15 O.V.I. - Company G


Submitted by Nancy Hoelzen and Jim H.


** see also:  Lucius O. Doolittle Civil War Company Ledger (posted 2004)

Capt. Lucius Doolittle was a store clerk for Weldon and Robinson in Mansfield when he enlisted Sept. 9, 1861 in the 15th OVI Company G in Mansfield as a Private and rose in rank from Company D/G Clerk to Company G Commander before being mustered out on December 23, 1865 in San Antonio, TX. This family handed down written in lead pencil journal documents Company G's history form the perspective of one of its members from conception to serving one of the longest tours of any Army Unit during the Civil War.  The accompanying name Index lists the soldiers of the Richland County area who were wounded, captured or died during the Companies engagements as documented in the Journal. It is a rare hand written document of the units history prepared by one who was present throughout the Company's existence. It is unknown as no date exists for the document but most likely was prepared just prior to the unit mustering out in 1865.  Capt. Doolittle is our Great Grandfather.
