Brief History

The book "Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" by Frederick H. Dyer contains no history for this unit[1] This company was formed from one company of men who re-enlisted from the 192nd Infantry which was to serve 100 days. Five other companies were recruited in the spring of 1865 in Gallipolis, Ohio. This company was mustered out in August 1865.

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.
