During the American Civil War, Ohio contributed many officers, politicians, and troops to the Union war effort.

The following is a partial list of generals or rear admirals either born in Ohio or living in Ohio when they joined the Army or Navy (or in a few cases, men who were buried in Ohio following the war, although they did not directly serve in Ohio units). There were 134 men given the temporary rank of brevet brigadier general, a few of whom are also included in this listing.
