My own Ohio ancestors served in the War of 1812 and the Civil war. Finding their names in books has been important in helping me populate the stories of the lives, their adventures and in some cases their deaths.
In days gone by, I had to spend many of my precious Family History Library research hours looking for information about their military service. Now, thanks to Google Books, most of that type of research is done from home online at any time of the day.
The book, “Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio in the War of Rebellion, 1861-1866, and in the War with Mexico 1846-1848”has long been one of my favorite resources.
Thanks to Google, the book is shown below for your own research enjoyment.
