=== Ohio Military Units ===
<br>The information in the lists of Ohio military units comes from the [http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/ Civil War Soldiers and Sailors] web site. This web site can also be searched by the name of a soldier. The [http://www.ogs.org/cwc/index.php Ohio Civil War Genealogy Center] by the Ohio Genealogical Society uses the same data as the CWSS, but its search engine is much more flexible, allowing for searches by partial name and Soundex.
