The Ninety-second Regiment Infantry Illinois Volunteers was organized at Rockford Illinois, and mustered into United States service September 4, 1862. It was composed of the companies from Ogle County, three from Stephenson County and two from Carroll County.

The Regiment left Rockford October 11, 1862, with orders to report to General Wright at Cincinnati, where it was assigned to General Baird's Division, Army of Kentucky. It marched immediatelv into the interior of the State and during the latter part of October was stationed at Mt. Sterling to guard that place against rebel raids, and, afterwards, at Danville Kentucky. On 26th January, 1863, the Regiment, with General Baird's Division, was ordered to the Army ofthe Cumberland arriving at Nashville, the command moved to Franklin, Tennessee, and was engaged in the pursuit of the rebel General Van Dorn. Advanced to Murfreesboro and occupied Shelbyville June 27. On July 5, Regiment was engaged in rebuilding wagon bridge over Duck River. July 6, was ordered by General Rosencraas to be mounted, and armed with the Spencer rifle, and attached to Colonel Wilder's Brigade of General Thomas Corps where it remained while General Rosencrans had command. The Regiment crossed the mountains at Dechard, Tennessee, and took part in the movements opposite and above Chattanooga when it recrossed the mountains, and joined General Thomas, at Trenton, Alabama.

On the morning of 9th September, it was in the advance to Chattanooga, and participated in driving the rebels from Point Lookout, and entered the rebel stronghold, unfolding the Union banner in the Crutchfield House, and kept in pursuit of the rebels. At Ringgold, Georgia, was attacked by a Brigade of Cavalry, under command of General Forrest, and drove them from the town, killing and wounding a large number.

During the Chicamauga Battle, the Regiment took part in General Reynolds Division, of General Thomas Corps.

In April, 1864, it was again at Ringgold Georgia doing picket duty. April 23, Captain Scovil, with twenty-one men were captured at Nickajack Gap, nine miles from Ringgold, and one man killed. Of the men thus taken prisoner, twelve were shot down and six died of wounds, after being taken prisoners. The remainder were taken to Andersonville, and very few ever left that place, having died from the cruel treatment received there.

From Ringgold, May 7, 1864, the Regiment entered upon the Atlanta Campaignn and was assigned to General Kilpatrick's command and participated in the battles of Resaca raid around Atlanta, Bethesada, Fleet River Bridge, and Jonesboro. The Regiment lost at Jonesboro, one fifth of the men engaged. From Mount Gilead Church, west of Atlanta, October 1, the Regiment moved, and took active part in the operations against Hood's Army. At Powder Springs, it had a severe engagement, losing a large number of men killed and wounded. The Regiment then returned to Marietta and participated in the various engagements and skirmishes in Sherman's march to the sea. At Swirt Creek, N. C., Captain Hawk, Company C. was severely wounded, losing a leg.

The Regiment. during its term of service, was in some forty battles and skirmishes. It was mustered out at Concord, North Carolina, and paid and discharged from the service at Chicago Illinois. July 10, 1865.
