I had a number of relatives on both sides, North and South. To Co E, 78th OVI, belonged 3 of my relatives on my Mother's side of the family. They were, Alvertus, Seton, and Jacob Matson. A wonderful letter written by Seton before the fortifications of Vicksburg on June 12, 1863 may be found on this website.

Thank you for all you have done to help keep these histories alive.

My Great, Great Grandfather was Joseph Orlando Earich. Although he did not serve in the war, two of his brothers did with Company E, 78th OVI. Alexander C. Earich became a Corporal and James R. Earich a Sergeant. James was a color bearer and was wounded July 22, 1864 during the Battle of Atlanta. The website for the Ohio Historical Society in Columbus, Ohio has an exhibit titled: 'Fight for the Colors, the Ohio Battle Flag Collection'. The 78th is featured in this exhibit with an article titled 'The Price of Freedom: the 78th OVI and the Battle of Atlanta'. James Earich and several others from the 78th are named in this article with accounts of their roles in the battle. The site you have here for the 78th is excellent - well done.

My grandfather, Ulyston Snyder Ohio 78th co K was injured at Fort Henry. He died in 1900. My Dad never really knew him as my Dad was only 3 when his father died. I would be interested in knowing more about Ulyston. I probably am among a minority to have had such a close relative in the civil war.
