41st Ohio

41st Ohio Infantry
Commanded by Lt. Col. George S. Mygatt

On back of monument:
This regiment advanced to this point Monday morning, April 7, 1862, where it became engaged at 10 a.m. It had present 18 officers and 355 men. Its loss was 1 officer and 20 men killed; 6 officers and 105 men wounded; 1 man missing; total, 133.

The 41st Ohio's first commander was its brigade commander at Shiloh, William Hazen. Hazen would end up as one of the top division commanders in the West and commanded the XV Corps at the end of the war. Hazen was a Regular Army officer who trained his volunteers very well and the 41st Ohio ended up being one of the very good regiments in the West.
