ROLL of HONOR
of OHIO'S RANK and FILE
from MAHONING COUNTY, OHIO
in the WAR of the REBELLION
(Transcribed by Sharon Wick)
EXPLANATORY NOTE. - So far as the most diligent and patient research
could find the record, the following roster presents the name of
every soldier who went out from this county in the war of 1861-5,
and of present residents of the county who enlisted elsewhere.
Where the town or township is not otherwise located, the enlistment
was usually in Mahoning county, if in an Ohio regiment; where no
rank is given, the soldier was mustered in as a private; where the
soldier is credited with veteran service, the re-enlistment was into
the same regiment and company, unless otherwise stated.
Although, as our title indicates, this roster is mainly composed of
the "Rank and File," who fought our battles and won our victories,
it also includes general field, line and staff officers, where any
such belong to the county. The record of Ohio regiments in the
field has been given in the preceding MILITARY HISTORY of OHIO, and
the children and children's children of the soldiers of the county
have just cause for pride in connecting the names given in the local
roster, by their regiments, with the history given on previous
pages, of the achievements of these regiments. In preparing
this book the publishers, while sparing no effort and no expense to
make it a full and complete history of Ohio in the War of the
Rebellion, devoting every page to the legitimate purposes of
history, are yet aware that errors may have inadvertently crept in.
They believe their patrons, realizing the magnitude of the work,
will not be unduly censorious over any such errors. The book
ahs grown beyond the limit originally intended, and it is believed
the soldiers for whom it has been written will appreciate the result
attained. The following is the key to the abbreviations used
in the local roster:
