89th Ohio Infantry (USA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Wesley Rowe AdamsRank: Captain Company: K

One of my great grandfathers. His brother, Nelson Adams, also served with this unit. Captain Adams was captured during the Battle of Chickamauga and sent to Libby Prison. After 4 months and 9 days, he escaped through a tunnel, along with 108 other prisoners, and rejoined his unit for General Sherman's campaign against Atlanta, Georgia. While later serving under General Thomas, he was appointed as Colonel of the 175th Ohio Infantry (USA) but before his commission arrived, the 175th was so reduced in numbers at the Battle of Franklin that he was not able to muster in as their Colonel. He was not successful in his efforts to reconstitute the regiment and returned home at the conclusion of the war.
