The 34th Ohio was raised at Camp Lucas near Cincinnati on 1 September 1861 with most recruits coming from southwest Ohio. After training at Camp Dennison (near Cincinnati) and Camp Enyart (western Virginia), they  mostly saw action in what is now Weset Virignia. They won a victory at the Battle of Kanawha Gap. After re-enlistment on 18 July 1863, they were a part of Crook's Expedition against the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad. They also saw action at the Battle of Cloyd's Mountain (9 May 1864), the Battle of Cove Mountain (10 May 1864), and several other skirmishes. After another re-enlistment on 19 January 1864, they participated in several battles of the 1864 Valley Campaign including the Battle of Winchester (Battle of Opequon, 19 September 1864). It was amalgamated on 22 February 1865 with the 36th Ohio.
