My original list of soldiers came from the
Official Roster of
the Soldiers of the State of Ohio in the War of the Rebellion,
On my list of soldiers of the 120th OVI, I have 1093 men listed including Officers and Staff.
NEW in the History link is a collection of news clippings, letters,
selections from diaries and from old original books that will give
you a feeling for the lives and battles of the soldiers of the 120th OVI.

How to obtain a government headstone for unmarked veteran graves: http://www.cem.va.gov/hmm/
by Edgar A. Guest
The finest tribute
we can pay
Unto our hero
Is not a rose
wreath, white and red,
In memory of
the blood they shed;
It is to stand
beside each mound,
Each couch of
And pledge ourselves
as warriors true
Unto the work
they died to do.
[Complete poem here.].
