Note: This page is under redesign. The persons with links below have been researched to some extent and information is available on each of them on their respective pages. More soldiers are coming as time permits to do the research. The header above listing rankings breaks down the Official Roster into smaller sizes making browsing easier, or you can view the full roster. As time permits, more soldiers will be researched. Feel free to look at the sidebar for recent soldier additions.

This page is organized by last name, and the information on this page comes from the book, The Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio in the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1866, Volume II. Notes are from the Roster, but may be paraphrased and the dates are adjusted to a DD MM YYYY format for consistency with the dates listed on the rest of the website. All soldiers enlisted for a 3 year term, so that column of information has intentionally been left out of this page.
