Ohio's Edward F. Noyes-- Part 2

Edward F. Noyes eventually rose through the ranks to colonel of the 39th Ohio (when Cadman wrote about his poor service at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain.

He was wounded in battle on July 4, 1864, near Ruff's Mills, Georgia, and had his left leg amputated.  Three months later, Major General Joseph Hooker assigned him to command Camp Dennison in Cincinnati.

After the war, he resigned his commission and became city solicitor of Cincinnati and was elected governor of Ohio in 1871 and served until 1974.
