Web Author's Notes:
The following is an article relating to Company G of the 16th Ohio 90-day regiment and published in the Holmes County Republican newspaper on April 25, 1861. This company was formed by its captain, James McNulty, who enlisted young men from Holmes County, Ohio. The transcription includes most spelling errors found in the original articles.

Additional details on the 90-day Company G can be found in a series of letters to newspaper editors by one of its members, Sgt. Manuel DeSilva.

The Holmes County Boys.

Immediately on receipt of the call of Gov. DENNISON, for volunteers, measures were set on foot to raise a company in Millersburg, and today it number 80 men, sworn in, accepted by the State authorities, and in readiness to march at a moment's notice. At an election held on Saturday, for officers, the following names persons were chosen. Captain, JAMES MCNULTY, First Lieutenant, JOHN S. IRVINE, Second Lieutenant, WM. SPANGLER. A Selection, we are satisfied, that will do no discredit to those making it. The company is made up almost entirely of young men, a majority of them citizens of Millersburg, and in appearance, in drill, in good behaviour, and in all the essentials that go to make a soldier who volunteers and fights from love of country, when that country has need of his services, the Millersburg Company will compare favorably with any that marches into the encampment or upon the battle-field. May He, who doeth all things well, protect them in all the trials that seem to lie before them, bring about a speedy and honorable peace in our land, and restore these men to their families and friends.
