HISTORY OF THIRTEENTH INFANTRY.
The Thirteenth Regiment Illinois Infantry was one of the regiments organized under the act known as the Ten Regiment Bill. It was composed of companies as follows:
"I" from Cook county, "H" from Kane county, "K" from DuPage county, "E" and "F" from DeKalb county, "A" and "C" from Lee county, "B" and "G" from Whiteside county, and "D" from Rock Island county.

John B. Wyman, of Amboy, was elected colonel;
B. F. Parks, of Aurora, lieutenant colonel;
and A. B. Georges, of Dixon, major.

The regiment was mustered into the state service on the 21st day of April and into the United States service on the 24th day of May, 1861, for three years or during the war, by Captain John Pope, of the regular army, at Camp Dement, Dixon. Illinois.

The Thirteenth was the first regiment organized from the then Second Congressional District of the state, and was composed of as good citizens as northern Illinois contained, many that enlisted as privates rising to field officers in later regiments.

Its colonel, John B. Wayman, organized and commanded the "Chicago Light Guards," the first Crack Corps the Garden City ever had, and he soon brought the Thirteenth to a degree of proficiency in drill and soldierly deportment that was never excelled by any regiment with which it was afterwards associated.

On the 16th of June it was ordered to Caseyville, Illinois, ten miles east of St. Louis, and on the 5th day of July it passed through St. Louis to Rolla. Missouri, where it remained until the spring of 1862.

While stationed at Rolla it was engaged in guarding supply trains to and from General Lyon's army, in suppressing guerrilla bands in that part of the state, and was a part of General Fremont's force that went to Springfield. Missouri, in the fall of 1861, after General Price, when the regiment was well and favorably known as "Fremont's Grey Hounds," a name given to them by General Fremont himself, on the evening the regiment joined his army at Bolivar, in splendid shape, after a day's march of forty-two miles.

In 1862 it joined General Curtis' army at Pea Ridge, two hundred and fifty miles southwest of Rolla, and was with General Curtis in his memorable march from Pea Ridge to Helena, Arkansas, on the Mississippi river.

It was a part of General Sherman's army in his attack upon Chickasaw Bayou, and from that time on became a part of the noted Fifteenth Army Corps, commanded so long by General Sherman in person. In the first day's assault at Chickasaw Bayou, Colonel Wyman was killed. The day following, it was a part of General F. P. Blair's brigade that distinguished itself by approaching nearer to the rebel works than any other command in that part of the field. The losses to the regiment on that day were 183 killed and wounded. It was present at the capture of Arkansas Post, after which it returned to Young's Point, opposite Vicksburg. While there General Steele's division, of which the Thirteenth was a part, made a very successful raid to Greenville. Mississippi, and up Deer creek, driving the rebels out of that region and destroying an immense quantity of corn intended for the rebel garrison at Vicksburg.

HISTORY OF THIRTY-SIXTH INFANTRY.
The Thirty-sixth Infantry, Illinois Volunteers, was organized at Camp Hammond, near Aurora, Illinois, by Colonel N. Greusel, and was mustered into the service by Colonel Brackett, United States mustering officer, September 23, 1861, for a term of three years, or during the war. The regiment numbered nine hundred and sixty-five officers and enlisted men, and had two companies of cavalry ("A" and "B''), one hundred and eighty-six officers and men. On September 24, moved via Quincy, Illinois, to St. Louis, Missouri, where the companies of infantry were armed, Companies "A" and "B" receiving Minie and Enfield rifles, the other companies remodeled Springfield muskets, caliber 69. On September 28 left St. Louis by rail for Rolla, Missouri, leaving the cavalry at Benton barracks. Went into camp at Rolla September 29, remaining there until January 14, 1862, the time being taken up with severe drill, camp and postguard duty, and an occasional scout. Left Rolla January 14. 1862, for Springfield, Missouri, the Thirty-fifth, Forty- fourth and Thirty-sixth Illinois Infantry, and Twenty-fifth Missouri Infantry composing the brigade commanded by Colonel Osterhaus. Passed through Springfield on the 14th of February, halted on the 22d and remained for a few days near Bentonville, Arkansas.

Remaining in camp at this place, "Seven Mile Creek" and "Mill Creek" until December 26, the regiment broke camp and started on the Murfreesboro campaign. On December 31 took part in the battle of Stone River. After the battle and evacuation of Murfreesboro went into camp on the bank of Stone river, on the Shelbyville pike, where it remained until June 24, 1862. The regiment then took part in the Tullahoma campaign, participating in the skirmishes incident to the driving of Bragg's army out of middle Tennessee.

HISTORY OF FIFTY-FIFTH INFANTRY.
The Fifty-fifth Illinois Infantry Volunteers was organized at Camp Douglas, Chicago, and mustered into service October 31, 1861.
It was one of the two regiments raised by David Stuart, its subsequent colonel, under act of Congress, and called the "Douglas Brigade.'' The other regiment was the one afterwards known as the famous "Forty-second Illinois." The two regiments never served together. The Fifty-fifth Illinois was principally made up from bodies of recruits raised in Fulton, McDonough, La Salle, Grundy, DeKalb, Kane and Winnebago counties, and its members were largely young men raised upon farms.
Left Camp Douglas November 9, 1861, over the Chicago & Alton Railroad for Alton, Illinois, thence by steamboat for St. Louis, and arrived at Benton Barracks November u. Remained at Benton Barracks under the immediate command of General W. T. Sherman until January 12, 1862, when it departed for Paducah, Kentucky, by steamer, which place was reached on January 22. The voyage was a tedious and painful one owing to steamer being frozen into ice and aground for many days.
The regiment participated in the expedition sent to Columbus, Kentucky to test the question of its evacuation immediately after the capture of Fort Donelson.
The contest at the latter place was avoided by the regiment in consequence of the utter worthlessness of its arms before that time issued to it.
On March 8, 1862, the Fifty-fifth embarked on steamer to participate in the movement up the Tennessee river, which resulted in the battle of Shiloh, movement on Corinth, etc. On March 15, it landed with other troops at a point several miles above Pittsburg Landing and attempted to cut the railroad in the interior, but this object was defeated by high water.
From that point the expedition dropped down to Pittsburg Landing and went into camp on the front line. It was here brigaded with the Fifty-fourth and Seventy-first Ohio, and Colonel D. Stuart, of the Fifty-fifth, placed in command of the brigade then known as the Second Brigade, Fifth ( Sherman's) Division. Although belonging to Sherman's division, it was located about two miles east of the other three brigades of its division, being in point of fact the extreme left of the army, which met the rebel attack so soon to go into history as the battle of Shiloh.
Prentiss' division was next to its right and front, though about one mile away. The Fifty-fifth with its companion regiments was encamped upon the road leading from Pittsburg Landing to Hamburgh Landing, and near a small branch of Lick Creek.
On the morning of the battle of Shiloh, like all other troops upon the field, it had no premonitions of the fearful conflict to follow, until the report of firearms further to the right gave evidence of that fact. The regiment, under the immediate command of Lieutenant Colonel O. Malmborg, formed the center of the brigade, the Seventy-first Ohio being on its right, and the Fifty-fourth Ohio (Zouaves) upon its left. After forming line in several localities contiguous to its camp, during which time it was not engaged except in skirmishing, though under the fire of Gage's rebel battery, position was taken to the left of its camp and about sixty rods in its rear along the south edge of a precipitous ravine. During the evolutions resulting in this formation the Seventy-first Ohio (excepting eighteen men and its adjutant) retreated.
The position of the regiment at this time was with its right resting at a point precisely five hundred yards east of Colonel Stuart's headquarters, with the Fifty-fourth Ohio upon its left. A full half mile of space unoccupied by troops existed to its right. This dangerous interval had been in part caused by the retreat of the Seventy-first Ohio. No artillery was upon this portion of the field to assist the federal troops. The Fifty-fifth Illinois had exactly five hundred and twelve men in line and the Fifty-fourth Ohio from three hundred and fifty to four hundred.

In this position it was finally attacked by Chalmers and Jackson's Brigades of Bragg's Corps, who had been placed in position at this point under the personal supervision of General Albert Sidney Johnston, the rebel commander-in-chief.
The main attack commenced here about noon, and this position was held until between two and three o'clock p. m. by the two isolated regiments above named, and was of incalculable value to the ultimate success of the Union Army, inasmuch as it defended the extreme left during a vital period from a flank movement contemplated by the rebel order of battle and vigorously attempted at the period spoken of.
After being nearly surrounded and suffering terribly the regiment retreated from point to point and took its position with its organization still complete in the last line formed in the evening near the Landing. It participated in the battle of Monday, acting on the right, and suffered some loss. During this terrific conflict, the first in its history, the Fifty-fifth lost the heaviest of any Federal regiment in that engagement except the Ninth Illinois. The loss of the Fifty-fifth was one officer and fifty-one enlisted men killed and nine officers and one hundred and ninety men wounded, being a total of two hundred and fifty men. Twenty-six men were captured.
The regiment was engaged in the advance on Corinth and lost one killed and eight wounded on May 17.
Entered Corinth May 30, and moved thence westward with General Sherman, stopping for a greater or less period at Chewalla, LaGrange, Lafayette, Moscow and Holly Springs. On July 21, 1862, the regiment reached Memphis with General Sherman's division and remained until November 26, doing camp and picket duty, participating in several expeditions into the interior, having one man wounded. Took part in what was known as the "Tallahatchie" campaign, leaving Memphis November 26, 1862. Returned to Memphis and descended the Mississippi river to take part in the battle of Chickasaw Bayou, where it lost two killed and four wounded.
Was at battle of Arkansas Post January 10 and 11, losing three men wounded.

Its first colonel, David Stuart, who had previously been appointed brigadier general by the President, failed of confirmation and thereupon quit the service in the spring of 1863. Colonel O. Malmborg commanded the regiment during the balance of its three years' term.

April 30, 1863, was with expedition making feint on Maine's Bluff. Thence it proceeded after the army, then making the movement in rear of Vicksburg, overtaking the same in time to be under fire at Champion's Hill, suffering no loss. Crossed the Big Black May 17 at Bridgeport and arrived in front of the works at Vicksburg May 18. Participated in the assaults of May 19 and 22., and bore its full share during the siege, losing fourteen killed and thirty-two wounded.
It lost one man killed while scouting near the Big Black. After being present at the surrender of Vicksburg July 4, the regiment proceeded with Sherman's expedition to Jackson, wherein it lost one killed and two wounded.
Encamped in the vicinity of the Big Black until September 27, 1863, when it embarked at Vicksburg for Memphis and moved thence through Corinth to Iuka. Moved finally across the Tennessee and upon the laborious march to Chattanooga, arriving at that point November 21, 1863. During night of November 23, with rest of brigade, manned fleet of pontoon boats in North Chickamauga creek and during intense darkness descended and crossed the Tennessee and captured the enemy's pickets—one of the most daring operations of the war. At the battle of Mission Ridge, which followed, the regiment lost three wounded.
Marched with Sherman the round trip to the relief of Knoxville. Encamped after return successively at Bridgeport, Bellefonte and Larkinsville during the winter. While at the latter place, after exacting the right to elect officers, the regiment veteranized, at which time the existing field officers all failed of election, and at the end of their term quit the service. The veterans were granted thirty days' furlough from this point. At the opening of the Atlanta campaign the regiment took its place as usual in the Second Division of the Fifteenth Corps and shared in the manifold labors and dangers of that famous campaign, including the movement on and battle of Jonesboro, losing thirty-six killed and eighty-six wounded, being a total of one hundred and twenty-two, or about one-half of its number engaged.
The heaviest loss was at the assault upon Kenesaw Mountain on June 27, 1864, viz.: Fourteen killed, including its gallant commander. Captain Augustine, and thirty-three wounded.
Joined in the pursuit of Hood through northern Alabama and returned to Atlanta, Georgia, where one hundred and sixty-two non-veterans were discharged.

Marched the entire distance on the picnic excursion termed the "March to the Sea." Thence north, and lost near Bentonville, North Carolina, one man killed, one wounded and six taken prisoners.
After surrender of Johnston, regiment marched to Washington via Richmond and took part in the grand review.
The regiment was then ordered to Louisville. Kentucky, where it remained in camp a few weeks. Thence moved by steamer to Little Rock, Arkansas, where it was mustered out August 14, 1865. Arrived at Chicago August 22, where it received final payment and discharge.

During the entire period of its service it received less than fifty recruits, hence all its casualties were from its original members.
This regiment was engaged in thirty-one battles and was one hundred and twenty-eight days under fire. It marched three thousand two hundred and forty miles, traveled by railroad two thousand eight hundred and seventy- five miles and by water a further distance of five thousand eight hundred and fifty miles, total eleven thousand nine hundred and sixty-five miles.
It lost actually killed in battle one hundred and eight men, and its total wounded were three hundred and thirty-nine, making an aggregate of four hundred and seventeen struck with the missies of war. There are no data to state the exact number of mortally wounded, though it is known that thirty-five died from such cause within one year after "Shiloh." Of the men who actually took the field in battle array more than two out of every three were hit by bullets. About one-third of such men lost their lives from the casualties of battle or disease. During the war this regiment had only forty-nine men captured, which speaks volumes for its discipline and cohesion.

It was extremely fortunate in its medical department, Dr. E. O. F. Roler, of Chicago, being its surgeon in chief.
Its chaplain, the Rev. M. L. Haney, was all that could be desired, noted as well for his great personal bravery as for his zealous performance of professional duties.

It is not probable that any other regiment so closely followed the destiny of General W. T. Sherman. It was first in his brigade at Benton barracks, in December, 1861, and thereafter became a member of the Fifth Division, commanded by that general. Subsequently it was always a member of the Second Division of the Fifteenth Army Corps, and following all the footsteps of that general except the Meridian raid. In its various marches it traversed every southern state except Delaware, Texas and Florida.

Owing to its extraordinary losses at Shiloh and receiving no recruits it was small in numbers at all subsequent periods and noted for its proficiency in drill.
After reorganization at the end of its three years' term, it was commanded until nearly the close of its career by its senior captain, when Captain C. A. Andress became lieutenant colonel. Its dead now lie buried in nine different states.

HISTORY OF THE FIFTY-EIGHTH INFANTRY.
The Fifty-eighth Illinois Infantry Volunteers was recruited at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois, on the 11th of February, 1862. The regiment left Camp Douglas, eight hundred and eighty-seven strong, via the Illinois Central Railroad for Cairo, Illinois, and reported to Brigadier General E. A. Paine on the 12th. Was immediately furnished with arms and started from Cairo about midnight, with orders to proceed up the Ohio to Smithland, Kentucky, thence up the Cumberland to the vicinity of Fort Donelson, and report to the officer in charge of United States forces. Arrived near Fort Donelson on the night of the 13111 and disembarked at daybreak, the 14th, having been assigned to the Third Brigade, Third Division, Colonel J. M. Thayer, First Nebraska, commanding.

Was temporarily assigned to the Second Division, General C. F. Smith commanding. On reporting to General Smith was assigned to the brigade of Colonel Lauman, of the Seventh Iowa, and about 11 A. M. 14th was in position, subject to considerable annoyance from the enemy's shell from the fort. In the afternoon two companies were deployed forward and were briskly engaged for a short time. The men suffered exceedingly from the intense cold, no fires being allowed. The men were poorly prepared for the severe task imposed upon them—very few having seen service. The arms furnished them had been condemned and thrown aside by other regiments and there was, in short, no confidence in them whatever. A few casualties occurred during the evening and night. On the morning of the 15th was reassigned to the Third Brigade, Third Division. Was under fire a short time in the morning and in the evening. While attempting to secure an advanced and desirable position was considerably cut up and thrown into confusion by a masked battery, upon which it approached to within two hundred and fifty yards. For a few moments the ranks were considerably broken, the fire being entirely unexpected. By moving to the right, however, a short distance, it was protected from the sweeping fire of grape and canister and reformed, though then exposed to a murderous fire from the enemy's sharpshooters (who swarmed every tree) and skirmishers. Threw out skirmishers and drove back the enemy, and held the same. Night now closed around. When leaving the boats the commissary was directed to bring to the regiment rations for three days, they being unprovided with haversacks. In the many changes made the commissary sergeant was unable to find the regiment and the men got no rations from Friday morning till Sunday morning, when they were procured from the division commissary at daybreak. On the morning of the 16th, Sunday, a white flag was seen waving over the fort, denoting its surrender.

The conduct of the men on this occasion was remarkable; raw men, without rations, and armed with the most worthless guns, they behaved as well as veterans of a hundred battles. Remained at Fort Donelson till the afternoon of Tuesday, the 18th, when it moved on about four miles en route for Fort Henry. Camped for the night and at 7 A.M. the next day resumed the march and arrived at Fort Henry about noon. The roads were almost impassable and consequently the march was a most difficult one. Remaining at Fort Henry till it embarked on the transport "Boston" and went up the Tennessee with the troops commanded by Major General Smith. Arrived at Crump's Landing, about four miles above Savannah, and disembarked. Were at once moved out about eleven miles into the neighborhood of Purdy. During the march it rained incessantly. Remained all night, returning to transports about 9 P.M. Men very much exhausted. Made a capture of a few rebel pickets. Remained on transport till morning, then disembarked and went into camp abput one-half mile from the landing. Remained in camp for several days, drilling and completing organization of the regiment.
On the 2gth of March embarked on steamer and went up to Pittsburg Landing. Having been reassigned to the division of General C. F. Smith, was directed to report to Colonel Sweeney, of the Fifty-second Illinois, and was assigned to his brigade. Went into camp quite near the river, not over one-third of a mile distant. Proceeded to change arms, secured transportation, and in every way completed the organization. On the morning of Sunday, the 6th of April, was awakened by heavy firing from the front; received orders to fall in and await further orders. About 8:30 A. M. was moved out one mile and a half, when orders were received from General Grant, in person, to take position across a road and hold that position. Immediately changed front and took the position as directed. With some slight changes in position, mainly to the front and perpendicular to the front, it occupied the same ground all day. From the time of going into the fight, about 9 A. M., it was almost continually under fire. About 4 P. M. the right and left were giving way, but orders were imperative to hold the position. At length it became evident that unless some change was made the regiment would be taken prisoners. The regiment stood alone. Charge after charge was made by the stubborn and determined foe. To prevent being flanked, the order was given to fall back to the brow of a hill in the rear. Arrived there, found the enemy on our rear (now front) on all sides, and the regiment exposed to a continuous fire. Disorganized portions of regiments were then in the utmost confusion. Orders were given to forward and cut its way out, which could have been done with less loss than was suffered afterward in Southern prisons. About two thousand three hundred officers and men were captured in this fight by the enemy. The surrender did not all take place the same time. The surrender of the Fifty-eighth was made a few minutes before 6. The loss in this engagement was frightful—amounting in killed, wounded and prisoners to upwards of four hundred and fifty. More than three-fourths of those taken prisoners were wounded, and only two hundred and eighteen were taken prisoners. The fact of the regiment being taken was undoubtedly in a great measure the salvation of the army. The right and left were entirely turned, and the enemy, on one wing only, needed to know of the success of the other to press on; but while the center held out they could not know their success. And when at last this small band was forced to succumb, night closed her mantle over the scene and the haughty victors could pursue their advantage no further. Suffering all the privations and hardships which the rebels knew so well how to inflict on their helpless victims, for about seven months, the prisoners, or what was left of them, about one hundred and thirty men, were paroled and allowed to go north. The few men left in camp were strengthened by men returned from hospital and sent from the state as recruits, and participated, with credit, in all the skirmishes and battles consequent on the siege of Corinth. Was engaged at the battle near Iuka and lost twenty-three out of thirty-one in killed, wounded and prisoners.
In December, 1862, different detachments of the regiment were concentrated at Camp Butler, near Springfield, Illinois. Remained at Camp Butler, recruiting and guarding rebel prisoners, until June, 1863, when the regiment was sent to Cairo to garrison that post. Remained at that place till January 1, 1864—in the meantime garrisoning Mound City, Illinois, and Paducah, Kentucky, for the greater part of the time. Some of the companies had a skirmish near Obion River, Kentucky, in October. Companies A and B garrisoned Mayfiekl, Kentucky, and had several slight encounters with rebels at that place.
On the 21st of January embarked on transport and went to Vicksburg, Mississippi. Was assigned to the First Brigade, Third Division, Sixteenth Army Corps, and on the 3d of February left Vicksburg, Mississippi, for Meridian, Mississippi. Was the first regiment to cross the Big Black, the first to engage the enemy at Queen's Hill, and the first infantry regiment to enter Meridian, Mississippi. During this expedition the men were seventy hours with but one day's rations, with which they marched forty-seven miles and destroyed seven miles of railroad. Returned to Vickshurg and was sent with the troops of General A. J. Smith to participate in the Red River campaign. Arrived at Simmsport on the evening of the I2th of March. Disembarked to cook, etc.
On the morning of the I3th moved out from Simmsport about five miles and took possession of two field works, which the rebels evacuated on the approach of the regiment. Returned to the boats in the evening and at 8 o'clock the same night started for Fort De Russey. Arrived at the fort, which it invested, about 4 P. M. on the I4th. A sanguinary struggle ensued, but after a stubborn resistance the enemy surrendered. The colors of the Fifty- eighth were the first planted on the works. The boats having come up, the troops were embarked and proceeded to Alexandria. After great and unnecessary delay at Alexandria, moved up the river (by land about twenty miles, the remainder by water) to Grand Ecore; there disembarked and remained until the 7th of April, when the army of General Smith moved out on the Shreveport road, preceded two days by the Army of the Gulf. During the afternoon of the 8th heavy firing was heard in the advance and on arrival at Pleasant Hill learned that a severe engagement had taken place, in which the troops of General Banks had been signally defeated and were then falling back. A council of war having been held, it was decided to give the enemy battle and early on the following day the lines were formed. About 4 P. M. the rebels, flushed with the victory of the previous day and heavily reinforced by fresh troops from Texas, threw themselves upon the line. A brigade of Maine troops .on the right was speedily driven from the ground. The Fifty- eighth occupied the extreme left of the line, and as the brigade of eastern troops gave way charged on the enemy and poured upon them an enfilading and near fire, which at once turned their flank. Following up this advantage the regiment captured over five hundred prisoners and recaptured from the enemy a battery belonging to the First United States Artillery, which had been taken from General Banks' troops. In this engagement the loss was very heavy. The utmost gallantry was shown, both by officers and men, and to the Fifty- eighth is due the credit of having given the first check to the foe and of taking five-sixths of the prisoners captured during the engagement. Many of the prisoners here taken were the same the regiment guarded in Camp Butler. Though the enemy was most signally defeated, the command was ordered to retreat, and at 3 o'clock A. M. on the loth the army fell back, leaving the dead and wounded on the field, to be cared for by an enemy who was then some sixteen miles distant, retreating as rapidly as possible. Reached Grand Ecore on the 12th and went into camp.
Mustered out at Montgomery, Alabama, April 1, 1866, and ordered t.o Springfield, Illinois, for final payment and discharge.

HISTORY OF THE SEVENTY-SECOND INFANTRY.
The Seventy-second Regiment Illinois Volunteers was organized at Chicago as the First Regiment of the Chicago Board of Trade. Its first bills were put out for one company, calling itself the "Hancock Guards." on July 23, 1862, and exactly one month afterwards (August 23. 1862) the entire regiment was complete and mustered into the service of the United States for three years, or during the war. The very day of their muster they were started off for Cairo, where they arrived on the 24th. Their strength at that time was thirty-seven (37) officers and nine hundred and thirty men.
On the 6th day of September they were ordered out to Paducah. Kentucky, where they went on post duty until the I7th, when they were sent down to Columbus, Kentucky, at which point they did guard and picket duty mainly, until November 21. They were not, however, idle in this time, but in addition to the thorough and constant drilling, which has since made them one of the finest organizations in the army, found time for two expeditions, one to Clarkson, Missouri, on October 6, when they dispersed a rebel camp and captured a number of prisoners, horses, etc.. and the other, on October 21, to New Madrid, which was not so eventful. On November 21 they were ordered to join General Quimby's command, Seventh Division, Seventeenth Army Corps, at Moscow, Tennessee, and with that command they arrived on December 1, 1862, at Lumpkin's Mills, Mississippi, whence they accompanied Grant's army as far as the Yaconapatafa river. Owing to the supplies being cut off at Holly Springs, the army was forced to return, after penetrating as far as the point mentioned, and the Seventy-second was sent as guard to the wagon train to Memphis, Tennessee. There, at a distance of about eight miles from the city, on the line of the Memphis & Charleston Railroad, they went into camp and remained until January 19, 1863, when they were sent into the city and quartered at the navy yard to do provost guard duty. While making Memphis their headquarters the regiment went out on an expedition to Horn Lake Creek, where they dispersed a gang of Blythe's rebel guerrillas, capturing quite a number of them.
On March 1 the division, of which the Seventy-second formed a part, started down the Yazoo Pass, but finding Fort Pemberton in their way and not being able to take it just then, went back. April 23 they landed at Milliken's Bend, Louisiana, and from there marched up with Grant's army to Vicksburg. On May 16 they arrived at Champion Hill, just in time to turn the enemy's left, and by that movement decided the fate of the day. That was their first battle and, fortunately for them, their share in it, although a most important one, was not very severe. On May 17 they found themselves at Big Black, in the rear of Vicksburg, and on the 19th this regiment was the first to open the attack on the rebel stronghold. In the desperate charge of the 22d they participated with the highest honor to themselves, losing some one hundred and thirty of their number killed, wounded and missing, but fighting as bravely as men could fight until the last. From that time until July 4, when the rebels capitulated, the Seventy-second did its duty among the foremost in the siege, and on the capitulation were among the first to enter the city.
On July 12 the Seventy-second embarked for Natchez, Mississippi, where they landed the succeeding day, taking possession of the town, capturing a large number of prisoners, pieces of artillery, confederate government stores, and five thousand head of Texas cattle. Here they remained until October 17, doing provost duty, with the exception of a couple of skirmishes at St. Catherine's Creek, Mississippi, September i, and at Cross Bayou, Louisiana, on September 23.
October 18, 1863, they went on provost guard duty at Vicksburg, Mississippi, where they remained until October 30, 1864. During this year of comparative inaction they only went on two expeditions. The first of these was to Benton, Mississippi, on May 7, 1864, where they had a short but pretty severe fight with a body of rebels; and the second was to Grand Gulf, Mississippi, on July 18.
October 30, 1864, they were ordered to report to Major General Howard, commanding Army and Department of the Tennessee, then with Sherman's army, and in pursuance of this order arrived at Nashville, Tennessee, on November 13. They there found themselves too late to join Sherman in his great "march to the sea," and were ordered to Columbia, Tennessee, to join Major General Schofield's command, which they did on November 21, when Hood crossed the Tennessee river and seemed coming down "like a wolf on the fold." Schofield's army found it convenient to retire towards Nashville. On November 29 they evacuated Columbia, and the Seventy-second was in a severe skirmish with the enemy at Spring Hill, on the road between Columbia and Franklin. On the succeeding day they arrived at Franklin and hastily threw up some light earth works. About 4 o'clock that afternoon Hood attacked them and the battle raged from that hour until midnight with terrific fury. In that fight the Seventy-second lost nine officers out of sixteen engaged and one hundred and fifty-two men, who were either killed or severely wounded. That night they left their works and retreated towards Nashville, which they reached on December 1, and here the Seventy-second was thrown on the extreme right of the Federal lines inclosing Nashville, under command of General A. J. Smith. On December 15 the whole Union army was moved outside its works to give battle to Hood, and on that and the succeeding day the great battle of Nashville took place, resulting in the complete whipping of the "Rebs." From that time until January 3, 1865, they were engaged in the pursuit of Hood's army, following it up closely as far as Clifton, but Hood managed to escape across the Tennessee river. From Clifton the regiment went by boat up the Tennessee river to Eastport, Mississippi, arriving there January 13, 1865, and there remaining in quarters until February 9, making in that time but one expedition, and that a fruitless one to Iuka and Corinth, Mississippi.
February 9 they started for New Orleans, where they arrived February 21. Until March 21 they remained in camp eight miles below the city and then they were embarked and taken across the gulf to Dauphin Island, Alabama, where they arrived on March 17. The next day the,brigade, which included the Seventy-second, crossed over to the main land on the western shore of Mobile bay. Here they remained a few days, skirmishing with the enemy, when, having accomplished the object of the expedition, which was merely a feint on Mobile from that direction, they rejoined the army at Fish river, near Smith's Mills, Alabama.
On March 26 the corps to which they were attached moved, and on the morning of the 27th appeared in front of Spanish Fort. From that time until the night of April 8 the regiment was actively engaged in the siege. At 5 o'clock on the evening of the 8th the Union troops were ordered up into the first line of their works. The attack began and at near midnight the First Brigade (including the 72nd) and the Third Brigade, Sixteenth Army Corps, charged on the enemy's works and carried them, capturing the fort. The next morning they moved out on the road to Blakely, when their division was held in support of the other divisions charging the enemy's works at that place. The place having been taken, the command went into camp here until the I4th, on which date they moved forward on the road to Montgomery. Alabama, marching over the two hundred miles to that place in exactly eleven days. At Montgomery they remained in camp until May 23, when they were ordered to Union Springs, Alabama, forty-five miles from Montgomery. There they remained, doing post duty, until July 19, when they started on their homeward journey.
On August 6 they were mustered out of the service at Vicksburg and thence marched.directly home to Chicago.
During their term of service they received some four hundred and fifty recruits, and when ordered home they transferred two hundred and seventy of these to the Thirty-third Regiment Illinois Veteran Volunteers at Meridian, Mississippi. They brought home twenty-two officers and three hundred and ten men.
In an attack upon some of the regiment by a gang of drunken rebels at Yerger's Landing, on their way home, private Levi Derby, of COMPANY E, was killed, and Sergeant Major Blake was so seriously injured by a pistol shot that his life was endangered.
The following little table of statistics is furnished by the adjutant of the regiment and gives some idea of what their service has been:

March, 1865, moved to Bull's Gap, east Tennessee. May, 1865, moved to Nashville, where it remained until its muster out.
During the period of its service the regiment was always in the front. It was never upon garrison duty. Its losses in the engagements in which it participated aggregate two-thirds of its number; and its conduct in every battle was such as to merit and receive the commendation of its brigade, division and corps commanders. For its conduct at Stone River, Mission Ridge and Franklin it was made the subject of special mention.
The regiment was mustered out June 9, 1865, at Nashville, Tennessee, and arrived at Chicago June 13, 1865, where it received final pay and discharge June 22, 1865.

HISTORY OF EIGHTY-NINTH INFANTRY.

The "Rail Road Regiment" was organized by the railroad companies of Illinois, at Chicago, in August, 1862. Captain John Christopher, Sixteenth United States Infantry, was appointed colonel, and Charles T. Hotchkiss. lieutenant colonel. It was mustered into the United States service August 27.
Ordered to Louisville, Kentucky, September 4, and was assigned, by Major General Wright, commanding Department of Ohio, to Third Brigade, Colonel Woodruff; Second Division, General Cruft; Army of Kentucky, General Nelson. Assigned October 1 to Sixth Brigade, General Willich; Second Division, General Sill; McCook's Corps of Buell's Army.
The regiment, on leaving Louisville, started in pursuit of the rebel forces under General Bragg, and, after a fruitless and wearisome march of a month, reached Bowling Green, Kentucky. At this point the tenth company, F, joined the regiment. When in the service but about four months, it took an active part in the memorable battle of Stone River, where, by its gallant conduct, the men soon became classified among the old, tried soldiers. It did well, and among the heroes who that day died in liberty's cause was Captain Henry S. Willett, of Company H.
On the 7th of January, 1863, Colonel Christopher, who had never joined the regiment, resigned. The line of promotion then ensuing made Captain William D. Williams, of Company F, major.
At Liberty Gap another loss was sustained: Captain Herbert M. Blake, Company K, a truly brave and efficient officer, fell mortally wounded. Chickamauga seemed to affix the seal of its devotion. There fell Lieutenant Colonel Duncan J. Hall, Captains Rice, Spink and Whiting, and Lieutenant Ellis, besides the scores of brave men who fought with noble heroism, and who dared to "do and die" in defense of the "old flag."
Upon the reorganization of the Army of the Cumberland the regiment was transferred, with Willich's command, to its new position in the First Brigade, Third Division, Fourth Army Corps. At Missionary Ridge it again encountered the foe, scaling the enemy's entrenchments and driving him from them. In this charge fell those gallant officers, Lieutenant-E. O. Young, Company A, and Captain Henry L. Rowell, Company C.
It then marched to the relief of Burnside, besieged at Knoxville. This accomplished, it moved on with the brigade, in the marches and counter marches through East Tennessee.
Early in April, 1864, it marched with the command to southern Tennessee, preparatory to General Sherman's glorious campaign through northern Georgia, for the occupation of Atlanta.
With the brigade, it participated in the splendid victories of Rocky Face, Resaca, Pickett's Mills, Kenesaw Mountain, Peach Tree Creek, and the flank movement of Atlanta, and pursued the rooted enemy in his retreat to Jones- boro and Lovejoy's Station.
On this campaign Lieutenant Nathaniel Street, of Company D, and Captain William Harkness, Company A, offered up their lives a sacrifice to their country.
After the unsuccessful attempt of the rebel forces to destroy the railroad communications of the army between Atlanta and Chattanooga, the regiment rendered very important service, while on detached duty, in repairing the damages on the railroad inflicted by the enemy.
On the 30th of October, 1864, the regiment was ordered to rejoin the command at Pulaski, Tennessee. It participated in the brilliant achievements of Spring Hill, Columbia, Franklin and Nashville, in the latter of which fell Lieutenant P. G. Taite, of Company G, pierced by a cannon ball. Subsequently it pursued Hood's shattered forces in their flying retreat across Tennessee.
It passed winter quarters at Huntsville, Alabama, in January, 1865, and on the ist of February traveled by railroad for Nashville, and after lying there five days, returned to Camp Green. About the middle of March, the command embarked on the cars for East Tennessee, to reestablish communications through to Virginia, and prepare to repel rebel invasion.
On the surrender of Lee's army, further movements in that section were abandoned, and the Fourth Corps returned by cars to Nashville, to muster out of service its non-veterans.
On the loth of June, 1865, the regiment was mustered out of the United States service, in the field, near Nashville, Tennessee. Left there June 10, by the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago Railroad, and arrived in Chicago on the night of June 12, 1865, and was discharged at Camp Douglas, on the 24th of June, 1865, making its term of service two years, nine months and twenty- seven days.
