The Civil War usually brings to mind far off places like Gettysburg or Richmond, but according to Mark Holbrook of the Ohio Historical Society, Ohio’s contribution to the Civil War was more than significant. From the three Ohio generals who were credited with winning the war to the Underground Railroad and the 300,000 Ohioans who served, Ohio played a major role in the war. Holbrook said that Wyandot County contributed as well with several companies of troops and two soldiers who won the Congressional Medal of Honor.
