Clark County's Civil War Soldiers

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


First known as the Second Ohio Cavalry, and raised under the direction of Gen. Fremont — upon his removal, Gov. Dennison changed its number to the Fifth. Its rendezvous was Camp Dick Corwine, near Cincinnati. It left for the field February 28, 1862, and was mustered-out October 30, 1865. About ten pages of Reid's valuable work are devoted to the outline history of this corps. As will be seen from the following, furnished by Sergt. Isaac Kindle, Clark County was well represented in teh Fifth Cavalry. Most of the men from here were in Company C, though there was a few in other companies. Capt. J.H. Hyde, from Greene County, was the first commander of Company C.
