Brief History

The 1st Regiment, Ohio Light Artillery mustered in between August and December 1861 at various places in Ohio.  They were mustered out June through August 1865. [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.
