Brief History

The 96th Regiment was organized at Camp Delaware, Ohio, August 29, 1862. It mustered out July 7, 1865, possibly at Mobile, Alabama, since it had duty at Mobile in July[1].

For more information about the 96th Regiment and its history,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.

The list of companies with their counties and their rosters are on the Ninety Sixth Ohio Volunteer Infantry web site[1].
