Ohio.--The quota due from the State of Ohio, under the various calls for troops, was 306,322 men. The quota was not only promptly filled, but several thousand additional troops were furnished. Ohio sent 313,180 men to the war, and paid commutation on 6,479 more; total, 319,659. But many of the regiments enlisted for a few months only, and, hence, the Ohio enlistments, when reduced to a three-years' standard, were equivalent to 240,514 men.

The Roll of Honor from the State includes 35,475 men who died in the service: of these, 11,588 fell in battle; 19,365 died of disease; 2,711 died while in the hands of the enemy; the remainder died from accidents, and various other causes, known and unknown.

Missing numbers occur in the list of Ohio regiments for the following reasons: the 44th Infantry was changed to the 8th Cavalry; the 109th Regiment failed to complete its organization, and the men were transferred to the 113th Ohio; the 112th, 119th, and 158th Regiments, also, failed to perfect their organizations, and their recruits were assigned to other regiments; the 13th Light Battery did not complete its organization; the 23d Battery was changed to Simmonds's Kentucky Battery, it having been formed by detaching Company E, 1st
