In the American Civil War, Ohio provided the federal government with 260 regiments of men, including infantry, artillery, and cavalry units. Ohioans also served in several other regiments from other states, most notably from Kentucky, West Virginia, and Massachusetts, as well as in federal units. Almost 330,000 Ohio men, including 5,092 African Americans, served in the Union military during the conflict.

Infantry regiments formed in Ohio became known as regiments of Ohio Volunteer Infantry. In March 1865, the 190th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry began to be organized for military duty at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. The men in the regiment were to serve a one-year term of enlistment. Due to officials not being able to recruit enough men to form a regiment, the 190th never formed. The original members of the regiment were assigned to other regiments of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry.
