About John Fitz, Jr. (USA)

John did service during the Civil War with the 160th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Company E.

Ohio Volunteer Infantry was a one hundred days troop. John mustered in May 2, 1864 age 42, in Zanesville, Ohio and Mustered out age 42, September 7, 1864 in Zanesville, Ohio

Their first duty was guarding a supply train to Martinsburg intended for General Siegel's army, then operating in that quarter of Virginia. On it's return, it was placed in the First Brigade, First Division of General Hunter's army, and May 25th, moved with it to Woodstock, West Virginia; thence, toward the front, but was detached and sent back to Martinsburg, in charge of a supply train. Reaching the vicinity of Middletown, it was discovered that Mosby's guerrillas had made a dash on another train, in the rear. Colonel Reasoner, with one hundred and sixty men, marched to the aid of the train, and after a sharp fight with the enemy succeeded in saving a large amount of Government property. The conduct of the troops under fire, was cool, daring and determined. A number were wounded, none killed. The Regiment was kept almost continually marching and counter marching through the Shenandoah Valley, very often in charge of large wagon trains, on which Mosby's and other rebel bands of guerrillas would make dashes, involving much skirmishing and danger, through all of which the Regiment conducted itself handsomely. During most of the time it was without tents or camping equipage.
