Seeking primary source suggestions on this regiment's Gettysburg service. Beyond the report of LTCOL Bown in the OR and the various bits in "Freeman's Ford to Bentonville" published in 1998.
Also any verification/denial of the statement that this regiment was consolidated with parts of the 50th and 52d Ohios in 1862 prior to leaving for the front (which does not make much sense as these units served in the western theaters).
Finally any biographical info on Col. Stephen J. McGroarty.
