In the American Civil War, Ohio provided the federal government with 260 regiments of men, including infantry, artillery, and cavalry units. Ohioans also served in several other regiments from other states, most notably from Kentucky, West Virginia, and Massachusetts, as well as in federal units. Almost 330,000 Ohio men, including 5,092 African Americans, served in the Union military during the conflict.

Infantry regiments formed in Ohio became known as regiments of Ohio Volunteer Infantry. In March 1865, the 193rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry organized at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. The men in the regiment were to serve a one-year term of enlistment.

In March 1865, authorities dispatched the 193rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry to Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia and then to Halltown, West Virginia. The regiment became part of the Army of the Shenandoah. The 193rd Regiment then moved to Charlestown, West Virginia, where it remained until the men advanced up the Shenandoah Valley to Winchester, Virginia. The regiment remained on provost-marshal duty at Winchester until August 4, 1865. On this date, the men mustered out of service. The 193rd Regiment then went to Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. The regiment was discharged on August 9, 1865.

Unfortunately for the soldiers, the Civil War ended a few weeks after the regiment’s formation in March 1865, preventing the soldiers of the 193rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry from seeing any combat in the American Civil War. The regiment did lose twenty-nine men due to disease or accidents. Despite not engaging in combat as the 193rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, many of the regiment’s enlisted men had served in other regiments of Ohio Volunteer Infantry earlier in the war.
