Participants in the American Civil War from the tri-county area of Randolph, Monroe and Perry Counties in southwest Illinois are recalled in this newly printed 8 1/2" x 11" spiral-bound 72 page illustrated booklet. The booklet, an excerpt from the hard-to-find 1884 book: Combined History of Randolph, Monroe and Perry Counties, Illinois, originally published by J.L. McDough and Co. of Philadelphia, is printed on 60# paper. A vinyl sheet protects the front cover. "The sentiment of patriotism, so generally felt in all parts of the land, was strong in the people of Randolph, Monroe and Perry, and nobly did they respond to their country's call, sending many of their brave sons in defence of the Union." The booklet gives the names of regiments, usually a brief account of their movements, and a Muster roll of the men from each county by company, including rank and when they were mustered out, or if they were killed, wounded, etc. The infantry regiments with over 10 names include the 7th, 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 22nd, 29th (Colored), 30th, 31st, 43rd, 49th, 60th, 63rd, 71st, 80th, 81st, 89th, 110th (Consolidated), 117th, 130th, 136th, 142nd, 149th, 154th, 155th Infantry Illinois Volunteers.
