68th Ohio

On front of monument:
Ohio 68th Infantry,
Commanded by Col. Samuel H. Steedman,
Thayer's (2d) Brigade, L. Wallace's (3d) Division, Army of the Tennessee
On back of monument:
This regiment was left to guard stores at Crump's Landing.
It seems odd that a regiment that probably didn't touch a minie ball all day choose a minie ball as their monument design.
