Charles Gustavus Barnd taught school in Portage Township, 18 miles from Findlay, when he was 18 years old. Later he attended St. Joseph's Academy in Somerset, Ohio where he studied to be a Jesuit Priest, having been raised in the Catholic faith. His aunt was a strong Catholic, and she probably persuaded him to take this course. He had a row with his Superior and decided the Priesthood was not for him. As a result he was placed under a curse, -- either by the Priest or his aunt, -- to the effect that his children -- ( his descendants might also have been included) -- would work very hard for what they really wanted, and then through improvidence throw it away.

He served in the Union Army during the war between the States (the Civil War) from July 10,1862 to September 27, 1864. He entered service as a 1st Lt., and shortly thereafter was promoted to Captain in the 99th O.V.I. (Ohio Volunteer Infantry) serving under Colonel Longworthy His military service began July 10, 1862. and by authority of Ohio's Governor he recruited men for Company G. He kept a diary during the war. William Barndt has the original hand written notebook, but a transcription is made part of this file. Battles mentioned included Chickamauga and Lookout Mountain. Excerpts from a report by Colonel Peter T. Swaine on pages 848-849 and 850 of "The War of the Rebellion Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies: included: "That night we marched back to Gordon's Mills, and on the morning of the 19th we participated in the great battle". (Apparently at Chattanooga,, since the report was dated Sept. 26, 1863 at Chattanooga, Tennessee). *** Capt. Harrison Strong volunteered to advance skirmishers upon the enemy when they were reported marching upon us at a certain point, and he with Captain Barnd and Lt. Connell were very efficient as commanders of skirmishers."


(Charles Gustavus report of the battle for Lookout Mountain - is excerpted from his Diary).

Monday November 23, 1863
By 9 a.m. we were in the war moving up the river toward Chattanooga. After marching 20 miles we came to an abrupt halt. The pontoon bridge was gone and nothing was left for us to do but turn in for the night. The march was probably one of the most trying character. Tired and sleepy I lay down.

Tuesday Nov. 24
Reversing the line of March, the Brigade recrossed the railroad and rapidly formed in line
at the foot of Moccasin Ridge on the western slope. "What's up?" everybody asked. Heaps of unslung knapsacks, piled along the way, looked very suspicious. But this last maneuver made us think seriously of an immediate attack from the enemy.

A Division marched in front, and another formed in the rear of our line, now strengthened by the Third Brigade of our Division under Colonel Gross. All of us thought the enemy must certainly come over the hill, and there we lay anxiously awaiting the first crack of a rifle or booming of canon which should announce the work of death begun. Silence was undisturbed -- save by the peremptory commands "Fall In, Right Face, Forward March". Soon the head of our column passed noiselessly around the foot of that hill, and disappeared from sight for a time , while we in turn followed. As we passed around the eastern slope of the ridge, away up the apparently precipitous sides of Lookout Mountain the head of our column loomed in sight. 'Twas glorious thus to view our soldiers advancing up the sides of that mountain, on which three powerful armies have been accustomed to look with dread and fear.

Passing down to Lookout Creek and over it on a log, we followed until about half way up the mountain. There, we formed in three lines, the right resting at the foot of steep limestone bluffs which form an insurmountable barrier along nearly the entire range of this mountain, and the left resting nearly in the valley and facing to the north and in front of the mountain. Gray's Division of the XII Army Corps was in the first line in front of us, Gross and Whitacre's Brigades formed the second, and Osterlain's Division of the 16th A.C. formed the third line. The 149 N.Y. to advance as skirmishers The lines being arranged after some trouble, we moved forward, crossing ravines whose sides were nearly straight up and down, clambering over rocks and under stashed timbers. These were obstacles.

But the torrent were as easily stayed as these long living lines, - or, more to the point - mile after mile was passed. Still, as before, all was quiet. No living being was there. From the wild dismal heaps of rocks might issue the panther, disturbed for the first time by the intrusion of man. But untamed nature did not disturb us. There was other cause of fear. But where are the defenders of "Lookout"? None could answer and we moved on in silence. ---- Then a volley boomed from the foot of the mountain, away down beneath us, and near the Tennessee. Still all was silent on our lines. Then we heard the crack of a rifle near our line of skirmishers. Then another followed - and another - now a volley - bullets hissed past us striking "thug" in the trees and ground.

We moved on until we were into the enemy's camp, where cooking, washing, and other duties usual to camp life was going on. They threw down everything and surrendered. Then a little skirmishing commenced on our lines. Bullets from sharpshooters, who had scattered themselves among the rocks in inaccessible places along the curving ledge, came down upon us with terrible effect. Soon it increased until a general engagement raged. This fire was murderous. While passing a deep ravine Isaac Baldwin of my Company was shot in the leg. He fell. I sent Braden and a boy of I Company to take him back. Near him, my friend, Captain W.T. Exline fell, severely wounded in the hip. Then Abraham Newell of G. Company fell, wounded about like Baldwin was wounded. Many a good boy fell by me here. Everybody sought to screen themselves from these fellows while he pressed forward. The enemy's breast works were now in sight. Moving forward rapidly, our lines fairly run. From the front a heavy fire on our skirmishers in the first line caused us to halt. "They are holding us." said a messenger.

There were no regular works except those on the end and facing Chattanooga Our men dashed through the first line, and rushed into the Works. Jacob Butler of company G was the first man there. Surrounded by 500 rebels, he ordered the Major commanding these troops to give up his sword. The Major refused, assigning as a reason that Butler was not an Officer, and hence he would not give up his sword. Butler replied by lowering his rifle and saying "I am a soldier and you'll give it to me or I'll shoot you". The sword was unbuckled and Butler handed it to an Officer of the 40th O.V.I. who happened to come in.

Rebels throwing down their arms came to us by hundreds. Some concealed themselves under rocks and in crevices until in our rear, when they hustled off down the mountain for a place of safety. Some hundred men were captured. But our men did not wait to count prisoners, and dashing on captured two forts ; the third the enemy held with great determination for they had received reinforcements and now moved forward and tried to turn our left flank But our men who now filled their Works, poured such deadly fire on them that they were forced back, although they continued to contend for it till nightfall. But it was useless, as thousands of fresh troops rushed up during the night and relieved us

Our Regiment behaved gallantly, and our Regimental colors waved over two of the three Works belonging to the enemy.

Sharpshooters from the summit continued to pour deadly volleys into us. They were far more annoying than any other troops. At night we lay down by fires, barely able to keep from freezing.

My Company was ordered out on the skirmish line, where we remained without meeting any remarkable difficulties till midnight, when we were relieved by Captain Rope and Company. I then slept in troubled dreaming, for with the morning comes a terrible struggle, and perhaps ere might I be among the dead. 'Twas an awful night. Morning came at last.

Wednesday, Nov. 25

A heavy mist hung over "Lookout", and the sun had been up more than an hour before a fresh stirring wind came which lifted the veil and unmasked the bleak and fearful cliff of "Lookout", from whence our enemy the day previous had hurled their leaden messengers of death against our lads. 'Twas awful to look up there, for as sure as I looked up I expected to feel a ball in my brain. But no noise came from there, though they couldn't help seeing us.

Curiosity overcame caution, and I ventured to look in that dreaded spot. Just then I saw our dear old flag raised, and a moment after its folds waved boldly and beautifully from "Lookout" cliffs. Such cheers. That bold ensign was mad with joy, and cheers rolled down our line of skirmishers, - were caught up by eager thousands, rolling on and on down into the valley and away over to Chattanooga where our soldiers stood upon the forts and ramparts, answering us cheer for cheer. That was the happiest moment of my life. I would not obliterate the happy picture from my memory under any possible consideration. When defeated and driven back from Chickamauga, my feelings were of indescribable anguish. But now to stand here and see the dear old flag waving a few feet above me, from the heights of that much dreaded "Lookout" height, ------ it was glorious! And to force a whole Brigade to quietly submit and surrender was good. I felt happy I had taken a hand in it.


Captain Barnd, who was feeling unwell when the troops left their camp at Chattanooga, retired from the field by permission of Colonel Cummins. shortly after the flag was raised on the heights, and went down the mountain to where the baggage lay, and remained there all day. Two days later, although he still felt ill and unable to return to the Regiment, he sent a body of stragglers to them. He then went back to Shell Mound. He had developed five boils on his face and neck, and feared he was coming down with typhoid fever.

While at Shell Mound he began getting up charges against his Regimental Commander, Col. Cummins. After working on them for about a week, they were circulated for signatures.
(Apparently many of the Officers felt the Colonel was an excessive drinker, and that this was causing problems.), Two days after they were circulated, he was reading by the fire when he heard a voice calling "Captain Barnd, Captain Barnd, Captain Barnd. Come here". His diary goes on to say:

"After stumbling and groping my way among the thick undergrowth, I found the man. It was Lt. Trimble. He brought me a note which read as follows:

Headquarters Company, 99th O.V.I.
December 9,1863
Dear Capt.
All is out. Sign the charges. You will be under arrest as soon as you return to camp. Burn this.

I obeyed. Then turning again to the book, I followed Vanderdicker and Cary, etc., till ---

Then I returned to camp, and after circulating freely looking over matters and things extensively, I returned to my own quarters. Lt. McConnel informed me that Adjutant Walkup, in full dress uniform, had entered and inquired for me. I ordered Lt. McConnel to report me present and ready to receive orders. In a few minutes he came. I determined that he should have a very pleasant reception if in my power to give one. So I was polite, smiled gracefully, and saluted him. He smiled: " Well, Captain, I'm getting used to this." "Yes, you should be by this time," I replied. He then proceeded in grand style with quite a quantity of dignity: "Captain Barnd, by order of Lt. Colonel Cummins," etc. "I will take", etc. And my naughty little sword went for the third time up to Regimental headquarters.

Again I am to remain at close quarters. My friends came to me during the day to administer comfort. Lt. Robertson rushed hurriedly in and demanded: "Capt. Barnd, I wish to borrow your sword. You will consider yourself under close arrest and stay here. You may wear you haversack providing there are no rations in it." Robertson is a splendid fellow.

The day wore on. not heavily indeed, for with a bevy of friends at my quarters how could time lay heavily upon me As Lt. King and I were busily engaged, Lt. Trimble came up and whispered to me: "Captain you will be released inside of an hour, Col. Cummins will send for all the line officers to meet at his tent and will ask them to withdraw the charges against him".

In less than five minutes, by order of Lt. Col. Cummins, I was at headquarters with nearly all the line, field and staff Officers of the Regiment. Col. Cummins addressed the audience as follows: "Charges are preferred against me. This morning I put Capt. Barnd under arrest.
But now I find so many of you are against me, Captain Barnd is released from arrest. Whether you determine to withdraw or prosecute the charges - whether or not I am guilty of the charges, I do not say - but you know if they are carried to conclusion I am ruined for life.
Now, gentlemen, I ask that you withdraw these charges, and in the future, I assure you, no occasion shall be given for complaint on this ground."

After he left, there was a general discussion, which was continued for several days. Many believed an habitual drunkard won't reform. Since twice as many believed the charges should be pushed through as those who wanted to be lenient, Capt. Barnd went up to Brigade headquarters and ordered the papers forwarded.


Capt. Barnd's diary included entries for March and April 1864 that left a mystery. He left his organization at Blue springs. which apparently was located only a few hours from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and went to Columbus, Ohio. Here he reported for duty and requested permission to take a squad to Charleston, South Carolina. Permission was granted, and four days later he left with his squad for New York City.

Arriving there two days later, he applied for transportation, but was informed that it would not be available for six days. During the wait he put his men up in a military barracks. He stayed at the Astor House.

He took advantage of this lay-over to enjoy New York. Hs diary states that he went all over Broadway the next day, and also visited Mr. Reeves, book importer. (He was an avid reader). During the following days he bought a phrenological chart, visited Barnum's Museum, purchased some military clothing, had some photographs taken, and purchased a portfolio of stationery, He visited Van Amburg's magazine as well as Harpers and Bros. Also Appletons. He attended the American Theatre, but didn't appreciate their style. On Sunday he planned to attend services at the Catholic Church. but upon entering a church that had a cross above the roof he found that it was an Episcopalian church. He stayed and wrote that he heard a good sermon on faith.

The following day he and his squad boarded the U.S. Transport, Fulton. Five days later they landed at Hilton Head Island where they boarded a vessel for Jacksonville, Florida.

The diary entry for the next day mentioned nasty weather, and how it was slowing down the ship The diary ends here.


What was his assignment? Why was he going to Florida? Did he have a special assignment for some action in that area? Or might he have been taking a squad of recruits back to his army base by way of Florida?

Official Government records show that on March 20, 1864 he was placed on detached service at Columbus, Ohio, to forward recruits to Regiments in the field. He was sent to Findlay, Ohio for recruits. On March 24, 1864, he was placed on detached duty in charge of Detachment of the Potomac. On May 20, 1864 he had apparently returned from FLORIDA, and was placed on detached service with Detachment of Recruits, Chattanooga. In July 1864, he returned to Company G, 99th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

In September 1864, Capt. Barnd resigned his commission and was discharged Sept, 27, 1864.

He had studied law during the summer of 1862, and after his military service he attended the University of Michigan Law College where he received his LL.B. in 1868. Graduate #252. . He and his brother James "Polk", who had also received a law degree from the University of Michigan Law College, founded a newspaper, The Reporter, June 18,1872 in Findlay Ohio. Later in the year he bought out his brother's interest. "The paper retained a respectable circulation until early in the second year when it drifted into a grange movement hoping to become a great enterprise among farmers and the farming community. It was a mistake. Changed to American Patron Property Journal".

He was also an active attorney, and a mine organizer. While he was mining attorney for American and English Corporations he and his family lived at 159 Ashland St. in Melrose Heights, Boston, Massachusetts. He brokered Real Estate and practiced law in both Findlay and Fostoria, Ohio. He had a cousin George Barnd (address unknown), and an uncle Mahlon and an uncle John of Findlay. He corresponded with Melissa Barnd of Findlay, and with Aaron Barnd of Van Buren, Ohio. He probably moved his family from Findlay to Fostoria, Ohio in 1881 or 1882.

One of his daughters died of a broken heart. The following account is in Charles Gustavus' own words, as extracted from the diary he kept: The quotations are compiled from several letters he wrote.
