5th Ohio Light Artillery will be at our 15th Annual Patriot Freedom Festival May 25 and 26. Free Admission and Free Parking.
The Fifth Ohio Light Artillery LTD is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public on Civil War history; they 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. They also take part in school and museum programs. They are a family-oriented unit that welcomes men and women in performing military as well as civilian impressions. Children under the age of sixteen cannot perform military activities but are welcome as civilians. Visit them at their campsite behind the historic Protestant Chapel and get an education on Civil War artillery. Learn more about them at
