ABSTRACT 

Many Civil War authors have written works which have 
discussed the contribution individual states made to the war 
effort. These authors, however, have failed to consider the 
contributions made by individual counties. For example, in 
his work, Illinois in the Civil War . Victor Hicken has 
provided readers with a comprehensive history of Illinois' 
role in the Civil War. However, Professor Hicken- s work has 
failed to consider the contribution Illinois' counties made 
to the war effort .Therefore , it is the purpose of this 
thesis to examine one Illinois county's contribution to that 
war . 

When the Civil War began in 1861, Edgar County was only 
thirty-eight years old, yet, over 16,000 inhabitants were 
living within the county at the time. Most of these 
individuals were born within the county, although many were 
from various midwestern states. Through the use of census 
records taken in 1860, a good composite of a typical soldier 
from the county has been made. Everything from economics to 
religion has been examined in relation to the average 
soldier from Edgar County. 

The major emphasis of this study, however, is to 

analyze the contribution that Edgar County made to the war 

effort. In all, 2,312 men from the county are credited with 

serving in the war. This represents about three-fourths of 

those who were considered eligible. Of the eighty different 

- i i- 



units in which Edgar Countians enlisted, several contained 
large numbers of soldiers from the county. These units have 
been examined individually, with emphasis being placed on 
the county's contribution to each. In addition, a separate 
chapter discusses some of the battles in which Edgar 
Countians both participated in and were killed at, as well 
as examines the numbers of soldiers from the county who lost 
their lives during the war due to other causes. 

In Edgar County, locally strong Copperhead activity 
kept local officials busy throughout the latter part of the 
war. To fully understand this activity, a brief examination 
of the county s early immigration patterns and political 
backgrounds has been included. Early immigrants to the 
county were primarily from the South. Later, many northern 
immigrants settled in the county. As a result, an animosity 
grew between these two groups as the war progressed 
resulting in violence. 

A concluding chapter analyzes and compares Edgar's 

contribution with that of surrounding east-central Illinois 

counties and the state in general. The conclusion reached by 

this author is that Edgar County s contribution to the Civil 

War was significant, in both manpower and overall 

contribution. The final portion of this thesis consists of a 

carefully prepared list of those known to have served in the 

war from the county. By including this the author hopes to 

fill a void which has existed for some time.

CHAPTER I 
EDGAR COUNTY IN 1861 

Edgar County Is located In east-central Illinois about 
halfway between the northern and southern borders of the 
state and forms part of the state' s eastern border with 
Indiana. The county's size is much the same today as it was 
in 1861, being nearly twenty-seven miles long by twenty-four 
miles wide, for a total area of 628 square miles. As in 
1861, the county is bounded by Vermilion County on the 
north, Champaign County on the northwest, Douglas and Coles 
Counties on the west, Clark County on the south, and the 
State of Indiana on the east . ^ (See Map 1) 

Created on January 3, 1823, the county was named in 
honor of John Edgar, an early Illinois pioneer, merchant, 
and land speculator.^ When Illinois became a state in 1818, 
the area which eventually became Edgar County was then a 
part of Crawford County. In 1819, this territory was part of 
Clark County, before becoming a separate county in 1823.^ 

For the most part, Edgar County's physical description 
Is much the same today as it was in 1823. The northern and 
central portions of the county contain predominantly flat 
prairie land composed of rich fertile soil. The southern 
part of the county consists of uneven terrain covered with 
dense upland timber. This difference in terrain is due to 
the Shelbyvllle Moraine which was left after the glacier 

period.'^ Cutting across the county in an east-west

direction, this moraine divides the county into two very 
distinctly different terrains. 

Originally, the county contained five townships or 
precincts, as they were called in the mid-1800s. The names 
of these original precincts were Wayne, Fairfield, Pike, 
Carroll, and Ripley. Of these, only Ripley was removed from 
the present boundaries of the county. This precinct 
encompassed the unorganized territory which stretched as far 
north as Chicago.^ 

Almost as soon as the county was created, local 
officials established the seat of government. Although a 
location and name (Cambridge City) had been chosen in what 
is now Hunter Township, wise county officials reconsidered 
their decision and made Paris the county seat.° Located in 
the south-central portion of the county, Paris soon proved 
to be an excellent choice of the county officials. 

In 1856, the township form of county government was 
formally adopted by voters in Edgar County by a 1,349 to 971 
vote.^ At this time, the county was divided into thirteen 
voting districts or precincts. When the township form of 
government went into effect, these townships were renamed as 
follows; Prairie, Ross, Young America, Embarrass, Kansas, 
Grandview, Symmes, Buck, Edgar, Brouillet Creek, Stratton, 
Paris, and Elbridge.^ In terms of area, most townships were 
relativley the same size, the exception being Young America 
which was the largest. The boundaries of these

townships are shown in Map 2. In March 1861, a new township 
was created from the northern part of Stratton and named 
Hunter. Thus, Edgar County contained fourteen townships 
when the Civil War began. 

The pattern of settlement in Edgar County generally was 
from southeast to northwest across the county. However, the 
first area to be settled was in the northeast part of the 
county along the timber bordering the "North Arm" of the 
Grand Prairie. ^"^ Here, in present day Brouillet Creek and 
Hunter Townships, the first people settled. Almost at the 
same time, early pioneers settled in the southern sections 
of the county. Finding plenty of good timber for building 
homes, these settlers soon established their farms along Big 
and Clear Creeks in Symmes and Grandvlew Townships. After 
Paris became the county seat, the central portion of the 
county was settled. The last areas of the county to be 
settled were the northern and western portions, primarily 
Embarrass and Young America Townships. 

By 1861, Edgar County contained several communities, 

the largest of which was Paris, the county seat. Easily 

accessible for persons living in remote parts of the county 

and well connected by transportation routes, Paris soon 

became an important trading center for east-central 

Illinois. Located in the northeast portion of the county 

were the settlements of Logan and Bal dwi nsv i 1 1 e , in 

Brouillet Creek and Hunter Townships respectively. On the

road from Paris to Terre Haute, Indiana was the community of 
Elbridge. This village served as a post office and trading 
center for persons living In southeastern Edgar County. 
North of Elbridge in Stratton Township were the communities 
of Vermilion and Kentucky. Established only a few years 
before the railroad (Terre Haute & Alton) came through, 
Vermilion by 1861, was already an important shipping center. 
Also laid out next to the railroad, Kentucky was Just 
beginning to grow in 1861. 

North of Paris In Edgar Township was the community of 
Bloomfield. Located on the Paris to Danville Road, 
Bloomfield was the largest community in this part of the 
county. In southwestern Edgar County were located four 
communities in 1861. The largest and oldest of these was the 
settlement of Grandview. However, with the coming of the 
railroad in the mld-1850s, Grandview was by-passed thus, by 
1861, it had begun to decline as a population center. North 
of Grandview were the communities of Conlogue and Dudley. 
Both had grown almost overnight with the building of the 
railroad. Farther west of Grandview was the community of 
Kansas. The building of the railroad through Kansas had 
insured its growth as an important trading center in western 
Edgar County. Map 3 shows the location of the various 
communities referred to above. 

Edgar County's population in 1860 was 16,925 persons. 

This included thirty-seven free Negroes who were living in

the county at the time.^^ Compared with the other 
east-central Illinois counties, Edgar was second in total 
population. Only Vermilion County contained more people in 
1860, with 19,800. Both Clark and Coles Counties were 
relatively even In population with 14,987 and 14,203 
respectively. Meanwhile, newly created Douglas County 
contained only 7,140 persons in 1860. ^^ 

The ratio of males to females was almost even in Edgar 
County, with 8,765 males and 8,160 females being reported. ^"^ 
By age, the largest number of people living in Edgar County 
in 1860 were those between twenty and thirty, with some 
3,083 being listed in the census. In fact, most citizens of 
Edgar County were young. An examination of the census 
reveals 15,607 persons between the ages of one and fifty 
living in the county in 1860. This is approximately 92 
percent of the total population. In contrast, only 1,318 
persons over the age of fifty were living in the county in 
1860.1^ 

Of Interest to this paper is the number of white males 
between the ages of fifteen and fifty. This number is 
significant because it indicates the number of men who would 
have been of age to serve in the military. In order to 
enlist with any military unit serving in the Civil War a 
recruit must have been at least eighteen but not over 
forty-five years of age. In 1860, 4,319 white males between 

the ages of fifteen and fifty were living In the county. ^^

Of this number, 980 were between fifteen and twenty, 1,651 
were between twenty and thirty, 1,044 were between thirty 
and forty, and 644 were between forty and fifty. From these 
totals it is clear that the majority of white males in Edgar 
County were those between the ages of twenty and forty. 
Although it Is hard to determine the exact number of men, 
living in Edgar County, who were between eighteen and 
forty-five. It is safe to say that at least 3,500 males were 
of ml 1 i tary age . 

By townships, the population of Edgar County varied 
considerably. Shown in Table 1 are the population figures 
for each township of the county. From examining Table 1 it 
is clear that the townships of Stratton, Paris, Elbrldge, 
Edgar, Kansas, Grandvlew, and Symmes contained the largest 
portion of the county's population. In fact, almost 72 
percent of the county's total population resided in these 
townships. However, the remaining townships were not as 
sparsely populated as these figures might Indicate. In 1860, 
Edgar County's population density was only twenty-seven 
persons per square mile.^^ Compared with other surrounding 

counties, only Clark County contained a greater density with 

1 7 
almost thirty persons per square mile being reported.^' 

According to the 1860 census, 16,259 Edgar Count ians 

listed their birthplace as being the United States. ^^ This 

is almost 96 percent of the county's total population.

Even though most Edgar Count ians in 1860 were born in 
the United States, 666 listed their birthplace as being a 
foreign country. ^"^ This number represents about 4 percent of 

the county's total population. The small number of

foreign born residents living in Edgar County in 1860 Is not 
surprising since almost all east-central Illinois counties 
reported fewer than 10 percent foreign born in 1860. ^^ Of 
those born overseas, 383 were born in Ireland, 139 in 
Germany, and sixty-six in England. Other countries listed In 
the census as birthplaces included France, Scotland, Poland, 
Sweden, and Canada. ^^ 

Edgar Countians were predominantly Protestant in 1860. 
Thirty-eight churches were located in the county at this 
time, with the number of members totaling 13,350. Of this 
number, 1,200 belonged to the three Presbyterian Churches 
while another 900 were members of the two Roman Catholic 
Churches. The eight Christian Churches contained 2,400 
members, while 2,100 persons belonged to the seven Baptist 
Churches. The remaining 6,750 persons were all members of 
the eighteen Methodist Churches. ^•^ 

In 1860, Edgar Countians were primarily employed in 
agricultural related occupations. Table 3 lists the number 
of agricultural occupations, the number of total 
occupations, as well as the percentage for each township in 
the county. 

According to this table, some 2,855 Edgar Countians 
listed their occupation as being farm related in 1860.^'^ 
This was 78 percent of the 3,646 who reported their 

occupations. Thus, almost eight out of every ten Edgar

Other occupations listed in the 1860 census included 
carpenters, laborers, teamsters, lawyers, teachers, 
blacksmiths, coopers, hotel keepers, as well as many other 
typical mid-nineteenth century occupations.^^ In the 
townships containing larger communities, a wider variety of 

occupations were listed in the census. For example, in

Paris, occupations listed included booksellers, bankers, 
jewelers, lawyers, merchants, doctors, tailors, artists, and 
clerks.^" In some townships, such as Buck, almost every 
occupation listed in the census was related to 
agr i cul ture . ' 

As mentioned above, Edgar County was strictly an 
agricultural county in 1860. Early pioneers had transformed 
the county's vast prairie lands into large productive farms 
in just a matter of years. By the year 1860, over 200,000 
acres of land was under cultivation in Edgar County. 
However, the amount of unimproved land still totaled 96,199 
acres. The remaining acres were taken up with forests. In 
1860, the cash value of farmland in Edgar County was worth 
well over $5 million, or approximately $25 an acre.^° 

The number of individual farms in Edgar County at this 
time totaled 1,408. Of this number, 1,340 were large farms 
of between twenty and five-hundred acres in size. Only 
forty-seven farms of over five-hundred acres existed, with 
ten of these containing over one-thousand acres. Twenty-one 

farms with less than twenty acres were listed In the 

29 

census . ^ 

The types of crops grown on these farms were much the 
same as those being grown elsewhere in the country at the 
time. Wheat was the principle crop grown in Edgar County 
with over 130,000 bushels being harvested in 1860. Other 

crops included corn, oats, rye, tobacco, barley, sweet 

-14-

potatoes, and potatoes. In addition, such items as cheese, 
butter, wine, maple sugar, sorghum, and flax were also 
produced on farms in Edgar County. '^^ Many Edgar County 
farmers found that raising livestock could be very 
profitable as well. Over 41,000 head of swine, 13,000 head 
of cattle, and 19,000 head of sheep were being raised in the 
county in 1860, with a reported value of over $1 million 
dol lars.^^ 

As early as 1820, the first grist mill opened in 
northeastern Edgar County on Broui i 1 ett ''s Creek. Likewise, a 
mill was opened a few years later in Elbridge Township along 
Sugar Creek. "^^ In 1860, a total of fifty-six manufacturing 
establishments were in operation in Edgar County. Of this 
number, approximat 1 ey twenty types of Industry were 
represented. Most were typical mid-nineteenth century 
businesses such as agricultural equipment manufacturers, 
carriage builders, flour mills, distilleries, saw mills, and 
printing shops. "^"^ The annual value of the goods produced by 
these manufacturers was well over $300,000, while the amount 
of capital invested totaled over $124,000.'^'^ An examination 
of the census shows that Edgar Count ians owned over $7 
million worth of property in 1860, while the value of their 

OCT 

personal property was over $3 mi 1 1 i on . "^-^ 

As agriculture and industry expanded there was a need 
for better transportation in the county. By 1861, Edgar 

County was well-connected with transportation routes. The

principle roads in the county connected Paris with Danville 
Marshall, Charleston, Springfield, and Terre Haute, Indiana. 
In addition, many other roads connected various sections of 
the county with Paris. ° Besides roads, one rail line 
passed through the county in 1861. Chartered in 1851 as the 
Terre Haute and Alton Railroad, this line was finished 
through Edgar County in 1853 and began operation the next 
year."^' Map 3 shows the location of this line along with the 
principle roads which existed in 1861. 

From examining the various demographic statistics 
discussed in this chapter, one gets a feeling for the 
typical Edgar County soldier's background. More than likely, 
he was born in the United States, probably within the 
county. A few, however, were born overseas with the largest 
group being from Ireland. Religiously, the typical Edgar 
Countian was Protestant by faith, although a few Catholics 
enlisted as well. According to the population figures, the 
largest number of volunteers available were living in the 
townships of Grandview, Paris, Edgar, Elbridge, Stratton, 
and Kansas. 

By cross-checking the names of those known to have 
served in the war with their ages in the 1860 Census, one 
can determine the average age of the typical Edgar County 
volunteer as being twenty-five years old in 1863. "^^ This is 
consistent with that of most northern soldiers according to 

Bell Wiley. In his The Life of Bi 1 Iv Yank . Wiley quotes

;th". 



the research of Benjamin A. Gould as showing that the age of 
the average Union soldier was 25.76 in July 1863, the 
mid-point of the war.-^^ 

Wiley also wrote that the educational backgrounds for 
the average Union soldier "ranged from no-schooling at all 
to the highest levels of specialized training. "^^ However, 
it is hard to determine what kind of educational training 
the average soldier from Edgar County had. In 1824, the 
first school opened in Paris, and two years later the first 
school district was organized in the county. However, it was 
not until the passage of the Free School Law in 1855, that 
schools became widespread across the county. '^^ The first 
school commissioner in the county was Sheridan P. Read, who 
was later killed at the Battle of Stones River. In his 
report to state officials in 1858, Read wrote that, "under 
the present law there has been a great improvement In the 
schools of this county ... I do not fear that Edgar County 
will Take a high stand in educational matters hereaf ter . " ^^ 
Judging from this statement then, the average Edgar County 
soldier probably had at least some form of educational 
training. 

By occupation, the average soldier was more than likely 
a farmer or farm laborer. Again, this Is consistent with 
most northern soldiers. According to Wiley, "the most 
numerous groups of volunteers were farmers, who comprised 

nearly half the total. "^^^ However, those volunteers who

lived in Paris or one of the other communities of the county 
were employed in a variety of occupations ranging from 
doctors and lawyers to merchants. 

In summary, the average volunteer from Edgar County was 
actually no different than other soldiers from small 
midwestern agricultural counties. Therefore, the military 
contributions that these soldiers made to the war should 
have been consistent with that made by soldiers from other 
midwestern counties. However, this author has found that 
Edgar County made a significant contribution to the Civil 
War.

CHAPTER II 
EDGAR COUNTY'S MILITARY CONTRIBUTION 

Edgar County is credited with contributing 2,312 men to 
the Union forces during the Civil War. According to official 
records, this was Just sixty shy of the established quota 
(of 2,372) for the county. By comparing the number of men 
serving with those considered eligible, a percentage is 
obtained which indicates how much contribution the county 
gave to the war effort. In 1865, the Illinois Adjutant 
General's Office reported that 3,065 Edgar Countians were 
considered eligible for military duty.^ Dividing 2,312 by 
3,065 yields 75 percent, which Indicates that three out of 
every four men who were eligible to serve from Edgar County 
did so. 

Comparing the total number of enrollments with the 
number of males available is another way of determining the 
county's contribution. Through the Military Census of 
October 1862, the township assessors, in Edgar County, 
reported 1,395 men who were serving in the war out of 4,118 
who were considered eligible.'^ This is approximately 34 
percent, or one out of every three males considered 
eligible. However, one must remember that these figures are 
for 1862, and that there were still many more volunteers who 
enlisted after this date. Table 4 lists the number of men 
serving, eligible to serve and the percentage for each 

township of the county. From this table the reader can see

Hunter Township had been created In March, 1861. 



From examining Table 4, it is obvious which townships 
actually contributed more to the war effort than the county 
average (34%) in 1862. One such township was Stratton, which 
had the highest percentage of men serving. In 1862, with 
fifty-four percent. However, in the 1879 History of Edgar 
County . it is stated that, "Kansas claims to be the banner 

township in the part taken in the suppression of the 

-20- 



• ■; 'I : : ' 



ii-^c'L 



.;A; 



■;:t;. 






rebellion .... No doubt, in proportion to the number of 
inhabitants, this township did turn out more soldiers than 
any other. "'^ Kansas Township had, in fact, contributed 43 
percent of its available manpower as of October 1862. 

Another indication of the county's contribution can be 
shown by comparing the number of credited enrollments as of 
January 1865, with the number of males of military age 
living in the county in 1860. In January 1865, 3,343 males 
were credited with enrolling from the county. In 1860, 4,319 
males were living within Edgar County. Dividing 3,343 by 
4,319 yields 77 percent, which is fairly close to the 
percentage obtained when dividing the number of men credited 
with serving (2,312) by those eligible (3,065).^ Thus, it 
could be said that Edgar County contributed approx imat 1 ey 
three-quarters of its eligible manpower to the war effort. 

The structure of the basic Civil War unit was 
relatively simple. Each infantry regiment consisted of ten 
companies of approximately one-hundred men each. Thus, the 
effective strength, including staff officers, was Just over 
one-thousand men. However, not all units were able to 
achieve this total, but some even surpassed it. The 
individual companies were assigned the letters A to K, with 
J being disregarded because of its similarity with the 
letter I, thus, preventing any confusion. In cavalry units 
there were usually twelve companies of one-hundred men each, 

lettered from A to M, with J again being passed-over .^

Although the majority of soldiers from Edgar County 
were privates, a number served as officers of their 
respective Civil War units. Of these, the largest number 
were corporals. In fact, over one-hundred Edgar Count ians 
served as corporals during the war. Over sixty others were 
enlisted as sergeants and approximately twenty-five served 
as captains. Other Edgar Countians served as lieutenants, 
musicians, wagoneers, surgeons, buglers, farriers, hospital 
stewards, chaplains, and adjutants to name just a few ranks. 
Only three Edgar Countians achieved the rank of colonel 
during the Civil War. Colonels Sheridan P. Read <79th 
Illinois), John W.S. Alexander (21st Illinois), and Andrew 
K. Campbell (66th Illinois) were all promoted in the field. 
Of these three, only Campbell lived to see the end of the 
war. However, he died in 1867 from wounds received at 
At 1 anta . 

Of the 2,312 men from Edgar County credited with 
serving in the Civil War, almost three-quarters enlisted 
with units from Illinois. In fact, over eighty different 
units from Illinois contained Edgar County men.' Of these, 
several contained large numbers of Edgar Countians. Other 
units, however, contained only a few men from the county. 
Table 5 lists those regiments which contained large numbers 
of Edgar County men, along with the principle company or 
companies and the known number of Edgar Countians in each.

Edgar Countians enrolled In these units, brief regimental 
histories have been included in this paper. Emphasis, 
however, has been placed upon the role Edgar Countians 
played towards the outfit's overall contribution to the war. 
In selecting which of these units had the best or worst 
contribution to the war, one is faced with making judgements 
based solely on a personal basis. Thus, it is almost 
impossible objectively to list the best or worst Edgar 
County regiment. However, with these regimental histories 
one can get a feeling for how well some of these regiments, 
and consequently the Edgar Countians in them, performed.

The Twelfth Illinois Infantry Regiment was originally 
mustered into service for three months in April 1861. 
However, when the three-month period of service expired on 
August 1, 1861, the unit was re-mustered as a three-year 
unit. The three-year regiment, (also known as the First 
Scotch Regiment), ° was comprised of companies recruited from 
throughout the state. Many volunteers from Edgar County 
enrolled in Company E, which was first commanded by Captain 
Vincent Ridgely of Springfield. Upon his resignation in 
early October 1861, Captain Henry Van Sellar of Paris 
assumed command of the company." Van Sellar had been a 
prominent lawyer in Paris before enlisting in the service. ^^ 

Enrolled in Company E were well over one-hundred 
volunteers from Edgar County. Of this number, the largest 
number resided in the townships of Kansas, Grandview, and 
Paris. Almost all of the company's officers were Edgar 
Countians, with most being promoted later in the war. Eight 
members of Company E killed during the war were from Edgar 
County and only one of two deserters were from the county. 
Very few men in the company died or were discharged while in 
the service and a large number of Edgar Countians 
re-enlisted and eventually mustered out with the regiment. ^^ 

One of the first battles in which this regiment 
participated in was at Fort Donelson. Here, Private Tobias 
Bower (Company E) , became one of the first Edgar County 

soldiers of the regiment killed in action. ^^ At the Battle

of Shiloh the unit suffered over thirty casualties, 
including Private James F. Stout (Company E) of Paris. ^"^ In 
late April 1862, the regiment was moved to Corinth, 
Mississippi where it was actively involved during the siege 
of Corinth. The unit then participated in the Battle of 
Corinth, where it suffered twenty-seven casualties, 
including three more Edgar Countians of Company E (Privates 
John S. Evans, Isaac J. McCormick, and Albert G. Roberts). ^^ 

On January 16, 1864, at Pu 1 ask i , Tennessee the regiment 
re-enlisted as a veteran unit and two days later some 
three-hundred men started for Illinois on veteran furlough. 
After re-grouping at Camp Fry (Chicago), Illinois, the 
veterans proceeded back to Pulaski in mid-March. During the 
Atlanta Campaign, the unit particiapted In engagements at 
Lay's Ferry, Rome Crossroads, Dallas, Bald Knob, Decatur, 
and Ezra Church in Georgia. Killed on this campaign were two 
more Edgar Countians of Company E; Private Henry B. Hall at 
Alatoona Pass and Private John W. Athon at Atlanta. ^^ 

In November 1864, the regiment started out with General 

William Sherman on his famous "march to the sea." On May 

24th the 12th Illinois participated in the Grand Review held 

in Washington, D.C., then left for Louisville, Kentucky 

arriving in early June. Here, the unit was mustered out of 

service on July 10, 1865. The men received their final pay 

and were discharged at Camp Butler, Illinois eight days

The Twenty-First Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
originally mustered into service for thirty days by Captain 
Ulysses S. Grant on May 15, 1861. All of the companies were 
recruited in counties which comprised the Seventh 
Congressional District. ^^ Edgar Countlans primarily enrolled 
in Company F which was commanded by Captain Enoch Woody of 
Paris. In late June 1861, the regiment was mustered into 
United States service for three years. U.S. Grant was by 
then a colonel in the regiment and remained in command of 
the unit until he was appointed, by President Lincoln, to 
the rank of brigadier general. Upon Grant's leaving the 
regiment, John W.S. Alexander of Paris was promoted 
colonel . ^' 

The over eighty Edgar Countians enrolled in Company F 
were almost all from Paris and Stratton Townships. The 
officers of the company were also from the county. Twelve of 
those killed in the company were from Edgar County, with 
seven meeting their deaths at the Battle of Stones River. 
However, many more men died of wounds or disease than were 
killed on the battlefield. Two of the company's three 
deserters were from the county.^® 

One of the unit's first encounters with the enemy 
occurred at luka, Mississippi in August 1862. Killed here 
was Private John Buntain (Company F) of Paris. ^'^ On October 
8, 1862, the regiment was engaged at the Battle of 

Perryville, Kentucky. Company F, now being commanded by

Captain David S. Blackburn of Paris, was one of the first 
units to enter the captured city.^^ At the Battle of Stones 
River (December 31, 1862 - January 2, 1863), the regiment 
was severely engaged, suffering over three-hundred 
casual t ies.^^ Among those killed were seven Edgar Countlans 
all of Company F.^^ In March 1863, the unit was involved in 
a skirmish at Gay's Gap, Tennessee losing Private Elijah 
Milam jr. of Edgar County, who was killed. "^ 

At the Battle of Chickamauga (September 19 and 20, 

1863) the regiment was again severely tested and suffered 
238 casulties as a result.^^ Among those killed were four 
Edgar County members of the regiment including Colonel 
Alexander. ^^ In early 1864, the regiment re-enlisted and 
after spending a month on furlough, the veterans rejoined 
the unit at Kenesaw Mountain, Georgia. In late July 1864, 
the unit was engaged on the outer lines of Atlanta, where it 
participated in the Battle of Jonesboro on September 1, 
1864. 

During the Battle of Frankl i n .Tennessee (November 30, 

1864) the regiment was briefly engaged before being 
withdrawn to Nashville. In June 1865, the regiment was 
assigned to the First Division of the Fourth Army Corps and 
sent to Texas. The regiment was then mustered out of service 
on December 16, 1865. Approximately a month later the unit 
arrived back at Camp Butler, Illinois where the men received 

their final pay and were discharged.

The Twenty-Fifth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
mustered into service on August 4, 1861, at St. Louis, 
Missouri. The regiment was comprised primarily of volunteers 
from counties in east-central Illinois.^" Both Companies A 
and D contained many volunteers from the northern part of 
Edgar County, with Company D being commanded by Captain 
William Osborn of Bl oomf i e 1 d. ^ ' 

Of the fifty-two Edgar County volunteers who enlisted 
in the 25th Illinois, most were from the Bloomfield and 
Logan areas of the county. Although the regiment 
participated in many battles, only one Edgar County soldier 
of the unit was killed in action during the war. However, 
several members of this unit died while serving in the 
war . 28 

On March 7th and 8th, 1862, the regiment was engaged at 
the Battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas, where it suffered 
twenty-four casual t i es.^^ In late November Samuel Mitchell 
of Edgar County assumed command of Company A after the 
company's original captain, Charles Clark, was killed in 
action. "^^ Captain William Osborn of Company D resigned in 
late December and was replaced by Allen Varner also of Edgar 
County .-^^ 

The regiment performed well at the Battle of Stones 

River (December 31, 1862 - January 2, 1863) where it was 

under enemy fire nearly the entire three days of fighting. 

However, the unit suffered relatively few casualties as only 

-28- 



CI :. -j:

ninety-six were reported. ^^ On September 19, 1863, the unit 
became engaged at the Battle of Chickamaugua, losing over 
two-hundred casualties including Private George W. Staats 
(Company A) of Bl oomf iel d. "^"^ When the Atlanta Campaign 
began, the 25th Illinois was there, however, it did not see 
any major action. On August 1, 1864, while camped within 
sight of Atlanta, the three-year period of service expired 
and the unit was ordered to return to Camp Butler, Illinois 
for mustering out, which occurred on September 5, 1864. As a 
result, the unit's brief career was over. A few Edgar 
Countians of the 25th eventually re-enlisted with other 
units, but most simply "gave up" soldiering. 

On August 19, 1861, the Twenty-Ninth Illinois Infantry 
Regiment was mustered into service at Camp Butler, Illinois. 
This regiment was mainly comprised of companies recruited 
from the southern part of the state. "^'^ Company H, however, 
was made up of volunteers from Edgar County and was 
commanded by Captain Jason B. Sprague of Brouillet Creek 
Township. 

Like the 25th Illinois, most of those Edgar Countians 
in the 29th were from the Logan and Bloomfleld areas. Many 
officers of the company were from the county as well, 
including three lieutenants. A total of nine Edgar Countians 
in the company were killed during the war, in addition to 
several who died. Many of those from the county re-enlisted 

and mustered out with the regiment, and surprisingly no 

-29- 



r -(f- 



deserters in the company were reported during the war. ^ 

At the Battle of Fort Donelson, Tennessee, the regiment 
suffered over one-hundred casualties, including thirty who 
were killed in action. ^^ Killed here were four members of 
Company H, all from the Bloomfield area of Edgar County.'^' 
In March 1862, the regiment departed for Pittsburg Landing, 
Tennessee where it participated in the Battle of Sh i 1 oh 
(April 6th and 7th). Here the regiment again suffered over 
one-hundred casualties. Among the unit's casualties were 
four Edgar Countians who were killed, including Captain 
Jason B. Sprague (Company H).'^^ Captain Robert Collins of 
Bloomfield then assumed command of the company. 

On October 19, 1863 the 131st Illinois was consolidated 
with the 29th, and in January 1864, the combined regiment 
re-enlisted as a veteran organization. A year later the 
outfit embarked for New Orleans, before being sent to 
Mobile, Alabama. Here the unit took an active part in the 
sieges of Spanish Fort and Fort Blakely, Alabama. In April 
the regiment was sent to Texas where it arrived in July. 
Remaining here until November, the unit was then mustered 
out of service. Returning to Camp Butler, the men received 
their final pay and were discharged on November 28, 1865. 

The Thirty-Fourth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
organized and mustered into service by Colonel Edward N. 
Kirk on September 7, 1861. Most of the unit was recruited 

from the Rock River Valley of northern Illinois, thus the 

-30-

ri ; " ? .: 



nickname of the "Rock River Regiment" was given to the 
unit.^^ Company K, however, was recruited mainly in the 
southwestern part of Edgar County with Captain Orson Q. 
Herrick of Kansas commanding. 

Company K was almost entirely comprised of volunteers 
from Kansas and Grandview Townships. A few of the company's 
officers were, in fact, Edgar Countians as well. Later in 
the war, Captain Herrick was promoted to the rank of 
regimental surgeon.'^'-' A total of three Edgar Countians in 
the company were killed during the war, with only one 
deserter being reported. When the regiment re-enlisted, many 
new draftees and recruits from Edgar County Joined the 
regiment. Most of these new recruits were assigned to other 
companies of the unlt.'^^ 

At the Battle of Sh 1 1 oh in early April 1862, the unit 
was heavily engaged, suffering over one-hundred casualties. 
Including two Edgar Countians of Company K who were 
killed.'^^ During the first day of battle at Stones River, 
the 34th Illinois was positioned on the right of the Union 
lines where it was brigaded together with its sister unit, 
the 79th Illinois.'*-^ Totally routed by the rebels, the 34th 
fled in retreat, losing over sixty men who were captured by 
the enemy. '^^ Surprisingly, Company K emerged with relatively 
minor casualties. 

In June 1863, the regiment engaged the enemy at Liberty

Gap, Tennessee losing some twenty-nine casualties in the 
process. '^^ In late December 1863, the regiment re-enlisted 
as a veteran unit and the veterans were given a furlough 
home. On June 27, 1864, the regiment led the Union assault 
upon Kenesaw Mountain, then participated in the siege of 
Atlanta. While fighting in the Battle of Jonesboro, Georgia 
Private William H. Steepleton of Kansas was killed in 
action."*^ 

The regiment also participated in General William T. 
Sherman's "march to the sea" and continued on, with the 
Army, through the Carol inas. The unit then took part in the 
Grand Review held in Washington, D.C. on May 24, 1865, 
before leaving for Louisville, Kentucky where it was 
mustered out of service. The men received their final pay 
and were discharged at Chicago, Illinois on July 17, 1865. 

The Fifty-Fourth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
organized at Camp Dubois (Anna), Illinois in November 1861, 
and mustered into service on February 18, 1862. The entire 
regiment was comprised of companies recruited from counties 
in the east-central part of the state. '^' Primarily, Edgar 
County natives enlisted in Company F, although several 
enrolled in Company K. Captain John B. Hannah of Paris was 
the commander of Company F.

Bloomfield natives also being listed. None of those In

while in the service. The unit's most "famous" role of the 
war occurred at the infamous Charleston, Illinois "riot" in 
March 1864."^^ 

In late May 1863, the regiment participated in the 
Union siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi before being sent to 
Arkansas as part of the expedition against Little Rock. In 
January 1864, the unit re-enlisted and veterans were given a 
furlough home. It was during the unit's re-assembling that 
the Charleston "riot" occurred. On March 28, 1864, a band of 
Copperheads opened fire on a group of soldiers of the 54th 
in downtown Charleston, Illinois. When the shooting had 
stopped, nine people were dead, including some soldiers of 
the 54th. Among these was Major Shubal York (Regimental 
Surgeon) of Paris.'*'^ 

After returning to Little Rock, the regiment was sent 
to Brownsville, Arkansas where it conducted a pursuit of 
Confederate General Joseph Shelby's Army. Upon returning to 
Little Rock in October, the regiment was mustered out of 
service. After traveling back to Camp Butler the men were 
discharged and issued their final pay. 

The Fifty-Ninth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
originally organized and mustered into service as the Ninth 
Missouri Infantry on September 18, 1861, at St. Louis, 
Missouri. The unit, however, was primarily comprised of 
companies raised in the state of Illinois.^'^ Company H of 

the regiment contained over seventy volunteers from Edgar

County and was commanded by Captain Albert Anthony of 
Kansas. Most of those enlisting in the company were from 
Kansas, with a few Paris natives also enrolling. Only two 
Edgar County members of the company were killed during the 
entire war. In addition, only one Edgar Countian was listed 
as being a deserter. Most of the company's volunteers 
re-enlisted and mustered out with the regiment, with very 
few dying or being di scharged.^^ 

In early February 1862, by an order of the War 
Department, the 9th Missouri was changed to the 59th 
Illinois.^^ The unit then proceeded towards Arkansas where 
it participated in the Battle of Pea Ridge on March 7th and 
8th reporting over sixty casualties including Privates John 
W. Hurst and William H. Smith both of Kansas and members of 
Company H.^'^ The unit then took part in the Battle of 
Perryville, Kentucky (October 8th) where it suffered over 
one-hundred casual t i es .^'^ In late December the regiment 
participated in the Battle of Stones River where it suffered 
another eighty casual t ies.^^ Fortunately, no Edgar Countians 
were killed at Perryville or Stones River. 

The regiment then set out on the Tullahoma Campaign in 
June 1863, and encountered the enemy at Liberty Gap, 
Tennessee. The unit also participated in the siege of 
Chattanooga, Tennessee, before starting out on the Lookout 
Mountain Campaign in late November 1863. The unit was then 

sent to the battlefield at Chickamaugua, where it was

assigned the unpleasant task of burying the dead left from 
the battle in September. ° In mid-January 1864, after 
returning to Chattanooga, the regiment re-enlisted as a 
veteran unit. During the Atlanta Campaign the regiment 
encountered the enemy at Tunnel Hill, Rocky Faced Ridge, and 
Resaca . 

While the unit was stationed at Columbia, Tennessee it 
was attacked by rebel forces on November 27, 1864, killing 
Recruit George W. Ingram (Company K) of Prairie Township.^' 
In the last weeks of 1864, the regiment participated in the 
Battles of Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee where it fought 
courageously. In April 1865, the regiment was sent to Texas 
and after arriving in San Antonio, was stationed at New 
Braunfels. Here, on December 8, 1865, the regiment was 
mustered out of service. After traveling back to 
Springfield, Illinois, the men received their final pay and 
were discharged. 

The Sixty-Second Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
organized at Camp Dubois (Anna), Illinois on April 10, 1862. 
This regiment was recruited primarily in the counties from 
the southern part of the state. However, Company K contained 
many volunteers from Edgar County. ^° Those enrolled in this 
company were from various parts of the county, with several 
being from Grandview Township. Surprisingly, no Edgar 
Countians in the regiment were killed during the war and 

very few died while serving with this unit.^"

In late April the regiment was sent to Cairo, Illinois 
where it remained two weeks before being sent to Paducah, 
Kentucky. The regiment also participated in brief excursions 
to Grand Junction and Holly Springs, Mississippi. In April 
1863, the unit was sent to LaGrange, Tennessee, where it 
remained until August. After being sent to Arkansas in the 
late summer, the outfit engaged the enemy at Brownsville on 
September 10th. The regiment then drove the enemy from 
Little Rock, Arkansas and forced the evacuation of that 
city. 

In early January 1864, the unit re-enlisted as a 
veteran organization and was moved to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, 
where it spent eight months in camp. While in camp here, 
several Edgar Count ians died from an outbreak of 
disease. °^ In November 1864, all non-veterans were ordered 
to return to Illinois for mustering out. The remaining men 
were then consolidated into seven companies and remained at 
Pine Bluff until July 1865. The regiment was then sent to 
Fort Gibson, Cherokee Nation (Oklahoma), where it remained 
until March 1866. The unit was mustered out of service at 
Little Rock, and after returning to Springfield in late 
March, the men received their final pay and were discharged. 

Originally, the Sixty-Fourth Illinois Infantry Regiment 
(also known as "Yate's Sharpshooters")^^ was comprised of 
only six companies. The unit was mustered into service in 

December 1861, at Camp Butler, Illinois. In January 1864,

the regiment re-enllsted and four more companies Joined the 
outfit.^^ One of these was Company H, which was comprised 
primarily of Edgar Countians. Captain John H. Stoner of 
Paris was the company's commander. In keeping with the 
theme of this paper, only the regimental history of the unit 
after January 1864, will be discussed. Prior to this, 
however, the unit had a colorful and distinguished career. 

Almost all of those in the company were from the 
western townships of Buck, Grandview, and Kansas, with many 
serving as officers. Although several Edgar Countians in the 
company died during their short period of service, only 
three were killed in action. Two of these were killed at the 
Battle of Kenesaw Mountain. The majority of volunteers 
either were discharged or mustered out with the regiment."^ 

On March 17, 1864, the regiment set out for Decatur, 
Alabama and in early May Joined General William T. Sherman- s 
Army near Chattanooga, Tennessee. The regiment then took 
part in the Battle of Kenesaw Mountain on June 27, 1864, 
reporting fifty-seven men killed and wounded, including 
Privates Nathan 0. Wilber and Josiah Mishler both of Company 
H and from Paris. ^^ In mid-July 1864, the unit set out for 
Atlanta where it was involved In the battle here on the 22nd 
of the month. The unit again suffered heavily here as over 
one-hundred casualties were reported, including Captain 
Stoner of Company H . ^^ 

In November the unit started with General William

Sherman on his "march to the sea." At the conclusion of the 
war, the regiment participated in the Grand Review held in 
Washington, D.C. on May 24th. In early June the unit 
returned to Louisville, Kentucky where it was mustered out 
of service. On July 18, 1865, the men received their final 
pay and were discharged at Chicago, Illinois. 

The Sixty-Sixth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
originally organized as the Fourteenth Missouri Infantry at 
Benton Barracks <St. Louis), Missouri during the fall of 
1861. Designated as a regiment of western sharpshooters, the 
unit was commonly referred to as "Birge's Sharpshooters.""^ 
Eight companies of the outfit were recruited from the 
midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, 
Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio. Company E was recruited in 
Edgar County, with Captain Andrew K. Campbell of Paris 
commandi ng. 

Almost two-hundred men from the county were enrolled in 
this company, making it the second largest contingent of 
Edgar Count ians to serve in one unit. Most of these 
volunteers were from the western townships of Grandview, 
Buck, and Kansas. Originally, only one officer in the 
regiment was from Edgar County. This was Chaplain James M. 
Alexander of Paris. Later, Chaplain Alexander was promoted 
colonel of the 1st Alabama Artillery regiment. Only one 
volunteer from Edgar County was killed during the war, yet 

several died during the unit's term of service. Several

Edgar Countians in the company re-enlisted with the regiment 
and mustered out . ' 

The first major action that Birge''s Sharpshooters 
experienced was at the Battle of Fort Donelson in February 
1862. After moving to Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee in early 
March, the unit participated in the Battle of Shiloh on 
April 6th and 7th, 1862. Before the battle, the unifs name 
had been changed to that of the 14th Missouri Infantry. °° 

In April the regiment moved to Corinth, Mississippi 
where it remained until August. After brief excursions to 
Glendale and luka, Mississippi, the regiment returned to 
Corinth taking part in the battle here on October 3rd and 
4th. In late November, by an order of Governor Richard Yates 
of Illinois and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, the name of 
the unit was again changed to that of the 66th Illinois 
Infantry Regiment. °" 

In early November, the regiment departed for Pulaski, 
Tennessee where it re-enlisted as a veteran organization. At 
this time, a majority of the men in the regiment purchased 
their own Henry repeating rifles. With the death of Colonel 
Patrick Burke on May 20, 1864, Captain Andrew K. Campbell 
(Company E) of Paris was promoted colonel of the regiment. ° 
The unit then started out on the the Atlanta 
Campaign and was heavily engaged at Rome, Georgia. Private 
John M. York (Company E) of Paris was among those killed 
here.'^ At the Battle of Kenesaw Mountain the unit was

again engaged with the enemy. Here Private John H. Lorimer 
(Company G) of Edgar County was killed in action. ^ 

In late August those volunteers whose enlistment terms 
had expired, were mustered out of service, and after the 
fall of Atlanta, the remainder of the unit participated in 
General Sherman's "march to the sea." At the end of the war 
the regiment marched in the Grand Review held in Washington. 
From Washington the unit returned to Camp Logan, Kentucky 
and was mustered out of service on June 7, 1865. Eight days 
later the men were discharged and issued their final pay at 
Camp Butler, Illinois. 

The Seventy-Ninth Illinois Infantry Regiment was 
organized by Colonel Lyman Guinnip of Mattoon, Illinois and 
mustered into service on August 28, 1862, at Danville, 
Illinois. "^ The entire regiment was comprised of companies 
recruited in east-central Illinois counties.''^ More 
specifically, a total of four companies <A,C,D, and H) were 
made up solely of volunteers from Edgar County. The 350 plus 
men in these four companies alone represent almost a third 
of the regiment's total aggregate strength. ^^ This was, by 
far, the greatest concentration of men from Edgar County in 
any regiment. A few of the regiment's staff officers were 
from Edgar County, including Lieutenant Colonels Sheridan P. 
Read and Henry E. Rives of Paris. Read had been a prominent 

lawyer in Paris prior to enlisting in the regiment.'^

Company A of the regiment was mainly comprised of 
volunteers from the northern portions of the county and was 
commanded by Captain Terrence Clark of Ross Township. 
Several in the company were killed or died from wounds 
received in battle. Those killed sacrificed their lives at 
such battles as Stones River, Liberty Gap and Resaca.^^ 

In Company C were many volunteers from Paris, Stratton, 
and Elbridge Townships. Commanded by Captain David S. Curtis 
of Paris, this company's entire staff was made up of Edgar 
Countians. In fact, of the ninety-two men enrolled in this 
company, eighty-eight were from Edgar County. As with 
Company A, many in Company C were killed at the battles of 
Stones River, Liberty Gap, Kenesaw Mountain, and 
Chickamauga. In addition, many more died from wounds 
received in combat and only one volunteer from Edgar County 
was listed as deserting, the army, from this company. ^^ 

In Company D were enlisted some ninety-eight volunteers 
from Edgar County. Most of these men were from the Paris, 
Bloomfield, and Logan areas of the county. Captain Thomas A. 
Young of Paris was the unit's commander. Not as many Edgar 
Countians in this company were killed on the battlefield as 
those reported in Companies A and C. However, several died 
during the war from diseases and wounds received in various 
battles. Again, only one Edgar Countian was listed as 
deserting from this company.'^

of the county, particularly Kansas Township. Eighty-six of 
the company's one-hundred and one memtaers were from Edgar 
County. Although only five members of the unit were killed 
in combat, many more died while in the service. Led by 
Captain Willis 0. Pinnell of Kansas, all of the company's 
officers were from the county."^ 

After being sent to Louisville, Kentucky, the unit 
marched throughout Kentucky, finally arriving at Nashville, 
Tennessee in early November. During the march to Nashville, 
Colonel Lyman Guinnip resigned and Lt . Colonel Sheridan Read 
was promoted as colonel. °^ At the Battle of Stones River 
(December 31, 1862 - January 2, 1863), the regiment was 
positioned on the Union right, where it was brigaded with 
its sister unit, the 34th Illinois. As the battle progressed 
and the right wing was swept from the field, the 79th 
suffered over two-hundred casualties.®^ Among those killed 
were eleven Edgar Countians including Colonel Read.°^ 

During the winter of 1862-63, the regiment remained in 
camp at Murfreesboro and in the spring set out toward 
Liberty Gap, Tennessee, participating in the battle here on 
June 25, 1863. The regiment suffered forty-seven casulties 
at Liberty Gap, including five killed."'^ Four of these 
were from Edgar County, including Captain John H. Patton 
(Company C) of Paris.®^ 

The regiment then participated in the Battle of 
Chickamauga, Georgia on September 19 and 20, 1863. Here the

unit suffered over one-hundred casualties, including two 
more Edgar Count ians.^^ In late November 1863, the regiment 
took part in the campaign of Chattanooga. Killed at the 
Battle of Missionary Ridge was Private Asa Williams (Company 
H) of Kansas."' The regiment then started out on the Atlanta 
Campaign in early May 1864. On this campaign the unit 
participated in engagements at Rocky Faced Ridge, Resaca, 
Kenesaw Mountain, Dallas, Peachtree Creek, Atlanta, Lovejoy 
Station, and Jonesboro. Among those killed on this campaign 
were three soldiers from Edgar County. Private Barnard Carr 
(Company C) of Embarrass Township met his death at the 
Battle of Kenesaw Mountain, while Privates Pleasant 
Hendricks (Company H) of Kansas and John Fregon (Company A) 
of Ross Twonship were both killed at Resaca. °° 

On November 30, 1864, the regiment took part in the 
Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, and after falling back to 
Nashville, participated in the Battle of Nashville on 
December 15th and 16th. Killed at the Battle of Franklin was 
Private James M. Burket (Company C) of Par is. °^ The unit was 
mustered out of service on June 12, 1865, at Nashville. Upon 
their arrival at Camp Butler, Illinois the men were 
discharged and issued their final pay. 

The Seventh Illinois Cavalry Regiment was organized and 
mustered into service on October 31, 1861, at Camp Butler, 
Illinois. This regiment was mainly comprised of companies 

recruited from throughout the state. ^ Company A, however, 

-43-

was primarily made up of volunteers from Edgar County, with 
Captain William D. Blackburn of Paris as the company's 
commander . 

Over one-hundred Edgar Count ians enlisted in Company A, 
and although the company's combat record was not as glorious 
as other units, it still was significant. The role played by 
Edgar Countians in the regiment's most famous campaign is 
testimony to this. During "Grlerson''s Raid" through 
Mississippi in 1863, several Edgar Countians played 
prominent roles, including Sergeant Richard Surby and 
Captain William D. Blackburn, whose naimes are forever etched 
into the unit's history."^ Although only two Edgar Countians 
of Company A were killed in action during the war, many 
others died from wounds or disease. 

Early in the spring of 1862, the regiment joined other 
Federal forces in marching to New Madrid, Missouri. With the 
evacuation of Corinth, Mississippi, the 7th Illinois Cavalry 
defended the Memphis and Charleston Railroad from Tuscumbia 
to Decatur, Alabama. While engaged in a skirmish in late 
August, Private Amanda G. Tweedy of Paris was mortally 
wounded. ^^ During this time, the unit participated in the 
Battles of luka (September 19) and Corinth (October 3rd and 
4th), Mississippi. 

On January 1, 1863, the regiment returned to LaGrange, 
Tennessee and was brigaded together with the 2nd Iowa 

Cavalry and 6th Illinois Cavalry regiments. Under the 

-h4-

command of Colonel Henry B. Grlerson, the units left 
LaGrange for Baton Rouge, Louisiana on the now famous 
"Grierson Raid," on April 17, 1863. In Just over fifteen 
days the regiments were able to drive deep into the heart of 
Confederate held territory and reak havoc upon the 
countryside . 

After remaining at Baton Rouge for two weeks, the 
combined regiments moved north to occupy Port Hudson, 
Mississippi and took part in the Battle of Plain's Store. In 
May 1863, Major William Blackburn of Paris died of wounds he 
received during Grierson''s raid.*^"^ With the fall of 
Vicksburg and Port Hudson in July 1863, Grierson's command 
was ordered to Memphis, Tennessee where it was assigned to 
railroad duty along the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. In 
March 1864, the regiment re-enlisted as a veteran unit. At 
this time, many new recruits from Edgar County Joined the 
regiment . 

During the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee (November 30) 
the regiment charged a division of rebel infantry and drove 
it back across the Harpeth River. At the Battle of Nashville 
(December 15th and 16th, 1864), the regiment was involved in 
some of the heaviest fighting of the battle. Killed in a 
minor skirmish near Franklin on the 16th of December was 
Private John M. Martin of Paris. '^'^ After the war ended, the 
regiment was moved to Decatur, Alabama. In October 1865, the 

unit was sent to Nashville and mustered out of service.

Besides those regiments already discussed, many other 
Illinois units also contained Edgar County natives. Table 6 
lists some of these regiments along with the known number of 
Edgar Countians in each. Four such regiments listed in Table 
6 which contained significant numbers of Edgar Countians 
but, were not mentioned earlier include the 68th, 70th,

Both the 68th Illinois Infantry and the 70th 
Illinois Infantry were three-month regiments recruited 
strictly for use as state militia. ^ In the case of the 
68th, this regiment was eventually stationed at 
Alexandria, Virginia as provost guards. Over forty 
soldiers from Edgar County enrolled in this regiment, 
serving in several different companies. ^° The 70th 
Illinois was not as fortunate as the 68th in that it 
remained at Camp Butler, Illinois during its entire 
period of service performing guard duty."' Over seventy 
Edgar County volunteers enlisted in this regiment, many 
of whom had served in the 68th Illinois. 

The 135th Illinois Infantry Regiment was mustered 
in as a hundred-day organization in June 1864. During 
its term of service, this regiment primarily performed 
railroad guard duty in Missouri. Company C of this 
regiment contained over sixty men from Edgar County.^" 
In February 1865, the 150th Illinois Infantry Regiment 
was mustered into service for a period of one year. 
During this time the unit was stationed in Alabama and 
Tennessee. Of the eighty or so soldiers enrolled in 
this unit from Edgar County, most enlisted in Company 
C.99 

Some of the other Illinois regiments that 
contained Edgar Countians were recruited in the 
counties which surrounded Edgar. For example, both the 



1 ; ."' :: 



TC 



-I r- t 



123rd Illinois and 130th Illinois Infantry Regiments 
were recruited in Coles and Clark Counties. Company F 
of the 30th Illinois Infantry was jointly recruited 
from Edgar and Clark Count ies, ^'^'-' The thirty men from 
Edgar County that enlisted in this unit were all from 
El bridge Township. 

However, several of the regiments from Illinois 
that contained Edgar Countians were recruited in 
counties which were far-removed from Edgar. Two such 
regiments were the 51st and 53rd Illinois Infantry. 
Companies A and I of the 51st were both recruited in 
Cook, Knox and Henry Count les. ^'^^ Company H of the 
53rd Illinois, was mainly recruited in Marshall 
County. ^"^^ Another example was that of the 61st 
Illinois. Men from Edgar County in this unit enrolled 

in Companies E, H, and K which were primarily recruited 

1 n ■^ 
in Cass, Lawrence, and Greene Counties respect i ve 1 y . ■^^'^ 

There are various reasons used to explain why soldiers 

from one county appear in the ranks of a regiment 

recruited in a distant county. Many times recruits were 

simply placed into regiments which were not yet full. 

Other times, recruits joined with relatives or friends 

who resided in another county. Whatever their reasons 

might have been, Edgar Countians enlisted in many units 

which were recruited in far-off counties. 

Of those Edgar Countians serving in other Illinois

units, a few were killed in action. Among these were 
Privates Joseph Fears and Charles H. Thatcher (30th 
Illinois), from Elbridge, who were killed at the Battle 
of Atlanta on July 22, 1864.^'-''* In addition. Privates 
Troyet York, Elisha Bailey, and Theodore Linn all of 
the 51st Illinois were killed at the Battle of Franklin 
in November 1864.^°^ Also, Private William A. Miller of 
the 123rd Illinois Infantry Regiment was killed in 
action at the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky. ^°^ The 
last known Edgar Count i an killed during the war was 
Recruit Samuel Coolly (Company G, 8th Illinois) of 
Young America Township who was killed at Fort Blakley, 
Alabama on April 9, 1865.^'-'^ Ironically, this was the 
same day in which Confederate General Robert E. Lee 
surrendered his army to General Ulysses S. Grant at 
Appomattox Court House, Virginia. 

Although the majority of Edgar County volunteers 
served with Illinois units during the Civil War many 
also enlisted with out-of-state regiments. Of the total 
number of Edgar Countians in out-of-state units, the 
largest number served with Bissell's Engineer Regiment 
of the West. This unit was organized by Colonel Josiah 
Bissell at St. Louis, Missouri in August 1861. Since 
well over one-hundred men from Edgar County served with 
this unit, a brief regimental history has been included 

here .

In the summer of 1861 many Edgar Count lana 
volunteered their services in Bissell's Engineer 
Regiment of the West. Primarily those from Edgar County 
enlisted in Company B or H . Company B was organized at 
Paris in July and mustered into service at St. Louis on 
August 5, 1861 with Captain Charles T. Powell of Paris 
commanding. ^^° Company H was also organized at Paris 
and mustered into service on October 31, 1861. 
Originally, this company did not contain a sufficient 
number of men and Captain Nathaniel D. Sanford returned 
to Paris to enlist more recruits. Upon his return, 
Sanford chose not to muster in with the unit.^'-''^ The 
majority of Edgar Countians enrolled in Bissell's 
Regiment were from the townships of Stratton, Elbridge, 
Paris, and Symmes. Most of the other companies in the 
regiment were recruited throughout the states of the 
mi dwest .^^ 

In March 1862, the unit participated in operations 
against New Madrid and Island Number Ten. The unit then 
constructed the New Madrid Canal which allowed Union 
gunboats a shorter route through the swamp 1 ands . ^ ^ ^ The 
unit also participated in both the siege and Battle 
of Corinth, Mississippi (October, 1862), and in the 
operations against Vicksburg, Mississippi (spring of 
1863), In February 1864, Bissell's regiment was 

consolidated with the 25th Missouri Infantry at

Nashville, Tennessee. Upon the consolidation, the 
combined units were renauned the 1st Missouri Engineer 
Regiment. ^^^ This regiment also took part in General 
Sherman-'s "march to the sea," where it was in charge of 
the pontoons used for the crossing of rivers. At the 
conclusion of the war, the regiment participated in the 
Grand Review held in Washington, D.C. in late May. 

Other Missouri units which contained volunteers 
from Edgar County were the 11th and 26th Missouri 
Infantry, and the 1st and 5th Missouri Militia. Other 
out-of-state units containing Edgar Countlans, were 
those recruited in the State of Indiana. However, the 
number of men from Edgar County in these units was not 
as great as the number who enlisted with the Missouri 
units. Of the few Indiana units that contained soldiers 
from Edgar County, most were organized at Terre Haute, 
Indiana. Two such regiments were the 71st Indiana 
Infantry (6th Cavalry) and the 85th Indiana 
Infantry. ^^^ 

Some Edgar Countians also enlisted with units not 
organized at Terre Haute. The 11th Indiana Cavalry 
Regiment (126th Infantry), which contained a large 
number of Edgar Countians, was organized and mustered 
into service at Indianapolis, Indiana. The 13th Cavalry 
(131st Infantry) was also organized at Indi anapoi i s . ^ ^ '^ 

Edgar Countians in the former unit were enrolled in

Companies A and F, while those in the latter were 
enrolled in Company K. ^^ 

One of the more interesting outfits which 
contained natives of Edgar County was the 18th Indiana 
Battery of Light Artillery. Organized and commanded by 
Captain Eli Lilly of Greencastle, Indiana, this unit 
played a prominent role in several battles including 
the Battle of Chickamauga. This unit was composed of 
companies which were recruited in counties of 
west-central Indiana. ^^ Men from Edgar County in this 
unit were primarily from the Elbrdige area. 

Besides the Edgar Countians who enlisted in units 
from Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri, a few enrolled 
with Federal outfits. However, the number of volunteers 
from Edgar County in these units was minimal. For 
example, only six Edgar Countians were enrolled in the 
United States Navy during the Civil War. Contained in 
the Appendix is a listing of all those known to have 
served from Edgar County. 

Besides military contributions to the Civil War, 
one Edgar Count ian contributed to the war in a most 
different way. This was William D.T. Travis who became 
famous after the war for his paintings depicting the 
conflict. Born in Augusta County, Virginia on July 13, 
1839, Travis was living with his family, in rural Edgar 

County as early as 1840.^^^ In 1860, Travis was living

in the Dudley vicinity where he listed his occupation, 
in the census, as painter. Sometime before the war 
William Travis entered Waveland Collegiate Institute in 
Indiana to study painting. ^^° 

When the war broke out Travis first joined Company 
E of the 12th Illinois Infantry Regiment in April 1861. 
On August 1, 1861, when the unit re-enlisted as a 
three-year outfit, Travis also re-enlisted.^^" In 
September 1861, by special order of U. S. Grant, Travis 
was transferred, along with his brother Henry, to 
Company I of the 22nd Illinois listing his residence 
then as Randolph County. ^^"^ After serving three years, 
Travis was mustered out of the service on July 7, 1864 
at Springfield, Illinois. During the war Travis was 
employed by Harper^s Weekly and the New York 
Illustrated News , submitting sketches to both.^^^ 

After the war, Travis moved to Burlington, New 
Jersey where he continued painting in his home studio. 
He was then commissioned, by the generals of the Army 
of the Cumberland, to paint a large mural depicting the 
history of this army. When finished the mural measured 
over five-hundred feet long by eight feet high. 
Comprised of thirty-two panels, the painting was rolled 
and mounted on two spindles for lecturing purposes. 
Travis then took the mural on tour with his younger 
brother James. Lecturing across the midwest, he made

people quit coming to see the show. Travis then retired 

the mural to the attic in his Burlington farm house.

the artist''s nephew and is now on display in the Museum

CHAPTER III 
EDGAR COUNTY ON THE BATTLEFIELD 

Perhaps the best representation of Edgar County's 
military contribution to the war effort was that made on the 
battlefield. Although it would take many pages to describe 
the role Edgar Countians played in every battle of the war, 
one particular engagement has been chosen for inclusion in 
this paper. This was the Battle of Stones River or 
Murf reesboro, Tennessee. There are two reasons for choosing 
this battle as a representation of Edgar County's military 
contribution on the field of battle. First, there were more 
Edgar Countians present at this battle than in any other 
single engagement during the entire war. Secondly, more 
soldiers from Edgar County were killed in this battle than 
in any other battle of the Civil War. Thus, the Battle of 
Stones River is the best example of Edgar County's role on 
the battlefield during the Civil War. 

Present at Stones River were approximately six-hundred 
soldiers from Edgar County, most of whom were enrolled in 
the 21st, 25th, 34th, 59th, and 79th Illinois Infantry 
Regiments. Other units present at Stones River which 
contained soldiers from Edgar County included the 51st, 
123rd, and 125th Illinois Infantry Regiments. Although the 
Battle of Stones River was a three-day battle (December 31, 
1862 - January 2, 1863), only the first day of battle will 

be discussed in this paper. This was because the majority of 

- 55-

-1 r- ' 



Edgar Countians saw very little action during the last two 
days of battle. 

The five Illinois regiments listed above were all part 
of General Alexander McCook's right wing, which was the main 
focus of the Confederate Armys attack when the battle 
began. Located on the extreme right of McCook's wing was 
General Richard W. Johnson's division which contained the 
brigades of General Augustus Willich, General Edward Kirk, 
and Colonel P. Baldwin. Kirk's brigade contained the 34th 
and 79th Illinois regiments.^ (See Map 4) 

Long before daylight on the 31st, General Willich sent 
out a patrol to investigate the possibility of an attack at 
dawn. After the patrol returned with no report of the enemy, 
Willich was convinced that an attack seemed remote. This 
attitude was shared by most commanders on the Union right. ^ 
However, shortly after six o'clock, the rebels attacked in 
full force. Although McCook had nearly sixteen thousand 
troops under his command compared to the ten thousand 
Confederates, the Union troops were totally unprepared for 
the attack."^ Most men in Johnson's division were still 
preparing breakfast when the rebels struck, and were so 
overcome by fear they simply turned and fled to the rear.^ 

As the men of Wi Mich's and Kirk's brigades ran towards 
the rear, many were heard shouting the word " Sh i 1 oh . " It had 
only been nine months since the rebels had surprised the 

Union Army at Sh i 1 oh in much the same manner. General 

-56- 



.. CI"; 



•i, --i I - 1 : 



Wllliaan Hardee s corps, which led the assault at Sh i 1 oh , was 
attacking from the same direction, the south, at the same 
time in the morning, and with the same result. It was no 
wonder that "Shiloh" was the word that popped into the minds 
of the Union soldiers.^ 

Almost as soon as the rebels attacked Kirk^s brigade, 
he ordered the 34th Illinois to fall back and support 
Captain Warren Edgarton's (1st Ohio Light Artillery) 
battery, which was situated in the left rear of the 34th. 
The rebels came pouring in so fast, however, that Edgarton's 
men hardly had any chance to fire their guns.^ As the 
shattered remnants of Kirk's brigade were being driven back 
by the onrushing Confederates, General Kirk himself was 
mortally wounded and the command was passed on to Colonel 
Joseph Dodge. The struggle for the regimental colors of the 
34th was a bloody affair as five color bearers fell in 
succession before the flag was finally born triumphantly 
from the field by the Confederates. ' 

As the troops in Willich's and Dodge's (late Kirk's) 
brigades became intermingled, disorder prevailed and was 
compounded when the retreating troops ran directly through 
units stationed in the rear. Such was the case when the 34th 
crashed into the ranks of its sister unit, the 79th 
Illinois. The 79th had been guarding the division's supply 
train the day before and was stationed behind the main Union

Meanwhile, Major Allen Buckner of the 79th rode up and 
reported to Colonel Dodge that his unit was ready to do what 
it could. Led by Colonel Sheridan Read of Paris, this unit 
was relatively new and had yet to see any combat, but it 
"advanced with the steadiness of a veteran outfit. "'^ Taking 
a position on the right of the 30th Indiana, the 79th 
immediately began to pour a heavy fire into the ranks of the 
rebels. In urging his men into battle Colonel Read was shot 
and killed instantly. Major Buckner later reported that, "he 
[Buckner] went to where the colonel had fallen and found 
that he had been shot directly in the forehead, thus falling 
at his post and facing the enemy." ^'-' Colonel Dodge wrote in 
his battle report that "in his [Read''s] death the service 
has lost a fine officer, a brave soldier, and a true man . " ^ ^ 

At this point in the battle, the Confederate troops 
began to put pressure on General Jefferson C. Davis' 
division which was located on the left of Johnson. Among 
those units in Davis' division were the 21st, 25th, and 59th 
Illinois Infantry Regiments. Of these, the 59th was 
positioned the farthest right in Colonel Sidney Post's 
brigade. ^^ To the left of Post was General William Carlin's 
brigade that contained the 21st Illinois commanded by 
Colonel John W. S. Alexander of Paris. ^'^ On Davis' far left 
was Colonel Williamn Woodruff's brigade which contained the 
25th Illinois.^"^ (See Map 4) 

Having more time to prepare for the Confederate attack, 

-59- 



i ."; 



the troops in Davis' division put up a much stiffer 
resistance than those in Johnson's division. As the rebels 
plowed into the ranks of the awaiting Union soldiers, the 
fighting became intense and heavy casualties were inflicted 
on both sides. Eventually, Davis was forced to withdraw his 
division to prevent its being outflanked. The retreat by 
Davis' troops was much more orderly than that undertaken by 
troops in Johnson's division. 

The brunt of the Confederate attack now fel 1 upon the 
divisions of Generals Phillip Sheridan and George Thomas. 
Sheridan's men managed to hold off the onrushing Confedrates 
long enough to allow the retreating Union units time to make 
it to safety. This delay probably prevented a complete rout 
of the Union Army by the rebels. ^^ 

Another factor which allowed the Union lines time to 
re-group was that the Confederate attack was beginning to 
"run out of steam." Many rebels were becoming fatigued and 
coupled with shortages in ammunition stopped momentarily to 
replinish their supplies and catch their breaths. Many of 
the rebel units had become separated as the attack went 
along creating some confusion among the Confederate ranks. ^^ 
All of these elements allowed the Union lines time to 
re-group and re-form another line of defense. 

Throughout the remainder of the morning, the Union 
lines fought desperately to prevent defeat. Holding their 

position astride the Nashville Pike they fought hard as the 

-60-

. r. r .1 n -. 



~> -i'\ 



."1 ■. . 



-: '1 ■ 



Confederates made repeated attacks against them. From 
mid-day until dusk the Union troops held a small rise of 
ground covered with a clump of cedars. After-battle reports 
referred to this area as the "Round Forest," but, to those 
who fought so desperately to defend this position, it became 
known as "Hell's Half Acre."^"^ 

By mid-afternoon the first day's fighting was 
tactically over. Confederate General Braxton Bragg had 
failed in his goal to cut the Union supply line to 
Nashville. The rebels, who had fought so well almost all day 
still had not achieved complete victory. For the most part, 
the role played by Edgar Countians at Stone River was over 
by mid-day. Since the majority of Edgar Countians were 
either in Davis' or Johnson's divisions, these units had 
remained in action, but from behind the Union lines the 
remainder of the day. 

After spending New Year's Day re-grouping and 
re-positioning their lines, both armies renewed the fighting 
on January 2nd. This time the action centered on the Union 
left. Three rebel attacks, led by Confederate General John 
C. Breckinridge, were unsuccessful in dislodging the Union 
Army. On January 3rd the rebels began to withdraw from the 
battlefield and the Union Army, by virtue of remaining in 
possession of the field, declared itself the victor. 

Edgar County's role at the Battle of Stones River can 

-61- 



i .1 ; 



'.' 'rf'.M '. U 



i J , 



also be measured in the sacrifices its soldiers made on the 
battlefield. Almost a quarter of all Edgar Countians killed 
In battle during the entire Civil War, fell at Stones River. 
Interestingly, only the 21st Illinois and the 79th Illinois 
Infantry Regiments reported Edgar Countians killed at Stones 
River. In the 21st Illinois, which reported the most 
casualties (over three-hundred) of any other Illinois unit, 
seven men from Edgar County were killed in action. ^^ (See 
Page 64) In addition. Colonel Alexander was wounded. The 
79th Illinois reported a total of eleven soldiers from Edgar 
County killed, including Colonel Read.-^^ (See Page 64) In 
comparing the number of Edgar Countians killed at Stones 
River with those of each regiment, a better indication of 
the county's role can be seen. Table 7 lists the number of 
casualties for the principle Edgar County regiments present 
at Stones River. 

From examining Table 7 it is clear which of those 
regiments received the greatest number of casualties at 
Stones River. The 21st Illinois reported fifty-seven 
soldiers killed at Stones River. Thus, the seven Edgar 
Countians killed, out of this unit, represent only 14 
percent of the unifs total number of men killed. In 
contrast, the 79th Illinois which reported twenty-four 
soldiers killed in action contained eleven Edgar Countians 

who were killed. This represents 46 percent of the unit's 

-62- 



. ■ " I 



total. Thus, almost half of those killed in the 79th 
Illinois were residents of Edgar County.

Surprisingly, both the 25th and 59th Illinois suffered 
relatively few casualties. Both reported very few men as 
missing, probably due to the orderly retreat undertaken by 
both units. Both the 34th and 79th Illinois faired better 
than most regiments despite the fierce Confederate attack 
each withstood. The low number of men killed in the 34th can 
be attributed to the hasty retreat undertaken by this unit. 
However, this hasty retreat may also be the reason for the 
large number of men listed as missing. The large number of 
men missing from the 79th was probably because of the 
confusion generated when other units crashed into it. The 

21st Illinois suffered its extremely high rate of

Besides participating at Stones River, Edgar County 
soldiers were involved in many other battles during the 
Civil War. Although it would take many pages to describe 
every engagement, both large and small, that involved Edgar 
County troops, some of the more famous ones deserve mention. 

The first major battle of the Western Theater which 
involved troops from Edgar County occurred at Fort Done) son, 
Tennessee in February 1862. Located on the bank of the 
Cumberland River, this strategic fortress was finally 
captured by the Union forces, but not without heavy 

casualties. Among the Union units present at Fort Donelson 

-64- 



were the 12th, 29th, and 66th Illinois Infantry (Birges 

Sharpshooters). The 12th Illinois was part of John 

McArthur's first brigade, while Birge's Sharpshooters were 

assigned to Jacob Lauman's fourth brigade of General Charles 

Smith's second division. The 29th Illinois was with Richard 

J. Oglesby^s first brigade of General John McCl ernand' s 

first division. 20 ^t Fort Donelson six Edgar County men were 

reported killed in action. All were members of the 12th and 

29th Illinois Infantry units. ^1 Those killed at Fort 

Donelson are listed below. 

Tobias Bower - 12th Illinois (E) 
Peter Geraty - 29th Illinois (H) 
Newton M. Johnson - 29th Illinois <H) 
Oliver P. Scott - 29th Illinois (H) 
William T. Smith - 29th Illinois <H) 

In early March 1862, at Pea Ridge, Arkansas Union and 
Confederate forces again came into contact with each other. 
Here, two Illinois regiments containing natives of Edgar 
County were part of General Samuel S. Curtis'" army. While 
the 25th Illinois reported no Edgar County casualties, Edgar 
Countians John W. Hurst and William H. Smith of the 59th 
Illinois (Company H) met their deaths. ^^ 

In the bloody battle of Shiloh, Tennessee (April 6th 
and 7th, 1862), seven more Edgar Countians lost their lives. 
Fighting here were the 12th, 29th, 34th, and 66th Illinois 
Infantry. Three of these outfits (12th, 29th, and 66th) were 
members of the Union Army of the Tennessee, while the 34th 

Illinois was part of the Union Army of the Ohio. Both the 

-65- 



12th and 66th Illinois were brigaded together in John 

McArthur''s second brigade of General W.H.L. Wallace-'s second 

division. The 29th Illinois was part of Julius Raith's third 

brigade of General John McCl ernand' s first division. The 

34th Illinois was assigned to Edward N. Kirk's fifth brigade 

of General Alexander McCook''s second di v ision . "^"^ Of those 

Edgar Count ians killed at Shiloh, all were members of the 

12th, 29th, and 34th Illinois Infantry. ^^ Below are listed 

those Edgar Count ians killed at Shiloh. 

Charles Buckingham - 29th Illinois (H)

In June 1863, Union forces attacked the Confederate 

held mountain pass at Liberty Gap, Tennessee. In the 

attacking force were two Illinois regiments which contained 

Edgar Count ians. The 34th and 79th, were brigaded together 

in Joseph Dodge''s second brigade of General Richard 

Johnson's second division. ^^ When the attack was over, and 

the Union army had taken the pass, it was the 79th Illinois 

which reported the most casualties of all those units 

participating. Already depleted from its tough two-day stand 

at Stones River, the unit suffered an additional forty-seven 

casualties here including five who were killed.^^ Four of 

the five killed were from Edgar County. ^"^ Those killed are

Perhaps the bloodiest battle of the entire Western 

Theater of the the war occurred at Chickamauga, Georgia in 

September 1863. Edgar County soldiers also participated in 

this important battle, and several more were killed. Among 

the units at Chickamauga were the 21st, 25th, and 79th 

Illinois Infantry Regiments. Both the 21st and 25th were 

assigned to the second (William P. Carlin's) and third (Hans 

C. Heg''s) brigades, respectively, of General Jefferson C. 

Davis' first division. The 79th meanwhile, was part of

containing soldiers from Edgar County. In Isaac M. Kirby's

Besides the above mentioned battles, Edgar Countians 

also participated in such famous battles as Corinth, luka, 

Kenesaw Mountain, Nashville, Atlanta, Resaca , Perryville, 

and Chattanooga. In addition, Edgar County volunteers were 

involved in numerous smaller battles and skirmishes 

throughout the war. Besides participating, many also were

In all, seventy Edgar County soldiers were killed in 
action during the Civil War. This is only 3 percent of the 
county's total credit of 2,312 men. For the entire state, 
9,894 men were killed or mortally wounded which is 
approximat 1 ey 4.3 percent of the state's total credit. "^^ A 
few Edgar Count ians killed during the war were later buried 
within the county. However, most were buried in cemeteries 
located near where they were killed. Sometimes a family's 
wealth and influence determined whether or not their loved 
ones were returned home for re-burial. For example, both 
Colonels Read and Alexander are buried in Edgar Cemetery in 
Paris. No doubt the families of these two men could afford 
to have their bodies returned to Paris for burial. However, 
a few other Edgar County soldiers killed during the war are 
buried within the county. 

In addition to those Edgar Count ians who were killed in 
action during the war, many more died of wounds or disease. 
Some even died accldentlly as a result of drownings or other 
causes. Two such cases were that of Farrier Henry Faith (7th 
Illinois Cavalry - A) who was accidently killed by a ball 
from Union artillery, and Private William F. 0''Neal (29th 

Illinois - H) who was killed when a Federal magazine

exploded accident ly at Mobile, Alabama. "^ However, it is 
hard to determine how many men actually died from each cause 
because the Illinois Adjutant General ^s Report sometimes did 
not specify the exact cause of death. 

A total of 252 soldiers from Edgar County died during 
the war from all causes. This is almost 11 percent of the 
county's total credit figure of 2,312. The large number of 
Edgar Countians who died during the war is fitting testimony 
to the fact that disease took more lives during the Civil 
War than did the battlefield. Bell Wiley in his The Life of 
Billy Yank . quotes the research of the Surgeon General of 
the U.S. Army by writing that, "in the Federal forces four 
persons died of sickness for every one killed . . . deaths 
from disease were twice those resulting from all other known 
causes. "■^'^ Of the 252 Edgar Countians who died during the 
war, nineteen died as prisoners of war mainly at the 
infamous Andersonv i I I e Prison in Georgia. Other Confederate 
prisons in which Edgar County soldiers died at included 
Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia and the prison at 
Danv i 1 1 e , Virginia. 

In summary, 324 Edgar Countians sacrificed their lives 
during the Civil War. This includes those who were killed in 
action, died of disease or other causes, or died as 
prisoners of war. This figure represents 14 percent of the 
county's total credit, which is slightly lower than the 

state''s average of just over 16.5 percent. "^^

An interesting story involving one Edgar County 
casualty centers on Private John Schafer of Paris. The story 
of Schafer is unique in that he was reported as missing in 
action at the Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, making him 
the only known Edgar County participant and casualty of this 
famous battle. Private Schafer was forty years old when he 
enlisted with Company D of the 82nd Illinois in July 1862. 
Born in Bavaria, Germany, Schafer was a married farmer when 
he enlisted in the service. "^^ 

This unit was primarily recruited in the Cook County 
area and was comprised almost entirely of Germans."^' 
Organized by Colonel Frederick Hecker, the 82nd Illinois was 
commonly referred to as the "Second Hecker Regiment ." ■^° 
Unlike most Illinois units, the 82nd was sent first to the 
Eastern Theater of the war. Here it participated in many 
engagements including Chancel 1 orsv i 1 1 e , Virginia and 
Gettysburg. Later in the war, this unit was transferred to 
the Western Theater where it participated in such battles as 
Chickamauga and Atlanta. On the first day of battle at 
Gettysburg (July 1), the 82nd was positioned northwest of 
the city near the Theological Seminary. When the Confedrates 
attacked, the 82nd Illinois was one of many units which was 
forced to retreat through the city of Gettysburg. In an 
attempt to save their men from a devastating enemy fire, 
division commanders marched men diagonally across the town. 

The result was confusion that soon degenerated Into panic. ^" 

-71- 



Throughout the second and third days of the battle, the 
82nd Illinois occuppied a position on Cemetery Hill where 
they remained, for the most part, until the battle was over 
on July 3rd. In all likelihood. Private Schafer was reported 
as missing on the first day of battle. It is not known 
whatever became of John Schafer. Perhaps he was taken 
prisoner or just disappeared in the panic and confusion 
during the Union retreat through the streets of Gettysburg. 
Whatever happened, it is known that Private Schafer was a 
long way from his home that fateful July day in 
Pennsy 1 vani a.

CHAPTER IV 
EFFECTS OF THE WAR ON EDGAR COUNTY 

The effect that the Civil War had upon Edgar County can 
be measured in several ways, the most notable being an 
increase in violence which can be attributed to locally 
strong Copperhead activity. This Copperhead activity was the 
indirect result of political tension which existed in the 
county. Although anti-war feelings in Edgar County did not 
come to a boil until late in the war, the factors which 
created this tension had been brewing for several years. 

To understand why Copperhead activity even existed in 
Edgar County one must first examine the early immigration 
patterns of the county. Edgar County had first been settled 
by immigrants from Kentucky and Tennessee who were openly 
sympathetic with the South and the institution of slavery. 
Later groups of immigrants from the Northern states of 
Indiana and Ohio settled in Edgar County. As a result of 
this mixing of immigrant groups an animosity began to grow. 
As the Civil War dragged on this animosity grew until it 
finally erupted in violence.^ 

These two groups of immigrants also brought with them 
different political beliefs. Politically, Edgar County had 
voted Democratic as far back as the 1836 Presidential 
Election. Only in 1840 and again in 1848, did the voters of 
Edgar County favor the Whig Party candidate, and then only 

by sixty-three and thirteen votes respectively. However, the 

-73- 



li ; 



Democratic victories of 1836, 1844, and 1852 were by the 
slimmest of margins, with all being decided by fewer than 
three-hundred votes In Edgar County.^ 

Perhaps the reason for this strong showing offered the 
Democrats can be found in how the earlier generations had 
voted in the county. The large number of Southern immigrants 
who had settled in the county generally voted Democratic. As 
Northern immigrants began to settle in the county, the 
county's political scene also began to shift. Thus, by 1860, 
many second generation voters were also turning to the 
Democrats much like their fathers had done. However, the 
increasing numbers of Republican voters guaranteed neither 
party a "foothold" in Edgar County. 

Since Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas were the same 
candidates who had ran for the Illinois Senate seat in 1858, 
an examination of this election may explain why Edgar County 
voted as it did in 1860. In 1858, after a much celebrated 
campaign which included seven joint debates, Stephen Douglas 
narrowly defeated Abraham Lincoln for the senate seat. Both 
candidates had criss-crossed the state giving speeches 
supporting their party's platform. In fact, both had made 
visits to Edgar County during this campaign but, under very 
different circumstances. 

Stephen A. Douglas was scheduled to speak in Paris on 
July 30, 1858. However, several travel delays prevented him 

from arriving until six o^'clock in the morning on the 31st. 

-74- 



Even this delay did not dampen the crowd's spirit as many 
well wishers turned out for Douglas' speech."^ 

Abraham Lincoln's visit to Edgar County on September 8, 
1858, was a much different affair. According to one 
newspaper account, "the crowd was larger by five hundred 
than that which came together last month to make the Douglas 
'demonstration.''"^ Obviously a Republican sheet, the paper 
went on to write that "the doings yesterday eclipsed the 
'Dimmecrat iC [sic] performance in numbers, enthusiasm, and 
everything else."^ If one could judge the election based 
only on these accounts, Lincoln obviously should have 
carried the county. However, this was not the case as 
Douglas carried Edgar County on his way to claiming the 
Senate seat.^ 

Perhaps the 1858 Senatorial race was an indication of 
how evenly divided the county was prior to the Civil War. In 
the 1860 election Douglas out-polled Lincoln in the county 
by only 196 votes. Douglas'' total of 1,923 votes out of 
3,727 votes cast gave him a slight majority of 51.6 
percent.^ Lincoln received 1,727 votes for 46.3 percent.® 
These percentages were almost a reversal of those for both 
candidates at the state level. Lincoln received 172,171 
votes statewide or 50.7 percent, while Douglas gained 
160,205 votes for 47.2 percent of the vote.^ Interestingly, 

John Bell the Constitutional Union Party candidate and John 

-75-

t > . J ■'. _ 



C. Breckinridge, the Southern Democratic candidate both 
received votes in Edgar County. Bell picked up eleven votes 
to Breckinridge s sixty-six. ^ Both of these candidates 
received 4,913 and 2,402 votes respectively statewide. ^^ 

By examining the vote totals for the counties 
surrounding Edgar, it is clear that the voters in Edgar 
County were not alone in voting for Douglas in 1860. Both 
Cumberland and Clark Counties also voted In favor of Douglas 
by 411 and 280 votes respectively.^^ In Coles County, where 
some of Lincoln's relatives lived, the Republican candidate 
out-polled his opponent by only twenty-eight votes. ^^ In 
Vermilion County the margin of victory for Lincoln was the 
largest of any east- central Illinois county. Here Lincoln 
received over six-hundred more votes than Douglas. ^^ Newly 
created Douglas County also voted Lincoln the winner by over 
two-hundred votes. ^^ 

In the 1860 campaign both political parties had their 
own groups of supporters across the country and in Edgar 
County. The Democrats (Northern faction) were commonly known 
as the "Douglas Rangers." Wearing red shirts and matching 
caps, these supporters of Douglas led their party's rallies 
throughout the county. Republicans, meanwhile, formed a 
group known as the "Wide Awake Club." These "Wide Awakers," 
as they were commonly referred to, also wore a rude uniform 
of oil cloth and carried torches at night rallies.^" 

The local press also played an important role in the 

-76- 



J . :. . 1 , 



rl *r 



,r'>i' 



political campaign of 1860. Edgar County was served by only 
two newspapers during the Civil War years. The Paris Prai r ie 
Beacon was a Whig/Republican sheet started in 1848, by Jacob 
Harding. Published at Paris, this paper merged with the 
Val 1 ev Bl ade to become the Prairie Beacon and Vallev Blade 
in 1864.^^ The other local newspaper was the Paris 
Democratic Standard , also known as the Paris Times . Started 
in 1860, this Democratic paper was only published during the 
war years. It was then sold and renamed the Wabash Val 1 ev 
Times in 1865.^^ Known for its particularly strong 
Copperhead slant, the Times was repeatedly the target of 
local Union sympathizers. During the summer of 1862, the 
publishing of this paper was temporarily suspended when the 
editor and publisher were arrested for fear that remarks 
published in the paper might encourage local Copperhead 
acti vi t ies. ^"^ In early 1864, at the height of strong 
Copperhead activities in the area, it was the office of the 
Times which came under threat of attack by local Union 
soldiers. ^"^ 

Not only did Edgar Countians favor Stephen Douglas in 
1860, but also chose Democratic candidates for state and 
local offices as well. In the race for governor. Democrat 
James G. Allen carried the county by some 227 votes over 
Republican Richard Yates. ^^ In the races for congressional 
representatives, the Democratic margins of victory were 

equally as strong. In the Congressional Representative race 

-77- 



* • ^ ^ 



?i.v: J 



Republican James F. Cunningham lost in the county to 
Democrat James C. Robinson by 189 votes. ^^ Two longtime 
Edgar County natives, William P. Dole (R) and Napoleon B. 
Stage <D) squared off in the race for State Representative 
with the Democrat Stage winning in Edgar County by 132 
votes. ^'^ 

Perhaps the most interesting local race in 1860, was 
for Sheriff of Edgar County where Michael E. O'Hair (D) won 
over William B. Bailey (R) by a mere thirty-nine votes. ^^ 
Two years later Michael's son, William S. O^'Hair (D), was 
elected sheriff of Edgar County. ^^ Ironically, William-'s 
cousin (John H. O^Hair) was elected sheriff of Coles County 
at the same time. Both John and William would play major 
roles in local Copperhead act i v i t i es . •^° 

Although the county favored the Democrats in 1860, this 
did not prevent President Lincoln from choosing three Edgar 
Countians to serve in his administration. William P. Dole 
was selected to serve as Commissioner of Indian Affairs. 
Judge James Steele, a prominent Paris attorney, was chosen 
to serve as Dole's chief clerk. George W. Rives, another 
Paris native, was appointed Assessor of Internal Revenue.*^' 

Despite Edgar County's strong military contribution to 
the war effort, it remained, for the most part, a Democratic 
county. In the 1862 election for Congressman-at- 1 arge , the 
county favored Democrat James G. Allen by almost 65 percent 
of the vote.^® However, most of central Illinois also 



voted in favor of Allen. Surprisingly, Edgar County voted 
Democratic again in the 1864 Presidential Election. This 
time Democratic candidate George McClellan out-polled 
President Lincoln by 1,858 to 1,683 votes in Edgar County. ^"^ 

By 1868, the county was still voting Democratic as 
Presidential Candidate Horatio P. Seymour won the county by 
a 2,320 to 2,298 count over Republican war-hero Ulysses S. 
Grant. -^^ It was not until the 1872 Presidential Election 
that Edgar County voted in favor of someone other than a 
Democrat for the first time since 1848."^^ 

From examining the above political events, it is clear 
that Edgar County was almost evenly split between the 
Democrats and Republicans in 1860. However, the animosity 
between the two groups of immigrants and the close margins 
of Democratic victories created political tensions which 
eventually led to violence as the war progressed. Now that 
the political scene in Edgar County has been reviewed, a 
look at the Copperhead activity which plagued the county can 
be examined in more understandable terms. 

In the North, during the Civil War, those Democrats who 
refused to cooperate with President Lincoln's administration 
were commonly known as Peace Democrats, Butternuts, or 
Copperheads."^^ These Peace Democrats, or Copperheads as they 
were more commonly called, followed a course that was 
condemned by their fellow citizens as being treasonable. 

They were actively opposed to such measures as the military

draft and the imposition of military rule. These they felt 
were unconstitutional. Most, however, were sincere in their 
belief that the war was a mistake and to pursue it further 
would only ruin the country. Their slogan was "The 
Constitution as it is and the Union as it was.""^'^ Although 
many Copperheads were Confederate sympathizers, many still 
had strong ties with the Union. By hating the administration 
and its policies, and at the same time living in the Union, 
many Copperheads were put in a difficult posi t ion .'^'^ 

In 1862, the more militant of the Copperheads formed an 
organization known as the Knights of the Golden Circle. 
Later this group changed its name to The Order of American 
Knights, and finally to the Sons of Liberty. "^^ Led by the 
fiery Clement L. Vallandigham of Ohio, the Knights were 
started in Indiana and were based on a pre-war proslavery 
group prominent in the border states. By 1862, local 
chapters of this group had spread across the midwestern 
states of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois."^" To combat the 
anti-war propaganda of the Knights, Unionists organized a 
secret society of their own known as the Union League. The 
first Illinois meeting of this society was held at Pekin in 
June 1862.-^'^ 

As the Civil War progressed, organized retaliation by 
Copperhead groups became extremely serious. Gangs of 
bushwackers from Missouri, horse thieves, and deserters from 

both armies helped to swell the ranks of the Copperhead 

-80- 



groups in central and southern Illinois. ° Armed resistance 
on the part of the Copperheads became a constant fear for 
those Union men in the central part of Illinois. An increase 
in demand for guns, revolvers, and ammunition was especially 
noticed by storekeepers, whose supplies were being drained 
by local Copperheads.'^^ 

In east-central Illinois both Edgar and Coles Counties 
were the seats of especial disturbances. Most Copperheads in 
Edgar County were members of the Knights of the Golden 
Circle. As early as June, 1863, groups of Copperheads in 
Coles County were reportedly meeting for the sole purpose of 
engaging in military drill. Local tradition has it that they 
were actually stock-piling arms in anticipation of something 
bigger to come.'^^ 

The Copperhead "districts" of Coles County were 
primarily located in the northern and eastern portions of 
the county. In particular. Seven Hickory Township was the 
scene of much activity. '^^ Edgar County's Copperhead 
activities were somewhat more widespread. Embarrass Township 
seemed to be one "hotbed" of local Copperhead activity 
according to the Paris Prairie Beacon which reported in June 
1863, that "the flag still floats unmolested . . . though 
the Knights still hold meetings in this [Embarrass] 
townsh ip . " '^^ However, Symmes Township, which was the home 



81-

3^ ■) • i 



of prominent Copperhead families such as the O'Hairs, Hanks, 
Wells and Swangos, also seemed to be the location of strong 
Copperhead sentiment. '^ 

By late 1863, localized Copperhead activity in and 
around Coles and Edgar Counties had grown to serious 
proportions. In early February 1864, the growing agitation 
erupted into violence for the first time as Copperheads and 
furloughed soldiers clashed in Mattoon, Illinois in what is 
known as the "Mattoon incident." The editor of the Paris 
Times blamed the incident on Copperheads belonging to a 
subversive secret society. '^'^ 

The violent activities were not Just limited to Coles 
County as Milton York of Paris shot and seriously wounded a 
local Copperhead named Cooper in downtown Paris on February 
16. According to witnesses, York, whose father Shubal York 
was later killed in the Charleston, Illinois riot, acted in 
self-defense.'^^ Many believe that this incident was 
responsible for the death of the elder York in Charleston. 
The Yorks were well-known Republican Abolitionists, and were 
generally hated by the local Copperheads . '^^ 

As in most areas of the midwest, the Copperheads in 
Edgar County continuously threatened soldiers who were home 
on leave. The Illinois State Journal of Springfield reported 
in early March 1864, that Edgar County's Copperheads, "have 
made numerous threats against the soldiers of veteran 

regiments and have vowed to 'clean them out"" . . . these 

-82- 



n.. 



ij 3 



threats are known to the soldiers and they are on their 
guard. " ^' 

On the 22nd of February a more serious event occurred 
in Paris between soldiers of the 12th and 66th Illinois 
Infantry regiments and local Copperheads. Supposedly, the 
Copperheads, led by Amos Green, had been stock-piling arms 
in a barn in Paris. Green, who was editor and publisher of 
the Paris Times , a local Copperhead sheet, had been 
suspected of storing arms in the paper''s office as well."^® 
According to local accounts, a group of about twenty-five to 
thirty Copperheads arrived in town to take possession of the 
arms. When Union soldiers learned of this, they proceeded 
immediately to seize the "arsenal. "^^ 

Upon approaching the barn the soldiers were met by 
several Copperheads who in turn fired at them. Returning the 
fire, the soldiers wounded one Copperhead, later identified 
as Alfred Kennedy. ^^ At this time, Mark Boatman (12th 
Illinois) of Paris approached the wounded Copperhead who 
begged him not to shoot. Lowering his pistol, Kennedy shot 
Boatman in the shoulder and also succeeded in wounding 
Lemuel Trowbridge (66th Illinois) before he was cut down by 
a volley from the other soldiers. ^^ 

The Illinois State Journal reported a few days later 
that "when the shooting had started seven Copperheads (all 
well known men), rode out of Amos Green''s barn and headed 
for the country. "^^ Actually, the barn was owned by the 



■=■ J r, ~ :■; 



Tremont House Hotel of Par is. ^"^ Three days later the same 
paper reported that the Copperheads "were armed and had 
threatened to attack the town. . . [and] that three to four 
citizens have been taken prisoner by Greens men . " ^'^ 

After a second incident had occurred in Paris, Illinois 
Governor Richard Yates telegraphed Secretary of War Edwin 
Stanton for help in quelling the disturbance. In his plea 
for assistance, Yates wrote, "that they [Copperheads and 
soldiers] have had two battles, several killed."^^ Through a 
series of orders and messages. General Samuel P. 
Heintzelman, commander of the Union Army's Department of the 
Ohio, was dispatched to Paris from Columbus, Ohio. In 
addition, two companies of Invalid Corps from Chicago were 
also ordered to Paris. ^^ 

Upon his arrival in Paris, Heintzelman telegraphed 
General Henry Hal leek that he "found the town perfectly 
quiet; the account being greatly exaggerated. No one has 
been killed and but three wounded."^' Although Heintzelman 
failed to report that one Copperhead had, in fact, been 
killed, he did indicate that Governor Yates' account had 
been exaggerated. Immediatley after the incident, 
"Republican newspaper editors blamed the Edgar County 
''riots'' on members of a Copperhead secret society, calling 
the incident the 'Edgar County Insurrection.'"^" 

A few days after the incident, local papers began 

circulating stories that Edgar County Sheriff William S. 

-84- 



;■ 1 



O'Hair was involved in the affair. Supposedly, "the soldiers 
had threatened to wreck the office of the Times . but that 
editor Green apologized for his ant i -Republ i can remarks." 
According to local accounts. Sheriff William 0''Hair then 
formed a "posse comitatus," to seek revenge on the soldiers 
and it was this group which attacked the soldiers. ^'^ 

Perhaps the violence in Edgar County was an indication 
of something more serious to come. On Monday March 28, 1864, 
in Charleston, soldiers and Copperheads clashed in what is 
known as the Charleston riot. Unlike the draft riots which 
were occurring across the country, the Charleston affair was 
not a draft riot.^"-* Since the story of the riot has been 
told and re-told over the years, only a brief summary of it 
will be presented here. Even though the riot took place in 
neighboring Coles County, many of the riots participants 
were residents of Edgar County. 

Copperheads in and around Charleston decided to journey 
into town on the 28th, in hopes of confronting Union 
soldiers on leave. Many soldiers of the 54th Illinois 
Infantry Regiment from the counties of Coles and Edgar were 
in Charleston on the 28th awaiting to reassemble at Mattoon, 
Illinois. Since the 28th was also court day, many civilians 
were in town as well .^^ 

During the time that the soldiers were on furlough. 
Coles County Sheriff John H. Q-'Hair (29), a former resident 
of Edgar County, had stayed out of town to avoid any 



ILH 



.■I 



' :T 



trouble. However, 0''Hair felt that his presence on court day 
was required and he left his father's farm on Big Creek in 
southern Edgar County (Symmes Township) where he had been 
staying. ^^ He was accompanied by two of his deputies, 
Elsberry "Berry" Hanks (his cousin) and Jesse Swango, both 
of Edgar County. Later reports indicated that "Berry" Hanks 
was a Southern participant of the riot.°"^ Anticipating 
trouble, O'Hair felt it necessary to bring these two men 
along. With them were the sheriff's brothers, James and 
Henderson 0''Hair, along with John and William Frazier. All 
were well-known Copperheads of Coles and Edgar Counties. °'^ 

Also present in Charleston on the 28th were eight men 
from Edgar County who were known to be ardent Peace 
Democrats. Supposedly, these eight were traveling west to 
escape the draft and mine gold. Since they were armed, these 
men played a significant role in the outcome of the riot. 
Among the eight were Nelson and Frank Wells, Ogden and 
Nelson O'Hair, and Green Hanks. All were relatives of John 
O'Hair and lived near the O'Hair family homestead in 
southern Edgar County."^ 

By mid-afternoon the scene around the Charleston 
courthouse was buzzing with anticipation that something big 
was about to happen. As more Copperheads and soldiers came 
into town, tempers became heated as many on both sides had 
been drinking. Early in the afternoon the Democrats around 

the square were told to seek safety in the confines of the 

-86- 



courthouse until the soldiers had left town. " 

Reports differ as to how the "riot" started. Some 
reports say the soldiers provoked the fight, but no one is 
certain. Supposedly, Nelson Wells (23) and a soldier of the 
54th Illinois, Oliver Sal lee, exchanged words before both 
shot at and killed the other. Republican accounts say that 
Wells was the agressor , while Democratic reports make Wells 
an innocent victim of an unprovoked attack."' According to 
the Coles County Circuit Court Affadavits, no one is certain 
who shot whom during the fight. James D. Ellington testified 
that "he observed Henderson 0''Hair shoot Major York . " °° One 
witness, Samuel Goodrich, whose own son (Jaunes Goodrich) was 
killed, said that "his dying son told him that Nelson Wells 
shot him first before Sheriff O'Hair shot him twice more".^^ 

Almost immediately after the Wells-Sallee incident, 
shooting became widespread and before it was over nine 
people were dead and another twelve wounded. Among those 
killed were six soldiers, including Major Shubal York of 
Paris. Of the three civilians killed, two were known to be 
Copperheads. Both Nelson Wells of Edgar County and John 
Cooper of Salisbury, Illinois were shot and killed by 
soldiers of the 54th. John Jenkins, a civilian of 
Charleston, was accidently killed by a stray bullet intended 
for one of the Copperheads.''^ A list of those killed in the

As soon as the shooting started. Sheriff O'Hair rushed 
from the courthouse and joined his fellow Copperheads on the 
streets of Charleston. On his way out of the courthouse, 
O'Hair was almost gunned down by Major York, but was saved 
when York fell dead.'^ At the height of the shooting someone 
on the street reported seeing Evaline O'Hair (John''s wife) 
running towards the courthouse. Realizing that she was 
pregnant, the bystander warned her not to go up there, that 
"they are having trouble." Mrs. CHalr-'s reply was "I know 
it and Johns's in it." The same witness noticed that she was 
carrying something in her apron. Berry Hanks later said that 
the "something" was powder and caps. '^ 

Almost as soon as the riot started, it was over. The 
Copperheads now under the leadership of John O'Hair boarded 
horses and wagons and left town in an easterly direction. 
Soldiers immediatley assembled under the command of Captain 
Greenville Mitchell of the 54th Illinois (himself wounded in 
the riot) and set out in pursuit of the rioters. Throughout 
the evening and night the soldiers pursued the Copperheads, 
capturing some fifty of them. However, despite the combined 

efforts of citizens and soldiers O'Hair and the other

CO- leaders escaped capture. "^ 

As with the riot itself, reports differ as to the 
whereabouts of O'Hair and the others after the fight. In 
testimony given in the Coles County Circuit Court Just days 
after the riot, William Clapp, who Joined the group on the 
night of the 28th, said that most of the rioters had first 
assembled at Harrington^s Blacksmith Shop in northeastern 
Coles County. Clapp and the others then rode to Donica-'s 
Point, arriving at sunrise on the 29th. According to Clapp's 
testimony, John O'Hair had departed the party around 11:00 
P.M. on the 28th and thus, was not with the group when it 
arrived at Donica's Point. Clapp''s group then Journeyed 
south into Clark County staying south of Martinsville until 
Friday (April 1)."^^ 

Sheriff D'Hair and Elsberry Hanks supposedly Journeyed 
eastward into Edgar County where they spent the night at the 
farm of Adin Baber before traveling on to the home of the 
sheriffs father (John 0''Hair). Berry later told his sister, 
Mary Ellen Baber, that the two spent a couple of nights 
hiding in a ravine in back of Fred McGill's place in 
southern Edgar County. They were then taken to Bud Redmon s 
near the Par is-Grandview Road by Jonathan Ogden, their 
cousin.'^ While searching for the Copperheads, local "home 
guards" looted the rural homes of both Sheriff D'Hair and 
his father. "^^ 



89- 



Traveling north into Vermilion County O'Hair and Hanks 
boarded a train (at Fairmount) full of Union soldiers by 
accident. Calmly walking the length of the car, the two 
exited out the back door and waited for a more hospitable 
ride. '^ Eventually, O'Hair and Hanks made it to Canada where 
they stayed for some time before returning to Illinois 
toward the end of the war. Both men were never prosecuted 
for their part in the riot.'° 

As for those Copperheads captured, twenty-one were 
released after preliminary questioning. The remaining 
twenty-nine were sent to Camp Yates (Springfield) by order 
of Assistant Provost Marshal General James Oakes. After 
further questioning at Camp Yates, another thirteen were 
released. The remaining fifteen (one had died while in 
custody at Springfield) were then transferred to federal 
custody at Fort Delaware, Delaware. Here they were to await 
trial by a military court .' ^ 

In November 1864, by order of the President himself, 
these prisoners were released and returned to east-central 
Illinois. Many of the Copperheads who had participated in 
the riot were distant relatives of President Lincoln, and 
that this played a major role in his releasing them despite 
objections from many in his cabinet, ""^ The president's 
couisin (Dennis Hanks) was also instrumental in gaining the 
pardon for these men as he journeyed to Washington 

personally to talk to the President. °^ While being held at 

-90- 



-. *..:-- 



Fort Delaware, two of the prisoners were returned to Coles 
County where they stood trial for murder, but lack of any 
substantia] evidence prevented their being prosecuted. 

After the Charleston "affair", Edgar County and the 
rest of east-central Illinois was virtually untouched by any 
further Copperhead activity. It could have been that the 
magnitude of the violence in downtown Charleston was too 
much for the local agitators. Another factor could have been 
that the absence of local leaders, such as O'Hair, caused 
the movement to die off. 

Historians who have studied the Copperhead movement 
have developed several theories as to why " Copperheadi sm" 
even existed at all. Frank L. Klement writes in his The 
Copperheads in the Middlewest that, "the Republican 
constructed myths about Copperhead secret societies served 
their purposes well. It was a political apparition which 
appeared on the eve of elections.""^ Whether or not, some of 
the Copperhead activities in Coles and Edgar Counties were 
fabricated as Klement suggests remains to be proven. What is 
known, however, is that violence did result in these two 
counties as an indirect result of the animosity between 
Copperheads and loyal Union citizens. 

Another aspect of the war which affected Edgar County 
was that of desertion. In units from Illinois, the total 
number of deserters was somewhere around 13,046.°"^ Although 

no exact figure is known, historians are reasonably 

-91- 



sure that at least this many Illinois soldiers deserted the 
army. After the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. 
Lee' s Army large numbers of Union soldiers began to desert 
the army. Although many of those who deserted left the 
service as the war was winding down, some simply became 
dis- i 1 lusioned with the war and left earlier than they 
should have. 

Only fifty-three men from Edgar County are known to 
have deserted the service during the entire war.^^ Of this 
number, over half deserted during the years 1864 and 1865. 
It has been suggested that the Copperhead activity in the 
North contributed to the high rate of desertion towards the 
end of the war. In his Era of the Civil War . Arthur Cole 
writes that, "desertions were, indeed, the result of either 
advice and aid of relatives and friends, or of any anti-war 
agency. "°^ Although Coles statement may be partly true, 
there is no definite proof that Copperheads directly 
contributed to desertions. 

The fifty-three deserters from Edgar County represent 
less than 2 percent of the county's total credit of 2,312 
men. In the state, the 13,000 or so deserters represented 
about 5 percent of the total force (259,092)^^ credited to 
the state. Therefore, Edgar County had a smaller desertion 
rate than the state as a whole. 

The draft was still another aspect of the war which 

affected Edgar County. When the Civil War began in 1861, men 

-92- 



in the North rushed to enlistment centers to sign up for 
military service. However, by 1862 the glamour of enlisting 
was gone. The appearance that the war was going to be a long 
one with mounting casualty lists, hardship, and deprivation, 
caused volunteering to "fall-off" rapidly. Therefore, the 
government proposed that a draft would have to be used to 
make up the deficiencies of manpower."' 

There were four drafts held in the North during the 
Civil War. The first of these was held in the summer of 
1863. In 1864, two more drafts were needed, one in the 
spring and one in the fall. The last draft was conducted 
during the spring of 1865.°° 

When the government proposed holding a draft they also 
set up the system by wh i ch it would be conducted. Those 
overseeing the drafting and subsequent enlistment of men 
were called the draft board. °^ Sometimes referred to as the 
enrollment board, this panel consisted of three individuals. 
The president of the draft board was also the district 
provost marshal, with the other two members being the 
comissioner and the surgeon. The surgeon was also 
responsible for conducting the medical examination, and 

Of) 

thus, was to be a practicing physi c i an . '^^ 

Before a draft could be held the board was to solicit 
the district to complete an enrollment list. The districts 
were usually divided into subdistricts to make this task 

easier to complete. In cities wards served as the basis for 

-93- 



subdi str i cts while the township was usually used in rural 

91 
areas . -^ 

When the enrollment list was made, the names of those 
eligible were prepared for the draft. Usually, the actual 
drawing of the names was held in a public place where all 
could observe the procedure. Once a man''s name was called a 
notice was sent informing him that he had been selected for 
military service. The draftee then had a certain time in 
which to arrive at the enlistment center for processing and 
examination purposes. The recruit was then allowed a few 
days furlough in order to clear up any personal business 
before being sent into the field. "^ 

Sometimes draft boards were asked to draft more men 
than were needed. This was because many draftees failed to 
pass the physical examination or were exempt for some 
reason. Section Twelve of the Enrollment Act provided that 
each board should draft 50 percent more men than was needed. 
Many times this even proved to be inadequate. In July 1864, 
an amendment was passed which doubled the 50 percent figure 
to 100 percent. Consequently, twice as many names were drawn 
as actually needed. As it turned out though, they were 
usually needed. ^ 

Whether or not a draft was held in a particular state 
or congressional district depended largely on the state's 
enrollment credit up to that time. If a state or district 

was behind in its quota, then the draft was implemented to 

-94- 



■X-i 



r "j : 1 



make up the difference. In Illinois, where the lack of 
volunteering did not become a problem until 1864, there was 
no draft needed until the fall of that year . ^ 

Although a draft was held in Illinois' Seventh 
Congressional District in the fall of 1864, the number of 
men drafted from Edgar County is unknown. In July 1864, the 
county was 150 men behind in its established quota of 
1,962.^^ Chances are then at least this many men (150) were 
drafted into the service during the fall draft of 1864. In 
the subsequent draft held in the spring of 1865, the number 
of Edgar Countians is known. Table 8 lists the number

of men drafted from the various townships of the county. 

Actually a total of 408 names were drawn, with half 
being drafted and the other half held in reserve in case of 
exemptions. ^ From examining Table 8 some of the county^s 
townships must have been exempt from this draft as no names 
were drafted in Paris, Elbridge, or Symmes Townships. The 
other townships all had varying numbers of men drafted, 
ranging from one in Kansas Township to thirty-seven in 
Embarrass Township. 

At least one township tried to evade the draft of 1865 
by taking an assessment to clear it from the draft. Asa J. 
Baber of Kansas Township reported on January 22, 1865 that 
$108.50 had been collected to clear that township from the 
draft. However, this request was denied and the draft was 
applied to Kansas Township. ^^ Although it is difficult to 
determine how many of the 204 draftees were actually taken 
into the service, it is known that some 500 more men were 
credited to the county between July 1864 and the end of the 
war.^® Therefore, most of the 204 draftees probably were 
called into service. 

In summary, Edgar County was deeply effected by the 

Civil War. Not only had the county sent its finest young men 

off to fight, but local Copperhead activity, which resulted 

in violence, left deep scars in the county. Politically, the 

war did little to change the way in which the county voted. 

Despite the large number of soldiers who served from the 

-96- 



county, voters still favored the Democrats. One of the more 
significant effects that the war had upon the county was 
that it permanently took many fine men and able leaders away 
from it. Men like Shubal York. John Alexander. Sheridan 
Read, and countless others were now gone.

CONCLUSION 

In conclusion, Edgar County made a significant 
contribution to the Civil War effort. Although this 
statement is rather vague, there is no clear-cut definition 
on how to determine one county's contribution to the Civil 
War. In his book, Illinois in the Civil War . Victor Hicken 
writes that Illinois "followed only New York, Pennsylvania, 
and Ohio in total enlistments." From this statement, one 
can see that as a state Illinois contributed significantly 
to the war effort. Thus, on the average those counties in 
Illinois, including Edgar, must have made significant 
contributions as well. 

One way of showing Edgar County's contribution to the 
Civil War would be to compare its military contribution with 
that of surrounding counties and the state in general. To do 
this, the statistics for Edgar and its surrounding counties 
are shown in Table 9. The various categories used in Table 9 
are described as follows. The first category shows the total 
credit given to each county at the end of the war. The 
second category represents the quota established for each 
county. In subtracting the credit figure from the quota, the 
number of men in excess or deficit is shown in category 
three. The number of white males living in each county who 
were between the ages of fifteen and fifty in 1860 is shown 
in category four. The fifth category is the number of males 

who were eligible to serve according to the 1865 State 

-98- 



Census returns. The number of enrollments credited to each 
county as of January 1865, is shown in category six. The 
percentage of the total credit compared to the number of 
males subject to military duty is shown in category seven, 
while the last category shows the percentage of those 
enrolled in January, 1865, compared to the number of males 
ages fifteen to fifty. 

By examining Table 9 it is easy to see which 
east-central Illinois counties had contributions that were 
above or below the state average. For example, only three 
counties (Douglas, Clark, and Edgar) failed to meet their 
quotas for the entire war. The other three counties 
(Vermilion and Champaign, Coles) both exceeded their quotas. 
At the state level, the number of men in deficit far 
out-numbered those in excess. Therefore, Edgar County was 
not alone in its deficit. 

A different picture is presented when comparing the 
number of men credited with serving and those who were 
considered eligible to serve. In this category, Edgar County 
had the best percentage, of those listed, with 75 percent. 
Coles County was close behind with 71 percent. The remaining 
counties all had percentages between fifty-two and 
sixty-five. The state average was 63 percent, thus, a few 
east-central Illinois counties had better percentages than 
the state. 

The enrollment figures shown in Table 9 represents the

total number of enlistments credited to each county as of 
January 1865. Dividing this figure by the number of white 
males between fifteen and fifty, yields a percentage which 
shows how much manpower contribution each county made to the 
war effort. In this. Coles County had the best percentage 
with 95 percent. This was followed by Douglas (84%), Edgar 
(77%), Champaign (70%), Vermilion (61%), and Clark (43%). 
For the state in this category, the percentage was 60 
percent. Therefore, some east-central Illinois counties 
greatly exceeded the state average. 

A comparison of each county's manpower contribution is 
another way of determining how well that particular county 
contributed to the war effort. In ranking all 102 counties 
of Illinois in this category, it was found that Edgar County 
ranked twentieth with its 75 percent. Thus, in terms of men 
serving compared to men eligible, Edgar County exceeded over 
80 percent of all other Illinois counties. 

Another way of determining Edgar County's contribution 
to the war effort would be to examine the war record of 
those companies and regiments which were comprised of the 
county's men. By including the regimental histories of those 
principle Edgar County regiments in this paper, this author 
has attempted to do this. However as mentioned before, 
rating the war record of a Civil War unit is sometimes based 
on a purely personal judgement. That is, just because one 

unit reported a large number of casualties does not mean 

-101- 



that its contribution to the total war effort was that 
outstanding. This same unit could have had an equally high 
number of deserters. Thus, this author will make no attempt 
to rate the war records of those units discussed in this 
paper . 

Still another way of rating Edgar's contribution to the 
war effort would be to look at the county's casualty rate as 
a percentage of those serving. In this, Edgar County's 
seventy soldiers killed in action represented only 3 percent 
of the county's total credit. For the state, approximately 
4.3 percent of the total credited force was killed in 
action.^ Thus, Edgar County had a smaller casualty 
percentage than the state in general 

From comparing the above statistics, along with the 
material previously discussed, this author has tried to 
provide readers with a better picture of Edgar County's 
contribution to the Civil War. Despite the Copperhead 
trouble at home, the county still provided over 3,000 men to 
the war effort out of just over 4,000 males who were of 
military age. Thus, in comparing Edgar with its surrounding 
counties and the state in general, it has been shown that 
the county's overall contribution was significant in more 
ways than one.

NOTES ON THE APPENDIX 

The following appendix represents the most complete 
listing of Civil War volunteers from Edgar County. Through 
the use of census records, county histories, regimental 
histories. Adjutant General reports, and muster rolls, every 
effort was made to locate all 2,312 men credited with 
serving from Edgar County. Although not all were found, this 
listing contains many names not found in previous sources. 

The listing contains the individual's name, residnece 
(if known), rank, unit/company, and any remarks about the 
individual. These include such things as whether the 
volunteer was killed, died, mustered out, discharged, or 
transferred. A dash appearing in the remarks column means 
that no information on that individual was located. Many of 
those listed sometimes were enrolled in two or more 
different regiments. In cases such as this only the last 
known regiment has been listed. A list of abbreviations used 
in the appendix precedes the actual list.

A NOTE ON SOURCES 

In researching this paper many types of sources were 
consulted. Perhaps the most widely used source was that of 
the Illinois Adjutant General's Report . This major source of 
information was used as the basis for the regimental 
histories contained in this paper. To supplement these 
histories with casualty figures, etc. such sources as Fox's 
Regimental Losses in the American Civil War , and Moses' 
Illinois Historical and Statistical were used. 

In the chapter dealing with Edgar County on the 
battlefield, several different sources were used. Included 
were the Official Records of the Union and Confederate 
Armj.es, McDonoughs Stones River; Bloody Winter in 
Tennessee , and Battles and Leaders of the Civil War . In 
researching the demographic statistics used in writing the 
first chapter many primary sources were used. These included 
the various census records available for Edgar County. In 
addition, the 1879 History of Edgar County (Perrin), and 
Bateman's Historical Encyclopedia of Illinois and History of 
Edgar County were also consulted. 

In the chapter dealing with Copperheads and the 
political background of the county more types of sources 
were used. These included actual 1860 election returns for 
Edgar County, as well as Burnham' s Presidential Ballots. 
1836-1872 . Charles Coleman and Paul Spence s "The 

-155- 



Charleston Riot" was used extensivley for material dealing 
with local Copperhead activity. For a much broader picture 
of the Copperhead movement Frank L. Klemenfs The 
Copperheads in the Middlewest was used. 

Perhaps the biggest drawback to researching this paper 
was the almost complete lack of any newspapers from the time 
period. Supposedly, a fire in the 1940s destroyed most 
earlier Paris newspaper holdings. Fortunately, a few 
newspapers have survived but, one can only wonder what 
wealth of information might have been found if more were 
available. Also there seems to be a lack of substantial 
manuscripts available on Edgar Countians who served in the 
war. Such items as diaries are non-existent.
