The 198th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry began to be formed in April 1865 at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. Authorities began to form regimental companies on April 17, 1865 and stopped the process on April 27, 1865. The regiment failed to muster enough men to complete formation. Only enough men reported for duty to form eight companies, while most regiments consisted of ten companies. Military authorities dismissed the men who reported for duty on May 8, 1865.
