Clark County's Civil War Soldiers

From The History of Clark County, Ohio
Chicago: W.H. Beers & Co., 1881


This company was a regularly established body of militia, before the breaking-out of the war; in its ranks was some of the best blood of the county. It promptly responded the call to arms. The 16th of April found it at Columbus, where it was mustered into the service of the United States for three months. On the 3d day of May, following, it was re-organized for three years. Gen. J. Warren Keifer was a private in this company when it left Clark County. He was chosen Major during the organizations at columbus. This article is compiled from data furnished by Maj. James C. Vanada. It is somewhat confused as to be three months' and three years' men, but it is believed to contain every name of both services.
