Infantry Units: 4th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry

Cavalry units were recruited from all over the state. Those represented in detail here are the ones recruited primarily from northwest Ohio counties and those whose members wrote to local newspapers. More information will be added as it becomes available.

This Regiment was organized at Camp Dennison and Camp Gurley, Ohio, in November 1861 with the exception of Companies L and M, which were organized August 15, 1862, at Cincinnati, Ohio, to serve three years. The original members (except veterans) were mustered out by detachments in October 1864, by reason of expiration of term of service, and the organization, composed of veterans and recruits, retained in service until July 15, 1865, when it was mustered out in accordance with orders from the War Department.
