Brief History

The 72nd Regiment, Ohio Infantry mustered in October, 1861, to February, 1862 at Fremont, Ohio.  They were mustered out September 11, 1865 at Vicksburg, Mississippi. [1] The regiment was also known as the Buckland Zouave Cadets, after Ralph Pomeroy Buckland, who raised the regiment.[2]

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

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.

Company A - many men from Sandusky County and Erie County.[3]

Company B - many men from Sandusky County[3]

Company C - many men from Sandusky County and Wood County[3]

Company D - many men from Sandusky County.[3] and a few men from Hancock County - see Roster

Company E - many men from Sandusky County and Wood County[3]

Company F - many men from Sandusky County[3]

Company G - many men from Erie County.[3]

Company H - many men from Sandusky County and Erie County.[3]

Company I - many men from Sandusky County[3]

Company K - many men from Medina County.[3] On January 24, 1862, Company K was distributed to other companies, and a company of the 52nd Regiment, Ohio Infantry (Old) took its place.[4]

The above information about counties is from Richard L. Manion's book, Sandusky County, Ohio, Civil War Soldiers.[4]

Short biographies of the soldiers in this regiment are in Homer Everett's book, History of Sandusky County, (Cleveland, Ohio: H. Z. Williams, 1882), pages 289-327, not in alphabetical order. Internet Archive.
