This is my Great Great Grandfather, Daniel Duvall.  He served with the 121st Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment from 1862-1865.  He attained the rank of sergeant and had the honor of being the regimental standard bearer.  He fought at Perryville, Chickamauga, Kennesaw Mountain, and Bentonville.  He also took part in the Grand Review in Washington DC.  Duvall settled in Michigan and is buried in a small cemetery in McBain.

This is the monument to the 121st Ohio at Chickamauga.  It is near this spot that the 121st captured the battleflag of the 22nd Alabama during hand to hand combat.
