    Standardt's Battery - Co. B

90th OH Infantry

Companies A - I and K

Three of the 90th OVI colorbearers at the close of the war: Andrew Irvin, David Goodwin, and Jacob Cockerill. 

    The  90th  OH  lost

          252 men

      during the War:




     82  were killed in action or    

             mortally wounded


           170   died of disease


The 90th OH Volunteer Infantry was organized in July 1862, at Camp Circleville, OH, in Pickaway County. Most of the men were drawn from Fairfield, Fayette, Hocking, Perry, Pickaway, and Vinton Counties located in the south-central part of the state.  The regiment was musterd in on 29 Aug 62, as a three-year enlistment.  Its first Colonel was Isaac N. Ross.













The 90th were positioned within two milles of Perryville, KY on 8 Oct 62, but were not permitted to engage in the battle, due perhaps to their being so newly organized.  A few months later, the men would be part of the Battle of Stones River, this being their "baptism by fire".  


The men of the original regiment were mustered out on 13 Jul 65, at Camp Harker, TN.  Recruits who had joined up with the 90th in 1863, were mustered out on 3 Oct 65 in Victoria, TX.
