yards upstream from the prison on the Mississippi. Mass graves were dug on the island, in the form of trenches four feet deep and 50 feet long. Bodies were wrapped in a blanket and thrown into these mass unmarked graves. The death toll required a trench to be dug once a week to accommodate the bodies during the height of the epidemic, which lasted from the winter to the spring of 1863-64. No accurate records were kept during the epidemic, but estimates of deaths due to the epidemic range from 1,000 to over 5,000. The Army listed the toll at 1,354, but then, their records were not accurate either. During the epidemic, a hospital was also set up on the island of the gravesites, known by this time as Smallpox Island. Only a few of the several thousand smallpox victims ever returned from the island. The epidemic subsided in the late summer of 1864, almost a year after it had started, and about a year after that the old prison once again became inactive. Buckmaster still owned the prison, but after a couple of attempts to get it reopened, he sold it in 1875. The prison walls began to come down as the smooth limestone blocks were in great demand by area builders, who used the stones in foundations of many local buildings. Many of the stones went into the construction of the East Alton railroad underpass. By the year 1894, when the city of Alton purchased the wall, all that was left of the prison is what stands there now, only a small reminder of the first Illinois state prison - a prison that had no bathing facilities, the only prison where the inmates had to stand to eat their meals, and a prison that rivaled Andersonville for filth, misery and death...."

ADDENDA - Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

The Marietta Register"  July 21, 1881.  As told by Col. William Bion Mason to H.Z. Willams for publication.  "On Sunday morning at daylight the regiment was on the way to the drill ground. Having gone a few hundred yards under command of Major B. D. Fearing, we were overtaken by an orderly and ordered back to camp to eat breakfast and fall back immediately. Breakfast was hot and ready. Some were drinking half warmed coffee, when the orders came as follows: "The 77th will fall into line quick: Company B will move to the front, deploy as skirmishers, move forward to the See House." The company promptly formed and moved forward on the road, and crossed the bridge about fifty yards in front of the regimental color line. Capt. Mason gave the orders to deploy to the right of the road and before the company was deployed they were directly under the fire of the enemy, and several were knocked down among them one of the noblest of the company, GEORGE BOOTH, of Marietta."   See Col. William B. Mason's account of the 77th OVI in the Battle of Shiloh at this url:  http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/n/i/t/Debra-Nitsche/FILE/0160text.txt

ADDENDA - Excerpt from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. --- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

Original article was supplied by Dale T. French. He is a descendant of William C. & Mariah (Patten) Wright. (NOTE: Article not copied exactly how it was written because of copyright.)
     David WRIGHT of Warren Township, Washington County, Ohio was 21 years old when he enlisted for 3 years on October 6, 1862 as a Private of 92nd OVI, Company G when it was organized in Marietta, Ohio. Companies F, G, and H were formed from Washington County. DAVID was in the army for almost a year when the 92nd became heavily involved as part of Turchin’s Brigade Division. This division was commanded by Major William S. Rosencrans, known by his men as “Old Rosey.”
     David’s older brother, Benjamin “Stokely” Wright enlisted as a Sergeant on August 1, 1861 at the age of 23 years with Company F of the 36th OVI. Companies A and F was formed from Washington County. Stokely had been in a veteran of several majors battles before his regiment also became a part of Turchin’s Brigade.
     On Saturday, September 19, 1863 the 36th and 92nd OVI was in heavy fighting when they came under fire at Chickamauga. The regiments had just entered the battlefield after arriving by train to join Turchin’s Birgade. The men stood firm under repeated onslaughts by Longstreet’s Confederate Army. Colonel Benjamin Dana Fearing was wounded and carried from the field, and the command, so skillfully commanded by him, fell to Douglas Putnam, Jr., a Lieutenant Colonel from Marietta, Ohio, who then took command of the 92nd regiment. Early on the morning of Sunday, the 20th, the regiment moved forward into the woods in front of their bivouac, and were placed behind a breastwork of logs and wood facing south, and kept up a brisk fire upon the enemy's line until noon, when firing almost ceased, and the regiment was drawn back and lay in double column unengaged till about 4 p. m. About this time the regiment moved with the brigade up the Chattanooga road, a short distance above Kelly's house, when line of battle was formed facing southwest. The line was then faced by the rear rank to the northeast and ordered to charge a line of the enemy drawn up in solid column across the road. The 92nd regiment led the charge on the right, now become the left, and with the other regiments drove the rebels across the field and over the hill and came out at a battery stationed on the hill north of the woods, belonging to Granger's corps. After receiving a volley from the enemy, with bayonets fixed and a shout, the 92nd rushed forward and in utter confusion forced them to abandon a part of a battery and throw away their arms. A colonel and several officers were taken prisoners by my men. After resting in line of battle for an hour and a half the regiment moved with the brigade down the road to a point about 2 miles from Rossville, where we bivouacked for the night. We lost in the charge 3 commissioned officers wounded, 12 men wounded, 15 men missing. We sent back a number of prisoners, who were taken to Chattanooga. The entire loss of the two days' fight was as follows: Killed, 6; wounded, 62; officers, 6; missing.
     On October 27, 1863, the 92nd & 36th OVI was a participant in the capture of Browns Ferry before participating in the capture of Mission Ridge in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As many men from Washington County, Ohio was either wounded or killed, DAVID and STOKELY WRIGHT remained unharmed. The regiments remained in Chattanooga until February 22, 1864. The loss of the of the regiment severe. Within 20 minutes, 33% of the officers and 10% of the men engaged, though it took many prisoners and 2 guns. In latter part of February 1864, after the fight at Rocky Face Ridge the regiment lost many men, some of the wounded being burned in the blazing woods.   In the meantime, while this was all going on, WILLIAM WRIGHT, age 19, another brother was missing after being defeated at Rogersville, near Knoxville, Tennessee on November 26, 1863. WILLIAM WRIGHT was a resident of Wesley Township, Washington County, Ohio, when he enlisted at the age of 18 years old as a Private in Company H of the 7th Ohio Cavalry. No one knows if DAVID and/or STOKELY knew if their younger brother, WILLIAM died of disease while a POW at Andersonville prison in Georgia on April 24, 1864.
     In the later part of March 1864, DAVID & STOKELY parted ways for the very last time. The 36th OVI returned to Washington County on a veterans furlough.
     On May 14 & 15, 1864, the 92nd OVI was in battle at Resaca. It lost but 2 men killed and 2 wounded. Then the 92nd & 36th joined the Turchin’s Brigade Division near Dallas, Georgia. Before the move began, Benjamin Dana Fearing, commander of the 92nd OVI resumed his place in the regiment after a 6 month leave while he was recuperating from a severe leg wound he received during the battle at Chickamauga.
     In the later part of March 1864, DAVID & STOKELY parted ways for the very last time. The 36th OVI returned to Washington County on a veterans furlough. Two months later, STOKELY returned to duty, but took ill and died on May 20, 1864 at an Army hospital in Gallipolis, Ohio.

At the time of David’s death, he was 22 years, 10 months & 17 days old.

ADDENDA - STONEMAN, John  (Wesley Twp.)  Killed on April 6, 1862 in Shiloh (aka Pittsburgh Landing), Tennessee.  === Excerpt from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]
