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. On March 10, 1865, the 191st Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry organized for military duty at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. The men in the regiment were to serve a one-year term of enlistment.

On March 10, 1865, authorities dispatched the 191st Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry to Winchester, Virginia. Before arriving in Winchester, the regiment was redeployed to Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, where it became part of the Army of the Shenandoah. Unfortunately for the regiment, the Civil War ended in April 1865, and the soldiers of the 191st Regiment of Ohio Volunteer Infantry saw no combat. The regiment advanced to Winchester, Virginia in May 1865, where it served on garrison duty until August 27, 1865, when it mustered out of duty. The regiment then returned to Columbus, Ohio, arriving on September 3, 1865. The regiment disbanded a few days later.
