Description

Ohio played a major role in the Civil War, which, for most soldiers, was the grand event of their lives. Ohio regiments were formed, soldiers were conscripted, and battles were fought in places Ohioans didn't know existed. This collection gathers together primary materials from memoirs, newspapers, and literature to trace Ohioans' participation in the war. The collection is built chronologically from the start of the conflict to the return of soldiers after the final battles. When available, participants post-war lives are documented.
