On March 16th, 1862, William Patterson and the 1st OVI, along with the Army of Ohio, left Nashville, Tennessee and marched to the Duck River, immediately across the river from Columbia, Tennessee. The Army arrived at the river on March 21 and went into camp awaiting the completion of a bridge across the Duck River. On March 31, 1862, the bridge was completed and the Army of Ohio crossed the river and began moving towards Savannah, Tennessee to join with General Grant’s army.
