Regimental History
Forty-sixth Infantry.— Cols., Thomas Worthington, Charles C. Walcutt; Lieut.-Cols., William Smith, Isaac N. Alexander, Edward N. Upton; Majs., Henry H. Giesy, John B. Neil. This regiment was organized at Worthington, from Oct. 23, 1861, to Jan. 28, 1862, to serve for three years. It was sent to the field from Camp Chase in Feb., 1862, with an aggregate of 975 men, and reported at Paducah, Ky. It was engaged during the entire battle of Shiloh, with a loss of 280 killed and wounded, and 15 captured. It remained upon that field until April 27, when it moved with the army upon Corinth. Early in June, 1863, it was transported to Vicksburg and participated in the siege of that place. In the campaign against Jackson, Miss., the regiment suffered greatly from heat and the scarcity of water. At the battle of Missionary ridge it was engaged severely and sustained a heavy loss in killed and wounded. Immediately after this battle the regiment moved on the Knoxville campaign, and having raised the siege of that place marched to Scottsboro, Ala., for winter quarters. There it veteranized and after its furlough home returned to camp. On May 1, 1864, it moved in the direction of Chattanooga and thence by way of Snake Creek gap to Resaca, where it was actively engaged for three days, but with slight loss. In two engagements at Dallas the Spencer rifles of the regiment caused such havoc in the charging columns, that ever after the 46th was known and dreaded throughout the opposing army. In the assault at Kennesaw mountain the regiment captured 60 prisoners, but its own loss in killed and wounded was severe. The regiment was engaged in skirmishing about Atlanta until July 22, when it assisted in repelling an attack on the 17th corps. From this time it was constantly engaged in skirmishing and participated in Sherman's flank movement to Jonesboro. On Sept. 2, it was again engaged and succeeded in capturing the enemy's fortified skirmish line. It shared in the final movements of Sherman's army, and was mustered out on July 22, 1865. During its term of service it lost 20 men captured and 705 men killed, wounded and died of disease.
