The 155th Regiment, Ohio Infantry (National Guard) was organized at Camp Dennison, Ohio, and mustered in May 8, 1864. They were ordered home for muster out August 19. They mustered out August 27.[1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

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.

County listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part V Revised, is given on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web page, 155th Ohio Infantry.
