Excerpt from History of the Eighty-Third Ohio Volunteer Infantry: The Greyhound Regiment Fifty years have passed since the eighty-third regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, was organized. Fifty years have passed since those one thousand men entered the service of their Country and marched with deadly weapons to meet other thousands equally armed. Why? It seems more than right and proper that some words should be said in answer to this query. Was the reason a good Que, why these should leave their occupations of production and enter on one of destruction? Let a few comparisons be made the better to understand this reason.
