The 91st Ohio was raised at VIII Corps under Brig. Gen. Eliakim Scammon. It participated in a series of raids and operations against Confederate positions in the region.

In the spring of 1864, the 91st Ohio fought in the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad, an important Confederate supply line. Later that year, it fought in the Battle of Piedmont and participated in the Valley Campaigns of 1864, including the battles of Berryville, Opequon or Third Winchester, Fisher's Hill, and Cedar Creek.[1]

During the remainder of the war, the regiment divided its time between garrison duty at Cumberland, Maryland, and Winchester, Virginia. The 91st Ohio Regiment was mustered out at Cumblerland on June 24, 1865, and transported by train back to Ohio.

During its time of service, the regiment lost 3 Officers and 60 enlisted men killed and mortally wounded, and another 3 Officers and 87 enlisted died of disease, making a loss of 153 soldiers.[2]
