THE SIXTH OHIO. LOVES AMERICA AND LIVIED HISTORY.
For 56 years the 6th OVI was portrayed by so many men and women that it's difficult to remember them all. It's say to say, but we recently rolled our flags up for the final time.
From 1861 to 1865 the State of Ohio sent nearly 320,000 men and boys to serve in the Union Army. Total casualties among these units numbered 35,475 men. The Sixth Ohio Living History Association was dedicated to preserving the memory of those who served while educating the public about this pivotal and defining moment in American History. The Sixth Ohio Volunteer Infantry was a family-based living history and reenactment group who's mission was to recreate as accurately as possible an infantry company of the Civil War.
The Sixth Ohio portrayed an impression primarily of Western Federal soldiers, and strived for the highest level of individual and unit authenticity and accuracy. We had members from Cincinnati, Columbus, Indiana, Northern Kentucky and their surrounding areas. We participated in several events each year including one day, weekend, and large national events.
We believed that authenticity and accuracy were essential to the creation of a high-quality interpretation of historical events and people. We tried to act as a military organization when in the field, and we made as few concessions to the present as we possibly could, using common sense with regard to health and safety. We also welcomed the living history efforts of women and other noncombatants.
THANK YOU TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO EVER PARTICIPATED IN OUR BELOVED COMPANY!
