Brief History

The 13th Regiment, Ohio Cavalry mustered in May 5, 1864.  They were mustered out August 10, 1865 at Amelia and Powhatan Counties. [1]

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 Crawford County[2]

Company F - Many men from Union County[3]

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 2586 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.

County listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part II Revised, is given on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web page, 13th Ohio Cavalry. Web Publishing Copyright © 2012
