Infantry Units: 191st 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 in the State of Ohio at large, in January and February 1865 to serve one year. The Regiment left Columbus, Ohio on the day of its organization under orders to proceed to Winchester, Virginia and report to Major General Hancock, then organizing the First Army Corps at that place. At Harper's Ferry, the Regiment was halted, by command of General Hancock, and ordered to report to General John R. Brooke, and assigned to the Second Brigade, Second Division, Army of the Shenandoah. Its only service was garrison duty in the valley, marching as far south as Winchester, where it remained until August 27, 1865, when it was mustered out in accordance with orders from the War Department.
