Infantry Units: 142nd 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 May 13, 1864, to serve 100 days. It was composed of the 22nd Battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Knox County, 68th Battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Williams County, and a part of the 69th Battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Coshocton County. On the 14th of May the Regiment left Columbus, Ohio for Martinsburg, WV, where it remained, drilling, until the 19th of May, when it left for Washington City. From Washington, it marched to Fort Lyon. The Regiment remained at Fort Lyon until the 5th of June, when orders were received to report to General Albercombie at White House Landing. The Regiment took steamer at Alexandria on the 7th of June and arrived at White House on the 9th, but was immediately sent to guard a supply train through the Wilderness to General Grant's front, near Cold Harbor. The Regiment was then ordered to report at Bermuda Hundred, but without being permitted to land, it was conveyed, on transports, to Point of Rocks. On the 19th of August, the Regiment received orders to repair to Washington City, and thence to Camp Chase, Ohio, where it mustered out September 2, 1864 on expiration of term of service.
