The 57th Regiment, Ohio Infantry mustered in September 16, 1861 at Camp Vance, Findlay, Ohio.  They were mustered out August 14, 1865 at Rock, Arkansas. [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.


Companies by County:
Company A - Many men from Logan and Putnam Counties.
Company B - Many men from Hancock, Seneca and Wood Counties.
