Hellcat, yes that's what the records say, but in doing some research I found that the process of relisting was as I described. Upon reenlisting the soldier mustered out of the 5th and into the Veterans Volunteers. Nothing changed so it looks just like the mechanics of the transaction. Please see the attached. If you have a better interpretation of the information, please let me know.

This is pretty irrelevant to understanding the soldier in question. The 175th Ohio was a one year regiment that mustered in October 1864 and mustered out June 1865. The 47th mustered in September 1861, so it may have become become the 47th OIVI in September 1864 after three year enlistments were up. The unit mustered out August 1865. I don’t see how or why Moon would have been on both units. Unless he was a “blue moon”. Sorry for the pun.
