Brief History

The 40th Regiment, Ohio Infantry mustered in December 7, 1861 at Camp Chase, Columbus, Ohio.  Veterans and Recruits consolidated with 51st Ohio Infantry December 10, 1864. [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.
