The Fifth Ohio Light Artillery LTD is a non profit organization dedicated to further the education of the public. We re-enact an actual artillery unit raised from Southern Ohio during the Civil War.
Its current members are based out of the Greater Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus areas in Ohio and re-enact in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. We also take part in school and museum programs.
We are a family oriented unit that welcomes men and women in performing military as well as civilian impressions.
Children under the age of sixteen can not perform military activities but are welcome as civilians.
