Brief History

The 1st Ohio Artillery Militia was organized before the Civil War began, under Colonel James Barnett. After serving three months in West Virginia, it was mustered for three years September 3, 1861.[1] See 1st Regiment, Ohio Light Artillery for the continued history.

"Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" by Frederick H. Dyer contains no history for this unit.[2]

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 Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 150 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
