OnAugust 6, 1862, Henry enlisted in the 110th Ohio Volunteer Infantry atPiqua, OH, and was assigned to Company A after receiving an"enlistment bonus" of $25. Henry served under General Nathaniel Banksagainst the forces of "Stonewall" Jackson at the ill-fated Battle ofWinchester, VA. Following the Battle of Gettysburg, Henry was withthe 110th OVI during their pursuit of General Robert E. Lee toManassas Gap, VA. Henry was with the 110th OVI when that regiment wasdeployed to New York City to quell the anti-draft and anti-Lincolnriots taking place there (recently depicted in the movie "Gangs of NewYork"). Henry saw service at the Battle of the Wilderness and theBattle of Spottsylvania serving with the forces of General U. S.Grant. Henry saw service in the pouring rain at the "Mule ShoeSalient" at Bloody Angle. Henry was with Grant at Cold Harbor whereUnion forces suffered 7,000 casualties in one half-hour period. Henrywas wounded in a skirmish near Smithfield, VA, was sent to a fieldhospital at Annapolis, MD, and thence to an army hospital inPhiladelphia, PA. Henry recovered and rejoined the 110th OVI in thetrenches at the Battle of Petersburg.
