67th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment



      The 67th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment served in the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865. It is listed among the top 300 Union infantry regiments, and took part in many famous battles. During Stonewall Jackson's famous "Valley Campaign" in 1862 the regiment took part in the battles of Winchester and Kernstown , the latter being Jackson's only defeat in his career. At Kernstown, the 67th was under the command of Lieut. Colonel Alvin C. Voris, in Colonel Nathan Kimball's brigade. (Brigadier General James Shield's division). Later, on July 18, 1863, the 67th took part in the ill-fated charge on Fort (Battery) Wagner, right beside the 54th Massachusetts (Colored) Infantry, as depicted in the movie "Glory". In 1864-5 the 67th participated in the seige and capture of Fredericksburg, and the eventual surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomatox.
