Inscription. During the battle of Iuka on Sept. 19, 1862, the 11th Ohio battery repulsed four Confederate assaults before finally being overrun by the 3rd Texas Cavalry, 3rd Louisiana Infantry and the Texas Legion. Of the fifty-four cannoneers in the battery, forty-six were killed or wounded in the action, and more than 100 men from both sides were killed in the struggle for the battery. The losses of the 11th Ohio at Iuka were the greatest of any light artillery battery in a single battle during the Civil War.
