    This is a listing of soldiers for the 2th Art from Charles Shaw who used the above sources to compile service records for many Hamilton county Civil War veterans.  These soldiers had either enlisted or resided at some time within the county.  From these sources it is unknown which of these men were residents of the county at the time of enlistment (although most likely those who enlisted within the county were residents).

    Please note that information from the 1890 census records, now online, is not part of this compilation!  Look for the 1890 census records on our Military Page.

    Info includes (but may be missing portions thereof):  name, company, regiment, enlistment date, enlistment location, residence according to Aber & King in (  )*, age at enlistment, service record [discharge date, reason, muster out info, etc.], burial place.
