Document provides information about Private Gillen, who was nineteen years old, stating he was discharged in Virginia, and was a member of the Union Army of the Shenandoah. The 193rd Ohio Infantry was organized at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio in March, 1865, and mustered in for one year service under the command of Colonel Eugene Powell. The regiment was ordered to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, and assigned to 2nd Brigade, 1st Provisional Division, Army of the Shenandoah, March 20. Marched to Charleston March 21, and duty there until April 4. Transferred to 2nd Brigade, 2nd Provisional Division, March 27. Moved to Winchester April 4, and duty there until August 1865.
