Tazewell County Civil War

Book Description:

The early military history of Tazewell County, IL, is recalled in excerpts from the hard-to-find 1905 book: Historical Encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Tazewell County, published by Munsell Publishing Company of Chicago. The Tazewell portions were edited by Ben C. Allensworth. The 54-page spiral bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# 8.5" x 11" paper. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover. The booklet begins with the Black Hawk Indian War of 1832, including an account of Stillman's Defeat, and then moves on to the Mexican War of 1846 and Company G of the 4th Illinois Volunteers, with names of officers. A large part of the booklet, of course, deals with the Civil War, beginning on the home front with resolutions supporting the union, bounties offered to volunteers, and a County Sanitary Fair held to raise funds to alleviate the suffering of soldiers and help their families during their absence. The county furnished 200 soldiers for the Spanish American war in 1898, membrs of Company K and Company G of the Fifth Illinois Regiment. Names of membrs of Company G are given. Following this overview, there is a lengthy list of Civil War soldiers from the county by regiment, with brief regimental histories. These include the Seventh Infantry, Companies E, K and D; the Eighth Infantry, Companies D, E, F, I, and K; the 15th Infantry, Company A; the 17th Infantry, Companies B and G; the 18th Infantry, Company K; the 26th Infantry, Company K; the 27th Infanry, company E; the 28th Infantry, Companies A, B, and K; the 31st Infantry, Company I; the 32nd Infantry, Company I; the 38th Infantry, company G; the 44th Infantry, Companies E and K; the 45th Infantry, Companies A and D; the 47th Infantry, Companies A, B, E, F, H, I, and K; the 49th Infantry, Company K; the 51st Infantry, Company D; the 58th Infantry, Companies E, F, H, and I; 61st Infantry, Companies C, G, I and K; 62nd Infantry, Company H; 67th Infantry, Company G; 68th Infantry, Company K; 73rd Infantry, Companys B and I; 85th Infantry, Companies A and F; 86th Infantry, Company G; 94th Infantry, Companies H and I; 100th Infantry, Company H; 104th Infantry, Company I; 108th Infantry, Companies A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I and K; 115th Infantry, Company H; 117th Infantry, Company A; 139th Infantry, Companies C and F; 145th Infantry, Company D; 146th Infantry, Companies I and K; 148th Infantry, Company C; 152nd Infantry, Companies A, C, D, E and G; 154th Infantry, Companies C, G and H; 155th Infantry, Companies D, F, and K; 156th Infantry; Third Cavalry, Companies B, F, G, H, I and K; Fourth Cavalry, Companies E, G and H; Fifth Cavalry, Company E; 11th Cavalry, Companies A, C, F, H, I, L and M; 12th Cavalry; 14th Cavalry, Companies A, B, C and M; Artillery; 20th United States (Colored Infantry), Company G; First Army Corps; and other miscellaneous units.
