INTRODUCTORY. 



Although many years have elapsed since the close of the Mexican 
Wai 1 , and a much greater period of time since the Black Hawk War, 
the archives in the Adjutant-General's ollice have shown no record of 
the services of our soldiers in either of these wars. In fact, excepting 
the meagre and occasional rolls of the militia and riflemen, deposited by 
Governor Edwards' heirs some years ago, there has been until quite a 
recent date no record of the service of any Illinois soldiers in this office 
prior to the late War of the Rebellion. The organization of the society 
of the "Veterans of the Mexican, Black Hawk and Florida wars," in 
1874, revived an interest in this subject, and the members have, at their 
annual reunions since that date, agitated the subject with more or less 
effect, until they have, no doubt, largely aided in securing their demands 
in the present publication. In 1877, Hon. Cornelius Rourkc, a mem- 
ber of the House of Representatives, from Menard county, offered a bill 
to authorize the Governor to employ a clerk to transcribe these records 
from the official rolls of 'the War Department. This, however, did not 
become a law. This bill was, no doubt, offered in response to the action 
of the "Mexican War Veteran Association," which, at the September 
meeting previous, held at Springfield, had passed the following resolu- 
tion: 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the Mexican War Veterans, now in session at the 
State capital, that a commission should be appointed by the next Legislature of 
Illinois, with instructions to procure from the archives at Washington, D. C., all In- 
formation, statistical and otherwise, relative to the operations of the troops from 
Illinois, and that said information be placed on file in the Adjutant-General's office 
in this State.- 

The Legislature, in 1879, added to the general appropriation bill a 
section authorizing the Governor to appoint a clerk to go to Washing- 
.ton and transcribe all the records, of both volunteer and regular soldiers 
from Illinois, in the Black Hawk or Mexican wars, and appropriated 
the sum of five hundred dollars for the purpose. (Laws 1879, p. 30.) 
In pursuance of this fact, Governor Cullom appointed Col. Ferris Fore- 
man, of Vandalia, late the Colonel of Third Regiment Illinois volun- 
teers, and the only suriviving Colonel of the Mexican War, to that duty. 
Col. Foreman proceeded to Washington, and in his report to the Gov- 
ernor, under date of December 16, 1879, states that he was denied the 
privilege of access to the records by the Adjutant-General, under the 
standing orders and regulations of the War Department, and reported 
that it would be necessary to have a resolution passed by Congress be- 
fore access could be had to the rolls on file in the War Department. 
After the Hon. Robert T. Lincoln became Secretary of War, Governor 
Cullom, who has always taken an active interest in the effort to ob- 
tain these records for the State, visited him in Washington, and on the 
personal solicitation of the Governor, Secretary Lincoln was induced 
to cause these rolls to be transcribed by clerks in the War Department, 
and correct copies of all such have heen furnished ]>y him to this office, 
and are published complete in this book. 



X INTRODUCTORY. 

The section of the appropriation bill passed in 1881, which author- 
izes this publication, was drawn up and offered by the Hon. Samuel H. 
Martin, a member of the Thirty-second General Assembly from White 
county, himself a Lieutenant in the Fourteenth United States Infantry 
during the Mexican War, and to whose efforts, as well as to the efforts 
of the Honorable Secretary of War and His Excellency the Governor, 
the merit of obtaining and publishing these records is largely due. 

Before commencing the preparation of this publication, an adver- 
tisement was inserted in all the leading newspapers of the State, re- 
questing all persons in possession of facts or any data concerning the 
service of the Illinois soldiers in the Black Hawk and the Mexican wars, 
to communicate the same to this office. Quite a general response 
was made to this request by the surviving veterans of both wars, and 
much intersting and valuable material has been thus accumulated in 
this office, the larger portion of which cannot, of course, be used in 
the limits of a publication like the present. The thanks, however, of this 
office are due to those who so kindly responded to our request, and their 
communications have all been carefully preserved among the files of this 
office for future historical reference, and will make a fund of valuable 
military information for the vise of the historian of the future. 

Believing the intention of the General Assembly mainly met in the 
publication of the complete rosters, the briefest possible introductory 
sketch is made of the prominent facts of the Black Hawk war, which 
is compiled from Edward' History of the State of Illinois, and other 
trustworthy sources, including the correspondence before mentioned. 
This is followed by a short historical sketch of the part taken by the 
various commands of Illinois volunteers in the Mexican war, in which 
is included any honorable mention made of Illinois soldiers as shown 
by excerpts from the official reports and orders of the various Generals 
under whom they served, so far as the same appear in the official re- 
ports of these officers to the War Department at Washington. It is 
of course not intended to give an extended view of the operations of 
the war, therefore our memoranda is scrupulously confined to the actual 
service of our volunteers, and presents only such data as has been de- 
rived from official and other reliable sources, which is considered nec- 
essary to make intellegible the official rosters, and which we hope, when 
taken in connection with them, will make an enduring and reliable mem- 
orial of their >< rvices, thus more than fulfilling the wish of the Gen- 
erally Assembly, who have neither appropriated for, nor expected the 
publication of, little else than the records as received from the War 
Department. Although this publication as it now stands is incom- 
plete, particularly in the matter of the records of service in the Winne- 
bago war, and the first campaign of the Black Hawk war, every effort 
has been made to obtain the desired information, both by correspon- 
dence with individuals and the War Department, and the work as pre- 
sented gives the final result of the best etl'orls of this oflice in meet the 
expectations of the General Assembly. 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. 



THE BLACK HAWK WAR. 

The rolls furnished 'from the War Department, and published in 
this volume, although by no means complete, show that the State of 
Illinois furnished one hundred and seventy-four companies of volun- 
teer rangers and spies, which were actually mustered into the service 
of the United States for various periods of time, during the Black 
Hawk War. This, of course, does not include large numbers of the 
State militia, who were under arms, and performed servies of greater 
or less importance, and whose names will remain forever unknown, 
many of whom were never actually mustered by any United States 
military officer, nor have any rolls or other account of their service been 
preserved. 

That the public may understand the service of these companies, and 
the part performd by them in that most important of any of the Indian 
wars of the West, we give a brief sketch of the causes which led to, and 
the principal events which occurred in, the Black Hawk War. The 
causes which led to that war reach back to, and even before, the Wirme- 
bago or Sank War -of 1827, and are. as briefly stated by Edwards,iii his 
History of Illinois, as follows: 

"During Governor Edwards' administraion, as Executive of the State, the Indians 
upon the Northwestern frontier began to be very troublesome. The different tribes 
not only commenced a warfare among themselves, in regard to their respective 
boundaries, but they extended their hostilities to the white settlements. A treaty of 
peace, In which the whites acted more as mediators than as a party, had been signed 
at Prairie du Chien, on the 19th day of August, 1825, by the terms of which the 
boundaries between the Winnebagos and Sioux, Chippawas, Sauks, Foxes, and other 
tribes, were defined, but it failed to keep 'them quiet. Their depredations and murders 
continued frequent, and in the summer of 1S27 their conduct, particularly that of the 
Winnebagos, became very alarming. 

There is no doubt, however, that tho whites, who at this period were immigrating 
in large numbers to the Northwest, and earnestly desired their removal further west- 
ward, purposely exasperated the Indians, at the same time that they greatly exagger- 
ated the hostilities committed." (Edwards' Hist. p. 218.) 

A combination was soon formed by the diH'ereiit tribes of Indians un- 
der Red Bird, a chief of the Sioux, to kill or drive off all the whites 
above Rock river. This league, which included the Winnebagoes, Pot- 
tawotamie>. and other tribes of the Xorthwest, commenced their offen- 
sive operations by killing two white men in the vicinity of Prairie 
du Chien, on the 24th day of July, 1827, and on the ,'JOtli of the same 
month they attacked two returning keel boats which had, on their 



XII BLACK IIA\VK WAI!. 

ii|>\vard trip, conveyed military stores to Fort Snelling, killing two of 
the crew and wounding four other;-. In- fore they were repulsed. Gov- 
ernor Edwards, anticipating trobule, had, on the 14th day of July, 
issued an order to the commandants in Gen. Hanson's brigade, (lo- 
cated on the east side of the Illinois river), to detach one-fourth of 
their respective regiments, and he ready to meet any attack made by the 
Indians. On the same day he wrote to Col. Thomas M. Xeale, of the 
Twentieth Regiment (from Sangamon county), to accept six hundred 
volunteers, who were to equip themselves, find their own subsistence, 
and continue in service thirty days, unless sooner discharged; to ren- 
dexvous the same at Fort Clark, and march with all possible expedi- 
tion from there to Galena, to the assistance of the whites, as the Indians 
had threatned the settlers at the lead mines, near that place. The pos- 
session of these mines by the whites had always excited the serious 
jealousy of the Indians. 

Under this call Col. Xeale recruited one cavalry company, whieh was 
commanded by Capt. Edward Mitchell, and four companies of infantry, 
commanded, respectively, by Captains Thomas Constant, Reuben Brown, 
Achiles Morris and Bowlin Green. The whole force under command 
of Col. Xeale, (the other field officers are unknown except James D. 
Henry Sheriff at the time of Sangamon County Adjutant), marched 
to Peoria, where the regiment was more fully organized, and from 
thence to Galena. Before their arrival, however, in the Indian country 
Red Bird and six of his principal warriors had surrendered, and the 
campaign being ended the volunteers returned to their homes. Xo 
rolls of these companies have been obtained, and if they were mustered 
into the United States service at all, the rolls were either never re- 
turned to the department, or have been mislaid. 

While Col. Xeale was recruiting and marching his regiment to Ga- 
lena, the settlers there were not idle. A committee of safety had been 
formed and temporary defences were erected, and in pursuance of au 
order from Governor Edwards the miners were formed into companies 
and equipped for action, (the rolls of only one company of these militia 
have been furnished us, -Capt. James M. Strode's, page 187.) These 
militia were placed under the immediate command of Gen. Henry 
Dodge, and formed an auxiliary force to the command of Brig.-Geii. 
Henry Atkinson, IT. S. A., whose force consisted of six hundred regu- 
lars. Before the arrival of Col. Xeale, these forces combining under 
(ien. Atkinson, marched into the Winnebago country and captured 
Red Bird, who, it appears by a letter of Gen. Street to Governor Ed- 
wards, voluntarily surrendered himself to the whites, coming into camp 
displaying a white flag. With Red Bird there also surrendered them- 
selves six other Indians, including Black Hawk, who had not yet become 
famous. These Indians were retained in captivity several months, Red 
Bird dying during confinement; and some of them having been tried

and convicted of complicity in the murder of white settlers, were 
executed on the 26th day of December, 1827. Black Hawk, against 
whom nothing could be proven, was acquitted, but it is alleged afterwards 
acknowledged his guilt and boasted of his connection with the murders 
for which he had been tried. \Yith the death of Keel Bird ended the 
\Vinnebago war. The tribe sinned to be thoroughly humbled by the 
result of the campaign, and although fears of further hostilities from 
1 linn were for some time after entertained, they continued peaceable. 
In regard to the lands about which the difficulty originated, until the 
question of ownership could be adjusted amicably, they promised to 
keep away from the mines entisely, Gen. Atkinson promising them 
that "the next summer persons would come from their Great Father 
to consult with them about the matter." 

"A talk was subsequently had with them in which they abandoned all 
the country south of the Wisconsin river. After this there was a general 
peace with the Indians throughout the western frontier.' (Edwards' 
His. p. 224.) In the meantime Governor Edwards did not cease his 
efforts to urge on the War Department the necessity _of the entire re- 
moval of the Indians from the State, their presence being a constant 
menace, and their continued residence on lands which they had ceded 
being dangerous to the peace of the white settlers, who were constantly 
increasing in numbers, and whose animals the Indians did not hesitate 
to appropriate whenever opportunity offered. In October the Secre- 
tary of War informed the Governor that Governor Cass had been in- 
structed to "take measures with regard to the removal of the Indians.'' 
But delays having occurred, and the Indians still remaining, on the 
25th day of May, 1828, Governor Edwards wrote to Gen. Clark urging 
'immediate action on the part of the Government. This he followed 
by a letter addressed to the Secretary of War, dated June 17th, in 
which he stated: "This grievance still continuing, and aggravated as 
it is by recent occurrences of which I am bound to presume you are 
informed, I feel, it my duty to ask you what further in regard to this 
matter may be expected from the General Government/ (Edwards' 
Hist. p. 22(i.) 

Upon the urgent request of the Indians, and notwithstanding the 
earnest protest of the Governor (Edwards), twelve months additional 
time was given them in which to remove from the State. With regard 
to this delay and in a spirit of protest against the action of the Gov- 
ernment in the premises, Governor Edwards wrote den. Clark, Indian, 
agent at St. Louis, a letter, in. the conclusion of which he used the fol- 
lowing significant language: "If any act of hostility shall be com- 
mitted on the frontiers, I will not hesitate to remove them on my own 
responsibility as Governor of the State." 



XIV BLACK HAWK WAR. 

As to the subsequent history of the causes which finally led to this 
outbreak, Edwards says : 

About this time (1829) the President issued his proclamation, according to law, and, 
in pursuance thereof, all the country above the mouth of Rock River (the ancient seat 
of the Sauk nation) was sold to American families, and in the year following it was 
taken possession of by them. To avoid difficulty with the tribes another treaty, con- 
firming previous ones, was made with the Sacs and Foxes, on the 15th of July, 1830, 
by the provisions of which they were to remove peacefully from the Illinois country. 
A portion of the Sacs, with their principal chief, Keokuk, at their head, quietly retired 
across the Mississippi. With those who remained in the village, at the mouth of 
Rock River, an arrangement was made by the Americans who had purchased the 
land, by which they were to live together as neighbors, the Indians still cultivating 
their old fields as formerly. Black Hawk, however, a restless and uneasy spirit, who 
had ceased to recognize Keokuk as chief, and who was known to be still under the 
pay of the British, emphaticallly refused either to remove from the lands or to 
respect the rights of the Americans to them. He insisted laat Keokuk had no authority 
for making such a treaty, and he proceeded to gather around him a large number of 
the warriors and young men of the tribe, who were anxious to distinguish themselves 
as "braves," and, placing himself at their head, he determined to dispute with the 
whites the possession of the ancient seat of his nation. He had conceived the gigantic 
scheme, as appears by his own admissions, of uniting all the Indians, from the Rock 
River to the Gulf of Mexico, in a war against the United States, and he made use of 
every pretext for gaining accessions to his party. 

In the meantime, on the 9th day of December, 1830, the Hon. John 
Reynolds had been elected Governor of the State. 

In pursuance of his declared intention of regaining possession of the 
ancient hunting grounds and the principal village of his tribe, in the 
month of April, 1831, Black Hawk recrossed the river, at the head of 
a force variously estimated at from three to five hundred braves of his 
own tribe, with from one to two hundred allies of the Pottawotamies 
and Kickapoos, bringing with them his women and children, with the 
avowed purpose of remaining. 

Black Hawk immediately notified the -whites that they must depart 
from the village, and they refusing to comply, their property was de- 
stroyed, and they suffered in person various indignities at the hands 
of the Indians. On the 30th of April, forty of these settlers sent a pe- 
tition to Governor Reynolds, setting forth their grievances, and asking 
relief. Governor Reynolds, thus informed of the state of Affairs, and 
believing that Black Hawk and his band were determined to retain 
possession of the country by force, resolved to effect their expulsion. 
A call was therefore made for volunteers (May 27, 1831), and when 
it became known, the whole nothwestern part of the State resounded 
with the clamor of war. Xo county south of St. Clair nor east of Sanga- 
mon was included in the call, which was limited to seven hundred men, 
who were to report within fifteen days' time, mounted and equipped, 
at the place of rendezvous, which was fixed at Beardstown, on the 
Illinois river. More than twice the number of men called for responded, 
and the Governor, finding so many willing and ready to go, decided to 
accept the services of the whole 1,600 men. They were moved to 
a camp two miles north of Rushville. and there organized into two 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XV 

regiments, ' and two battalions. One of the regiments elected James 
D. Henry, of Sagamon county, Colonel,*and the other elected Daniel 
Lieb, while Major Nathaniel Buckmaster was elected to command 
the "Odd Battalion." Major Samuel Whitesides was appointed by the 
Governor to the command of the "Spy Battalion," and the whole bri- 
gade was placed under the command of Hon. Joseph Duncan, then the 
member in Congress, and afterward Governor of the State, who was 
commissioned by Governor Reynolds as Brigadier " General of militia. 
Colonels Enoch C. Marsh and Samuel C. Christy were appointed quar 
termasters, while the Governor himself accompanied the expedition in 
his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the militia of the State. They 
immediately (June loth, 1831), took up their march from camp 
near Bushville to Eock river, where they arrived on the 25th of June. 
Six companies of regular troops, which had been dispatched from 
Jefferson Barracks, under the command of Gen. Gaines, had arrived 
at Fort Armstrong a few days before, and had already had an unsatis- 
factory conference with Black Hawk, who declined to return across 
the river. Gen. Gaines met Governor Eeynolds and his force at their 
encampment on the Mississippi, eight miles below the old Sac village, 
and after receiving the volunteers into the United States service, Gens. 
Gaines and Duncan concerted measures of attack. But the wily Black 
Hawk, no doubt well apprised of the number of the force which was 
ready to attack him, concluded not to risk an engagement, but on the 
night of the 25th had quietly recrossed the river, leaving his deserted 
camp and village to be peaceably taken possession of by the forces of 
the opposing Generals on the following morning. Out of vengeance, 
no doubt,- for their disappointment at the escape of the Indians, and 
to remove future cause of dispute, the soldiers destroyed the village 
entirely by fire. As Governor Ford says in his history, "Thus perished 
this ancient village, which had been the delightful home of (j,000 to 
7,000 Indians, where generation after generation had been born, had 
died and been buried." Gen. Gaines sent an order to Black Hawk re- 
quiring him and his band to return and enter into a treaty., They 
refusing to respond to" the first invitation, a second and more peremp- 
iorv mandate had the desired effect, and on the 30th day of June, 1831, 
Black Hawk and about thirty chiefs of the Sacs came, and in full council 
with Governor Eeynolds and Gen. Gaines, signed an agreement, in 
which the}' agreed, among other things, that "no one or more shall ever 
be permitted to recross said river, to the usual place of residence, nor 
any part of their old hunting grounds east of the Mississippi, without 
permission of the President of the United States, or the Governor of 
the State of Illinois." The volunteer troops were then disbanded, 
and returned to their homes, while the subsistence gathered for their

sustenance, was from time to time givn by Gens, (iaincs and the kind- 
hearted Governor to the Indian?-, who had, by their foolish invasion, 
rendered it impossible to raise any crop for that season, it beiiiLr too 
late to plant any crop after the war had closed. Thus ended with- 
out bloodshed the first campaign of the Black Hawk war. Of the forces 
engaged therein, there are but the rolls of two companies, published 
herein, Capt. Solomon Miller's, from St. Clair county, and Capt. Wil- 
liam Moore's, of the same county, both in Maj. Buck-master's "Odd 
Battalion." (See pages 188, 190.') 

18o - 3 SK( OXD CAMPAIGN". 

Notwithstanding the treaty, the trouble was not yet ended. In the 
spring of 1832 Black Hawk recrossed the Mississippi (April (!th) and 
commenced his march up Rock River Valley, accompanied by about 
five hundred warriors on horseback, while his women and children 
went up the river in their canoes. Gen. Atkinson, then stationed at 
Fort Armstrong, warned him against this agirre.-sion and ordered him 
to return, but this they refused to do, and went forward to the country 
of the Winnebagoes, wkh whom Black Hawk made arrangements to 
make a crop of corn, which reason he alleged to be the cause of the 
expedition. The Winnebagoes and Pottawotamies, however, both re- 
fused to yield to his solicitations to join him in a war against the whites. 

On being informed of the movements of Black Hawk, Governor 
Reynolds (April 16th) called for a thousand mounted volunteers, from 
the central and southern parts of the State, to rendezvous at Beards- 
town, on the 22A of the same month. Daily accounts of the opera- 
tions of the Indians were received. Judge Young, Col. Strode and 
Benjamin Mills wrote the Governor, urging speedy protection of the 
frontiers, as the inhabitants were in great danger. On receipt of 
this intelligence two hundred men (see pp. 151-4), under Major 
Stillman, were ordered to guard the frontier near the Mississippi, and 
two hundred (see Col. Johnson's regiment), under Major Bailey, tin- 
frontier between the Mississippi and the settlements on the lllionis. 
Such was the threatening aspect of affairs, that the call was extended 
to every part of the State. Tn the meantime eighteen hundred men 
had met at Beardstown, and were organized into a brigade of four 
regiments and an "odd" and a "spy" battalion. An election (April 
28) for field officers, resulted in the election of Col. John Thomas to 
command the First Regiment, Col. Jacob Fry the Second Regiment. 
Col. Abram B. DeWitt the Third Regiment, Col. Samuel M. Thomp-

son the Fourth Regiment* (in this regiment \vas Capt. Abraham Lin- 
coln'st c-ompany p. 100), while Major James D. Henry, of Sanga- 
mon county, was elected to command the Spy Battalion (p. 106), in 
which Captains John Dawson, Thomas Carlin and John Dement com- 
manded the companies, and Major Thomas James to the command 
of the "Odd" Battalion (page 110). A part of the "Odd Battalion un- 
der Maj. Long, consisting of the companies commanded by Capt. Jacob 
Kby and Capt. Japhet A. Ball, both from Sangamon county, was "de- 
tached for foot purposes." Eight companies, not attached to any reg- 
iment (pp. 11(5-122), also served in this brigade. Governor Reynolds, 
who also accompanied the expedition, placed Brigadier Gen. White- 
side in the immediate command, while Cols. March and Christy, the 
efficient quartermasters in the campaign of 1831, were relied on to 
gat her the supplies for the present campaign. William Thomas was 
apointcd Brigade Quartermaster, while Capts. James B. Stapp and 
Joseph M. Chadwick were appointed to the general staff. Maj. James 
Turney, paymaster; Vital Jarrot, of St. Clair county, adjutant gen- 
eral, and Cyrus Edwards, ordnance officer, were appointed to their 
positions on the staff of the Commander-in-Chief. 

On the 29th day of April, the army left camp near Beardstown and 
marched to the Mississippi river, at or near the present town of Oquawka. 
On arriving at that place, and some delay occurring in the receipt of 
supplies, messengers were dispatched to Gen. Atkinson, at Fort Arm- 
strog, who sent a boat laoded with provisions to the troops. 

*George Carpenter, Esq., of Springfield, furnishes to us the commission of his 
father, the late Major Carpenter, as paymaster of this regiment, a copy of which 
we give: 

"I do hereby certify that William Carpenter is duly appointed Paymaster in the 
Fourth Regiment on the detachment of mounted volunteers, called Into the service of 
the United States. He is therefore required diligently and carefully to discharge the 
duties of said office. Given under my hand this 30th day of April, 1832. 

"SAMUEL THOMPSON, Colonel Fourth Regiment Volunteers." 

tWilliam L. Wilson, who \v;is n private in Capt. M. G. Wilson's Company, of 
Thompson's regiment, of Whitesides' Brigade, writes to this office from Rushville. 
ruder date of February 3, 18S2, and after detailing some interesting reminiscences of 
Stillmau's defeat, says: "I have during that time had much fun -with the after- 
wards President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. I remember one time of 
wrestling with him, two best in three, and ditched him. He was not satisfied, and 
we tried it in a foot-race, for a five dollar bill. I won the money and 'tis spent long 
ago. And many more reminiscences could I give, but am of the Quaker persuasion 
and not much given to writing." 

The following discharge paper was found among the papers of the late Col. Wm. 
Carpenter, formerly Paymaster of Col. Thompson's regiment. The blank was filled in 
the handwriting of Captain Lincoln:

XVIII BLACK J1AVVK WAI!. 

From here they marched up the river to the mouth of Rock river, 
where they were all received into the United Stales service by Gen. 
Atkinson. From this point the commanding general proceeded up 
the Rock river on a steamer, accompanied by a force of 400 regular? 
and an armanent of cannon, while the volunteers under Gen. White- 
ride marched through the swamps in the vicinity of the stream. They 
moved up Rock river without encountering savages until they arrived 
at the town of Dixon, on the evening of the 10th of May, where they 
found Majors Stillman and Bailey, who were at this place with their 
forces where they had been directed to remain in their duty of protecting 
the frontier. Gen. Atkinson then sent out a scouting party of five 
men to confer with the chiefs of the Pottawotamies, and who, after 
getting lost, returned the third day afterward, reporting to have fallen 
in with some of Black Hawk's men who were encamped on a small 
stream known as Old Man's Creek, twelve miles above Dixon. Majors 
Stillman and Bailey having done but little service, besought the Gov- 
ernor to grant them the privilege of reconnoitering the enemy. There- 
upon Governor Reynolds issued to them the following order: "Major 
Stillman : You will cause the troops under your immediate command, 
and the battalion under Major Bailey, to proceed without delay to the 
head of Old Man's Creek, where it is supposed there are some hostile 
Indians and coerce them into submission." On the following morn- 
ing, May 14, 1835), they started with 275 men (Stillman's Brigade. 
See page 151, for rolls of Bailey's command, afterward Fifth Regiment, 
pp. 102-5), and reached the Old Man's Creek without adventure, piir-

suing their course up that stream some fifteen miles, to Sycamore 
Creek. They dismounted for the purpose of passing the night. While 
engaged in camp duties, three Indians, bearing a white flag, came into 
camp, and were taken, into custody. These were soon followed by five 
more, who came near the camp, no doubt with the purpose of inviting 
an attack. In this they succeeded, and a party of Stillman's men im- 
mediately started in pursuit, while others followed as soon as they could 
mount, and soon three-fourths of the command had joined in an irregu- 
lar chase across the prairie. The soldiers overtook and killed two of 
the Indians, and pursued the others to the edge of the forest. At this 
juncture Black Hawk, with about forty of his men, arose from an am- 
bush, and with terrific yells charged on the assailants, who, in their turn, 
retreated in hot haste, followed by the infuriated savages. The fearful 
din caused by the retreating soldiers and their pursuers caused a stam- 
]>i'i|. in the remainder of the force of the camp, and they all fled, in an 
inglorious panic, and in spite of the elforts of Major Stillman and 
others to rally them, the retreat was continued until they all reached 
the main force at Dixon. Major Perkins and Captain Adams, of Taze- 
well County, with abput fifteen men, made a stand in which they some- 
what checked the Indians, and thus saved the lives of many of the 
fugitives, who would otherwise have fallen victims to their pursuers. 
This rally cost the brave Adams his life, his body being found the next 
day near the dead bodies of two of the savages, whom he had un- 
doubtedly slain before he himself was killed. As a result of the fight, 
eleven whites and seven Indians were killed, besides many wounded 
on both sides. 

During the night of the battle, known since as "Stillman's Run," 
Governor Reynolds made a requisition for 2,000 men to be in readi- 
ness for future operations, while the unmost consternation spread 
throughout the State and Xation. Exaggerated reports of the num- 
bers of the Indians, and the skill, ability, cunning and cruelty of Black 
Hawk, added much to the general alarm. 

General Scott, with 1,0000 United States troops, was immediately 
ordered to the Northwest, to superintendent the future operations of 
the campaign. 

When the news of Stillman's defeat reached the camp at Dixon, 
a council of war was held, and it was determined to return immedi- 
ately to the battle field. 

The next morning, after obtaining ten oxen from Col. John Dixon, 
\vhich were slaughtered and issued to the men, without bread or salt, 
the whole force marched to the scene of the encounter. The dead 
were recovered, in most instances frightfully mutilated, and the frag- 
ments gathered together and buried; but although Major Henry and 
his men effectually scoured the surrounding countrv for miles in 



XX RLACK HAWK WAR. 

every direction, the enemy could not be found, and the whole force fell 
back to Dixon. 

The new levies, under the call of Gov. Reynolds, were to meet, some 
on the 3d of June, at Beardstown, and the others on the 10th of the 
same month at Hennepin. 

The men first recruited, now asked to be discharged, but the Gov- 
ernor appealing to their patriotism, they agreed to remain from 12 to 
15 days longer, and the companies under Bailey (Covell's, McClure's 
Pugli's and Adams'), with Stillman's battalion, (Captains Eads', 
Barnes' and Ball's companies) were organiezd into a regiment, known 
as the Fifth Regiment of Whiteside's Brigade, under Colonel James 
Johnson, and received into the service of the United States, and one part 
ordered to Ottawa, for the defense of that place, while the other re- 
mained at Dixon to guard the stores, around which General Atkinson 
had caused embankments to be thrown. 

On the 19th of May the whole army marched up the river in pursuit 
of the enemy, and on the evening of the same day received news of the 
massacre of several whites on Indian Creek, not far from Ottawa. 

General Atkinson ordered Gen. Whiteside's and Col. Taylor (after-' 
wards President of the United States) to continue the pursuit with the 
volunteers, while he, with the regulars, returned to Dixon. After fol- 
lowing trails in several directions, which proved that the Indians had 
divided and left the immediate country for the north, and the troops 
expressing a determination to return to their homes, were brought to 
the mouth of Rock river, and there discharged on the 27th and 28th 
days of May, and thus the campaign ended without effecting any im- 
portant results. 

SECOND CAMPAIGN 1832 

On the requisition of Gen. Atkinson, the Governor called for 1,000 
additional men, which were recruited out of the disbanded men for im- 
mediate service, for a term of twenty days, until the new levies should 
arrive. This regiment, which was filled without difficulty, organized 
by the election of Jacob Fry, as Colonel; James D. Henry, as Lieuten- 
ant-Colonel. 

Although this regiment does not appear grouped together, as it should 
be, in this record, the companies, as well as can now be ascertained, wero 
('apt. Samuel Smith's company (page 168), Capt. B. James' company 
page 109), Capt. Elijah lies' company (page 174). (This company 
contained private

HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXI 

Win. C. Ball's company (182), Capt. Alexander White's company (page 
183), and Capt. A. W. Snyder's company (page 185). This regiment 
after bravely guarding the imperiled frontier, was mustered out of the 
service on the 15th day of June, except Capt. lies' company, which was 
discharged the 16th, and Capt. Snyder's discharged the 21st of June. 
This latter company had some severe skirmishing with the enemy, some 
sventy in number, near Kellogg's Grove, in which four of the Indians 
and two of the whites were killed. 

On the 6th of June, Black Hawk, with about 150 warriors, made an 
attack on Apple River Fort, situated a quarter of a mile north of the 
present village of Elizabeth and twelve miles from Galena. Three 
messengers, on their way from Dixon to Galena, were fired upon when 
one- half mile from the fort, and one of them wounded, but all of them 
escaped to the fort. The inhabitants, alarmed at the shots, fled to the 
fort( which was invested, and a continual fire kept up for fifteen hours 
by the savages, who had taken possession of the dwellings of the whites, 
from which they fired through holes made for that purpose through 
the walls. The twenty-five men composing the garrison, made such a 
determined resistance that the savages, after having destroyed ever} 7 - 
thing within their reach, departed, taking with them all the stock, pro- 
visions and movable property of the settlers. Only one man of the 
whites was killed, while the loss of the savages has never been ascer- 
tained. Col. Strode, of the militia, arrived the next day from Dixon 
with a force to their relief, but the enemy had made good his escape. 

The savages having attacked and killed two men near Ft. Hamilton, 
five miles from Galena, Gen. Dodge, of Wisconsin, followed them, with 
a force under his command, and, overtaking them at Pecatonica, charged 
upon them and killed the whole number, with a loss of three men killed 
in his own force. 

Capt. Stephenson, of Galena, and a part of his company, had a little 
skirmish with the enemy between Apple River Fort and Kellogg's Grove, 
and were repulsed by the Indians, who had taken shelter in a small 
grove, with the loss of three killed and the Captain and several others 
seriously wounded. 

The new levies met as provided in the call, at Beardstown and Hen- 
nepin, but were afterward ordered to Fort Wilbourne, a small fortifica- 
tion on the south bank of the Illinois river, about a mile above Peru, 
which had been erected by Lieut. Wilbourne for the protection of the 
stores entrusted to his care by Col. March. 

A promiscuous multitude of several thousands had assembled, among 
them many of the most prominent men in the State, and the selection 
of officers was a matter requiring great delicacy and tact. But after 
the organization of the companies, the captains of the several companies 
and the Governor agreed that the principal officers should be deter- 
mined by an election, in which all the troops should participate. The 
brigades were organized, and on the 16th day of June Alexander Posey 



XXII BLACK HAWK WAR. 

was elected General of the First, Milton K. Atkinson of the Second, 
and James D. Henry of the Third. Gen. Atkinson received them into 
the service of the United States, and took the general command of the 
force thus organized, which amounted to 3192 men. 

The Governor appointed to his staff, as Aids, Benjamin F. Hickman 
and Alex. F. Grant, James Turney, Adjutant General, and Col. E. C. 
March, Q. M. General. Besides the main army four battalions Avere 
organized for special purposes, commanded severally by Majors Bogart 
and Bailey, and Colonels Buckmaster and Dement. 

The brigades were composed of three regiments each, commanded by 
officers of their own selection, but no rolls of the regimental field and 
staff, nor of the staff of the different brigade commanders are in the pos- 
session of this office, though supposed to exist among the records of the 
War Department at Washington, D. C. 

In view of the disasters which threatened the northern frontier, the 
Governor ordered a chain of forts to be erected from the Mississippi 
to Chicago. 

On the 17th day of Jime^ Col. Dement, with his spy battalion of 150 
men, was ordered to report himself to Col. Taylor at Dixon, while the 
main army was to follow. On his arrival at Dixon he was ordered to 
take position in Kellogg's grove, where, on the 25th day of June, h3 
was visited by Mr. Funk, of McLean county, who, while on his way from 
the lead mines, the night before, reported that a trail of about 300 In- 
dians leading northward had been seen that day. A council of war, 
held that night, determined that Col. Dement and fifty picked men 
should reconnoiter the surrounding country the next day. At day- 
light the party sallied forth, and when within 300 yards of the fort 
discovered several Indian spies. Regardless of the cries of Col. De- 
ment and Lieut-Governor Casey, who accompanied him, and without 
waiting for direction, these undrilled.and undisciplined men immedi- 
ately charged on the foes, and recklessly following them, despite all 
efforts of Col. Dement to cheek them, were led into an ambush, and sud- 
denly were confronted by 300 howling naked savages under the com- 
mand of Black Hawk in person. The sudden appearance of the savages 
created a panic among the whites, and each man struck out for him- 
self in the direction of the fort, with a speed which equalled, if it did 
not excel, the alacrity with which they left it in the morning. 

In the confused retreat which followed, five of the whites, who were 
without horses, were killed, while the remainder reached the fort, and 
dismounting, entered it, closely pursued by the enemy. The fort was 
vigorously assailed for over an hour by the savages, who were repulsed, 
and forced to retire, leaving nine of their number behind them, dead on 
the field, besides several others carried away wounded. Xo one in the 
fort was killed, but several wounded. Col. Dement received three shots 
through his clothing, but fortunately escaped unhurt. At 8 o'clock in 
the morning, messengers were sent fifty miles to Gen. Posey for assist- 
ance, and towards sundown that General and his Frigade made their 



HISTORICAL ^MEMORANDA. XXIII 

appearance, and no further attack was made on the fort by the savages. 
General Posey started out in search of the enemy the next day, but the 
trail showed that they had pursuid their favorite tactics of scattering 
their forces, and the pursuit was abandoned. The army continued its 
march up Rock River, near the source of which they expected to find the 
enemy. As provisions were scarce and difficult to convey for any dis- 
tance, the command of Gen. Alexander, with a detachment under Gen- 
Henry and Major Dodge, was sent to Fort Winnebago, between Fox and 
Wisconsin rivers, to obtain supplies. Learning that Black Hawk was 
encamped on the Whitewater, Gen. Henry and Major Dodge started in 
immediate pursuit, leaving Gen. Alexander with his command in charge 
of the provisions to return to Gen. Atkinson. After several days' hard 
marches, and much suffering from exposure and lack of food, on the 
21st day of July, the enemy were overtaken on the bluffs of the Wis- 
consin, and a decisive battle fought, in which Gen. Henry commanded 
the American forces, which consisted of Major Dodge's battalion on 
the right, Col. Jones' regiment in the center, and Col. Collins' on the 
left, with Major Ewing's battalion in the front, and Col. Fry's regiment 
in the rear as a reserve force. In this order they charged the enemy, 
and drove him from position after position with great loss, till the sun 
went down, leaving them victors, in the first important advantage gained 
oveT the enemy during the war. 

In the morning it was discovered that the Indians had fled in the di- 
rection of the Mississippi river, leaving 168 dead on the field, and of 
their wounded, taken with them, twenty-five were found dead the next 
day on their trail, while Gen. Henry lost one man killed and eight 
wounded. Litters were constructed for the wounded, and on the 23d 
of July, the army was again in motion, and after some difficulty on ac- 
count of high water, reached Blue Mounds in safety, where they met 
Gen. Atkinson with the regulars, and the balance of the volunteer force. 
A return of the force at this time showed in Posey's brigade 200 effec- 
tive men, Alexander's 850, in Henry's 300, while the regulars under 
Gen. Brady mustered 4-00 men; all told, the force mustered about 1,200 
effective men though much reduced since the beginning of the cam- 
paign, still more than twice the number possessed by Black Hawk when 
in his best state of preparation, before any of the fights. 

On the 25th the whole army was again put in motion, to try to find 
the Indians. Having spent two days in crossing the Wisconsin river, 
near Helena, on the 28th they came up with the trail of the Indians, 
the abandoned articles, and dead bodies strewed along the trail, show- 
ing them to be in a deplorable condition, and suffering for food. On 
the morning of the 2d of August, the army reached the bluffs of the 
Mississippi, some distance, however, from the stream. The Indians 
had reached the river, and were making active preparations to cross. 
Some had already crossed, and some of the women and children had 
started down the river in canoes to Prairie du Chien, which they after- 



XXIV BLACK HAWK WAK. 

ward reached in a starving condition. In this condition the Indians, 
when they arrived at the river, were attacked by a force under Capt. 
Throckmorton, who was on the steamer Warrior, and who. with a six- 
pound cannon, loaded with canister, destroyed many of the luckless 
fugitives, although they had displayed a white flag, which he refused 
to recognize. The fuel in the steamer having failed, it fell down the 
river to Prairie du Chien. Although he had killed twenty-three In- 
dians and wounded may more, Capt. Throckniorton intended to return 
after wooding up, and finish the remainder. Before he could execute 
his intention, however, Gen. Atkinson had fallen on the iinfortunate 
savages where they were encamped, at the mouth of the Bad Axe, a 
creek emptying into the Mississippi river, and had commenced a gen- 
eral battle, in which the Indians were completely routed, and suffered 
<! loss of 150 killed, besides many drowned, and many more wounded. 
A large number of women and children lost their lives, owing to the 
fact that it was impossible to distinguish them from the men. [David- 
son and Stuve's Hist. 405.] The American loss was seventeen killed. 

This battle virtually ended the war. Gen. Atkinson, with his force, 
and prisoners, [about fifty women and children], fell down the river 
to Prairie duChien. On the 7th day of August, Gen. Winfield Scott, 
who, with nine companies of infantry, had been sent from Fortress 
Monroe, arrived, and assumed command. He had arrived with four 
of these companies at Chicago the day before, making the march of 
1,800 miles in eighteen days, part of the way by steamer on the lakes, 
having left behind three companies, who had contracted Asiatic cholera 
at Detroit, at Fort Gratiot, forty miles from that city. This disease 
preyed to such an extent on the forces who came through, that they re- 
mained in Chicago until the latter part of the month before coming on 
to Fort Armstrong, their final destination. The volunteers now re- 
turned to Dixon, and were discharged on the 17th day, of August. On 
the 27th Black Hawk, having been captured by some treacterous Win- 
nebagoes, was delivered to the whites at Prairie du Chien, and he and 
his family were sent as hostages to Fortress Monroe, and there retained 
until June, 1833. In September, 1832, a treaty was made which ended 
the Indian troubles in this State, and although a few companies were 
detained a few weeks longer, the main body of the force returned to their 
homes in August, 1832. 

Black Hawk, upon regaining his liberty, ever after conducted himself 
in a friendly manner to the whites. In 1837 he again visited Wash- 
ington with a deputation of the chiefs of his tribe, on the invitation of 
the President, to settle differences which had occasioned a violent war 
with them and the Sioux. After his return he settled in what is now 
known as Lee county, Iowa. In the spring of 1838 he built himself a 
dwelling on the DCS Moines river. 20 miles above its mouth. In this 
he moved his family, and prepared to farm and live after the manner 
of the whites. On a visit made to Burlington, the following autumn.

he took cold, which brought on a disease which terminated his eventful 
life, and at the age of 72 Black llawj< was gathered to his fathers. 

Perhaps no one of his nu-v ever excelled Black Hawk in patriotism 
or love for his country. He fought an unequal battle for the home 
and the graves of his ancestors. In his last speech to the Americans, 
he said: "Rock River was a heautiful country. I like my towns, my 
cornfields and the home of my people. I fought for it. It is now 
yours. It will produce you good crops." 

A dispassionate view of the war and its causes will show that he had 
grievances, and when he had failed to redress them in a peaceable man- 
ner, had resorted to arms, because he thought it the only possible arbi- 
trament

MEXICAN WAR. 

The volunteers from the State of Illinois performed such a conspicu- 
ous part in the war with Mexico, that it is necessary to give an epitome 
of the war, to be able to understand and appreciate the nature and value 
of their services, and render them the due credit which their importance 
demands. 

On the llth day of May, 1846, Congress passed an act, declaring that 
"By the act of the Republic of Mexico, a state of war exists between 
that Government and the United States." At the same time that body 
made an appropriation of ten millions dollars to carry on the war, and 
authorized the President to accept fifty thousand volunteers. 

This force, for convenience sake, to save transportation, and because 
of their already well-known familiarity with fire-arms, was drawn prin- 
cipally from the Southern and Western Stats. ' Illinois was called on 
for three regiments of infantry or riflemen, and the pay, with all allow- 
ances, placed at $15.50 per month to the private soldier. The militia 
of the State being then in an unorganized condition, Governor Ford is- 
sued a call for thirty full companies of volunteers of a maximum of 
eighty men, to serve for twelve months, and with the privilege of elect- 
ing their own company and regimental officers. 

The response to the call was enthusiastic in the extreme. Within ten 
days thirty-five full companies had organized and reported. By the time 
the place of rendezvous had been selected, (Alton), there had been sev- 
enty-five companies recruited, each furious to go of which the Gov- 
ernor (Ford) was compelled to select thirty companies the full quota 
of the State and the forty-odd unsuccessful companies were doomed 
to the disappointement of remaining at home. Of these thirty com- 
panies, were organized the First Regiment, Col. John J. Hardin; the 
Second Regiment, Col. William PI. Bisscll, and the Third Regiment, 
Col. Ferris Foreman., which were recruited during the months of April, 
May and June, and mustered into the United States service, at Alton, 
111., on the 2d day of July, 1846. 

Hon. E. D. Baker, then a member of "Congress from the Capital dis- 
trict, induced the Secretary of War to accept another regiment from this 
State, and thereupon the Fourth Illinois was organized and mustered 
into the service on the 18th day of July, 1846, and served in the same 
brigade with the Third Regiment until both were discharged. 

The First and Second Regiments must be considered together, as their 
history is the same. 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXVII 

These regiments were transported separately down the Mississippi 
river and across the Gulf, and re-joined each other on the first day of 
August at Camp Erwin, near the old town of Victoria, on Weuloop 
river, and after marching together to San Antonio, Texas, they joined 
General Wool's army of the center. They left that city on the 26th 
day of September. Marching steadily along, they entered Santa Rosa 
on the 54th day of October with no opposition. Thence they marched 
to Monclova, thence to Parras, where the original idea of the march, the 
capture of Chihuahua, was abandoned. 

After remaining at this place twelve days, General Wool started to 
intercept, if possible, Santa Anna's attack on Monterey, and on the '21st 
of December occupied Agua Xueva, thus completing a six weeks' march 
of about one thousand miles, which had been barren of results. In 
January, 1847, General Taylor proceeded from Saltillo and formed a. 
junction with Gen. Wool. On the 22d day of February, 1847, was be- 
gun the battle of Buena Vista, which ended on the 23d, and resulted in 
a complete victory for the American forces, and in which these two 111- 
nois regiments covered themselves with glory. 

Concerning the conduct of the Illinois volunteers at the battle of Buena 
Vista, we quote from an extended report made b} r Major General Zach. 
Taylor, U. S. A., commanding, dated 

"AGUA NEUVA, March 6, 1847. 

"The First and Second Illinois and the Second Kentucky Regiments served Imme- 
diately under my eye, and I bear a willing testimony to their excellent conduct through- 
out the day. The spirit and gallantry with which the First Illinois and Second Ken- 
tucky engaged the enemy in the morning, restored confidence to that part of the field, 
while the list of casualties will show how much these three regiments suffered in sus- 
taining the heavy charge of the enemy in the afternoon. Captain Conner's Company 
of Texas Volunteers, attached to the Second Illinois Regiment, fought bravely, its 
Captain being wounded and two subalterns killed. Colonel Bissell, the only surviving 
Colonel of these regiments, merits notice for his coolness and bravery on this occasion. 
After the fall of the field officers of the First Illinois and Second Kentucky Regi- 
ments, the command of the former devolved upon Lieutenant-Colonel Weatherford, 
and that of the latter upon Major Fry. Regimental commanders and others, who 
have rendered reports, speak in general terms of the good conduct of their officers 
and men, and have specified many names, but the limits of this report forbid a re- 
capitulation of them here. I may, however, mention * * * Lieutenat-Colonel Weath- 
erford, First Illinois Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Morrison, Major Trail and Adjutant 
Whiteside (severely wounded), Second Illinois Regiment, and Major Fry, Second Ken- 
tucky Regiment, as being favorably noticed for gallantry and good conduct. * * * 
To Major Warren, First Illinois Volunteers, I feel much indebted, for his firm and 
Judicious course, while exercising command in the city of Saltillo." (MSS. and doc. 
1847, p. 139.) 

From a return of troops engaged in the action of the 22 d and 23d 
day of February, A. D. 1847, made by General Zachery Taylor to the 
Adjutant General of the Army, under date of March 6th, we quote as 
follows : 

FIRST ILLINOIS. 

Eight companies 1 Colonel, 1 Lieutenant-Colonel, 8 Captains, 1 Adjutant, 18 Sub- 
alterns, 519 non-commissioiu'd officers and privates. Sick Two commissioned officers and 
25 non-commissioned officers and privates, making an aggregate of 580 officers and 
privates. 



XXVIII MEXICAN WAR. 

SECOND ILLINOIS. 

Eight companies 1 Colonel, 1 Major, 7 Captains, 1 Adjutant, 19 Subalterns, 496 non- 
commissioned officers and privates. Sick Four commissioned officers, 40 non-commis- 
sioned officers and privates. Aggregate, 573 officers and privates. 

From an official return of the killed, wounded and missing in battle 
of Buena Vista, we quote: 

FIRST ILLINOIS FOOT. 

Killed One Colonel, One Captain, one Subaltern, 26 enlisted men. Total 29. 
Wounded Two Subalterns, 16 enlisted men, missing, 3. Aggregate loss, 50. 

SECOND ILLINOIS FOOT. 
Killed Two Captains, one Subaltern, 29 enlisted men. 

Wounded Two Captains, six Subalterns, 63 enlisted men. Missing, four enlisted 
men. Aggregate loss, 126. 

With the exception of the sending out of an occasional foraging de- 
tachment no further service was performed by these two regiments dur- 
ing the war. They remained at Buena Vista until the latter part of 
May, when the following order was issued: 

HEADQUARTERS, BUENA VISTA, ? 
May 28, 1847. f 
Orders No. 302. 

The term of service for which the First and Second Illinois Regiments have en- 
gaged to serve the United States has nearly expired, and they are about to return to 
their homes. The General commanding takes this occasion to express his deep regret 
at the departure of those who have been so long under his immediate command, and 
who have served so well their country. 

Few can boast of longer marches, greater hardships, or more privations, and none 
of greater gallantry than on the field of Buena Vista. It was there that the General 
witnesses with inflinite satisfaction their valor, which gave additional luster to our 
arms, and increased glory to our country. To their steadiness and firmness in con- 
nection with the Second Kentucky Regiment of foot, in resisting the Mexicans at a 
critical moment, and when there were five 1 to one against them, and as General Santa 
Anna said, "where blood flowed in torrents and the field of battle was strewed with 
their dend," we may justly ascribe a large share of the glorious victory achieved over 
20,000 men. A great victory it is true; but obtained at too great a sacrifice. Hardin, 
Zabriska, McKee, Woodward, Yell, Clay, and many others, fell leading, their men 
to the charge. Their names and gallant deeds will ever be remembered by a grateful 
people. In taking leave of these regiments, the General cannot omit to express his 
admiration of the conduct and gallant bearing of all, and especially of Cols. Bissell 
and Wcarherford and their officers, who have on all occasions done honor to them- 
selves, and heroically sustained the cause of their country in the battle of Buena Vista. 
His best wishes will attend them to their hdtaes, where they will be received with 
joy and gladness as the pride of their families and of their States. 

By Command of Brigadier-General WOOL. 

IRWIN M'DOWELL, Assistant Adjutant General. 

These regiments were discharged at Camargo, Mexico, on the 17th 
day of June, 1847. 

THE THIRD AND FOURTH REGIMENTS. 

were like the first two, brigaded together during their entire service. 
They were placed in Gen. Paterson's division, and marching from Mata- 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXIX 

moras to Tampico, formed part of Gen. Shields' force while he was in 
command of that city. On the 9th day of March, the Third and Fourth 
Eegiments took part in the descent on Vera Cruz. Gen. Scott says in 
his report, dated Vera Cruz, March 14, 1847 : "I could not postpone 
the descent, successfully made on the 9th inst., for half of the surf boats, 
Brig.-Gen. Shields' brigade, (old volunteers from Tampico), or the 
wagons and teams which were then behind. That General landed with 
the army, having a small part of one of his old regiments, (three com- 
panies of the Third Illinois Foot), and the New York regiment of new 
volunteers." (Mess, and Doc. 1847, p. 218). Gen. Scott was mistaken 
in attributing to the Third Illinois credit due to the Fourth. Though 
both regiments took part in the expedition, it was companies "A," "F" 
and "G" of the Fourth Illinois, under the immediate command of Lieut. 
Col. John Moore, who made the landing referred to, Capt. H. A. Rob- 
erts, of Co. "A," from Sangamon county, being the first man to place his 
foot on the enemy's soil. 

In the battle of Cerro Gordo, the Third and Fourth were hotly en- 
gaged, and gained great credit for their bravery. Gen. Scott, in his 
report of that battle to the Secretary of War, under date of April 23, 
1847, says: 

Early on the morning of the 18th, the columns moved to the general attack, and 
our success was speedy and decisive. ** * The Brigade so gallantly led by General 
Shields, and after his fall, by Colonel Baker, deserves high commendation for its fine 
behavior and success. Cols. Foreman and Burnett, and Major Harris (Fourth Illinois) 
commanded the regiments; Lieut. Hammond, Third artillery, and Lieut. Davis, Illinois 
volunteers, constituted the brigade staff. (Mess, and Doc. 1847, p. 263.) 

Brig.-Gen. Twiggs who was in the immediate command of all the 
advanced forces, in a report to the General-in-Chief, dated April 19, 
1847, (the day following the battle), says: 

Of the conduct of the volunteer force under the brave General Shields.- I cannot 
speak in too high, terms. After he was wounded, portions of the three regiments were 
<vith me when I arrived first at the Jalapa road, and drove before them the enemy's 
cannoneers from their loaded guns. Their conduct and names shall be the subject of a 
special report. (Mess, and Doc. 1847, p. 2?6.) 

From the report of Ma j. -Gen. Patterson, commanding the volunteer 
division at the battle of Cerro Gordo, under date of April 23, 1847, and 
made to the commanding General, we extract: 

"On the afternoon of the 17th, a rapid and continuous fire of artillery and infantry, 
announcing that the Second division of the regulars was closely engaged with the left 
of the neemy's lines, I was instructed, and immediately directed the Third Volunteer 
Brigade, under Brig.-Gen. Shieds, to proceed at once to its support. Before the brigade 
reached the position of that division, the action had ceased for the day; the night 
\vas, however, occupied in establishing several pieces of artillery upon a height ad- 
jacent to the "Cerro Gordo." 

Knrly on the morning of the 18th the brigade moved to turn the extreme left of the 
enemy's lines, resting on the Jalapa road. This was done over rugged ascents and 
through dense chapparal, under a senvre -uul continuous flank lire from the enemy. 
Brig.-Gen. Shields, whilst gallantly leading his command, and forming it for the at- 
tack of the enemy, posted in force in his front, fell severely wounded, and was carried 
from the field. 



XXX MEXICAN AVAR. 

Colonel Baker. Fourth Illinois Regiment, having assumed the command, the enemy')? 
lines were charged with spirit and success by the Third and Fourth Illinois, and the 
New York Regiment, under the respective commanders. Cols. Foreman and Burnett, and 
Major Harris. The rout now becoming general, the brigade pressed forward in rapid 
pursuit, leaving a sufficient force to secure the artillery, specie, baggage, provisions 
and camp equipage left in our hands." 

Later in same report Gen. Patterson says: "The attention of the general-in-chk f is 
particularly called to the gallantry of Brig.-Gens. Pillow and Shields, who were both 
wounded at the head of their respective brigades; and to Colonel Baker, who led 
Shields' brigade during a severe part of the action,- and during the pursuit; and 
Lieut. G. T. M. Davis, Illinois volunteer aid-de-camp to Shields' brigade. 

The loss of both regiments is given in the official reports of killed 
and wounded,- forwarded to the War Department after the battle, as 
follows : 

Third Illinois Killed, 1; wounded, 15; total, 16. 

Fourth Illinois Killed, 5 ; wounded, 43 ; total, 48. 

This office is in receipt of a letter dated February 5, 1882, from Second 
Lieut. W. A. Tinne}", of the Fourth Illinois volunteers, in which he 
says : "We stormed their fort and put the enemy to flight, taking about 
six thousand prisoners, and we captured Gen. Santa Anna's carriage, 
also his wooden leg, which I have in my possession." 

The Third and Fourth Regiments were shortly afterward returned 
by vessels to New Orleans, where they were discharged from the 23d 
to the 25th days of May, 1847. 

THE FIFTH REGIMEXT, 

which is known officially as "the. First Regiment, Illinois Volunteers 
"during the war" (the other regiments having been enlisted for "twelve 
months"), was called out, under the requisition made by the Secretary 
of War April 19th, 1847, for six thousand more volunteers to "serve dur- 
ing the war," to take the place of those wfeftse term of enlistment was 
to expire. Of this call, but one regiment was assigned to the State of 
Illinois, which was organized June 8th, 1847, at Alton, Illinois, by the 
election of E. W. B. Xewby as Colonel. 

This regiment left Alton by steamer, for Fort Leavenworth June 14, 
and from thence marched across the plains to Santa Fe. Tn October, 
1847, the first battalion with a part of a Missouri regiment marched to 
El Paso. The other battalion remained at Santa Fe, as a garrison. 
This regiment lost heavily by sickness and exposure in its long marches 
across the plains, but was engaged in no battles or skirmishes with the 
enemy. It was mustered out of the service at Alton, Illinois, from the 
15th to the 18th day of October, 1848. 

THE SIXTH REGTMEXT, 

otherwise known as the Second Regiment, enlisted "during the war," 
Vviis organized out of the overflow of companies which were raised for 
the Fifth Regiment. 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXXI 

So much honor had been achieved by the four regiments sent out by 
this State the first year of the war, that their praise was on every lip, 
and the young and ambitious were ready to make any sacrifice to be 
able to go and fight the Mexicans. When the call was made for the 
Fifth Regiment is was difficult again for the Governor to select, as the 
men poured in by hundreds, and enough reported in ten days time to 
fill half a dozen regiments. Application was again made to the Secre- 
tary of War by Lieutenant Colonel Hicks and others for leave to organ- 
ize another regiment. It was hard 'to refuse these veterans of Buena 
Vista and Cerro Gordo, and the permission was granted, and the regi- 
ment was organized at Alton, Illinois, on the 3d day of August, 1847, 
by the election of J. Collins as Colonel. 

Shortly after the regiment w r as mustered into the United States service 
it was forwarded by steamer to New Orleans, and there divided into two 
battalions. Companies A, D, E, F and H, under command of Colonel 
Collins, being sent to Vera Cruz, where they arrived on the 31st day of 
August, 1847. They were shortly afterwards engaged in a skirmish 
with the guerrillas, but saw no further actual service, save the duties 
of camp and garrison life. The Second Battalion, under Lieutenant 
Colonel Hicks, consisted of Companies B, C, G, I and K, and was for- 
warded by vessel to Tampico and there performed garrison duty until 
discharged. Both battalions, as the muster rolls show, lost heavily from 
sickness, incident to the climate, as might have been expected of raw 
and unacclimated men in so dangerous a climate. This regiment was 
mustered out on the 20th to the 25th days of July, 1848, at Alton, Illi- 
aois. 

INDEPENDENT MOUNTED TROOPS 

The rolls furnished this office from the war office in Washington show 
that four independent companies of cavalry were mustered into the 
United States service during the Mexican war. All enlisted the sec- 
ond year of the war, and mustered in, as all troops were, under the sec- 
ond call, for "during the war." Of these, the first recruited,. 

CAPT. ADAM DUNLAP'S COMPANY, 

was recruited during the month of May, 1847, at Rushville, at Schuyler 
county, and was mustered into the United States service in Alton, on 
the 21st day of the same month, its enlistment being authorized by the 
same order under which Col. N"e why's regiment was recruited. This 
company was never engaged in any actual battle, but did considerable 
scouting service, and was in several skirmishes with the guerrillas and 
scouts of the enemy. This company also lost heavily, as did all the vol- 
unteers of that year ,by sickness, several men having died while at Mata- 
moras. It was finally discharged at Alton, Illinois, on the 7th da}' of 



XXXII .MKXH'AX WAR. 

November, 18-18, having served eighteen months in all, being distin- 
guished as the longest term of service of any company from this Stale 
in the whole war. 

CAPT. WYATT B. STAPP's COMPANY. 

This company was recruited at Monmouth, in the month of June, 
1847, and was mustered in at Quincy, Illinois, on the 10th day of Au- 
gust, 1847. It lost severely by sickness at Perote and Jalapa, and was 
finally returned to the States, without adventure of serious nature, and 
was mustered out at Alton on the 26th day of July, 1848, lacking fifteen 
days of serving one year from the date of muster. 

FIRST LIEUT. GEORGE C. LANPHERE, 

Of this company, returned home in the spring of 1848, to recruit for 
his company, and during the months of March, April and May had re- 
cruited thirty-one men [page 309], who were never sent to the company, 
but were mustered out by order of the Secretary of War, at Jefferson 
Barracks, near St. Louis, Mo., June 28, 1848. 

CAPT. MICHAEL K. LAWLER's COMPANY. 

During the month of August, 1847, Capt. Lawler, who was a veteran 
of the Black Hawk War, recruited an independent company of cavalry 
at Shawneetown, which was mustered into the United States service at 
place of enrollment, on August 13, and forwarded to Mexico via the New 
Orleans route. Except the common experience with fever, reptiles and 
insects, this/ company had no encounter with foes of any kind, and after 
some routine service, laborious but unimportant, was returned to place 
of enlistment, and mustered out on the 26th day of October, 1848. 

CAPT. JOSIAII LITTLE'S COMPANY 

was conspicuous as the last company received into the United States ser- 
vice, being mustered in at Alton on the llth day of September, 1847. 
No record of its service has been received, and we can only add that it 
was mustered out at the same place July 25, 1848. 

"REGULAR" ENLISTMENTS FROM ILLINOIS. 

On the llth day of February, 1848, Congress passed an act author- 
izing the President to raise ten new regiments for the Uegular Army 
to be enlisted for "during the war." These regiments were all recruited 
prior to the 30th of September of the same year, and consisted of a regi- 
ment of Voltigeurs, eight regiments of Infantry, the Xinth, Tenth, Ele- 
venth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth and Sixteenth and the 
Third regiment of Dragoons. These regiments were recruited at vari- 
ous stations all over the United States. Of these regiments the Twelfth, 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXXIII 

Thirteenth and Fourteenth regiments were recruited by Brig.-Gen. G. 
M. Brooke, at Xew Orleans, while the Fifteenth and Sixteenth were re- 
cruited by Lieut. Col. J. Erving, at Cincinnati. As will appear by the 
rolls published, Illinois furnished two companies for the Sixteenth and 
one company for the Fourteenth regiment, under this call. As to the 
history of these regiments we find that the Fourteenth regiment was bri- 
gaded with the Voltigeur regiment and the Eleventh Infantry, and un- 
der Brig.-Gen. Cadwalader was engaged in the battle of El Molino del 
Key, on the 8th day of September, 1847. Concerning their conduct 
Gen. Worth, in his official report of the engagement, made to the 



Commander-in-Chief, dated Tacayuba, September 10th, 1847, says: 

"I desire to bring the notice of the General-in-Chief to the gallantry and good con- 
duct of Brig.-Geu. Cadwalader and his command, by whit-h the mosc timely and es- 
sential service was rendered in supporting the attack, and following up the success. 
Such movements as he was directed to make were executed with zeal ami promptness." 
(Mess, and Doc. 1847, p. 366.) 

From a return of killed and wounded in this engagement accompany- 
ing this report, it appears that the Fourteenth regiment lost, Killed 
1 Corporal. Wounded 1 Field Officer, 1 Captain, 3 Lieutenants, 2 
Corporals and 16 Privates. 

Xo official report of the service of the Sixteenth regiment is in posses- 
sion of this office or at present accessible. 

By General Order Xo. 25, A. G. 0., June 8, 1848, the enlisted men 
of these two regiments, as- well as others enlisted under the same act, 
were ordered to be mustered out, the Fourteenth at Xew Orleans, and 
the Sixteenth at Xewport Barracks, Kentucky, which was done accord- 
ingly. 

As several recruiting stations were opened in the Southwestern States, 
quite a number of Illinois men were recruited in the Eegular Army 
proper, notably in the Fourth regiment. A member of this regiment, 
Mr. J. W. Thomson, of Princeton, Illinois, and a private of Company 
"A," has kindly furnished us an account of the services of his regiment 
in the Mexican war, but as we have no official statement of the names 
or number of the Illinois men scattered through these regiments, we for- 
bear to publish this as well as some other interesting matter which we 
have concerning the services of .the regular regiments in the Mexican 
war. 

In closing this memoranda of the services of the Illinois soldiers in 
the Black Hawk and Mexican wars, we can not forbear to mention that 
in the voluminous correspondence this office has had with the survivors 
of these wars, the idea seems to be universally prominent with them that 
the General Government should, in the exercise of that spirit of patri- 
otic gratitude, heretofore manifested in favor of the soldiers of the revo- 
lution and of the war of 181'2, grant equally to these survivors some 
i'urilier nvognition of their serviees in the way <>!' a pension. While ifc

is no part of our duty, in editing this record, to attempt to support, or 
further any propositions asking such action by Congress, we may be al- 
lowed to say, without subjecting ourselves to criticism, that there is some- 
thing in the appearance of the letters of these old veterans of a gener- 
ation gone before, which appeals to our liveliest sympathies. They al- 
most unanimously ask in their quavering and palsied penmanship, thai; 
the General Government make sonic additional provision to secure them 
against want in their old age.

mended and approved by the said Major General Scott (in consequence of the muster- 
ing two companies out of service which constituted part of the guard for the pro- 
tection of that frontier under my command); that this organization was necessary for 
the protection of the frontier; that said company should be in service, and that they

NOTE. There is a discrepancy in dates relative to the service of this company, 
which requires correction before it can be paid. The date of enrollment appears gener- 
ally to have been April 27, 1832, whilst Governor Reynolds' certificate says that it 
was called out by him under Gen. Atkinson's requisition of May 29 last.

MEXICAN WAR. 



REGULAR ENLISTMENTS 



The following rolls of enlisted men were furnished this office by the War Department 
at Washington, D. C., being of men recruited in the State of Illinois, under the act of 
Congress, known as "the ten regiment bill." Nothing is known of the particulars of 
their service further than is already given in the "Historical Memoranda," In the earlier 
pages of this book. The Adjutant-General of the army, when applied to for data as 
to the killed, wounded, discharged, etc., stated: "I have the honor to inform you, by 
direction of the Secretary of War, that the request cannot be complied with, It being 
contrary to the well established practice of the office, and not consistent with the 
Interests of the public service." 

An application was made at the same time for the names of commissioned officers, 
but the War Department, for some unexplained reason, failed to furnish those also.

A RECORD OF THE SERVICES OF THE ILLINOIS MILITIA, RIFLEMEN, AND 
VOLUNTEERS, IN THE INDIAN WARS, 1810 TO 1813. 



lu 1810 a series of massaerees and depredations were committed by the Indians of 
Illinois Territory, upon citizens of Louisiana Territory, which led to a long correspond- 
ence between the Governor of Louisiana Territory and Governor Edwards of Illinois 
Territory. The most daring of these, and which caused great excitement at the time, 
was committed at Portage du Sioux, on July 19th, which resulted in the killing of four 
white men and the serious wounding of a fifth. After some correspondence, in 
which it was made evident to Governor Edwards that the Potawotamies were guilty 
of the outrage, and a requisition having been made on him for the murderers, Captain 
Samuel Levering, on the 24th of July, 1811, was commissioned by Governor Edwards 
to visit the tribes on the Illinois River, and demand of them, the author of the mur- 
ders which had been committed. (Edwards 111.) 

Of this expedition, Ninian W. Edwards (in his History of Illinois), says: "Captain 
Levering departed on that day (July 24, 1811) from Kaskaskia, and arrived at Mr. Jar- 
rot's, in the village of Cahokia, on the next day at 11 P. M. Captain Ebert had en- 
gaged part of the crew for the boat, and on the 25th of July, the boat having been 
furnished by Governor Clark with the necessary equipments, provisions, etc., they 
!eft in the boat for IJeoria, with the crew, consisting of Captain Levering, Captain 
Hebert, Henry Swearingen, N. Rector, a Frenchman (who passed as an interpreter 
but was intended for a spy), a Pottawotamie Indian named Wish-ha, and eight 
oarsmen, each armed with a gun. The names of the boatmen were, Pierre St. John, 
Pierre La Parche, Joseph Trotier, Frances Pensoneau, Louis Bevanno, Thomas Hull 
(alias Woods), Pierre Voedre and Joseph Grammason, all of whom signed the articles 
of agreement as boatmen and soldiers of the expedition." (Edwards' History Illinois 
p. 38). This expedition was met at Portage du Sioux three days afterward by Captain 
Whiteside and his men, "who had just arrived from a blockhouse near the mouth 
of the Illinois River." 

Of Captain Whitesides' Company the records of this office show a muster roll of 
the date of November 13th, 1812. We publish this roll complete. 

A muster roll of a detachment of mounted riflemen commanded by Ensign Samuel 
Whitesides, of St. Clair county, Illinois Territory. By order of his Excellency, Ninian 
Edwards, Governor of Illinois Territory. From August 7th to August 22, 1812:

The record in Edwards' History continues: "On the morning of the 29th day of 
July, they arrived at Prairie Marcot, about nineteen miles above the mouth of the 
Illinois river, where Lieut. John Campbell was stationed, with seventeen men." The 
records in this office contain no roll of these men. 

On the arrival of the party at Peoria a parley was held between Captain Levering 
and a chief named Gomo. of the Pottawotamies. After several conferences Gomo gave 
up two stolen horses which he found in the possession of his men, but claimed that 
he oauld not find the murderers. Little Chief promised to deliver two more horses 
to Captain Heald at Chicago, and Gomo promised to deliver the murderers when they 
CO" lii be found. At this conference it was ascertained that the Missouri murderers 
werf: near Prophet's town. Tippecanoe and hopes .were entertained of catching them 
in the fall. By exposure incurred and disease contracted on this expedition. Captain 
Levering died soon after his return to Kaskaskia.

APPENDIX. 



Throughout the wholo suniiner of 1S11 the English emissaries kept up, industrious- 
ly, the dastardly work of setting the Indians on the white set Hers. Encouraged by 
their promises, Tecumseh had conceived the plan of combining the Southern tribe's 
into a league with the Northern Indians to make war on the United States until 
their lands were restored to them. 

His attack on General Harrison with a force of over 700 men, under cover of dark- 
ness, and his ultimate defeat and flight, with a serious loss of killed and wounded, 
Is a part of the history of our country which concerns us only, as our Illinois troops 
participated in the victory. This battle, which took place on the 6th day of November, 
1811, cost the lives of 37 killed outright and 25 mortally wounded who afterward died, 
and these were the very flower of the young settlers of Indiana and Illinois Territories. 
Among the killed in this battle was Captain Isaac White (for whom White county 
was afterward named), who commanded a company of Illinois troops raised in Saline 
county, of which we possess no roll. Here also fell Major Joe Daviess, whose name 
Is also perpetuated in the county of that name; and of the others whose names are 
not recorded nor have they been perpetuated we can only say they did their duty 
bravely, and the sacrifice of their own lives saved those of hundreds of women and 
children' who might otherwise have fallen ready victims to the cruelty of the victorious 
savages. 

The rolls of companies of rangers mustered into the United States service during 
the summer and fall of 1811, are no doubt preserved at the War Department. Of the 
militia who from time to time were called out by Governor Edwards, there are 
but few of the rolls preserved. We find, however, a pay roll of militia from July 4th, 
to July 29th, 1811, as follows:

During the winter of 1811-12 the Indians on the upper Mississippi were very hostile, 
and committed many murders. 

Governor Reynolds charges in his "Own Times" that the British agent at Prairie- 
du-Chien it was reported by Indian traders "had engaged all the warriors of that 
region to descend the Mississippi and exterminate the settlements on both sides of 
the river." 

A few marauding parties penetrated far down in the State, killing Andrew Moore 
and his son on the middle fork of Big Muddy (Moore's Prairie, in Jefferson county. 
was named for him.). Later in the same year they attacked Hill's fort, and were 
repulsed. 

In view of the troubled state of affairs Governor Edwards, in March, 1812, dis- 
patched Captain Edward Hebert as a friendly messenger to the Indians living on the 
Illinois River, inviting them to a counsel, which met on the 16th day of April, at 
Cahokia, and in which all the tribes in the State were represented. After protracted 
speech-making, in which the Indians rather had the advantage, they came away 
loaded with substantial presents. Reynolds says: 

"The wild men exercised the most diplomacy, and made the Governor believe 
that the Indians were for peace, and tbat the whites need dread nothing from 
them. They promised enough to obtain presents, and went oil' laughing at the 
credulity of the white*." 



APPENDIX 321 

Some of the same Indians who participated in this council were engaged in the 
Chicago massacre the August following. 

The Indians of the Northwest, however, did not desire peace. They had been kept 
stirred up and excited by the British agents, so that when Congress, on the l!)th day 
of June, 1812, declared war against Great Britain, they were ready to take advantage 
of the fact and throw their aid with the enemy in a general warfare against the 
settlers on the whole American frontier. In Illinois the militia was thoroughly organ- 
ized in anticipation of the outbreak, and additional forts were built, one near the 
mouth of Little Wabash, and another at the mouth of La Motte creek. 

MASSACRE AT CHICAGO. 

The greatest massacre ever committed in the State occurred on the 15th day of 
August, 1812, near the site of the present city of Chicago. In 1804 the General Gov- 
ernment had erected Fort Dearborn at the mouth of the Chicago River, on the site 
of an old fort built by the French in the 17th century, and maintained in it a small 
garrison, usually consisting of 50 men and three pieces of artillery. Under this precarious 
protection there had gathered quite a number of Indian traders and their families, 
and a few settlers had established their homes in the immediate vicinity. For the 
eight years of the existence of the fort the history of the garrison had been free 
from incident. The relations of the officers, the soldiers, and even of the settlers 
and traders, with the savages,, were supposed to be of the most cordial nature. At 
the time of the massacre the garrison consisted of 75 men, few of whom were 
effective soldiers. The officers were Captain Heald, Lieutenant Helm, Ensign Ronan 
and Surgeon Voorhees. 

On the 7th of August Captain Heald received an order from Governor Hull, com- 
mander-in-chief, to evacuate the fort. The Captain and Lieut. Helm, as well as John 
Kinzie, the principal trader, had families there, and their condition was all the 
more critical. Mr. Kinzie, who was seconded strongly by the sagacious chief who 
brought the order, Winnemeg, strongly advised against the evacuation, not believing 
it to be safe to leave the protection of the block-houses. But the commander, im- 
pressed more with his duty of obedience than of fear of danger, which he did not 
consider imminent, without consultation with his subordinates gave the order to 
evacuate the following morning. The other officers immediately added their re- 
monstrances, and urged the improbability of being able to make a successful retreat 
with so small a force to so great a distance as Fort Wayne, through the country 
of so vigilant and hostile a foe. 

The publication of this order for a week previous to the intended evacuation, no 
doubt added much to the danger. 

Captain Heald called together the I'ottawotamies in council on the 12th, and 

Eromised them the goods belonging to the government, and in return they promised 
im to escort his force to Fort Wayne. 

Captain Heald, when too late, found that it was indiscreet to give the ammunition 
and whisky to the Indians, so on the night of the 13th he destroyed all the ammuni- 
tion by throwing it in a well, broke the extra guns and stove the whisky barrels 
to prevent them falling into the hands of the Indians. A council of the savages held 
on the 14th expressed great indignation at this breach of faith on the part of the 
whites. Notice of the unfriendly attitude of the Indians was given during this day 
by Black Partridge, but -Captain Wells with 15 friendly Miamis having arrived from 
Fort Wayne, the despondency of the whites was somewhat dispelled. Captain Wells 
was a brother of Mrs. Heald, and hearing of the intended evacuation, had hastened 
to strengthen the escort with the few men he could command at a short notice. 

The reserved ammunition, 25 rounds to the man, was issued, and the baggage 
wagons for the sick, and women and children, made ready, and on the morning of the 
15th of August, notwithstanding another message from a friendly Indian to Mr. Kinzie, 
warning them of danger, they started on their ill-advised journey, leaving the fort 
at 9 in the morning, headed by a band of martial music; about a mile and a half 
from the fort, they encountered the Indians, hid behind the sand-hills which follow 
the course of the beach of Lake Michigan. The troops fought bravely, but were 
overborne by numbers; only 28 out of 66 surrendered. Captain Heald in his report 

fives them at 54 regulars and 12 militia, of which 26 regulars and all the militia were 
illed all the other officers, including Captain Wells, except the Captain and Lieut. 
Helm, and most of the women and children were killed outright, one savage toma- 
hawking 12 children in one wagon alone. 

Of all who started out on the fatal morning, was left the Captain, First Lieut., 25 
enlisted men, and 11 women and children, fortunately including among the latter the 
brave wife of Lieut. Helm, who herself and Mrs. Heald, who although seriously 
wounded, escaped most fortunately with her life. 

A most notable incident of this massacre was the fact that Mr. Kinzie and family 
were unharmed, and restored to their House the next day, with the loss of but a 
small part of their goods; they, however, ran a close chance of destruction on the 
day following by a party of Wabash I'ottawotamies, who arrived too late for the 
main attack, and were only saved by the presence of mind of Billy Cald"well, a half- 
breed Wyandott, who placated them with good speeches in recommendation of Mr. 
Kinzie's kindness to the Indians, and friendship for them. 

CAMPAIGN OF 1812. 

In the meantime Governor Edwards had not been idle. Anticipating for some 
months the action of the General Government, he had, on his individual credit, thor- 
oughly organized and equipped the militia of the territory, built forts, and made 
every possible effort. 



322 APPENDIX. 

General Hull having surrendered at Detroit on the 16th day of August, the British 
and Indians had full sway in the whole northwest, with the exception of Forts Wayne 
and Harrison. This emboldened them to penetrate further and further into the in- 
terior, even encroaching on the settlements In Southern Illinois. The British had 
descended the Mississippi to Rock Island, and were distributing goods to the Indians 
through their notorious agent, Samuel Girty. 

In the latter part of August, General Harrison superseded General Hull in the 
command of the Northwest. 

The State of Kentucky had raised a force of 7,000 men, a portion of which, under 
the command of General Hopkins and Colonel William Russell, was directed to the aid 
of Indiana and Illinois. On the llth day of October, Colonel Russell with two com- 
panies started from Vincennes to join Governor Edwards in an expedition then fitting 
out at Camp Russell. These companies were commanded by Captains Perry and 
Modreli. General Hopkins, in command at Vincennes with over 2,000 of the Ken- 
tuckiaus, were to move off the Wabash to Fort Harrison, pass over into Illinois, 
march across the prairies on the headwaters of the Saugamou and Verrnillion Rivers, 
destroying the Indian villages in the course of his march, and to finally effect a junc- 
tion with Edwards and Russell on the Illinois, and, combined, to sweep the Indians 
from thg whole length of that river. 

Governor Hopkins and his branch of the expedition succeeded very well In their 
plans, and about the middle of October crossed the Wabash at Fort Harrison, but 
the men began to show symptoms of discontent, which on the 20th had assumed so 
violent a form that the generals were forced to return after having penetrated from 
80 to 90 miles into the heart of the Indian country. 

In the meantime Governor Edwards had collected 350 men of the Illinois militia 
at Camp Russell, by the time Colonel Russell had arrived with the United States 
Rangers, as the regular troops were then called. These he divided in two small 
regiments, commanded respectively by Colonels Ellas Rector and Beujamine Stephen- 
son. (Rolls of a portion of these companies are yet preserved, and are published 
complete in the following pages). 

DESTRUCTION OF PEORIA. 

It haying been reported to Governor Edwards that the French settlers at Peoria 
were inciting the Indians to attacks on the settlers, he dispatched Capt. Thomas E. 
Craig, of Shawneetown, with his company (see roll) in advance of the expedition, 
with two boats on the Illinois River, one boat loaded with provisions, and tools to build 
a fort, the others armed with blunderbusses and a swivel, as a sort of a gun boat, 
while both were "fortified so that the enemies bullets could not enter their sides." 
Craig was to wait at Peoria for further orders from the commander-in-chief, and 
was to make offensive war on the French inhabitants of that town. The latter in- 
struction was carried out fully, by burning the place and taking prisoners the white 
inhabitants, who were afterwards sent as prisoners to Camp Russell and from there 
sent to St. Louis, and discharged some months afterwards. Governor Coles, in a re- 
port made to the Secretary of the Treasury, several years afterward, gives the 
names of these settlers as, Thomas Forsythe, Jacques Mette, P. Larasier (alias 
Chamberlain), Autoine Le Claire, Michael La Croix, Francis Racine, Sr., Francis Racine, 
Jr., Felix Fontaine, Hypolyte Maillet, Francis Banche, heirs of Charles La Belle, An- 
toine La Pance, Antoine Barbonne and Louis Pencenuau. The above list does not in- 
clude women and children, the number of prisoners in the aggregate numbering 75. 

GOVERNOR EDWARDS' CAMPAIGN, 1812. 

On the 18th day of October, Governor Edwards and his army took Tip their 
march. The route was up the west side of Cahokia Creek, thence to the Macoupln, 
which they crossed near the present town of Carlinville, thence in a northwest direc- 
tion, they crossed the Sangamon below the junction of the north and south forks 
east of the present city of Springfield; passing thence east to Elkhart Grove, they 
crossed Salt Creek near the site of the present city of Lincoln; from thence marching 
still northward, they came upon a deserted Kickapoo village on Sugar Creek, which 
they set on fire and destroyed. After this, their course was directed to the head of 
Peoria Lake, where was located the village of Black Partridge, a chief of the Potta- 
wotamies. Having approached within a few miles of the town, Thomas Carlin 
(afterwards Governor of the State), and Robert Stephen and David Whitesides, were 
sent to reconnoiter the enemy, which they successfully accomplished by passing 
through and over the town in the night without discovery. 

Early on the following morning the army, with Captain Judy and his spy com- 
pany in advance, under the cover of a dense fog moved upon the village, but the 
troops becoming entangled in the swamps, the Indians were apprised of their ap- 
proach and fled without fighting or encountering any serious loss. Following the 
fleeing Indians for several miles across the yielding swamps, a small Indian town 
was reached and burned. The Indians having all made good their escape, and no 
news having been received from Governor Hopkins, and a rainy season having set in, 
the Governor deemed it prudent to retire. As Goveror Reynolds quaintly observes 
In his "Own Times," "Our army returned home with all convenient speed."

Although Governor Edwards had several .times during the years of 1811 and 1812 
recommended to the Secretary of War the "enlistment of one or more companies of 
"Rangers," to protect the frontier, and Congress having, in 1811, passed an act 
authorizing the organization of ten companies of rangers, which were afterward organ- 
ized as the 17th United States Regiment, under Colonel William Russell, of Kentucky, 
an Indian fighter of bravery and experience, it does not appear that more than one 
Company was recruited in the Illinois Territory. Davidson and Stuve say in their 
History, in reference to this force: "Four companies were allotted to the defense of 
Illinois, whose respective Captains were Samuel and William B. Whitesides, James 
B. Moore and Jacob Short. Independent Cavalry Companies were also organized for 
the protection of the remote settlements in the lower Wabash country, of which 
Willis Hargraye, William McHenry, Nathaniel Journey, Captain Craig, at Shawnee- 
town, and William Boon, on Big Muddy, were respectively commanders, ready, on 
short notice of Indian outrages, to make nursuit of the depredators." (D. and S. Hist. 
111., p. 249.) We are, however, of the opfnion that there must have been some mis- 
take about the fact alleged of four companies of the 17th Regiment being from Illinois. 
as, of the Captains mentioned, we have evidence that Samuel Whitesides, James B. 
Moore and Jacob Short were commanding Companies of Militia at the time, in the 



324 APPENDIX. 

service of the Governor of the Territory, all belonging to the Regiment which William 
Whiteside, as Lieutenant Colonel, was then commanding (the 2d Regiment Ter. Militia). 
The organization and size of this command appear from a regimental return, on file in 
this office, bearing date of September 16, 1812, which was no doubt made out at Camp 
Russell, signed by Lieutenant Colonel William Whiteside, Commanding, and Elihu 
Mather, Adjutant, and is as follows:

In a morning report, also made at Camp Russell, dated Sept. 12, 1812, "of the troops 
under the command of Major Benjamine Stephenson," we find companies under the 
command of Captains Jaines B. Moore, W. B. Whiteside, Absolem Cox, Jacob Short, 
Willis Hargraves, Samuel Whiteside, Nathaniel Journey and Amos Squires, giving an 
aggregate of 570 men. Two companies on this return, viz.; Absolem Cox's and William 
Hargraves' were probably independent companies or belonged to another regiment, 
and were reported because present at the same post. These returns were both made 
out and signed by A. Whitney, Sergeant-Major, and a penman of no mean ability. 

In another morning report of "troops under the command of Lieut-Col. Whiteside," 
dated Oct. 10, 1812 and also made out by A. Whitney, Sergeant-Major their appears 
companies under the command of Captain N. Ramsey, Thomas E. Craig, Willis Har- 
graves, Absolem Cox and James Trousdale, showing present an aggregate of 316 men. 
A "staff" return on the same blank shows present 1 surgeon, 1 surgeon-mate, 1 Adju- 
tant, 1 Sergeant-Major, and 1 Judge Advocate. At the bottom of this return is the 
following: "N. B. Six company on command, Captain Moors, S. Whltesld, Short, 
Whitesid, N. Jorney, Squires." Of these companies mentioned in these returns we 
have rolls of a part only. These we will now give:

I certify that the foregoing is a correct muster roll of my company, and that they 
were mustered into the service of the United States Saline, on the 14th day of 
October, 1812. 

Examined and approved, DUDLEY WILLIAMS, Capt. 

B. STEPHENSON, Brigade Major. 

Also endorsed by a certificate of Philip Tramell, Lieut. -Col. of the 4th Regiment 
Illinois Militia: "That this company found their own provisions from Christian county 
to the United States Saline and back again, which going and coming may be con- 
sidered 160 miles." 

The foregoing comprises all the rolls of companies which have been preserved in 
this office of those who enlisted during and prior to year 1812. As the rolls of many 
of these Companies of Rangers are no doubt preserved in the archives of the War 
Department at Washington, and their publication would add much to the resources 
of the early history of the State, it is to be hoped that the General Assembly may see 
fit to take some steps to have them transcribed and published. 

As to the other most common means of security for families of the settlers in these 
early days, these consisted of block-house forts, a number of which were built ex- 
tending from the Illinois River to the Kaskaskia, thence to United States Salines, 
near the present town of Equality, and up the Ohio and Wabash rivers, and in nearly 
all settlements in Illinois. Some of these forts were situated as follows: One at the 
site of the present town of Carlyle, one a short distance above the town of Win- 
ston, and two on east side of Shoal Creek, known as Hills and Jones; all these in the 
limits of the present county of Clinton. One on the west side of Looking Glass 
Prairie, a few miles southeast of the present town of Lebanon, was known as 
Chambers' Fort. On the Kaskaskia River were Middleton's and Going's Forts: one 
on Doza Cre_ek, a few miles from its mouth, known as Nat. Hills; two in the Jourdan 
settlement, in the eastern part of Franklin county, on the road from the Kaskaskia 
settlements to the salt works; one at the mouth of the Illinois River, and later John 
Campbell, an United States officer, erected a small block-house on the west bank of 
the Illinois River (at Prairie Marcot), 19 miles above its mouth. Larger forts than 
these were erected opposite the mouth of the Missouri River, to guard the river, and 
on Silver Creek, near Troy. The main fort, however, and military depot of the terri- 
tory, was at Camp Russell, a mile and a half northwest of the present town of 
Edwardsville, in Madison county, in honor of the Colonel, the commander of the Regi- 
ment of Rangers. (D. and S. Hist., pp. 249-250.) This fort was protected by the can- 
non from old Fort Chart res. and under the guns of Louis XIV., under whose pro- 
tecting muzzles the Territorial Governor was wont to organize his expeditions, gather 
his military stores, and rendezvous his recruits under the various calls which the 
necessities of a desultory Indian warfare, of several years' duration, made it obliga- 
tory on his Excellency to make. 

At this fort, besides the rangers and riflemen mentioned in the various rolls 
above given, was also a small company of regular troops, under Capt. X. Ramsey, as 



APPENDIX. 



333 



the return of Lieutenant-Colonel Whiteside on the 10th of October, 1832, hereinbefore 
published, shows to have contained a total of 33 men. This company was the only 
company of regular troops in Illinois Territory, during the war of 1812, which reached 
the headquarters of Governor Edwards, or tested the hospitalities of his fort. 

Among these old rolls we find one of perhaps the most interest, in an historical 
point of view, of any small paper connected with the history of the State. It reads 
as follows:

APPENDIX. 



CAMPAIGN OF 1813. 



Early In this year, the country was put in as good state of defense as circumstances 
would allow. The forts and block-houses were strengthened and the settlers in remote 
and weakly garrisoned block-houses removed to those that were stronger. New com- 
panies of rangers were enlisted and stationed so as to cover the settlements. In ad- 
dition to the regular forts, from the present city of Alton to Kaskas.kia, were twenty- 
two family forts, scattered along. These precautions, however, did not prevent nu- 
merous depredations by the savages. Of these, the following appear to be the most 
important: In Washington county, four miles southeast of Covington (then the county 
seat) on the Kaskaskia River, the family of John Lively, an old ranger (see Alexan- 
der's Company), were attacked, and five persons killed, including Mr. Lively. The 
bodies of all were shockingly mutilated. The Indians who perpetrated this outrage 
were supposed to be Kickapoos, and were followed by Captain Boon and his com- 
pany (see roll), but having four days the start, made good their escape. Near the 
present town of Carlyle a Mr. Young and a minister by the name of McLean were 
attacked by the savages. Young was killed, and McLean made an almost miraculous 
escape by swimming the Kaskaskia River, losing his horse and the greater part of 
his clothing. 

Murders were also committed on Cache river within the present limits of Alex- 
ander county. Near Fort La Motte, about 30 miles above Vincennes, Mrs. Houston 
and four children were killed. In a small prairie near Albion in Edwards county, 
Mr. Boltinghouse was killed. This prairie was afterwards named for him. 

Notwithstanding these, and many other outrages, the general government had pro- 
vided no means for the support of the rangers and militia, and those in the service, 
in Illinois, were discharged on the 9th doy of June by the Governor. 

From a "daily and weekly report of a detachment of rangers of the Illinois 
Territory, under the command of Benjamin Stephenspn, Brigade Major. April 17, 1813," 
we find that the following companies were included in his command: Capt. B. White- 
side's Capt. James B. . Moore's (3d company), Capt. Samuel Whiteside's, Capt. Jacob 
Short's, and Capt. Nicholas Jarrott's. Rolls of Moore's and Short's companies, at that

340 APPENDIX. 

The foregoing company was, no doubt, temporarily called into service to hold the 
forts and protect the government from the Indians until some more definite arrange- 
ment should be made by the War Department to sustain a military force. The fol- 
lowing letter from Governor Edwards to the Secretary of War, will shed some light 
on the subject: 

Elvirade, Randolph County, Illinois Territory, May 4, 1813. 

Sir: A short time ago I received a letter from Colonel Bond, informing me that 
you had authorized him to request me to raise and organize three additional com- 
panies of rangers. I immediately wrote you, that I supposed what had been done 
would be sufficient, and that those three companies who, through me, tendered the 
President their services as rangers, would be accepted. 

They have been notified by me that they have been accepted, but lest some accident 
may have prevented my letters from reaching you, I will here give the names of these 
officers all of whom have been chosen by their companies and approved by me: 

James B. Moore, Captain. 
David Robinson, 1st Lieutenant. 
Arthur Morgan, 2nd Lieutenant. 
John Huitt, Ensign. 
Samuel Whiteside, Captain 
Joseph Borough, 1st Lieutenant. 
Samuel Gilbaur, 2nd Lieutenant. 
' Arthur Armstrong, Ensign. 
Jacob Short, Captain. 
Nathaniel Journey, 1st Lieutenant. 
Andrew Bankston, 2nd Lieutenant. 
John Journey, Ensign. 

These officers and those of the companies raised here last year, are all exceedingly 
anxious to be commanded by Benjamin Stephenson as their major, with the exception 
of an ensign and a lieutenant, who were absent at the time. They have unanimously 
petitioned me on this subject. The privates comprising the battalion are equally de- 
sirous of it, and I can most conscientiously say, that, in my opinion, the territory 
does not admit of a better choice. 

The Legislature of this Territory, at its last session, by the solicitations of cer- 
tain individuals, was induced to ask for this force and to recommend John Murdock 
to be authorized to raise and command it. 

But I beg leave to observe that the force I have raised has been upon a different 
plan altogether. Murdock has not raised a man, and has endeavored to throw every 
impediment in my way. He is not qualified, either by his knowledge or experience, 
for the command, and those who have recommended him will not pretend to say that 
his habits do not form a most important objection. 

I have the honor to be, 

Your obedient servant. 

N. EDWARDS. 
(Edwards' History of Illinois, pp. 374-8.) 

SECOND CAMPAIGN 1813. 

Large numbers of hostile Indians having gathered among the Kickapoos and 
Potawotamies at their villages on Lake Peoria, and Marauding parties from these 
being frequently sent out to harass, rout and kill settlers on the frontiers of both 
Illinois and Missouri, a joint expedition was projected of the militia of both terri- 
tories, to disperse them from their convenient location. An army of 900 men was col- 
lected and placed under the command of Gen. Howard, who had resigned the position 
of Territorial Governor of Missouri for that purpose. The Illinois contingent was ord- 
ered to rendezvous at Camp Russell. 

One company, however, was ordered to a point on the Mississippi called Piasa, 
where they remained several weeks and suffered seriously from sickness. 

The organization of the Illinois troops at Camp Russell was as follow: Colonel, 
Benjamin Stephenson, Randolph county; W. B. Whltesides and John Murdock, Majors, 
and Joseph Phillips, Samuel Judy, Nathaniel Journey and Samuel Whitesides. Cap- 
tains. The Missouri contingent was commanded by Colonel McNair, afterward Gov- 
ernor of that State. Both regiments marched up on their respective sides of the 
Mississippi river, without any adventure, except a slight skirmish by the Illinois troops 
with straggling Indians in search of wild honey in the present limits of Calhoun county. 
A junction was former by the Mlssourians crossing the river at Ft. Mason, 100 miles 
above the mouth of the Illinois river, when General Howard took the principal com- 
mand of the expedition. Passing a recently deserted Indian village on the site of the 
present city of Quincy, they struck out eastward and reached the Illinois river at 
the mouth of Spoon river, not far from the present town of Havana, in Mason county. 

Here the provision boats arrived and took on board their sick. The march was 
continued up the Illinois river to Peoria, where there was a small stockade in charge 
of Capt. Nicholas of the U. S. Army, on which the Indians had two days before made 
an attack, but were repulsed. But the Indians gaining knowledge of the advance of 
this force, had, with their usual cunning, fled northward. Of the conclusion of this 
expedition Davidson and Stuve, say: 



APPENDIX. 64:1 

"The army was marched up the lake to G..MI ', ' - 'i;iag"o, iho :m .<-:tt site of Chill- 
cothe, and finding that the enemy had ascended 'the IJliu.'i* <v inserted villages 
were demolished under the shock of its onset, and -bi\rn-d^ v tehoii j :t 'Wok up its re- 
trogade inarch. At the outlet of the lake, the present; aueiof Peoria, the troops re- 
mained in camp several weeks, building Fort Clark, 'aaiiied in honor of Gen. George 
Rogers Clark. Major Christy in the meantime, was dispatched with a force, in 
charge of two fortified keel boats, up the river (Mississippi) to the foot of the 
rapids, to chastise and rout such of the enemy as might have lodged in that region. 
Major Boone.was sent with a force to scour the Spoon river country, towards Rock 
river. Both expeditions returned without other discoveries than signs of alarm on 
the part of the enemy, and his retreat into the interior. The army returned by a 
direct route to Camp Russell, where the volunteers and militia were disbanded, October 
22, 1813. (D. and S., History Illinois, p. 227.) 

1814. 

The year 1814 was prolific with horrible deeds of savage butchery. The Indians 
were incited by British agents and were active all along the line of the advancing 
frontier. Illinois with her large line of explored settlements suffered severely. We 
will mention only a few of the most aggravated of their outrages. Complied from 
Reynolds Times, and Stuve's History of Illinois. 

In July, a Mrs. Reagan, living in the Wood River settlement six miles east of the 
present city of Alton, with her six children, were murdered by the Indians, who 
were pursued by Capt. Samuel Whiteside and his company of rangers, to the Sanga- 
mon river, where all escaped except the leader, who was shot out of a tree top by 
Capt. Whiteside, with the scalp of Mrs. Reagan fastened to his belt. 

In August, Capt. Short's rangers, who were encamped at the Lively cabins in 
Washington county, discovered the trail of 7 Indians with 14 stolen horses. Capt. 
Short with 30 men followed them overtaking them on a fork of the little Wabash, near 
the east line of Fayette county, and killed them all. The whites lost but one man, 
William O'Neal, who was killed by an adversary quicker than himself. 

The military expeditions in which Illinois participated in this year were by water 
on the Mississippi. The first was that of Governor Clark (in the absence of General 
Howard) which left St. Louis on the 1st of May, composed of 200 men, in five barges 
destined for Prairie de Chieu. 

Dickson, a British agent, had recruited at that place a short time previously, a 
force of 300 Indians for the British army, which he had conducted to Canada, leaving 
a small garrison of 'Maeinoe Fencibles" under the command of a British officer to 
hold the post until his 'return. These Governor Clark had no difficulty in putting 
to flight, and quartering his troops in the house of the Mackaw Fur Company, erected 
a fort which he called Ft. Shelby, and returned in June to St. Louis. But in July a 
large force of British and Indians under Col. Mackey, coming by water from 
Mackinaw, via Green Bay, and the Wisconsin river, after a short siege captured the 
entire garrison, which they paroled, thus leaving the British the gainers of all the 
material advantages of the expedition. 

General Howard having returned to his post in St. Louis in the meantime, and be- 
lieving it desirable to strengthen the fort at Prairie du Chien, to this end sent 108 men 
in charge of Lieutenant Campbell of the regular army, in three keel boats up the 
river, as reinforcements. Of this force 66 men were Illinois rangers under the com- 
mand of Capt. Stephen Rector and Capt. Riggs, who occupied two of the boats. The 
remainder of the force with Campbell occupied the other boat. They passed as far 
as Rock Island, where they laid up for a night without molestation. At the rapids 
great numbers of the Sac and Fox Indians visited the boats with professions of 
friendship, yet gave hints to some of the French boatmen, who accompanied the -ex- 
pedition, that all was not right. Lieut. Campbell, however, disregarded these hints, 
and allowed his force to become .scattered, when a gale blew his boat which was two 
miles in the rear, over towards the Illinois shore to a small island, when it was at- 
tacked by a large force of the Indians from the shore, under the command of Black 
Hawk. 

The strong gale prevented the return of the boats which had eone ahead, and the 
force on Campbell's boat had been mostly killed and wounded. When Rector, throw- 
ing overboard all provisions, with a gallantry deserving of commemoration, came to 
the rescue of the imperiled men and rescued the survivors, and removed the dying and 
all to their vessel, le_aving Campbell's barge to the enemy, the contents of which 
furnished them material for a feast as unusual as it was enjoyable. 

Riggs' boat was for a time surrounded by the enemy, but toward evening the 
wind having become somewhat allayed, the boat, under cover of the approaching 
darkness, and the crew made good their escape without the loss of a single man. 

After the two foregoing disasters still another expedition was projected this sea- 
son for the Upper Mississippi. This latter was fitted up at Cape an Grls, and old 
French hamlet on the bank of the Mississipni. a few miles above the mouth of the 
Illinois. It consisted of 334 men (forty of whom were regulars) in command of 
Major Zaeary Taylor, Nelson Rector and Samuel Whitesides and Captain Hempstead 
being each in command of a lioat. Their principal instruction was to penetrate well 
up in the Indian country and returning to destroy the corn growing within reach on 
both banks of the river down to Rock Island, where they intended to establish a fort 
and leave a permanent garrison.

APPENDIX. 



The expedition passed v.p as far as Hock Island unmolested, although the country 
swarmed with th<> enemy \vh<i vrt."-e aMed by the English, who were then iu com- 
mand, with" ii d'-,; <-|.IMC \i o* eirulars and artillery. On the 23rd day of August, 1814, 
the boats were at :;;,,( l,v t-n combined force of the Indians and English, and turn- 
ing about began to descc MI; the rapids, fighting with great gallantry, the enemy 
pouring in a hot fire into their flanks from both sides of the river. A little way above 
the mouth of the Hock river, near some willow islands, Major Taylor anchored his 
fleet out in the river out of reach of the rifles, but during the night the English 
planted a battery of six pieces of artillery at the water's edge, and landed a consider- 
able force of red skins on the island, to supplement the attack they expected to 
make. But early in the morning Major Taylor, with all his force except 20 men left 
in charge of the boats, with great gallantry charged on the savages and drove them 
with considerable loss from the upper island to the lower one. The fire of the ar- 
tillery had become to be a serious matter with the boats and they dropped out of 
range down the stream. After an ineffectual, though partially successful attempt on 
the part of Capt. Hector to clear the other island of savages, the expedition, 
with a total loss of 11 men wounded of whom 3 afterwards died continued its re- 
treat down the river. On the site of the present town of Warsaw, in Hancock county, 
they erected a fort, which consisted of a rough stockade, and blockhouse of unhewn 
logs, which they named for Governor Edwards. This fort, like Ft. Madison on the 
opposite bank of the river a little higher up was a few weeks after (in October) con- 
sidered untenable the troops being out of provisions and was evacuated and burnt, 
and the expedition continued its retreat to Cape au Gris. 

Thus ended the third and last of these ill-fated expeditions, like its predecessors, 
in defeat and disaster. The rangers and volunteers 'wer dischargd Oct. 18, 1814. 

With the approach of winter the Indian depredations became fewer and finally 
ceased altogether with the peace of Ghent, which closed the war December 24, 1814. 

We subjoin a muster roll of a company of mounted rangers, called into service 
in September, 1814. and which is remarkable as the last body of men enlisted iu this 
State for the war of 1812. 

Muster roll of Captain Daniel Boultinghouse's company of mounted volunteers, 
called into service of the United States by order of his Excellency, Governor Edwards, 
Commander-in-Chief of the Illinois militia, to repel the invasions of the hostile Indians.

ILLINOIS IN THE WAR WITH SPAIN. 



Not since 1847 and 1848 has the United States been forced to measure 
strength with a foreign foe. Not since the Mexican war has it been 
necessary to pit the courage and military ability of the United States 
soldier and sailor against those of a foreign power. It remained for 
Spain to arouse the ire and just resentment of "Uncle Sam' ; and bring 
on a conflict which, for short, sharp and incisive action, can not be paral- 
leled in the history of nations. 

The tragedy of the Maine in the friendly harbor of Havana, Cuba, 
electrified the peoples of the globe with horror and indignation. In the 
United States, amidst the cries for just vengeance could be heard the 
sobs of anguish and distress from the lips of bereaved parents, wives and 
sweethearts. The thunders of a nation's resentment filled the air, while 
millions demanded that full punishment should be meted out to those 
guilty of this wholesale murder. 

On February 17, 1898, while the General Assembly of Illinois was 
convened in extra session, you foresaw the conflict that was to come, and 
sent to the House of Eepresentatives the following message : 

STATE OF ILLINOIS, EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, 

SPRINGFIELD, February 17, 1898. 
To the Honorable, the House of Representatives: 

' The news of the calamity which has overtaken the United States battleship 
Maine and its ill-fated crew fills me with grief and horror, and I assume that 
the General Assembly will, by joint resolution, express the sympathy of the 
people of this State for the gallant dead and wounded of our navy and for 
their surviving relatives. 

I am unwilling to believe that the loss of the Maine was the result of inten- 
tention, and trust that the official investigation ordered by our! government 
may demonstrate that it was due to accidental causes. In view of the uncer- 
tainty which exists as to this point, it would seem that before the Legislature 
adjourns sine die it would authorize the Executive to tender to the President 
of the United States, on behalf of the State of Illinois, whatever moral and 
material support may be necessary in this emergency to maintain the honor of 
the American flag and prevent or punish any attempt at hostile invasion of 
our common country. 

JOHN R. TANNER, Governor. 

In response to which message the following joint resolution was 
adopted by both houses, viz. : 

WHEREAS, The Governor has sent to the Senate a message relating to 1 the 
calamity which has overtaken the United States battleship Maine and the 
crew theron; therefore, be it 

Resolved l>y the Seiwte, the House of Representatives concurring therein, That 
we, the representatives of the people of the State of Illinois, do hereby ex- 



350 ADJTTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

press our sincere appreciation of the services of the gallant dead of our navy, 
and extend to the wounded and all persons affected by this said affair our most 
sincere and profound sympathy. Be it further 

Resolved, That we hereby commend the Governor of this commonwealth for 
his timely and patriotic message, and he is hereby authorized to tender to the 
President of the United States all moral and material support that may be 
necessary in this emergency to maintain the proper dignity of our republic 
and the honor of the American flag. 

Adopted February 17, 1898. 

It will thus be seen that Illinois, through her patriotic Governor, was 
the first of all the Union to assure the President of the United States 
that the moral and material support of a great State was his, that Illi- 
nois, with all her treasures in men and money, with all her wealth of 
patriotic blood, was ready to support him, the honor of our country and 
the flag of our Union. Subsequent events have proven how clear-sighted 
and timely this message was. t 

The war cloud lowering over the nation had assumed dark and 
threatening proportions on April 24th, and it was generally expected 
that the declaration of hostilities and the call for troops would come on 
that day. It was not, however, until between 6 and 7 o'clock p. m., 
April 25th, that I received notice from you to order out the National 
Guard for war service, in response to the following telegram from the 
War Department at Washington, viz. : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., April 25, 1898. 
To the Governor of Illinois: 

The number of troops from your State under the call of the President, 
dated April 23, 1898, will be seven regiments infantry and one regiment 
cavalry- It is the wish of the President that the regiments of the National 
Guard or State Militia shall be used as far as their numbers will permit, for 
the reason that they are armed, equipped and drilled. Please wire me as 
early as possible what equipments, ammunition, arms, blankets, etc., you 
have and what additional you will require. Please also state what troops 
will be ready for muster .into United States service. Details to follow by mail. 

R. A. ALGEK, 
Secretary of War. 

The "details to follow by mail" were as follows : 

WASHINGTON, April 25, 1898. 
To the Governor of Illinois: 

SIR: Under the act of Congress "to provide for temporarily increasing 
the military establishment of the United States in time of war, and for other 
purposes," approved April 22, 1898, and call for 125,000 voluteers, by direc- 
tion of the President I have the honor 1 to request you to provide from your 
State the quota of volunteers, as follows: Seven (7) regiments of infantry 
and 1 regiment of cavalry to serve in the arms of service designated, for 
the period of two years, unless sooner discharged. Attached will be found a 
statement showing the organization for artillery, cavalry and infantry. 

Please cause the Adjutant General of the Army to be informed of the time 
your quota will be atj its rendezvous, as it will be met as soon as practicable 
thereafter by an officer to muster it into the service and pay of the United 
States. 

The mustering officer will be instructed to receive no man, under the rank 
of commissioned officer, who is in years over forty-five or under eighteen, or 
who is not in physical strength and vigor. As soon as mustered into the 
United States service, it is the intention that troops from your State shall be 
assembled with others for instruction and service under the directions of the 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 



351 



Major General commanding the army, at some point or points to be desig- 
nated hereafter. It is desired, for reasons stated in telegram of this date 
that, as far as practicable, the National Guard be given preferences. 

The rendezvous for your State will be Springfield. If, from any cause, it 
is found necessary to change point of concentration, your recommendation is 
requested. 

Bands will be organized from the strength of regiments as in the regular 
army, viz: See paragraph 245, Army Regulations, 1895. 

Very respectfully, 

R. A. ALGEB, Secretary of War.

Immediately upon the receipt of your order I assembled the clerical force 
01 the Adjutant General's office and sent instructions by wire to the com- 
manding officers of the organizations to be mobilized as follows: 



Vol. 9. 25. 



352 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

April 25, 1898. 
General Charles Fitzsimons, AaMand Avenue, Chicago: 

First Brigade will mobilize for war at State Fair Grounds, near Springfield, 
not later than Wednesday noon. All commanders have been notified to move 
on recipt of routing orders from this office. You will come by the Alton. 

J. N. REECE, Adjutant General 

The regimental commanders in Chicago, and regimental and com- 
pany commanders outside of Chicago were routed and instructed by 
similar messages, while railroad officials of roads over which the troops 
were to move were requested to assist the concentration by prompt and 
rapid movement of cars and trains. Transportation orders were mailed 
to the commanding officers at the same time, and at 11 :45 p. m. all mat- 
ter to go by mail was delivered to the railroad postal service on the Alton 
road with the request to send each letter by the quickest possible route 
to its destination. While this work was in progress I placed myself in 
telephone communication with wholesale grocers, bakers and butchers, 
urging them to increase their working forces so that subsistence storey 
of all kinds could be at the State Fair Grounds by noon, Wednesday, for 
at least 6,000 men. 

Recognizing that blankets and garrison equipage additional to what 
the State possessed would be required at once, I wired, by your direc- 
tion, Capp's Sons, Jacksonville; Ipavia, 111., Mills; T. W. Chaffee, Chi; 
eago, and others as to number and price of blankets they could furnish ; 
and Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co. as to knives, forks, spoons, cups, 
plates and other camp and garrison equipage. I also wired Mr. Funk, 
President Board of Agriculture, (who had kindly tendered to you the 
use of the State Fair Grounds), to be present on the arrival' of the 
troops, if possible. I requested the presence of Mr. Funk, so that the 
State Board would know the exact condition of the buildings and grounds 
when the State troops took possession of them. 

On April 25 and 26 you sent the following two telegrams to the Secre- 
tary of War : 

SPKINGFIELD, ILL., April 26, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.\ 

Seven regiments of Infantry and one regiment of Cavalry completes ren- 
dezvous at Springfield, at noon, Wednesday, April twenty-seventh. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 
Governor. 

And 

APRIL 25, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

Estimated equipments required for Illinois quota, four thousand blankets, 
four thousand complete uniforms, two thousand woven (web) belts, and all 
camp and garrison equipage, also arms and equipments for the cavalry. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 
Governor. 

In order that the troops mobilized in twenty-four hours might havo 
the necessary bedding required by the raw and inclement weather, and 
to be absolutely sure of the desires of the National Government relative 
to the equipping of the volunteers, the following telegram was sent April 
26, on the same subject: 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 353 

SPRINGFIELD, ILL., April 26, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Washington, D. G.\ 

Can you send us blankets at once, about two or three thousand, or will Illi- 
nois buy them on account of the National Government? Please answer quick. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 
Governor. 

In reply to this inquiry the following reply was received : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., April 26, 1898. 
John R. Tanner, Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

I am instructed by the Secretary of War to state in reply to your telegram 
of this date that no blankets or other property can legally be furnished until 
the troops are mustered into the United States service when they will be sup- 
plied as early as practicable. 

[Signed] LUDINGTON, 

Quartermaster General. 

Upon receipt of this decision by the War Department, and following 
your instructions, I redoubled my efforts to secure blankets in open 
market for our troops, and, although the limited number of blankets 
in the market having nearly all been purchased by agents of the Govern- 
ment, I was successful in procuring some thousands of pairs which were 
issued to the regiments needing them. 

On April 27, or within 36 hours after the receipt by you of the order 
to mobilize the Illinois National Guard, you sent the following message : 

SPRINGIFELD, ILL., April 27, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

Seven regiments of infantry and one of cavalry are mobilized at Spring- 
field. Approximate strength, eight thousand. Await further orders. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 
Governor. 

On the same date (April 27) the following was received: 

WASHINGTON, D. C., April 27, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

The following decision of the Secretary of War of this date is communi- 
cated for your information: "All absolutely necessary expenses for the sub- 
sistence, trasportation, sheltering and generally the maintainence of volun- 
teers during the interval between- their enrollment (enlistment) and their 
muster (or being sworn) into the service of the United States, also all inci- 
dental expenses connected threwith, such as the hire of offices, clerks, mes- 
sengers, etc., for mustering officers will be met by the Government of the 
United States from the proper appropriation at the disposition of the several 
staff departments of the army. Certified vouchers for all expenditures herein 
authorized will be forwarded to the War Department for audit and payment. 
The vouchers should be certified by officers of the proper staff departments 
and approved by the mustering officers. 

[Signed] H. C. CORBIN, 

Adjutant General. 

In view of the fact that Illinois had no representation in the artillery 
branch of the service, and the eager desire of our batteries to go to the 
front, your energetic action, to include the artillery in the first call, was 
rewarded with success as shown by this message : 



354 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

WASHINGTON, D. C., April 29, 1898. 
Governor Tanner, Springfield, III.: 

Secretary of War authorizes, in addition to your quota of seven regiments 
of infantry and one regiment of cavalry, that you may furnish one six gun 
battery of light artillery, organized as per instructions mailed on the 25th. 

[Signed] H. C. CORBIN, 

Adjutant General. 

In conformity with this authority Battery A, (Danville) Captain 
Philip Yeager, commanding, and equipped with modern breech-loading 
3-2 inch guns, was ordered to report at Camp Tanner, April 30, for the 
purpose of being mustered into the United States volunteer service. 

On April 27th, Adjutant General Corbin forwarded the request of 
the Secretary of War for you to designate two civilian physicians, to 
constitute (with one army surgeon to be detailed) a medical board, for 
the examination of medical officers to be commissioned surgeons and as- 
sistant surgeons in the Illinois Volunteers. On this board you appointed 
Dr. Nichols Senn of Chicago and Dr. Charles C. Carter from Eock 
Island. 

Originally, Captain Eben Swift, 5th U. S. Cavalry, was detailed as 
mustering officer for the Illinois volunteers, but he was speedily succeed- 
de by Captain Cyrus S. Eoberts, 17th U. S. Infantry, while 1st Lieuten- 
ant Charles C. Ballou, 12th U. S. Infantry, was the quartermaster, and 
2d Lieutenant George W. Cole, 7th U. S. Cavalry, the commissary officer 
at Camp Tanner. 

The camp itself was placed under the command of Brigadier General 
James H. Barkley, Illinois National Guard, with Lieutenant Colonel J. 
Mack Tanner as post adjutant. The report of the post commander 
is attached hereto and marked "E." Your own headquarters were moved 
from the State House to the Dome Building at Camp Tanner, in order 
that the needs and wants of the troops might be speedily known and 
rapidly met. 

Brigadier General Charles Fitzsimons and staff and Brigadier General 
Andrew Welch and staff were also on duty at Camp Tanner, giving aid 
and advice to their respective regiments, troops and battery during the 
mobilization. 

On May 1 you made an effort to have Battery B, (Galesburg), equipp- 
ed with Gatling guns, included in the first call from this State, but the 
War Department declined to increase the quota from Illinois, and for 
this reason this battery, with detachments from the signal troops and en- 
gineer company were compelled to remain.at home in the State military 
service. I desire here to bear testimony that the officers and men of the 
organizations named persistently pursued every honorable method within 
their power to be included in the volunteers from this State, and that it 
was only as the result of the peremptory refusal on the part of the Xa- 
tional Government to accept additional troops, that they did not go to 
the front with their more fortunate comrades. 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 355 

On May 3, in order to obtain a clear understanding of the desires of 
the Government, you sent the following message : 

SPRINGFIELD, May 3, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

Am I expected to turn aver uniforms, arms and equipments, now in 
possession of Illinois organizations, to the general government. If yes, will 
prepare invoices. Please wire detailed instructions. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 

Governor. 
This inquiry was answered by Adjutant General Corbin by this mes- 



WASHINGTON, D. C., May 4, 1898. 
Governor Tanner, Springfield, Illinos: 

In reply to your telegram to the Secretary of War you are expected to turn 
over to the general government uniforms in possession of the Illinois organi- 
zations, and the arms and equipments will have to be for the time being 
(also), and requisitions should follow to replace these in order that you may 
maintain the arms of the National Guard in your State should you so desire. 

H. C. CORBIN, 
Adjutant General. 
Following this came a call for tents : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 5, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

Kindly inform me number and kind of tents you can loan or sell to quarter- 
master department with view to their immediate use by the volunteers now 
being mustered in. The question of return or compensation for this property 
will be made by this office on terms of equity. Give us all possible. 

R. A. ALGER, 
Secretary of War. 

In compliance with these two messages and your orders I at once took 
the necessary steps to turn over with each regiment all classes of the 
stores and equipage mentioned, to the United States in order that the 
volunteers from Illinois might take the field as fully and thoroughly 
equipped as it was possible for the State to supply them. 

In obedience to your instructions I entered the market for campaign 
hats, leggins, shoes and ponchos, and as rapidly as these articles could be 
obtained they were issued to the troops. 

It must be remembered that, the United States and every State in the 
Union, were buying clothing and equipments for their troops; that 
the amount of these articles that were on hand had been purchased at the 
first intimation of war, and that now it was conceded to be almost an ac- 
commodation on the part of the manufacturer to listen to proposals of 
any kind. By sending agents to Chicago and St. Louis, this depart- 
ment picked up enough hats, leggins, shoes, ponchos and blankets, to not 
only relieve the most pressing needs of the troops, but to fit them out fair- 
ly well for practical field service. 

On May 7th you received the following telegram : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 7, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinoix, Springfield, 111.: 

It is the intention to order to Camp George H. Thomas, Chickamauga 
National Park, Georgia, the first two regiments of Infantry of your State, 



356 ADJUTANT GENERAI/S REPORT. 

which shall first be completely equipped. Every effort should be exerted to 
complete as fast as possible each regiment in turn, rather than all simultane- 
ously. Report by telegraph when first regiment will be ready. It is the inten- 
tion also to order one regiment of Cavalry and one light battery to Camp 
Thomas. 

R. A. ALGER, 
Secretary of War. 

And on May 9th the following telegram demonstrated that even the 
National Government could not purchase or manufacture equipment? as 
rapidly as the exigency of the times demanded them : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 9, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

Referring to my telegram of May 7th, we wish everything you can furnish, 
as the Government is going to have hard work to equip its troops in time for 
service. Please have inventory of State property furnished with view to its 
return; or accounting for. The organizations to be equipped for Chica- 
mauga should have everything required for field service, arms, ammunition, 
accoutrements, camp equipage, tentage, etc. 

R. A. ALGEK, 
Secretary of War. 

Upon receipt of this advice, and by your orders, I redoubled my efforts 
to secure such additional clothing and equipage as were not habitually is- 
sued to our National Guard, and were required for the volunteers. Your 
expressed desire to assist the National Government with all your power 
and resources to bring the Illinois volunteers under National control at 
the earliest practical day, served as an incentive to labor night and day to 
all connected with this department to carry your wishes into effect. 

On May 9th, the following telegram, changing the intended destina- 
tion of the first Illinois regiments from Chickamauga to New Orleans, 
La., was received : 
The Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

Referring to my telegram of May 7th, you are informed that, owing to 
changed conditions, the destination of troops of your State mentioned therein, 
has been changed from Camp George H. Thomas, Georgia, to New Orleans, 
La., and will be sent there, provided your troops are uniformed, armed and 
equipped, ready for service. 

R, A. ALGEK, 

Secretary of War. 
And on May 10, you wired your reply, as follows : 

SPRINGFIELD, May 10, 1898. 
Hon. Russell A. Alger, Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

Replying to your message of the 9th inst., will say that I have two regi- 
ments of infantry, the Third, and Fifth uniformed, armed, and ready for ser- 
vice by noon Thursday, the twelfth. I have advised your Quartermaster, 
Lieutenant Ballou, to arrange for transportation to New Orleans, and your 
Commissary, Lieutenant Davis, to provide travel rations. Is this correct? 

JONH R. TANNEB, 

Governor 

And on the same date you informed the Secretary of War that Battery 
A was ready for service : 

SPRINGFIELD, ILL., May 10, 1898. 
Hon. Russell A. Alger, Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

The battery of artillery is recruited to its maximum and ready to be sworn 
into the service. The equipment consists of four pieces, three two-tenth inch 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 357 

breach loaders, everything complete except horses. The cavalry regiment 
has no horses. Shall I interpret your former telegrams of May 7th and 9th 
to authorize or direct me to equip battery and cavalry with horses and ac- 
coutrements complete? If so will my vouchers be accepted by the govern- 
ment? 

JONH R. TANNER, 

Governor 
On May 10th the Secretary of War wired you again: 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 10, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

It is now desirable that two regiments of Infantry of your State as soon 
as mustered, filled and equipped, be sent to Mobile. Please inform me when 
it will be possuble for your troops to move. If not fully equipped, but suffi- 
ciently so to travel it may be considered best to have them go and complete 
eQuippment, etc., at Mobile. A detailed statement of the situation as to your 
troops is requested as soon as it is possible for you to give it. 

R. A. ALGER, 
Secretary of War. 
To which you replied as follows.: 

' SPRINGFIELD, May 11, 1898. 
Hon. Russell A. Alger, Secretary of War, Washington, D. C.: 

I advised you by wire yesterday that the Third and Fiftih Illinois Volunteer 
Regiments of Infantry would be equipped for service and ready to move by 
tomorrow, (Thursday) noon, and that I had suggested to your Quartermaster, 
Lieutenant Ballou, and your Commissary, Lieutenant Davis, to advise with 
you in relation to transportation and travel rations. I have no reply to the 
message. You can safely arrange transportation accordingly. 

JONH R. TANNER, 

Governor. 

On the same date you acknowledged receipt of the telegram from the 
Secretary of War of May 10, informing you that the War Department 
would require two regiments to go to Mobile, and asked to be informed 
if "the two regiments referred to are in addition to the two regiments 
destined for New Orleans as previously ordered," and added "If yes, the 
troops for Mobile can be ready to move next Saturday, not fully equipped, 
but sufficiently so to travel. The Battery of Artillery is sworn into ser- 
vice: The equippment consists of four pieces, two three two-tenth 
inch breech loaders, everything complete except horses. The Third and 
Fifth, destined for New Orleans, will be ready to move tomorrow, Thurs- 
day, noon. The Second, Seventh and Fourth have not yet been examined 
by the medical officers, and I will be unable to fully equip more than one 
of the three for service, for the reason that we can not find the supplies 
in the market just now, but hope to equip them within a week or ten 
days," and on the same date (May 11) the Secretary of War informed 
you that the Cavalry regiment would be supplied with horses by the 
Quartemaster Department. 

On May llth you also sent the following message relative to the 
numerical designation of the volunteer regiments from the State, viz : 



358 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

Honorable Russell A. Alyer, "Secretary of TVa/ - ," Washington, D. C., 

It is the desire of the Illinois National Guard and its friends throughout 
the State to begin numbering the regiments for the present war with number 
one instead of beginning where we left off in the war of the rebellion. I con- 
cur with thisi sentiment and shall so number Illinois regiments unless object- 
tionable to your department. Please answer. 

JONII R. TANNER, 

Governor. 
To which the following reply was received : ' 

WASHINGTON, D. C. ( May 15, 1898. 
Governor John R. Tanner, ><i>ri>i</ field, 111.: 

Secretary of War has no objections to your numbering Illinois regiments as 
suggested in your telegram of yesterday. Please inform mustering officer." 

[Signed] SCIIWAN, 

Asst. Adjt. General. 

In order that no more time might be lost in equipping the organiza- 
tions at Camp Tanner, and to facilitate their movement to the front you 
sent the following dispatch to Washington on May 12 : 

SPRINGFIELD, ILL., May 12, 1898. 
Secretary of War, Was-Jitnylon, D. C.: 

If Illinois is to fully equip volunteers following articles must be shipped im- 
mediately from United States Arsenals: Fifteen hundred bayonet scabbards, 
twelve hundred field belts and plates, one thousand blanket bags and straps, 
twelve hundred haversacks and straps, twelve hundred canteens and straps 
and one thousand meat cans. Answer if you can ship. 

JONII R. TANNER, 

Governor. 

On May 12th Colonel Culver, 5th Infantry reported his regiment ready 
to take the cars for the front in the following communication, viz : 

CAMP TANNEE, ILL., May 12, 1898. 
Brigadier General Jasper N. Keei-e, Adjutant General: 

SIR: I have the honor to report the 5th Infantry ready to move: their 
equipments and uniforms complete in every detail, as ordered by the Com- 
mander-in-Chief, the necessary receipts or vouchers for which by this time 
are in your possession; the regiment at its full maximum strength, completely 
armed and equipped for United States service. It is respectfully suggested 
that in anticipation of moving today at twelve o'clock, our camp is practically 
broken, our camp equippage practically packed, and it is necessary that the 
question of transportation be settled in some definite form on the lines that 
we may either move promptly or make arrangements for remaining longer at 
Camp Tanner. 

Very respectfully. 
[Signed] J. S. CULVER, 

Colonel Com'dy 5th Infantry. 

This report was promptly transmitted, by wire to the Secretary of: 
War. 

The following was received from Washington same date : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 12, 1898. 
The Governor of Illinois, Kprhiyfleld, III.: 

Secretary of War bids me inform you the United States mustering officers 
have been instructed to report all regiments mustered into the United States 
service, full name of Colonel commanding, to what extent lacking in arms, 
ammunition, uniforms, clothing, equipment and tentage, and that from the 
moment of muster into United States service organizations will cease to be 
under orders of State authorities, and! that orders for their disposition, 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 359 

transportation and supplies will be controlled by the war department alone. 
The Colonels and commanding officers of separate organizations will be in- 
structed by the mustering officer to report by telegraph to the Adjutant Gen- 
eral of the army immediately after muster in. Please acknowledge receipt. 

H. C. CORBIN, 
Adjutant General. 

In acknowledgment of the receipt of this message, you wired as fol- 
lows: 

SPRINGFIELD, ILL., May 13, 1898. 
Hon. H. C. Corltin, Adjutant General, Washington, D. C.: 

Your message of the 12th inst is received. Shall I construe language fol- 
lowing sentence strictly? "From moment of muster into the United States 
service, etc., and that orders for their disposition, transportation and supplies 
will be controlled by the war department alone." If so, it seems that I am 
stopped from completing, equipment of Sixth, First and Second Regiments 
now mustered into the United States service, and am expected to turn them 
over as they are to the Government. I am anxious to work in harmony with, 
to obey all orders and to assist your department in every possible way in the 
speed equipment of Illinois troops. This message applies only to the two 
words, "moment" and "supplies" contained in your telegram of this date. 

We found the government in the market for supplies everywhere. We 
have telegraphed all supply houses in the country for needed supplies. We 
have already purchased everything in the market, and have taken options, so 
far as we could get them, to be furnished within ten days, but on the strength 
of your telegram I have this morning cancelled all options and contracts that 
were voidaJble. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 

Governor. 

A copy of this and the preceding message was also sent, by your 
direction, to Senator Cullom, to which you added the following explana- 
tory remarks: "The Fifth and Third Regiments are equipped for war 
and are awaiting orders to move since Thursday noon. The Sixth, First 
and Second Regiments have been mustered into the service but are not 
fully equipped. We found the Government in the market in advance in 
the supply houses of the country. By my direction General Reece tele- 
graphed every supply house in the country from Boston to Omaha, and 
purchasd everything on hand in lots from a dozen hats to two hundred 
leggings and three hundred blouses, and upwards, that could be found. 
We took options so far as we could get them, to be delivered in ten days, 
parhaps sufficient to supply the seven regiments." 

"Upon receipt of the above message I wired Adjutant General Corbin 
that a fair construction of the language of his message would stop me 
from further supplying the regiments mustered in, and that I had can- 
celled all options and voidable contracts; that I was anxious to assist the 
Government in every way possible in the early equipment of Illinois 
troops, and ready to work in harmony with and obey all orders, etc. I 
am more anxious than I can express to get Illinois troops to the front 
early, that our State may participate in the battles and glory of driving 
Spain from Cuba and Porto Rico, but it seems to me that our State is not 
receiving that prompt consideration from the war department that it 
deserves. I wish you would go at once to General Alger and have a talk 
with him. Say to him that I am anxious to work in harmony with and 
to assist him every way possible." 



360 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

On May 13 the following message was received : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13, 1898. 
Hon. John R. Tanner, Camp Tanner, Springfield, III.: 

Your telegram of -1:20 p. m. is just received. It is not the desire of the 
department that you shall discontinue the furnishing, and the equippment, 
and the provisioning of the volunteers from your State. The telegram of last 
night was intended to draw the lines where the State authority was surrend- 
ered to the United States. 

The desire is, of course, that the most friendly and cordial relations shall 
be maintained and that we aid each other in every possible way, and it is 
hoped that you will accept the order of last night in the spirit in which it 
was intended. Chickamauga has been designated as the point where the troops 
service in the very near future. "You can expect orders for the troops from 
your State at a very early hour possibly today. 

H. C. CORBIN, 
Adjutant General. 

And immediately after this the following, from the Secretary of War : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13, 1898. 
Governor John R. Tanner, Springfield, III.; 

Two regiments of infantry of your State, having been mustered into the 
service, will be ordered today to proceed to Chicamauga, Georgia. It is 
desired that the State authorities furnish all supplies possible in way of 
clothing, camp and garrison equippage, and all appurtenances for a soldier in 
the field, including tents, which are needed. On arrival at Chickamauga 
thesie troops, with those of other States, will be thoroughly equipped and 
moved to the front. This was found to be better than the attempt [to] 
thoroughly equip the regiments at the State rendezvous. Ordnance, Quarter- 
master and Subsistance Departments are concentrating at Chattanooga, Tenn. 
Supplies to meet situation. 

R. A. ALGER, 
Secretary of War. 

And then this message : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13, 1898. 
Governor John R. Tanner, Springfield, III.; 

Senator Cullom has just brought your telegram of today to me. The in- 
structions about the government assuming charge of all troops as soon as 
mustered were sent alike to all Governors. We want to get Illinois to the 
front just [as] rapidly as possibly, and are transporting equipments as nearly 
alike as possible to all states and are doing our utmost to get them to the 
front. We may send many troops to Chattanooga to finish up their equip- 
ment as we are sending large supplies there, which we could not so promptly 
send to the States. I assure you we are doing everything we can for your 
State. I hope the two regiments ordered today are en rout to Chickamauga, 
and that others will follow soon, for which orders will be given. 

R. A. ALGER, 
Secretary of Win: 

Immediately after the receipt of the preceding messages, the first order 
to move an Illinois regiment was received : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13, 1898. 
Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

Orders have been issued in telegraph, Colonel J. S. Culver, commanding 
Fifth Illinois Volunteers, to proceed at once with his regiment to Camp 
George H. Thomas, Chickamauga National Park, Georgia. 

H. C. COKHIN, 
Adjutant General. 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 361 

The regimental commanders received their orders to move direct from 
the War Department, and departed from Camp Tanner in compliance 
with such orders, when received. 

On May 16th, the following inquiry was sent from Washington: 
What regiments of your State are mustered and ready to move? 

H. C. CORBIN, 
Adjutant General, 
To which I was directed to send this reply : 

CAMP TANNER, ILL., May 16, 1898. 
Adjutant General U. 8. A., Washington, D. C.: 

First Infantry leaves for Chickamauga tomorrow morning. Sixth and 
Second mustered and waiting orders to move. 
Battery A is mustered, but no horses. All partially equipped. 

J. N. REECE, 
Adjutant General. 

In view of the fact that the mobilization of the troops under the first 
call of the President of the United States was nearly completed, this de- 
partment, under your orders, and without delay took up the question of 
effecting a settlement of incurred bills and expenditures made by the 
State on account of the volunteer troops of the United States in aiding 
the National Government in the war with Spain with this 
end in view you wired the Secretary of War, as follows : 

SPRINGFIELD, May 21, 1898. 
Secretary of War, WasJiinyton, D. C.: 

In the mobilization of Illinois volunteers for war, I directed contracts for 
their subsistence to be made on the lowest figures obtainable. The muster in 
of two battalions of cavalry today, places at your orders the last of the quota 
called from Illinois. To facilitate ttie adjustment of accounts I would respect- 
fully suggest that the number of rations issued to soldiers and recruits, as 
shown by the consolidated ration returns, and as corroborated by the con- 
solidated morning reports of Camp Tanner, be accepted as a basis, and that 
the cost of the ration issued be figured at the rate of twenty-seven and one- 
half cents a ration. The actual cost of the issues made to the men will ex- 
ceed this figure by several thousand dollars, which excess will be paid by the 
State. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 

Governor 

No reply having been received to this proposition on the 23d, you re- 
peated the message on the 24th and added : 

"To, this dispatch no answer has yet been received. May I request your 
early consideration of the matter so that my Adjutant General may prepare 
the vouchers for certification by the acting subsistence officer on duty, as 
required under your former instruction." 

To which second message the Secretary of War sent the following 
reply : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 24, 1898. 
Hon. John- R. Tanner, Syrinyficld, III.: 

War Department accepts your proposition that number of rations issued to 
soldiers and recruits, as shown by consolidated ration returns and corrobor- 
ated by consolidated morning reports of State rendezvous (Camp Tanner) as 
a basis of settlement between the State and the United States, and that the 
cost of ration be figured at the rate of twenty-seven and one-half cents per 
ration. This to be in full settlement of all claims against the government by 
the State of Illinois for subsisting quota of troops furnished by that State. 

R. A. ALGKK, 
Secretary of War. 



362 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

With the basis as outlined in the preceding message, I proceeded to 
make out the various claims for transportation, subsistence, quarter- 
masters' supplies, clothing, equipage, forage, fuel, straw, medical stores, 
etc., in the prescriped form, secured on each claim the indorsement of the 
mustering officer and forwarded same to the War Department for audit 
and settlement on June 13 and 24, 1898. 

The question having arisen among the volunteer officers in southern 
camps as to the date from which these officers should properly rank, the 
matter was submitted to the War Department for its decision and the 
following message received in reply, should set at rest any controversies 
on the subject : 

Governor JoJin It. Tanner, Springfield, IU.: 

WASHINGTON, May 25, 1898. 

Secretary of War directs me to say in reply to your telegram this date 
that he has decided that volunteer officers of same grade rank according to 
date of muster into United States , service. Where commissions of such 
officers bear same date relative rank is determined by previous length of 
United States military service under commission, and in absence of such 
service by lot. Secretary considers it very desirable that commissions bear 
same date as muster into service. H. C. CORBIN. 

Adjutant General. 

In view of the fact that the commissions given Illinois volunteer offi- 
cers were dated from dates of muster into the United States volunteer 
service, and as a matter of equity and justice to all officers involved, 
the dating of rank of all commissions given all volunteer officers 
by governors should be made mandatory in conformity with the fore- 
going decision. 

Referring to the opposition on the part of the War Department to ac- 
cept the regiments from this State as organized under our military code, 
I quote herewith an extract from section 3, H. R. 9878, House of Repre- 
sentatives, National Congress, "Section 3. That upon a declaration of 
war by Congress, or a declaration of Congress that war exists the enlisted 
strength of a company, troop and battery, respectively, may, in the dis- 
cretion of the President, be increased to comprise not exceeding, for each 
company of infantry : 

One first sergeant, one quartermaster-sergeant, four sergeants, twelve 
corporals, two musicians, one artificer, one wagoner, and eighty-four 
privates; total enlisted, one hundred and six: Provided, that in the event 
of a call by the President for either volunteers or the militia of th? 
country the President is authorized to accept the quotas of troops of the 
various States and Territories., including the District of Columbia, as 
organized under the laws of the States and Territories,, including the Dis- 
trict of Columbia." 

The regiments in the Illinois Xational Guard, as organized under the 
laws of this State, are comprised of one colonel, one lieutenant-colonel, 
three majors (one for each battalion), one adjutant, one quartermaster, 
one inspector of rifle practice, and one Chaplain, each with the rank of 
captain, three battalion adjutants each with the rank of 1st lieutenant, 
and twelve companies, assigned into three battalions. 



AMERICAN- SPANISH WAR. 863 

The medical officers are assigned with regiments for duty, and hold 
rank as majors, captains or 1st lieutenants. While your efforts retained 
for our regiment the majors, battalion adjutants and the battalion non- 
commissioned staff, the mustering officers did not accept or muster in the 
inspectors of rifle practice. 

Under the first call of the President of the United States for volun- 
teer troops from the various states, the regiments from Illinois were 
mustered into the United States service in the following order: 

(1) The 5th Infantry, 111. X. G., May 7, 1898. 

(2) The 3d infantry, 111. X. G., May 7, 1898 (10:30 p. in.) 

(3) The 6th Infantry, 111. X. G., May 11, 1898. 

(4) Battery A, 111. X. G., May 12, 1898. 

(5) The 1st Infantry, 111. X. G., May 13, 1898. 

. (6) The 2d Infantry, 111. X. G., May 16, 1898. 

(7) The 7th Infantry, 111. X. G., May 18, 1898. 

(8) The 4th Infantry, 111. X. G., May 20, 1898. 

(9) The 1st Cavalry, May 21, 1898. 

And the commissions of the officers were made to correspond with 
these dates, except in the case of the 3d Infantry, where the commissions 
of field and staff were dated Ma} r 8th, for the reason that these officers 
were mustered after the business day of the 7th, and near the first hours 
of- the 8th, and to prevent any future disputes as to the seniority of the 
commanding officers, or the priority of the muster in. 

In summing up the work of mobilizing the Illinois troops for the 
volunteer service of the Xational Government under the first call of the 
President, I desire to emphasize that the soldiers tendered by the State 
were above the average in intelligence, activity and ability; that a rigid 
physical examination before muster proved them sound, healthy, and ful- 
ly fit for field service ; that their patriotic zeal to get to the front and in 
close contact with the enemy was unbounded ; that no effort was left un- 
tried on your part to get the organizations to the field of active service ; 
that the regimen ts had more equipage than was carried by the veterans of 
the Civil War in 1864 and 1865, when the hard-bought experiences of 
three years service in the field and on the march had demonstrated to 
them what should and what should not be carried by them to insure com- 
fort and efficiency ; that the commissioned officers had, through their ex- 
perience in the Xational Guard service, acquired the necessary knowledge 
to ably and rightly govern and direct their men ; that the medical depart- 
ment, offered by surgeons selected by Surgeon-General Senn, (conceded 
to be one of the ablest medical directors and surgeons in the world), was 
inferior to no sii lilar department in the volunteer service; that the only 
call for egetablos, etc., made by our troops at Chickamauga was prompt- 
ly heeded and responded to and, in short, that the personal, arms and 
equipments, and i he general efficiency of the Illinois troops, as tendered 



364 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

to the United states, was highly creditable to the State and its executive. 
I am constrained to make the above remarks owing to the most absurd 
falsehoods published in some of the sensational papers in the State in 
which the hatred and venom of the "copperhead" of 1864-5 predominate. 
Men and papers who failed in patriotism in this hour of trial, who, with- 
out the necessary "sand" to go to the front themselves, were cowardly 
enough to attack every National and State policy, endeavoring to create 
discord between officers and men, deriding the efforts and acts of every 
commander, inciting soldiers and civilians alike to opposition against 
the heoric leaders at the National and State Capitols in their splendid ef- 
forts to avenge the killing of our sailors on the Main, thereby discrediting 
our glorious flag, and all on account of spite, hatred and jealousy, be- 
cause golden, sun-crowned success was being achieved without their ad- 
vice or assistance. 

The roster of all officer and enlisted men, who entered the U. S. Volun- 
teer service, as shown by the original muster-in-roll, is attached hereto 
and marked "F." 

As an evidence of the truth of the foregoing statement, and to show 
how little credence the soldier at the front placed in the sensational 
articles published by portions of the press, I here insert a telegram of 
confidence and thanks sent you by the officers of the 5th Illinois Volun- 
teer Infantry, on the publication of the most scurrilous lies regarding 
their action after the third disappointment in their effort to go to the 
front, which lies you had promptly denied, and publicly proclaimed your 
faith and confidence in the honor and integrity of your troops : 

CHICKAMAUGA PARK, GA., July 30, 1898. 
Eon. John R. Tanner, Governor of Illinois, Springfield, III.: 

We thank you in behalf of the 1,300 men we command for your prompt 
expression of confidence in the 5th and denial of sensational lies of an irre- 
sponsible reporter. This regiment is the same loyal, obedient and disciplided 
regiment it has ever been. No orders have been disobeyed, every duty has 
been performed promptly and cheerfully. Colonel Culver has our loyal 
obedience, confidence and respect. Men and officers are disheartened and 
discouraged at treatment they can not understand and the responsibility for 
which they can not place; but they are soldiers and aside from the charge of 
taking about twenty dollars' worth from hucksters by stragglers on the 
march, there is not even a shadow of foundation for the sensational lies sent 
to the press from here. We want you to use every effort to put us back in 
our just place in the Porto IRican expedition. 

Frank P. Wells, Lieutenant Colonel 5th 111. Inf.; J. C. Cabanis, Major 5th

Early in June, the government having decided to fill every organiza- 
tion to its maximum, officers were detailed from all Illinois regiments to 
visit their home stations and there recruit each company to the desired 
number from the neighborhood where the company was originally organ- 
ized. 

As soon as this decision was learned, you wired Secretary Aiger as 
follows : 

May 28, 1898. 

There will be no trouble or delay in furnishing 1 two thousand six hundred 
men to fill to the maximum the organizations already in service from Illinois, 
but I suggest the quickest and* most satisfactory way to do this will be to 
authorize the colonel of each regiment to detail a lieutenant colonel or major 
to proceed to Illinois for this purpose, who could fill each company from its 
town or locality. Please instruct me on this. 

JOHN R. TANNER, 

This suggestion was virtually adopted by the War Department and as 
a result of these recruiting details, Illinois sent, approximately, two 
thousand, six hundred additional volunteers to the front. 

On July 30, you received the following "plea for justice." 

ClIICKAMAUGA PARK, GA. 

Governor John R. Tanner: 

Press the War Department to restore the Fifth in its place in the Porto 
Rican expedition and deny the sensational press lies of insubordination. The 
officers and enlisted men look to and trust you to do what we can not do 
ourselves. 

J. S. CULVER, 
5th Infantry. 

To your request that, in justice to the regiment, it be restored to its 
place in the brigade going to Porto Rico, you received the following 
telegram : 

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 30, 1898. 
Governor John R. Tanner, Springfield, III.; 

Replying to your telegram asking that the Fifth Illinois Volunteer Infantry 
be sent to Porto Rico you are informed that it was no fault of the regiment, 
or anyone connected with it, that it was not sent. The facts are that the 
First, Third and Sixth regiments of Illinois volunteers were ordered to 
active service when it was noted by the Department that other states had 
none, notably your neighbor, Indiana. In view of this fact the commanding 
general at Chickamaugua was ordered to substitute an Indiana for an Illinois 
regiment, and in the exercise of this discretion he selected the Fifth. This 
may be and doubtless is a hardship for the regiment. It had to be done, 
however, to give scant justice to the State of Indiana, and you will say it is 
but fair. H. C. CORBIN, 

Adjutant General. 
THE SECOND CALL. 

The quota of troops to be furnished by Illinois under the second 
call of the President of the United States was two regiments of infantry. 
In response to this call you directed Majo'r John E. Marshall to bring 



366 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

the 9th Battalion Illinois National Guard, with eight additional com- 
panies of colored infantry to Camp Tanner for the purpose of being 
mustered into the volunteer service of the 8th Illinois Infantry. 

For the 9th Illinois Volunteer Infantry you selected the provisional 
regiment organized by Colonel James K. Campbell, who had been the 
first to file a complete regimental roster at your office, you having pre- 
viously given notice that you would accept regiments for volunteer service 
in the order in which complete rosters were filed with you. 

Major Marshall and Colonel Campbell were directed to report at the 
State rendezvous (Camp Tanner) Wednesday, June 29, 1898. The 
rendezvous was placed Tinder the command of Brigadier-General J. X. 
Reeee, with Colonel J. Mack Tanner as Post Adjutant. 

The routing, transporting, equipping, subsisting, etc., of these two, 
regiments was done by the United States ollieers on duty at Camp Tanner, 
and, while the State transported the troops to the rendezvous on State 
transportation orders, the amount represented by them will form a claim 
against the United States for adjustment at a later date. 

The 9th Illinois Infantry was mustered into the United States service 
from July -ith-llth, 1898,' and the 8th Infantry on July 22, 1898, both 
regiments having their maximum membership. 

The 8th Infantry organization is composed of men of the Afro-Ameri- 
can race throughout, from the Colonel to the last named on the roster of 
Company M. 

Xumerous applications had been made for the positions of the various 
offices by able, white, military men, but, believing that this race should 
have 'the opportunity to show the country at large whether or no its 
members possessed the ability to govern themselves, and in a spirit of 
"fair play" you determined, and carried into effect your idea, that 
Negroes could, and in this case should, be commanded by Negroes. 

Up to this date nothing has transpired to indicate that you have made 
a mistake in thus organizing the 8th Infantry. 

Early in August the commanding officer of the colored regiment 
tendered his command to the authorities at Washington for immediate 
service in Cuba. 

The troops who had so gallantly stormed El Caney and San Juan Hill, 
had fallen prey to the yellow and typhoid fever, and these dreaded diseases 
(more than Spanish valor or bullets) were making wide gaps in their 
ranks. Steps were already under way to return all the troops in Cuba to 
the United States for the purpose of destroying the germs of these 
diseases, so that this offer, in the face of this grave danger, was gladly ac- 
cepted by the Secretary of War, as is evidenced by the following telegrams : 



AMERICAN-SPANISH WAR. 367 

.WASHINGTON, D. C., August 5, 1898. 



Governor Tanner, 
The Secretary of War directs that the 8th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer 

Infantry leave in time, to take Steamer Yale in New York on Tuesday next. 

The Quartermaster General will give the Quartermaster in Chicago instruc- 

tions as to railroad transportation. 

H. C. CORBIN, 
Adjutant General. 

And, 

WASHINGTON, D. C., August 9, 1898. 
Governor Tanner, Springfield, III.: 

The Secretary of War appreciates very much the offer of the 8th Illinois 
Volunteer Infantry for duty in Santiago, and has directed that the regiment 
be sent there on Steamer Yale, leaving New "Vork next Tuesday. The main 
trouble with our troops now in Cuba is that they are suffering from exhaus- 
tion and exposure incident to one of the most trying campaigns to which 
soldiers have ever been subjected. 

H. C. CORBIN. 
Adjutant General. 

The 9th Illinois Volunteer Infantry left Camp Tanner for Jack- 
sonville, Fla., August 5, 1898. Both regiments are still in the United 
States service, and a roster of the officers and enlisted men, as shown by 
the original muster-in-rolls, is appended hereto. 

THE NAVAL MILITA OF ILLINOIS IN THE WAR WITH SPAIN. 

The records of this branch of the service, embracing enlistments in the 
regular navy, assignments to vessels, duties performed, where stationed, 
actions participated in, etc., although repeatedly called for, have not yet 
been received. The captain commanding is making every effort to 
secure the muster rolls and have them forwarded in time to be embraced 
in this report. 

I regret that the history of our Naval Militia is not here, as is generally 
reported that its many duties, even when under the enemy's fire, were 
performed in so conspicious and creditable a manner as to win praise and 
commendation from all officers and seamen of the regular navy with 
whom they served. 

This department has unofficial information that a large number of Illi- 
nois citizens enlisted in regiments of other states, and every effort will be 
made to obtain accurate lists of such enlistments. 

Bert Wilson, an Illinois man, member of Company C, 3d Mississippi 
Infantry, writes under date of September 26, 1898, from Camp Hamil- 
ton, Kentucky, that there are 452 Illinois men enrolled in that regiment. 
Steps have been taken to obtain a verification of this report, and a list of 
the Illinois men in that and other outside organizations. 



Vol. 9. 26. 



368 ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT. 

WAR -RECORDS. 

Bound record books of the rosters of Illinois regiments and troops are 
now being written up, as the permanent records of this war, for pre- 
servation in the State archives. These books will contain every possible 
obtainable data and fact connected with the service of the troops of this 
State in the war with Spain, and should serve as proof of the valor and 
patriotism of our people whenever danger threatens our flag and republic, 
and should be a lasting monument for the names therein recorded to the 
generations yet to come. 

I regret the necessity of recording that some of the regimental com- 
manders failed to render the monthly reports called for from them by 
this department, and that this failure on their part tends to delay the 
completion of these records. Several letters urging them to forward the re- 
ports called for have had no effect in hastening their action in the matter. 

J. K. BEECE, 
Adjutant General
