Regimental History
OHIO
NINETY-FIRST INFANTRY
(Three Years)


Ninety-first Infantry. - Cols., John A. Turley, Benjamin F. Coates; Lieut.-Col., Lemuel C. Cadot; Majs., John R. Blessing, Samuel F. Neal.

This regiment was organized at Camp Ironton, Sept. 7, 1862, to serve for three years.

It was first sent to Guyandotte, Va. to watch the Confederate Jenkins, and then was ordered to Maysville, Ky., but before reaching the place was sent back to Virginia and started on its first raid up the Kanawha, on which a Confederate camp at Buffalo was captured with all its contents, except the occupants, who made good their escape.

The regiment spent the winter at Fayetteville and in the following May participated in the attack on and pursuit of the Confederates, marching 20 miles and driving the enemy from that part of the country.

It also spent its second winter at Fayetteville and in May, 1864, fought the battles of Cloyd's mountain and New River bridge. It then participated in Hunter's disastrous campaign against Lynchburg and bore an honorable part in the engagement at the latter place.

In the brilliant affair at Stephenson's depot, near Winchester, in July, the regiment also played a conspicuous part, capturing 2 brass field-pieces.

It was in the battle of the Opequan and there headed a charge which lifted the Confederates completely out of their position with the naked bayonet. The regiment lost more in killed and wounded in this battle than in any it was ever engaged. It participated in the remainder of the valley operations then spent the winter at Martinsburg, and was mustered out of service on June 24, 1865. Source: The Union Army, vol. 2

william lambert worthington - Corporal   
I am trying to find info. on my great grandfather's parents. I know he served in the 91st Ohio. He went in on 9/11/1862 and was mustered out at Cumberland MD on 6/24/1865. He was promoted to corporal on 5/1/1863. He served in Co. H. He was from TN. His Father was from Scotland and mother from Louisianna. He later made his way to Oregon where he became the Superintendent of schools in Astoria, married the first Mayor of Astoria's Daughter Helen, had 4 children and died while running for state superintendent of schools. Can anyone help me with what and where he served in the war and any information on any siblings, where he lived in TN what were his parents names and what they did for a living? I am totally spent on trying to find out any of this information and have spent years running into the same wall over & over again. Thank you.
