Brief History

The 99th Regiment was organized at Camp Lima, Allen County, Ohio, and mustered in August 26, 1862. It was consolidated with 50th Ohio Infantry December 31, 1864[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.

County listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part V, Revised, is on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web site for the 99th Ohio Infantry
