I've learned that at the beginning of 1812 war most of the U.S army was a bunch of state militias. I think that during the civil war state militias still existed though I have no idea to what extent. My question is when was the last state militia used in combat or when they were fully dismantled?

    Some time in the future. As far as I can tell, all 50 states still maintain a militia. – Mark Oct 14 '16 at 0:40

State militias still exist in the United States. They are called National Guard units today.
