Is there a unit or a individual that you are seeking for the Civil War Camp Cahaba?
Yes, I am looking for information about the 102nd Ohio Infantry Regiment, or, more specifically, a Private named Ellsey A. Sloane, who was in the 102nd.
Thank you for your help with this matter!

Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Record Books of Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Offices of the Confederate Government, 1874 - 1899 in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that includes the digitized A&IGO (Adjutant & Inspector General's Office) - Telegrams Received, 1864-1865. These are available using the Catalog. We also located 20 series in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that pertain to Union telegrams during the 1860s. Additionally, we located the Registers of Exchanged Federal Prisoners of War, 1861 - 1865 in the Records of the Commissary General of Prisoners (Record Group 249) that includes the surname of prisoner, date of exchange, and the place of exchange. For information about the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at Archives1reference@nara.gov.
Next, we locate the Regimental and Company Books of Civil War Volunteer Union Organizations, 1861 - 1867 in Record Group 94 that includes the Regimental and Company Books of the 102nd Ohio Infantry Regiment. Please contact RDT1 for more information.
