Infantry Units: 84th Ohio Volunteer Infantry
Infantry units were recruited from all over the state. Those represented in detail here are the ones recruited primarily from northwest Ohio counties and those whose members wrote to local newspapers. More information will be added as it becomes available.
This Regiment was organized at Camp Chase, Ohio in May and June 1862 to serve three months, and on June 11, 1862 was ordered to Cumberland, Maryland, where it was employed in preventing transportation of supplies into the Rebel lines.
On September 13, the Regiment was ordered to New Creek, WV, where an attack was anticipated by Rebel forces. The enemy retired without making an attack, and the Regiment was ordered to Camp Chase for muster-out. It was ordered from Camp Chase to Camp Delaware, where it was mustered out on September 20, 1862, after having served about a month longer than its term of enlistment.
