UPDATE: Dec. 2008 - Info taken from a Parkersburg News Article (Sunday, May 14, 1964). Original article was supplied by Dale T. French. He is a descendant of William C. & Mariah (Patten) Wright. (NOTE: Article not copied exactly how it was written because of copyright.)

David WRIGHT of Warren Township, Washington County, Ohio was 21 years old when he enlisted for 3 years on October 6, 1862 as a Private of 92nd OVI, Company G when it was organized in Marietta, Ohio. Companies F, G, and H were formed from Washington County. DAVID was in the army for almost a year when the 92nd became heavily involved as part of Turchin’s Brigade Division. This division was commanded by Major William S. Rosencrans, known by his men as “Old Rosey.”

David’s older brother, Benjamin “Stokely” Wright enlisted as a Sergeant on August 1, 1861 at the age of 23 years with Company F of the 36th OVI. Companies A and F was formed from Washington County. Stokely had been in a veteran of several majors battles before his regiment also became a part of Turchin’s Brigade.

On Saturday, September 19, 1863 the 36th and 92nd OVI was in heavy fighting when they came under fire at Chickamauga. The regiments had just entered the battlefield after arriving by train to join Turchin’s Birgade. The men stood firm under repeated onslaughts by Longstreet’s Confederate Army. Colonel Benjamin Dana Fearing was wounded and carried from the field, and the command, so skillfully commanded by him, fell to Douglas Putnam, Jr., a Lieutenant Colonel from Marietta, Ohio, who then took command of the 92nd regiment.

Early on the morning of Sunday, the 20th, the regiment moved forward into the woods in front of their bivouac, and were placed behind a breastwork of logs and wood facing south, and kept up a brisk fire upon the enemy's line until noon, when firing almost ceased, and the regiment was drawn back and lay in double column unengaged till about 4 p. m. About this time the regiment moved with the brigade up the Chattanooga road, a short distance above Kelly's house, when line of battle was formed facing southwest. The line was then faced by the rear rank to the northeast and ordered to charge a line of the enemy drawn up in solid column across the road.

The 92nd regiment led the charge on the right, now become the left, and with the other regiments drove the rebels across the field and over the hill and came out at a battery stationed on the hill north of the woods, belonging to Granger's corps. After receiving a volley from the enemy, with bayonets fixed and a shout, the 92nd rushed forward and in utter confusion forced them to abandon a part of a battery and throw away their arms. A colonel and several officers were taken prisoners by my men.

After resting in line of battle for an hour and a half the regiment moved with the brigade down the road to a point about 2 miles from Rossville, where we bivouacked for the night. We lost in the charge 3 commissioned officers wounded, 12 men wounded, 15 men missing. We sent back a number of prisoners, who were taken to Chattanooga. The entire loss of the two days' fight was as follows: Killed, 6; wounded, 62; officers, 6; missing.

On October 27, 1863, the 92nd & 36th OVI was a participant in the capture of Browns Ferry before participating in the capture of Mission Ridge in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As many men from Washington County, Ohio was either wounded or killed, DAVID and STOKELY WRIGHT remained unharmed

The regiments remained in Chattanooga until February 22, 1864. The loss of the of the regiment severe. Within 20 minutes, 33% of the officers and 10% of the men engaged, though it took many prisoners and 2 guns. In latter part of February 1864, after the fight at Rocky Face Ridge the regiment lost many men, some of the wounded being burned in the blazing woods.

In the meantime, while this was all going on, WILLIAM WRIGHT, age 19, another brother was missing after being defeated at Rogersville, near Knoxville, Tennessee on November 26, 1863. WILLIAM WRIGHT was a resident of Wesley Township, Washington County, Ohio, when he enlisted at the age of 18 years old as a Private in Company H of the 7th Ohio Cavalry. No one knows if DAVID and/or STOKELY knew if their younger brother, WILLIAM died of disease while a POW at Andersonville prison in Georgia on April 24, 1864.

In the later part of March 1864, DAVID & STOKELY parted ways for the very last time. The 36th OVI returned to Washington County on a veterans furlough.

On May 14 & 15, 1864, the 92nd OVI was in battle at Resaca. It lost but 2 men killed and 2 wounded. Then the 92nd & 36th joined the Turchin’s Brigade Division near Dallas, Georgia. Before the move began, Benjamin Dana Fearing, commander of the 92nd OVI resumed his place in the regiment after a 6 month leave while he was recuperating from a severe leg wound he received during the battle at Chickamauga.

In the later part of March 1864, DAVID & STOKELY parted ways for the very last time. The 36th OVI returned to Washington County on a veterans furlough. Two months later, STOKELY returned to duty, but took ill and died on May 20, 1864 at an Army hospital in Gallipolis, Ohio. Then on Sunday, July 17, 1864, DAVID died at an army hospital in Nashville, Tennessee, after his foot was amputated from a sever wound. At the time of David’s death, he was 22 years, 10 months & 17 days old.

Private DAVID, Private WILLIAM and Sergeant BENJAMIN "STOKELY" WRIGHT are buried in the Wright family lot at Tunnel Cemetery, Warren Township, Washington County, Ohio. Their parents, William C. and Mariah (Patten) Wright, and brother, Jesse who died on in 1857 are also buried nearby in the family lot. David and Stokely have matching headstones as they were companions that fought together through two of the fiercest battles of the Civil War.
