The twenty second Ohio served within the Western Theater and took part within the Battles of Forts Henry and Donelson, Corinth and Vicksburg. The regiment mustered out between Nov. 18, 1864, and Aug. 28, 1865. This picture is a part of the Tom Liljenquist Household Assortment of Civil Battle images on the Library of Congress.
