Brief History[edit | edit source]

The 149th Regiment, Ohio Infantry (National Guard) was organized at Camp Dennison, Ohio, May 8, 1864.  They were sent to Berryville August 13 and mustered out August 30, 1864.[1]

For more information on the history of this unit, see:

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in  a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded.  However if you are unsure which company your ancestor  was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

  • Seven companies were from Ross County. Originally these companies were called the 27th Regiment, Ohio National Guard (O.N.G.)[2]
  • Three companies were from Clinton County. These companies had been part of the 55th Battalion.[3]
