Brief History

The 144th Regiment, Ohio Infantry (National Guard) was a consolidation of the 19th Battalion, Ohio National Guard of Wyandot County and the 64th Battalion, Ohio National Guard of Wood County.[1]

The 144th Regiment was organized at Camp Chase, Ohio, and mustered in May 11, 1864. They were ordered home and mustered out August 31, 1864.[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 Wyandot County.[3] See roster.

Company D - many men from Wyandot County.[3] See roster.

Company G - many men from Wyandot County.[3] See roster.

Company H - many men from Wyandot County.[4] See roster.

Company K - many men from Wyandot County.[4] See roster.

A county listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part V Revised, is given on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web page, 144th Ohio Infantry.
