INTRODUCTORY 



Although many years have elapsed since the close of the Mexican 
War, and a much greater period of time since the Black Hawk 
War, the archives in the Adjutant-General's office 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 Kebellion. 
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 Rourke, a member 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 resolution: 

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 information, 
statistical and otherwise, relative to the operations of the troops from Illinois, and 
that said information be placed on lile 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 
Washington 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 act, Governor Cullom 
appointed Col. Ferris Foreman, of Vandalia, late the Colonel of the 
Third Regiment Illinois volunteers and the only surviving Colonel 
of the Mexican War, to that duty. Col. Foreman proceeded to 
Washington, and in his report to the Governor, 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 before access 
could be had t& the rolls on file in the War Department. After the 
Hon. Robert T. Lincoln became Secretary of War, Governor Cul- 
lom, who has always taken an active interest in the effort to obtain 
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 Depart- 



X INTRODUCTORY. 

ment, and correct copies of all such have been furnished by him to 
this office, and are published complete in this book. 

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 daring 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, 
requesting all persons in possession of facts or any data concern- 
ing 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 interesting 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 use 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 intro- 
ductory sketch is made of the prominent facts of the Black Hawk 
war, which is compiled from Edwards' History of the State of Illi- 
nois, 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 reports 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 derived from official and other reliable sources, which is 
considered necessary to make intelligible the official rosters, and 
which we hope, when taken in connection with them, will make an 
enduring and reliable memorial of their services, thus more than 
fulfilling the wish of the General 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 incomplete, particularly in the 
matter of the records of service in the Winnebago war, and the 
first campaign of the Black Hawk war, every effort has been made 
to obtain the desired information, both by correspondence with indi- 
viduals and the War Department, and the work as presented gives 
the final result of the best efforts of this office to meet the expecta- 
tions of the General Assembly. 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. 



THE BLACK HAWK WAE. 

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 
volunteer 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 services 
of greater or less importance, and whose names will remain for- 
ever 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 performed by them in that most important, 
of any of the Indian wars of the West, we will 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 Winnebago or 
Sauk War of 1827, and are, as briefly stated by Edwards, in his 
History of Illinois, as follows : 

"During Gov. Edwards' administration, as Executive of the State, the Indians upon 
the Northwestern frontier began to be very troublesome. The different tiibes 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, Chippewas, 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 1827 their conduct, particularly that of the Winnebagoes, became 
very alarming. 

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

A combination was soon formed by the different tribes of Indians 
under Red Bird, a chief of the Sioux, to kill or drive off all the 
whites above Ptock river. This league, which included the Winne- 
bagoes, Pottawotamies, and other tribes of the Northwest, commenced 
their offensive operations by killing two white men in the vicinity 
of Prairie du Chien, on the 24th day of July, 1827, and on the 30th 
of the same month they attacked two returning keel boats which 
had, on their upward trip, conveyed military stores to Fort Snell- 
ing, killing two of the crew and wounding four others, before they 



XII BLACK HAWK WAR. 

were repulsed. Governor Edwards, anticipating trouble, had, on the 
14th day of July, issued an order to the commandants in Gen. 
Hanson's brigade, (located on the east side of the Illinois river), to 
detach one-fourth of their respective regiments, and be ready to 
meet any attack made by the Indians. On the same day he wrote 
to Col. Thomas M. Neale, of the Twentieth Eegiment (from Sanga- 
mon 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 rendezvous the same at Fort 
Clark, and march with all possible expedition from there to Galena, 
to the assistance of the whites, as the Indians had threatened the 
settlers at the lead mines, near that place. The possession of these 
mines by the whites had always excited the serious jealousy of the 
Indians. 

Under this call Col. Neale recruited one cavalry company, which 
was commanded by Capt. Edward Mitchell, and four companies of 
Infantry, commanded, respectively, by Captains Thomas Constant, 
Eeuben Brown, Achilles Morris and Bowlin Green. The whole force 
under command of Col. Neale, (the other field officers are 
unknown except James D. Henry — Sheriff at the time of San- 
gamon 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 Bed 
Bird and six of his principal warriors had surrendered, and the 
campaign being ended the volunteers returned to their homes. No 
rolls of these companies have been obtained, and if they were 
mustered into the United States service at all, the rolls were either 
never returned to the department, or have been mislaid. 

While Col. Neale was recruiting and marching his regiment to 
Galena, the settlers there were not idle. A committee of safety had 
been formed and temporary defences were erected, and in pursuance 
of an 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 com- 
mand of Gen. Henry Dodge, and formed an auxiliary force to the 
command of Brig. -Gen. Henry Atkinson, U. S. A., whose force con- 
sisted of six hundred regulars. Before the arrival of Col. Neale, 
these forces combining under Gen. Atkinson, marched into the 
Winnebago country and captured Bed Bird, who, it appears by* a 
letter of Gen. Street to Governor Edwards, voluntarily surrendered 
himself to the whites, coming into camp displaying a white flag. 
With Red Bird there also surrendered themselves 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 con- 
victed 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. With the death of Red Bird 
ended the Winnebago war. The tribe seemed to be thoroughly 
humbled by the result of the campaign, and although fears of 



HISTOKICAL MEMORANDA. XIII 

further hostilities from them 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 
entirely, 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 removal 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 Secretary of War informed the 
Governor that Governor Cass had been instructed to "take measures 
with regard to the removal of the Indians." But delays having 
occurred, and the Indians still remaining, on the 25th clay 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. 226.) 

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 Government in the premises, Governor Edwards wrote Gen. 
Clark, Indian agent at St. Louis, a letter, in the conclusion of 
which he used the following significant language : "If any act of 
hostility shall be committed on the frontiers, I will not hesitate 
to remove them on my own responsibility as Governor of the State." 
(Edwards' History, p. 227.) 

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 rive- (the ancient seat of the 
Sauk nation) was sold to American families, and in the year following it was taken pos- 
session of by them. To avoid difficulty with the tribes another treaty, confirming previ- 
ous 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, thelndians still cultivating their old fields as formerly. Black Hawk, how- 
ever, 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, emphatically refused either to remove 
from the lands or to respect the rights of the Americans to them. He insisted that 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 heal, he determined to dispute with 
the whites the possession of the ancient seat of his nation. He had conceived the gigan- 



XIV BLACK HAWK WAR. 

tie 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, Hon. John 
Eeynolds 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 
destroyed, and they suffered in person various indignities at the 
hands of the Indians. On the 30th of April, forty of these settlers 
sent a petition to Governor Eeynolds, setting forth their grievances, 
and asking relief. Governor Eeynolds, thus informed of the' state 
of affairs, and believing that Black Hawk and his band were deter- 
mined 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 northwestern part of 
the State resounded to the clamor of war. No county south of St. 
Clair nor east of Sangamon 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 
Eushville, and there organized into two regiments, and two battal- 
ions. One of the regiments elected James D. Henry, of Sangamon 
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 brigade was placed 
under the command of Hon. Joseph Duncan, then the member in 
Congress, and afterward Governor of the State, who was commis- 
sioned by Governor Eeynolds as Brigadier General of militia. 
Colonels Enoch C. March and Samuel C. Christy were appointed 
quartermasters, while the Governor himself accompanied the expe- 
dition in his capacity of Commander-in-Chief of the militia of the 
State. They immediately (June 15th, 1831,) took up their march 
from camp near Eushville 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 unsatisfactory conference with Black 
Hawk, who declined to return across the river. Gen. Games met 
Governor Eeynolds and his force at their encampment on the Mis- 
sissippi, 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, 

* Jacob Fry was Lieutenant-Colonel, and John T. Stuart Major.

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 oy the forces 
of the opposing Generals on the following morning. Out of ven- 
geance, 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 6,000 to 7,000 Indians, where generation after generation 
had been born, had died and been buried." Gen. Gaines sent an order 
to Black Hawk requiring him and his band to return and enter into a 
treaty. They refusing to respond to the first invitation, a second 
and more peremptory 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 Reynolds and Gen. 
Gaines, signed an agreement, in which they 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 Illi- 
nois." The volunteer troops were then disbanded, and returned to 
their homes, while the subsistence gathered for their sustenance, 
was from time to time given by Gen. Gaines and the kind-hearted 
Governor to the Indians, who had, by their foolish invasion, ren- 
dered it impossible to raise any crop for that season, it being 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. William Moore's, of the same county, both in Maj. Buck- 
master's "Odd Battalion," (See pages 188, 190.) 

1832 — SECOND CAMPAIGN. 

Notwithstanding the treaty, the trouble was not yet ended. In the 
spring of 1832 Black Hawk recrossed the Mississippi (April 6th) 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 aggression and ordered 
him to return, but this they refused to do, and went forward to the 
country of the Winnebagoes, with whom Black Hawk made arrange- 
ments to make a crop of corn, which reason he alleged to be the 
cause of the expedition. The Winnebagoes and Pottawotamies, 
however, both refused 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 2 2d 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 



XVI BLACK HAWK WAR. 

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, the frontier between the Mississippi and the settlements on 
the Illinois. Such was the threatening aspect of affairs, that the 
call was extended to every part of the State. In the meantime 
eighteen hundred men had met at Beardstown, and were organized 
into a brigade of four regiments and an "odd" and a "spy" bat- 
talion. An election (April 28) for held officers, resulted in the 
election of Col. John Thomas to command the First Eegiment, Col. 
Jacob Fry the Second Regiment, Col. Abram B. DeWitt the Third 
Regiment, Col. Samuel M. Thompson the Fourth Regiment* (in this 
regiment was Capt. Abraham Lincoln'st company — p. 100), while 
Major James D. Henry, of Sangamon county, was elected to com- 
mand the Spy Battalion (p. 106), in which Captains John Dawson, 
Thomas Carlin and John Dement commanded the companies, and 
Major Thomas James to the command of the "Odd" Battalion (page 
110). A part of the "Odd" Battalion under Maj. Long, consisting 
of the companies commanded by Capt. Jacob Eby and Capt. Japhet 
A. Ball, both from Sangamon county, was " detached for foot pur- 
poses." Eight companies, not attached to any regiment (pp. 116- 
122), also served in this brigade. Governor Reynolds, who also 
accompanied the expedition, placed Brigadier- Gen. Whiteside in 
the immediate command, while Cols. March and Christy, the effi- 
cient quartermasters in the campaign of 3831, were relied on to 
gather the supplies for the present campaign. William Thomas 
was appointed 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, adju- 
tant general, 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 Armstrong, who sent a boat loaded with provisions 
to the troops. 

From here they marched up the river to the mouth of Rock 
river, where they were all received into the United States service 
by Gen. Atkinson. From this point the commanding general pro- 
ceeded up the Rock river on a steamer, accompanied by a force of 
400 regulars and an armament of cannon, while the volunteers 
under Gen. Whiteside 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 
Governor to grant them the privilege of reconnoitering the enemy. 
Thereupon 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 morning, May 
14, 1832,) they started with 275 men (Stillman' s Brigade. 
See page 151, for rolls of Bailey's command, afterward Fifth Regi- 
ment, pp. 102-5), and reached the Old Man's Creek without adven- 
ture, pursuing 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 immediately started in pursuit, while 
others followed as soon as they could mount, and soon three-fourths 
of the command had joined in an irregular 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 ambush, and with ter- 
rific 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- 
pede in the remainder of the force of the camp, and they all fled, 
in an inglorious panic, and in spite of the efforts of Major Still- 
man and others to rally them, the retreat was continued until they 
all reached the main force at Dixon. Major Perkins and Captain 
Adams, of Tazewell County, with about fifteen men, made a stand 
in which they somewhat checked the Indians, and thus saved the 
lives of many of the fugitives, who would otherwise have fallen vic- 
tims 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 undoubtedly 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 utmost consternation spread 
throughout the State and Nation. 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 1,000 United States troops, was immediately 
ordered to the Northwest, to superintend 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 imme- 
diately to the battle field. 

The next morning, after obtaining ten oxen from Col. John 
Dixon, which were slaughtered and issued to the men, without 
bread or salt, the whole force marched to the scene of the encoun- 
ter. The dead were recovered, in most instances frightfully muti- 
lated, and the fragments gathered together and buried ; but although 
Major Henry and his men effectually scoured the surrounding coun- 
try for miles in 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 
Governor appealing to their patriotism, they agreed to remain from 
12 to 15 days longer, and the companies under Bailey (Covell's, 
McClure's, Pugh's and Adams'), with Stillman's battalion, (Captains 
Eads', Barnes' and Ball's companies) were organized into a regi- 
ment, known as the Fifth Regiment of Whiteside's Brigade, under 
Colonel James Johnson, and received into the service of the United 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XIX 

States, and one part ordered to Ottawa, for the defense of that 
place, while the other remained 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 
fiom Ottawa. 

General Atkinson ordered Gen. Whitesde'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 following 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 Eock Eiver, and there discharged on 
the 27th and 28th days of May, and thus the campaign ended with- 
out effecting any important 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 
immediate service, for a term of twenty days, until the new levies 
should arrive. This regiment, which was tilled without difficulty, 
organized by the election of Jacob Fry, as Colonel ; James D. Henry, 
as Lieutenant-Colonel. 

Although this regiment does not appear grouped together, as it 
should be, in this record, the companies, as well as can now be ascer- 
tained, were Capt. Samuel Smith's company (page 168), Capt. B. 
James' company (page 169), Capt. Elijah lies' company (page 174) 
— (This company contained private 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN, 

who had been that day mustered out, with his company, as a cap- 
tain, and reenlisted with many of his men in Capt. lies' company, 
for this emergency service) — Capt. Alex. D. Cox's company (page 
178), Capt. Wm. 0. 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 10th, and Capt. Snyder's 
discharged the 21st of June. This latter company had some severe 
skirmishing with the enemy, some seventy 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 everything within their reach, de- 
parted, taking with them all the stock, provisions and movable 
property of the settlers. Only one man of the whites was killed, 
while the loss of the savages has never been ascertained. 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. Ham- 
ilton, five miles from Galena, Gen. Dodge, of Wisconsin, followed 
them, with the 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 Kel- 
logg's Grove, and were repulsed by the Indians, who had taken 
shelter in a small grove, with the loss of three killed^and the Cap- 
tain and several others seriously wounded. 

The new levies met as provided in the call, at Beardstown and 
Hennepin, but were afterward ordered to Fort Wilbourne, a small 
fortification 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 determined by an election, in which all the 
troops should participate. The brigades were organized, and on 
the 16th day of June Alexander Posey was elected General of the 
First, Milton K. Alexander 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 
were 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 possession 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 June, 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, he was visited by Mr. Funk, of McLean County, who, 



HISTOEICAL MEMORANDA. XXI 

while on his way from the lead mines the night before, reported 
that a trail of about 300 Indians 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 daylight the party sallied forth, and when 
within 300 yards of the fort discovered several Indian spies. Regard- 
less of the cries of Col. Dement and Lieut. -Governor Casey, who 
accompanied him, and without waiting for direction, these undrilled 
and undisciplined men immediately charged on the foes, and reck- 
lessly following them, despite all efforts of Col. Dement to check 
them, were led into an ambush, and suddenly were confronted by 
300 howling, naked savages under the command of Black Hawk in 
person. The sudden appearance of the savages created a panic 
among the whites, and each man struck out for himself 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 num- 
ber behind them, dead on the field, besides several others carried 
away wounded. No one in the fort was killed, but several wounded. 
Col. Dement received three shots through his clothing, but fortun- 
ately escaped unhurt. At 8 o'clock in the morning, messengers were 
sent fifty miles to Gen. Posey for assistance, and towards sundown 
that General and his brigade made their appearance, and no further 
attack was made on the fort by the savages. Gen. Posey started 
out in search of the enemy the next day, but the trail showed that 
they had pursued their favorite tactics of scattering their forces, 
and the pursuit was abandoned. The army continued its march up 
Eock river, near the source of which they expected to find the 
enemy. As provisions were scarce and difficult to convey for any 
distance, the command of Gen. Alexander, with a detachment 
under Gen. Henry and Maj. 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 Maj. Dodge started in immediate pursuit, leaving Gen. Alexan- 
der 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 Wisconsin, and a decisive battle 
fought, in which Gen. Henry commanded the American forces, 
which consisted of Maj. Dodge's battalion on the right, Col. Jones, 
regiment in the center, and Col. Cojlins' on the left, with Maj. 
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 over the enemy during the war. 

In the morning it was discovered that the Indians had fled in 
the direction of the Mississippi river, leaving 168 dead on the field, 
and of their wounded, taken with them, twenty-five were found dead 



XXII BLACK HAWK WAB. 

the next day on their trail, while Gen. Henry lost only 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 account 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 effective men, Alexander's 850, in 
Henry's 300, while the regulars under Gen. Brady mustered 400 
men ; all told, the force mustered about 1,200 effective men, — though 
much reduced since the beginning of the campaign, 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, 
showing them to be in a deplorable condition, and suffering for 
food. On the morning of the 2nd of August, the army reached the 
bluffs of the Mississippi, some distance, however, from the strjam. 
The Indians had reached the river, and were making active prepa- 
rations 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 afterward 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 Indians and wounded many 
more, Capt. Throckmorton intended to return after wooding up, and 
finish the remainder. Before he could execute his intention, how- 
ever, Gen. Atkinson had fallen on the unfortunate savages where 
they were encamped, at the mouth of the Bad Axe, a creek empty- 
ing into the Mississippi river, and had commenced a general battle, 
in which the Indians were completely routed, and suffered a 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. 
[Davidson and Stuve's Hist. 405.] The American loss was seven- 
teen killed. 

This battle virtually ended the war. Gen. Atkinson, with his 
whole force, and prisoners, [about fifty women and children], fell 
down the river to Prairie du Chien. 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 compa- 
nies, 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 remained in Chicago 
until the latter part of the month before coming on to Fort Arm-

strong, their final destination. The volunteers now returned to 
Dixon, and were discharged on the 17th day of August. On the 
27th Black Hawk, having been captured by some treacherous 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 Washington with a deputation of the chiefs of his tribe, on 
the invitation of the President, to settle differences which had occa- 
sioned 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 Des 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 Hawk was gathered to his fathers. 

Perhaps no one of his race ever excelled Black Hawk in patriot- 
ism 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: "Bock River was a beautiful 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 peace- 
able manner, had resorted to arms, because he thought it the only 
possible arbitrament. 

Besides the companies of Capt. Joseph Napier [page 149], Capt. Holden Session [page 148] 
and Capt. James Walker [page 178], the latter from Walker's Grove, now Plainfield Town- 
ship, in Will county, all of which were recruited within the limits of the then county 
of Cook; another company was organized for home defense within the city of Chicago, a 
muster roll of which is preserved in a book entitled 'Early Chicago," by Hon. John Went- 
worth, being the third paper published by that gentleman on the early history of the city 
of Chicago, (No. 10, Fergus Hist. Phampiets).

THE MEXICAN WAR. 



The volunteers from the State of Illinois performed such a con- 
spicuous 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 11th day of May, 1843, 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 million 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 principally from the Southern and Western States. Illinois 
was called on for three regiments of infantry or riflemen, and the 
pay, with all allowances, placed at $15.50 per month to the private 
soldier. The militia of the State being then in an unorganized con- 
dition, Governor Ford issued a call for thirty full companies of vol- 
unteers of a maximum of eighty men, to serve for twelve months, 
and with the privilege of electing their own company and regimen- 
tal 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 seventy-five companies recruited, — each furious to go — of 
which the Governor (Ford) was compelled to select thirty companies 
— the full quota of the State — and the forty-odd unsuccessful com- 
panies were doomed to the disappointment of remaining at home. 
Of these thirty companies, were organized the First Regiment, Col. 
John J. Hardin,- the Second Regiment, Col. William H. Bissell, and 
the Third Regiment, Col. Ferris Foreman, which were recruited dur- 
ing 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 
district, 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, 1845, and 
served in the same brigade with the Third Regiment until both were 
discharged. 

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



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXV 

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 24th day of October with no oppo- 
sition. 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 Nueva, thus completing a six 
weeks' march of about one thousand miles, which had been barren 
of results. In January, 1847, General Taylor proceeded from Sal- 
tillo and. formed a junction with Gen. Wool. On the 22d day of 
February, 1847, was begun 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 Illinois regiments covered them- 
selves with glory. 

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

"Agua Nueva. March 6, 1847. 
"The First and Second Illinois and the Second Kentucky Regiments served immediately 
under my eye, and I bear a willing testimony to their excellent conduct throughout the 
day. The spirit and gallantry with which the First Illinois and Second Kentucky 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 sustaining 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 Regiments, the command of the former devolved 
1 upon Lieutenant Colonel Weatherford, and that of the latter upon Major Fry. Regi- 
mental 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 lim- 
its of this report forbid a recapitulation of them here. I may, however, mention * 
* * Lieutenant Colonel Weatherford, First Illinois Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel 
Morrison, Major Trail and Adjutant Whiteside (severely wounded). Second Illinois Pegi- 
ment, and Major Fry, Second Kentucky Regiment, as being favorably noticed for gal- 
lantry 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 22d 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 : 

FIKST ILLINOIS. 

Eight companies— 1 Colonel, 1 Lieutenant Colonel, 8 Captains, 1 Adjutant, 18 Subalterns. 
519 non-commissioned officers and privates. Sick— Two commissioned officers and 25 
non-commissioned officers and privates, making an aggregate of 580 officers and privates, 

SECOND ILLINOIS. 

Eight companies— 1 Colonel, 1 Major, 7 Captains, 1 Adjutant. 19 Subalterns, 496 non-com- 
missioned officers and privates. Sick— Four commissioned officers, 40 non-commissioned 
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 : 



XXVI MEXICAN WAK. 

FIRST ILLINOIS FOOT. 

Killed— One Colonel, one Captain, one Subaltern, 26 enlisted men. Total, 26. 
Wounded— Two Subalterns, 16 enlisted men, missing, 3. Aggregate loss, 47. 

SECOND ILLINOIS FOOT. 

Killed— -Two Captains, one Subaltern, 2» 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 
detachment no further service was performed by these two regi- 
ments during the war. They remained at Buena Vista until the 
latter part of May, when the following order was issued: 

Headquarters, Buena Vista, i 
May 28, 1847, f 
Orders No. 302. 

The term of service for which the First and Second Illinois regiments have engaged 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 on the field of Buena Vista. It was there that tlie General witnesses 
with infinite satisfaction their valor, which gave additional luster to our arms, and 
increased glory to our country. To their steadiness and firmness in connection with the 
Second Kentucky regiment of foot, in resisting the Mexicans at a critical moment, and 
when there were five to one against them, and as General Santa Anna said, "where 
blood flowed in torrents and the field of battle was strewed with their dead," 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, Wood- 
ward, Yell, Clay, and many others, fell leading their men to the charge. Their named 
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 Weatherford and their officers, who 
have on all occasions done honor to themselves, and heroically sustained the cause of 
their country in the battle of Buena Vista. His best wishes will attend them to their 
homes, where they will be received with joy and gladness as the pride of their families 
and of their States, 

By command of Brig.-Gen. WOOL. 

IRWIN McDOWELL, Assistant Adjutant General. 

These regiments were discharged at Camargo, Mexico, on the 
17th day of June, 184/. 

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 
Matamoras 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 volun- 
teers 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 companies 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 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA.. XXVII 

•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 
engaged, 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, 1817, says : 

Early on the morning of the 18th, the columns moved to the general attack, and our suc- 
cess was speedy and decisive. * * * The Brigade so gallantly led by Gen. Shields, 
and after his fall, by Col. Baker, deserves high commendation for its fine behavior and 
success. Cols. Foreman and Burnett, and Maj. Harris (Fourth Illinois) commanded the 
regiments; Lieut. Hammond. Third artillery, and Lieut. Davis, Illinois volunteers, con- 
stituted 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 Gen. Shields, I cannot speak in 
too high terms. After he was wounded, portions of the three regiments were with 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. 276. 

From the report of Maj. -Gen. Patterson, commanding the volun- 
teer 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 regulars was closely engaged with the left of the 
enemy's lines, I was instructed, and immediately directed the Third volunteer brigade, 
under Brig.-Gen. Shields, 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 was, however, 
occ ' pied in establishing several pieces of artillery upon a height adjacent to the "Cerro 
Gordo." 

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

Col. Baker, Fourth Illinois regiment, having assumed the command, the enemy's lines 
were charged with spirit and success by the Third and Fourth Illinois, and the New York 
regiment, under the respective commanders, ( ols. Foreman and Burnett, and Major 
Harris. The rout nowbecoming 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-chief 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 Col. 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. Tinney, of the Fonrth 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 1 have in my 
possession." 



MEXICAN WAE. 



The Third and Fourth Eegiments 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 KEGIMENT, 

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, 1817, for six thousand more vol- 
unteers to "serve during the war," to take the place of those whose 
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. Newby as 
Colonel. 

This regiment left Alton by steamer, for Fort Leavenworth June 
14, and from thence marched across the plains to Santa Fe. In 
October, 1847, the first battalion with a part of a Missouri regi- 
ment 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 cut of the 
service at Alton, Illinois, from the 15th to the 18th day of October, 
1843. 

THE SIXTH REGIMENT, 

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

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 it was difficult again for the Gov- 
ernor to select, as the men poured in by hundreds, and enough 
reported in ten days time to fill half a dozen regiments. Applica- 
tion was again made to the Secretary of War by Lieutenant 
Colonel Hicks and others for leave to organize another regiment. 
It was hard to refuse these veterans of Buena Vista and Cerro 
Gordo, and the permission was granted, and the regiment was 
organized at Alton. Illinois, on the 3d day of August, 1847, by the 
election of J. Collins as Colonel. 

Shortly after the regiment was 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 after- 
wards 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 forwarded by vessel to 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXIX 

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, 
Illinois. 

INDEPENDENT MOUNTED VOLUNTEERS. 

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 second year of the war, and mustered in, as all troops were, 
under the second 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 21 st day of the same month, its enlistment being 
authorized by the same order under which Col. Newby'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 com- 
pany also lost heavily, as did all the volunteers of that year, by 
sickness, several men having died while at Matamoras. It was 
finally discharged at Alton, Illinois, on the 7th day of November, 
1818, having served eighteen months in all, being distinguished as 
the longest term of service of any company from this State 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 
August, 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 recruited 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 



XXX MEXICAN WAR. 

States service at place of enrollment, on August 13, and forwarded 
to Mexico via the New Orleans route. Except the common experi- 
enceswith fever, reptiles and insects, this company had no encoun- 
ter 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. JOSIAH LITTLE'S COMPANY 

was conspicuous as the last company received into the United States 
service, being mustered in at Alton on the 11th 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 11th day of February, 1848, Congress passed an act 
authorizing the President to raise ten new regiments for the Kegular 
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 regiment of Voltigeurs. eight regiments of Infantry, 
the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, 
Fifteenth and Sixteenth, and the Third regiment of Dragoons. 
These regiments were recruited at various stations all over the 
United States. Of these regiments the Twelfth, Thirteenth and 
Fourteenth regiments were recruited by Brig.-Gen. G. M. Brooke, 
at New Orleans, while the Fifteenth and Sixteenth were recruited 
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 brigaded with the Voltigeur regiment and the Eleventh 
Infantry, and under Brig.-Gen. Cadwalader was engaged in the 
battle of ElMolino del Bey, on the 8th day of September, 1847. 
Concerning their conduct Major 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 conduct 
of Brig.-Gen. Cadwalader and his command, by which the most timely and essential ser- 
vice was rendered in supporting the attack, and following up the success. Such move- 
ments as he was directed to make were executed with zeal and promptness." (Mess, and 
Doc. 1847, p. 366j 

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

No official report of the service of the Sixteenth regiment is in 
possession of this office or at present accessible. 

By General Order No. 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 New 
Orleans, and the Sixteenth at Newport Barracks, Kentucky, which 
was done accordingly. 

As several recruiting stations were opened in the Southwestern 
States, quite a number of Illinois men were recruited in the Begular 
Army proper, notably in the Fourth regiment. A member of this 



HISTORICAL MEMORANDA. XXXI 

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 forbear 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 patriotic gratitude, heretofore manifested in favor of 
the soldiers of the revolution and of the war of 1812, grant equally 
to these survivors some further recognition of their services in the 
way of a pension. While it 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 allowed to say, without sub- 
jecting ourselves to criticism, that there is something in the appear- 
ance of the letters of these old veterans of a generation gone 
before, which appeals to our liveliest sympathies. They almost 
unanimously ask in their quavering and palsied penmanship, that 
the General Government make some additional provision to secure 
them against want in their old age.

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 Con- 
gress, 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 ser- 
vice." 

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.

APPENDIX. 



A RECORD OF THE SERVICES OF THE ILLINOIS MILITIA, RIFLEMEN AND VOL- 
UNTEERS, IN THE INDIAN WARS, 1810 to 1813. 



In 1810 a series of massacres and depredations were committed by the Indians of Illinois 
Territory, upon citizens of Louisiana Territory, which led to a long correspondence 
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 Pottawotamies were guilty of the outrage, and a requisition 
having been made on him for the murderers, Capt. Samuel Levering, on the 24th of July, 
1811, was commissioned by Gov. Edwards to visit the tribes on the Illinois River, and 
demand of them, the author of the murders which had been committed. (Edwards 111., 

Of this expedition, Ninian W. Edwards (in his History of Illinois,) says: "Capt Levering 
departed on that day (July 24, 1811), from Kaskaskia, and arrived at Mr. Jarrot's, in the 
village of Cahokia, on the next day at 11 P. M. Capt. Ebert had engaged part of the crew 
for the boat, and on the 25th of July, the boat having been furnished by Governor Clark 
with the necessary equioments, provisions, etc., they left in the boat for Peoria, with the 
crew, consisting of Capt. Levering, Capt. Hebert, Henry Swearingen, N. Rector, a French- 
man (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, Francis 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 after- 
ward 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 Nov. 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 Teiritory. 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 Capt. 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 could not 
find the murderers. Little Chief promised to deliver two more horses to Capt. Heald at 
Chicago, and Gomo promised to deliver the murderers when they could be found. At 
this conference it was ascertained that the Missouri murderers were near Prophets 
town,— Tippecanoe— and hopes were entertained of catching them in the fall. By expo- 
sure incurred and disease contracted on this expedition, Capt. Levering died soon after 
his return to Kaskaskia.

Throughout the whole summer of 1811 the English emissaries kept up. industriously 
the dastardly work of setting the Indians on the white settlers. Encouraged bytheir 
promises. Tecumseh had conceived the plan of combining the Southern tribes 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 darkness, 
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 Capt. Isaac White (for whom White county was afterward named), who com- 
manded 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 be en 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 preser\ed. We find, however, a payroll of militia from July 4th, to July 29th, 1811, 
as follows:

APPENDIX. 321 

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

The Indians of the North-west, however, did not desire peace. Thev had been kept 
stirred up and excited by the British agents, so that when Congress, on the 19th 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 organized in anticipation of the 
outbreak, and additional forts were built, one near the mouth of Little Wabash, and an- 
other 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 Government had 
erected Fort Dearborn at the mouth of 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 s'avages were sup- 
posed to be of the most cordial nature. At the time of the massacre the garrison con- 
sisted of 75 men. few of whom were effective soldiers. The officers were Capt. Heald, 
Lieut. Helm, Ensign Ronan and Surgeon Voorhees. 

On the 7th of August Capt. Heald received an order from Governor Hull, commander- 
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, Win- 
nemeg, strongly advised against the evacuation, not believing it to be safe to leave the 
protection of the block-houses. But the commander, impressed more with his duty of 
obedience than of fear of danger, which he did not consider imminent, without consulta- 
tion with his subordinates gave the order to evacuate the following morning. The other 
officers immediately added their remonstrances, and urged the improbability of being 
able to make a successful retrpat 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. 

Capt. Heald called together the Pottawotamies in council on the 12th, and promised 
them the goods belonging to the government, and in return they promised him to escort 
his force to Fort Wayne. 

Capt. Heald, when too late, found that it was indiscreet to give the ammunition and 
whiskey to the Indians, so on the night of the 13th he destroyed all the ammunition by 
throwing it in a well, broke the extra guns and stove the whiskey 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 un- 
friendly attitude of the Indians was given during this day by Black Partridge, but Capt. 
Wells with 15 friendly Miami s having arrived from Fort Wayne, the despondency of the 
whites was somewhat dispelled. Capt. 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 ot 
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 Michi- 
gan. The troops fought bravely, but were overborne by numbers: only 28 out of 66 sur- 
rendered. Capt. Heald in his report gives them at 54 regulars and 12 militia, of which 26 
regulars and all the militia were killed— all the other officers, including Capt. Wills, except 
the Capt. and Lieut. Helm, and most of the women and children" were killed outright, one 
savage tomahawking 12 children in one wagon alone. 

Of all who started out on the fatal morning, was left the Capt., 1st Lieut. 25 enlisted men. 
and 11 women and children, fortunately including among the latter the brave wife ot 
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 Pottawotamies, who arrived too late for the main attack, and were only saved by 
the presence of mind of Billy Caldwell, a half-breed Wyandott, who placated them with 
good speeches in recommendation of Mr. Kinsie'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, thoroughly organ- 
ized and equipped the militia of the territory, built forts, and made every possible enoit.

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 interior, even 
encroaching on the settlements in Southern Illinois. The British had descended the 
Mississippi to Bock 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 Col. William Eussell. was directed to the aid of Indiana 
and Illinois. On the 11th day of October, Col. Eussell with two companies started from 
Vincennes to join Governor Edwards in an expedition then fitting out at Camp Russell. 
These companies were commanded by Captains Perry and Modrell. General Hopkins, in 
command at Vincennes with over 2,000 of the Kentuckians, was to move off the Wabash 
to Ft. Harrison, pass over into Illinois, march across the prairies on the headwaters of the 
Sangamon and Vermillion rivers, destroying the Indian villages in the course of his 
march, and to finally effect a junction with Edwards and Russell on the Illinois, and, com- 
bined, to sweep the Indians from the 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 Ft. 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 Gov. Edwards had collected 350 men of the Illinois militia at Camp 
Russell, by the time Col. Russell had arrived with the U. S. Rangers, as the regular 
troops were then called. These he divided in two small regiments, commanded respectively 
by Colonels Elias Rector and Benjamin Stephenson. (Rolls of a portion of these com- 
panies are yet preserved, and are published complete in the following pages). 

DESTRUCTION OF PEORIA. 

It having 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 gunboat, whde 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 instruction was carried out fully, by burning 
the place and taking prisoners the white inhabitants, who were afterwards sent as prison- 
ers to Camp Russell and from there sent to St. Louis, and discharged some months 
afterwards. Governor Coles, in a report 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), Antonie Le Claire, Michael La Croix, Francis Racine. 
Sr., Francis Racine, Jr.. Felix Fontaine, Hypolyte Maillet, Francis Banche, heirs of 
Charles La Belle, Antonie La Pance, Antoine Barbonne and Louis Pencennau. The above 
list does not include women and children, the number of prisoners in the aggregate num- 
bering 75. 

GOVERNOR EDWARDS' CAMPAIGN, 1812. 

On the 18th day of October, Governor Edwards and his army took up their march. Their 
route was up the west side of Cahokia creek, thence to the Macoupin, which they crossed 
near the present town of Carlinville, thence in a northeast direction, thev crossed the 
Sangamon below the junction of the north and south forks east of the present city of 
Springfield; passing thence east of Elkhart Grove, they crossed Salt creek near the site of 
the present city of Lincoln; from thence marching still northward, they came upon a de- 
serted 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 Pattawotamies. Having approached within a few miles 
of the town, Thomas Carlin, (afterwards Governor of the State) and Robert Stephen and 
Davis Whitesides were sent to reconnoiter the enemy, which they successfully accomp- 
lished by passing through and over the town in the night without discovery. 

Early on the following morning, the army, with Capt. Judy and his spy company 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 approach 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 Governor 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 recom- 
mended 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 organ- 
ization of ten companies of rangers, which were afterward organized as the 17th united 
States Regiment, under Col. 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 Hargrave. William McHenry. Nathaniel Jour- 
ney, Capt. Craig, at Shawneetown, and William Boon, on Big Muddy, were respectively 
commanders, ready, on short notice of Indian outrages, to make pursuit of the depreda- 
tors." (D. and S. Hist. 111., p. 249.) We are, however, of the opinion that there must have 
been some mistake aboutthe 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 service of the Governor of 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 ilate Sept. hi, 1812. which was no doubt made out at Camp Russell, signed

Examined and approved.

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

The foregoing comprises all the rolls of Companies which have been preserved in this 
office of those who enlisted daring 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 extend- 
ing 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 settle- 
ments 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 Winston, 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 
the present town of Lebanon, was known as Chambers' Fort. On the Kaskaskia river 
were Middleton's and Going's Forts; one on Doza creek, 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 territory, was at Camp Russell, a mile and a half northwest of the present 
town ot Edwardsville, in Madison county, in honor of the Colonel, the commander of 
the Regiment of Rangers. (D. and S. Hist. HI., pp. 249-250.) This fort was protected by 
the cannon from old i< ort < hartres, and under the guns of Louis XIV.. under whose pro- 
tecting muzzles the Territorial Governor was wont to organize diis expeditions, gather 
his military stores, and rendezvous his recruits under the various calls which the neces- 
sities pi a desultory Indian warfare, of several years' duration, made it obligatory 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. N. Ramsey, as 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 tin- only company of n-ii- 
lar 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 blockhouses were strengthened and the settlers in remote and 
weakly garrisoned blockhouses removed to those that were stronger. New companies of 
rangers were enlisted and siationed so as to cover the settlements. In addition to the 
regular forts, from the present city of Alton to Kaskaskia, were twenty-two family forts, 
scattered along. These precautions, however, did not prevent numerous 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 Livelv, an old ranger (see Alexander's company) were attacked 
ane five persons killed, including Mr. Lively. The bodies of all were shockingly 
mutilated. The Indians who perpetrated this outrage were supposed to be Kicka- 
poos, and were followed by Capt, Boon and his company, (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 Alexander 
county. Near Fort LaMotte, about 30 miles above Vincennes, Mrs. Houston and four 
children were killed. In a small prairie near Albion in Edwards county, Mr. Bolting- 
house was killed. This prairie was afterwards named for him. 

Notwithstanding these, and many other outrages, the general government had provided 
no means for the support of the rangers and militia, and those in the service, in Illinois, 
were discharged on the 9th day 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 Stephenson, Brigade Major, April 17. 1813," we find that 
the following companies w T ere included in his command: Capt. B. Whiteside's, Capt. 
James B. Moore's (3d company), Capt. Samuel Whiteside's. Capt. Jacob Short's, and Capt. 
Nicholas Jarrott's. Bolls of Moore's and Short's companies at that time, are as follows:

340 APPENDIX. 

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

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

Sir- A short time ago I received a letter from Colonel Bond, informing mo that you had 
authorized him to request me to raise and organize three additional companies 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 liobinson, 1st Lieutenant. 
Arthur Morgan, 2d Lieutenant. 
John Huitt, Ensign. 

Samuel Whiteside, Captain. 
Joseph Borough, 1st Lieutenant. 
Samuel Gilbaur, 2d Lieutenant. 
Arthur Armstrong, Ensign. 

Jacob Short, Captain. 
Nathaniel Journey. 1st Lieutenant. 
Andrew Bankston, 2d Lieutenant. 
John Journey, Ensign. 

These officers and those of the companies raised here last v ear, 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 peti- 
tioned me on this subject. The privates comprising the battalion are equally desirous 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 certain indi- 
viduals, was induced to ask for this force and to recommend John Murdock to be author- 
ized 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 impedi- 
ment 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. 347-8.) 

Second Campaign 1813. 

Large numbers of hostile Indians having gathered among tne Kickapoosand Potawota- 
mies at their villages on Lake Peoria, and marauding parties from these being frequently 
sent out to harass, rout and kill the settlers on the frontiers of both Illinois and Missouri, a 
joint expedition was projected of the militia of both territories, to disperse them from 
their convenient location. An army of 900 men was collected and placed under the com- 
mand of Gen. Howard, who had resigned the position of Territorial Governor of Missouri, 
for that purpose. The Illinois contingent was ordered 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 follows: Colonel, Ben- 
jamin Stephenson, Randolph county; W. B. Whitesides .and John Murdock, Majors, and 
Joseph Phillips, Samuel Judy, Nathaniel Journey, and Samuel Whitesides, Captains. 
The Missouri contingent was commanded by Colonel McNair, afterward Governor 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 
formed by the Missourians crossing the river at Et. Mason. 100 miles above the mouth of 
the Illinois river, when General Howard took the principal command 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 con- 
tinued up the Illinois river to Peoria, where there was a small stockade in charge of 
Capt. Nicholas of the TJ. 8. 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. sav: 



APPENDIX. 341 

" The array was marched up the lake to Goma's village, the present site of Chilicotho 
and finding that the enemy had ascended the Illinois, two .deserted villages were 
demolished under the shock of its onset, and burned, when if- took up its retrogado march 
■ At the outlet of the lake, the present site of Peoria, the troops remained in camp several' 
weeks, "building Fort Clark, named in honor of Gen. George lingers 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 lo scour the Spoon 
river country, towards Hock river. Both expeditions returned without olher 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 (.'amp Russell, where the volunteers and militia were dis- 
banded, October 22, 1813. (D. and S.. History Illinois, p. 277.) 

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. Compiled from Reynolds Times, and 
Stuve's History of Illinois: 

In July, a Mrs. Reagan, living in the Wood River settlement six miles east of tho present 
city of Alton, with her six children, were murdered by the Indians, who were pursued bv 
Capt. Samuel Whiteside and his company of rangers, to the Sangamon 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 Washing- 
ton 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 
Payette county, and killed them all. Tho 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 gar- 
rison of "Macinoc 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 tho meantime, and believing 
it desirable to strengthen the fort atPrairie 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 reinforce- 
ments. Of this force 60 men were Illinois rangers under the command 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 expedition, that all was not right. Lieut. Camp- 
bell, 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 attacked 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 fiad gone ahead, and the force 
on Campbell's boat had been mostly killed and wounded. When Rector, throwing over- 
board 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, leaving 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, buttoward 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 season for 
the Upper Mississippi. This latter was fitted up at Cape au Gris, an old French hamlet 
on the left bank of the Mississippi, a few miles above the mouth of the Illinois. It con- 
sisted of 334 men (forty of whom were regulars) in command of Major Zacary Taylor, 
Nelson Rector and Samuel Whitesides and Captain Hempstead being each in command 
of a boat. 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. 

The expedition passed up as far as Rock Island unmolested, although the country 
swarmed with the enemy who were aided by the English, who were then in command, 
with a detachment of regulars and artillery. On the 23d day of August, 1814, the boats 
were attacked by the combined f . >rce of the Indians and English, and turning about began 
to descend the rapids, fighting with great gallantry, tho enemy pouring in a hot lire into 
their flanks from both sides of the river. A little way above the mouth of the Rock 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 landedja considerable force of the red skins on the island, to supple- 
ment 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 ou the 
savages and drove them with considerable loss from the upper island to the lower one. 
The fire of the artillery 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. Rector to clear the other island of savages, the expedition, 
with a total loss of 11 men wounded— of whom 3 afterwards died— continued its retreat 
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 blockhouses 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) considered unten- 
able—the troops being out of provisions— and was evacuated and burnt, and the expedi- 
tion 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 were discharged Oct. 18, 1814. 

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

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