A History and Biographical Cyclopaedia of Butler County Ohio was published in 1882 by the Western Biographical Publishing Company of Cincinnati. Pages 207 to 253 describe Butler County's participation in the American Civil War. What makes it remarkable is that the Cyclopaedia was written by people who had lived through the Civil War and while many of the local veterans were still living. The writers of the Cyclopeaedia recorded what the people of Butler County believed and felt about the Civil War and because they were writing about people still living, they purposely mentioned as many names as they could. This web page consolidates stories from the Cyclopaedia into fourteen common groupings. If you want to read the Cyclopaedia as it was written, go to http://rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohbutler/cyc/.
