Without going into the details of different companies and regiments, it is well to inform the reader as to the number of men who served from Warren county in that awful struggle for the preservation of the Union. According to the adjutant-general's report in September, 1862, there had been up to that date 1,180 volunteers, and using this as a basis, the following credits may be considered nearly correct: The quota of June, 1863, was 40 men; that of October, 1863, was 129 men; that of February, 1864, was 248 men; that of March, 1864, was 133. Adding these figures to the 1,180 up to September, 1862, and the result is a grand total of 2,096 men. As is shown by other later reports, it is found that the county had a surplus of men over and above her quota amounting to seventeen men. Now, adding these to the last footing and the number is 2,113 men. But, as was the case elsewhere, men's names appear in the various commands in which they served, the three months and all later re-enlistments, so that deducting such names and only enumerating them once, the actual number is believed to be 2,020 individual men who made up the soldiery from Warren county from 1861 to 1865. A proud record for patriotism and military strength.
