Welcome to the 5th C.V.I.'s Home page. 

    The original Fifth CVI   was recruited during 1861 from through out  the state.  The Fifth CVI fought the first two years of the war as unit of  the Army of the Potomac.  After Gettysburg the Fifth CVI was reassigned to the Army of the Cumberland and later served under Sherman on his infamous "March to the Sea".  The Fifth was mustered out of service in July of 1865.
