Ohio provided the federal government with 260 regiments of men during the Civil War.

More than 260 regiments and about 330,000 Ohioans served in the Civil War. Among those men were more than 5,000 African-Americans. The Ohioans served in infantry, artillery and cavalry units, and participated in some of the most famous battles and campaigns of the War, including the pivotal turning points at Gettysburg and Vicksburg in 1863.

Over the course of time, we intend to provide an entry on this site for each unit, including the men who were assigned to each unit and the battles they fought in.
