INTRODUCTION 

The role of Illinois in the Civil War was a proud and impres- 
sive one. The most famous representatives of the State of Illinois 
in the Great Conflict were President Abraham Lincoln, General 
Ulysses S. Grant, and United States Senator Stephen A. Douglas. 
This report is about the 256,297 less well-known men from Illinois 
who fought for state and country on the field of battle from 1861 to 
1865. The information in this report has been compiled in response 
to the many inquiries from school children, Civil War students, and 
others concerning Illinois' military contributions to the Civil War. 

The first section is a county list, showing (1) the number of 
men from each county who went to war (e.g. Adams - 5,173 ; Cook - 
22,436) and (2) the infantry, cavalry, and artillery companies in 
which these men served. 

Illinois' infantry, cavalry, and artillery units in the Civil War 
are described in the second and largest section of this report. A 
regiment in the Civil War was not at all like the regiment we know 
today: the maximum size of an infantry regiment was 1,025 officers 
and men; the minimum that would be accepted was 845. A regi- 
ment had 10 companies, each with 82 privates, 1 waggoner, 2 musi- 
cians, 8 corporals, 4 sergeants, 1 first sergeant, 1 second lieutenant, 
1 first lieutenant, and 1 captain. The regiment staff contained 2 
principal musicians, 1 hospital steward, 1 commissary sergeant, 1 
quartermaster sergeant, 1 sergeant major, 1 chaplain, 2 assistant 
surgeons, 1 surgeon (ranked as a major), 1 quartermaster, 1 ad- 
jutant, 1 major, 1 lieutenant colonel, and 1 colonel. Each of the 10 
companies had 101 men and the staff consisted of 15 men. 

Cavalry regiments generally totaled 1,200 men or 12 compan- 
ies of 100 men each. Light artillery was composed of batteries with 
a maximum strength of 150 men and 6 guns, although usually there 
were only 4 guns to a battery. Twelve batteries, or a minimum of 
48 guns, generally formed a regiment; batteries ordinarily acted as 
independent commands. 

Information about each Illinois infantry, cavalry, and artil- 
lery unit includes its nickname, if any; muster-in and muster-out 
dates; remarks concerning consolidation or transfer; and a list of 
lettered companies and batteries with county of origin and nick- 
name. 

Note that the numbering of infantry regiments begins with the 
7th Illinois Infantry. There were no regiments 1-6 in the Civil 
War, out of respect for the six units which Illinois sent to the 



Mexican War. The 7th through 12th Illinois Infantry regiments 
were twice enrolled, first for three months, and then for three years. 
The county of origin of the three -month company is given in par- 
entheses when it differs from that of the three-year company. Most 
other infantry units were mustered into service for three years; in 
the years 1863-1864, however, the governors of Illinois, Iowa, In- 
diana, and Ohio offered the government 85,000 men to serve for 
100 days on guard duty and within fortifications in territory cap- 
tured from the Confederacy. Illinois infantry regiments 132-143 
and 145 were 100-day troops. 

The final section of this study is an alphabetical listing of pop- 
ular names of Illinois military units. In most instances these nick- 
names indicate the area of the unit's organization (Adams County 
Cavalry), its professional or ethnic character (Preacher Regiment; 
Scotch Regiment), or its commanding officer (Henshaw's Battery). 

The Civil War Centennial Commission of Illinois hopes that this 
survey of Illinois' military contributions to the Civil War will be of 
interest and value. More detailed information such as company ros- 
ters and regimental histories is given in the eight-volume Report of 
the Adjutant General of Illinois (Springfield, 1900), now out of print 
but available in most public libraries in Illinois.
